Read this first:
1. Listed locations = Where I am and/or where I'm going next...NOT where I live. I currently have no home base. Check my travel schedule or inquire directly.
2. Interested in working with me? If you include your location in the subject line, it'll make my life a lot easier and score you instant points. [Making the subject line "photo shoot" or "hi freya" or "job offer" or something else ambiguous will have precisely the opposite effect.]
3. Paid inquiries only. Whether this is a hobby or a full-time job for you has no bearing on the fact that this is my livelihood and I pay [literally: overhead and travel costs, unbillable hours; abstractly: opportunity costs, lack of upward mobility or benefits] in order to do it because I love it [i.e., arguments about "art for art's sake" will fall on deaf ears...even a model's gotta eat].
4. As a freelancer, my reputation is part of my job. Want to check references before contacting me? Scroll through my TAGs or my list. If that's not enough, feel free to ask for additional references with your inquiry. 8]
Travel for 2016 [more specific location/date information to be revealed as necessary; inquire directly for booking info]
Auckland, New Zealand
Possibilities for 2016 [TBD, should know more by late Feb]:
A. Home base in NYC
B. Travel to South Africa
C. Travel around Europe
D. Home base in Australia
Rates and policies vary somewhat by country [striking a balance balance between exchange rates to USD and the local cost of living], but are fairly consistent overall.
FYI: In the US, I charge $125/hour with a two-hour minimum for standard one-on-one shoots.
Fun stuff [i.e., you don't have to read this, but it's here for those interested]:
-I rock climb, scuba dive, do yoga, am a general mover and shaker and incidental athlete. I can limbo like a boss. In Spring 2015, I rode my bicycle from Key West, FL to Bar Harbor, ME—and modeled in big cities along the way!
-I've worked as a Thai massage therapist at an upscale spa in Mammoth, a certified snowsports instructor, a research assistant at NASA Ames, a freelance writer and editor, a trail builder for the National Parks, a stable hand in Utah, driving heavy machinery in North Dakota, remodeling houses, and so on.
-I build large-scale projects and the like for Burning Man: in 2012 I was with the Pier and worked as a golf cart mechanic for DPW, in 2013 I built the pyrotechnics for the Control Tower [did all the plumbing myself], and in 2014 I spent six months building Embrace, a seven-story structural engineering nightmare shaped like two giant people. In 2015 I built and did pyrotechnics for the Mazu temple, an interactive temple [complete with fire-breathing dragons] funded by a Taiwanese artist collective.
-Modeling's been my primary anchor for six years, but my other recurrent pursuits include music and writing.
-I've got the travel bug and spend as much time living out in the woods, out of my car on the open road, or hidden in far-off corners of the world out of a backpack as I can get away with. More recently, I've backpacked through Southeast Asia, Yosemite, and parts of Northern California, and did my first Australian modeling tour from Brisbane to Hobart.
