First of all - It's been an up and down 18 months. For many reasons; both directly and indirectly due to this awful virus. So here's a big *virtual* industry hug/chin up sending love and support from Keira HQ to anyone who may need it.
ACTUAL government guidance will always be followed, backed up with legal/official advice sought from credible sources (not social media) - specific to my line of work. ✅
*My current stance*
I am now back shooting in person, touring and taking on events. I am fully vaccinated, but will still take all the precautions needed to ensure that my clients feel safe/are safe when they choose to book a shoot with me. Extra precautions that I can take include: taking a rapid test before a shoot or every day on a tour to ensure I am not/continue to not be a vector for the virus, distancing myself from busy public spaces/using own transport, taking personal cleanliness and cleanliness of spaces that I shoot from seriously (I always carry extra sanitiser/wipes on me) and finally - I am even willing to prepare and send a risk assessment to anyone who would feel more reassured receiving one prior to a shoot. These will be done for any events that I host as standard.
ON THE GOOD SIDE!!
I am now offering tethered remote shoots with my Canon 5DMiv!
Shoot and create great quality results from the comfort and safety of your own home!
We can work together no matter what the geographical distance between us is. 😉
My equipment/setup includes:- Canon 5DMiv body, 85mm 1.4 prime lens, 50mm 1.4 prime lens, 28-300 3.5 - 5.6 zoom lens, pair of softbox/umbrella continuous lights, portable/cordless LED continuous light, small fill lamps, 4 individual gel LED floodlights with several colour settings, a 14inch ring light (2 colour temperatures) and a reflector. My space includes; my various creative home sets, plus a private studio space and also industrial office (free out of hours). See video tour below...
Another *virtual* way of working for those who still do not feel comfortable shooting in-person yet is for me to take the shots (self portraits) with my setup and then send the RAW files across to the client with editing/drawing/artistic processing rights. I can shoot on location as well this way, it is also effective for commercial-use purposes
I've taken time during the pandemic as an opportunity to hunt for sooooo many more amazing locations around my area!! Some so secret - I swear I'm the only person who knows they exist! Great for literally all year round, let alone when you want to avoid bumping into other germy people! :P Interested in pre-booking a location shoot near me for when it's safe to do so? Book a full day and lunch is on me! ;)
I have made sooo many crystal lingerie collections this year! Unique bespoke wardrobe additions for remote and in-person shoots when we are allowed to do so again. :)
Finally: For anyone who has enjoyed my more spontaneous avenue of short film making in the past and would like to support me/see me make more productions - which are everything from crazy fiction scripts from scratch, to mini-documentaries about my creative journey/all sorts... Check out my website. Not a content site as such - just a way to indulge in creative madness/something which isn't a series that leaves you hanging on for the rest of your life! :') Each film has plenty of info so you can dabble in whatever you fancy/feel the vibe for:
Yayy, someone came to visit! [Smiles and waves] welcome people of Purpleville!!!
FOR THE MAIN EVENT...
I'm Keira; (key-rah) thank you popping by guys! By basic description: full time photographic model/actress... By industry weirdo jargon: professional (energetic) creative shape-pulling junkie/Duracell Bunny. ;)
Hair at the minute...
I have always been know for my light blonde barnet... Alas; I have always thought I should at least try my natural dark colour before I stop modelling haha (I'm not stopping yet by the way - don't worry :') ) Thus, not being able to go to the hairdressers for a significant period over lockdowns resulted in significant shiny dark virgin hair regrowth [dun, dun DUUUUNNNNNN!] and that subsequent desire to just roll with it - for a short time at least to mix things up a bit and allow my natural voluptuous mop to expand to it's usual mass. I'm really quite lovin' the dangerous brunette look too!
Behold... The darker side of Keira! ;)
This is the bit, I guess, where I should ramble on about my "lifetime knowing/awakening" to validate my love for my work? :P I like rambling - that doesn't necessarily mean that y'all wanna hear it so I'll "try" to keep this as brief as possible! :') I've been making pretty pictures (one way or another) since literally entering the world at the beginning of time. From that moment; I have never been able to fully end my love of all things arty, creative, visually-yummy and inspired. Even a science qualification in the theoretical world couldn't peel me away from creating in Keira land - attempts to ignore the mechanism of my brain were futile! Thus, I now thrive in a world of magic (pavements paved with unicorn dust etc.) when I take to posing. And fabulous things happen in this world of Keira's; essentially a place where my bill-paying occupation equals personal enjoyment because creativity just plays that big a part of my life naturally. I genuinely get out of bed for shoots like an excited child on Christmas morning, and I've been doing this for how many years!? :P
Transforming my body and facial expressions to fit the moment, express a visual mood or be painted by the light for the photographer or client to capture is how I roll. Welcoming professional and amateur photographers alike to work with me: stills and video! Covering your commercial/fashion/beauty/portraiture/glamour needs, or crossing to the arty/advanced side with fine art nude/body-scapes, sensuously powerful erotic, and even quirkiness as required to work towards that best level of "POW" in the finished images.
Essentially, the person who is going to turn up if you book me will bring with her; dedicated reliability, the motivation to work hard for customer satisfaction, willingness to form a positive teamwork-driven rapport, the capability of utilising her look and understanding light/how to present themselves on a set, dynamic versatility across poses, plus a strong desire to have visual understanding of the project brief. Those things are pretty much the basic standard you rightfully expect when hiring a reputable full-time model. That's the first boxes ticked... But what about me as an individual? What can I offer you specifically?
Never afraid to hold back on the expressions! Yes the killer resting b*tch face always works, but being an actress helps too >>>
Rather bendy! And strong-bodied! Training daily assures ability & safe pose execution enabling shape-throwing in pretty crazy places >>>
Likely to hold the world record on worlds biggest wardrobe variety - Constantly updating, I make unique/bespoke stuff too >>>
A creatively competent makeup artist/hair creator-person with an eye for precision across all degrees of simplicity or drama >>>
Heart-beatingly adventurous (yet safe, confident and reassuring) location approach like a leopard climbing/a mermaid swimming >>>
Serious stuff aside; the biggest people-person in existence. Any preconceived judgement that Keira is stern/scary/posh/[insert intimidating adjective] based on image alone prior to meeting me is a "lol-tastic" misconception - unless I'm doing it deliberately for the shots/scene mind. ;) The "human" me is simply a positively crackers (in the good sense) uber friendly chatterbox who could probably make conversation with a tripod! Failing that; my odd choice of tea breaks the ice: I drink pond water/swamp gloop/compost juice. Only the very bravest of photographers try my tea - most survived but there's not much to be said about their sanity! :')
My Look - I maintain a very natural and un-enhanced canvas in my appearance for work; I have very clear skin in great condition with no tattoos. I've had no body enhancements/surgery and my only piercings are ear lobe. My slim-but-curvy figure and bone structure (some distant Eastern Europe ancestry) is kept lean and toned with religious fitness regimes in my lifestyle - even on tour! Best way to actually see what I look like/with no makeup:
Levels -Throughout my port/albums you'll see a mix of portraits, fashion, lingerie, glamour, classic/art nude, bodyscapes, conceptual/acting and some more slightly suggestive (but not explicit) styles. All fall within what is deemed frontal nude by definition (when we are talking in terms of what is actually exposed). I do model non-explicit erotic styles with a tasteful/sensual vibe, the: "less is more" approach. I also model various styles of fetish, but this is where things can get confusing because this genre is so broad - I have an album depicting some of the fetish styles I am comfortable with, but the easiest thing to do if you are looking to include fetish is simply ask me. 💁♀️ If you seek a more graphic level of explicit posing/content - I'm not the model for you, and it doesn't matter if you deem what you are asking for to be less tame than images I have in my port - it's my choice. ;) A quick search puts you in the right direction for awesome models who can accommodate higher levels. Don't be afraid to message me respectfully for clarity; interpretations can vary. I would rather have that conversation now/by messages than end up in an awkward misunderstanding on the day of a shoot. 🙈
Rates - very reasonable, with discounts typically applied to longer shoot durations. I do not have tiered rates for different levels, however; they do vary depending on the country/if it's an event/commercial use etc. or if there are travel costs. Having a rate displayed for every situation is near impossible, and pretty much guarantees unnecessary confusion where that rate may not apply to a specific query. The easiest way to ensure correct quotes from the start is to contact me direct with the exact shoot/enquiry details which I can subsequently respond with an exact amount - no fuss/no judgement should you decide either way; just a straight-forward and fair total (with breakdown if needed). My rates are consistent with market forces and in-line with my experience/modelling abilities. I am not accepting TF work.
Communications - Highly approachable person alert! 😜 Whether you have a long list of ideas, or non at all - my professional/personal urge is to enthusiastically assist to the best of my ability, no matter who you are. From answering basic questions, to getting involved with developing those ideas... I just ask that you are as clear as possible in pre-shoot comm's clarifying exactly what outcome you expect (even if your plan is improvisation on the day). It helps me do MY job properly. :) I try to respond to every enquiry in good time, however; there may be times when I am physically snowed under/away from a physical computer. Like during a busy tour or hosting an event in the wildest locations with no signal. 🤷♀️ So during these extremely demanding times - please accept my sincere apologies in advance if I do not get back to you instantly; but I will always see to serious enquiries, so don't jump to the incorrect conclusion that I'm ignoring you/are not interested. My PurplePort diary is not up to date with every single one of my jobs (some of which come from other sources) so please contact for accurate availability.
Cancellations - they happen. They're awkward to talk about, but with good notice - not a problem! 😊 All I ask is for respect; respect that this is my livelihood which actually pays my REAL mortgage and REAL taxes. It may just be "fun and games" for you (of course it is for me too!) :D But it's also as real a job as yours is to you. Do your personal circumstances make you cancellation prone? Tell me! We'll tailor a plan that works/minimises the risk of leaving anyone out of pocket. My policy: (cancellation of shoots that have been in the diary for 24 hours) 1 weeks notice require the full fee agreed to be paid, plus expenses already laid out. 10 days notice require 50% of agreed fee to be paid, plus expenses already laid out. I'd honour/respect cancellation fees for my freelance ice skating coach - or for sports massages which often have similar policies/or simply take bank details upon booking and take the full amount in cases of cancellation. There's no reason why it should be off-putting just because I'm a model. Interesting when you think of it like that isn't it.😉🤔 Rest assured: if I cancelled on a photographer and they had incurred costs/took time off work which cost them - I would be covering their costs because I'm not one-sided person and consider myself fair. :) To avoid problems - please book with confidence you can fulfil the agreement.
References - I like to put thought into the references that I leave for people for a few reasons. Firstly; I genuinely appreciate those who choose to work with me - plus if it's been a particularly nice shoot, I feel that it is deserving of some thoughtful words for the experience. It's also far more useful for us models when there has been detail highlighted which may subsequently be reassuring factors to accepting a shoot. BUT - Because of my busy schedule all-year round (and because I don't just copy and paste: "turned up/I'm still alive") I do become backlogged with references from time to time. There's nothing that can be done about this, and I really feel awful if ever super lovely people get concerned because I haven't left them one yet. So for anyone who may worry about not getting a reference from me straight away - PLEASE DO NOT! What you can actually do is hover over the grey cog to the top right of my page and click on "activity" where you can actually see where I'm up to with references in date order (only fair to everyone I shoot with) - if, from there, it appears I have still left you out; then please feel free to drop me a message. :) ♥
