Model Mayhem Portfolio – Gallery
While Hendrix was in her first year of art school (the Alberta College of Art & Design) in 2007, she was asked to help a few fellow students with a photography project. Quickly one photo shoot became two and two became over a hundred withing 2 years. Now Hendrix works as a live figure and photography model as often as she can be, she enjoys the work and feels privileged to have worked with some incredible artists and photographers.
In 2011 she was crowned Miss Alt Calgary, for her Alternative Modeling Work and has since been featured in magazines and galleries all over North America.
This image, first taken by photographer Derek Orr and edited by Carisa Hendrix herself, was featured on a number of secular and atheist websites, blogs and forums. It was initially popularized by this Reddit post by user PeteDarwin. It has been shared on facebook over 10,000 times! I have read all of the comment, yes even the weird ones, and found that lots of folks wanted a wallpaper version. So here she is folks: Right click to Download the Widescreen Wallpaper.
Working for Brian Bitista a in 2011, Hendrix modeled for thsi painting of shiva. Many people who saw it at the downtown Calgary gallery recognised Carisa from the painting, mostly by her unsurual pinky fingers, perfectly rendered in the image.
