the low down:
if i have not inspired you as an artist, then i am not doing my job.
aesthetically addicted to the strange and the beautiful.
artist by nature, aspiring scientist by trade,
proportions and angles utterly fascinate me.
there is so much beauty in this world.
i feel blessed to help create just a tiny bit of it.
chances are i will contact you, but i sometimes consider:
epic concepts, generally with full teams
designer trade for product
barter of wardrobe, photo equipment, camping gear, art
generally though, no thank you!
i have reasonable rates that incorporate an upfront booking fee.
many more details, references, etc. available upon inquiry.
flexible: i'd rather find a happy middle ground than butt heads over $$$.
although i have an "alternative" look i am very capable of molding myself to accommodate most concepts. my tattoos (chest, back of neck and head, tops of feet) piercings (just the septum and earlobes now) and scars (hips, some random scars on torso/legs) are all concealable or removable for the right project.
ON MAKE UP:
unless you are incredibly talented or know someone who is, i prefer doing my own. i can emulate any look you give me examples of. if you plan on using a MUA please be sure inform me ahead of time: i have sensitive skin and am a tad OCD about my face in general... thanks in advance for understanding.
ON SUPER COLD WEATHER/SUPER PUBLIC NUDITY/OTHER MADNESS:
please keep my well being in mind. i will do whatever i necessary to get the shot, to a certain degree. i will not excessively risk being arrested, getting ill, or injuring myself. discuss these things well in advance and we can figure it out appropriately.
a few odd bits and pieces
- i am pesca-beegan (no dairy, no red meat or poultry. fish, eggs and honey are rad!) and VERY SERIOUSLY allergic to gluten. (i will still wear animal products, i just don't want them in my stomach!) if you find me baked goods i can actually eat, you will have the most excited model you've ever seen on your hands.
- YES, i really am 5'10''
- i am a cancer survivor, most of the time i don't mind talking about this, but i appreciate people who let me divulge to my comfort and not their curiosity.
- i am a tomboy, clutz, awkward, and often show up without makeup on. given 30 minutes though, i clean up quite nice. and the intentional grace comes from years of dance and athletic experience.
- laughter is my life force. positive, productive dialogue is the only kind i will actively engage in. i don't smile in pictures much though, cause under all of the blue steel i look a bit goofy.
i look forward to collaborating with you!
