NOTICE: Beginning August 20th, 2016, I will be growing my hair from a complete shave. If you're interested in capturing me with a shaved/razored head, please do so before or in the days following that date. I'll be growing it out for a year.
I do this full-time. (Calendar/booking system coming soon.)
I will travel anywhere my U.S. passport can take me and I'm willing to trade airfare for shooting time provided I can book more than one shoot in the area.
August 30: Los Angeles, CA
September 1-7: Chengdu, China
September 7-14: Bangkok, Thailand
September 14-21: Tokyo, Japan
September 21-24: Los Angeles, San Francisco, CA
September 25-29, 2016:
October 30 - November 3: Los Angeles, San Diego, CA
November 3-10: Hawaii
I do not do trade, though I am willing to negotiate my rate and trade material goods/skills. If you express interest in working with me, I will assume it is an offer for paid work. If you'd like to book me for multiple sessions, I will be more likely to offer you a lower rate after our first collaboration.
I primarily shoot nudes, but I have experience in many different areas. I will not argue if you'd like to shoot me in clothes and hire a team to make me look awesome.
When you contact me, please do so with your budget, concept, and proposed date/time frame. I'm usually pretty flexible about going over time, within reason. Let me know your preferences in keeping track of when I'm working, if it's a concern for you.
Serious inquiries only! If you'd like to set up a shoot, PM me or give me a call at (202)642-9362. Leave a voicemail if you don't reach me, or better yet -- send me a text (letting me know who you are). Friend requests are not an adequate sign that you want to work with me. (I usually ignore them, so if you take it as a sign of disinterest, we're not on the same page. Please reach out!)
What I Can Bring to the Table
-Work with photographers of all skill levels
-Push myself to get you the best possible images
-Abstract, intimate, not-always-pretty subjects
-Androgynous + other gender-bending themes
-Expose myself to varying extreme temperatures
-Every genre listed on my profile
-Anonymous, implied, and general nudes
-My own makeup/styling/wigs
-Shoot in exchange for extravagant costumes/lingerie, or airfare
-Travel basically anywhere my U.S. passport can take me
-Help ($) with studio time if I cancel last-minute and you can't make other arrangements
Tables I Won't Sit At
-Gynecological spotlights/"spreads" or anything resembling Hustler
-Compromising on my boundaries as expressed prior to shooting
-Disrespecting cultural boundaries
-Putting my health/safety at risk (via polluted water or not breaking during winter shoots)
-Expose an unwitting audience to my nude body in an illegal area
Hair - Shaved
Pubes - Present
Acne - has been a factor for me since I started modeling, and my hormonal breakouts are becoming increasingly rare. The scars will be present until they decide to fade, but are easily covered with makeup.
If you've read this far and you'd like me to provide references, you can either check out my Credits or I can give you a list of names of the photographers I enjoy working with on a regular basis. If you need recent snapshots to rest assured you will be shooting someone that looks like their photos, just ask.
