I have been out of the modelling business for a while so the images in my portfolio are not current but the only real difference is that my hair is now about shoulder length.
I have 2 tattoos...a small circular one on my left wrist and one that starts between my shoulders and ends at my lower back.
I am interested in doing creative projects. I used to make my living modelling but now have a full time job that leaves me very little free time. I would like to get back into doing some creative modelling so if you have an idea for a project I would love to hear from you. I want to do things that are out of the ordinary, stretches boundaries, tells a story, etc. If you look at the images I have placed in my lists, it will give you a feel for the type of images I mean when I say creative. As a side note on that though... while I have many nudes in my list that I find beautiful and inspiring, I do not pose for nudes myself.
I am a complete nerd so chances are if you have an idea that involves fantasy, sci fi, dressing up, video games, comic books, quirky off the wall ideas, etc. I will be interested.
I am not trying to become a professional model and I don't aspire to being in magazines, so if you are looking for someone to do a hundred variations of "look sexy" I am not who you are looking for. I want to work with other artists to collaborate on creating art. I want to create images that are ethereal, moody, fantastical, or transport you to another world.
I also enjoy doing photography myself. I have both a photography and a retouching page on this site, though unfortunately I don't remember the login info to access and update them. You can check them out at http://www.modelmayhem.com/1566460 and http://www.modelmayhem.com/1566888 . So, if you are a model I have contacted from this page...you know why. :)
My goal is the art rather than the modelling. I like creating it both in front of and behind the lens, on the computer, and with a paint and brush. Often I like melding these mediums into something completely new. My motivation is not in making money off the shoots either. I work way too much as it is and what little time I don't have to be working is precious. If you want a model or photographer that is creative, expressive, a little crazy, wants to tell a story or express a mood than send me a message. If you are looking for a pretty/sexy shoot than contact one of the many others interested in doing that on this page.
Also, please honor the agreements that we come to. It gives all photographers a bad name when you agree to trade for a shoot, get your free model, than never provide your end of the bargain.
