Thanks for visiting my portfolio
I’m easy going, adaptable & versatile, love to have a laugh, meeting people and learning new things, among my many passions are weight training, running, horse riding and Muay Thai. I give 100% and am serious about doing my best to help create the best images - BUT - I don't take myself or life too seriously (in other words this lady's NOT a Diva ;D).

I will do ALMOST
any kind of shoot from crawling in the mud to being a princess bride, stark conceptual/emotive through to high glamour styles. As far as I'm concerned the more variety the better; exceptions are
nudes and spiders; no interest in the first - petrified of the second. Happy to do both studio and location shoots, (especially if location is Mauritius!) So let your imagination take wing and I'll do my best to help bring your ideas to life.
I have now started my own Mobile Personal Training business - Mentor Fitness:
As my business is appointment based, my availability varies and any shoots would usually have to be confirmed at least two weeks in advance, unless it is a Sunday which I can usually do at pretty short notice
Among the things I love about modeling is the chance to act as different characters, help create illusions and make ideas come to life. If needed I can do my own make-up (had my own face painting business for a while so can be pretty creative/artistic if needed). I also have some costumes and non-mainstream clothes that I am more than happy to use in shoots.
I have a vivid imagination, I write, paint, draw and love taking nature photography, (know of some great locations for shoots if needed). If we work together and you want creative input from me please let me know and I'll gladly "download" some of the countless ideas that are tripping over each other in their bid for freedom from my crowded imagination.
*The boring bits*
I am Australian size 8-10, shoe size 7-8, my hair is slightly longer than shoulder length, I have faint scars on left of forehead from car crash many years ago - mostly they do not show)..and finally an odd one - I can't wink - never have been able to...but can cross my eyes
Excerpt from Dean Bradshaw's Web Page:
"The latest iteration of this series focuses on a woman as the central character, reminiscent of the great movie 'Girl Fight'. In the same way that 'Girl Fight' benefited from the casting of Michelle Rodriguez as the main character, I was lucky enough to have a great model who really helped make the shoot such a success (Thanks Maria!)."
