"I'm Marina, a former model turned photographer, creative director, and content influencer from Upstate New York. Modeling started as a side gig at 17, blossoming into an exciting career—from runways at Buffalo & Rochester Fashion Week to magazine covers and commercials for brands like West Herr & Life Storage.

After three years in business marketing post-college, I immersed myself in creativity, organizing shoots, producing videos, and collaborating with local professionals. This journey led to the creation of Model Behavior Buffalo—a photography and creative direction business.

At Model Behavior Buffalo, I'm dedicated to creating a comfortable space for everyone in front of the camera. If you've ever thought, 'I wish I could, but I don't know how to start,' or 'I'm not model material,' I'm here to help you reimagine yourself. If you can dream it, it's meant to happen.

Empowerment, Creativity, and Inclusivity drive my business. I'm here to inspire confidence, infuse creativity into every session, celebrate diversity, provide a personalized experience, encourage pushing boundaries, maintain professionalism, and enhance personal brands through top-notch photography.

Let's capture the magic together!"

"Photography is like poetry only visual. There are so many stories and meanings one picture can portray."
