About Me*My hair is now auburn and is a bit past shoulders but not too long, matches my current photo
I am an actor, model, classically trained pianist, and feminist looking to collaborate, create and grow.
As a freelance model, I am willing to travel depending on location and I am very reasonable when it comes to the negotiation of compensation. Giving proper credit to the talent behind the photos is of the utmost importance to me and I always make sure to give credit to the photographer/hair/makeup/assistants etc.
I studied acting at the Stella Adler Conservatory of Acting and have also worked on my craft extensively with the acting coach Joseph Pearlman. TV and film are my main arenas of interest acting wise, but I love theatre too. I'm a huge cinema/pop culture buff; I graduated magna cum laude from Purchase College with a degree in film, so if you want someone who knows a ton of film/tv/music references, I'm the dame you're lookin' for.
In addition to acting, I have some modeling experience; I was in a fashion film for photographer Tiffany Frances called "Sparkling Black & White", I've walked in runway shows for Tempest and Serenity, Blajk Clothing and Jes Davis. I have also collaborated with the photographer Anita Anti. I'm looking to collaborate with other photographers, to build my portfolio, to have fun and to keep improving.
24 Hour Cancellation policy minimum:
If I have to reschedule a shoot, I will always give at least 48 hours advance notice.
I am open to rain-checks and will happily provide other days that I am available.
No flakes (especially TFP); I respect the time of other artists, it is imperative that my time is respected as well.
If you flake on a shoot, I will not get in touch with you again.
I am happy to do TFP work; however, paying gigs take priority. Collaboration is important to me, if we do get in touch, please let me know the following details of the shoot:
2. Mood board/concept
3. If there is a team assembled (hair, makeup etc) or if I need to prepare on my own. I am able to do my own hair and makeup in a pinch depending on the concept but prefer to work with hair and makeup artists.
TFP Shoot policy: If I am working with you TFP, before anything is published, there has to be a clear agreement (verbal and written) between the photographer and I about-
1. What photos are to be published
2. How the photos are to be edited/retouched
3. How many edited copies I will receive and where I am permitted to publish photos
4. What photos I am permitted to publish
5. How many photos I will receive from the shoot and by what method (flashdrive, dropbox etc)
6. Approximately how long it will take to receive the photos from the shoot/have the photos edited (if the photographer does the editing)
My work is incredibly serious to me and I will not approve a photo that I do not fully endorse. I am willing to permit a photographer to use a photo that I do not personally care for as long as:
-the photo doesn't contain nudity/partial nudity/explicit content
-the photo is not directly associated with me or my social media (i.e., removing my name from the photo credit)
Also to save time, I am not a fan of pictures of me taken from a slightly lower to low angle of me. If you are capable of taking well composed and flattering portraits from low angles and have proof of this, I am open to shooting that way. Otherwise, it's a no from me.
Otherwise I reserve the right to ask for the photo to not be published or to be taken down if the established pre-publishing guidelines are broken. If a photographer operates more comfortably with the use of model release forms, I am willing to sign a standard model release form as long as the terms are clear but reserve the right to receive the contract via e-mail before shooting in order to investigate the contract.
The photos on here are my property and the property of the photographers listed, please do not use them without explicit written permission.
If I've friend requested you, it means that I admire your work and that I would love to work with you in the future.
Punctuality, creativity, empathy, humor and flexibility are qualities that I value and are qualities that I bring to a set. If you would like to work with me, I promise to bring those qualities and more to make your vision come alive :)
