About MeFor adventurous photographers I am a model with a unique difference, I was born with a congenital deformity, underwent an amputation as a baby and wear a prosthetic limb. (Right limb Below knee) I have two legs, one for flat footwear and one for me to rock out in high heels. I have been told I'm photogenic and a pleasure to work with as I have natural presence, sensitivity and depth and am open minded and creative.
I have done tasteful artistic nudity in the past, I wanted to show I had personally reached a level of self-acceptance with my disability and also with my body as a woman. Any nudity I do I must emphasise this is always at my own discretion. It is all dependent on the relationship I have with the photographer and the purpose for which the photos are being taken. I will not be co-erced into anything. I am always open to new ideas but my comfort and the protection of my image is paramount.
I’d love to hear from any SFX technicians/MUAs/Body Painters who are keen to work with an amputee. I’d love to hear any ideas you may have. I am also a lover of anything Vintage; late 1880’s to 1950’s (Edwardian/Victoriana/Jazz Age/Depression era/Swing Era WW2-1950’s) Pinup,Burlesque,Ziegfield follies,Classic Hollywood Films, Jazz Music etc… As evidenced in my portfolio I have already done a few shoots inspired by these and they were a lot of fun for all involved.
I am very capable of doing my own makeup and hair, in fact sometimes I prefer it. LOL but I'm a patient and co-operative model for MUA's. Who doesn't love having their makeup done for them? I find it very relaxing =)
A few ideas I have are
Mermaid; freaky dark not like Disney kind of mermaid wrapped in a lot of seaweed with webbed hands. Anyone capable of creating a tail? (Because I only have the one leg I can imagine a tail would look pretty convincing.) Or anyone who is a photoshop wiz that could later edit a tail in perhaps? I’m open to ideas.
I read in another more experienced models profile a statement that resonated with me. It was about not feeling entirely comfortable signing release forms that waive all my rights. In the past I've signed the release forms willingly because I thought I had to and I inherently trusted the photographers not to use my image in a way that would harm me. I accept and absolutely agree that the photographer has rights too and should be compensated and recognized in a fair way too but as a model I am vulnerable.
So far I have done TF shoots, I am building up a portfolio so am happy to do this for now. Most photographers have been great but one took an entire year to send me my copies and even then they were unedited. I understand people are busy and of course any paid work is priority but particularly in a TF situation it left me wondering what on earth happened to my images? All I ask is that I have a few images of my choosing delivered in a timely manner and these would be for my portfolio only and if I could get a chance to read the release form beforehand then that would be much appreciated.
