My name is Keira Lavelle; and if I were to give a good summary of who I am/what it is that I do... Well I guess I'm a bit of a "binger" of all things arty and expressive! Energised & athletic shape-pulling addict, work-loving model whose art orientated background now takes shape in various creative styling aptitudes, specimen with a habit of acting for the camera to portray thought-provoking visual moments. All of which comes together for the photographer, artist, producer or client to capture for their concept. =]
Hello there [enters serious mode]... My work signifies a very big part of who I am as a person, and now fills the majority of my diary all year round, all over the world. I have been so incredibly fortunate to have been a part of so many positively inspired projects throughout the course of my several years experience - I have learnt a stupendous breadth of knowledge about this innovative industry and also about myself as an artist: sure I enjoy the moments when I am hired to look sassy and stylish; but I also thrive for the moments when the brief is to depict deeper emotion/quirk or a story. My favourite thing about my work is hard to isolate... but probably wins as the opportunity to unite with so many prolific, imaginative (and undoubtedly talented in so many instances!) minds who bring their personal know-how and visuals to the work sets which integrate into that ever-important formula of bountifully harmonious teamwork. It's the bouncing off of fellow creatives, the seeing the image come together as all the components find their place - the subsequent rewarding productivity combined with enjoyment, and the buzz when all is nailed just never diminishes.
I am a strong believer that the first rule of being on a productive long-term roll with your work - to truly enjoy it, and this is something I never cease to be grateful for. The hard graft, the enjoyable working relationships, the addictive enthusiasm: all just fall into place thereafter. The reliably reputable and versatile professional that I've become still treasures each and every shoot/production no matter how big or small; and looks forward with excitement to every future opportunity to mould into that next creative or commercial concept.
