About Me

I am currently ONLY shooting for my long term project of environmental nude portraits in unusual locations. If you are not interested/willing to pose nude in strange places, please don't waste my time or yours. Compensation is only trade, I provide images of the models choosing for their own use. Exceptions to this are for any profits made from print sales(which I will split with the model) or occasionally for travel expenses. I do also consider it a fair trade to shoot some clothed images in exchange for someone posing for my project, so feel free to ask for that if it interests you. Also, anonymity is an option if you wish to work with me but have concerns about work/family/whatever, it is not critical to my work that faces be visible and that people are identifiable. Just let me know if that is something you'd like.

I can host travelling models and am happy to do TFLodging. I live in Crown Heights Brooklyn right off of the 2/3/4/5 Express Train.

If I friended you it's probably because I'd like to work with you at some point.

I try to keep these images as simple and natural looking as possible. For this reason, I can't use any models with any of the following things:

*Multiple large tattoo's (a few are ok as long as they are small and can be edited out or hidden by posing)
*Extremely unnatural haircuts/colors/styles
*Noticeable plastic surgery, esp breast implants.
*Other major body modifications

If you aren't sure, ask me if something is ok. Piercings are usually easy enough to edit out as are small tattoos.

This isn't about money or fame for me, I shoot for self expression, self discovery, and adventure. I am compelled to make my work because I want others to have a taste of the experiences I have in these spaces. I enjoy sharing and exhibiting my work and may even do a book of these images somewhere down the line.

My shoots take place on location in abandoned buildings, industrial sites, rooftops, abandoned subway stations, run down psychiatric hospitals, and other interesting parts of city infrastructure. These are real places with real dangers, they are not sets or studios, they are rusty, run down, amazing places. I generally shoot in these locations illegally and without permission. So if you are squeamish about a little dirt, climbing through windows or occasionally having to sweet talk security guards it's probably best you pass on working with me.

I do occasionally venture over to Philadelphia and/or Boston. If you're in one of those areas and are interested in working with me, don't hesitate to say so.

For the curious and for meeting purposes, this is what I look like:

Hey, ran out of PMS.. but I will be traveling to Brooklyn in the next two months. Would love to do a tf shoot with you, I have a lot of concepts in mind as I'm sure you do. You can view my portfolio at www.alyssavibes.weebly.com . I have been starting to take my photography in a new direction of dark conceptual , I may be a little twisted inside as we all are and this style of shooting is a great beautiful way to express it. I really love your work.
