I miss this. Who wants to play? I need to update more port to reflect my new hair and smaller frames (about 10 lbs less of me from what is shown in my current port!) I'm willing to do some trade work to update Please be aware that I work full time so I need at least 2 weeks notice for shoots- I'm a busy girl outside of work as well
There are a lot of people I'd love to work with right now. Unfortunately, I need to travel to get to most of them. Currently, the list includes the D.C. area, New York, Missouri, and California . If you can help make that happen, contact me please.
**I tend to be like a guy when it comes to setting up shoots ... I'm not good at taking hints that ya wanna shoot with me. Sly hints don't work, strong hints don't work; just tell me and we'll get something set up :-) **
My name is Beth. If you get to know me well enough, you'll probably start calling me by my nickname: Hawt-Ass Beth or H.A.B. for short. *smirk*
What you need to know about me:
-Iâm a big dork. I openly admit it, so donât say you werenât warned. Iâm also terribly sarcastic. I can almost guarantee that the combination of those two tidbits of information will come in handy.
-I model because it is something that I genuinely love to do. Iâve been at this for over three years and Iâm constantly learning new things and growing. I love being creative and collaborating with wonderful photographers, artists, and other models.
-I love to laugh and have a good time during a shoot, but I know how and when to be serious. A few shots of me making silly faces at you are generally a sign of a good shoot.
-Iâm a bit shy at first, but I tend to warm up to people quite easily.
-I have curves- hips and a bum specifically. My body is not perfect; I realize this. I love my body the way it is, so I hope you do too. I have been working out and have a bit of noticeable muscle-tone, particularly in the abdominal region. Hopefully, I'll have updated photos of this soon.
-Iâm very open-minded when it comes to shooting, but there are some things Iâm just not interested in. I even made a list for your reference, so keep reading
-I've been known to cook for photographers I work with, especially if they are kind enough to give me a place to stay while I am in their area
-I like using dashes to help organize my thoughts.
-Chuck Norris is Thorny Rose strong. True story
I want to do shoots that aren't so typical, shots that bring interest and make people think, as well as shots that are simply beautiful and artistic.
Genres I prefer:
-Fine art nudes
Not interested in:
-TFP/CD nudes (paid assignments only)
-Shoots involving smoking or drug use
-TFP/CD bondage (paid only)
-Damsel in distress
-Foot fetish (sorry, I donât have pretty feet)
-Playboy/Maxim style shots
My stance on the nudies: I really enjoy shooting nudes and creating art. Running around naked is one of my favorite things to do... plus it makes my bag a whole lot lighter for shoots. However, I feel I've reached a point that some compensation is needed for art nudes. If this is what you're interested in shooting with me, shoot me a message. My rates are very reasonable and negotiable. There are some exceptions to this compensation rule (photographers with whom I've collaborated previously, exceptional photographers or for intriguing projects.) but for the most part, I plan to stick by it. It never hurts to ask though.
-Youâve read this far? Keep goingâ¦ youâre almost there.
I've worked with photographers from all over the Midwest and other areas as well. I am willing to travel for a shoot (reimbursement depending on how far, especially with prices of gas being so high). Please contact me with interest or if youâd like some references. Iâm happy to provide them upon request.
I'm currently accepting mainly paid work, with occasional TFP/CD. Nudes will require some type of compensation. My rates vary and are negotiable; don't be afraid to ask. I'm not that expensive.
Contact me with any ideas you'd like to collaborate on or if you'd like to set up a shoot- I've got a few ideas brewing too.
-You made it all the way through. Congratulations! Shoot me a message, leave me a tag or comment, and I can return the favor by checking out your profile.
Oh, and if you just can't get enough, my blog is up and running again:
