I am a very experienced body painting artist, I work in classic and airbrush.
Most my work shown here at MM is just off the cuff designs painted for fun. My full portfoilio is available upon request to those interested in hiring me.
Now- Booking TF Body Paint Models for the fall of 2014 - I prefer to work weekdays and weekday evenings. I will do weekends as my schedule permits but paid gigs override this. I will be working in studio in Yuba City, CA.
Always interested in connecting with talented models for full and partial body paintings, face art and extreme makeup shoots.
Experience is a major plus, but not needed, professional attitude is a must. Dancers are a plus, plus. I need models who can bring it. It's just not worth my time to paint a pretty face, my art needs an artist model.
Unless you hire me generally I entertain your concepts only after I work with you in an ongoing relationship. Modeling body paint, really creating body painting photographs, is a marriage of arts and talents. You bring the modeling talent I bring the painting artwork.
If you are talented, beautiful and mature, if you understand how to create art with what you do as a model, I am a happy to discuss working together. I prefer ongoing collaborations as opposed to one time shoots.
I don't like towork with escorts on site. I will meet prior to paint/shoots.
I am not interested in working with models who want to be body painters.
I work with artists - models and photographers, MUA and stylists.
MODELS UNDER AGE 18::
I do not add/friend models or do full body paint with models under age 18. I actually prefer models over 21. However I get many requests from young models - I do work with minors for face art, extreme face makeup art, FX work (like zombie shoots), cosplay and such that allows for extreme makeup or partial body paint that allows for costuming and clothing.
I give consideration to trade work based on the project. I find concept shoots require more of everyone involved, certainly more of my time and expense. So I prefer not to TF on those complicated concepts. However -
I am interested in shoots that are interesting and will produce amazing concepts.
I am not interested in working with photographers who want to be body painters. Professionals who are talents as artists and want to make amazing art are my preferred "partners in crime".
My artwork as a major focus in the final photograph is as valuable as your art.
For trade work requests I require equal copyright with photographers. And require licensing rights for paid work. Ethical artists who are photographers understand this.
I will discuss all trade, but I am for hire.
My rates are reasonable and affordable. I am not a MUA nor a stylist. I do extreme makeup and body painting, along with SFX makeup effects.
I am very experienced. References upon request.
I am on time, and come prepared, willing to stay as needed.
If you want body painting, please don't settle and don't DIY, hire a professional and experienced body painter. Find out how that makes all the difference. Out of the area I am happy to refer you to artists. Call me and we can discuss any project.
