If "my work speaks for my self", boy am I in trouble
) I have 5 years of experience in this industry... but the last 2 years have been anything but working on my portfolio/career etc. I would like to start over and make it something I can truly call art, pictures that truly express my ideas and convey the way I feel. I love art, photography, clothing, music, make-up, and pretty people so I know I can find my calling somewhere in this industry.. I just need a jump start and a push in the right direction, from a photographer with class and edge.
My photos on modelmayhem.com are not my portfolio shots--OBVIOUSLY. I wanted to get that out in the air, I figured it would be clear that these were not professional shots but I continue to get messages like "gosh your shots are fantastic, whose your photographer?" Come on guys, you're either not professional yourself or you're just trying to be nice, it's not necessary. I haven't had a professional photographer take my photos in years. You know you have come into contact with a photographer who knows what they're doing when they say.. "those suck, let's get to work."
That is sort of what I'm looking for, an honest photographer with an artistic eye.
SHOTS I'D LIKE TO TAKE
anything artistic! (I LOVE FUNKY/EDGY minds!)
**Record collection shoot.
**Forest, Jungle, Animal Instinct shoot.
**Sid & Nancy shoot.
**high heels and trench coat shoot.
**Tall grass, River bank shoot.
**Graffiti-ed Allies, Urban shoot.
**Candy Scene (skittles on the floor etc.)
anything for the most part, as long as it's classy--and unique.
I DO NOT DO FULL NUDES, implied nudes are PUSHING it, but for the right photographer we'll talk.
I need some creative, smart, and charismatic photographers to meet with me and take some rockin' pictures that can help push me in the right direction. Please don't be an axe murderer, or a creepy stalker... that always helps.
I'd also love to meet with some awesome make up artists that can help with tips or possibly help before some shoots for little pay or even better--just for some portfolio shots.
Meeting with other models would be cool too to share ideas and swap stories!
I look forward to talking/shooting to you
