About Me

Thanks for 10+ awesome years!  I learned a lot, met some amazing people, and I even have photos to show it!

I am entertaining shoot ideas again and working with old and new friends alike.  Shoot me a message if you're interested!


My Basic Industry Background


-10+ years Professional Modeling Experience including Int'l Print Work
-10+ years Professional Film & TV Experience including Nat'l Commercials
-Interactive Media Experience (Video Games) specifically Motion Capture.
-Representation with both Digital and Traditional Agencies.

Additional Background Info


-Pro Costumer with experience in theme parks, concerts, print, & theater.
-Extensive one-of-a-kind wardrobe featuring $600+ wings, $200+ hats, and numerous handmade costumes and props.
-Some strange places I've posed: on-top of a 5 ft high skylight on a 4 story roof, in cemeteries, and IN a 3 ft deep fountain.
-Working with me often results in tearsheets as I submit to print w/ permission.

Booking


I am available for: Limited TF*, Limited Trade/Tear*, and Paid work.  (That's it.)

Limited TF*
I am only shooting TF* on an "as needed" basis with predominantly photographers I've worked with in the past. 

There's 1 exception to this, "an ideal costume photographer."  In regards to costume shoots, this is what I look for:

        Photographers with portraits that display visible lighting prowess,
        either in studio or on location, with a diverse cast of models.  Bonus
        if these images depict surreal, sci-fi, or fantasy settings.  Example:
        http://www.thezeldaproject.net

Paid Work (Model)
Why should you pay me?
-You need help with lighting, composition, and/or locations.
-You want to work with an *experienced* model/actress.
-You want to use the images for commercial purposes.
-You want to shoot something with me that I don't typically shoot/need.
Note: My rates are reasonable with half-day, whole day, and student rates. 

Trade/Paid (Photog)*
Sorry, rarely trade costume pieces anymore for photos.  I do occasionally pay for shoots with photogs, but this is limited since it's for specific shoots/looks which are often not glamour/costume shoots.

*= Please don't send me your rates without me requesting. 

Availability


If you'd like to know what I'm doing, and when, please go to my Facebook link.

No Friend Collecting!


I'm no longer accepting random FR.  If you send me an FR, please be someone who's either (a) realistically interested in working with me, (b) someone I HAVE worked with, and/or (c) someone I've met in real life.

Please note that if your profile consists of predominantly traditional glamour and nude shots (with no links to other styles of work), I will decline your request unless it's accompanied with an appropriate project explanation.

If I FR you, I'm interested in collaborating!!!

Inquire for full resume, I have over 5 pages of semi/pro credits dating back as far as 1999.
