" Find your niche and what you like, be professional, sometimes be patient and appreciate every memorable experience and great opportunity that comes at you." Lorelei

by Terrell Neasley

I first photographed Lorelei, pronounced, Lor-ee-Li, (long "i") sometime last fall.

I can tell you it was quite an experience to have that opportunity. She instantly became a favorite of mine and she is someone I can shoot til I run out of room on a flash card or my batteries go dead. It is a non-tiring event and you honestly lose track of time very easily.

"My Gorgeous Muse"

I've shot with her out in the Nevada desert from sun up till sun down and that was only because we were running out of water.

Before her, I hadn't met a model that could match me step for step and display the same endurance and stamina that I do behind the camera.

I love this girl and I am sure you will too...

TN : What made you want to get started in modeling for nude art and how did it began for you ?

L : I wanted to get involved in nude art modeling because I have an appreciation for it.

The outcome, the thought process put into it, the messages they portray, and the different emotions that spur from peoples minds who view the images are what I enjoy the most. It all began with a wonderful photographer, Terrell Neasley.

TN : Tell me what it was like for you to be naked for the first time in front of a photographer that you didn't know.

L : It was different, although I did not know Terrell well, I did have a good feeling in my gut that I will feel comfortable working with him after reading his blogs which I find quite intriguing. I actually did not feel like I was in the nude much at all since our whole purpose was to create art.

TN : Do you have a favorite photographer from back in the day ?

L : I like Helmut Newton, he had this almost candid edge to his black & white work.

TN : Are there any other models out there that you would say has been an inspiration for you ?

L : There are many models out there that I consider would be an inspiration for me, even some undiscovered too.

Several art models whose work has inspired me have been introduced to me through Terrell's network and on Model Mayhem such as Iris Dassault, Datura Noir... Every model has their own unique style that sets them apart from each other as an individual.

TN : What's next on the table for you and what else would you like to do ?

L : Expanding my portfolio with all different aspects of the creative spectrum. I like many different styles of photography and would like to collaborate my ideas with those talented ones.

by Terrell Neasley

TN : Give me 3 photographers out there right now who you would drop whatever you are doing to do a shoot with ? AND WHY ?

L : What a question to stump me on ! I have more than 3 photographers I really like shooting with, Terrell being one of them. The reason why is because I have several favorites whose work I not only like, but I feel very comfortable and have such a fun time shooting with them since they are open to my ideas as well.

TN : What lessons have you learned so far that you think other models REALLY need to know ?

L : Some lessons that I've learned are that if modeling is something you want to pursue then just go for it, don't let anyone tell you you can't do something like this.

by Terrell Neasley
"Can you see her ?"

Look for the yes's not to no's, develop great relationships with those in the industry you can find yourself going back to who are there to support you.
Find your niche and what you like, be professional, sometimes be patient and appreciate every memorable experience and great opportunity that comes at you.

TN : How long do you think you'll continue to do this ?

L : I can't make that prediction, but I would like to continue doing this for a while.

TN : You've really gotten into modeling and have taken it very seriously. What has made this become so special for you ?

L: This has become special for me because many times I have the freedom of expression, sometimes almost like I am escaping from reality, sometimes getting to pretend.

"Who's there ?"

TN : So what else should a photog know about you before he or she hires you for a gig ?

L : A photographer should know about my stipulations, my do's and dont's, along with the photographer providing me with full details before I take on the gig. So contact me for details.

I will have my own website up and running before long, so I'll be sure to let you know when its done.
