About Me


Thanks for stopping by! I am a full-time traveling model who loves the creative process and exploring many different styles of photography. I have a gorgeous home studio in downtown Fort Lauderdale that you may use to book me or your own model at, and I'm now running photography events out of South Florida with other top published models!

I have honed my craft over the last 10+ years in front of the camera and I specialize in art and glamour nudes although I love to dabble in fetish, fashion, and enjoy commercial work as well. I do a little bit of everything and it keeps my career quite interesting and rewarding!

I am quite advanced with posing so you can focus on your equipment and getting amazing shots. You will gain so much insight by working with experienced talent. I am happy to share my experience and expertise with you during the shoot. I can help with lighting. I am very patient and enjoy the collaboration!

You will book more paid work by working with experienced models!

When you work with me you get the whole package. I am excellent at doing my own hair and make-up and have done it in 90% of the images here in my portfolio. My skin is free of blemishes and I always keep a healthy, sun-kissed glow year round. I weight train regularly. Minimal tan lines, if any.

I have a large collection of wardrobe, shoes, and accessories! I now own well over 15 Honey Birdette lingerie sets, which is a high-end and exquisite lingerie brand from Australia. I happily offer my best wardrobe to those who pay my asking rates. I'm very eclectic and go shopping all the time, so what ever style you're going for, I'm sure I have something to make the shoot quite interesting and unique. Please contact me before my trip or our shoot if you have any specific wardrobe requests!

Modeling is a full time job! So is event organizing! Please understand and respect the hard work and organization that goes into coordinating and preparing for my travels and bookings, as well as working around my other schedule. I can't afford last minute cancellations and I am doing shorter trips that are pre-booked in advance. I now require a 50% deposit to reserve a photoshoot. If you need to cancel with less than 3 days notice I expect 100% of the fee.

I'm accepting paid assignments only please, this is how I survive. My rates are reasonable given my experience and credibility, and I'm always willing to try to work something out.

I am very friendly and open-minded, so please say hello!

And please email me for a faster response....  [email protected]

See ya in the viewfinder!

Melissa Jean


I have a gorgeous natural light home studio location available in Fort Lauderdale that I run some of my Meetups out of and you are welcome to shoot me at! It's a very urban penthouse vibe with floor to ceiling windows and a huge wrap around balcony, and amazing light! Message me for the link to see photos of my studio. If we have worked together before, you may rent my studio and bring your own models here for a reasonable fee.


I'm now hosting world-class Meetup events in South Florida where you can network and build your portfolio with top published models in fabulous locations! Out of state photographers welcome! Please join our private group on Meetup if you're interested in attending our exclusive events!

July 2021 - Model Mayhem Interview

January 2020 - I was interviewed about my life and career for the Library Of Congress!  It's a huge honor.  Check out my 17 minute audio interview here

Legendary Poses by Arny Freytag - Vol. 1 & 2

It was such an amazing honor to be chosen to shoot this book with Playboy's legendary photographer, Arny Freytag. Arny has shot the most Playboy centerfolds in the history of the magazine and worked exclusively for them for 36 years. This comprehensive guide to classic glamour poses was being offered for $100 for a miniature version, and $500 for a deluxe 2 book set. Both printed on the highest quality of monochromatic paper and is absolutely gorgeous in person. I'm sorry to say that neither option is no longer available for purchase. If you happened to get one it really is a collector's item now! But the good news is that I have all of these poses in my memory, and now many more from my past 10 years experience in front of the camera.

My cover of Playboy's Nudes - April 2009  and my cover of Playboy France - December 2010

If you'd like a personally signed copy of one of my magazines, I still have a few copies of my Playboy Special Editions!  just send me an email - [email protected]
