"“An artist's only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else's.” (J.D. Salinger) When I joined Model Mayhem it was out of the desire to work with models as professional and accomplished as Jessica Claire Harvey. Not only is JCH a stunningly beautiful model, but she is an accomplished photographer, photo editor, make-up artist, and all around wonderful person. My goal is to build a network of professionals that strive to be the decision makers at the core of the high-fashion industry. I have no doubt that JCH will be in a position of high-power and have a pivotal influence on decisions for our industry in the future. I can only hope that I have the opportunity to work with (or for) her for many years to come. My suggestion to photographers, book with her now before she is a celebrity. If you are an aspiring or accomplished model, have her shoot you now and pick her brain as much as you can. JCH has so much to share and she is worth every penny you pay her. Personally, I will be trying to take full advantage of her creative vision and I will be striving to work with Jessica as much as possible in the future." -Patrick Storm, Photographer, Sacramento, CA
"Jessica is an amazing model.She is a beautiful girl that takes beautiful pics that would enhance anyones portfolio. She's on time,never complains is willing to do whatever it takes (even for us little people) to get the shot. She is fun,energetic and professional. I would work with her anytime, anywhere, whenever, forever. It was my pleasure and i'm honored to have her in my port.!!" Laura Milo, Citrus Heights, CA Hair Stylist
"Jessica was such a pleasure to work with. She is punctual, professional, and an absolute sweetheart. She's extremely easy going and friendly. I loved working with her!!" Renata, Southfield, MI Make-up artist
"Jess is such a treat to shoot with... she knows 'exactly' what a 'move...a little 'left/right' is, she know what a "smidge" is and can stike a pose that will knock your socks off for you. BUT.... you better be ready for to work with a pro! Be capable of working with a pro and be willing to know your working with a pro. Because if you don't you'll never get the chance agan!" Jeff Burkholder, Life Images Productions Gold River, CA photographer
"Your looks are terrific but the energy you put into making these shots come to life is a real tribute to you as a person. Your tireless efforts at "getting it right" throughout a very complex and technically challenging shoot, made all the difference between a good shoot and a great shoot! I will absolutely keep you at the top of my list for future model requirements. Have a great day."-Gerald Schumacher of Spectrum Quest, Pt. Richmond, CA Photographer
"Jessica is not only beautiful but she is also smart and very creative. I was impressed by her wealth of ideas and enthusiasm. Jessica took me to a place where I was hanging out with Cleopatra and Elizabeth Taylor for a few hours!"-Haleh Bryan, San Fransisco, CA Photographer
"'Jessica is one, if not the best, models that I have worked with. Her experience allows for a smooth and productive shoot. I recommend her to anyone that wants great results and I can assure that you will not be disappointed. She is great to work with and is always ready- excellent!." Mario Esco Sacramento, CA
"Jessica Claire presents a fierce and captivating image in front of a camera. Her creativity and charisma provide the photographer with endless possibilities. She maintains a high level of energy and stamina insuring each photo will be sure to capture its full potential. She was a pleasure to work with and I hope to have the pleasure of working with her again in the future." Thirteen Photos, Sacramento, CA Photographer
"no prob it was great working with you. you made my job so easy and I look forward to working with many more times in the future."Shin Kicker Studio, Sacramento, CA Photographer
"Although I've only worked with Jessica Claire Harvey once so far, she was a natural. Easy to get along with and she takes direction well. I was quite pleased with the shoot and the resulting images. Can't wait to work with her again!"- Terry White, Pontiac, MI Photographer
"such a pleasure shooting with you! you were so professional and I can say you're the best model I've shot with. I had a wonderful time and hope to shoot again soon!" Jenna Salazar, Antelope, CA Photographer
"Jessica was such a blast to work with! It’s always great to work with an easy going professional model, and that describes Jessica to a T. From here ability to hit a wide range of poses to the fact that she kept me laughing the whole time, I found myself walking away and saying “Wow! That was fun!” Better yet, when I had a chance to few the shots we captured I was truly amazed at her photogenic qualities. If I’m lucky I’ll have a chance to work with Jessica many more times in the near future. John Sharp, Folsom, CA photographer
"I shot with Jessica recently and it was a wonderful experience. She was friendly, cheerful and willing to try new things. She was on time and ready to go. I gave her some basic (read vague) direction and she was able to make something very nice out of it, one of the best pieces in my portfolio. I would shoot her again in a heartbeat."- Michael White, Sunnyvale, CA Photographer
"Paris, Milan, NYC, Tokyo...Detroit? With apologies to my home town, it, and Southeastern Michigan in general, is not on anybody's list of "hotbeds for world-class glamour/beauty/fashion models". Still, even a blind squirrel eventually finds a nut. Jessica Claire is my nut.
I'm not sure how best to write a testimonial for JC, unless it's to say, "My advice: hire her for your project and get way more and way better than you pay for. How simple a concept is that?" All the stuff clients and photographers want to know before considering hiring a model has already been said by all these other contributors with whom she's worked. Yes, she can turn from classically lovely to napalm seductive to disarmingly adorable within a single burst of frames. Ask her to give you a look, she'll give you precisely what you asked for. Don't ask her, and she'll give you a few dozen looks all so good you'll be challenged to choose a favorite. She takes direction flawlessly but requires none in order to give you a spot-on perfect shot. Sweet, sexy, natural, quirky, light and bright or dark and sultry, it's all there at her immediate disposal. I agree with all the comments about amazing eyes, alabaster complexion, delicate features, fabulous figure, and on and on. But it's what's behind the amazing eyes that matters most, and with JC there's always a direct pipeline from the lens to the eyes and straight through to that sparking, arcing power station of ideas in her head. She can turn on the thousand-yard-stare with the best of 'em, but why would you want her to? There's so much going on in there and the camera sees it. Mine does, anyway, and I'm sure the other photographers represented in her portfolio would agree. You want a mannequin or a mask, that's just one more look in her arsenal, but there are depths and riches for the lens to tap that don't live behind every pair of "amazing eyes" you'll meet.
Along with the one book, one album, one movie...and one camera...I'd choose to be stranded with, Jessica Claire is my desert island model. If she hadn't made the indefensible decision to move to California (selfish, so selfish), we'd be shooting till Dick Cheney freezes over with no fear that we'd run out of ideas, no concern that she'd ever fail to find new ways to amaze through the viewfinder. And while she may argue that I am, in fact, a blind squirrel, she is most definitely a nut. This, I assure you, is high praise and lends an element of fun that somehow dovetails seamlessly with her meticulous professionalism before and during the shoot. Without the slightest intention of insulting the skilled fellow photographers who've had the good fortune to work with her so far, I'm fairly certain she's only just getting warmed up. We haven't seen the best of JC yet, and what we've already seen is pretty remarkable."-Rick Wiggins of WIGGINS! Creative Laboratories and rick|||wiggins|||photography, Detroit/Ann Arbor, MI Photographer
"I've known Jessica for a long time now! We've worked together countless times and have shared many laughs together. Jessica needs no guidance and is able to bring her own style of modeling to every shoot. She is always open to ideas and very enthusiastic. I have NEVER had a bad shoot with Jessica even after a million shots! She seems to be always changing and evolving!" -Courtney Dailey, Los Angeles, CA Photographer/ Make-up Artist
"Working with the lovely ms. Claire is a delight! She is bubbly, fun and can shoot a mean sexy stare at any camera. Anyone should be so lucky to work with such a talent!" Make-up by Caity Did, Sacramento, CA Make-up Artist
"You !@#$in rock!"-Heather Blaine, Phoenix, AZ Hair Stylist
"Jessica is a pleasure to work with, she is very professional and brings energy to the shoot!"- Rochelle Rietow, East Lansing, MI Model
"Jessica was excellent to work with. She was so much fun on the set, she definately got into character and made my clothing come to life on camera. I was very pleased on how down to earth she is and very pleasant to work with. I look forward to working with Jessica again in the near future because she definately made my clothing look fierce!."Noelle C of Faedrah Clothing Co; Sacramento, CA Wardrobe Stylist
"Jessica is a great model. I enjoy working with her a lot. She has quality that I appreciate most about models. She is punctual and was very professional. There is no doubt that we will be working again." Tom Huynh, Sacramento, CA Photographer
"The first time I worked with Jessica was a blast! she was easy to work with, did I also say Fun!. She poses great and the camera just loves her! I really would want to work with her again on a different layout/theme/concept! Shoot you soon again soon! Lite Box Digital Photographer
"If only there were more models out there like this gem. I swear, I could poke this girls eye's out with one of my brushes and she still wouldn't move a muscle. Nice skin tone, even complexion, very pretty- the ideal canvas! Not to mention very laid back, fun, nice, and easy to work with. Would definitely work with her again if she came into town. Love ya, doll! Michigan will always miss you smile"-Alexandra, Rochester Hills, MI Make-up Artist
"It was truly a pleasure working with such great elegant beauty. Her beautiful smile is as amazing as her attitude. I can not wait to work with her again."-Werner Najera, Antelope, CA Photographer
"This is my first time working with Jessica and I must say that everything everyone else has said about her is right on target. Jessica takes her modeling very seriously and puts forth a lot of effort. Before our shoot, while we were trying to get it scheduled, she was very communicative with emails concerning both the details of the shoot and with coordinating a time that would fit both of our schedules. She arrived for the shoot on time with makeup appropriate for what we discussed and with several outfits to work with along with accessories. During the shoot she followed directions without hesitation and added her own ideas when I asked if there was anything she wanted to try. When I posed her for specific shots she did exactly as I asked. In addition she knows how to move and how to position herself when specific directions are not given. Any one working with Jessica as a model will not be disappointed."-Kent Schroeder of KSphotos, Fair Oaks, CA Photographer
"It's such a pleasure to work with Jessica. Not only is she an energetic and talented model, but a true professional. The shoot location was less than ideal, but she never complained. All I had to do was point the camera her way and she did the rest. I look forward to working with her again."-Xue Vue Photography, Sacramento, CA Photographer
"You push the button, we do the rest,” is how George Eastman explained his Kodak camera. A similar idea applies when focusing on Jessica as your subject. Easily one of the more gifted, photogenic and skilled models I have photographed, Jess most importantly offers an energy and spirit that makes any project fun and memorable. A great student herself of photography, Jess is capable of any style or mood and can easily transition a look mid-shoot from cute to sultry and from glamorous to artsy. Brilliant with gorgeous looks and amazing talent while incapable of a bad shot, Jess approached each of our collaborations with passion, creative input and an eye for perfection. Jess has a unique ability to fully understand the original image idea, what’s necessary to achieve the capture and with little or no direction. Did I mention those exquisite blue eyes and perfectly shaped ruby lips? Jess is the perfect inspiration and a dream-come-true for any photographer. With Jess all you really have to do is “push the button.” -James Taylor, Rochester Hills, MI Photographer
"Jessica is a joy to work with. She's friendly, needs no help in front of the camera, and has piercing eyes perfect for any shoot!" -Dino Mangano, Mt. Clemens, MI Photographer
"You were so much fun, and so professional. With the great skin and beautiful eyes- I truly had a great time transforming you into so many different looks. Thanks for the fun!!!" -Heather Wilson, Phoenix, AZ Make-up Artist
"Jessica is a true pleasure to work with.... an open-minded creative professional with great natural beauty." -Roy Vanover, Bay City, MI Photographer
"Jessica is one of the most talented models I have had in my lens. She has versatility and energy and really needs little or no direction. She picks up instantly on the concept and really brings it to the camera. She returns emails, keeps in touch and is totally professional. Not only those things- she can do her own makeup- beautifully! I enthusiastically recommend her to anyone looking for a model." -Brett Ferguson, Gold River, CA Photographer
"Shooting with Jessica was a wonderful experience. It was a pleasure to work with a model who is both professional, comfortable and confident. She is motivated to do her best to achieve a strong image while being open-minded to creative ideas and concepts, and takes direction very well. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Jessica Claire again in the future."- Craig McKenzie of McKenzie Bros Photography Photographer
"I learned so much shooting with you Jessica. You were an unmeasurable influence on my work. Anytime I post a photo and you comment saying you like it, well, it means a lot to me. It really does. I've shot a lot of models now and few have taught me as much as you did about modeling and about photography. I honestly could never repay you for the ... Read Morethings I learned from you. Some of the photos we shot together are really awesome but I didn't know shit about what I was doing back then. I knew what I wanted to do but not necessarily how to get there. Those photos are awesome only because you are awesome. You did help me think "outside the box". I would absolutely love to shoot with you again. We should definitely do that someday!
Seriously, thank you. Thank you so much for believing in me and learning me some. I cannot imagine being where I am today as a photog without you. You really, really were an unmeasurable influence on my work. I would be honored to shoot with you again. I can only imagine what we could achieve today. Plus it would awesome to get all tight. You rock big time. I always look at your new photos and think how f@#king awesome they are. smile" Tate Hemlock, Tempe, AZ Photographer
"A beautiful blend of attractiveness, professionalism, creative thinking and attention to detail. That's what you get when working alongside Jessica Claire. She'll wow you with her modeling adaptability and magnetism. And when that connection evolves, all you have to do is press the shutter. Can you ask for anything more?" Doug Kean of Shotz Photography, South Riding, VA Photographer
"Jessica is amongst my favorite models. She has these powerful expressive eyes that illuminates her personality for the camera. She is a joy to work with as she is fearless, knows how to move and obviously takes beautiful images. I highly recommend her and always look forward to working with her again."
