I model as I love being in front of the camera. I am not someone who simply does it because they feel that they can, or with the intent of someday walking the runway for Dior. I do it because I genuinely find it enjoyable! In addition to this I have a great deal of respect for photographers on this site, as I myself am a professional Graphic Designer and Photographer. For this reason I understand punctuality, commitment, and often times what a photographer is looking for when they hire a model.
I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, and I live in the Portland, Oregon area to this day. I am looking for serious clients that understand the importance in hiring an amazing designer and photographer. A skilled professional can capture that singular moment that is impossible to replicate, whether it is from a wedding, a pregnancy, birthday, or other meaningful time in one's life. A photograph can also help market a business in a way that competitors have yet to comprehend. Family, friends, consumers, clients; these are all visual groups, and sight is a bodily sense that many of us depend upon the most. Photography and Graphic Design when handled by a skilled professional create one of the most meaningful investments that one can make in their lifetime. Why would anyone risk such special moments simply for a cheaper rate to a photographer whose quality and skill is less than professional?
