♥ I AM RETIRING AT THE END OF JULY 2014 AFTER TEN YEARS IN THE BUSINESS! PLEASE BOOK IN ADVANCE TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT, AS I'M FILLING UP DATES FAST! I'M REDUCING MY RATES TO £30 PER HOUR (Plus travel expenses) SO I CAN CRAM AS MANY SHOOTS IN AS POSSIBLE BEFORE IT'S TIME TO SAY GOODBYE
Please click this link for a recent film by Ollie Bostock starring me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ce4cgr-l … re=g-all-u
* I have a pretty black stencil type tattoo all the way up my right leg, so if this puts you off, don't book!
* I do not work TF anything. Please don't ask.
* I work with professionals and amateurs alike. I'm not an industry snob
I don't work for more than three hours. My minimum booking time is one hour.
* I DO NOT CHARGE HIGHER RATES FOR DIFFERENT LEVELS, THUS WEEDING OUT THE GWC's WHO PAY MORE THE MORE CLOTHING IS REMOVED. IN MY OPINION, I AM WORKING WITH THE SAME ENTHUSIASM, SKILL AND EFFORT WHETHER I'M NAKED OR DRESSED
I do charge £10 for every hour I spend driving to and from the shoot, as this is generally what my car uses up.
I've been in the industry for the past ten years and have an impressive resume as long as my arm. I like to have my fingers in a lot of pies;) With no challenges, I become bored!! I'm currently studying to become a Psychotherapist. I'm a keen writer and published poet, I run my own hair piece business and I'm also a full time Mother.
Please view my profile for my bio, CV & stats etc.
In a nutshell, i work up to implied nude (Full frontal considered if it's classy artistic nude) video & stills; Fetish work is also of great interest to me. Please see below for my work levels.
Please check out my official website www.Michelle-monroe.co.uk

Ok, take a deep breath...this is long; but it's all relevant
I am a well known West Yorkshire based model with a slim, voluptuous, fifties style hourglass figure. I have a confident outgoing personality & can express myself well in front of a photographic or video camera. I have a very versatile look & am notorious for my huge range of facial expressions which enable me to adapt to any situation accordingly & to convey a wide range of emotions. Minimum direction and editing required - guaranteed!
My feminine looks & curvaceous silhouette are always popular for glamour shoots.
I am well educated & witty; pride myself on being up for anything, laugh a minute.
I have undertaken a huge variety of assignments, from television work, acting work, traditional glamour photoshoots through to well publicised shows & personal appearances etc. I studied Theatre Studies at GCSE and A level (Alongside other subjects) so i have a good understanding of stage work etc. I enjoy most styles of modelling & will consider most things, providing it's not work of a pornographic nature. I LOVE being in front of the camera; & well, put a video camera in my face & i come alive! I'm a big chatterbox & have my own, quirky acting style. I can improvise 'til the proverbial cows come home and pull one liners out of the bag like nobody's business.
My favourite style has to be retro cheesecake pin up glamour and fetish work. The Barbie doll, American look is the persona that always brought me consistent work in the early years of my career; so i played up to that stereotype; but I'm actually pretty alternative in 'real' life; so never judge a book by it's cover! I have a MASSIVE collection of real vintage clothing and underwear. When I say massive, you really have no idea!
I have lots of fetish implements (Canes, paddles, restraints, straps, birches etc that make great props for the darker shoots. I'm a VERY experienced fetish Model in most genres.
I'm a big geek and very interested in all things WW2 so naturally enjoy Military pinup style work. I also have a penchant for the Victorian / Edwardian eras, so period style work is of interest to me.
I believe in traditional values such as common courtesy & mutual respect between model & client & i always turn up when booked - on time....EVERY time! (Unless i'm getting eaten by wild dogs, or on my death bed, that is. You get the picture...)
I have a great sense of fun, as well as having a professional, mature approach to my career. I am easy to work with because as well as being consciencious, my 'get up & go' spirit shows in my work.
I have had so much success in the past decade, clocking up a good fan base, meeting many fantastic, interesting people in the industry ; & i believe this to be because of my work ethics. I feel that i put photographers at ease immediately, because i am trustworthy & dependable. I like to think that my reliable attitude makes me stand out from the crowd in this fickle & competitive industry. I always strive to remain down to earth & aim to always retain my Yorkshire characteristics. (including my sense of humour!)
I run my own hairpiece retailing business so have access to my stock in order to change my look in minutes. My natural hair is down to my bra strap. My hair is never the same twice in one week, so feel free to experiment with me. I'm brilliant at doing retro hairstyles (Beehives, Victory rolls, marcel waves etc) & vintage style makeup...just ask.
I travel allover the UK & sometimes internationally. As Modelling is my bread and butter i take my work very seriously.
I work to the following levels -
I'm a natural actress and can work from a script or improvise.
I will consider video work providing it's clothed
I will work with other models for stills and video. I love working with others as well as alone. I will work with male models for fashion & commercial; & female models for all levels that I undertake.
