The New Year and what I want to do with it...

The past few months I haven't done a lot of scheduling like I have been in the past due to several reasons.  I will be picking up the modeling when Spring rolls in. I have some expensive plans in March and April which will mean I have to limit the number of TF* shoots I do in those months.

During that time and thereafter, I'm mostly interested in elaborate projects based on my ideas, a collaboration project, or an idea the photographer would like to have me be a part of. I still have many ideas I want to try out but they involve a lot of props, wardrobe, makeup, etc. I prefer doing something like that with someone I have already worked with because at least I know how we work together. Also I would like to schedule something like that months in advance in order to bring together all the necessary pieces.

As for photographers I have never worked with, I usually try my best to still come up with interesting ideas based on the wardrobe and props I have on hand. I have a huge collection of stuff and can manage a spontaneous idea that will work. However I also like to hear the photographer's creative input. Also if the photographer has a cool location, props, or wardrobe I can definitely develop a solid plan of ideas.

I'm still interested in working with wardrobe stylists and designers, hair stylists and so on for some fun projects. Also I enjoy doing fashion shows and have done plenty in the past.

Currently I'm editing and processing some photos from recent shoots and hope to have them all posted on my sites soon enough. Check out my deviant art page for my extensive portfolio. I also hope to redo my website, develop a separate facebook account, and other online projects I'm currently working on. Finally whenever I have the time, I'm creating wardrobe pieces, accessories, and props which I hope to spend more time doing and make use of in my shoots.

Feel free to contact me on my model mayhem with questions or about setting something up.

Take care,

The New Year: 2010

Hello. Thanks for reading my blog. As many of you probably have noticed, I have not been very active online the past weeks during my winter break. Between catching up with friends, doing a couple of shoots, holiday related activities, and organizing my place, I had little to no time to really spend time on the computer editing or updating any of my sites. 

I still have some more work to do organizing my extensive wardrobe, props, accessories, etc, etc. Its amazing how much stuff I have accumulated during my two years of modeling. A lot of memories of shoots and fun times were remembered.

I did two shoots during my break one with my pal Brian James out in Methuen and one out in Amherst with Lauren Farrington. Brian is always fun to work with. He's very good with makeup and even hair. We did some awesome conceptual ideas. Lauren is a sweetheart. We were able to use a cool location and did a couple of concepts. I don't want to give too much away so look out for the photos!

For this New Year, I hope to continue working with the photographers I have formed nice relationships with and have really added a lot to my portfolio. I also would like to work with new photographers or people I have not yet worked with. I really wish I could travel outside of New England but being a poor grad student that isn't possible. But if someone is willing to pay for it all, I'm down for it of course.

As for scheduling, it will be very limited for the next several months until Spring. I will make a separate blog soon on scheduling, ideas, and so on.

Happy New Years!
