You don't have to make our mistakes to learn from them. Join me for the (free!) Change Makers Telesummit starting Monday, May 15 to learn from industry pros, and let us teach you what we wish someone had told us earlier in our careers.
My name is Eleanor, and I've been a freelance model since 2010. When I first started I felt totally lost and overwhelmed - I didn't know anyone else in the industry, and trying to figure out everything all by myself was pretty freaking scary.
Over time I started making friends and connections. As access to models who had already experienced what I was going through, it felt like my career was jumpstarted. Whether I was able to talk to them directly, read their advice in the forums or a blog, or watch their YouTube videos, that access to more experienced models gave me insight into the industry that would have taken me years to learn on my own.
That's why I decided to invite several freelance nude models and industry pros to join me for the Change Makers Telesummit. Each model I interview for this event was selected not just for their business savvy, but because they stand out as an industry leader and game changer in some way.
Join us for your chance to learn from a diverse array of models who have achieved success on their own terms.
All eight videos are free through May 30th - sign up now to get access!
Kristy is a recovering alcoholic and ex-fast food worker turned indie model and aspiring filmmaker. Self described as having picked herself up from rock bottom, today she is sober and visits 2-3 cities each month. She founded Femme Photo LTD in 2012, hosting group photo shoots, networking events, and classes and mentoring for aspiring models.
One of the most successful freelance nude models on Patreon, Lillias has been modeling for 7 years, traveling internationally as well as stateside. As a model she has come to love her body and womanly figure and hopes to encourage others to do the same, no matter their figure shape, gender identity, age, weight, or color.
Anastasia Kole is an international art model, photographer, and a photo adventure organizer. She has collaborated with numerous respected artists worldwide, participated in educational workshops, and her work has been published in magazines and exhibited in galleries. Anastasia splits her time between Europe and North America with New York, San Francisco, Milan and Kiev as her primary cities.
Leah Velocity has been modeling full-time since early 2009, and has received many accolades for their individual style. With experience in dance, fire performance, and clothing design, they always bring an exceptional level of creativity and movement to every image. Equipped with artistic adaptability and a decidedly individual look that flows seamlessly from fashion to fine art, Leah's work has been published internationally and continues to push the boundaries we find ourselves enshrined in.
Brennan is a former IT nerd turned full-time model, adventurer, and activist with decades of experiences in everything from commercial to fine art. She's been internationally published with clients you've actually heard of and recognize, and has modeled on 5 continents.
Vaunt is a model who uses her body as her main artistic medium. She has shied away from the title of “Artist” but is a "Creative" with a capital C. Although kind of obsessed with keeping busy - she also designs clothes for performers & musicians and occasionally photographs shiny things - she still finds time to share run a highly successful Patreon account and advocate for model safety.
Breaking industry and gender norms at every turn, Freya's modeling tours are anything but ordinary: since starting her career in 2009 she has toured the East Coast via bike, stumbled into unplannable adventures in the reaches of Asia and Cuba, and is always attempting to inspire others to try everything and be kind but raucous.
