About Me

I still have negatives from my childhood. I work in ink, sculpt a tad, make primitive prints--I certainly didn't pick creativity, it came and got me and I do it because I can't not do it. If I didn't give it away and pursued a living at it I might be successful. To actually produce it is just so someone else can see it and the price for that is compromise. Oh well. This costs me more than I can make selling a few--

I shoot from the hip and miss a lot, I use old equipment and barely pay attention--sort of the Marcel Duchamp of film. Focus, contrast, correct exposure--all negotiable. Not negotiable are composition, content and presentation. Digital images are held to very strict Digital Darkroom technique: nothing is done that can't be done with film in the darkroom. I've been blessed with the eye to pull good shots out of mediocre raw info.

Models are a tool, just as landscape, still life, journalism. I might mix them up and try anything on the fly. A squirt gun is an invaluable tool--forced reaction, y' know. When I do need a model most of the time I'll stop them on the street, and about 10% of the time the lens cap actually comes off. 5% of the time there is screaming. Fashion and glamor don't interest me in the least, but portraits do. Nothing is more boring than a perfect specimen as a subject, but wipe off that makeup and let's muss your hair, maybe get it wet. When we're ready to go blaring music and idle chatter about very joyful or very sad events get you there sometimes...I want to wing it, and causing things to happen (if we've worked together) can bring that golden frame.

I'm easy to work with, insist on fun and pushing rules aside interests me, as does what it is that makes you tick--collaboration is so much better than direction. If we work we'll find common ground. If you knit, I want to shoot that. Same if you're a drunk or a soccer mom. If we get along after a short session or two we'll make you a go-go dancer or do door-to-door portraits: whoever answers gets shot with you...there are endless possibilities!

I WILL NOT: Shoot weddings, children, events-for-hire unless interested, pornography, or random felonies. Well, it depends on the felony....

NOW-----tell me how fucking cool this is.................................................>

Credit Notes

Several juried shows of pen/ink and collage work at various underground Denver galleries in the 80's--Core, Pirate, Spark etc.


1978-present: Documentation of live music and performers, street portraits, three hour setups and 20 minute shoots, however you've always wanted to be seen, I'll do the footwork.
2003-present: Constructions and set-ups, opportunistic journalism, a return to classicism and emulation of old-master surrealism. Surveillance.
2008-future:  Suicide Girl submissions, non-exhibition portraits, website improvements in website images for Adult Service Providers, diligent studio work lasting many hours of lighting, costume and in-camera experiments. A strange impulse to do architecture...

Aim model · Model

Hey! Did you get my message? I’m a full time international model with 10+ years experience & I Aim on being in your area 25th - 29th of September after being in MT & WY.

Happy to shoot from around Fort Collins to Denver the 25th or maybe 26th & 26th - 29th can commute to Loveland or Idaho springs area & maybe some areas East. The 29th I’ll already be heading to Colorado Springs before I head towards Boise City in OK so could shoot that way too.

I’d love to know if you would like to work with me while I am here or if you know anyone who might. This may be the only chance to shoot me in your area. Do you have recommendations on how else to get more work or who to reach out to?

ABOUT ME; I am highly committed, passionate, reliable, open to working with artists of any level of experience & am very experienced in a wide variety of expressive poses. I’ve worked throughout AUS, NZ, UK, EU, Asia, Hawaii, & now in North America with plans to travel through other parts of the world. My many years of experience in the industry with a range of creatives from around the world have earned me features in multiple magazines, art galleries & exhibitions in a variety of countries. I’m open to modelling with other male or female models (locals or traveling) in the studio as well as on location in various conditions & throughout a broad range of styles. My extra talents; I’m a musician, I know how to free dive which is good for underwater shots, can horse ride, go on long hikes & also can crack a stock whip, I practice yoga, & have done basic pole & aerial hoop/silks. IG; @layal.official (non nudes) @aim.model (nude) @aim.backup.model1 (back up nude) Please let me know if you are interested & have a preferred day/time to shoot along with what area you are coming from or have in mind to shoot. Please let me know if you are ok with doing a deposit or if you only pay cash on the day. If you are interested to work with me but not sure when/where/how, please let me know anyway so I know to follow up closer to my arrival. My RATES; for up to art nude $150 per hour for 2hrs or more or $550 for 4hrs or $1000 a day. This covers costs including my meals/drinks, public transportation, outfits I can bring, my own make up & other things to help me be the best I can for you. Surcharges; for 1hr only, light fetish & extra shooters. I do understand people have budgets so I can offer pay off methods where you pay the rate over an agreed time. If Instagram or WhatsApp or even email is better than discussing here, please send me your contact details. Thank you in advance for respecting me. Hope to hear from you soon, keen to see what we can do together, all the best & kindest regards.
