I am an Art Education Major and artist/artisan in the North Shore area. I am looking to work with people who have the right attitude. I love art, I love to be the art, and make the art. I want the whole piece to be great, every part viewed as important and it all to come together, THAT is a work of art. I don't want to just be a model but a collaborator as well. I have many ideas and am always open to trying out new ones. I love to promote my fellow artists because I strongly believe in helping each other grow.
I do EXTREMELY LIMITED TFP/TFCD. Please do not take it personally if I deny your request to do trade work. For me, my rates are not really about the money so much as about assuring that we both get something out of the shoot. Therefore, I will only agree to a trade if I believe it will be a fair one. If you contact me I assume you are looking to cast/hire me. If I contact you it is because I am promoting myself. If you are interested in doing trade work, please present me with an original concept and we can discuss a fair trade.
I feel the need to explain this further since so many photographers get very offended if I deny their request for trade work and it leads to tense conversations I just rather not have. So please read further instead of wasting both of our time or attacking me for my choices. See, the problem is that I have had on way too many occasions, photographers not get images to me, or only give me selected images which are not ones that I want, or they take 6 plus months to get images to me, etc. Every single one of them had good references, promised me they wouldn't do this, etc. I was even friends with some of these photographers, bless their hearts, but this does typically happen with photographers that I don't know. So, I just don't like to do it anymore. If I do a shoot there needs to be a contract and it it's a trade shoot it needs to be pretty strict on my end to protect me from wasting my time. I don't need anymore portraits of me, I have a ton and it's not what I plan to do with the rest of my life, I have other priorities. So, honestly, the modeling at this point is for money, not for images. However, I will occasionally do a shoot for trade if it is a really awesome and artistic concept that will be fun for us.
