Please note: current hair color is Red, current style is a Mohawk.
I am doing what I do not because I think I am going to make a ton of money doing it, or because I think I am going to be the next 'big thing'. I do this because I love art and I love what I do. That being said..
I am currently mostly looking mostly for paid work. I am willing to do TFP/CD depending on the photographer/project. I have particular interest in vintage, retro, gothic, lolita, latex, and artistic work, though I love trying to create almost any kind of look, and all associated challenges.
So far, I have done almost all of my own hair/makeup in my portfolio. While I am proficient in this area, I would LOVE to work any H/MUA's out there. Same goes for Clothing Designers and Wardrobe Stylists.
Please message me to contact me about any ideas you have, and hopefully we can work something out!
Piercings include Septum, Lip (lower left side), three in the right and left earlobe, and a Forward Pinna on the right. All of these can be hidden or taken out for shoots.
Group Shoot Policy:
I block off group shoot times in two-hour increments. The second hour is for shooting, the first is for getting wardrobe, hair, and makeup situated. While I realize I could book a photographer every hour, I prefer QUALITY to QUANTITY. As such, for most group shoots I will only have four to five slots open. Please note that I don't require the photographer to book ME for the first hour, though if you want to be part of the creative process that's fine, I will just have that time devoted to preparations. Thanks!
I don't usually like to bring escorts because I find them to be distracting, and I'm not afraid of you. I could totally take you in a fight. Try me. That being said, when shooting location work I tend to have A LOT of crap with me to move around and helping hands are nice. Not having someone with me is also sometimes not an option if I'm on the road. If perchance I do have an 'escort' per convenience or necessity, I promise they will be unobtrusive, quiet, and probably somewhere else while we're actually shooting.
I do not accept random friends requests or add people randomly. If I have requested you as a friend or accepted your request, it means I would like to work with you!
Area's of at least semi-regular travel and travel policy: please note that with the exception of California and sometimes Mass, I drive most of these places and am willing to schedule shoots at 'in between' locations at the beginning/end of listed dates! Also, I'm willing to travel anywhere not scheduled around school provided travel expenses are covered for locations outside of Columbus' 270 outer belt.
