About Me


Currently photography is a hobby to me, not a career. I work full time for one of the largest online shoe retailers in the world, and my free time nowadays is few and far between. Needless to say I have quite the shoe collection, lol. When I'm not shooting photos of nature and wildlife I photograph models, actresses, musicians, etc. Having spent 2 years working in an art museum, I try to be "artistic" with my work. I'm open to just about any ideas and themes. I prefer fun, out of the norm ideas though, and the location of the shoot is also very important to me. If you're interested in working with me please feel free to message me on here. At this time I will only shoot in southern California, however, I do travel from time to time.

A little about me: Born and raised in San Diego, BA degree in Economics from SDSU.

★ What I will do ★

- Shoot on location.
- Take between 100 and 250 shots, 50 or so in each outfit.
- Shoot for about 2 hours with 3 or 4 different outfits.
- Will work with models with any experience level.
- Edit 2 to 5 pics per look.
- Compensate you for gas if you have to travel 50 miles or more.
- If you want a MUA or hair stylist I have one that I work with but you               
will be responsible for covering her fees, which are very reasonable.

★ What I won't do ★

- I don't have a studio so I won't be shooting in one.
- I won't ask you to take your top off, if you want to though I'll comply.
- I won't hit on you, if you hit on me though I'll be flattered, but sorry             
I like to keep it professional.
- I won't shoot with minors unless parent is present.

  Sarcasm is just one of my many talents.     

If we have shot together take a moment to fill out this survey, thanks.

Nadia Ruslanova · Model

Hello :) I saw you sent me a friend request to my page. Just wanted to send out a "Hi" back! I don't use MM much anymore (I don't want to play the game with their new policies), so I would rather connect over email please :)

If you'd like to set up a shoot, please email me to [email protected]. I do not schedule shoots outside of email. I would appreciate it if you could link your MM or another portfolio where I can see examples of your past work. Please inclue in your email a description of what you would like to shoot, and preference on location (your studio, hotel, outdoors... etc).

I am based in St. Petersburg, FL but I am able to travel with advance notice. I have a list on my page of cities I am planning on visiting in the upcoming future. If your town isn't on the list, let me know what you'd like to shoot and we can work out a budget and such and I can make my way to you sometime! :)

If you find yourself in Tampa, FL... we have our home set up as a shooting space.

If you would like to follow me, please add me:
