A painter discovered me in Florence, Italy, during my first year of college. I was 17 years old and hidden amidst a crowd, when Gabrielle Mossa approached and gestured for me to speak with him. Without knowing my passion for ballet, he suggested to paint me as a dancer. From there on, I fell in love with modeling. The feeling of knowing that I am using my years of training to create a work of art, is rewarding. Everyone's creativity comes together to form one piece. I am now a professional. I have been dancing for 14 years and modeling for 5 years. I have danced and modeled in Japan, Australia, Spain, Italy, Norway, Russia, and around the USA. I speak Russian, English, and Italian. I have a degree in political science, was a delegate at the International Peace Conference in Japan for 2 summers, and studied the piano with professors from Juilliard and abroad.  I adopted my kitty kat,Topa, from an abusive family in Moscow. <3

New Changes at Union 206 - Coming May 2016

Hello Friend of Union 206 Studio,

We would like to share with you some of the changes that will be happening at Union 206 this year.  Union 206 started in a 2,500 square foot space on the second floor with a DIY CYC wall and has grown into an 8,000 square foot space with huge studios and two CYC walls, beautiful finishings and hundreds of active members. We’ve come a long way. As we continue to have a greater impact on the community of photographers, videographers, and artists in the region, the demand for new services and features increases as well.
 

New Booking and Membership System: We are bringing a new website and booking system online! When the new system goes live you will have your own membership login. With the new system you’ll be able to:

- Book online instantly (no more waiting for confirmations).
- Sign up for workshops and events. 
- Send (and receive) gift certificates.
- Manage your account including payment options, contact info, etc.
- Review your studio usage and stockpile credits for later use.
- Access “Member Only” special rewards and discounts.

We are planning to bring the new system online starting Monday, May 2nd. We are doing everything to ensure a smooth transition and appreciate your consideration.
 

Equipment Demos: We have been talking to leaders in the visual arts industry and will have reps from companies including...

- Phase One
- Nikon
- Canon
- Sony
- Tamron

Latest releases from these companies and others will be in the studio so you can shoot with the lens or new camera body you’ve been looking at. Maybe there’s a specialty lens or a camera strap you’ve been on the fence about? For many of these events we’ll have models ready for you to shoot and studios ready for you to use. There’s nothing worse than making an expensive equipment purchase only to find out that the camera body doesn’t “feel” right or the lens is not as sharp as you’d like. During our demo days you can try before you buy in a real world environment, ask questions and get advice from the people in the know.
 

New Featured Models
Many have asked for us to reach out to models that travel from afar. In addition to continuing to feature models from this area we have been talking to models around the country to add more variety to your shoots. Have you been following a model from LA but can’t afford to pay their travel costs? Let us know! Using the leverage of our hundreds of members, we’ll try and find a way to make it worth their while to come to town.
 

New (and more) Workshops
We'll be conducting more workshops over all, we are adding new workshops too! Not only that but we’ll also be hosting many FREE workshops! In the coming year we will be offering:

- Photo Editing
- Shooting Video
- Business and Marketing
- Posing Your model

Workshops and classes for models and MUAs will also be available. If group workshops aren’t your thing, try one of our "One on One” lessons taught by professional photographers.
 

New Furniture & Props
Throughout the year you’ll be seeing quite a bit of new furniture as we expand the selection of props in the studio.
 

New Equipment and Studio Upgrades
We’ve already begun replacing older lights and modifiers. We’ll be adding more continuous lighting for video as well as for photographers that prefer it. Better booms and backdrop stands, smoke machines, etc.

In addition, we’ll continue to upgrade the studios themselves with painted walls, brick surfaces, new cloth, etc.
 

Pricing Changes:
As  looked to implement these upgrades and new services, it was necessary to simplify our pricing. Our goal is and will continue to be to provide the best space possible at the lowest rates possible. Balancing quality with value has always been the guiding principle for us. We will now offer one membership level. The other change is that there will no longer be a weekday and weekend rate. We’ll have one  membership level and one rate for members going forward. We’ve also removed the cost for many of the services we currently charge for.

The new pricing looks like this:
Studio Membership: $19.99
Members Hourly Rate: $45 per hour
Non-Member Rate: $90 per hour
Paper Pulls: FREE
Cloth Backdrops: FREE
Chromakey Backdrop: FREE
Continuous Lights: FREE
Linens for Studio B: FREE
Strobes: FREE
Wireless Triggers: FREE
Smoke Machine: FREE

New pricing will be effective May 2nd along with the new booking system.

We know that many of you have 6 month and 12 month memberships that you’ve paid for in advance. You won’t lose anything and we will honor your membership through the dates you’ve paid up through. Some of you may have free hours available when we do the transition to the new system. Don’t worry, we are going to take care of you too. If you already have a shoot scheduled because you’ve sent in a booking form before we make this change, you will be charged with the old pricing.

We believe Union 206 provides an amazing space filled with amazing artists and continues to be affordable. This is the vision that has guided us for the past 6 years and our commitment to support art will continue. We believe artists make a dramatic impact on the world around us. When we opened the studio to the community in 2010 we set out on a journey to help artists flourish. That journey continues and we invite you to come with us.

We will be posting an FAQ with answers to questions we think you may have on our current website www.union206.com. Feel free to call the studio Monday through Friday from 10AM to 5PM at 202.567.7206 or email us at booking@union206.com if you have questions.

Thanks for being a valued member with us!

I started doing makeup when I was about 11 years old. My mother had left behind old products from when she worked for Lâncome and I decided to experiment with it! Youtube was definitely a great help, and over the years I taught myself how to do makeup. I am now 21, and a successful self-taught MUA and lingerie designer. I specialize in Gothic/Alternative makeup, however I can do any style. I love my line of work and am really passionate about my career path. My favorite part of doing makeup would have to be the blank canvas (model), I get to work with. Doing complete faces and transforming people is really exciting to me. The whole process start to finish is one worth documenting! I would love to add more alternative fashion work to my portfolio, as well as more conceptual shoots, although I am open to anything.

I started modeling as a hobby when I was still in high school.  A few friends and I took photography classes together and I got hooked posing for them.  Professionally, I've been modeling for photography and fine arts classes for over 2 years.  My favorite part of a shoot is becoming a part of the creative process.  There's a lot of learning and enthusiasm with each new artist I work with. I find it invigorating and inspiring.  I'm most interested in posing for artistic nudes and pin up style shoots.  I love all types of art, I enjoy doing yoga regularly, and I'm a huge nerd for comic books!

I got started as a makeup artist while I was still in college for photography.   I took a job at Glamour Shots where I was a photographer and also did makeup and hair.  After working there for a while I started working at Sephora and quickly became an educator/trainer and became completely sucked into the world of makeup. 2016 marks the 10th year that I have been working as a Makeup Artist.  My favorite part of styling is being able to work with different people and different faces every day.  Working with different people allows me always learn and progress in my style of artistry. I would love to add more creative editorial shots to my portfolio, but in truth, I am happy doing makeup no matter what style.

I have been dancing now for over twenty years, and I work full time as a professional contemporary dancer in DC.  It was through dance that I discovered my love for modeling, and I began to model professionally about four years ago.  I really enjoy using my training in dance, yoga, and acrobatics to help photographers create unique and artistic images.  I love it when a photographer says, "can you just keep moving?".  Images that capture motion are always interesting to me, and I would love to add more to my port!

I am a college student working part-time. Modeling has always been an interest of mine but never actually did any modeling until November of 2014. Ever since then, I've been shooting whenever I get the chance  as a way to gain more experience. The amazing part about modeling is that I get to bring to life what the photographer has envisioned in his or her head. It allows me to become another character or persona for a little, and be creative. There's nothing specific that I'd like to add to my port other than more fashion shots; but I am open to other styles/themes. I hope to continue to grow as a model and I look forward to meeting new faces!

I got my start in modeling after posing for a few different photographers in the area who wanted new faces. A few of them kept asking me back and recommended me to their colleagues and the rest is history. Over the last year and a half I have enjoyed learning every step of the way. One of my favorite parts of modeling is being a part of somebody else's creative process. When I'm not in front of the camera, you can find me playing music; it is another one of my passions.  I love collaborating with others, so I'm always open to suggestions for shoot ideas and concepts.

I got started modeling by accident. I'm a concert promoter for live nation entertainment and I was at abc 7 for a segment with one of our acts. There was a boutique segment that followed ours and a model didn't show up. The boutique press representative approached me in the green room to stand in... and then I got picked up by an agency. I have been modeling for 8 months now.

My favorite part of modeling is the way it puts me out of my comfort zone. It is a bit of an adventure when you are someone who is doing this all for the first time. So to wear designer clothes and have people "work on you" is quite the departure.

I would like to add some very andro, gender bending shots to my portfolio. I get called "sir" from time to time and I wear it like a badge of honor. I was an international soccer player, I love vegetable gardening and fishing and I secretly want to be the president.

Hi! My name is Mia.  I am a 19 year old girl from Canada.  I'm new to modelling with a little under a year of experience. I look forward to growing as a model, networking with others, and working with photographers to create crazy fun ideas for shoots!  My goal is to become a published model within the next few years.  The best part about modelling is helping people create their vision through art. I am comfortable working with a variety of genres including nudes!  When I am not modelling I enjoy trying new sports and interacting animals.

I dreamed about being a model watching those runway models on TV when I was a child. With this dream and totally for fun, I modeled for my friends who hosted some local magazines in my city at the end of 2011. After that, I got more chances to model and even dared to show my body. Roughly one or two years in this industry in China, I came to the U.S. to pursue my further study. Being so excited in the country and hoping I can have my model career here, I picked up modeling in Jan. 2015.

Fashion is my favorite genre.  I enjoy posing through fluid movements.  I am interested in adding fetish images to my portfolio. One of my distinguishing marks is my tattoo, feel free to ask me about it during our shoot!

I actually got started in modeling through model mayhem and was lucky enough to meet some great photographers as well as fellow models through there and that really helped get my name out there. I have been modeling for 3 years now doing a variety of work. My favorite part of modeling is probably being able to be a living part of art when collaborating with another person. It's always great when a whole team of people have similar aesthetics and can create something really amazing. I would probably like to add a lot more conceptual work to my portfolio as well as shoots that are heavily creative.

I've been modeling for well over a year now after a photographer reached out to me and asked if he could take a few photos of me. I had always been curious about modeling and a few friends even told me I should give it a shot. The best part is of modeling is being about to express yourself through a different medium. It's  intriguing when different photographers are able to bring out a new side of you. I'd love to add more lifestyle and high fashion looks to my portfolio.  I'm looking forward to collaborating with other photographers and models!

I got started modeling after an acquaintance of mine encouraged me to do a shoot. He had shot for Playboy previously and I was flattered and very grateful for the opportunity to learn everything he could pass on to me. That was in April 2012, so I've been modeling for 3 years now. The thing I love most about modeling is the fact that every shoot is unique with different theme to interpret and so I'm always kept on my toes! I'd like to add more lavish fashion images to my port, utilizing wardrobe, headdresses, and makeup for theatrical effect. I'm a big fan of the Richard Pryde and Amanda Diaz' work . I also love Ophelia Overdoes' over-the-top designs. There are so many talented individuals I could mention but these are the few that i keep coming back to!

I've been doing hair since 1999 and makeup full time since 2006. Paul Mitchell academy trained, I moved to DC almost 3 years ago from Boston. I love pinup, fashion, glamour, and creative projects. I also do creative directing. I currently just aquired my own glam studio in Alexandria and construction should be done in the next couple months. I've been published in print and web dozens of times. I look forward to trying new things and really want to try some dramatic makeup looks to add to my portfolio.

Featured Model - February 2015

Ashley Love

Ethnicity: Caucasian
Height: 5'5"
Weight: 130lbs
Measurements: 34C-25-34
Hair: 1/2pink 1/2purple
Eye Color: Green/Hazel
Nudity: Implied & Artistic Nudes

 

A little over a year and a half ago I fell into my dream job of modeling and took the name ‘Ashley Love.’ Being located in the DC metro area really helped my career blossom.While I love modeling fetish fashion, I pride myself in being versatile enough to pull off clean, commercial looks for companies like PixieKitsune.com and SkinnyBitchApparel.com, and soft, artistic nudes for someone’s personal project.. I dabble in all modeling genres except erotic work. I hope to work on projects that have more of a natural light, editorial feel to them this year. At the end of the day I really value the title of ‘model’ because not only am I able to create but it has allowed me to advocate several positive mindsets such as ‘having a positive body image’ to a much larger audience then what a normal job would have given me.

 "I really enjoy being able to create art and bring people’s visions to life for a living, it’s extremely fulfilling to me."
