A Little About Me:
I'm a Southampton-based model, who is very often travelling throughout the UK!
I have years of experience and I'm friendly, fun but also industrious. I love my job, I am passionate about it even! And I will strive to do my very best for each picture you take, so you can attain the results you desire! I'm confident working with photographers with all levels of experience (so please don't be shy if you're a newbie!). I am competent creating my own poses but also happy to take direction (or a bit of both!).
As you can see from my work I have an exceptionally versatile look and I am confident modelling many different genres, such as; Fashion, Beauty, Portraiture, Art Nude, Lingerie, Fetish and Glamour...etc...etc... I have a slim and well toned physique. I am strong, flexible and physically fit. I can also pole dance to an intermediate level. I have auburn hair which is naturally wavy and well conditioned. I have very pale skin and a clear complexion. I look very young for my age (18-20 years). I can apply conventional make up to a high standard. My hair has a natural wave to it, but I can style my hair straight, massively curly and a whole myriad of up-dos!
I have a varied wardrobe - and if I do not have what you need - then I'll try to acquire it! I have my ears pierced and I wear a nose ring (all of which can easily be removed without leaving marks). I do not have any tattoos. Allow me to be your blank canvas!
Myself and Glamour:
I do enjoy a good glamour/boudoir/lingerie shoot (or whatever you wish to call it!) but only if it has a certain level of sophistication attached to it. I will not do 'tacky' unimaginative glamour and I will not be belittled by a glamour shoot involving myself blowing kisses towards the camera, squeezing my breasts together in an uninspired flat lighting set up.
Myself and Fetish:
I'm happy to shoot fetish and I have experience working with both rope and metal bondage (www.restrainedelegance.com). However, I will only consider fetish/bondage if it's tasteful. If you do intend to do bondage, I will only work with you if you have lot's of experience in this field and are mindful towards the comfort and safety of the model (so an organised way of working is a must). I also charge slightly more for fetish work. Since this is genre covers such a wide range of subjects, I may not be comfortable with your proposals/experience, so please don't be offended if I decline. I know I look young, but no school girl stuff please!
Drop me a line!:
When contacting me regarding a shoot, please try to include as much information as you can - this makes the whole process all lovely and efficient If at all possible, please include such details as the style of the shoot, the duration of the shoot, location and your availability. The more information I know prior to a shoot i.e styling/outfits/mood, then the more productive it'll be
My rates are very reasonable and are reflective of my experience, skill, commitment and creativity.
Per Hour: £40 (min 2 hours)
I also offer a special discounted rate of £100 for every 3 hours booked.
+ Transport Costs (I have a rail card too, so I travel cheap!)
I will not adjust my rate for nude since I work just as hard during a shoot whether clothed or unclothed. I also believe the human body is beautiful thing and I wouldn't wish to conjure up any negative connotations if I were to increase my rates when posing nude - it just feels wrong!
I may consider TF with exceptional photographers. TF shoots are a very rare occurrence as this is my only income, so please don't be offended if I decline. When approaching me for a possible TF shoot, then please make this clear in your initial message - please don't presume!
I'm very happy to travel! I come equip with a railcard, a free bus pass and a valid passport. Please note that I am unable to drive.
It would be lovely to hear from you!

PLEASE NOTE: I do not do open leg or adult/explicit work.
I have over 250 positive references, many can be found here: https://purpleport.com/portfolio/helenstephens/
Some of my references:
"This was my first experience of shooting to someone else's brief as opposed to collaborating on ideas, so I knew Helen would be perfect for this - her versatility and her amazing ability to internalize and develop ideas with minimal direction. On top of being an amazing model she is also friendly, easy going and an extremely hard worker. I was a little terrified the first time I worked with Helen, but she instantly puts you at ease and poses really naturally - I would recommend Helen to both new and experienced photographers. Thanks Helen, look forward to next time!" Katarina Marie Fotografika
"What an incredible day and shoot with Helen. After organising a 7 Photographer and 7 Model shoot and working for 3 days, she still had more energy than most people when they wake up. Helen is a brilliant model, poses effortlessly, is full of ideas, fun and just all round cool.
Not only did I manage to get some great masquerade mask shots but some great memories too. Now when I think of the Hotel De Vie shoot, I just grin randomly, Helen you are an incredible person that radiates happiness and anyone who gets to work with you is exceptionally lucky.Thank you." First Focus Me
"Helen saved my Saturday at short notice and exceeded my already high expectations. Extremely motivated and highly professional in every way she arrived bang on time with a vast selection of outfits and ideas. She is a total chameleon, her range of looks is remarkable - she can look like a geek one minute, Kylie the next, and a rather convincing dominatrix the next! Whatever you are looking for I am sure Helen can carry it off for you. Great fun to work with and effortlessly produces fabulous images I loved working with her and would do so again in a heartbeat." John VonGeezer
"Helen is stunningly gorgeous, has an amazing personality, a great sense of humour and is incredibly talented! In short, Helen is by far my favourite model. She is a true gem and I feel very honoured to have worked with her not once, but twice now!" Kris Karl
"It's all been said about Helen before, but I'll say it again anyway... She's highly experienced, creative, versatile, hard-working, has an imaginative wardrobe, is very organised and reliable and is one of the loveliest and most unpretentious people you could ever wish to meet. She is a sheer delight to work with in every respect. Highest possible recommendation" Orson Carter
"I had my third shoot with Helen recently at a group shoot in a Hotel. She is just so much fun to work with, gets where I’m trying to go with an image and throws herself into the concept, sometimes literally. We managed to fit in a range of soft and girly, the slightly sensual and the completely bonkers in our allotted slot. Highly recommended, super versatile model, daft as a brush but completely professional too." Zaki
"I booked Helen for a two-day shoot. Not something to be taken lightly! She was great company and a great model - extraordinarily versatile, beautiful and pure in one set and a slightly evil goblin in the next ;-) (her words - the evil goblin bit). A model you can safely say "that's great, you look like an alien in this one" and be met with glee! I got such a good range of shots and really enjoyed myself getting them. If you want a chameleonic model who's in it for the art then look no further." Macman
