United Kingdom, England, London
My profile is long-ish but organised, and you'll likely find everything you need to know here.
Thanks for viewing!
Creating art with wonderful artists and friends is my passion. I love fashion as well but am always happy to be nude. It's freeing, anywhere and everywhere.
I am a versatile, published professional with credits and references. If you're curious about shooting, ask! Preferably in a private message.
I could write a flowery exposition on why and how I so dearly love our little corner of the world we call art... but I shouldn't have to. I hope that you see my sheer devotion, joy, and bare soul in the photographs. I hope you are moved. I'm not happy if I can't evoke an emotion (any emotion) in those who view my work, and I'll keep striving to create something meaningful. I have at times been called 'muse' by a special few, and I do not use that term lightly.
I do not have the most beautiful face, nor a perfect body. However, I do know how to pose, and work with my assets. Freely or with direction, simple or contorted. I still practice and am always learning. I'm relatively flexible, creative, willing to make a fool of myself in pursuit of a good shot, and can hold still for periods of time.
~I show up on time, prepared, and wearing a great big genuine smile. (I laugh. A lot!) If you have a concept that entails difficult conditions of any sort, I'm your girl. I love the challenge and will work hard to make sure you get what you envisioned... or better. I seek beauty, conventional and otherwise. I seek to inspire.
~I am available for paid assignments with photographers of any level. My rates are a great deal. If you're a newer photographer, I bring my experience to the table and enjoy sharing what I've learned.
~I also do TFD (Time For Dior). (But wouldn't turn down McQueen!) ;)
~If makeup, hair, and/or styling is needed, our results will usually be far better if it is not done by me. I love collaboration with all members of a team.
~I live in a large Victorian house which is a great shoot location and is easily accessible by train from central London.
~My skin is clear and smooth, with a few minor imperfections. I avoid lines from the sun and tight clothing before a shoot.
~My stats are current and accurate.
~I look good in my glasses. I also have contacts. My eyes change colour.
~I have piercings - 1 in each ear, 1 in my navel. All are removable. No tattoos.
~Interested in: Art, of any kind. Some beauty, editorial, fashion (including runway), commercial, lifestyle.
~I absolutely love to travel and will do so anywhere in the world if expenses are covered, which can be the sole form of compensation. I just want to get to work with as many artists as possible!
I'm a London Rollergirl, and my team is the Steam Rollers... no, roller derby isn't the most brilliant idea for a nude model and violinist, but too bad, I'm hooked. On the bright side, it has really tightened my body and increased my strength.
I have a music degree and a media studies concentration from St. Olaf College, and a post-baccalaureate paralegal certificate. I play violin (over 25 years experience) and a few other instruments, and I sing a little. More things I love: nature and animals, The Beatles, Tolkien, Kubrick, David Lynch, and Bill Hicks.. to name a mere few. Oh, and zombies.
