Full-time professional freelance model (ABN holder, sole-trader). Genuinely passionate about what I do, thrive on creativity of all kinds, am very patient, understanding, easy going and easy to work with - and will always go that extra mile for to get the shot!
(full posing video available on


Someone who is: Reliable, never flakes, easygoing, creative and professional. All that good stuff. I am very experienced and do not need any posing direction, but take direction well if required. I am experienced posing for all sorts of photographic mediums, including film, wet plate, etc.

LIMITS and Things I don't do:
• 'Hard' glamour (kinky/cheesy costumes, lollipops, inelegant lingerie/swimwear etc.)
• Glamour poses with guns or weapons (if it fulfills a meaningful theme/concept that is a-okay)
• I will not feign smiles, surprise faces etc as that is out of character for me - I prefer to be genuine
• No pornography, crotch shots, 'orgasm faces' or 'spread' shots - nothing more explicit or exposed than what is shown in my portfolio
• Anything construed as fetish (unless I know you very well), corsets and latex are fine
• Pose with other models - male or female - unless I know them and it is previously agreed

These are general guidelines  - If you're unsure then I won't take offence to being asked!

Things I Love:
• Emotive/expressive portraits
• Art nudes in nature/complimenting and echoing a landscape
• Interesting studio fine art setups/experimenting with light and the human form
• Fashion nudes
• Weird/creepy/avant-garde themes - the stranger the better!
• Flow posing using dance inspired movement/slow shutter speed
• Natural light boudoir
• Sensual lingerie or nudes
• Window light settings
• Shooting in baths/showers/swimming pools
• Vintage or timeless looks
• I am a total sucker for film, wetplate, Polaroids - give me analogue!

Other Things You Should Know:
• Happy to work with amateurs or seasoned professionals alike - I have been many photographers first shoot - and I'm happy to offer creative input
• I have two unobtrusive tattoos, easily coverable/hardly noticeable - as you can  see from my images.
• I have (neat) 'art model bush' and no I will not shave for our shoot
• I check references wink and have many that can vouch for me if you're curious!

If you wanna work with me...
NO TFP EVER - I already have more awesome photos than I could ever know what to do with. I absolutely love what I do, but there are much simpler ways to make a living and I couldn't dedicate my life to this if it wasn't a true passion - but I've still got to eat, pay rent and clothe myself.

If you don't think you can afford to work with me, throw me a number and I'll see what I can do, this is my job, but I also believe in art and helping other creatives.

• I am happy for you to share the shoot with other photographers, but I charge per head and will need names and examples of work from the others to be in attendence.
• Half and full day discounts. 
• A standard 25% deposit secures your desired time and date for booking
• 50% cancellation fee within a week. 100% within 48hrs. This goes for flakes and no-shows too! This is especially important while travelling, please respect that this is my livelihood. Thank you to those who have honoured this - to those who haven't, I've kept track. 

Don't be inconsiderate, this is a small community, models talk a lot.

Little Extra Things
Please be aware that while I'm travelling I have delayed reply times for messages as I can't always access the internet, messages will be replied to asap in order of urgency. Thanks!

I do not discuss/organise/negotiate shoots over the phone, it is important for me to have the conversation history in writing so I can easily refer back to it!
