Important: I am here merely for the reason of promoting my work with visual artist Art Ward, and to establish contacts with committed , creative and reliable individuals able to help me create wonderful images.Together we can create wonderful visuals if you have a passion for photography and visual art, as i do for modelling and art.
Manage to launch my new deviant art profile http://unique28.deviantart.com/ , i get on to it and it will contain along with promotion of my personal projects-work with Art Ward, a blog explaining and educating in nude genre.Vision, concept, feeling etc.Have a look ....
I do not want to transform model mayhem in a networking social site, therefor my friend request are limited to work requests, people interested in collecting any of our prints from my website,or offering contacts in achieving that goal.Thank you.
Take a look at the list call-More of my work to see some of the images i love but didnt fit in my profile.
My name is Elena, thanks for dropping by,
I originate from Romania, now based in the UK with 3 years modelling in Ireland, 2 in Italy and 3 in Romania. I have a background in ballet, an ability that allows me to offer much more to my work in terms of flexibility, posing, grace and artistic expression. I am very experienced and work in all styles, I describe myself as being very creative. As an artist, I like to go the extra mile to achieve perfection in a shoot, i deliver quality and professionalism.
I am passionate about my work and bring ideas to a shoot. I see it as a performance through mind, body and soul to create a perfect piece of art. My personality reflect my desire to be seen as an intelligent person and not a page three style model, if you are interested in this type of shoot - I am not your type of model! I create classical glamour instead that has a timeless look.
Declaration of artistic independence
I do not undertake, encourage, advice or accept to be associated with projects that present the female form, in a different form and perspective than the way that has been seen by classics in art. Therefore, I will never accept or be associated with projects that describe in the slightest way, bdsm, bondage, fetish or anything similar to it.
I also affirm that the nude genre and art nude has nothing to do with parts of the body or the whole naked issue. Its about the vision, concept, feeling inside and the beauty of spirit.
Any kind of visual form,also modelling, is about creating.
I am specialised in art nude, dance and figure dance modelling. I like to keep my work fresh, so I try any new direction and things that I have never tried before. I love to experiment with light, props, in studio or location, I put my vision to work along with yours. If you are looking for a creative individual, hard working, determined, resilient, willing to go the extra mile, with vision in aesthetics and art nude, than i will be pleased to talk to you and establish details.
Please feel free to see some of my other work on OMP ID 405840, Folio32 ID unica.

I work regularily with Elena, as a model she is 'light in the darkness' for anyone who is pushing the boundaries in their approach to photography. She brings passion and creativity to the shoot and pushes herself both mentally and physically into areas that are truly inspiring to capture. If I had to sum her up in words I would say 'she is an artist who performs through the shape, poise and energy of her body, emotion and mind'. One of the most professional, intelligent and creative individuals I have and continue to work with.
I'm a professional photographer and I'm working with models on a daily basis. I've spent month looking around for a good art nude model. Ionela is an outstanding model.
She is really hard working, she always goes beyond my expectations and her physique is so good that I hardly have to retouch anything.
Ionela has the gift of adding that extra touch to a shoot that makes it perfect. I strongly recommend her for professional work."
Worked with Unica recently. Great model with natural posing ability. Recommended.
Follow my silver series on my website and link to all my articles on Uda-Universe des artistes.
Link to all my articles on Uda-Universe des artistes,doesnt exist due to the fact some of my articles have been removed by mistake when Carla left Uda.I am investigating the issue,so i will add all my original articles on my website.
You can already have a sample-Tribute to an artist-My declaration of artistic independence and tribute to the real, unique visionair which is The Artist himself.
Message intended for the individuals that are using models /performing artists to create their art:
IMPORTANT-Please do not offend me and my abilities and skills by offering me your amasing offert of working free or in modelling terms-TFCD
Regardeless of your credentials or anything else you might add to sustain your case,my website certify that i am a professional and i think i earned for a while my right to be paid in this industry
Including the fact that i am presenting modelling on a different stage ,as a performing art and how i perceive it,also adding expression as a form of visual art.Therefore even more reason to get a fair share.
Its not my fault that some professional models still accept TFCD from varios reasons, one might be that they dont trust in their abilities to present themself in front of the camera,so they think they might benefit from a trade project.
With all the respect, i know what i can do and it shows in my body of work.Even more, to be honest my rate doesnt represent my abilities , its just a way to balance the economy here, but as soon as this is established, my rate will go up, so if you are interested in booking me,now is the time.
For the rest of the creative individuals interested in creating together,please check my website for my rates.I love my work too much to do it for free.And i am a wonderfull person when i feel i am respected and appreciated at the level of work that i am doing.
I am selective in my bookings, and i do check refferences and backgrounds.If i can show you different types of work, ranges and styles , i think its only fair i should see the same from you and your portofolio should reflect that.
