WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO PICK UP A CAMERA?
I have always been interested in photography. I started out with the cheap little cameras and told my husband how much I enjoy taking pictures. He then bought me my first DSLR for my birthday and encouraged me to do what I love. Then with a lot of practice and a really amazing support system I turned my hobby into my career.
WHAT PARTICULAR CHALLENGES DO YOU FACE WITH EROTIC PHOTOGRAPHY AS OPPOSED TO OTHER GENRES?
Judgment. People assume that because I capture such provocative images that I live that kind of lifestyle.
DO YOU PREFER TO SHOOT WITH FILM OR DIGITAL?
I learned with digital so right now I prefer digital.
WHAT KIND OF SHOOTS WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK ON IN THE FUTURE?
I have a really provocative horror shoot in the works. I also want to do more gothic pin up shoots.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU HAVE FOR ANYONE JUST STARTING OUT IN THE INDUSTRY?
This may sound cliche but be true to yourself. Don't let the judgment of people alter your visions. Create your art and never stop learning. I got a lot of flack for some of my images, but I didn't let it get to me. For the Models be safe and get references from photographers. Don't let anyone tell you you have to get naked to be successful because that just isn't the case.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I love romance, so I work a lot of weddings and glamour, I also love theater and music. I also Co-own a model management company Chain Link Models.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I have really eclectic music tastes. I listen to everything from Broadway to heavy metal.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I love to sing and be around people so karaoke is a favorite of mine. I also love the to go out and dance (even though I can't really dance).
