Ok, so I haven't been shooting much recently because I've been busy with other projects. But...I've got the itch. Shoot me a message and let's set a date, would ya?
Current project interests
I am currently interested in the following projects to expand my portfolio:
A. Makeup: I would love to work with MUAs to shoot either some dark, edgy glamor makeup pics or to play with bright colors. Candy, tears, sparkles, face painting? I'm open!
B. Clothing: Currently I am actively attempting to work with more clothing designers to help expand design portfolios. I am interested in trade for stock and promotional photos. Besides my modeling, my involvement in the local burlesque and Rocky Horror scenes could help you gain visibility. If you are a designer, let's chat details!
C. Fashion: I would like to pursue a bit more involvement in local fashion. I am interested in modeling for local designers--both for boutiques as well as for local fashion shows.
What am I like? Well, I'm goofy and giggly while simultaneously completely serious about my art. I am not a flake. I take my commitments seriously. I am available for "on the whim" shoots and sometimes these turn out to be my best work. If you call me "on a whim," I can easily be wooed with coffee and bagels.
I am available for several types of shoots. If you have an idea or concept, please send me a note and we can discuss if our styles will work together. I have my limitations and I have my interests. If you are up front with me, then I will be up front with you. Please note also that as a general rule and safety precaution I prefer to meet with photographers ahead of time in a safe environment before agreeing to shoot and I also require proper contact information before shooting.
I have been shooting a lot of TFCD projects recently. I would like to request that if we do a TFCD shoot I also am given the opportunity to select one or two prints for my portfolio. Thanks in advance!
My interest in photography comes from my belief that the female body--every female body--is beautiful just as it is. I model because i am confident with myself and empowered by who I am. I am interested in shoots that are soft and subtle, yet simultaneously empowering. I am interested in shoots that imply more than show, that accentuate and encourage visual surrender. I would love to also be involved in some more industrial glamour and concept shoots. I appreciate edgy indie photography with clean lines and hard shadows.
I want my photos to portray that time when ego is pushed aside--when I am no longer wearing any masks, and my true beauty within is allowed to emerge because I have fully released myself to the emotions and the moment. I would like to work with those who are interested in capturing on camera a more intrinsic depth of meaning, which encompasses the soul, release, freedom, and empowerment.
My main interest continues to be in gallery projects. I am excited to continue to be involved more in the expansion of visual art in Kansas City. If you have some upcoming projects in mind, please consider including me.
Finally, one thing that I love about photographers and MUAs is that they have the ability to see me in a way that I might never be able to see myself. When you look at me, what do you see? Does something specific come to mind that I have not been able to capture? If you look at me and see something unique, let me know. What can I be? How will your lens capture me? How can I take upon your good idea and build it to make it great? I'm always looking to expand my repertoire, to be something different, to try something new. I want to see myself the way that you see me.
