My name is Amber
but you're also welcome to call me Kozi or Kozinu, I don't really mind either way.
Basically, I'm here to work towards some actual prints so I can begin a real physical portfolio
. So I'm happy to help work with artists on projects, depending on what's involved. This means I'm mainly interested in TFP or TFCD
, obviously I am looking to get something to start a real portfolio but this doesn't mean I'm not willing to work for digital copies, too. I'm entirely thrilled with those as well, believe me!
So if you're local and you've got some sort of fun idea, project or theme you'd like to try, don't hesitate to ask! (And feel free to e-mail me, I use a blackberry so I'm pretty quick to respond. firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm especially looking for photographers who either like shooting plus size gals or have no issue whatever the size of the model
. I know some people work with a very specific type of model, so I figured I may as well mention it. I'm not super thin like a lot of girls on here, I'm sure. I'm plus size and pretty tall, too. So if you're into the idea of doing a shoot with a full figured woman, hit me up!
Mostly, I'm interested in fetish/goth type photos, as that's what most of my wardrobe consists of.. fishnet, leather, vinyl, things with straps, D-Rings, laces, etc. I'd also love to do a chainmaille
shoot if the chance ever arose. (Yes, that's randomly specific, but the idea just taunts me, chainmaille is so pricey! Thankfully my partner makes the stuff, but we're still in the process of funding a full outfit for me, it's in the works!) I'd also love to do some nature
shoots, by the lake-front, in a park, that type of thing. I'm especially interested in water
, pools, waterfalls
and springs, anything of the sort. I adore water. Really I'm open to just about anything anywhere, though I'd prefer not to do full nudity. (I'm fine with lingerie
and more risque outfits, though. Believe me, I've got enough of 'em! I go to Rocky Horror all the time.) I'd especially enjoy fantasy
shoots, too.. gorgeous dresses, short or long, faerie wings, unusually glittery or over-the-top make-up and that sort of thing. I'd love to try that out sometime, just wish I had the wardrobe for it! Of course, I'm up for normal fashion
shoots, too! Doesn't have to be fancy. I can do my own make-up, not too much experience with hair, sadly, but I would absolutely love to work with stylists, as well as wardrobe designers.
Like it says on the left, I'm not tiny. I'm about a size 16, which is a plus size. I've got chubb. Let's just say my boyfriend adores my ass, it's not lacking, but definitely not huge. (No, it won't double as a shelf, sorry!)
About half way down my back, red/black stripes on top, red in the middle and black underneath. Naturally straight with a slight wave. Open to any type of style. (Would need a stylist, I'm not too great with hair! Fail, I know!)
I'm about 25% Polish and 75% German. (All german on my mother's side and my dad is half german half polish.)
Three piercings in each ear, all lower. (16g each. Nothing big.) (Usually have a single spiral through all three, but can switch out for different shoots.) Also my tongue is pierced, too.
Minor scars, no tattoos or anything of that sort though. Also no real noticeable birth marks or anything.
Let me know what you want. (See my specific list of interests just below.) I only own fashion corsets but I'd love to shoot with someone who had a bit of a wardrobe to use, as well. Unfortunately, I don't have a whole lot of these type of costumes, if any, but if provided I'd be more than happy to wear them. Just contact me for more detailed size info, if needed! Also I'm alright with most animals, cats, dogs, sugar gliders, most snakes, etc. No issues at all! Body paint would be pretty fun too, I think. Blood is fine as well, fake anyway. Like a vampire type of theme, a 'murder' or that sort of thing. (Even the crime scene type of thing I'd be willing to consider, depending on the extent of the 'damages'.) That's fine with me.
Really odd fetish shoots, like furres for example. I'm sure you can think of plenty more. Also, no to full nudes for now, maybe if I find the right photographer/project. Same goes for anything involvolving porn, sex toys, etc.. Just a bit too risque for me, even. Oh, another big no no.. no spiders! I hate spiders with a passion! I'd also prefer not to do any type of zombie shoot either, not so much into the rotting flesh and what not.

Also see my List of Inspirations for future photo shoots
to get a better idea of some of the projects I might like to work on.
Anywhere from Madison to Chicago, as long as I have transportation and gas money. (Which generally isn't an issue.) I'm located in Milwaukee though, near 27th and Oklahoma.
There are some water fountains
downtown on Wisconsin Ave. near Betty Brinn, across the street. I'd love to shoot there. Also, the bridge to the art museum would be beautiful too, I think.
Posh hotels or nightclubs, especially anything gothic themed or somewhat historical.
- I do own Sugar Gliders. Not everyone knows what they are, but google it. If you'd like to do a shoot of just them for your portfolio or even me with them on me/holding them I'd be more than happy to help out. I know some people love to shoot animals. Check out my website for information and loads of photos. Kozi Gliders.com
I reserve the right to bring an escort.
Depending on the type of shoot, my partner is available to accompany me to help with knot tying/rope related things for some fetish/bondage shoots, or he's also skilled in making chainmaille, which usually requires someone with ample knowledge to attach it properly, or at least effectively. (Without having annoying clasps/hooks that can dig into or pinch the skin.) Otherwise I do have various female friends some of which are models, they would likely be happy to accompany me as well. None of my escorts will be involved with the shoot or be a distraction in any way. If I need help changing into something or with hair or make-up (assuming no assistance is provided) then they may help me out, but that's about it. This doesn't mean I'll bring someone by default, if I've worked with you before I may or may not need to depending on who's available and my comfort level working with you.
I'd also definitely prefer to meet before hand for coffee or tea or even lunch
, depending on the discussion. I think that's pretty standard and not a lot to ask. It's a good way to get to know each other, discuss exactly what you'd both like to get out of the shoot and to toss ideas back and forth. It's also a much safer way to do things. I'm sure a good deal of both models and photographers would agree on that. I'm not trying to be difficult, just safe.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my profile.
