****************** Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ANNOUNCEMENT: Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ******************
ATTENTION ALL MODELS: Due to my insane school and performance schedules, I am on a hiatus from traveling until late May 2015. You are welcomed to inquire about a weekend between now and then, if you're willing to travel to me. Otherwise, I will be on break until then.

ATTENTION LA MODELS: I hope to be in LA sometime late this summer. If you are interested in working with me, please send me an inquiry, so that I can get a head count and an idea of how many days I'll need to plan for. Thank you. 

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ About The Photographer:  Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ

Hi, my name is Josefina and I'm a full time internationally known (bicoastal) photographer & retoucher & college student. I travel quite frequently, school or no school, and all travel dates are always posted. I've been working with cameras since I was a child - and have worked with film, darkroom development, digital and graphic design.

Currently, I'm looking to expand my portfolio, and to expand my publications list. If you have an amazing concept or a brilliant idea, don't hesitate to contact me. Art is a very serious passion of mine, and I love meeting new people and working with all the various talents in the world.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Upcoming Travel Listings: Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ


A Few Things To Note:

• I RARELY do any type of TF shooting anymore. I am a very busy person, and a full time college student, I do not have the time or the money to go around meeting people for free. I simply don't. I also do charge for Portfolio Building and Head Shots (don't worry, my rates are reasonable), but these take the most time to shoot and the most time to edit, and for that, I ask for some compensation. I will consider TF for people I have previously worked with, concepts/themes/people/publications that are absolutely amazing and I wouldn't want to miss out on. Please keep this in mind with communicating with me. You will have to blow my mind to get me to agree to come to you on my dime...especially if it's across country.

• I am a female photographer - unless you are new to modeling, have overprotective parents/boyfriends/girlfriends, etc, or under the age of 16 - please do NOT bring an escort. I have had bad experiences with escorts & I'd rather not deal with that again. thank you.

• Models, please, please, PLEASE, don't be late!

• Bring you drivers license, or other form of ID with you on the shoot. You will need to sign a model release form, and I will need a picture of your ID. If you are under the age of 18: I will need a copy of ID from you and a set from your parents. Both you & your parents will be signing documents. No exceptions!

• THERE WILL BE ABSOLUTELY NO DRUGS OR ALCOHOL PRESENT WHILE I AM SHOOTING. I cannot believe I actually have to put there this here...but this has legitimately happened before. I am a professional, I certainly don't want to waste your time, and I cannot stand when people waste mine. If you feel the need to drink the night before the shoot and you know that you're going to be hung-over - do us both a favor and cancel the shoot. Same with your drug usage. I will not have that stuff anywhere near me, and as a professional, you shouldn't have it anywhere on you. If I find out that you have brought either the shoot - the shoot will be cancelled on the spot and you will NOT be receiving a refund. End of discussion.   

• If you are hesitant about getting in water/squeemish about fish, let me know in advance, because we will likely be doing something with water, if we shoot outdoors. And if you agree to get in the water - don't complain about the temperature. Chances are I will be in the water, about thigh deep, with you.

• Do your homework, and be prepared. I love models that move on their own, and bring a particular element/attitude to a shoot. Practice in front of a mirror, study poses in portfolios, iDoll magazines, or in any Vogue magazine. Make sure that you have slept and you have plenty of energy - grab some Starbucks on the way here. If you think you're going to be too nervous, or you aren't really prepared for a shoot - keep me in mind, and get back to me later.

• I do, do retouching outside of my own shoots - so if you are interested in me retouching your images, please contact me. Thank you.
