About Me

ZERO TRADE. NONE. ZILCH. NADA.
I'm a commercial artist/photographer, consultant and educator. I have zero time to work for free. And yes: I do pay models when I am in photographer mode, so there's just no excuse to not pay your talent. Go take pictures of friends and family if you want to "have fun".... Sorry to be so blunt, but the requests have been overwhelming, despite my infos below.


{Scroll to the bottom to see current "me", sans makeup....}

TL;DR:
[br]

I'm one of the "first generation" of professional roaming art models, formerly commercially represented in NYC + Lisbon, with a background in dance, theatre and classical music.  I call on my varied experience in the performance arts as my main inspiration to move and express through movement. . . In 2015 I relocated back to NYC after 3 successful years operating photo studios in the DC/Baltimore area.

Available for hire in all artistic capacities in the DFW Metro, and for projects in the other areas of Tejas, with frequent trips to ___soon.__.



I like the fact that we can all be friends, but remember: You RESPECT your friends...so please keep that in mind when booking a shoot with me...

TO REACH ME, THE BEST METHOD IS: carlyadastra@gmail.com

RTFM:

Hi.
(Did you make it this far!? TeeHee)
I like art. smile
In fact- I like art so much I attempt to make a living doing it.
    I dance in front of the lens + steal moments from behind it.

RETIREMENT=NONSENSE


As of 2017 I will continue to travel/tour & model on a part-time basis as allowed by the demands in my career as a Commercial Photographer, Art Director, and Educator.

I love to be outdoors, I love conveying emotion, telling a story, becoming a character, playing with props, using wardrobe, am the fabric-in-the-wind-on-a-sand-dune champ. I love direct--hard-lighting in studios, sets I can play in, a location that inspires me to step back in time.
As bad-ass as I sound now- just remember I'm a sweet little kitton who's afraid of heights and stairs, is mid-diagnosis of Fibromyalgia, and has gotten Lyme's Disease AND glass-to-the-bone-in-my-foot-with-shoes-on.
Oh.
And that one time we all almost fell off a mountain....
>.<


Other consulting capabilities: Art Direction, Set Design/Building, Workshop teaching/organizing, Studio Organization to Reduce Workflow Anxiety, and more!  <----inquire within, but can include portfolio review/building, pre-production workflow, image capture capabilities or post-production
I'm also available as Hair/Makeup <-----MM# 144223


Trade? Not going to happen. Sorry- I seek trade work now as a Photographer, so unless you can get my time with my camera with another model (which is always a fun trio!) it's not feasible in anyway. Hard Stop.

OTHER FUNFACTS ABOUT CARLY!!
- THANKS TO SQUARE AND PAYPAL, I DO ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS. I'm also on Venmo.
- My Hair is currently an asymmetrical bob, and the color is light auburn,with natural strawberry blonde/blonde highlights.

-My age is a mystery!  I list a younger age to appear in searches, as most photographers cap their searches at 30. hmm I "look" a range of 25-35. So, for most shoots, my ambiguous aging (ha!) allows for a variety of ranges.
-I like to inspire people; it is what keeps me going when I'm freaking out about paying my bills and the like... [/b]
