About Me


My profile notes, like me, are:
- Never going to win any awards for minimalism
- Jaw-droppingly organised


I am a professional, versatile, natural model/muse, writer, sort-of-actress, dancer, globe-trotter & tea-addict. I am happy to say modelling has been a full-time love that has taken me all over the world for the last 8 years or so.

Please use this sign-up form if you'd like to hear when I'm travelling to your area, see new photos & receive a secret offer or two! In 2018 this will be my main (if not only) mode of contact as I switch away from other online tools. In return, you get monthly updates on images and, where appropriate, advance knowledge of any upcoming visits to your nearest city. Don't worry, there will be no bombardment (I wouldn't have the time to bombard anyone even if I wanted to!), just a one-stop way to keep in touch with what I'm up to.

If you would like to show interest in my work or discuss a possible booking: first, thank you; secondly, please do so via the form linked above rather than hinting, as I made the decision to stop receiving notifications of comments/follows/lists/telepathy, and no longer see them. The reason for this is simply because getting 100+ emails per day via different sites got far too overwhelming and I want to respect those who send me messages and specific enquiries about work by being able to respond to them in a timely manner, without getting distracted by lovely-but-non-essential notifications. Hope you understand! Strong/decisive contact (direct personal message) is appreciated... I would love to hear from you!

My portfolio here is massive and unwieldly, but I'm fiercely proud of it. I used to organise my images into neat, themed sections, but no one likes clicking between albums, so I gave that up. (But if you do like that kind of thing, my website might make you happy!) :-)

I have 100% positive references (happy testimonials here) and most people book multiple times, which is nice! :-)



I have what is repeatedly described as a very ‘classical’/'pure'/'feminine' appearance. My hair is naturally curly, very long (down to the bottom of my rib-cage when stretched straight), undyed and straddles various colourific boundaries; it is dark blonde or light-to-mid-brown depending on how you squint, and often looks fiery red in outdoor natural light. My eyes are massive (I genuinely struggle to find sleep masks that are comfortable; how’s that for a first world problem?) and greeny-blue. I've got very good, smooth skin. My face is quite asymmetrical, actually, so I could never pretend it's supermodel-alien perfect, but it all kind of works.

I have a somewhat (increasingly?) unusual body shape; I have a small waist and large/curvy hips, which gives dramatic curves. I've also got rather long legs (good for when you want to do full length shots and have your model look in proportion) and a toned torso... Basically an overall 'soft'/'romantic' appearance with some muscularity and strength mixed in.

When doing it myself, I turn up with make up kept quite subtle/simple (unless instructed otherwise). I'm also very good at an evening/smoky look and a few things in between, so can vary looks for you. Same goes for hair; I'm good at quickly pinning it up in various ways if you want a change from 'loose'.



I’m represented by commercial & TV/film casting agencies, and also take bookings directly and independently. For a list of some cool things I've been involved with, click here (but bear in mind I haven’t updated it for absolutely ages!).

I'm grateful to have had opportunities to work all over this incredible planet (from Mexico to Iceland, Australia to LA, Norway to Paris and all manner of places in between) for the last 8 years. I’ve done some (very small) acting roles in quite a few global productions from Downton Abbey to Marvel's Avengers. On the commercial side, I'm the face of The Wool Company and have worn more than my fair share of designer wedding gowns and corsetry/lingerie among other things.

WORKING WITH ME (/‘Will she just stand there looking bored?’)

If you think you’d be interested in me modelling for you and have a desire to be creative, work on a particular project or just get together and see what happens, I’d be delighted to work with you. I’m available for and experienced in:
- ART (anything beautiful/interesting/experimental; nothing 'adult')
- TV/Film (standard southern-English/RP accent; playing age early/mid twenties)
- COMMERCIAL (Fashion, Lifestyle, Dance/Sports, Wedding, Hair/Beauty)
- GLAMOUR (if it's done beautifully, with elegance and subtlety, e.g. like these)

I’ve questioned myself a lot over the years about why I got into this rather unconventional work. I genuinely see it as a sort of vocation. Sorry if that sounds pretentious. I consider my role a very actively creative one. I genuinely care about beauty, expression, authenticity, womanhood, identity, performance, myth, story and all sorts of other things that feed into this interesting art. So no, I won’t just stand there. I’ll make sure we get something good. :-)

I am very expressive, intuitive and emotive, and personally find images the most appealing and interesting to look at when they show some character and feeling (authenticity, naturalness, femininity, moods, intrigue and sensuality, etc.), and I hope/think this probably shows in my work. My dance background and empathy has instilled in me a huge and largely subconscious understanding of body/facial language and movement.

If you’re stuck for ideas, some things I love include: natural body/portraits, bohemian fashion, themes around myth, character, simplicity, pre-Raphaelite paintings, body studies, monochrome, film, colour, decadence, the natural world, fairy/nymph-esque tree-adoration, anything to do with water, commercial happy/smiling shots, wedding, animals, dance/movement, historical themes, music, literature, fantasy, vintage, renaissance, mermaids, stark/dark moods, flowers, and dressing up. I also love very simple, telling portraits, presence, authenticity; both romantic, soft, gentle, moods & powerful, strong, womanly ones... I've probably missed tons of things; I have very eclectic tastes actually and have enjoyed a huge range of ideas in the past, from posing nude in front of the Eiffel Tower (for some moody Helmut Newton-esque work) to standing on top of a clown (while wearing pointe shoes).

I love working with other models and have done a lot of this. I’d ask that you are conscious of keeping looks/builds/moods complementary (this doesn’t necessarily mean similar) where appropriate; I can recommend many models I love working alongside if easier for you.

Very happy to work with beginner/amateur/nervous photographers; I have often found these shoots as rewarding as those with established/award-winning/renowned photographers, and will put you at ease. I'm very experienced in a wide range of artistic settings (paint/sculpture as well as photography/film) and can pose freely with no input or take your direction, however you prefer.

I'm grateful for having an extremely high proportion of repeat bookings alongside new opportunities (either in one-off sessions or longterm projects); you can read about how easy it is to survive working with me here. I am generally described as ‘easy going’, ‘friendly’, ‘calm’ & ‘creative’, however feisty I think I am. (It's frustrating.)



I’m fully self-employed and have a flexible (though busy) schedule. I do accept many bookings several months in advance, here in England and all over the world, but am sometimes available for short notice shoots or things in between, so please don't be afraid to get in touch anytime; I'd love to hear from you! (My availability is far less than it used to be, but just as enthusiastic.)



I travel all the time but don't always post casting calls or travel notices, so please contact me with any interest. It’s also a really good idea to use my sign-up form to hear of my future visits to your area.

I live 'out in the sticks' in Oxfordshire (don’t worry, I drive, and it's just an hour or so from London!) and therefore have acres of ancient woodland, open spaces & flowers/bluebells/cornfields (seasonal!), fields, stone walls & avenues of trees on my doorstep. I love shooting here and sometimes offer a slight discount as it's so convenient for me. Nearby, there are ancient ruins, rivers & parks. The streets and architecture of Oxford itself are also very easy on the eye, made famous in many a film/TV series!

If you prefer a studio, I can recommend some, local or otherwise.

Home studios, local studios, wilderness, exotic wonderlands, weird places, tuition/themed events/workshops: all fine by me.

If you're thinking of sending me a message saying 'let me know if you're ever in X place...' that's great and I'll appreciate it, but please bear in mind that making an outright booking is often more simple and therefore efficient. Excuses to visit your part of the world are welcome. I may be able to build a little tour around your booking, and it means a shoot is likely to happen, not just remain a distant possibility forevermore until I disappear to start a full-time career teaching cats to bellydance, etc. If at all possible, offering to cover or contribute towards travel expenses is extra wonderful (but not always required).



My wardrobe collection is vast and diverse. (My personal taste is eclectic/colourful/feminine/bohemian/glamorous.) I can provide lots of things in different styles for shoots, including ballet tutus, skirts and pointe shoes, wedding dresses (Vintage Victorian and modern) and bridal corsets, bright sports/dance/yoga-wear, colourful and casual fashion, glamorous evening dresses and sophisticated ball gowns, beautiful lingerie (lace, silk, sheer, flowing, vintage, diaphanous, bright and modern...), romantic pre-Raphaelite clothing, plus jewellery, accessories, props, isis wings (I have two pairs of these; they're bellydance props for those who are interested!), silk dance veils, world costumery and lots more to add texture and interest to imagery. I have a habit of bringing too much, so you will be spoiled for choice. Please give me a clear sense of what you are after (or as clear as possible), and also feel free to bring your own items for me to model/use as props, if you like (I love this!).


MUSE-ISH MISCELLANY/EXTRA THOUGHTS (Can you believe there’s more?)
I'm fuelled by Earl Grey or fruit-infused green tea. Lady Grey or Chai if I'm feeling wild. :-) I've got a book you can buy. I play the piano. I modelled for a highly-acclaimed painter for a year (it was an honour). For more such unnecessary tid-bit frivolity, click here.

After a shoot, those photographers who kindly offer me the use of their web-res images for my portfolio/blog are always met with a resounding 'yes please!' (and copyright always credited), but it is never expected or demanded, and completely their decision. A huge 'thank you!' to those who do; this portfolio would be a lot less interesting to look at without images…

My health is important to me and I always take very good care of my fitness and nutrition, exercising regularly and using all-natural, pure skincare products. In fact, I am the creator of a natural, plant-powered skincare range ( Generally speaking, I'm one of those non-smoking/non-drinking/healthy lifestyle/lucky types often genuinely confused for being a student or early-twenties. I’ve also been described as ‘timeless’, which is quite a fun concept.

Have a nice day, and I hope to hear from you!

"I've shot with Ella many, many times now - every single one as enjoyable and creative as the one before. Ella is exquisitely beautiful, elegant and graceful in front of the camera and such charming, intelligent company. She makes it all look so easy, but as anyone who has read her blog will know, this is the result of much hard work and dedication, attention to detail and a willingness to climb hills, ford streams and brave all the elements of Mother Earth in the process. If I was only allowed to shoot with one model in perpetuity it would be Ella Rose Muse. An absolute gem - thank you ER" Read less

"Collaboration with Ella was a highlight of 2017. Not only the embodiment of boundless creativity and professionalism, Ella brought a wealth of other qualities to the table. A wordsmith, an entrepreneur, and a pianist of no small talent, the work environment became a place of ideas, long discussion and music. Her love of cats brought her into close quarters with the infamous ginger anti-socialite house cat Jonesy, and I'm hoping that next time they will become better friends! For myself, I was so very pleased to work with Ella Rose, who surely deserves the title of muse." Read less

"I worked with Ella as part of a combined shoot with Jessamyne. It was arranged at the last minute, the night before. But looking at Ella's profile I knew this was an opportunity calling, so we went for it. I was wanting to capture a natural state - something that isn't often done these days and many models find it hard to do - as do photographers!. I was blown away with how easily Ella did this - how relaxed and how comfortable she was - the images speak for themselves. Her experience and talent as a professional art model was completely obvious and I'd love to shoot with her again." Read less
