About Me

I am not accepting TFP. My rates are $100/hr for clothed, $125/hr for implied, $150/hr for nude.
I require a 50% booking deposit to secure a day/time in my calendar. I accept Paypal, Cashapp, and Venmo.

A good camera does not make a good photographer. A sexy image does not require nudity.

My name is Risa Fox, I am a Multi Published Professional Model and Photographer from Syracuse, New York. I have been modeling and doing photography, as well as retouching/creative photo editing since 2010. I began modeling as a 15 year old as a way to express the ideas in my head as visual thoughts. I have a hip hop/ballet en pointe/ribbon background in dance which I apply to my modeling to achieve graceful, flexible, and unique poses. I like to take on a new character or concept with each different outfit or location and have been called a shape shifter by many photographers, artists, and friends. If you look at my work as a Visual Artist you will see that I live very vividly. I am most used to shooting on location but have a lot of experience in studio as well. I am no stranger to subjecting myself to the elements to achieve amazing images. Repeatedly photographers have told me that I just "naturally know" how to pose and do what they want from me before they even have to ask. But I love taking direction on shoots as well because this is a collaborative process between both of us to create something amazing. Every shoot is a new opportunity for growth.
I have been shown in multiple galleries for my modeling, photography, and art. Im behind the camera as much as I am in front of it. I know exactly what goes into creating an image, from the lighting, angles, framing, camera specs and editing techniques, to hair, makeup, costume design, and posing. I try to use communication as effectively as possible so that we can bring whatever you are seeing in your head to life.
I am also a licensed cosmetologist/ hair stylist with salon, photoshoot, dance recital, talent and fashion show experience. Hiring a H/MUA is not necessary when working with me but Im always open to having other H/MUA's work on me, I love to experience other artist's work in all their forms. Its why I cant seem to choose a side of the camera to stay on.

Other Things to know about me for photoshoots/collaborations;
I own a large costume and wig collection and have a lot of props and costume's to work with. My hair is mint green and the length is to my waist currently. I would wear extensions for a photo shoot if requested and supplied. I'm 5'1" but very proportionate for my height. If you cant successfully shoot short models maybe you're doing something wrong as a photographer. I've photographed models of all shapes and sizes and easily made them look beautiful. If you stick to the boring "industry standard" you and your portfolio are the ones missing out. I'm not missing out by not working with closed minded people who are incapable of working with a wide variety of people. Open yourself up to new experiences, trust me you'll grow from it.

I am available for travel
I will bring an escort to all shoots, though that doesnt mean they will stay. If you do not respect that we will not work together. My escorts I bring will not become involved in the shoot and often leave as soon as they know I am safe unless you are comfortable with them staying around. If you would like to contact me about a job offer, collaboration, shoot or endorser/promoter offer, please inbox me here or via my email [email protected]
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
