Hey there. I ..am Ashley Riot! I'm an artist of all sorts, here to make connections and get some great photos.
Medium-Long hair (reaching mostly to the small of my back) & Black.
- No piercings
- No tattoos
I've gained a lot of studio experience in the past few years (as a model, instructor, and tutor) and can bring a lot of attitude to a shoot. I typically make my own outfits for shoots as another creative outlet and always try to make each session unique. A significant portion of my modeling work is dedicated to media events and cosplay, which is something I'll elaborate on later.
I'll work with photographers of all skill levels, and I'm open to TFP if your concepts spark my interest, but I am mainly accepting paid work. However, I'm very interested in bartering for wardrobe and travel! I'm willing to accept any of the items listed here as compensation:
I'm also open to shooting mature subjects, fineart nudes, and a degree of the risque, but I would require payment in the form of cash upfront or an item from my list we both agree on ahead of time. Also, if we work together, I promise to add a full credit to my page linking to your MM port and website if you have one.
I'm very into costuming and cosplay and love trying to capture what fiction has to offer. I'm constantly making new outfits, original and inspired by, and am always looking for people and places to aid in getting some amazing photos.
This is where I'll be setting some of my current rotation.
Don't be afraid to ask what I'll be making next!
I have a long history with photoshop. My main trade is as a digital illustrator, and I am a Photoshop instructor at the Chicago Photography Center. I'm also a private Photoshop tutor for some struggling photographers. That said, I do most of my own photo editing. When possible, I'd really appreciate access to original files or the chance to offer input on editing a session. I love collaborating!
If you'd like to shoot, just send me a message! I'm really laid back and am looking to make some great art.
Lastly, this is where I'll be popping up in the near future!
