About Me

Update Nov '21
I am returning to booking after a long health related hiatus, but am still taking reasonable Covid precautions as I and other members of my household are at high risk for complications. (Please be vaccinated and willing to mask and/or shoot outside and remain distanced.) I am open to some travel within California, but am not yet flying.

Please note that I have new scars: in July '21 I had another surgery and now have scars around both areolas instead of just my left. These are healing well, but will still be fairly visible in photos. I'm happy for them to be edited out or left as you prefer.

Welcome to my profile! My name is Eleanor, and I'm a freelance model based on the California Central Coast and perfectly situated to join your projects in SLO, Fresno, LA, or the Bay Area.

I started my journey as a freelance nude model in 2011, and since then have helped create art using nearly every medium imaginable. I specialize in facilitating sensual, highly emotive imagery that portrays both strength and vulnerability in still, quiet moments.

I enjoy working with new and experienced artists alike, and work best with those seeking a creative partner and muse. Whether you have a highly conceptualized, specific image in mind, or a vague idea that bears flushing out, it would be my joy to partner with you to cocreate the rich and evocative imagery you've been dreaming of.

My portfolio here is only a taste. Visit my website to see more:
Figure - Sensual - Emotive - Conceptual

I am...
-Dedicated to my art: enthusiastic, creative, and adventurous
-Well versed in a variety of mediums: 35mm, Polaroid, long exposure, large format, wet plate, live posing for classes & individuals, and more
-Happy to recommend good studios, outdoor locations, and potential team members for our shoot (in areas I am familiar with)
-Based in San Luis Obispo County (I have secondary home bases in Santa Rosa, Idyllwild,  and Monterey Park, but am not traveling as much due to Covid)

I have...
-Standard rates, visible here
-No tattoos
-Ear piercings only
-Long, curly auburn hair
-Full leg, armpit, and pubic hair
-A noticeable 4" scar on my sternum
-A faded scar around my left aereola and beneath my left breast

I wear...
-Very little, typically, but I do have some lovely wardrobe available
-A size 8 dress, size 10 jeans, and size 8 shoe (in most brands)
-Basic hair and makeup, and am also happy keeping my face bare (anything fancy will likely require a H/MUA)

-Semi-retired: booking only 2-4 shoots most months
-Available for 1-on-1 work and select workshops
-Able to shoot most weekdays and weekends
-Open to last minute inquiries
-Excited to travel, but not actively touring: message me to discuss possibilities

"It has been my absolute pleasure to work with Eleanor over the course of two days this week, and if I had any reservations about writing this credit, it was only because all of the superlatives have already been used by other photographers here. Eleanor is simply a force of nature; a woman who is highly disciplined, enormously enthusiastic about her craft, and one of the nicest people you will ever meet. One look at her website will confirm all of those things. She has many years of experience as a professional full-time model, a published author and a modeling coach, and her knowledge of the modeling business is apparent from the first time one reaches out to her. Eleanor is kind-hearted, eager to please the photographer and quick with a smile. She makes the photographer’s job much easier and she is a consummate professional. I hope to work with her many times in the future." Read less

"Working with Eleanor is always a pleasure. She is, first and foremost, a professional in every aspect of a shoot. From pre-shoot communication to post-shoot follow-up, and everything in between, she exhibits all the qualities that make one excited to work with her repeatedly. She knows how to move and pose to accentuate her beauty. Eleanor's enthusiasm during a shoot is engaging and passionate. She will be perched on a rock, or balancing in a tree before even being asked if she'd be comfortable doing so. Further, she has an eye for light and composition, and is a truly collaborative partner in the creative process." Read less

"Eleanor posses a no fear attitude that sometimes takes other models years to master. We've shot everything, from erotic, to fashion and in all situations, we were very successful in capturing what we had in mind for our collaboration mainly because of her ability to mold into any situation. Eleanor is not afraid of trying things/crazy situations in attempting to capture what the photographer has in mind. It could be anything from climbing a tree 8 feet off the ground to posing in really cold weather. She'll do it for the shot. The best part is she's fun to get along with...not to mention, she has a soft spot for anything dark chocolate related! " Read less
