About Me



It is my passion to ignite your creative potential.  Express who you truly are without fear of judgement and ridicule both from society and your inner self.



STATUS UPDATE: I am not doing much shooting these days.  I have been out of commission recovering from a head injury.  Please rest assured I am doing well now.  I have begun to transition into retirement with semi occasional shoots.  I have one final trip to New England planned this spring/summer and it is very likely that I will rarely travel again for a while as I focus on building my health and wellness business.  If you're having an event, please do reach out to me.  If I am free I will consider all offers but, no promises will be made that I can accommodate them.

Please also review my updated chosen genres of shooting.  Further details can be found below in the "Rates and Genres" section.





BACKGROUND:

I started as a photographer.  I have a BFA in Art with a concentration in Photography and Computer Digital Imagery.  This gives me an edge as a model because I am completely in tune with composition and lighting.  As a photographer and model, I have made it my mission to inspire others to reach their highest level of self both as an artist and a human being.  Fear is all in your head.  I'm here to help you slay that beast!  I myself went into retirement for years due to an attempt at others to suppress my creative spirit.  It was a blow to my heart, but I have now decided that I will not allow the small mindedness of others affect my personal path to do what I truly LOVE!!  I encourage others to do the same! Do not let the small minded majority hold you back from pursuing your dreams.  If you can relate, please feel free to reach out to me and I will share my story with you smile

EVENTS



None planned anytime soon




OUTDOOR SHOOT LOCATIONS



Ranson WV: 1920's Abandoned Dairy Farm and refinished home



I have access to an old abandoned dairy farm with dilapidated outbuildings and access to the fully renovated farm house on private property.  Click Here for photos of the property.  Photos of the home coming soon!  Note: Even though it's getting cold, we can alternate shooting inside and out to keep me warm.  If it's insanely cold or windy, we probably won't be able to shoot outside.  I will make very attempt though to shoot outside!



[b]STUDIO LOCATIONS


I am the resident model with 2 amazing studios in the DC/MD/VA/PA area.  The studio fee and light usage is included in the booking of a shoot with me at these locations.  For $125 and hour, you will have access to all the studios have to offer including lighting, assistance with equipment, wardrobe (depending on location), model release, and of course one on one shooting time with me! 



***3MI Studio - Martinsburg WV***

3MI is the largest studio in the area with 3 floors and 9000sqft of shooting space. You cannot go wrong by choosing this locations! We have multiple pre built sets, natural light, studio lights, and backdrops for all your creative needs!  There’s no need to be outside in the hot, cold or wind to get our photoshoot on!

You will have access to a 4 bedroom home with multiple sets.  Each room has a different set up including backdrops, natural light, strobes, props etc.  Being so close to DC, THATstudio is an excellent choice for those in the NOVA/DC Metro Area.

Please note: I cannot offer discounts for shoots booked at these studios.  Please do not try to negotiate.





TRAVEL UPDATE



None planned until further notice



RATES AND SHOOTING GENRES



Currently, my rate is $125 per hour with a 2 hour minimum.  However, if I am in your area shooting already or you are geographically close to me, I am willing to shoot for less than the 2 hour minimum.  I take my craft seriously and in order to provide you with the best experience possible.  I am focusing on the quality of my performance as a model not quantity of shoots.  After the increase, I will try to be as flexible as possible to accommodate your financial needs but, please understand this isn't a guarantee and I will not reduce my rates drastically.

I will no longer be shooting lingerie, pin up, or sexy style shoots of any kind unless I have already committed to doing one of those shoots...which there is currently only 1 left in March 2017.  While I respect that these genres are highly desirable for photographers and fun, the work does not speak to me as an artist.  To sum it up clearly, I will not be shooting sexy pin up style work. So that means no bathtubs, no cute outfits, no smiley happy type work.  If that's something you enjoy I will gladly refer you to some wonderful models.  The only exception to this is a highly creative concept that is moving and very very unique.  Please be aware though, that I may turn those shoots down and please do not take it personally.  It's not about you.  It's about me...ha.  It seriously is though.  I am still open to workshops that teach working professionals how to increase their boudoir skills to attract clients. As an entrepreneur myself, I enjoy assisting others build their business.

I offer a great discount if you book me for a full day of shooting. PM me for details.

TF work is severely limited.  Please do not be offended if I cannot accept a TF offer as I get tons of offers and I am currently focusing on building my home business to plan for retirement.  It's not personal.  Paid work does take precedence and I am even limiting that these days. I only accept TF work if you pay for travel/hotel arrangements on a dollar for dollar trade.

I do not lower my rate for clothed vs nude work. The skills I bring to the table are the same regardless of the apparel I wear or don't wear. That being said, I consider myself a professional with years of experience.  My portfolio should speak for itself.  My dedication to my craft is exceptional and I do not lower my rates for various genres of work.

Cancelation Policy: If you cancel on me without approximately a 24 hour notice, I will not reschedule with you unless you pay a 25% percent deposit [local shoots] or a 50% deposit for shoots I have to travel for.  I also require 50% of the agreed upon compensation at the time of cancelation for shoots within a 90 minute drive and 100% for shoots I have to travel over 90 minutes.  I also reserve the right to never book with you again. I rely on this income. I often invest time preparing for the shoot and studying work to ensure you get the results you want. I say all that to say, I respect you as a professional so, I expect you to do the same.

No Show Policy

If you fail to show up for a confirmed shoot, the balance of the agreed compensation for the shoot is still due to me OR a 75% deposit is due for a make up shoot (I reserve the right to deny a make up shoot).



WORKING WITH ME:

I take direction very well and can adapt to a specific concept or look rather quickly however, I self pose very well. Because of my experience as a photographer, I am skilled at working with my environment and being cognizant of lighting through a flow of poses without much guidance.

If you book me:

1.) I will show up early and ready to go based on the guidelines of the shoot.
2.) I am constantly doing research to improve my craft, and I will research the concept/idea behind a shoot ahead of time in order to ensure you get what you are looking for out of a shoot.
3.) I am able to do my own hair and makeup.  Unless specific requests are made for a specific look, I usually do minimal face makeup and wear my hair down and neat.  If you require something elaborate (Theater, costume, etc) you will need to hire an MUA.  Also note, I am no longer doing glamour or sexy work so, please do not ask for that type of look.
    
Beginners/Amateurs:

I am here for you! I do not discriminate who I work with based on the artist's experience.  Please reach out to me!  It is my passion to help others improve their craft and I will do my best to inspire you!

Models that means you too! Please reach out to me.  I am very willing to share whatever experience or advice may help you advance your career.





    I DO NOT shoot explicit/pornographic, or most erotic work content of any kind.  Please do not ask.  I reserve the right to determine what concepts are and are not within my comfort

While some may enjoy this, and I respect their choice, it is not for me and I expect that you respect my boundaries.

"I have less time to work with models than in the past so the list of people I work with repeatedly is quite short. Amy is one of the few at the top of the list. She works in an organic, flowing fashion, without pretense, and brings a sense of power to the photos. She is very easy to work with and thrives with little to no direction. Each time we have worked together, the images have been varied. We talk very little about what we are going to do; it just happens." Read less
