** January 2014** heading back to LA soon! Contact me if you'd like to collaborate.
**new portfolio updates coming soon! Just wait til you see what I've been working on!**
I'm bubbly, easy to work with, open to negotiations and incredibly friendly, but I like to be straight and to the point. Please don't confuse my upfront discussions about rates/conditions/releases etc with being rude. I just want us to be on the same page so nobody goes home with bad feelings afterwards. It's worked fine for me since the beginning.
I LOVE this industry!!! Creativity is the key.
Currently located in Canberra, Australia, I spend time between here and the US each year. I ALWAYS update my MM to show my CURRENT location. (even if MM is a little slow in getting my mail to me. if you find you have trouble, or haven't heard back in what you expect a reasonable time, please, message again, or tag my wall so I know you're there. Mail on this site can be terrible sometimes).
I'm aiming for more paid shoots now that I've completed my masters, but still love TFP when I have time, so don't be afraid to ask!!
I love doing all styles of shoots, but high fashion and glamour are my favorites. I'm not always okay with Nude shoots, but i'm willing to discuss your idea, and whether it agrees with my ethics. I have two tattoos, tiny initials on my finger ( easily camoflagued) and two small on my wrists ( also easily hidden if required) and only my ears are pierced (two holes each ear). I'm happy to remove the second pair or both if you'd prefer. I run between a size 10 AU and 12 AU (6-8 US). I've previously worked as a Fitting Model for a well known Australian Fashion House, and in 2011, 2012 and this year (2013) worked for an International Designer as a house model.
I guess what i really want from this site is to network, not only for work, but for Togs and TFP, and to expand my portfolio with their help. I'd also like to work with some Photog students TFP if they're willing, or non-professional togs, because i've found that they often have the freshest ideas and very new and different methods of editing, which can lend themselves to interesting shots.
Previously I've worked in print media, online advertising, glamour comps and promotional work (both in print and physically at events).
I'm usually tanned, but can delay the top up if someone was wanting to shoot a clear pale complexioned style shoot. I also recently changed back to brunette from blonde, which I'm loving, and opens me up to some great new photo ops.
I've also trained (and worked for some years) as MUA and hair, and love that!! I'm more than happy to do it for a shoot if someone else was shooting a lot of us on the day, it makes TFP even better for me!! (and you, of course, lol)
I'm active (run, boxing, Ballet, Pilates, cheerleading, figure skating and mixed sports), vibrant and can pull out that extra burst of energy and enthusiasm even in minus temps, freezing cold water or scorching hot days. I'm easy to work with and have never ever been asked to leave a job!
I have a fairly extensive wardrobe when it comes to shoes , lingerie and dresses as well as accessories, and have a very versatile look.
