How did you get started in modeling? What brought you to it?

Modeling was something I had been thinking about getting into since I was young. I was approached by agencies in high school but didn’t gain parental support till later in my life, so I had to turn them down, but later when a friend of mine told me about a modeling gig she had, I asked if I could come along as well, and so started my career.

How did you get started as an artist? What brought you to it?
I actually started drawing cartoons at age 6, and eventually studied art in college. After a lot of stops and starts, I became more focused on artwork about 10 years ago, specializing in pinups and glamour.

How did you get started in photography? What brought you to it?
Started as a kid. I was introduced to film first at the age of 10. As a kid, seeing your very own black and white TMAX 400 developed in front of you from a blank piece of white paper to something was very cool at the time. Back then, it took the next day to develop your own film not like now, you can snap a photo and it's there.

How did you get started in modeling? What brought you to it?

I was approached by a photographer asking to shoot with him and I said yes. A wonderful decision on my part, I think. I had seen friends of mine starting in modeling and was interested, so I thought that, why not try while I still have the energy, flexibility, body, and mind for it.

How did you get started in photography? What brought you to it?
It is something I've done as long as I can remember. I has an 8mm movie camera and 126 Kodak Instamatic as a kid. Moved into 35mm when in high school - I was mostly shooting landscape and nature back then. Buying a copy of Gowland's Guide to Glamour Photography was definitely an inspiration to what I am doing now. Even told that to Peter in an email.

How did you get started in modeling? What brought you to it?

I used to work as a figure model for college art classes. During that time I saw an ad from a local photographer ( MI member John Poppleton) who was looking for models for fine art photography. I replied to his ad and we went on to create many images over the span of a couple of years.

How did you get started in photography? What brought you to it?
From way back at the beginning, I was a hobbyist with a Pentax K1000 and occasionaly one time use film cameras. First digital was a Kodak C310. Started out professionally in February 2006, taking photos of Roya Hakakian at a lecture and book signing. The job was memorable, even though the pictures weren't.

How did you get started in modeling? What brought you to it?

I’d have to say that it was my friends Curtis and Lisa Wood that got me in front of the camera. I have always been the family photographer, often showing up at events with multiple cameras. However, this meant that as I look back over the years there were very few pictures of me. I met Curt and Lisa six years ago at Mardi Gras and was thrilled that I could go through his photos and there I was. I was amazed by the beautiful images he captured of Lisa, and then I saw a few he took of me. It was so cool to see artistic photos of myself instead of just portrait or candid photos. I really liked being a part of the art.

How did you get started in photography? What brought you to it?
That's a fond memory actually. My favorite aunt was married when I was 8 or 9 and I was so upset that she was moving (crying my eyes out actually) that she gave me her Brownie and told me to take her picture so I would have it. It worked. I quit blubbering.

How did you get started in modeling? What brought you to it?

I started modeling a few years back. It began with me visiting a fashion show at a local clothing store. I pretty much told myself from there that I need to be involved in the modeling world. All the crazy ideas that come to my imagination, it was time to put them in front of the camera. And since then, it's taken off in full force. Working with over 50 photogs, several MUA's, body painters, hairstylists, and models as well. Not to mention directing shoots for other models and photographers and directing shoots of my own. Several shots in my portfolio are from shoots directed/created by yours truly.
