professional traveling model
I am french from France based in Montreal, Canada. I travel regularly - which means at least once a year - to Toronto, Ottawa [Canada] Paris [France], Sao Paulo [Brazil] & Delhi [India]. Regarding the US, the immigration blocked me a few years back, so I can still travel there but cannot work. Unless you have an official way to make me come to you, if you want to work together you will have to come to Canada.
Experience as a model
I have been modelling as a freelancer since 2007 for photographers and artists (drawers, painters, sculptors, animators). Most of the time I am hired for one-by-one sessions with photographers, but I have also posed for many photography workshops and art schools for students.
I am mostly specialized with movement - artistic nude and - expression. I am very versatile, can take directions or give propositions.
### I coach photographers regularly as much as I collaborate on special projects. I can set your camera, do the lighting, do location scouting and guide you through the creative process = If you are a beginner or simply shy to work by yourself with a model, do not hesitate to hire me I am here for that as well
### I organize photography workshops throughout the year in Montreal mostly. I teach a 9h class on nude photography at University of Montreal, three times a year.
### I am also taking photos, you can find my photography work on Instagram under @MEER_REFLEXION.
### I owe a master degree in anthropology, which is also part of my daily job.
*** I am a full-time model, which means that this is part of my income. This is my job, I am working with professionalism and passion for what I do. I do not work for free, even if "photography is just your hobby". I declare my incomes as a model and pay my taxes and can even give you invoice if you ask for.
*** When I travel I consider trading housing for a photography session.
*** I do TF for a limited number per year, for very special projects that will add something I do not have in my portfolio.
+++ Even though I love working in duo with other models, I do not pose with someone I haven't seen the profile off before.
+++ I am very open to propositions and being spontaneous during the session, although, since I have lots of miles at photography sessions and working with artists if I do not feel comfortable with I will tell you right away.
+++ I do not sign most contracts downloaded from the Internet that are usually intended for commercial photography. If you want to make a contract together, please discuss it together prior to the session.
+++ I do not pose for any style that I will find cliché, bad taste or diminishing. If I know I will not fit with the kind of photography you are doing, even though you propose to pay me my full rates, I will respectfully decline your offer.
