Semi-retired. Still shooting, but with a very limited schedule.
Moving to Phoenix, AZ May 1st, 2013.
-This is my portfolio specific to nudes/figure work. My non-nude portfolio is: Ashley Haven #533105
I'm a nude modeling veteran. I've been doing this professionally for over 8 years, and I was a full time traveling model for over 6 years. I've recently cut back on my modeling to focus on my family and school. My fiance's work schedule (along with taking care of my kids) doesn't allow me to travel much anymore, but I still shoot when I can.
Not currently accepting trade work, as I have a very large up-to-date portfolio showing my current look. Please contact me for rates.
I love shooting with people who are just starting out. I'm NEVER too good to work with anyone. Everyone has to start somewhere, and I'm more than happy to help you get some great shots! Please don't be intimidated by my experience or portfolio, I just care that you *act* professional with me. I will treat your shoot like any other shoot and give you my best effort.
Yes, I do have wardrobe. Mostly glam type lingerie, and some other basics that every model should have. If you're wanting something very specific, most likely you will need to provide it. I'm more than happy to find what you're looking for and pick it up before the shoot if I'm being reimbursed (assuming it's something I don't want to keep).
I have tons. Those listed on my top 12 are all people I've worked with and can provide you with their opinion of how our shoot went. You're more than welcome to contact anyone credited in my portfolio as well, or ask me who my most recent shoots were with.
I'm not traveling much these days, so unfortunately unless you can come to me, I probably won't be in your area. The exception to this is the Portland, Oregon area, where I still makes trips to.
I can do my own basic makeup and hair, but if you want a very professional result or something more elaborate, please hire a professional for this. I wear my makeup and hair the same basic way day-to-day, and don't claim to be extremely skilled with either.
I prefer to keep important details about the shoot in MM messages. I will talk to you on the phone, if that is your preference, but will request that you send me a summary of our conversation in a message here. I shoot multiple times per week (sometimes per day), and need to keep written details of the shoot to stay organized. I'm not anti-phone call, I'm anti-disorganization.
Yes, I always have current, unretouched, no makeup snapshots that I'm more than happy to send you if needed. Just ask!
Working with Others:
I LOVE working with other models, so don't hesitate to contact me about multiple model shoots. Please make sure everyone is clear on limits though, as I don't want to offend another model by doing something outside of his/her comfort zone. I always do my best to check with them myself, but I appreciate the photographer thinking about this as well. Also, I do have some erotic work in my portfolio with another female model. This model is my best friend, so our comfort level is slightly different than throwing me into a shoot with a stranger.
Friend Requests, Image Comments, Etc.:
Feel free to add me as a friend, this is a networking site after all. However if you expect me to know you have an interest in hiring me from a friend request, tag or image comment, you're mistaken. I rarely read my photo comments, and don't take "friend request hints" well. Please message me if you're interested in working together. Thanks!
What do *I* want to shoot?
I've shot a lot, so many of my ideas have already been used. I would like to do a shoot with my husky/timber wolf puppy, and I have a soft spot for both guns and cars, so I always enjoy shooting with those. I love black and white gritty images, and really pretty natural light work. I'm always up for helping you elaborate on a concept you have as well.
-I do have tattoos. All but one are very small. The only one larger than a silver dollar is the tattoo on my back which is a phrase that runs down the length of my spine. You're more than welcome to photoshop them out if you choose, I will not be offended.
-I wear glasses. I'm totally willing to shoot in them, but don't need to wear them all of the time. Unless you live with me or drive with me, you probably don't know I wear them.
-Yes, I have two children. No, I don't have stretch marks.
"Ashley is just the greatest to work with. You can give her an idea of a situation and what kind of images that you are looking for and she just morphs into character and poses flawlessly. I look forward to our next shoot together." -Edward Kearney
