Staff Feature (w/ interview): Model Shannon Grey by Shutter Photography Studios


KJ: Tell us about yourself.

SG: My name is Shannon Grey. I recently moved to Washington from Florida, and I’ve been pursuing a ridiculous number of creative projects ever since. Photography, traditional art, theatre, literature – you name it, I’ve probably had my hands in it. I like to say that I’m a ‘jack of all trades, master of none’. It’s mostly accurate. Mostly.


KJ: How long have you been modeling?

SG: I’ve been modeling since I was 15. I took a short break for a while, but altogether, it’s been close to ten years.


KJ: How do you prepare for shoots?

SG: Most of my preparation for a shoot relies on communicating with my photographer. I want to know as much as I can about what they’re going for, so I can do everything I can to embody that. Whether it be practicing faces in the mirror or hunting down wardrobe, etc, etc.


KJ: What made you want to be a model?

SG: I love art. I did acting and photography, and that kind of meshed into one thing – the modeling. Modeling, for me, is largely a means to help others create.


KJ: What about the modeling industry do you like? What do you dislike?

SG: I like that the industry is varied. I dislike that those variations are not. If you’re a runway model, you have to be this. If you’re plus size, you have to be that. It can be frustrating trying to fit into a box, let alone 12 of them.


KJ: What is your favorite type of shoot?

SG: Anything with a fully-fleshed concept. Coming into a project and seeing the passion that’s been poured into it makes me want to do the best that I possibly can.


KJ: Is there anything else about yourself that you’d like to share?
SG: Meh. Live long and prosper, friends!
