I am an experienced, published, classic model, with a mature and sophisticated look. I have been a yoga practitioner for years and am a classically trained dancer, with a supple body and a natural ability to pose. I am also an experienced life model, member of RAM, the Register of Artist's Models. My look is unique, I am the only model here on MM from the UK with very long, very thick silver/gray hair, a rarity among women in my age group.
I am seeking interesting work, preferably paid, but will consider some high quality TF. I can bring to a shoot an intelligent and imaginative approach, drawing on my performance experience and physicality, great poise and elegance and unusual body flexibility.
I am also a writer and love the arts with a passion.

I am also on the editing team of the award winning online publication Univers d'artistes http://www.universdartistes.com

I bear a resemblance to celebrity model/photographer Yasmina Rossi but no, I am not her, and have not appeared in all the campaigns she has. See for yourself www.yasminarossi.com
Needless to say I am a great admirer and find her inspirational

***Always interested in working with a partner, either gender, for dynamic artistic poses in the fine art nude genre, exploring the shapes that two bodies can make. You would need a dance/yoga/martial arts background for this to be effective.***
A note on TFCD
Please do not approach me for TFCD if you are not experienced. I would have no use for your images in my portfolio. I would be happy to work with people who are inexperienced but it would have to be on a fee basis. Generally, if you approach me you would have to be willing to pay a fee or propose an interesting deal.
With experienced photographers:
TFCD with experienced photographers enhances a model's portfolio. However TFCD is a collaboration. Many photographers understand TFCD as a way of getting a model without paying for her time. They will shoot for hours but will not allow the model to choose any image of her liking and will deliver just a handful of images, some six or seven for example, after taking several hundreds. On a paid shoot there is no obligation to supply images to the model but on a TFCD which is meant to be a collaboration the model should be given images and be allowed to choose.
I will not name names but there are a few photographers out there who are very good and can deliver images of high standard but for whom TFCD is the wrong kind of arrangement as they want to have total control over the finished product, without consulting the model. I would advise models to be very clear about TFCD arrangements to avoid unpleasant surprises afterwards.
