I know my bio section here is fairly long, but it’s for a purpose. I answer a LOT of stuff here! So please read it, or at least take a good look at the sections within it before you ask a specific question to me in private.
I love pinup modeling and would love to be in the realm of alt/fetish pinups eventually, although I currently do erotic and artistic nudes mostly, and love doing that. I am currently a grad student living in Washington, D.C., back in the area after being away at my undergrad for a while and finally getting to know the area.
Right now modeling is a hobby for me, and not a job. Though I would love to get more experience, this is not my main goal in life. Eventually that might change, but right now grad school, my husband, and surviving in today's economy are all priorities over modeling. I hope everyone understands this! So if I have to cancel on you with just a week’s notice, or something to that effect, it’s probably because A) I or my husband has to work or B) we can’t currently afford the money to get to the photographer/location. Regardless, I will explain what’s going on, I promise. I am NOT a flaky model that cancels on a whim, I just have real-life things to worry about that are higher on the priority list!
I currently work mostly as an erotic model for a few websites. Currently I model for www.GeekGirlsOnline.com, www.Pixel-Vixens.com (on hiatus), and www.EroticBPM.com - please keep in mind that these are erotica/adult sites, so there is a NSFW notice on them (as with majority of my profile. I am mostly a nude and erotic model)!
I also am an active model in The D20 Girls Project (www.d20girls.com/), which is a group of geeky, gamer girls who also model. D20 Girls models are available for a wide array of positions, should you require their services. Just a few of them are: spokesmodels, voice over actresses, internet spokesmodels, product demonstrator, photo/art models, booth staffing, promotional models , food / beverage promos, street teams, event managers, greeters & hostesses, hospitality suite staffing, awards presenters, in-store demonstrations, cosplay and costume characters, as well as many other event and convention services. If you need any of the above, go check out the website. There are D20 Girls in every state in the US!
I have found a couple photographers to work with for the websites I model for, so I am not looking for much in that regard right now. If you have a specific project you would like to work with me on, please refer to the contact section below. Also know that school and work take a priority over modeling for me, so schedules can be a little annoying.
I was on hiatus from modeling for the better part of this year so far due to being self-conscious about weight gain, but I’m getting back into the swing of things now. Unfortunately, money is tight, so I can’t do a lot of traveling right now. If you can pay me for travel expenses, and it’s a day that I’m not working, however, I will be more than happy to set up a shoot with you!

My primary goal at the moment is to work with photographers that are willing to hand over the copyright of photos to the websites I model for (for website promotions and merchandising) with appropriate credit and link-backs (if you want them), allowing them to keep photos (All allow three, with watermark for photographers and myself) for portfolio use only. Since I am not making any money at the moment, I unfortunately cannot offer photographers anything in compensation at this time. Hopefully as I get more work, this may be a possibility.
I do have one stipulation that seems to make a few photographers unsettled--and please know that I mean no disrespect by the request in any way--but I am very shy and nervous around new people, and if possible, like to have my husband as an escort to shoots. He helps me be a lot more comfortable. He knows not to interfere in any way unless asked (in the past, he's been my hairstylist, poser, and light grip when needed, among other things). **If this request bothers you, please do NOT message me about shoots. This is not something I am flexible with**.
Something that I should have added a while ago, but never thought to do. Yes I am an erotic model, but I do not do what I consider porn. *I will NOT do spread shots, toys, sex, or masturbation.*
I much prefer the allure and enticement of artistic nude, pinup, and erotic styles where there is at least something left up to the imagination.
I do both paid and TF work, depending on what photographers are looking for (if it’s work only for your portfolio, I'll consider TF, otherwise, paid unless there is something that REALLY catches my attention).
For paid work, I have a couple different rates, all of which have a 2-hour minimum. Rates are negotiable if you give a compelling reason as to why they should be otherwise. Please send me a private message either here or via email for negotiations.
* Clothed: $35/hr
* Nude/Implied: $50/hr.
* Fetish: $75/hr.
Also, if there is more than 20 miles worth of travel required, I ask for travel money as well. Confirm the address of our shooting location when requesting a photo shoot so that I can calculate any necessary travel expenses. Again, please remember that this is a hobby for me. If I made more money at this, or if it was my profession, travel expenses would probably not be as much of an issue.
When you send me a message, asking for a shoot please give me some details! Is this a paid offer or a TF request? Also, outlining the following is also very helpful (the more information I know up front, the more likely I am to know if your project is one I am interested in doing or not):
* Your ideas (style, concepts)
* Dates that you're free/plan to do the shoot
* The city/place you plan to shoot
* Arrangements about MUA's/Stylists (if any)
* Arrangements for compensation (cds/prints, money for time/travel, etc.)
If you would like to contact me, my website has all the social networking information you could want if you would like to go that route, though I would prefer either here or via email (Lizzy[at]Lizzy Kaelar[dot]com).
