Please send me a message or comment/tag me before sending a friend request. It is simply common courtesy. I am not here for a high friends count. I am here for networking and work.
I work in film & television as an ACTRA Apprentice member, doing background and special skills acting. When it comes to modeling, I like to constantly expand my portfolio by working with artists of many kinds. However, I like to mainly work in the alternative, gothic and fetish departments, I do enjoy fashion, and beauty work as well.
If you are an established photographer with a great body of work and a professional demeanor requesting to shoot implied or artistic, please disregard this notation and I apologize for making you read this. Otherwise? I do not shoot them. So please do not message me asking me so strip down for you.
TF Shoots and Rates
Everyone must start somewhere. I do understand this idea and support helping new talent find their style or way. However, I have reached a point in my career that TF* will be on a select basis. Either I would die to work with you or I believe we can both benefit from our working together. If I do not feel I can gain from our working together, I cannot do it for TF*.
However, if you are really gung-ho about shooting with me you can PM me with your concept and to discuss rates. Keep in mind that I can sometimes be bought with pizza, wardrobe, accessories, make-up, or maybe even flowers. I am a girl, after all.
What I require if shooting TF* with you
*A signed agreement stating equal rights and ownership of work to all parties involved(excluding sale of images and use that would damage a contributing party's reputation)
*Unwatermarked images, preferably of my choosing from a contact sheet. (This does not apply to all photographers. I've just gotten too many images with large, gaudy watermarks which have made the images unusable, and I'd like to avoid such instances in the future)
*Credit or Tags wherever the images are used/posted (I think this is common courtesy whenever posting images someone else has aided with. TF* or Paid.)
Ownership of Work
It takes all persons involved to make an image the piece of work it is. Simply because one person holds the memory card that they are on, does not mean they are the sole owners. This is my firm belief on the situation.
Yes, there are MANY of you (mainly photographers) who will become irate at this idea, but the argument that you must get paid becomes moot since models should also get paid, as should stylists and make-up artists. When it comes to a creative collaboration, it makes little sense for everyone to pool their money together to pay each other for their services. So, instead, we trade our services as a form of currency in order to create a great image or set of images.
THERE ARE SITUATIONS WHERE THIS DOES NOT APPLY. I fully understand that many galleries and publications have their own set of rules for rights and use of images. If this is the guaranteed case, we can discuss the details privately prior to shooting.
Shoots I'd Love to Do
Examples of most of this can be found in my lists in "Great Make-Up Shots" and "Ideas I'd Like To Do"
Big, flowy dress in wind and water
Summery, washed-out, sun-behind-object kind of stuff
Hard, edgy, sexy, dark, cliche shots with bushel of balloons
Make my head your art piece
Couples shots (both straight and lesbian)
Overly tall/long dress fashion shoot (use box to stand on to elongate body)
