About Me

Check out this video shoot I did with ArcDeco photography :)
https://vimeo.com/353505399

ABOUT ME:
I am a freelance model and have over a decade's worth of experience in various types of modeling: I have done everything from fashion blogging, to window storefront live modeling, to nude figure modeling, to staged bridal portraits, to glamour/editorial concept work, and to commercial video work - you name it. I have been published in Boudoir Culture Magazine, Sheeba Magazine, and Gilded Magazine. Outside of modeling, I am a traveling burlesque performer and producer and go by the name Ivy Sublime, which I prefer to use across most of my work. While I have an expansive portfolio that includes many genres, these days I am almost exclusively a boudoir and alt/fetish model, content producer, and art figure model.

I take on modeling work very, very selectively as I have always tailored my image to my personal branding style and tastes; I supply wardrobe myself, and provide all my own hair and makeup styling. I chose photoshoots and concepts very carefully, and though I do like some collaboration, I will only work on projects that fit the image I am looking to produce.

***I do not do TFP; I am an independent contractor and this is a business I run. I do not work for free in any of my artistic endeavors, modeling is no different. If you want a very detailed explanation of why it's inconsiderate to ask a working model/artist to donate their time, please read this article as it articulates my thoughts very amicably: https://fstoppers.com/business/tfp-and-model-photographers-truth-behind-fake-profession-456479fbclid=IwAR0_Hc_TJgAZu5it6XvhJ4qUD6m4q639GIJjdgT416BoG1o2lIZNWeehbUQ

I understand that all artists want to get paid for their work; me establishing my boundary to you should not be taken as an insult to your years of experience or expertise. On very rare occasions I may consider trade work, but it's truly reserved for projects in which I have a tangible gain (such as a magazine submission, a unique opportunity like underwater shooting, etc.) or with photographers I've had established, multi-year, personal relationships with, who have equal portfolios and experience. Do not let TFP be the first thing you ask, because I may simply ignore your message, especially after I've provided very good reasoning above.

SCHEDULE/BOOKING:

Because I am involved in various creative pursuits, work as an independent contractor across multiple industries, and travel a lot, scheduling times can often mean up to 2-3 months before I am available (so please don't message asking if I'm available on short notice, the answer is going to be that I have booked or reserved my time already.) My availability shifts due to travel and other obligations, but if we plan to work together, there will be a wait time most likely.

As with every project, quotes are dependent upon concept, location, and other factors. This will be negotiated on a case by case basis of course, but as a general estimate and industry standard, expect a rate of at least $125/hr for modeling work. I am willing to consider work on certain projects with budgets, so you can feel free to message me what your requirements or limitations are along with a very detailed description of the project, the hours involved, location, etc.

***Specifically for live figure/nude modeling in art studios with students: a fair standard hourly rate is about $50/hour, 2 hour max, if I'm working freelance. Otherwise, I will consider standard studio rates.

REFERENCES/CONTRACTS/TERMS & CONDITIONS:

I am confident that every photographer I've worked with can vouch that I am reliable, communicative, and easy to work with. Specific references are available upon request. As for what I expect from you in terms of references, I would like the contact information for 1-2 models you've worked with; I do have my own general screening process before taking on work with new photographers (the details of which I do not divulge for safety purposes; no, I'm not asking for your personal banking information!) My booking fee is usually 25% of whatever agreed upon price up front.

I fully expect a model contract form of some sort; even if you have one, I will also bring my own contract for you to sign to cover the basis of various things I've experienced as model. Basically, I expect you to tell me where you intend to publish the photos, and sign an agreement not to write anything in a caption of my image that may include slander, sexual advance, or other questionable text. There's also clauses about consent/touching that is basically common sense.

Limitations: I will not take on work that jeopardizes my safety in any way; that is to say, any activity that could result in trespassing charges, public indecency, or physical harm. You can judge by my portfolio/Instagram what I am comfortable with as far posing in a sexual nature; I am comfortable with my body and can give raw sex appeal but I will not do anything explicitly pornographic (I am also a fetish content producer, but this is not work I collaborate on; I say this to note I definitely do not shame anyone for any type of sex work whatsoever, but this isn't the type of work I'm looking to do so please look elsewhere; I do not make exceptions.) Also, it's worth noting that I generally avoid weather extremes. I've done nudity in freezing weather, it's just plain not fun and totally something we can prevent.

Final note, I don't usually check my messages here a lot, so if you're super serious, my email is [email protected] If you email me, I assume you have read all of my conditions above and are on board so yay!
