Gwendolyn's commitment to physical expression began with twelve years of classical ballet training, priming her for an esteemed career as a globe-trotting, freelance model. She began modeling for photographers eight years ago, and has continually evolved through yoga practice, circus training, and sheer creative discipline. She has posed in Dali's House, as a piece of a human motorcycle, across a NYC billboard, and on a catwalk at LA Fashion Week. Her style is feminine, natural, honest and powerful.
"It is impossible to discuss my modeling career without bringing up Kim Weston. Before our introduction, I had only dipped my toe in the world of art modeling, then the doors were flung wide open, and now I am posing in the core center of the fine art photography world. Each workshop, tutorial, or jet-setting adventure is a unique story crafted by the individuals involved - old friends and new acquaintances drawn together by the legendary name. Kim's photography is about storytelling and the people behind the narrative, and that passion for people is what brings participants back time and again until they too are a part of the Weston family. Each workshop is not only an exploration of the technique, composition, and intention that make a quality photograph, but also a reunion with my dearest partners-in-art. It's like picking up where you left off in a favorite book: the scene is set, the characters are revived, and I dive back into my evolving narrative as a model, as a friend, as a muse, and as a part of the Weston family and legacy."
