I have been working as a model for over 6 years and have experience in a variety of genres. I pose like a fashion model, but I don’t like to be pigeonholed as one. Lingerie, alternative, tattoo, beauty, commercial, avant garde and everything in between – I enjoy being versatile and like a challenge.
I’m happy to work with photographers and creative’s regardless of their experience – everyone starts somewhere.
I am a professional make-up artist first (both beauty counter work and freelance) and can do my own face (and others) to an exceptional standard. I specialise in high end beauty and avant garde/conceptual. As I also work in a beauty retail environment – I can create a look quickly, which means more time to shoot. I am happy to use another artist if it’s more suitable – I can even give you recommendations!
I do prefer using hair stylists for a more polished look. I can only do the basics to the standard of my make-up.
I have access to a lot of wardrobe given enough notice. I am sponsored by a few brands/designers that are happy to pull something from current collections or make custom pieces. Styling is my favourite part of the creative process – I personally have a huge wardrobe. Chances are if you want something specific – I already have or can get hold of it.
Please note I will only shoot for specific latex designers that I have a good working relationship with.
I have set prices but do offer discounts for half/full days. Rates are available on request. I will work to budgets.
I do take selective TFP which is usually for people who I have a great working relationship with. But please don’t let that put you off asking! If I like your work and/or the concept of the shoot I will say yes without hesitation – especially if you are willing to contribute to travel costs.
I am willing to travel anywhere to shoot providing my travel expenses are covered. If the shoot is more than an hour away, I generally get the bus to avoid high costs and make it easier for everyone involved.
I arrive fresh faced (unless requested otherwise) and in loose clothing to avoid unnecessary marks.
I take direction well but feel free to leave me to my own devices – I am very aware of my own body and know what looks good for my figure.
My levels are up to topless – please respect and do not push this under any circumstances. I will work up to nude for long standing collaborators who have known for years, but it is something I will voice if I am comfortable with it. No exceptions.
• Ear lobe piercings (both ears).
• Nose piercing (right nostril specifically).
• Nipple piercings (both).
• Framed eye of providence tattoo down my spine (takes up a fairly large amount of my upper back)
• Mandala half sleeve
I am happy to remove my piercings and cover my tattoos for the right job.
