About Me

Photographers L-R: Jamila and Stephen Perry

I literally wrote the book on modelling without an agency!

The "Ugly" Girl's Guide to Modelling, my guide to freelance modelling published by New Haven, is now available to order worldwide. Thank you to all the photographers who contributed to this very special book! Order your copy NOW

I welcome booking enquiries from beginners to professionals for both commercial and purely artistic projects- all that matters to me is that you're a nice person ♥ I am constantly travelling the world: UK, Ireland, Western Europe, USA, Southeast Asia, Australia! Let me know where you would like to work with me, and I will try and factor it into my travel plans and tours for 2016.

Modelling is my full-time job, my only job, my passion and my true love, and has been for my entire adult working life. I'm not going anywhere. You are in safe hands.

Modelling is my sole source of income, which I rely on to pay all my bills, including my mortgage, so if I screw up, I lose my house. Please rest assured that I don't no-show, because I can't no-show, even when booked months in advance, and even when paid in advance, as losing my reputation = losing my income = losing my home.

As a full-time model, I deeply appreciate the time and money photographers invest in me and arrive at shoots with my hair and makeup as close to finished as humanly possible, change quickly between sets, and understand that sometimes it's better to flow through a selection of poses that make the best use of the light and camera angle as well as taking time to slow down and repeat certain poses for more technically demanding shots. I am extremely patient/ relaxed and more than happy to take as long as it takes to get the shot right, so please don't ever feel under pressure when working with me, even if it's your first ever model shoot ♥

I do not reply to enquiries regarding test shoots, TFP, part-/poorly paid assignments or adult work, as I do not accept them and I don't have time (sorry!). I love to treat everyone I work with respectfully, and hope you do too.

Rates vary slightly from country to country, but the longer the booking, the lower the hourly rate, from two-hour right up to five-day bookings. You will need to pay a non-refundable deposit to secure your booking if I have to get on a plane and fly to another continent to get to the shoot (it's not much fun for me to pay $1000 for a flight and then have my shoot cancelled after I land), so please make sure that you can definitely do the date we've agreed. I don't give discounts for clothed or non-commercial shoots. I work just as hard at them and usually do all the wardrobe sourcing and styling myself smile

"Why should I hire you when I can get a newbie model for a fiver and a bag of chips?"

I'm glad you asked wink

Well, my rates certainly aren't the cheapest going- I mean, the cheapest going you'll get is free, probably! But you will probably find that the time, effort and expense you invest in a shoot with a cheap or free model isn't reflected in the results (or even in the likelihood that they'll show up). Try speaking to some photographers who hire professional models and asking they why they do it. It's not because they aren't aware of the $50ph "models" wink

As well as modelling for lots of beginners and hobbyists, I have also worked with some of the world's top fashion, wedding, fetish and art nude photographers, and so can bring some of their secrets and all that I've learned about posing myself to our shoot, meaning you get more bang for your buck smile

"I'll hire a pro model when my portfolio is good enough."

I do strongly recommend new and amateur photographers especially hire professional models to quickly improve the quality of their work and learn all about posing and expression- this "I'll hire a pro model when my portfolio is good enough" thing is really putting the cart before the horse. Your portfolio will get better WHEN you start hiring professional models and the longer you leave it, the longer you'll plateau. I can almost guarantee that you will get significantly, dramatically better results from say, shooting with a professional model once a month than a £50 model every week smile

"You would say that- you're a professional model yourself, and you want the work!"

Well, I am a professional model, and I do want to work of course, but you can put what I'm saying to the test with any experienced, professional model- it doesn't have to be me wink I'm sure you would find a shoot with someone like Joceline or Ivory Flame equally rewarding.

As for me, I have very clear skin, a slender hourglass figure (35-25-35) and immaculate grooming with professional products, which will save you hours in Photoshop; can do the detailed styling crucial to capturing the look in a classy and convincing way; and can pose myself appropriately to the theme, adapting for the lighting, outfit and camera angle, leaving you to concentrate fully on the technical side of capturing shots.

Congratulations if you actually read all that wink and I look forward to hearing from you. I'm not this arrogant in real life, I promise. I just wanted to really explain that what I really love is investing in the the creation of great images, with anyone who feels the same way.

Thanks for looking!
