Hi, I'm Jessie, and I do not want to win America's Next Top Model.
I JUST moved to SoCal for good! Still feels like a vacation so far...
Feel free to contact me for bookings...only interested in tears or tests with agency/published photographers as I'm hugely busy at the moment.
You may remember me as
Jessie Armstrong (I changed my mm name due to strange google related incidences .)
I am a nerd in disguise and an internationally published model. I am known to be a chameleon and can pull off just about any hair color, style or look. In addition, I have acting experience (my first love) on stage and film, I play the guitar, compose my own music and sing with a range of multiple octaves. I would LOVE to take on any singing or acting job in addition to modeling. My acting background has given me excellent experience in emoting for images. As I am also a structural engineer, my schedule is a little hectic, and I don't have much time for tfp any more . However I would be willing make exceptions for editorial publication quality photographers. I have in the past assisted a lot of budding photographers and love to help people realize their dreams, but with my other career I won't have time to do so unpaid unless it is of great benefit to my portfolio. Sorry . I am highly reliable and if I promise a shoot I will work around a lot to accommodate you. If I tell you I will be there, I will!
One other exception besides above...
As an engineer I have an analytical side which has prompted me to learn the technical aspects of the industry. I have thoroughly studied and developed an understanding of lighting, composition, design and editing (no destructive excessive blurring here). I have been getting more involved with the other sides of the creative process in my shoots lately, and will consider TF if I may have more creative input in the process with lighting and editing. If you like it, you can take all the credit (besides the model part ;P). I'd still expect the photographer to have mastered all the fundamentals.
Recent no make up "polaroids"...still rocking the pale red. Maybe I'll go back to the tan brunette Californian if it proves of market benefit . Willing to change hair color if for $$ Shoot.
