"Light and dark play together in wild abandon, throwing their shadows and dancing in their illuminations- encompassing life's beauty and capturing its many wonders in the simple blink of an eye...."
Britta Benedetto- Professional fashion and fitness model, elite Personal Trainer, Sports Nutritionist and Health and Fitness writer
Britta Benedetto - also known as Brit007- The 007 is the bond girl in me
"Britta is a totally fantastic model. If youâre looking for someone that brings a shoot to life with a wide variety of poses and expressions you cant go wrong. She is quite simply the best."
The Fabulous Fashion Photographer, Paul Muir @ Artpunk
**Please note: Currently represented by BOHO models but do take bookings direct from here and via my website www.brittabenedetto.com
Important: I often shoot overseas and may have very limited email access...if you email me please be patient and i will message you back as soon as is possible- thank you
Thank you for popping by!
I am a professional model originally from Perthshire, Scotland.
I have lived most of my life between Scotland, USA and Italy and have travelled the world shooting with some very talented people
I specialise in commercial, editorial, fitness, lifestyle, fashion and beauty modelling, though am highly adaptive to other styles. I am also a trained film/theatre actress, artist and writer, and adore visualisation, scenery and creating. I write regular health and fitness columns for national newspapers and magazines, as well as writing my own books when modelling gives me the time!
-A few things you should know about me:-
-armed with over 9 years modelling experience
-exactly how I look in my photos
-not a diva
-full of infinite poses and expressions
-blessed with an amazing wardrobe of outfits and creative (often crazy) ideas
-love sunshine, beaches, mountains, snow- pretty much anything outdoorsy really
-obsessed with cookies and tea
-in love with creative high fashion images, sexy edgy yet classy Vogue style shots, and adore working with a big creative team- message me if this is what you are good at!
A few more notes....
-I will not no show, I will be on time, and I will stick to schedule
-I hate drama queens and prima donnas
-I am super comfortable with my body and experienced in front of the camera so I won't waste your time
-I am highly efficient with makeup, hair and styling and most of the creations in my portfolio are of my own creative doing
-I adore my work and am always willing to travel for interesting and awesome assignments- the more international the better
-I have a sense of humour so make sure you are ready for it
-I am all natural- clear fresh skin, with no tattoos, no piercings, no implants, no surgery, no cellulite, no bad fake tan and no weird body hair
**Important Shoot specifications:
- No porn, no nudes, no fetish- no exceptions.
-No guns, no fur, no cruelty, no knives- no exceptions.
- No TFP/CD- no exceptions
-When contacting me for bookings please, where possible (makes life easier), include the following info:
-Detailed description of the project
-Date, time, duration
-Whether mua/hair/styling are provided
-Compensation offered (tear sheet, hrly pay and/or flat rate)
-What the materials will be used for
-Copy of the release
-I am willing to travel to your location if all travel expenses and my hourly rates are paid...petrol money is getting more and more expensive, please remember this when you book me from hundreds of miles drive away!
-Cancellation and no show policy-
If you "no show" or "cancel" our shoot less than 24 hours before we shoot then expect an invoice for the full shoot amount- time is money.
A 10 day (ie cancellation within 10 days before the shoot is due to take place) cancellation will incur a 50% charge of shoot fee.
Cancelling last minute is disrespectful and unprofessional and in my many years of modeling, (despite only a few excuses being genuine) sadly, it happens. If I am travelling worldwide or long distance which I do alot and am covering my own expenses, flights, hotels etc can run up bills of thousands of pounds over time...a cancellation for a local model can be costly, but can you imagine how much it costs for me?
On confirmation of a shoot please be aware of this agreement and understand my reasons for this. If you go over on the allocated time slot of which you have booked me, expect to pay the extra hourly rate ..thank you!
-Shoot Timing- please note that it takes time and money to create amazing makeup, hair and styling and this should be taken into consideration on booking me for an allocated time. I always arrive on time and as you request- if you wish me to have no makeup on as you have a makeupartist booked, that is fine- normally i will arrive with minimalist simple makeup and add to it according to your shoot requirements- but this WILL come out of the booked shoot time and not before. So please allow for this when planning your shoot time
-Dating- I'm not here for a date!... I'm not interested in anything more than making great images with amazing creative people!
-I work with amateurs and professionals alike- I welcome enquiries from a wide range of photographers, makeup artists, stylists, designers and agencies- whatever your background or experience- please don't be afraid to ask
I have had the pleasure of modelling for over 8 years now and it has taken me around the world- I believe travelling is the best learning curve that life can offer, and is invaluable to any creative life (and great for collecting postcards from the most random of countries!)
Shoots in the past have taken me to the following places:- South Africa;The Caribbean;USA;Spain;Italy;Belgium;France;Greece;Cyprus;UK;Norway;Sweden;Fuerteventura;Australia;Portugal; Zakynthos;HongKong;NewZealand;
Mexico; Malaysia; Singapore; The Arctic Circle and Lapland; Canada, Mozambique.....and the list goes on.
I am forever grateful to this wonderful career and what it has gifted me and despite all the tears, hard work, rejections, false friends and empty promises, what it has delivered has more than made up for the heartache. Not many can say that they have been fortunate enough to have travelled the world, seen nature in her most beautiful glory, met some of the most inspiring, lovely genuine people, and made for memories that will last a lifetime
Dream up your world, live out your dreams and make the most that this beautiful earth has to offer.
