About Me

I am still preforming a massive overhaul of all my sites and accounts, hopefully to be completed very soon!

Current Booking Availability:
Tuesday: 11am until 4pm
Wednesday: 11am to 9pm
Thursday: 11am until 4pm
Friday: All day
Saturday: All day
Sunday: very limited availability for quick (1-2 hours max) shoots only

Be prepared for my slightly jumbled thought process! The typing below is a slightly exaggerated version of my true self, you may encounter a quieter, shyer girl upon first meeting. Not to be alarmed, this is just a clever ruse until I see that you are also an amazing person like myself! tongue

Need to know: Artist and model since October 2010, recent graduate from American University with a B.A. in Studio Art.
I am easy to work with, can provide wardrobe, most makeup styles and simple hair, and can supply ideas for shooting when needed.
I am experienced with vintage, fashion/editorial, beauty, boudoir/lingerie, art nude, and experimental photography and can also sit for painters/art classes.
Previously an art class model for Northern Virginia Community College - Alexandria Campus, Yellow Barn Studio (Glen Echo), Visarts center, Montgomery College, and Torpedo Factory (Alexandria).
Five years experience in acting courses, two years of formal dance instruction (tap and ballet), four years of choir courses (though mostly self taught and disciplined), and countless years of art courses. Currently a dancer as of June 2016 at Mary's Club and Pirate's Cove.

My Rates: Please be advised my rates will change in the coming months,  exceptions to be made for previous collaborators. At this time, I'm only shooting TF that will improve my portfolio. If I feel your work isn't up to that standard, I will give you my rates.
If I reply to your CC, I am going by what you put as compensation.

Hourly rate varies based on shoot theme/intention/nudity level/etc. Currently, my hourly rate tends to be $75/hour with a two hour minimum. The following package rates include travel time up to 1 hour of transit time total, any further time spent traveling back and forth will be an additional $50/30 minutes
Half Day Rate:(assuming 3-4 hours, excluding travel, and involving art nudes) $250
Full Day Rate:(assuming anywhere between 5-6 hours, excluding travel, and involving art nudes) $500
Any shoot intended to be 7 hours or longer, excluding travel time, will have a rate of $1,000 for the entire shoot.
"Nude in Nature" shoots are primarily paid only, I have plenty of this in my portfolio already.
I charge an extra fee for video, please ask for details.
I currently am not traveling outside of the Portland area unless stated otherwise.

My Limits (oh dear god, not the limits! tongue):
No spread shots, no sacrilegious themes (ie. no slutty nun, just not my cup of tea), and no pornography. Pretty simple!
Please ask before touching the model, I bruise easily. smile

What I Need More of in my Portfolio AKA What I will work TFP for:
Shoots highlighting my skills with pole tricks or burlesque routines.
Steampunk / Day of the Dead / Gothic & EGL / "Shadow Play" / Paint Splatter / Dark "Traveling" Model
Windowsill and Flowers / Dark Fantasy
"GaGa" / "Demented Doll" / "Twisted Editorial" / Pinup, pinup, and more pinup
Fish eye lens shoots / "Grown Up Toddlers and Tiaras" / "Scene/Obscene"
"Alt" Ideas (not mainstream fashion/commercial) "Fast Food Room" (ask for details)

Body Modifications: Tattoos: left inner ankle, inner right wrist, right ribcage covered by my braline, and center back between shoulder blades, all easily coverable if needed. I do not have any piercings at all (I know, so lame!) but I can wear clip on earrings if the shoot calls for it provided I am able to acquire them.

Please Note When Booking: I primarily book here, on the FB page, and through my modeling email, and would like if the majority of the shoot details can be agreed upon within 5-10 messages.
I prefer not to schedule preshoot meetings, but if it is an absolute requirement, I will accomdate but prefer it be done prior to shooting on the same day.

Explanation of Artist Name: It's a high school nickname a friend gave me, as I reminded him of the rare hot pink wildflower. This reflects what makes my art (modeling being an extension of my art), style, and personality unique.
The phonetic pronounciation is nah/deh/sh/ko ya/mat/oh.

Fun Extra Stuff:
I also am available for commissioned work as a visual artist.
My art business, Nadeshiko Yamato Artistry, LLC is a registered business in the states of Virginia and Oregon.
