* PLEASE NOTE: I don't model anymore, I keep my model profile because it has been a networking tool for many years now. If you would like to get in touch with me, please use my photographer's account - #2629682 Thank you!
I have worked as a freelance model for 10 years now, and I've found myself, lately, behind the camera as much as possible. Not as a photographer ( not yet ) but as a stylist....in fashion, but also dealing with art and design. For me that was always the most exciting part of the shoot, the creation and execution of concept. At this point my career is turning towards art direction and interior styling and I am on the hunt for photographers and makeup artists looking to shoot for the purpose of development. The range of imagery I'm interested in is wildly eclectic, and my ideas for potential shoots never run out. I take a european view of style, fashion and nudity for that matter - I'm liberal, and I gravitate to what moves me, usually dramatic imagery tending toward eroticism. I'm not looking for perfection, in the american sense, I'm not looking for cookie cutter fashion. I'm on the indie side, but I avoid fanaticism of any type. Model Mayhem can be an odd heirarchy, and I appreciate people who, regardless of "success", talent, or 'big fish in a small pond' syndrome, have a sense of humility. I am here to learn and to evolve and I am not embarrassed to do so. Nor should you be. Nor should anyone attempt to impose that upon you.
I have spent about half my life living in Vancouver but I got tired of selling blood to pay the rent. I am close enough however, to be there in less than an hour. I'm also looking for photographers on Vancouver Island willing to shoot interiors for my business and website(s). I am resourceful and fairly well connected, and I have at least a couple handfuls of models at my disposal.
I'm interested in general networking, and bringing creative people on the Island (and the mainland!) together for the purpose of enrichment. Don't hesitate to shoot me an email if you have anything you'd like to discuss.
In terms of friend requests, I have generally only become friends with people I am literally friends with, have worked with or am discussing working with etc.
My portfolio, as it is, has been neglected, and is not a good indication of my abilites as a stylist. Bare with me as I work to change that.
