About MeI'm a big fan of lighting and have 2 different lighting setups in a fully equipped studio in Lexington, KY. I can also bring my equipment on location. I'm an energetic hands on photographer who loves connecting with models and creating magic for everyone involved. I have a crazy imagination and enjoy fashion, fairytales and food!
A little about me:
I was born in Germany.
I grew up in Australia and spent time in Dubai before the USA.
I'm a model/actress with an agency in Cincinnati, Ohio.
I'm very energetic and warm and love meeting new people.
I use Canon and only Canon products
I RETOUCH ALL OF MY OWN PHOTOS! This is one of my favorite parts of the process. I ADORE retouching and I use photoshop cs5!
I also design websites, novel covers, business cards, whatever a client might need! I have an impressive resume and work with my fiance who is a graphic designer/programmer for one of the top firms in the state.
I DO TRAVEL and travel quite often. I'm planning on visiting several places this year, so distance is not an issue.
FACEBOOK FAN PAGE:
* Regarding TFP- This is a business to me and not a hobby. The only time I'd do TFP is when I APPROACH you for a portfolio piece, or you're a model with an agency. SOMETIMES I agree to do it if someone is without an agent but meets industry standards. If I do agree, you must book my hair/makeup team (we have reasonable rates) or if you have someone you like to work with already, please email me with details and photos of previous work they've done.
* Regarding NUDES/LINGERIE etc- I'm not interested in shooting models in their underwear or nude in provocative poses. I believe women are beautiful and don't have to do that to themselves to get attention and feel beautiful. That being said, I do think some things can be done tasetful and elegant. Fashion is about pushing boundaries and beauty in a new light, I can sum it up with this 'theres a time and place for everything'.
