Desirable Images: Is your modeling name your actual real name?Halie G. :Yes I use my real name in modeling. I feel you should own who you are in all aspects of your life.D. I. : What city do you live in?H. G. : I live in Denver, Colorado.D. I. : Best and worst thing about living in your city?H. G. : Denver is a great central location with lots of culture and diversity. I love all the different things you can experience without having to travel very far. Although I love Denver, the hustle and bustle, noise and traf c can get tiresome. Id really love to live on a little ranch in the mountains.D. I. : How long have you been modeling?H. G. : Ive been modeling for around 5 years. I have on and off months depending on what life brings.D. I. : What do you look for in a photographer?H. G. : The most important thing when working with a photographer is personality. If the photographer can make the model feel comfortable and is professional, the model is much more likely to work with that photographer again. Skill and creativity are also very important.D. I. : How do you feel about nude photography?H. G. : There are different ways that nudity can be viewed. Personally, I see the human body as a beautiful work of art that should be treated as such. This means that when working on a nude project, all parties involved should be treated with respect, dignity and should have an understanding of the same artistic vision.D. I. : Would you say bodypaint art is the same as nude photography? Why or Why not?H. G. : When it comes to the team collaboration of body painting, nudity is involved and therefore should be treated with respect. The outcome of the photos to the public is usually treated differently because the viewer usually sees the art of the painting.D. I. : Would you ever or have you ever posed nude for a photo project? Why or why not?H. G. : Yes I have posed nude before for various nude projects. In doing this, I have to know upfront what the project is about, what the photographers vision is and the pur-pose behind the project. Ive always brought an escort to all of these shoots as well. Its nice to have an extra pair of hands as well if I need to be touched or adjusted during the shoot.D. I. : Were you comfortable?H. G. : Ive never been uncomfortable posing nude in any of the projects Ive been a part of. The projects have always been professional and maintained classy, respectful artistry.D. I. : Have you ever been bodypainted before? H. G. : Ive been in a few body painting projects including black light, Egyptain, Super Heros, workshops and so on.D. I. : When approached with this project what were you feeling? Any crazy thoughts going through your head?H. G. : This project was exciting and creative. I was happy to be a part of it and spoke with Marlon pryer to the painting and shoot, so I was feeling prepared and motivated. It was an awesome team of professionals and artistic visionaries.D. I. : Are you a geek? Are you a Marvel or DC fan? Whos your favorite character?H. G. : We all have a little Geek in us in our own ways. Those are the qualities that make us unique individuals. I do like Marvel and DC so its hard to pick a favorite. Since this project though, Ive really been down with Jean Gray (Phoenix) because shes obviously a badass!D. I. : What do you do for fun?H. G. : Besides modeling for fun, I really love the outdoors, traveling and trying new things! Taking walks, camping, shing, site seeing, traveling, cycling, and knitting are all things I greatly enjoy, although my favorite things are the simplest. Taking Harley rides with my husband through the beautiful and majestic Rocky Mountains or taking my children to parks to explore all the wonderful things this world has to offer are among my favorites.D. I. : What are your life goals?H. G. : My life goals... Thats a pretty large question with lots of details, so to keep it simple... To travel, adapt to changes, and continually work on bettering myself through art, education and life experiences.D. I. : Would you recommend Desirable Images to others?H. G. : Yes I would recommend Desirable Images to others looking for a professional and creative collaboration with great people!

Desirable Images: Is your modeling name your actual real name?Ivana B:Yes, its my rst and last name
D. I. : What city do you live in?I. B. : BoulderD. I. : Best and worst thing about living in your city?I. B. : Best: seeing the atirons every day, it never gets old Worst: no beaches, I hate being landlockedD. I. : How long have you been modeling?I. B. : About 4 monthsD. I. : What do you look for in a photographer?I. B. : Most of the photographers Ive worked with so far I dont know personally beforehand and we either connected online or through a mutual friend so the biggest thing is how comfortable and safe they make me feel. If I feel any weird vibes via phone, text, or email I wont shoot with that photographer. Usually my deal breaker is whether or not theyll let me bring a friend along to shoot. Some photographers say they dont like to have other people around during a shoot because it can be awkward or it wont be authentic, but ultimately Im the model and Im meeting up with a complete stranger who is most likely going to be a man and Ill probably be the only one naked in the situation so Im going to bring someone to the shoot with me and if you dont like that I wont shoot with you.
D. I. : How do you feel about nude photography?I. B. : People tend to stigmatize nudity especially when it comes to the female body, but I nd nudity to be beautiful and empowering.
D. I. : Would you say bodypaint art is the same as nude photography? Why or Why not?I. B. : No because in bodypaint art the body serves as the canvas but in nude photography the body is the art.D. I. : Would you ever or
