Impossible to pigeon hole, Rebecca is an intriguing enigma - prepare to be inspired!

a couple of things you should know about me:

- I sometimes take a long time to reply to messages.

- I often have armpit hair. Please check my tour schedule here for info about the appearance and disappearance of pubic and armpit hair.

Greetings. I'm a tree sprite who emerged from Great Britain and now darts around (mostly Northern) Europe providing the very important service of posing for pictures. I've quite some experience under my belt now, and my portfolio images here are henceforth ordered by year for your convenience. My style is eclectic and open-ended, so rather than try to sum it up in words I would just encourage you to have a quick skim through my pics. However, one or two statements can be made with certainty: Rebecca is not especially inspired by lacy lingerie, long silk gloves, or lounging on grand pianos; she is easily thrilled by clashing patterns, the challenge of depicting concepts, and permission to jump into lakes. "She is drawn to modelling as an exercise in exemplifying and defying genre," she says, concerning herself.

An unusual and very sophisticated model, highly recommended.


~ most of my work is in photographic modelling (film and digital), but I'm also available as a traditional artist's model: life classes, paintings, sketches, sculptures and the like.

~ moving images: I've done a handful of abstract/conceptual short videos. You'll find some on vimeo. I'm keen to branch out and push my boundaries in this genre.

~ audio: I've done a bit of voice work e.g. poetry and documentaries. See vimeo link above.

~ not all of my modelling is for purely aesthetic purposes! You might be surprised at the wide range of academic uses for a nude model.

Limelight Photography, photographer wrote:
Rebecca has a unique presence which leaps out in her pictures, a lively intellect, ideas and inspirations in abundance, and the determination to make great pictures. Couple that with a friendly and professional manner, and it's hard to recommend her too highly.


~ I'm very sure footed and love to clamber.

~ water is my element and brings out the best in me - be it in a river, the sea, a bathtub or a cup.

~ I'm not afraid to play ugly or scary characters.

~ they have called me...versatile. They have called me...'hot and cool'. My look has been described as 'forlorn', 'insouciant' and 'soulful'. But I can be hard, soft, distant, present, dynamic, still, haughty, fun, neutral, expressive, engaging, introspective, Eastern, Western, sincere, ironic, classic, modern, boyish, girly, childish, womanly, hatched, unhatched, hinged, unhinged, and sometimes you even get the choice between angelic and monstrous.

~ notable inabilities: please note that I can't (yet) open my eyes under water, dive, drive, stand en pointe, cartwheel, quickly distinguish left from right, wink, whistle, improvise rap, do mental arithmetic, lift weights, or look good in a swimming cap (I've got a weird head).

Simon Richardson, photographer wrote:
Extraordinarily creative and original, fearless and helpful - a dream to cooperate with. And check those eyes.

a note or two about my physical properties:

~ my mysteriously international looks can be put to a wide range of uses (can you guess my origins?).

~ my head hairs are currently long and slightly wavy ; one or two or three of them are white ; I have pubic hair that comes and goes, and armpit hair that makes seasonal appearances. If you want something specific please consult me well in advance.

~ my physique has ranged from somewhat spindly to pleasantly plump: it's currently at a happy medium ; prominent ribs are a permanent feature, body-fat notwithstanding.

~ I have notably protuberant eyes which can look into a lens from many different directions due to being largely outside my face.

~ both my face and my rear when viewed in profile are possessed of a satisfying if petite nubian grandeur, if I may say so myself (sadly the same can't be said for my arms, which frankly make me look like Gollum on a diet).

~ I'm prone to insect bites, bruises, sun rash and all manner of spectacular surface irritations when modelling in the great outdoors. But don't worry - wherever possible, working around my imperfections (with make-up) is my job, not the photographer's.

~ I recently acquired a chipped tooth while eating lettuce. A 1x2mm rectangle missing from the inner corner of my left front tooth.

~ to end on a neutral note, I'm proud to present one feature that has never drawn positive or negative appraisal: my entirely nondescript nose. It really holds the rest of my face together.

eroticalia, photographer wrote:
For me, she is an uncut diamond. She has a somewhat raw, almost Gallic quality (that I love), something distinctively European: a particular mood, that if you can capture, will bring to your images a very special and individual quality.


~ anatomical explicitness: In principle, I don't hide any of the outside of my body, and will adopt 'open leg' poses as and when I see fit - however, discussion in advance is recommended so as to reach a mutual understanding of style and genre. (In any case, one tends to get more than one bargained for when it comes to my so-called 'pudenda' due to my unnecessarily voluptuous labia.)

~ sexual explicitness: use my current portfolio as a guide to what I may portray, but, again, discussion in advance is recommended.

~ 'messy' shoots: I do love mud, clay, paint and sand. I don't want to cover myself in foodstuffs (though flour is ok). As a general rule, I like clean dirt.

~ peril: I'm no stranger to mild peril on shoots and am internally driven to go that extra mile to get a more dramatic shot. I consider myself solely responsible for my life during a shoot so when I say no I mean no, but when I go further than you ask, you can trust me; I'm not going to sue you if I die. :-)

~ public nudity: I'm no exhibitionist, but I don't mind being seen modelling nude as long as I could be construed as minding my own business rather than intentionally provoking strangers. As such, naked in nature is generally ok, naked in town is not so good.

Terry Johnson, photographer wrote:
Rebecca is one of the best I've worked with. Enthusiastic, friendly and creative. She connects naturally with the camera, and possesses a wide palette of manner and expression. And she's uniquely beautiful.

booking me:

- If possible, please send me information about the date, location and theme of the shoot and links to your work.

- I really appreciate it when photographers send me informative (but concise), polite and businesslike communications, well in advance of the proposed shoot date.

- You need to be able to provide references if I'm working with you for the first time.

- I will say no to TF work 99% of the time, but you can still propose. Things that will tempt me to TF: costumes, designers, hair stylists, high-end retouching and photomanipulation, print publication. (I have a 'shoots for me wishlist' on Pinterest, which I can share on request.)

- travel: if you'd like me to travel a long way to shoot with you, then instead of just saying 'if you're ever heading my way...' it would be productive to go ahead and book me for a particular date so that I can plan a trip around it. Every tour has to start with a booking. I travel by public transport.

- see here for rates info and availability.

I can highly recommend you to every ambitious photographer who is looking for an expressive, uncomplicated and very professional and reliable model!

imagesse, photographer wrote:
Rebecca's attention to detail with her posing is very noticable!

with my other hat on...

I take photographs. Perhaps you'd care to take a peek. They're really rather nice.

Keith Crystal, photographer wrote:
Rebecca is simply the best art nude model that I have ever worked with. Intelligent, versatile, beautiful, a real pleasure to shoot - and those eyes!!

And lastly...
In this line of work I consider a model to be a type of artist, if I may shay sho myshelf. I'm deeply motivated by imagination and creativity, but also very technical in my approach. Through my career I get to learn so much from interesting people in different walks of life; every modelling experience I have contributes to making me a better and more understanding appreciator of art and its reasons. Nietzsche said that art is the proper task of life - I think I would agree if I knew the meaning of 'proper'. 


As you can maybe tell from my epic list of lists, I like pictures. Not a day goes by that I don't seek out images to make me smile in appreciation. If we work together, you will find me bringing that visual passion into our collaboration. But I also bring a careful systematic attention to the hermeneutics of the image. That visual passion and that systematic attention are what jointly drive my obsession and place me on the 'artistic spectrum'. ;-)

canescence, photographer wrote:
You seem to get a depth of character and an intensity of emotion with Rebecca that is peculiar to her and it gives images of her something very special.

P.S. regarding friend requests: I would prefer to have a friends list consisting almost entirely of people who intend to work with me in some way, so an accompanying message would be appreciated. Otherwise I will probably not accept the friend request. Thanks.

Maxoperandi, photographer wrote:
Beautiful beyond belief, a true professional model of the highest order....can't recommend her enough!
If you are a serious photographer then Rebecca delivers on all counts. I have worked with this stunning woman for many years now and her creative spirit show no bounds.

Michael James, photographer wrote:
A thoroughly professional model who can pose suitably for any variety of different genres: you name it - she can do it and with great panache too. A very versatile look - sweet and innocent, edgy and hot - all in one very neat package. Has dimples too!! Highly recommended.

P.P.P.S. If you're curious...and even if you're not, I'm going to tell you this anyway: some of the strange captions on my pictures here...they're computer-generated.

John Duder, photographer wrote:
She's a one-off.
Intelligent. Creative... Uncommon looks. Poses creatively, athletically, boldly.

I got rid of my very long vertical list of names and created this list instead. You can use it to find all the people (on ModelMayhem) whom I've worked with (photographers, MUAs, other models etc).

Below are some more references:

imagesse, photographer wrote:
The correspondence which lead to my extended shoot with Rebecca included references to Wittgenstein – a first in all my communications with models! Seriously, something that evidenced the powerful intelligence which underlies Rebecca’s work as a model. That means you get someone who really thinks about the creative process and outcome of art photography.

SensualImages, photographer wrote:
I've worked with Rebecca many times over a period of several years - she is such a creative partner so it's always easy to get great images. Also a lovely person and a good friend. Highly recommended as always!

eroticalia, photographer wrote:
...not only is she wonderfully photogenic, but I found her to be willing and open to new ideas, perceptive and intelligent in offering hers, and ultimately, a very charming and stylish young woman.

John Beard, photographer wrote:
It was such a pleasure to meet and work with Becky. She is a wonderful, soft and warm person, at one with her body with no inhibitions; no one should ever take her as a person for granted...

ShadowShow, photographer wrote:
Where to start... Rebecca is a somewhat wonderful model whom I can't praise highly enough. She's a one woman eclectic mix of talent; she can switch between moods and expressions at the drop of the proverbial hat - the one moment demure, the next sensual and the very next playful. It's not just her indubitable modelling skills but her acting ability as well...she conveys emotion in a multitude of ways and brings passion and soul to your images.
What else can one say... Rebecca is full of ideas, totally comfortable taking direction or just going with a basic idea and seeing where it takes her. I look forward to working with her again.

Mike Huit, photographer wrote:
Rebecca has an artistry that is both a natural gift and with heightened creativity. She infuses her instinctive and consummate delivery with great beauty.

Clive, photographer, Kaz Studio wrote:
Totally comfortable with her beautiful body and her face and eyes are beyond compare. Rebecca has the wonderful combination of perfect figure, exotic looks, fitness and intelligence. She knows how to pose art nudes and is a brilliant model for all levels of photographer. Highly recommended.

Kirkschwarz, photographer wrote:
Astounding beauty, boundless mind, creative soul, occasional ruiner of childhood dreams, harsh judge of swans and possible bohemian. An entirely necessary experience in the world of photography.

Malcom Mellon, photographer and bodypainter wrote:
A great nude model has  the ability to pose autonomously with an understanding of form and light and balance and emotion, and to also be able to take direction, follow new themes, and respond to her environment.  Rebecca is a rare creature who achieves to perfection the balance between being posing and being posed, and is never on autopilot.

Carl Williams, photographer wrote:
Pprofessional, thoughtful and committed...took my ideas and ran with them. Got all I wanted and much more.
