I am NOT just an 'internet model'. I have been modeling since childhood. My mother and stepfather modeled, and they got me and my brother into it. I can smell BS from a mile away. If I think you are not worth the rate you tell me you are charging, I will not pay you any attention. I am not above TFP work, but I deserve to get paid as well. I will pay for my pictures, if I feel you have something I need in my portfolio.
Yes, I am tall. Yes, I am curvy... But I can walk a runway like nobody's business. Yes, I do nude photos, NOT tasteless photos. I NEED a photographer that edits photos or has an editing team. If this is too much for you, fine. I am not new to modeling and I WILL keep shooting.
I do my own makeup, style my own shoots, and I don't need a manager. I'm running my own show. I don't want to shoot nude for a 20 year old college student that only has experience in 'club/nightlife' photography. I want to work with creative individuals who believe in sexy, scandalous, and seductive.
I will shoot with another woman, I am not afraid of pushing the envelope, and I'm just as comfortable shooting topless/ art nude as I am shooting fashion. I may not be Barbie thin, but I am a real model; i.e, I do what is needed to get THE shot, not what makes me comfortable.
I will shoot nude in cold weather, I will shoot in the snow, rain, and in a cold lake. I've done these things and it is normal industry protocol. I have lost 63 lbs in less than a year, after the birth of my daughter, and I am still losing more. Catch me if you can! I'm starting a fire in the Midwest!
Sound good to you? Let's work!
