About Me

#LIFEATTACK! Just wrapped up moving and am getting settled in my new apartment near Prospect Park! Oodles of natural light, and my to-do list is dwindling to a somewhat normal sized monster, meaning! I'm aching to art the fuck out. Let's do this.
Meanwhile: I'm a bit behind setting tour dates, but am cleaning through my backlog here, emails, facebooks, etc.... Pleeeeaaassseeeeeee hang tight!

TL;DR:
[br]

I'm one of the "first generation" of professional art models, with a background in dance and theatre I have a varied experience in the performance arts, and recently relocated back to NYC after 3 successful years operating photo studios in the DC/Baltimore area.

Mostly available in NYC, and for projects in the Tri-State area, with frequent trips to Boston and DC.
EU- Portugal, St Louis/Chicago, and West Coast/Rockies travels in 2016


I like the fact that we can all be friends, but remember: You RESPECT your friends...so please keep that in mind when booking a shoot with me...

TO REACH ME, THE BEST METHOD IS: carlyadastra@gmail.com


***************************************
RTFM:



Hi. (Did you make it this far!? TeeHee) I like art. smile In fact- I like art so much I attempt to make a living doing it.
    I dance in front of the lens and steal moments from behind it.

RETIREMENT=NONSENSE


As of 2016 I will continue to travel/tour & model on a part-time basis as allowed by the demands in my career as a Commercial Photographer, Art Director, and Educator.

I love to be outdoors, I love conveying emotion, telling a story, becoming a character, playing with props, using wardrobe, am the fabric-in-the-wind-on-a-sand-dune champ. I love direct--hard-lighting in studios, sets I can play in, a location that inspires me to step back in time.
As bad-ass as I sound now- just remember I'm a sweet little kitton who's afraid of heights and stairs, is mid-diagnosis of Fibromyalgia, and has gotten Lyme's Disease AND glass-to-the-bone-in-my-foot-with-shoes-on.
Oh. And that one time we all almost fell off a mountain....
>.<


NYC:
Note that I'm also available as Art Director/Production Manager, have a couple locations to use, and/but plenty happy to pose in front of your camera as well as work behind it! smile


LOCATIONS:
I do have a couple of different locations to shoot at, for a small fee smile There's a garden-level apartment with a little natural light- very ambience-ish. Also a location with a large black backdrop/floor, and a couple windows for natural light, and also great building characteristics, including a fire-escape overlooking the skyline. Both are in Brooklyn!


Other consulting capabilities: Art Direction, Set Design/Building, Workshop teaching/organizing, Studio Organization to Reduce Workflow Anxiety, and more! Just shoot me a message!


Trade? Not going to happen. Sorry- I seek trade work now as a Photographer, so unless you can get my time with my camera with another model (which is always a fun trio!) it's not feasible in anyway. Hard Stop.

OTHER FUNFACTS ABOUT CARLY!!
- THANKS TO SQUARE AND PAYPAL, I DO ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS

- My Hair is currently shaggy past shoulder length and auburn.

-I am actually 36. I list a younger age to appear in searches, as most photographers cap their searches at 30. hmm I "look" a range of 25-35.

-I like to inspire people; it is what keeps me going when I'm freaking out about paying my bills and the like... [/b]

-This is 'non-model me'.... for those who wonder....no makeup, a little under the weather, and that poncho that goes with me everywhere.....'bout covers it...
