Eris ValeModel Female Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, US
Mayhem # 558785
Philadelphian Burlesque Extraordinaire, chaotic painter, old-book-smeller, wandering rapscallion cleverly disguised as an aristocrat and aspiring circus performer (specifically in the aerial arts although I also have a penchant love for fire eating/fire fans). I like modeling because I feel it allows me to become more aware of the visual aspect of my body and body mechanics, being able to see myself doing it and honing down an image until I get it just right. I tend to like nude photography for this reason.
I HAVE COME BACK FROM A MODELING HIATUS. Modeling was not relevant to my life for a few years and I didnt have space for it. For this reason I have posted some event shots/unprofesh photos just to update you all on how I look NOW. It's become clear to me that it would benefit me to know a few good photogs again and come up with some really great shoots.
Fetish shoots: I am a Sadist. I will portray images that deviate from my own sexual preferences with other models whom I know personally, particularly if those images are energetic, sensual, and well composed. Other than that, unless I am making a professional living off of fetish shoots alone (unlikely), or otherwise am being compensated well, do not ask me for one-on-one "get on your knees and be a good model" time, please. I don't like getting on-site and having the entire subject involve me getting "handled".
I make my own synthetic dreadlocks, which I install into my hair from time to time. If this matters to your shoot, ask if I have a set in.
I work much, MUCH better when I feel like I'm hanging out casually, playing with images and props and space, rather than the feeling of walking into a studio and being expected to just crank out a few quintessential images. I dont think it's unprofessional to have a beer or whiskey and chit-chat before a shoot or during breaks. However, if I think I'm onto something with a planned or unplanned pose, I WILL look at the image and try again until it's perfect. If you know what you want, please...be specific with me, and I can fulfill the requirements. I like playing, but if you have a goal in mind I'd love to be the one to help you achieve it.
