(Please read this profile entirely before contacting me to shoot.)
I am a model, artist, actor, musician, stylist, aerialist, and variety performer in the Seattle area. I am a chameleon; a prolific and expressive model, and can create dynamic characterizations and sets applicable to art, fetish and horror modeling as well as being statuesque for editorial and fashion applications.
I most enjoy working on projects that appear other worldly or very high fashion, high contrast, high key or have a deeper meaning/story to the images. Elaborate, simple, whatever - visually stunning, striking, a little odd, and strangely sexy is my soft spot.
I like to arrive to my shoots prepared and on time, and do not appreciate flaking or being flaked on. Often I will send preview images of outfits and ideas as I brainstorm a few days before a shoot. I am silly and sometimes make faces. I snort when I laugh. I cuss.
I can do my own makeup and styling when required. I also create awesome dread wigs that are great for fantasy, goth, and fetish shoots. (http://fakehair.net
I do not own a car. I bus to local Seattle shoots, and either secure a carpool or ride to regional shoots or borrow a car as part of my preparation before committing to a shoot.
My hair is about an inch long, just starting to get scruffy after a buzz cut this summer, and my natural medium brown color, which is slowly graying.
I have a substantial tattoo on my low back, and scars on my thighs which are easily photoshopped. I also have a nubbin. I love it, but you can get rid of it in post if you wanna.
My hourly rate is $80 an hour, $550 a day, and IS NEGOTIABLE - I like to be paid, and I also enjoy the collaborative nature of this work. If you are excited to work with me and have ideas, please contact me to discuss your project and budget.
I love traveling, however I am unable to do it for free/straight TFP. It is a point of necessity, not (always) of pride; I am a working artist and simply do not have the expendable income to travel for a project without recouping the cost to me of doing so.
I HAVE A PASSPORT, and will LOVE travel to model for you under the following circumstances:
1) in exchange for flights, hotel and a minimum 2 hours booked
2) For TFP (see below) + travel expenses
I am interested in portfolio building TFP shoots involving experienced MUA's, Wardrobe Stylists and Hair Designers. EXAMPLES of the kinds of TFP projects that would entice me: http://www.modelmayhem.com/list.php?lis … p;id=39251
I will likely consider TFP with you regardless of number of team members involved if:
1) The quality of your images are equal to or greater than those in my portfolio
2) The shoot is for a print publication.
3) The style of your work is something I don't have for my portfolio, and I want it.
Priority is often given to skilled photographers who are open to sharing large sized images of the entire shoot with me, especially if it is of my concept/costuming/hair/styling/MUA.
