UPDATE: I'm BLONDE now. And I recently aquired blue contacts haha. So if you're confused by my profile saying blonde and blue when most of my work is brown and brown now you know.
I have a sample in my portfolio.
I'll break this into sections so you can skip around to what you really need to know, though I think its best if you read it all personally.
ABOUT ME: I am 22 years old, I don't smoke, I drink very rarely. I am bubbly, ridiculous and also incredibly shy. Maybe a little neurotic, Very analytical, smart, and open minded. I don't feel the need to conform, and I don't feel the need to be way out in left field either. Either way results in a total loss of self. I am Olivia, I am unique, fun and occasionally high strung. I love art, I model to create art. I find it fulfilling, a great photo shoot is like an orgasm. It is rejuvenating to be in front of the camera, collaborating my inspirations and thoughts with another human being to create something completely different than either of us ever envisioned possible. Modeling to me is not a career path or a hobby it is a passion. I love doing it, that is the sole reason why I model. I love meeting new people, exploring new concepts and bringing thought into a physical reality displayed for the whole world to see.
I am a serial shooter, I seldom shoot with a photographer only once. If we vibe well, if we both love the images we have created then why only shoot once? Why not build a business relationship and a friendship out of it?
I shoot well with others, I'm easy going, hard to seriously offend.
I like hugs.
I love reading my hobbies include studying the holocaust, reading, painting, drawing, writing, photography and I collect cats.
I would love to do shoots involving religious and political satire. and muppets.
I have a sexy elmo costume, whos calling dibs?
CONTACT: I have two jobs and a relationship to balance, this does not make modeling any less important to me. I love modeling, that is the sole reason that I model.
However, If you would like to contact me more directly than on MM Feel free to email me at Oblivia89@aol.com with a relevant subject line so I don't think its spam. All emails are sent to my blackberry, If I don't reply right away it means I am sleeping or working and will get back to you ASAP.
COMPENSATION: as previously stated I love modeling. I do NOT have an issue with mutual portfolio work unless
~IF You are going to make a profit off of me, I don't expect 8bajillion dollars, but a cut is reasonable.
~Any sort of nude work requires at least 100/hr.
However, I try to avoid nude work unless it is for fine art, I reserve the right to discriminate on what jobs I take, and I have not done a nude shoot in almost 2 years if that gives you any idea of how discriminating I am.
~If I have to drive to buffalo or farther I will require pay, I am not made of gasoline or red bulls for a road trip. I believe this is reasonable.
~If I have to take off work on a Friday or Saturday night for a shoot I will require pay as that is my big money night. I am not in the financial place to lose serious cash over a photoshoot. Ain't life a bitch?
Now that we have that out of the way, I don't mind TFCD or TFP, I enjoy it because it takes off some of the pressure. If you are a new photographer, in need of building your portfolio please let me know, I will gladly help you. I'm not here to be the next Kate Moss, I'm here to leave my mark however small or great on the world. I'm here to make art, not a name for myself.
EXPERIANCE: I've been modeling for almost 5 years, I have thousands of images in my arsenal I believe I am allowed to say that I am very experienced. I am not yet a veteran but there is nothing wrong with that. I have an extensive wardrobe, and I usually do my own makeup so if you can not book or can not afford a MUA you really don't have to worry. I generally straiten my hair, if you need something different and do not have a hair stylist let me know when we are booking the shoot as one of my best friends is an experienced and licensed cosmetologist and hair dresser. And shes incredible.
anyways, a majority of my experience is in nude, fetish, pin-up, glamor, and alt. I would love to expand my experience. If I haven't done it yet chances are I would like to. I would like to work outside of the box. wouldn't you?
PUNCTUALITY: I am always on time, if I am going to be late you will receive a phone call prior to the shoot, not five minutes before its supposed to happen.
Usually if I am late its not by much, a few minutes, half hour top. Hey, at least I am honest. If you have a very very strict booking schedule you shouldn't worry. The only thing that usually keeps me is traffic.
BOOKING: I prefer to set up shoots at least a week in advance to ensure that I can make it. My best day for easy booking is on Monday nights, One Monday a month goes faithfully to Steve Newey. That means there are three other Mondays for you
Thursday's are also good, Sundays work too but are iffy. My night work schedule is faithfully Tuesday, wednesday, friday and saturday after 9. SO trying to get me on one of those nights is rough. and would thus require pay. My day job, my hours usually change, hence why I need time in advance so I can notify my manager.
Don't let this discourage you from trying to set up a shoot however, adjustments are always possible. I am a very flexible young lady. I promise.
FIELDS OF INTEREST: I have already listed my fields of experience, If you can offer me the following sorts of shoots I will Metaphorically (not literally mind you) suck your dick. AKA I will bend over backwards to show up and work with you.
*Seriously fine art.
*Anything with midgets.
*Get me in a fucking fishtank.
*Latex body suits.
*Kinky medical craziness.
Other than that, if I haven't done it I want to do it. Except porn, I have a no porn policy. I mean, doing porn could be really fun, but I promised my mother I would never do porn. And since when I was little I promised so many things to get her to buy kittens like eating my broccoli (I never followed through, but I did fall in love with broccoli in recent years) I figure I owe her this much. I mean I accidentally became the black sheep I can't completely taint her image of me now can I?
NUDITY: I'll give it to you strait, I'm a psychology, and I intend to be a psychologist in the future. Do I want that to come back to haunt me one day? to have all of my future co-workers see my knockers? I think I wouldn't, but who knows who I will be when I get to that point? But I do know this, when getting hired if they have to choose between me and a woman of equal qualifications, and they can google me and pull up endless pictures of my lady bits its pretty obvious who they would choose. Furthermore, My little brother is a model, my little brother is on model mayhem, and I don't know who I will be in 10 years, but I do know that I will never want him to see me naked. I can do tasteful implied nudes, but I will not do spread eagle with ten dildos in me.
MY BODY: I think judging by my portfolio it is pretty obvious that I am not petite. I am 5'8, with a larger bone structure. I am not fat, I do not personally consider myself to be chubby but that could just be my pride speaking. I am not skinny, I am however for personal fulfillment getting into better shape, so yes I suppose that makes me industry plus size. whatever. I hate saying "plus size". It makes it sound ugly. Anywayss, I'm not a perfectly sculpted bronze god, actually I'm kind of pasty. So, I'm pretty tall, I have multiple pairs of 8 inch heels which make me even taller. I have long legs, they are fairly muscular (Years of dancing and karate) except for my inner thighs which happen to be the bane of my existence. My tits are huge, (Between a double and tripple D at the moment) I have broad shoulders, and a reasonably sized ass. If you have no problem with working with a fun, (very) pretty, bubbly and professional experienced model that looks nothing like Twiggy Lawson I'm your girl.
If you prefer to work with the Twiggy type, I am not your girl. If you feel compelled to tell me that I need to lose 8bajillion pounds I will feel compelled to tell you to go fuck yourself with a brick. I know what I look like, and it could be a lot worse. I could require an aerial view to fit me in the frame, so think about that before you judge. I'm proportional, so relax.
WARDROBE: I have corsets, chaps, club wear, and stripper clothes. I have many many different brightly colored pairs of converse, I have four different pairs of 8 inch platform stiletto heels. I have vinyl 8 inch platform knee high boots, and a 6 inch pair just like them. I have other stripper stiletto heel's ranging from 6 to 7 inches. I feel that heels under 6 inches really just are not sexy. I can bring wardrobe if needed, and I am generally expanding my wardrobe on a regular basis. I do this because I dance, and well obviously not everyone can provide wardrobe, and as I am not the standard "industry size" it just seems easier to have a back up arsenal don't ya think? Generally my stuff tends to be more goth or burlesque in nature, personal taste. However that does not mean that I refuse to do anything that isn't "LIEK SO TOTALLY GOTH CUZ I SHIT BATS" that's just silly. For a shoot I can be anything I need to be. I don't mind being dressed like barbie (I love barbie)
So please don't think that I will only do stuff that is darktastic, because I don't like to limit my potential.
PIERCINGS/TATTOO'S/JEWELRY: I have four piercings, my ears, my vagoogly, nipples and septum. although I can't remove my vagoogly piercing I can remove my septum for a shoot, and due to my nudity policy I don't anticipate my nipples to be an issue. As of this moment I have no tattoo's, its not that I don't want tattoo's its that tattoo's would potentially limit my shooting opportunities, and I don't want to get something I will regret. as far as Jewelry goes I wear a baphomet necklace and diamond ring, if you do not want these in the picture then remind me before the shoot. Otherwise I will forget to take them off :p, also I have a bad habit of having a hairband on my wrist, which is incredibly annoying to try and photoshop out of pictures. so if we're shooting, and you see the hair band say "Olivia, hair thing" please!!!
ESCORTS: Non-negotiable with every single shoot I bring an escort. When I am in a relationship my escort is usually my "big scaryyy boyfriend", when I am single I bring one of my licensed security guard friends. My escorts do NOT interrupt the shoot, EVER.
I have never had an issue with any of my various escorts over the years interrupting, if they ever did they would be asked to wait outside and that would be the last time I would bring that particular person. My escort until further notice is Justin, he is very shy, and helps with the lighting when needed. If you do not feel confident in this message me and I can give you the profiles of photographers that have worked with me with him there and they can assure you that he is a nice guy, he won't try and intimidate you, have a temper tantrum, get in the way or punch you in the face. If he ever behaved inappropriately I would switch out escorts.
Now that you know who my escort is, I will let you know why having an escort is non-negotiable.
In 2007 I went to my first "Photoshoot" where I ended up tied up, I felt something was off when I was told not to bring an escort. Even though I was a novice I knew something was wrong when he pulled out a 5.0 megapixel walmart brand digital camera. when the battery died I got nervous. When he pulled out disposable camera's I quickly realized that I should have listened to my gut feeling, and when he pulled out his cellphone I just felt like an asshole.
When he took off his pants I almost shit a brick.
When I convinced him I had to pee and needed to be untied I felt like a genius.
So, until you have a geriatric tattoo artist try and masturbate and spew his ejaculate from his wrinkly old man balls all over you I really don't want to hear about it. true story. non-fiction.
OTHER THINGS THAT DON'T FIT INTO A CATEGORY:
*I am an experienced pole dancer so if you want to shoot pole tricks let me know, I'm totally up for it.
*Yes, my boobs are real.
*Please don't touch me without asking, and by touch I don't mean shoulder. I have a elbow to the jaw reflex when people touch my naughty bits.
*don't be afraid to ask me anything.
*I'm not afraid to get dirty, rolling around in the mud, jello, snow, leaves, paint etc. don't phase me.
*Bugs do phase me.
*I have a bad reaction to foul smells, I.E. projectile vomiting, if you suffer from explosive flatulence please warn me ahead of time.
*I love shooting out doors.
Ok, so lets go make art
