A few notes first...
My sincerest apologies to those who try to get a hold of me. Modeling is not my job and thus, I don't check here as often as some may want me to. I promise, should you send me a message I will respond when I see it, but it may be a few days-weeks-(god forbid again) months before I do. As such, same day shoot requests? Not very likely to happen.
On Friend Requests:
In general, I don't accept friend requests simply to build up my friend numbers. If you send me one I'm going to check three things before I accept/deny. 1) What you are. 2) Where you are. 3) The quality of your work.
If you are a photographer, make artist, artist, etc I'm not going to care as much about where you are, because hey, we all travel, right? If I deny your request though, it's because there's something about your work that I don't feel is for me. If I accept? It probably means I would enjoy working with you or like your style. You'd have to PM me for details. (though I apologize for the possible wait time).
If you're a model? Well... Then I'm going to pay more attention to where you are. If you're in my area, it's likely that I enjoy your work and wouldn't mind working with you. If you're not and I deny you, it's nothing personal. I just don't see the odds of us working together being very high. If I accept, then you've probably got a phenomenal portfolio and I'm trying to figure out how you found me.
That said, on to the "Bio" Stuff.
Modeling, for me, is... well, it started as a necessity. I needed a head shot for a license and had a client that does some photography. One shoot latter, I had a head shot. And that's when I discovered how many of my female friends did modeling. Much harassment from them later, I had an MM account. That was in 2008.
Since then I've dabbled. Some fashion, some nude, some art, some "Hey! I have an idea!" For me, modeling isn't a calling. It's simply something I enjoy. It's what gives me a chance to step outside my day, and be something else. It also lets me meet some interesting people, see some beautiful places, and (generally) have a good time.
So, what am I looking for... Well, really, I enjoy helping a photographer get the image they're looking for. I love expanding my portfolio in new ways and am open to ideas, suggestions, or just general thoughts. I'll admit. My preference is for paid shoots. My day job is client based so if I'm taking time for photography, I'm generally having to block myself out of work time. That doesn't mean that I won't accept TF*. It just means I'm going to be looking for something. New idea, make up, lighting, location, or just something to expand my portfolio with.
Realistically though? Your best bet is to drop me a line. Let me know what you're looking to do, where it likely will be, and when you'd like (though keep in mind I may be a little bit in getting back to you). We can always chat and figure it out. ^.^
