About Me

Dear Visitor,

First, thank you kindly for visiting my profile. I do hope you find this bio informative:

I was born in the Philippines and raised in Pomona, a suburb of Los Angeles, California. I graduated with a Masters Degree in Landscape Architecture at the Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland, and before that a Bachelors Degree in Architecture at the University of Southern California. My first experience in front of a camera was in New York in 2008. I modeled some pieces of my friend's zero-waste clothing line and truly enjoyed the process of creating interesting compositions using the garments, concept, the lines/angles of my figure, and my attitude brought forth. Though the pictures were not used in the final edit, I was very grateful for the time spent in studio and was refreshed to explore another facet of design- one which is more personal and interpretive.

I currently model to continue this practice of creative expression. If it develops into something more intensive, I trust with proper timing and practicality I will use it to add depth to my career. Ultimately, I would like to use this skill to support ethical/organic trades in the fashion industry, promote a healthy image in modern women, and work with brave concepts involving social issues. I could appreciate this industry is not perfect, and such a goal is difficult to achieve. However I find I am happiest when I am true to myself; likewise, I'm hoping to work with teams which share these values.

**As a preference, I will not do images with nudity of any sort, fetish, self-mutilation, senseless violence, and revealing glamour photography. As an individual, I like to maintain a healthy body, mind, and spirit, and I use these to build up my portfolio.

In terms of personal style and taste, I've always been inspired by Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Conneley, Audrey Hepburn, and Zhang Ziyi; their sense of class and magnanimity is what I look to be in real life and the characters I play. I suppose looking up to actresses can be superficial to certain degrees, but I think it's ok to have references. In hindsight, I'm not afraid to be quirky and original in front of the camera; and I'm definitely not afraid to learn something new. In addition to the genres listed in my profile, I'd like to elaborate on some details which I'd like to try:

-Fashion: ethical, casual, urban, business, formal, experimental/alternative, surreal
-Dynamic uses of indoor/outdoor space and motion
-Artistic/conceptual
-Vintage/atmospheric photography
-Images portraying sensitive levels of emotion
-Images with impact and a story!

As a member on the team I strive to be a professional, which includes exceptional levels of hard work, flexibility, optimism, patience, and open-mindedness. If requested I am happy to provide constructive feedback after a shoot, and would love to receive it as well. Regarding this, I could definitely understand we are all still learning, whether or not we've had years of experience.

If you like my portfolio and bio, and would like to work with me, please do not hesitate to send a message. Similarly, I also have a design/art portfolio:

I'm currently upgrading my website which will be available in the near future. If you're interested in working with me as a designer/artist, feel welcome to contact me as well. I'm very open-minded to expand my portfolio with new projects! =) Thank you so much, and I look forward to hearing from you!


Best Wishes,
Lesley Ann
