About Me

Professional internationally published mostly retired figure model. I began as an art model a million years ago so know how to hold a pose for the 4x5 film guys and artists alike.  I'm a trained dancer and live on my toes.  Dancing, jumping, moving is what keeps me happy. 

Ive been fortunate in my travels across the globe to work with fantastic talents and also regularly work with hobbyists.  Each are equally satisfying and often just as creative.  I take pride in each shoot that i'm involved in, making it a fun and engaging shoot for everyone involved.  Modeling has become inherent for me, posing subconsciously and moving to the music in my head.  I'm always game for trying new things, challenging myself and creating images that evoke emotion, thought and beauty. 

PLEASE NOTE: $150 cancellation fee applies to ANY booking that is cancelled. Higher fee dependant on the duration of the booking.  Thanks!

I'm also a photographer, working professionally in the commercial realm and shooting frequently in the fine art world.  My photography and art has taken me away from modeling but i'm still here so if you feel so inspired, lets make some art!

"Candace was literally my first figure model shoot ever. And I shot with her again 4 years later. Aside from deftly working with my "newbieness" the first time, she was just as delightful a creative partner the 2nd time around. As talented and intelligent as she is personable, ...she's on my "very short list" of top models with whom I've worked!" more less

"Candace was lovely to work with: personable, punctual, and very knowledgeable about poses. In a nutshell: she was highly professional in the best ways. She also brought her background as a photographer to our shoot, and as a result was extremely patient with this photographer he tinkered endlessly with lighting. (She also great advice *about* that lighting.) If you get a chance to work with her - or if she asks to work with you - take the opportunity." more less
