NEW NEW NEW! Just finished editing my 2012 video diary; here it is, hope you enjoy it

Things We Can Shoot (and which you might not know I can do)
Fashion - I’ve spent the last 2 years learning dressmaking, and have a growing collection of dresses and outfits made from vintage designs. The clothes I make are unique, stylish, and they fit perfectly. Depending on time and budget constraints, I can design and make clothing specific to your shoot. (so if you want massive gauze fairy wings or a Viking tunic, I can help you!)
Artistic Nude - I’m an ex-ballet dancer who can dance confidently en pointe, and I can use my classical training to create athletic, fragile, graceful or abstract poses, depending on your taste. I’m as happy looking ugly, distorted or bizarre as I am posing classically.
Combat - I’m trained in Dramatic Combat and gained an Advanced qualification with Special Recommendation. I own a couple of swords which I’m happy to bring to shoots, or I can work with other weapons of your choice to ensure exciting pictures.
Bondage - I’ve spent the last 3 years working regularly as a Western style bondage rigger for RestrainedElegance.com amongst other bondage producers worldwide. I’m happy to tie up other (consenting!) models to your specifications, and am usually happy to be tied up myself. I can also tie myself up and/or teach you how to rig bondage during our shoot.
Video - I trained at ALRA and worked professionally as an actress for 5 years before taking up modelling full-time; I still work semi-regularly in small films and TV. As a result, I’m more than happy to talk straight to camera, learn lines, take presenting work, or improvise on our shoot day. A large number of my bookings involve video, and I love it. I can send you links to my videos on YouTube if you’d like to see them.
Things You Should Know
I work to full frontal nude.
I have no piercings, tattoos or body modifications.
I have my own transport and will arrive at your shoot with no drama attached.
My rates are the same for everyone, irrespective of level of nudity or whether the pictures are for publication. These are;-
£50 per hour (inclusive of travel whenever I can organise it)
£300 per day (based on 7-8 hours, inclusive of travel in most cases)
£1000 per week (people mainly take me up on this for location trips, or if they're not based in the UK)
I prefer to buy from suppliers who give me a clearly displayed inclusive price, so I’ve chosen to trade in the same way. It feels honest, and removes awkward post-shoot haggling about the cost of petrol
Thanks for reading! Please do PM me if you'd like to discuss a shoot with me.
