About Me

Amsterdam - 7th - 13th of November
Paris - 14th - 18th of November
London - 21st of November - 11th of December
Edinburgh - 12th - 15th of December

Endearingly misanthropic female seeking ridiculously good looking but antisocial male. Must like lawn bowls, penguins, bubble tea and me being naked on the internet. A job at the Large Hadron Collider is preferable, although I will accept someone who is friends with Stephen Hawking, David Attenborough and/or Radiohead. The ability to have long deep conversations till 4am about slime mold reproduction, why humans are basically a slower version of chimpanzees and why the sky is blue is absolutely essential. Must be able to go to Antarctica within an hour's notice and pick me up from home in a chariot drawn by tigers. Oh yeah, and speak fluent Icelandic and Kalahari bushman speak. Anyone less than this need not apply. Cool. Awesome.

What, this isn't a dating website?

Oh.

Well in that case.....

I'm a full-time professional model who is passionate about creating amazing images.  Well versed in many genres, I'm very versatile and can channel a wide variety of looks.

I have collaborated with many reputable creatives from around the world, producing work that has been featured in magazines, books, exhibitions, campaigns, lookbooks, prestigious art prizes and online media.  I'm also friendly (no really, I am), reliable, creative and always put my heart into achieving amazing results.

My rates are very reasonable and affordable. What you will get is a chameleon who can do pretty much anything without the diva attitude. I eat divas for breakfast with chilli sauce. I also have a tendency to fill people's memory cards, so you'll get about three shoots worth of images for the price of one wink

While your comments and messages make my day, please share the love with a tag and not a PM. I prefer to keep my inbox filled with serious work enquiries. Anything else and it has kittens. Gross.

Oh yeah, I have a sense of humour and a fair bit of grey matter between my ears, in case you hadn't noticed...

*FACK*

How the hell do you pronounce your name?

Mel-uh-zeen

Do you do TF*insert something that sounds useful but really isn’t*?

Nope. Nada. Nein. This really is my full-time job and I absolutely love it. I don’t secretly flip burgers/wash supermarket floors/get my junk out at the tittie bar when someone isn’t pointing a camera at me. This really is it, I mean it. I’ve worked my ass off over the years to get to where I am now, so I deserve to be able to put dinner on my table, pay my bills and have a roof over my head like the good little member of society that I am. Go on, hate me.

Do you negotiate your rates?

Hell no.

But everyone else does....

Cool. Go and book them then. I have loads of good clients from all over the place who are more than happy to pay me properly. I have no idea why, I guess they must value my skill, experience and high reputation. Feel free to get references from anyone I’ve worked with.

But, but, but.....

Stop whinging. Go and make some art.

What genres do you shoot?

Pretty much everything - fashion, fine art nude, beauty, commercial, glamour, alt, beauty, hair, pin-up etc. I have a strong understanding of what each genre entails and the aesthetic differences between them. You won’t get the same cookie-cutter posing and dull expressions when you throw a million totally different ideas at me. I actually think about what we’re shooting and consider what I need to do to give you what you need. I always aim to exceed expectations.

The only thing I won’t do is open-leg backyard gyno-exam style erotica. I mean come on, no one wants to see what I had for lunch, and passing yourself off as a ‘food photographer’ just isn’t going to work on me. Oldest trick in the book that...

I also don’t do so well at bondage. The last time I did it I actually threw up everywhere. Again, no one wants to see what I had for lunch.

But yeah, as you can see from my unruly clusterfuck of a portfolio, I’m very open minded and always aim for versatility over being a one trick pony. We can do whatever you want. Seriously, nothing is weird to me anymore.

Do you do your own hair/makeup?

Yes, I’m more than happy to do my own smash repairs. I’m pretty quick at it too (15-20 mins max). But if you prefer to use a makeup artist/hair stylist go for it.

Do you supply your own wardrobe?

Yes if need be. I have my trusty suitcase full of magic tricks and stuff. I can’t guarantee that it will be clean, but thankfully scratch-‘n-sniff photos are still a thing of the future, so we should be good.

Are you available for workshops/group shoots?

It depends. If it’s a legit, properly organised workshop run by a reputable professional photographer with a wealth of technical knowledge to share with sincere students who want to hone their craft then I may consider it. But if it’s more of a ‘let’s set up one light and gangbang the model with our lenses all at once and....oh, what were you meant to be teaching them again?’ kind of thing, then I’m not interested.

If you want to shoot as a group to share costs, then cool, but I charge per head. Don’t worry, it’s still cheaper. I also need to see who I’ll be working with. Are they actually photographers or are they your mates from the pub who are severely lacking in female company?

Are you really as grumpy as you sound? I’m scared....

Probably not ^_^
