I will do select TFwhatever, and will happily! work for clothes, jewelry, anything awesome as long as I feel you can add something extra special to my portfolio, but my normal charge rates are as follows...
$75/hour for anything with clothes.
$100/hour for anything without clothes.
And unless you are an amazing photographer I've been wanting to work with since I started modeling, I will not do nudes for free.
If you've got skills with a lens, I'm thrilled to work with you.
However, unless I have worked with the photographer before and we have developed a trust, I will NOT go to a photoshoot by myself.
Also, I do all the editing on my own photos (with a few exceptions) because I know how I want my pictures to look.
I have close to 60...or over 60, I lost count...something tattoos including sleeves in progress on both arms and across my upper and lower back, a large chest piece that's still in the works, as well as my knuckles and 2 other very visible hand tattoos.
So if you're looking for someone "normal" looking, I'm not it, nor do I want to be.
At the moment, my hair is shaggy and growing out on the left side ( I had it shaved for a while) and down to my boob on the other.
I have lots of clip in colored extensions I use regularly that also come in handy during shoots.
My ears are at a 00 gauge (that's as big as I plan on going with that). No other piercings, I took them all out.
I also have scarification/cutting scars on my left arm and left leg, as well as healed white scars all over both arms and ankles (these can be easily photoshopped out.).
If you have a problem with body modifications, I have a problem with you.

I'm a very experienced nude model.
I love nude modeling, and I'm completely happy being naked in front of a lens.
But if the situation is the least bit uncomfortable, I will stop the shoot and leave.
As the first photo on this page alludes to, I love taking controversial photos. Photos that are disturbing, over the line and thought provoking. Those are my favorite.
I love making ugly things beautiful.
I have gallons of fake blood and I'm also able to make it REALLY easily and make it real looking.
I can make bruises and cuts with makeup and lots of other things. I've been doing it for years.
I'm also, obviously, up for real cutting as I've done in a few shoots before. I like scars.
I've also done play piercing shoots before but honestly, not a big fan of that because I don't like being pierced, I'd rather be cut.
In that same vein..kind of...I have severe anemia, so I always have bruises on me.
Usually my legs because I'm pretty damn clumsy;)
I also love anything pertaining to androgyny.
I WILL NOT shoot anything in or on fur. Fur is disgusting.
I have a VAST collection of clothes, costumes, vintage hats, shoes, and I can do styles (hair and make-up) from the 1700's to futuristic looks.
As for what else I do outside the modeling realm , I've been singing opera for almost 19 years, and I've been a rock singer for 15.
On the scholastic side of things, to quell the popular conception models are flighty airheads, I've been reading and writing at a college level since I was 8, thus spawning my interest in English and journalism.
I majored in English and minored in Media/Music journalism for the 2 years I spent in "real" college.
I hate school though, (to this day, I have nightmares about still being in high school) so I never finished.
I also went to FIDM for Fashion Design in LA for a few semesters.
I HATED it due to the fact they're really not interested in personal style AT ALL there, and got into modeling instead.
I'm looking into becoming an English as a Second Language teacher in Tokyo, as I'm already teaching many of my Japanese friends English.
I've been a freelance make-up artist for myself and others for...I don't know how long.
I do all my own hair and make-up unless an artist is required for the specified assignment and even then, I'm not fond of others doing my make-up.
I do like people doing my hair, though, because I don't know what to do with it half the time.
Overall, I'm just a tall, friendly goofball with exhibitionist tendencies and good work ethic:)
