Please ask for my rates.
Accepting paid work only with very limited exceptions.
-I require a 20% deposit at booking.
-If you cancel within 24 hrs of a booked shoot, I require a 50% fee.
-If we have confirmed a booking once, do not expect me to follow up. I have a lot of bookings. If I confirmed once, I will be there.

Trade
-I only trade for projects that are mutually beneficial. I am highly selective about what unpaid work I will do. If it is not inspiring and fulfilling for me, I am not interested.
This might mean books, publications, or exhibit pieces. This might mean I have rights to the images for my Patreon, or for my own books, publications, or exhibit pieces.
(*I sincerely do not appreciate being led to believe we are working towards this end, and then never seeing our images).
-When traveling, I might consider partial trade for lodging or flights.
-Sometimes, I might just need a driveway to park my truck in.

Disclaimer
I apologize in advance to the photographers who take offense to this list below, or take this as the defensive or insecure postings of an angry model. This is not the case. I respect each and every one of you, & I urge you to check my references and learn that I am actually very easy going to work with and not uptight in the least bit.. Neither life, nor art, should be taken too seriously.. but this is a profession & I expect to be treated with respect.

ok, here goes..
I am NOT a pornography/fetish model OR a prostitute. Therefore:
-NO, I will not simulate masturbation or sexual activity.
-NO, you cannot shoot explicit shots of my crotch.
-NO, the term "erotic" is not necessarily synonymous with porn, or any of the above mentioned items^^
-NO, I do NOT need your help applying lotion, oil, etc to my nude body.
Wait, there's more..
-NO, I do NOT want a massage.
-NO, I will not give YOU a massage.
-NO, I do not want to be sexually involved with you. Don't proposition me for sex.
-NO, offering me more money or copious amounts of alcohol will not change the status of any of these terms.
Just one more thing, if, after reading this list, you send me an email asking if there is any way I will compromise in spite of this list-- the short answer is, you guessed it, NO. You really don't want the long answer. Trust me.


Please contact me via MM messaging.
thanks for reading :)
