|Shannon Boothby (born November 9, 1987) is an American alternative model. Born to a Caucasian father and Korean mother, she definitely has a certain look about her. If you want to get technical, she is 57% Asian (there's a lot of debate on exactly where they came from given Korea had a high immigrant rate with many other Asian countries over the years), 18% Welch/Scottish/Irish, 16% Scandinavian, and 9% Eastern European. |
Born in Georgia and raised in South Carolina, she is a model with a drive to succeed in all she does. Standing 5 foot 10 inches (without heels), Shannon never comes up short literally or figuratively! After winning a free Pin-Up photoshoot in January of 2011, Shannon found a love for being in front of a camera and hasn't looked back since.
Featured in numerous popular and international print publications (see full list located on the Printwork/Publications/Ads gallery tab), webzines and blogs, Shannon's unique, modern look, and work ethic are in high demand. She also happens to be a spokesmodel for Hush Anesthetics, H2Ocean Aftercare and also collaborates with clothing companies around the globe.
From Shannon herself:
Hi everyone! *waves* I hope you all are well! I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I'm Shannon, but I also have been called Shanamalam, Shannonononon, Shanoodle, and a plethora of other weird Shannonisms. I wanted to write this portion so you all could gather a little insight on the real me instead of just what you see in images.
I only model part time. I would love to change this but until I manage to get some of my debt under control (and for Obamacare to not be an issue) and find a way to get away from my full time job, I will have to stick to weekends, holiday's, and taking vacations to focus on my modeling. I am hoping to make this my full time job by 2018. Until then, I will continue to create work for my PATREON account where I will share exclusive work and gift rewards for monthly donations. I am officially a full-time model! I am terrified of what is to come but also very thankful and hopeful for the future. PATREON is just a part of what I do, but there are always fun "Behind the Scenes", exclusive photosets, selfies, and videos that you won't see anywhere else.
I'm a tea drinker (earl grey is my favorite but a little chai here and there also makes my tummy happy). I have also recently found a love for coffee but mainly in the fun flavored stuffs from Starbucks (yeah, I know...I'm a basic bitch). I love Harry Potter and I'm definitely proud to say that you're looking at a true Ravenclaw! I also have a soft spot for Disney including, but not limited to, prancing around the house singing every song from most of the princess movies. Totoro is my spirit animal. If you don't know who/what Totoro is, then you are missing out! Google it and that should be enough explanation. Bees are amazing both for their honey and for the growth of so many things we as humans need. You can always call me Shannon Booth-Bee. Otters are my favorite animals!
Um...I also suffer from anxiety/depression and unfortunately am also extremely introverted (I know that some of you have probably seen that one personality test...I'm an INTj, by the way...but my introverted percentage was a 98% when I took that thing). I've managed to get a hold on the anxiety portion after spending some time discussing solutions with my doctor but that doesn't change me being an introvert. An introvert, by definition: one whose personality is characterized by introversion; broadly: a reserved or shy person. Though this definition mentions being shy, this does not even being to skim the depths of introversion. Blatantly, I can be drained of my energy when surrounded by people. Small talk bothers me. I think that's why I enjoy the style of modeling that I do. Though I have done a couple of runway shows and I have done workshops before, I prefer the one on one settings where I can let my creativity fly. I drive a stick shift; 6 speed, to be exact; two of them; Mini Coopers!! I honestly hate automatics. I get distracted too easily so driving a manual keeps me focused. And that is me in a nutshell. :D
I've had people ask me multiple times about whether or not I have a WISH LIST. As a matter of fact, I do! Well, it's not really a "please buy this for me" list. It's actually just a list of stuff that I want and slowly buy for myself when I have the extra cash. All of the things on the list are used for modeling or photography so if you ever check it out, you might see me shoot in some of the things listed!
