Creative expression through the eyes of a model:
Tools: Shadows, Lighting, Movement, Stillness, Curves, Angles, Expression, Long Hair, Joy, Sadness, Empathy, Incorporation, Whips, Fire, Art, Life, Nature, People, Creation, Interaction, Play, Beauty in the Unusual, Expression through Form

My life is a constant journey of creative expression. Whether while posing for an art project or photoshoot, or during a human interaction; there is always an emphasis on creation. One day it may be actually using my hands in a concrete art project, another it may be creating a new character in my day to day interactions with the people on the subway... Sometimes it could just be stepping back and changing my perspective before I speak/act...Other times it is trying a new way of listening or communicating... It could even be the way I style my outfit or walk down the street...Either way I feel that if one is truly an artist whether in the classical sense or in spirit, there is never actually a moment that does not have either undertones or the driving force as creation...Unless it is destruction which-always yields to and is in essence the foundation for creation...Which is why I love the medium of figure modeling because I am a part of making a vision a reality, ultimate creation.

A full time muse, who is blessed enough to have creative collaboration as my job-description.
Living to be a part of the creative process and model for various mediums including: Photography, body-painting, film, drawing, painting, sculpting, reference imagery, amongst many other genres within those respective mediums. With over 9 years of experience which brings a rare level of professionalism, and hard-working attitude to the table which results in the highest quality experience and resulting art.

---Capable of doing hair/make-up  and wardrobe for a multitude of various looks as long as we discuss the details ahead of time---

Able fire-eat and set stuffs on fire
Training in both single and double bullwhip tricks (Think Cat Woman, Zorro, Indiana Jones)
Also especially love to play outside and am not afraid to get adventurous shooting on location (I still like climbing in trees)

(I LOOOOVVVVVEEEE adventure and am always up to travel and to create in an interesting and/or different type of location, and have a valid passport)

Blessed to have a large network of co-creators I work with ready including:
Models, Body-Paintors, Stylists, designers, Hair and Make-up artists, as well as a Videographer, stunt-man, Equipment rentals, and various Photo Studios or possible Outdoor Locations... If given enough notice I can get in touch with any of them for our booking/collaboration.

Since this is my full time career I rarely have time for trade work, My rates are very reasonable and are calculated depending on content, intended usage, and the release involved.

As an art NUDE model, an extensive costume wardrobe and makeup collection is available that can be used for our collaboration with $25 fee if you want me to lug around, pay baggage fees, and wear clothing.

That being said there are a few things that will be given priority to make time for which are in conjunction with receiving below my normal rates:
-Plane tickets
-Hosting in a hotel or airbnb (I will NOT stay with clients)
-Projects that will include incredible and unique wardrobe for me to keep
-When weather permits while I am traveling, I will always leave one day open to shoot in an interesting graveyard (preferably a desolate one as I prefer to do these shoots nude) these are for trade and shared rights, which means I get full rights to do as I please with the images produced.
-Projects that promote the De-sexualization of women's bodies
-Projects that are completely Unique and ideas that have not been done before and are therefore really,really interesting

"I've worked with Amber many, many times over the past 8+ years... has it been that long? I watched her develop from an unsure newbie, to a confident, experienced, and dynamic professional! Never had a bad shoot with her. Even when we were both "down" we still got somethin...g great. She's a true professional, and can work with any photographer from neophyte to internationally published professional. You won't be sorry working with her! We'd still be working if she hadn't moved all the way across the world to CA..... well, it seems like across the world." more less
