About me
Hello! I'm an experienced model with a non-standard body and a physical disability. Currently pursuing funky, avant-garde, fun, funny, weird, creative, artistic, unusual & fashion-related projects. Most likely, you've never shot a model like me or ever will. I'm offering you a rare chance to test & challenge your craftsmanship & your artistic ability. (Also, if you're a fashion designer that's passionate about creating decent, beautiful clothes for people with disabilities- I'd love to be your model and/or spokesperson (have lots of experience with public speaking)). Travel is possible. I will expect a decent amount of quality photos in a timely manner, from non-paid TFCD shoots especially- my time is just as valuable as yours, so please respect that. That is all you NEED to know. But if you want details, here they are:

I was born and grew up in Siberia. My ethnic heritage is very mixed-- I have some Russian, Circassian, German, Mongolian, Chinese, and blood from several Native Siberian Tribes. One of the unique things about me is where most people's eye whites are actually white, mine are bright blue.

I have a disability that requires me to walk with forearm, cane-like, crutches. So please keep in mind that outdoor places and stairs can be very hard for me. On rare occasions I use a wheelchair. If you're interested in working with me, please feel free to ask any questions you want & I'll do my best to answer them!

I'm open to collaborating with other models: male, female, or otherwise for cool, interesting projects. I'm very easy-going, not a diva (but can be, if you try to be one with me!), don't play head games. I know what poses work for me, but can take direction as well. Sometimes I have a specific idea in mind and will ask if you'd shoot that, sometimes I'd like to be your canvas- project your ideas onto me! I like to laugh & joke a lot-- on shoots & outside, but always keep it professional & appropriate for the setting/ company present.

I've done my own makeup & hair in all photos, unless otherwise specified under the picture. I always bring my own shoes & clothing to shoots, but I could also wear clothes you have, but be aware they may not always fit. Shoes you might have will not fit! Please don't insist on me trying them out. I always show up for shoots & arrive on time. The only time I ever missed a shoot was when a photographer's assistant sent me wrong address to be at.

I love many forms of art! Aside from photography, I've worked with several artists as a painting/drawing model, live & from photos, I'm always looking to do more of that!

Right now I'm mostly confined to Caldwell, ID area, but can visit other states, if travel expenses are compensated. I visit Seattle, WA sometimes- if you're there, shoot me a line if you're interested. If I'm traveling to another state, I'll provide any receipt you wish to see. I'm mostly looking for paid shoots, but willing to do TCFD if you have original, unique ideas-- if you look at my photos and it sparks your imagination to create something interesting/ intriguing/ fabulously amazing! smile Also, if you have a project in mind for a charity or a non-profit-- I'm in!

I no longer do Time for Print-- prints are useless to me, I'm not trying to get into a modeling agency. 

++FRIEND REQUESTS: please, PLEASE send msg/tag first, so that I know whether you're interested in working with me & in what capacity, thanks!++

Photography & art styles I'm interested in:

*emotive/expressive *conceptual *mixed with graphics *fantasy/fairytale *lingerie *cosplay *exoctic/tribal/cultural/historical *body/face paint *steampunk *retro/pinup *intense make-up *fashion/glamour *goth/dark *unusual/ unique portrait *other stuff that didn't come to my mind-- let me know, I'll definitely at least consider & will always get back to you smile

I've been modeling for several years now. It's a hobby, a mission, a small part-time job & a way to remember good times when I get much older. I've worked with many photographers and several hair and make-up artists; on a few shoots I collaborated with other models & really enjoyed it.
