When I moved to Alamogordo, I feared that there would be no "model market" but then a fellow photographer friend introduced me to the lovely Chelsea. Not only is she a stunning woman, she has a good head on her shoulders and is a genuinely sweet person. I love working with models simply because that is where my true passion for the photographic industry began, when the tables were turned.
There was a time in my life when I was the one in front of the camera, I was mildly successful as a plus size model. It was a lovely era in my life and I was able to learn so much about myself and my confidence, so it brings back wonderful memories but also fuels me to help in any way that I can to help polish that diamond so that she can shine! I have insider information because I have been there and done that, I know what agents want to see. I know what clients are looking for, I know how to accentuate facial features that will make you stand out against another similar model.
This industry is tough, there are a lot of sharks out there ready and willing to take advantage of those that simply don't know better. I don't want to see that happen to anyone else! If you're investing in a photographer, make absolutely certain that the images that you are receiving are YOU. That means, yes they can be enhanced, skin can be smoothed, eyes are shined up like diamonds. But, if you can't walk into the agency and be recognized as the girl in the pictures, they will laugh and tell you to start over and maybe come back in six months. It is important to know when a nip and tuck is appropriate and when it is far too extreme and can actually damage your chances for success. Chelsea has put a great deal of faith in my knowledge and has been an awesome "student" of sorts. She takes direction so well and is always ready and willing to push the limits.
If you or someone you love is interested in pursuing modeling, acting, music or entering pageants I have the ability to help you reach your goals if you are willing to put your trust in me. I offer everything from simple clean head shots to dramatic fashion imagery and full portfolio builds. Alamogordo may be a small town, but with Phoenix, Denver & Dallas in our region there is print and catalog work out there. Albuquerque is booming in the film industry and has a strong music and art influence. The opportunities are there, if you reach out for them.
If you are serious about getting into the performance industry and want to put your best foot forward, give me a call and we can get to the nitty gritty and get you on your way!
