Model Insider Spotlight - Jessie Murray - MI 6058


How did you get started in modeling? What brought you to it?

I did some modeling as a young child. I am my mother's baby, and I was my father's only, so they were so obsessed with taking as many pictures of me as possible. They even had an artist paint a real big picture of me as a baby. As years went by I started to get more and more interested in modeling. When I was 17 years old my fiance at the time (John Hood) took pictures of me that had gotten me noticed on MM and then after that I never stopped.
I model in my father's memory, and in John's memory. They have both passed away and they are my inspiration. If it was not for them, and my mother, I believe that I would not be where I am at today. Plus all the lovely photographers that I have had the pleasure to shoot with.

Do you consider yourself: Pro, Semi Pro, Hobbyist, Amateur, Something Else?
I consider myself a pro. I have shot with many photographers and I am still progressing. I am not published yet but I plan on getting there. I adore modeling so much that it had went beyond being a hobby for me.


How did you find Model Insider and what do you like best about it?
I found out about Model Insider through my friend/photographer John Bata. I like the fact that you guys have live chat (editor's note, hosted live chats are returning soon), you have spotlights, it seems so much easier and better to use and you guys take real good care of the site and get rid of spammers. I find that all to be extremely excellent.


What is your usual genre? Favorite genre?
I do not really have a certain genre. I personally like them all. They can be so unique. But I must admit that I am loving figure nude more and more. It can be such a beautiful art form.


How do you find photographers to work with?
To be honest I find mine on Facebook and Model Mayhem. I have actually shot with a few photographers from Model Insider as well. I use all three sites to find photographers to work with.


Do you do your own styling and makeup? Do you work with a preferred MUA?
I do my own hair and make up. Where I live it is difficult to find an MUA. I must admit, though, that one photographer, one model, and my mother have messed around with my hair and make up on some shoots.


Where do you see yourself going in the next year, artistically and business wise?
I hope to expand more on my modeling and to hopefully be published by next year. I have worked so hard and I believe that it is about time that others notice me.


Do you shoot both in studio and on location and do you have a preference?
I shoot at both. I like them both personally. You can do amazing shots with either one.


Do you travel?
Yes I do travel, sometimes.


Anything else you'd like to tell the Model Insiders about yourself?
Yes, I am a cardiac patient that is trying to progress and get better. So sometimes I may be at the doctors a lot. I am also currently trying to get back into school, I plan on taking courses in criminal justice. I am also in the process of moving, and once I have moved I am going to try to be an entertainer in the lovely Branson, Missouri.


If you are a paid tier member, would you offer a few words on the value you get from your membership?
Nope not a paid member on this site anymore. I use to be and I loved it so much. It made things way more easier for me and I could upload more images.
