Some stuff you might like to know about me...
I am a 5'11" model stuck in the body of a 5'4" girl. Please let me out to play!
This is my commercial, fashion, beauty and lingerie profile. I do work up to and including nude for all of these styles - in fact it can be difficult to get me to keep my clothes on! If you would like to book me for artistic nude please see http://www.modelmayhem.com/annamargueritenude
University took over my life last year. I stopped being a terrible student and put a whole load of work in and so unfortunately modelling got pushed to the sideline. I've moved to London now since graduating and am ready to get back into the swing of things. I may be a little rusty but my good old chirpy enthusiasm is most certainly still there!
My grandma has already died at least 10 times now, and I never could be trusted with goldfish so no need to worry about excuses. However, if I do get kidnappped by the Mafia I cannot claim any responsibility for not giving notice of our cancellation.
I like shoots to be fun and I am a giggler, but when it comes down to it I want the results so I'll work my little cotton socks off (if I'm wearing any!) for you too.
I have no body modifications at all. Tattoos look pretty but I'm too much of a fraidy cat to get one. My boobs are my own and I have no piercings other than my ears, and even those I barely ever have in.
I am now only taking on very limited TF* assignments with the right photographers that will really improve my portfolio - don't be offended if I offer you my rates instead. My rates are super reasonable I promise. Just message me to find out.
I am always happy to travel.
If you have commissioned me though, please cover at least some of my travel expenses. Travel can be really cheap if booked in advance, but if not it can cost me a lot, and well, have I mentioned I'm a poor, suffering student? OK I'm not anymore, but I'm desperately trying to convince myself that I still am. I don't want to be a grown up yet. Getting distracted... I will always provide ticket receipts for your records, or just to clutter up your wallet with loose bits of paper you don't really know what are there for.
My home is now London. Scary but exciting and I'm looking forward to meeting all you lovely London photographers.
All the photographers I have listed in my credits are the ones I have worked with - I don't miss anyone out so you can be sure of getting a non-biased reference if you require one.
Some stuff I would like to know....
It always helps to know what the shoot is about. It really helps me prepare and come up with more ideas if you have a specific idea or concept in mind, or at least some idea of what you want to achieve from our shoot.
Time, Date and Location - seems silly to say so but I do need to do these. I am 100% reliable, but I can't get to a shoot if you don't tell me where it is or on what day! You laugh....but it happens!
How long the shoot planned will be. This helps with negotiating rates and also allows me to plan around other shoots.
Let me know how you are looking to compensate me for the shoot - will it be pay (*yes please*)? Images on either CD or prints? Cookies? Just any type of feeding would be good - please feed the starving student!
Also knowing how you are going to use the shots would be good too. I like to know if I'm going to be in an exhibition, I'm vain like that.
A copy of the model release for me to look over
Oh and I will check up on references. It's not you in particular, everyone gets the full on investigation. Please don't be offended by my snooping around.
Now if you've made it this far I hope I haven't been too demanding and that you would like to shoot together. Get in touch!

Here are a few things that photographers have been saying about me. If you want full references before working with me I can put you in touch with photographers so that you can hear it from them not just me!
"Once in a blue moon someone comes along that transcends others and it's certainly the case with Anna. Fluid in her poses and confident in front of the camera I just can't find fault. Simply superb!"
"I have had the pleasure of working with the gorgeous and sophisticated Anna. Faultless communication and a true professional. Thank you Anna"
"The best shoot I have had. Anna is an absolute joy to work with, Very relaxed easy to work with.... A truely stunning model I look forward to our next shoot. Thanks Anna"
"Anna! What a girl. We had waited months to get a special shot done, and last Sunday we managed to get the shot that I wanted and some. She is without doubt one of the models that I could work with in most projects"
"Anna is a delight to work with, sensitive and beautiful"
"Anna is the kind of model every photographer should work with - good comms, punctual, super personality, and a great model. Cannot recommend enough!"
