… & lupins and Christmas trees!
If you’ve been following this blog, you’ve hopefully already seen two blog posts from my wonderful adventure to Iceland with Alex Nason, Bragi Kort and fellow model Lucy Magdalene.
– ‘Black Rocks, Snow & Rushing Water‘
– ‘A Herring Factory, a Piano & a Window‘
And now here’s a little post with images taken of me posing in some of Iceland’s vegetation – flowers & trees. These are all by Bragi Kort.
To warm us all up (I am particularly addressing my fellow northern-hemisphereans, here, and if tomorrow’s snow forecast is anything to go by we need all the help we can get), here are some images taken in the balmier, English countryside with Stuart Johnson, who was a pleasure to model for in these beautiful locations. Some of these images have already seeped into my instagram account, but it’s lovely to show a fuller collection. I felt like I was in the south of France for some of this shoot – so good to look back on now!
By the way, many of the images in this post are unedited – in fact I believe most are straight from camera. I actually think this sort of suits the carefree vibes we ended up doing.
Phew, this post marks the end of a multiple-hour email blitz – I am getting on top of some new plans and now have modelling trips lined up for Venice, Holland, Germany, Barcelona, and potentially a few more… After my little break from modelling around the EU quite so extensively, stretching my ‘admin muscle’ is quite a workout. 🙂 Just in case you haven’t seen this yet, this sign-up form is my new system for contacting people when visiting different parts of the country/world. Do it now before you forget! 🙂
I had a lovely shoot in Far North Queensland recently (as part of Zoefest) with Aspiring Imagery. I’ve worked with Brian a few times before, and this time he was working on a project which required me to pose as little as possible, just existing in the moment. I suppose I went a step further and (as with many of my recent shoots) wore almost no make up. It was fun – nice to have the space and go into a bit of a relaxed state/zone. For me, the ‘stand out’ shots are the infra red images and in the second here, I really look like some kind of weird, ethereal, ghostly alien, which is always pleasing…
Thank you, Brian! 🙂
Hello and happy Friday-before-Christmas! I’m briefly re-enlivening this blog for a few posts.
It feels a bit funny writing on here again after SO very long. Many of you know by now that after 8 years or so, I’m spending most of my time away from the camera these days (due to other burgeoning interests and the current galactic system that dictates that the daily apportionment of time is finite). That said, in my sort-of-absence over the last year or more, I’ve done a lot of modelling for a sculptor and, most recently, I was working on a British film which will feature Hugh Grant (though holding Thor’s hammer remains my most exciting actor-ly claim).
I managed to time a shoot with the wonderful Jeremy Howitt around the latest shoot with The Wool Company, down in Cornwall – beautiful beautiful part of England. Always love these visits! This time Jeremy and I were joined by a stylist (very unusual for us; normally our shoots are a case of Jeremy making me come over all monochrome [our Paris shots perhaps being the ones I think we are most known for], sleek and stylish while I suggest bright and patterned hippie dresses, mostly politely ignored; though we did go to Fuerteventura a couple of weeks ago, and a couple of dresses I bought in Indonesia made a star performance amongst some beautiful nudes on its beaches; images soon!). Anyway, Lady C came with a car full of vintage dresses, all brimming with character and delicate design. I fell a bit in love with this lilac number, in particular; I feel Poldark himself may have approved. (I tell myself; and even if we were using his Wheal Coates tin mine as a mere backdrop.)
Sometimes drizzly, dreary weather gives a moody flounce or two a bit of atmosphere.
Merry, Merry Christmas one and all! 🙂

This feels a bit naughty somehow, but I’m just going to copy and paste a travel notice I’ve just published on a portfolio site. It’s all a bit exciting really – I haven’t posted any local availability for ages. Hope to hear from anyone interested! You can contact me directly via firstname.lastname@example.org if any of the below info piques your interest… Continue reading
Sorry for drifting into a sleepy silence here; I am just so busy at the moment!! I hope those of you on instagram might be connected to me over there, as I am posting images from my shoots into its beautiful square world daily (often multiple times); it seems to be my new thing! 🙂 >>> HERE <<< is my instagram account, if you’d like to click on through.
