About Me

look y'all I'm so grateful for all your interest in working with me, but if you're looking to get paid or shoot trade content I'm not your dude! I'm a full-time working artist, so I hope you have a great visit to Philly but please! save both our time and only message if you're hiring me or want restaurant recommendations.

The fastest way to contact me is through my website.

n/a, book me in Philadelphia!

I'm Cassie (she/they). I'm a Model Mayhem OG! I'm a queer editorial concept/intimate boudoir photographer. I specialize in bold colors and dark themes, and can make beautiful art with models and everyday people alike. Hire me to take your picture! I don't shoot TFP but if you're on a budget I offer flexible payment plans. Sessions start at $595.

I'm awesome and fun and I might serenade you with hair metal while we shoot. I like bright colors and dark themes and pretty people queering gender. I'm body-positive, queer, trans, and non-binary friendly–bring your truest self over and let's do something fun!

I'm vaccinated and love to travel so if you're not near Philadelphia I'll happily come to you.

I am available for hire as a photographer, assistant, or retoucher.

You should especially hire me if:
-you have rainbow hair and cool tattoos and piercings
-you are a hair, makeup, or wardrobe stylist, or a designer of awesome alternative fashions and latex and fancy shoes
-you are a girl with a shaved head
-you are a hottie burlesque (or BOYlesque!) performer
-you are wild and bendy and part of some sort of circus act
-you are Betty White or Nick Cave or Tom Waits
-you don't care how dirty, wet, or covered in slime and bugs and cupcake frosting you get
-you want to talk about eighties horror movies

"Synthetic Shadows is photographer I am a bit biased about as since we’ve began working together we’ve become friends. From the first time I worked with her, we clicked. She is located in PA, but it is an easy drive and you don't have to worry about heavy Philly traffic. She is professional, fun, relaxed and just an all-around good person. Synthetic enjoys shooting abstract concepts, anything that the model will get dirty/messy/sticky etc. Anything that is different appeals to her. Turnaround time for images is really good, and the images you get back are fantastic. Any time working with her has proven to be a fun time all around, with amazing results." Read less
