About Me

[quote][b]For my full portfolio, please visit elenasiddal.com
Please read my entire profile before contacting me.[/b] [/quote]

[quote][i]"The role of the artist is exactly the same as the role of the lover. If I love you, I have to make you conscious of the things you don't see.” - James Baldwin[/i][/quote]

[quote] [b]Elena Siddal:[/b] Published and exhibited NYC-based art model interested in all things beautiful and bizarre. Redhead with a theatre and dance background. Incorrigible romantic. Body positive. Feminist. Muse. Nerd. [/quote]

[quote] [b] Accepting paid work. [/b] I'm willing to be flexible with rates, but my ability to take TF work is extremely limited.

I’m looking to create emotionally provocative, imaginative, thoughtful imagery. I want to tell stories and ask questions. I'm drawn to the raw, personal and vulnerable, and I love a challenge.

I shoot nudes, but not pornography. While I'm happy to shoot work that is erotic in tone, I don't shoot explicit erotica. If you have a question about my limits, please ask. No video work. No web work.

I pose for both artists and photographers.

[quote] [b] NYC based, willing to travel![/b]

Able to make frequent trips to Boston, D.C., Philly, Baltimore and surrounding areas if they're accessible by public transit.

It should be noted that I [b]don’t[/b] have a license or a car. I’m freakishly good at navigating public transportation, but please remember that it’s my only option! [/quote]


[quote] E-mail me ([b] elenasangoire at gmail dot com [/b] ) or message me here, and tell me:
-The type of shoot.
-Whether there will be wardrobe/styling provided, and if not, what you need from me.
-Dates/times you are available.
-Where I’m going.
-Type of compensation.
-References! I check them. Very important.[/quote]


[b] My rates are industry standard, and are the same for both clothed and nude shoots. If you're working within a budget, don't hesitate to let me know! I'm happy to try to work with you and see if we can find an arrangement that works for both of us. [/b]

I accept cash, PayPal, Venmo. I do not accept personal checks.

If you must cancel within 48 hours, I will assume you have read my profile, and will hold you to a 50% cancelation fee of the agreed upon rate. If I have purchased travel arrangements to come shoot with you, I will also ask that those be reimbursed.

Please remember when contacting me that this is currently my primary job. Trade is highly selective. Things I'll trade for include: lightly used canon equipment, film, guaranteed publication, mutually beneficial portfolio development.

*Note 2015: I am struggling with a chronic, complicated hip condition which effects my lower back. While for the most part this doesn't affect my ability to work, flare-ups are often unpredictable and can occasionally lead to last minute cancelations. I am 100% honest about this, and if I am having an issue, I will absolutely always get in touch with you as far in advance as possible, let you know the situation, and do my best to find a time to reschedule. I will never flake. Please be aware, though, that this is a painful medical condition over which I have only limited control.


5'5, slender with classical curves. My body comes as is - I love it, am proud of it, and don't condone excessive use of photo shop to alter my natural shape.

-My hair is naturally red and curly. I’ll straighten it for a shoot if asked.
-My ear lobes are pierced and I have a left side tragus piercing.
-One small text tattoo on the line of my left shoulder. It reads 'if that's all there is'. Points if you know the reference. It is easily covered and posed around.
-All make up in my photos was done by me unless otherwise credited.

I have a humble guest room in my Manhattan apartment, which I share with great roommates. I'm happy to host traveling models, situation permitting. Just ask! [/quote]

*I have worked with many, many photographers since I began modeling in 2010, and will happily give references for any of them. I encourage all models to check references before working with someone. REMEMBER, just because someone's work is in my portfolio, that does NOT mean they have my glowing recommendation! Always ask!*
