Being the first born and a girl my mom and aunts would dress me up and take hundreds of photos
of me when I was young. I guess you could say that is when I first started doing photoshoots, and where my love for being in front of the camera stems from. About a year ago an experienced model by the name of JESSICA SILVA approached me and asked if I would like to join her agency. At the time I didn’t have a portfolio or the money to build one. That didn’t stop her from still helping me out. About a week after our first encounter she invited me to participate in a beauty pageant she was hosting. I was one of the ten finalists, but didn’t win. That didn’t shake me in any way, it only motivated me to want more. After that pageant I started to take classes on modeling that Jessica was teaching. With her I learned how to walk the runway and other useful tricks of modeling. I participated in another pageant she had, a bikini pageant. Again I made the final ten, but didn’t win. That pageant allowed me to network with magazine editors, photographers, and designers. Now I have had the opportunity to work with amazing local talent, and have a portfolio too. I’m hoping that I will continue to be blessed and make beautiful photos I can be proud of and that others can appreciate as well.

Biography Scottie Spits, also know as Fresco, was born Scott Vera II January 18, in upstate New York. Raised in the Central part of Las Vegas, odds were against the single child from the beginning. His mother, whos upbringing as a child was difficult, held down a 9 to 5, but also hustled and gambled in order to provide for her son. His father, the alcoholic, drug addict, and criminal, failed his family by choosing the streets. Activity like this began in the family when his great grandparents dropped down in Spanish Harlem from the island of Puerto Rico. His great grandfather did anything illegal in order to survive. These ways were passed down to the future generations of the Vera family, and has destroyed many futures, but not little Scotts. Witnessing the violent nature of his blood relatives has helped him more than it has effected him. Being broke was getting old, the physical and mental abuse his mother took from his father was getting harder to watch, and family members dieing or getting sentenced to life in prison gave Scottie a dream to one day be free of the hardship, and become successful. Thank God for Hip Hop, because it was there for him since the beginning. Following in the footsteps of his older cousins, Scottie began B-Boying at the age of 4. Years passed, problems in the family got worse, and at the age of 11, he started writting ryhmes. As he became comfortable with his new found passion, he started displaying his skills at house parties, the school cafeteria, and local talent shows. Then eventually, his certification as a MC came from his first battle in the 9th grade, against a senior who at the time held the crown as number one MC. The battle went no longer than 16 bars a piece, and Scottie took the title. From that point on, the battles continued, recognition from his peers was immense, and Scottie finally had an outlet.
