***********
(01/2013) I am actively shooting again! After a hiatus in which I took care of a sick parent and changed careers, I'm finally in a place where I can seek modeling work again. That being said, I am not likely to schedule more than one shoot per month, so I am not booking full time. Please feel free to email me at ergilley at gmail dot com to check my availability - I check my gmail daily, but sometimes I forget to check my Model Mayhem mail!

I am fine with shooting TFP, but only if the project is suitable and your body of work is of good quality. I will usually charge a nominal fee for a brand new photographer with a lack of experience. I greatly enjoy doing trades for merchandise with clothing, footwear, and accessories designers/vendors as well. I normally prefer to be paid in merchandise, but right now with the economy so bad, I am accepting loaners for product shoots. I have many designer references that can reassure you that your items will be returned in new condition and in a timely fashion. (I am a non-smoker.)

I am a professional musician and I will be starting to get together art and photography to use for my upcoming projects - if you have experience with this, please feel free to contact me. We can work on some art that can get us both noticed!

Let's get one thing out of the way (grin)...I am a mature model. I am indeed 41 like that blurb in the left-hand corner says! However, I have always taken immaculate care of my skin and I like to think that a lifetime of avoiding the sun has worked in my favor. I will not lie about my age (or my measurements/weight!) and then show up and have a photographer feel like I have misrepresented myself. I am happy to send a makeup free headshot if you like. My current userpic was shot just last month (02/2013). I have been shooting for 10 years now and what I bring to the table is experience as well as the ability to do my own styling. I am a professional makeup artist and have worked for Merle Norman, Clinique, Chanel Cosmetics, and M.A.C. I am an active MAC PRO member and I have an enormous makeup kit and I know how to use it! If you cannot provide a stylist, I can provide that service myself (and usually prefer to, though I am certainly open to working with others).

I enjoy participating in the creation of digital and non-digital art and can be found on deviantART under "archel". Right now, I'm more interested in creating art than working in commercial modeling; however, I am always interesting in promoting indie designers in the alternative fashion industry. I have an intense drive to let my creativity out again. Let's make it happen!

Please do not contact me about doing full nudity, because it simply will not happen. I no longer shoot lingerie as I am naturally shy and it is a little stressful, but I do enjoy shooting corsetry a great deal. I do love shooting fashion and even pinup, but please do not contact me about doing bikini/fitness modeling (really? seriously?) or "suicide girl" type shoots that involve standing around half naked looking bored. The internet is absolutely saturated with this type of work and we really don't need more of the same. Let's make some art!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your visit! Feel free to add or tag me if you like. :)
