Fully retired from modeling as Hollis Ireland. I will be pursuing other non-modeling-related artistic endeavors under another alias. Find me if you can.
"My advice is that if you are lucky enough to be trusted to photograph a lot of incredibly beautiful naked woman for your art, and you find yourself attracted to one of them keep it to yourself. If you have a camera in your hands you are working. Do your job and you’ll never have anything to worry about." -Corwin Prescott
UPDATES & NEWS
-THIS is why I’m retired. Do you know what it’s like to try to build yourself a life as a self-sufficient adult when your work environment is based on control and degradation? Do you know what it’s like to try to maintain a friendly, professional demeanor when your client/boss skates the most disgusting of lines? Do you know what it’s like to enter your career excited to be able to maintain your true personality and artistic self, only to have your soul utterly sucked out by the gigs you have to take in order to make a living?
Anyone who dares say we, as women comfortable in the nude and passionate towards artistic expression, asked for it, can answer to me. Anyone who dares say “men will be men” and “shouldn’t you have known?” proves him or herself to know absolutely nothing.
THIS is why a niche of what should be compassionate artists is full of perverts, users, and manipulators. THIS is why I’m finished shooting nudes, forever.
I leave this pseudo industry feeling utterly disgusted, regretful, and happy to put the past behind me. Some of you became wonderful friends. Most of you made me lose my faith in female self-expression, nude "art," and the male gender.
The Basics (Everything You Need To Know Before Booking Me)
Genres I’ll Shoot: Glamour, Artistic, Fashion, Alternative, Horror, Fetish, and whatever else you can dream up. You name it, I'll be happy to shoot it! (If you're paying me, I'll do just about any concept you like. However, my taste in photography is a bit off-color. The more bizarre, strange, weird, creepy, horrifying, offensive, and not-of-this-world, the better. Think Joel-Peter Witkin meets Stephen King meets Chuck Palahniuk meets Gunther Van Hagens (with a little bit of H.R. Giger).)
Trade Shoots: I will consider trade for publication/tear sheets/dark or macabre shoot concepts with outstanding photographers ONLY when professionally styled hair and make-up are provided.
Transportation: I have my own car (that doesn't break down) and can easily come right to your shoot location. When traveling by air, I will almost always rent a car. I despise public transportation.
Lodging: I generally do not consider staying with photographers or “TF lodging” offers unless we have previously worked together. I also rarely accept “TF hotel room” offers. I prefer to have complete control over where I stay, and that will usually be with a friend/known photog/model or at a hotel.
Rate: I never post my rate publicly, but based on those who do, I’d say I’m cheaper than you probably think. PM me for details. I can occasionally negotiate depending on content type and travel involved.
Limits: I am no longer shooting nudes at this time. I am still comfortable with shooting in latex, lingerie, and bra and panty sets.
References: Feel free to message any of the photographers who are tagged in my portfolio photos, or message me for specifics.
Pre-Shoot Phone Conversations I absolutely MUST have the following information IN PRINT before I oblige a pre-shoot phone call: Shoot length (ballpark, at least); rate agreed upon; explicit detail of type of poses/content required; location; arrival time. I will NOT speak to anyone on the phone until I have these basic details IN PRINT in my MM inbox or via email. Keeping printed records of shoot conversations and details is a smart thing to do.
Escorts: I haven’t used an escort in 5 years and hey, I’m still alive! I may be dropped off at any given shoot by a male travel partner, but he will not be attending the shoot.
Hair/Make-up: My skills are very limited, but very passable depending on what you need. I cannot do a damn thing with my hair. I bring a few decorative clips to spice up my naturally-straight hair if needed. Unless you hire a stylist or ask me to bring a clip/pony tail, expect it straight and down at my shoulders. My make-up skills are decent for basic looks, such as smoky eyes or pin-up, but I cannot attempt any high-fashion, professional-level looks. I just don't have the skills. I can do variations on the basics, but that is where my talent ends.
My Modeling Philosophy/Attitude: I enjoy working with photographers of all skill levels. My job is to help you create your art, realize your concepts, and leave you with nothing less than the physical version of what was once only in your mind. My opinion of your concept, professional status, or photography skills has absolutely no bearing on my decision to work with you or the overall effort I will put into your shoot. When you make the commitment to pay me for my time, I make a commitment to you, your valuable time, and your concept. I put 110% effort into every shoot I book. When working with me, you NEVER need to worry about divas, flakes, bitching, or excuses! I'm a genuine person with a professional attitude and a down-to-earth personality. I dare you not to enjoy having me in front of your camera and in your conversations.
Did I forget something? PM me if you’re interested in booking or just have a question for me! I’m friendly and will respond to ALL messages (but will do so obnoxiously if you’re an asshole ).
