The sea sees me

These photos were taken in Fuerteventura in Dec by Jeremy Howitt (who wins awards for not being bored of me after so many shoots and wanting to photograph me so much in so many places; it’s a joy!). It was a quick whirlwind of a trip for me, a few days in the heat and dunes – I was actually horribly ill during this trip and struggling to breathe/function, but I don’t think you can tell. I really do consider myself to have had great luck with my modelling in terms of what I’ve experienced. SO grateful for these opportunities! I’m finding it quite a balancing act at the moment while going in multiple directions, but I will always want to come back to this sort of thing and say yes to as many things as I can.

And it’s a great, visceral pleasure for me to pose in and around water – flowing, peaceful and wild.

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 ellarosemuse@live.co.uk if any of the below info piques your interest… Continue reading

Glee & Glycerine: Blossom in Glenrothes

These are from a recent shoot in Scotland with Brian Martin. I always absolutely love working with Brian as he somehow has me cracking up with laughter (maybe it’s the beard…). It’s always lots of fun. The only problem is when you’re trying to fulfill the brief of ‘slightly melancholic’/’serene’/’sad’, the hilarious little comments that spill out from his mouth constantly have to be switched off, otherwise you’re just giggling the whole time (so unprofesh); so I had to ask him to shut up at one point. 🙂 Anyway, we got some lovely pictures, sad and not sad, and I was very pleased to work with him again. I have to admit I was also grateful that this shoot was inside a warm studio as I’d been spending the entire trip freezing outdoors prior to this – as much as I absolutely love getting out and about in nature, Scotland April weather (hailstorms galore) had made my job slightly difficult this time around..!

The ‘glycerine’ reference is due to an idea Brian had had for creating texture on skin, but it also ended up in my tea as an experiment to help my throat, which was slightly sore, and because it seemed like an ingenious idea. I feel I should announce, however (just to save you all time), that this was as terrible an idea as it was a frivolous one. Never put glycerine in your tea – it tastes awful.

Sun, bedazzle me!

A very early start, a hilarious photographer, some incredible waves that we were able to witness crashing and swirling and having a Poseidonic fit of hydro-power… Here are some images taken recently in New South Wales by Tim Bradshaw. I’ll be down under again soon enough thankfully (here there and everywhere); my last trip was far too short and rushed!!

Windrush

Just a quick one, but isn’t this lovely? A new photo sent to me by Brian Connor (who is based in New Zealand) of my friend and fellow model, Ivory Flame, and I. This is one of my favourite locations here in Oxfordshire and I LOVE Brian’s composition and the glowing light. 🙂
