About Me


I am an Art Model.  Creature.  Shapeshifter.  Movement Artist.  Goofball.

Pleased to meet you!

Check out my more current work on my website at or my Instagram @viviancove_ smile

Local shoots
My primary home base is in Santa Cruz, CA.

I am currently scheduling shoots in Santa Cruz / Monterey / Silicon Valley / Bay Area so long as we create agreements that feel aligned with both of our situations. I am available for outdoor settings and will also consider very spacious studio spaces. I would love to hear whatever concerns or stipulations you may have and figure out what is most conducive to a fun and safe photoshoot!

My secondary home base is in Portland, OR, which makes Seattle, WA my tertiary home base!

I am in both of these areas 2 - 3 times a year.

Out of State shoots
As the vaccine has been rolling out, I have lightened up on my rigidity around traveling. Regardless, here are my safety precautions and measures around traveling that I still stand by:
      1) My tours are spaced out so that I have time in between to track my health and any potential concerns.
      2a) When I travel on plane I do the following: A. Wear a mask at all times. B. Wear a face shield at all times. C. Carry Lysol wipes to disinfect seats and surfaces. D. Apply hand sanitizer immediately after any physical contact with any objects or seating. E. Wash my hands for 20 seconds as soon as I have access to a bathroom.
    2b) I have similar standards around staying in Airbnb's
    3) I always rent a vehicle to avoid public transportation.

Remote shoots
I am shooting remotely with my EOS Canon 77D and EOS Utility tethering software! Check out my page for more details:

Anyway, I am sure you'd like to read more about me as a model smile.

About Me
I am a lively, disciplined, and enthusiastic model whose passion is to make art and to actualize other artistic visions. I aspire to create compelling work with my dance technique, muscular tone, acrobatic capabilities, and infinite curiosity around experimentation. 

Art modeling is my passion and specialty. I do limited glamour or lingerie/boudoir.

I enjoy participating in artistic projects that involve fleeting or agile movement, contorting bodies, body-scapes, striking poses, and experimentation with light. I am interested in examining narrative, specifically the beauty and grotesque complexities in human nature through expressive gestures and portraiture. I also love playing with various props (including fabrics) and posing against natural splendors.

What can I offer?
- Artistic nudes
- Body-scapes
- Dance and acrobatics
- Lingerie / boudoir
- Portraits
- Shadow play
- Nature shots
- Subtle / Sensual
- Posed / Pedestrian
- Vintage / Statue-esque
- Moody or bright
- Fashion / editorial
- Bits and pieces of my life story

What can you expect?
- Easy-going personality
- Playfulness
- Patience
- Adaptiveness
- Cooperation
- Active communication
- Lots of smiles
- Flexibility (literally and figuratively!).

I am open to collaboration or concrete direction.

I am always open to accepting travel opportunities with certain stipulations (tell me where you live and I may make a trip out of it)

I do NOT do:
- Porn or explicit
- Spread legs or labia shots
- Acting
- Bodypaint
- Shibari or restraints

Fun Update (4/21/2021)

"Enjoyed the first of what I hope will be many shoots. Excellent communications and collaboration. In addition to working hard to get the shots during the session, you have to admire the hard-work that goes into the physical form with which she graces the lens. But the single-most appropriate word that comes to mind, the most complimentary of intentions, is "intrepid"--in a semi-isolated location, during the local increases in the pandemic, and against a backdrop of life-experiences that make the vulnerability of her art just that much more impressive. Vivian Cove: Intrepid Model." Read less
