Hello my dears!
My name is Kato.
I'm a British entrepreneur, based in Portland, Oregon. I'm the founder and CEO of Lambee Co, a small corporation that houses fashion and photography brands as well as other model's pay sites.
I started out in 2005 when I launched the world's very first steampunk clothing company, Steampunk Couture.
For the last 11 years I've been a professional full-time fashion designer, seamstress, stylist, set designer/builder and model and have a lot of experience in hair and makeup.
Today I have a small team of seven photographers, two stylists, an assistant and one lonely webmaster.
On Valentine's Day of 2013, I launched the world's first Steampunk erotic photography site, steamgirl.com, combing heavily-stylized backdrops with hand-made costumes and high quality art nude modeling in something that has come to be dubbed "neo-Victorian fashion erotica".
I used myself as the platform for the website, for convenience sake, but I'm looking to include lots of new faces on the site in addition to the existing, featured models.
I enjoy working with first-time models who are looking to kick-start their modeling careers and want some mass exposure, but experienced models who are facinated by the Steampunk genre and have fancied including some high-quality, neo-Victorian shots in their portfolio are also welcome.
I pay between $300-$900 per photo set.
If you would like to be a featured model on steamgirl.com, feel free to drop me a line at: email@example.com or leave me a message here and my assistant, Alan, or I will get back to you as soon as we can. I recieve 25-50, sometimes up to a whopping 70 applicants A DAY! So your patience is greatly appreciated in regards to how long it may take us to get back to you.
About me personally:
I consider myself to be a very humble, caring, "mother hen" kind of woman and I enjoy taking care of any model that I work with. I'm a down-to-earth, nature-loving, proud introvert and pride myself in my professionalism.
I'm a "Mori Girl" by day and a Steampunk behind the lense.
