About Me

I'm stepping behind the lens officially over here:

I'm doing very little modeling these days due to my chronically poor health.  That doesn't mean I don't want to shoot at all anymore, I just have to be careful in not overloading my schedule.  If you do want to contact me, please don't begin your message with any variation of "I like to photograph weird-looking women, and you would be PERFECT!"  I know you think you're being complimentary, but trust me, that is not how it comes across.

Nude status is set at VERY selective nudes... IF you play fair, are nice and don't try to get me to do things I don't want to do.  We must discuss exactly what that is beforehand.

I am here to make art.

I don't like to pigeonhole myself with categories, but since you need somewhere to start... I like to create images that evoke an emotional response from the viewer.  From vintage to goth, steampunk to fantasy, pinup to natural, pop art portraits to weird fashion, I love it all.  I am always interested in hearing from talented photographers looking to collaborate.  Send me a message with your ideas and we'll go from there.  I also have a fairly extensive collection of costumes and outfits to pull from.

A WORD ABOUT TFCD SHOOTS.  I'm happy to trade with you, provided you actually uphold your end of the deal.  Please plan on delivering your photos in a timely manner, otherwise plan on paying me.  I'm not working for free, I need to be getting something out of this too.  I'm not saying I need an entire CD full of images the next day, I'm just getting really frustrated having to chase down photographers months later to get my payment for the shoot.  As a matter of fact, I will now be implementing a Douchebag Fee of $50 per day past my promised photo day.  If I had done this from the beginning, I could have retired by now.

Please note that I do have three tattoos, one on my ankle, one on my back and one right below my sternum.  They have been photoshopped out of some of the photos in my profile.  Contact me for more details if it might be a problem.  I can assure you they are all quite beautiful though!

I do not do any kind of erotic shoots.  I do not do videos of any kind.  On model releases:  I am not opposed to signing them, and will be happy to do so, as long as I see a copy of what I will be signing BEFORE the shoot.  No exceptions to this one, folks.  If you want me to sign something, email it to me before I get there.
