About Me

Twitter|Facebook|Instagram|Deviantart|IMDB

My Basic Industry Background

-10 years Professional Modeling Experience including Int'l Print Work
-8 years Professional Film & TV Experience including Nat'l Commercials
-Interactive Media Experience (Video Games) specifically Motion Capture

Additional Background Info

-Pro Costumer with experience in theme parks, concerts, print, & theater.
-Extensive one-of-a-kind wardrobe featuring $600+ wings, $200+ hats, and numerous handmade costumes and props.
-Some strange places I've posed: on-top of a 5 ft high skylight on a 4 story roof, in cemeteries, and IN a 3 ft deep fountain.
-Working with me often results in tearsheets as I submit to print w/ permission.

Booking

I am available for: Limited TF*, Limited Trade/Tear*, and Paid work.  (That's it.)

Limited TF*
I am only shooting TF* on an "as needed" basis with predominantly photographers I've worked with in the past. 

There's 1 exception to this, "an ideal costume photographer."  In regards to costume shoots, this is what I look for:

         Photographers with portraits that display visible lighting prowess,
         either in studio or on location, with a diverse cast of models.  Bonus
         if these images depict surreal, sci-fi, or fantasy settings.  Example:
         http://www.thezeldaproject.net

Paid Work
Why should you pay me?
-You need help with lighting, composition, and/or locations.
-You want to work with an *experienced* model/actress.
-You want to use the images for commercial purposes.
-You want to shoot something with me that I don't typically shoot/need.
Note: My rates are reasonable with half-day, whole day, and student rates. 

Limited Trade/Tear*
I am not above paying for images.  However, I don't have any issues updating my portfolio with TF offers alone.  BUT if you're one of the Chad Michael Wards/Viva Van Story's of the world, and specifically working with you will get me paid work, I'm willing to barter.  I'm capable of offering tearsheet opportunities AND/OR trade.  (Sadly, I doubt I could afford your services if cash is the only option.)

The following are up for trade:
-Services, including, but not limited to: wardrobe, make-up, and photo assisting.
-Materials: My hats handmade, and worth upwards of $200.  My costumes are the same and can be worth as much, or more, than $500.
-Commercial-use: Images for stock photography, workshop modeling, etc.
-I am also open to your suggestions/ideas.

*= FYI, if you send me your rates (without me requesting/prompting them), I will send you mine.  This is the only offer I have on the table for photographer compensation.

Availability

If you'd like to know what I'm doing, and when, please go to my Facebook link.

No Friend Collecting!

I'm no longer accepting random FR.  If you send me an FR, please be someone who's either (a) realistically interested in working with me, (b) someone I HAVE worked with, and/or (c) someone I've met in real life.

Please note that if your profile consists of predominately traditional glamour and nude shots (with no links to other styles of work), I will decline your request unless it's accompanied with an appropriate project explanation.

If I FR you, I'm interested in collaborating!!!
