OMG You're back!?
Well, sort of...
OMG can I shoot you now!?
Cliff Notes: Look! A Flow Chart! Don't act like you're not impressed
The longer version: I'm not coming back to this full-time. I'm not actually very interested in your money, which is why I'm only booking paid gigs with people I already have a working relationship with and I know I like, or people who I know are spoken highly of among my peers and they never got a chance to work with me prior to "retirement" and are, for some strange reason, still dying to shoot. Subtext: I no longer need to put up with being treated like shit just to feed myself, so I wont be. #sorrynotsorry
What I am interested in is interesting quality images I can have fun making, shit I feel personally connected to, Art if you will. I'm not hung up anymore on what's going to be best "for my portfolio" or what will help me book more gigs. I can make weird shit, I can make ugly shit, I can make big landscape shit where I'm only the size of an ant, I can make emotional shit, I can still make plain ol' pretty shit, I can make whatever I want now. I'm here to make cool shit. This does NOT mean I'm shooting trade for charity, there are enough bad photos of me on the internet to last me a lifetime, even when the shoot is fun I am still doing work and I expect to get something in return for it. Please make an honest-to-goodness comparison of our portfolios before telling me that you can "add what's missing" to mine.
The cities listed in my infograph above are not the ONLY places I will ever be for the rest of my life, but they are the places you are MOST LIKELY to catch me in. I travel to Montreal, LA, and the Baltimore area (DC and Philly accessible) at least once per year. Anywhere else I wind up is purely due to where my husband is traveling for work and if I happen to tag along. Not at all unheard of but certainly not reliable. Still, it's highly unlikely his work will be bringing me through bumblefuck anytime soon (sorry bumblefuck) so don't count on me just magically showing up if you live out in the middle of nowhere. I am no longer "touring" anywhere simply to take photos, so you can send me all the "WHEN you make it to _____"s all you want, just know that I will probably never be there. Like ever. You're too late.
My portfolio is clearly not wholly representative of what I look like currently. I'm okay with this, as I said above, I'm here to make and showcase cool shit I like, not "build a portfolio". My stats are accurate. Yes, my body has changed since 2009. Here's what I'm looking' like these days.
Models: I happily respond to reference checks. Having worked with someone does not automatically mean I would work with them again or recommend them. My unpleasant experiences are very few and far between, but they do exist, so please don't assume.
