I’m a highly experienced and previously agency signed model, covering all genres from catwalk,fashion,editorial and promotional work to artistic nude, erotica and fetish..I can work in the most extreme locations and weathers any time of the year, in the filthiest of conditions, or even the occasional studio.. I’m also able to shoot from my apartment on the Thames with fantastic natural light and an outlook of the marina.
My heart really lies in the dark, dirty but incredibly beautiful derelict buildings I’ve loved since a child. Peeling paint, rust and decay bring a peaceful beauty to some amazing architecture from stunning manors to factories and sheds, or my particular favourites asylums and mortuaries.. There is something incredibly haunting and exciting about shooting in these places that creates a real buzz and inspiration for a shoot!
I have a wealth of knowledge of locations around Britain and growing every day with regular research on all the major sites, and good connections in the very underground urbex world. I’m also pretty handy with google maps! I will also be available to travel abroad this Summer, although long haul flights may be too much for a slightly nervous flyer!
I regularly check my local locations, for changes in access, hazards, security and unwanted visitors. These things are never guaranteed but by doing this I can lessen the chances of a failed shoot. Where possible I try to have a plan B, or even a plan C, D and E..
From a safety point of view I know where all the holes, trip hazards, slippery bits and often asbestos is in my regular buildings..It’s not dangerous generally but better to avoid disturbing it or standing on it because you didn’t know it was there!
I’m fearless in getting the perfect shot..
Knowledge and research on the sites mean I can choose the right site to any concept,theme or costume. If I don’t know of one I’ll do my best to find one for you!
I shoot a little myself.. I’m no professional but I have a good knowledge of the best times of day to shoot certain places, and where the best light is in a room or building, saving you time on your shoot. I love to work with natural and available light, which brings the buildings to life.
I pose very freely and react to my surroundings very quickly.I’m also as tough as old boots and extremely experienced in shooting in even the worst conditions.
To sum it up I’m a slightly quirky, characterful model with a slight crazy creative mind, a bucket full of ideas and a deep seated love and knowledge for decaying buildings and cold weather!!!
