My name is Kristine Diven and I am a passionate female photographer and fine artist who recently located herself in Detroit MI from NY three years ago. To see my work in art, photography, and sculpture, plus learn more about my gallery-studio space, District VII Detrroit, please visit iluvdetroit.com (as it is much more comprehensive than what you will find here if you are hoping to learn about me as an artist.)
Info: I come equipped with tons of props & costuming, fabulous locations, a small 5 pound yorkie (MM#1014653,) a three pound Chihuahua and a 60 pound boxer street dog mix. I travel a lot for my love & pursuit of abandoned/decayed settings and adventure, so I offer shoots in other areas as well. I love shooting fashion, couture, pin up, head shots, natural light shots, nudes, victorian steampunk and shoots with darker themes. Additionally, I enjoy shooting test shots that I can use in my encaustic mixed media art.
I shoot under a few aliases, this portfolio is my more alternative fashion work shot in 2006-2009, newer work, including my 2009-2011 fine art project of almost 200 nude self portraits in abandoned buildings across America, can be seen on my Detroit profiles. I strongly prefer interesting scenes to plain paper backdrops, both in studio or on location, and I have multiple sets designed in my studio and also scout locations daily. Always looking for agency look models and models willing to do tasteful nudes (though sadly, I rarely find free time to TF...) or Victorian styled editorial work.

My styling profile on MM is located here: http://modelmayhem.com/member.php?id=719320
I will accept paid work for styling but remember my time is valuable (and limited) in whatever I do, and my victoriana, medical/neck braces, vintage lingerie, latex collections and other props are fragile and important to me. So I usually won't do it trade unless we are doing something really unique or beneficial. I'm a very friendly maternal person, but am also intensely passionate about life. My art photography, my studio, my gallery and my travels keep my schedule tight, and my free time is spent with family, best friends, doing volunteer work and helping others.
