My name is Shaye’ and I am from Washington, DC. I am currently living in Durham, NC
to receive my masters from North Carolina Central University. I am 5’7 and weigh 131.
I first started modeling in high school as a runway model. I didn’t like it as much
so I became only a print model. My first photo-shoot was my freshman year at Saint
Augustine’s University. The photo-shoot was for a back to school party flyer and my
photographer was Rick Crank. From there I worked with Rick and other photographers
name Kenneth and Sonja. During my undergrad years I only did urban modeling. Now I
do a little of both. I am a urban and eye candy model and also nude. Yes I am
willing to travel. I traveled before for a photo-shoot to Atlanta and a couple of
times in Washington, DC. I want to travel more to expand my portfolio and also to
work with different styles of photographers. My goals as a model is to become a
successful published model. I do not model for the fun of it. I would like to make
this a career.
