New Model Mayhem Interview July 2021:

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for stopping by!  I am a professional and dynamic model who loves the creative process and exploring many different realms of art, photography, and media.  And I'm now running my own photography events!

I have 15+ years of experience in front of the camera and I specialize in art and glamour nudes, and fashion and commercial work as well.  I love to do a little bit of everything and it keeps my career quite interesting and rewarding.

I am advanced with posing so you can focus on your equipment and getting amazing shots.  You gain so much insight by working with experienced talent.  I will be glad to share my experience and expertise with you during the shoot.  I can help with lighting.  I am very patient and enjoy the teaching aspect as well.  Both of my parents are teachers.

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 have recently acquired higher end lingerie as well, which I offer to people who pay my top dollar 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 several days 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. I am requiring 50% deposits from now on to lock down our shoot.  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, and I'm always willing to try to work something out.

I have a home studio location available in Fort Lauderdale that you may use to shoot me at.  It's a very urban loft feel with floor to ceiling windows and a huge balcony, amazing light! Message me for the link to see photos of my studio. If I know you, you may rent my studio and bring your own models here.

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

See ya in the viewfinder..

Legendary Poses by Arny Freytag - Vol. 1 & 2

This 100 page hardback book of modeling poses was shot by Playboy's legendary photographer Arny Freytag and I which came out in June 2011.  The entire book is all me and the poses are mine.  It was such an amazing honor to be chosen to shoot this book with him, Arny has shot the most Playboy centerfolds in the history of the magazine and worked exclusively for them for 36 years.  They were selling the small books for $100 and the deluxe 2 book set for $500.   I'm sorry to say that they are no longer 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 down and many more from my 9 years experience in front of the camera.  I can now say that I actually did write the book..  And the rest, is history ;]
