First of all, thank you for considering me! 🙂
Yes, I do nude and erotic work, but I’ve learned how important it is to define exactly what that means. Here’s how it all breaks down for me:
Believe it or not, I am capable of shooting with my clothes on. I’d like to do more of that, actually.
I have a growing collection of lingerie, and I want to use it. I’m also up for swimsuit shoots, especially if you want to fly me somewhere warm 😉
I’d like to do more shoots where the focus isn’t just on exposing the private bits. I think it would be fun to come up with some creative ways to keep things censored.
I want to be photographed nude without it being sexual. I’m really fascinated by the different angles and different shapes a body can take on.
I like sexual energy too. I’m definitely up for shoots that are meant to tantalize the audience.
The key part of that last one is sexual energy. I don’t desire to be photographed actually performing sexual acts. I’m ok with pretending to touch myself, maybe some implied masturbation, but I’m not going to have a full-on go at myself in front of your camera. “But you have videos and pictures of that online!” Yes, I know. It’s not like I’m afraid to have that type of content out there. I’m just drawing a line between my modeling and my private life, which I sometimes choose to share. Make sense? Besides, there’s more to being sexual than just getting off.
This point also applies to fetish-based imagery. For example, I DO want to be photographed naked in some pretty rope, but I DON’T want to have a vibrator shoved between my legs while I’m tied up. I’ve learned that I enjoy bondage for what it is on its own–I don’t need it to be sexual. Sexual bondage is something I can get in my personal life, and something I might share images of, but again I am drawing a line between my personal life and my modeling hobby. If we get along well and I like your rigging skills, I will still have ‘an experience’ for you to capture.
Some people have told me I should charge. Some people have told me I should wait until I have more experience. I’ve heard every opinion in between.
I’m not doing this for a profit. Because of that, I will always default to shooting for trade. However, I do appreciate compensation for travel. Airfare or a place to stay at while I’m in your city would be great! If I really want to work with you, I’ll find a way to get together, regardless.
And finally, here’s a random list of locations/genres/themes I’m interested in:
- Rope bondage and suspensions
- Body paint
- Industrial/big city locations
- Run-down, derelict locations
- Closeup body part shots
- Bubble baths
