The Deets:

-Professional freelance model of 8 years. 
-Specializing in fine art nudes, but experienced in and available for a variety of genres as well as live posing sessions for artists.
-I am well versed in short poses and up to 20 minute poses
-Willing to work with professionally minded individuals of all skill levels.
-Minimal piercings. I do now have one very small tattoo on my inner wrist. Easily edited out or covered up.
-I do have a few small scars on both knees from arthroscopic surgeries. Feel free to edit them out or ask me to.
-REALLY LONG hair. Often black or dark brown. Sometimes a little mermaid-y color.
-Skilled in makeup application, as simple or dramatic as you like! Examples in my Portfolio.
-I will travel for the right bookings and will consider TF Airfare for my time

Other interesting tidbits:
-Dancer! (I have training in Modern, jazz, ballet, and hip hop. I'm bendy!)
-Creative multimedia artist.  I draw, paint, sculpt, sew, make wearables (some featured in my portfolio), and I am quite proficient in Photoshop.  If your concept requires any of these skills I am happy to put them to use with some heads up!
-I LOVE animals. If you want to incorporate someone furry, feathery, scaly, or creepy-crawly, I'm totally up for it! I've shot with many critters from rats, snakes, foxes and sharks!
-Adventurous! I will hike, swim, climb, to just about anywhere to get a fantastic image.
- I am occasionally a mermaid! I have my own tail, handmade by me. Currently working on a photogenic weight belt invention for even more underwater posing possibilities!
-My partner is a fellow model and dancer if you need a handsome dude in the shot with me.

"It’s been a real pleasure working with Raven and Antonio over the last couple of years.  Raven is truly an incredible talent and I am always impressed with her amazing skills as a professional model.  Likewise, Antonio's positive support and unobtrusive assistance always adds value before, during, and after shoots; I find him to be a great asset in every way.  I highly recommend this fantastic team!"
-Mike Austin-#2827015


"It was a true pleasure working recently with Black Velvet (Raven Lynette).  In addition to the wonderful figure displayed in her images, she has a great sense for posing, works very well without direction but is also open to taking direction on subtle adjustments.  She did bring an escort along, which is beneficial to my outdoor work, an extra pair of eyes and ears is always welcome and his presence was only positive and not a distraction.  We had a great session and I look forward to working with her again soon."
-Alan H Bruce-#617235

"I've been photographing Raven regularly for more than a year.  We normally do a photoshoot every week. Her boyfriend Antonio, has been to each shoot and is a joy to have around.  Between the three of us we create something different at every shoot.  Raven and Antonio are both creative.  Because Antonio is also a dancer and dance instructor he is willing to offer helpful suggestions if asked.  He is an added benefit at no cost!"
-Stan Trampe

"It was a pleasure to work with Raven and her boy friend Antonio. They work together very well and need no instructions but open to any suggestion and accommodating. Got some great shots and looking forward to many more shoots."
