I am a published Orange County based alternative/pinup model.
I strive for my work to always be creative, classy, sexy or weird.

FETFAN: How did you get started with modeling and how long have you been in the industry?

Rubylee: I decided to start modeling a little over a year ago, when I was getting some ink done at Musink tattoo convention. The owner of H2Ocean gave me his card cause he loved my tattoos and asked me if Ive ever modeled before. I told him No and ignored the offer. But the next morning when I woke up my picture was in the OC Register for Musink and they put me right next to Bad Religion. I think that's what got me excited and encouraged me to start doing photo shoots.

Even though I haven't been in the industry long. I consider myself to be a success! Ive been fortunate enough to work with some big names (photographers, magazines, designers, hair stylist/MUA's and major clothing companies)

FETFAN: Your choice of genre is definitely out of the box, how did you decide or how did you discover this side of you as a model?

Rubylee: I consider modeling to be a lot like acting... Depending on what I'm shooting I'm always stuck in a role that needs to be played.

FETFAN: Throughout your modeling I'm sure you have been to many different places, which has been your favorite and what kind of project were you working on?

Rubylee: My favorite modeling adventure was at the Abandon Zoo in LA for a body paint shoot. I was painted as a leopard and there were many cages and a huge lions den that was open to the public.
I don't think I could ever top that experience or those shots I got ;)

FETFAN: Is there anyone who has inspired your work?

Rubylee: As far as inspiration I always think of Bettie Page and what she said.
"I just pretend that the camera is my boyfriend"

And for my favorite redhead - Ever since high school Ive had a crush on pinup model Dayna Delux <3 <3 <3

FETFAN: When at a photo shoot, what do you love most about the experience and what do you find challenging as a model?

Rubylee: What's challenging as a model (curvy model) is knowing what looks flattering through the camera lens. How to suck in the gut LOL but still keep a calm relaxed look on your face!
What I love most about the experience is the way I feel when I'm done with a photo shoot and waiting to see the final product!
