About Melea Rudig

Hello! My name is Melea though I go by Ishah when modeling. A part-time model, I was introduced to modeling by a friend of mine who showed me the ropes and introduced me to my first several photographers. I quickly became very interested in the modeling experience and started networking on my own to build connections and broaden my horizons. I worked with over thirty various photographers within the first three months and have been going strong ever since!

I am not the type to typically enjoy being the center of attention, however I DO love being creative and the reward of seeing an amazing image come together! For me, modeling is a unique, thrilling way for me to creatively express myself as well as the pursuit of a profession.

My goal is to become a full-fledged commercial model though I am just doing this in my spare time for now. I typically spend the rest if my time attending college in Fort Wayne at IPFW, working and taking care of my adorable four year old daughter.

Through patience and experienced, I have learned how to focus my attentions when modeling in order to better direct myself. I always make the conscious effort to consider my positioning from the photographer’s point of view.

Please message me on facebook if you are interested in booking to go over the details (my rate, travel costs, shoot style, etc). Though I would love to consider more trade work, due time constraints and other reasons I am currently focusing most of my attentions on paid offers unless it is for a shoot that may lead to publication or is a photographer offering publication quality level work.

Please feel free to follow me on Instagram and Twitter!
