~TFP work available, message me with what you have in mind!~

I am an alternative model and internationally published fashion designer based in Derby. Although I am technically based in Derby, I am always travelling for work. I often joke that my apartment in Derby is basically a storage unit I sleep in before travelling again! Because fashion is basically my life, I focus on creating unique, interesting concepts that tell a story. Even my urban and street shoots have a different feel and character in mind.

I work up to implied topless for beauty/portraiture and lingerie level maximum, and only if it enhances the concept and is done with fashion/taste in mind, no shooting a girl in her underwear just for the sake of it. I also accept body painting shoots as the focus is not on showing topless or naked bodies and only if my nipples are covered by pasties/stickers and I wear underwear, even if it's just a thong. I have the right to refuse any work I don't feel comfortable with or pushes my levels. I will cease communication if I receive any messages hinting at or blatantly pushing my levels.

I own a car and am happy to travel for shoots (travel expenses may apply). I am happy to travel to nearby areas such as Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire, Birmingham, etc. any time of the year not including my travel dates mentioned below. I am also happy to travel to the surrounding areas of where I am during my travel dates (for example, if I'm in London, I can travel to Kent, Essex, Reading etc.)

--- Appearance ---

I have very long, hip length black hair and pale skin. I have no tattoos and three earlobe piercings in each ear, a scaffold piercing in my left ear and a navel piercing. I am happy to remove any piercings for shoots. I am 5' 3" but don't let that put you off - I am always in heels, dress to flatter my height and people are surprised to learn my real height. I have a small scar on my chest from a birthmark as a child but I forget about it is there. When editing my own photos, I choose not to as I have a personal moral stance of Photoshop culture and showing that models are not perfect and unflawed. That being said, I am happy for you to edit it out or request it edited out and don't expect you to have the same stance as me.

I can do my own make-up to a high standard. I take care of my hair and can do a couple of styles to a high standard but I'll admit I'm no Vidal Sassoon. I am working on this however, and shoot prices/TFP shoots are negotiable if you desire a make-up or hair stylist.

I have no cosmetic enhancements such as Botox, fillers, breast implants, etc. I am in good shape, UK clothing size 8-10 with minimal stretchmarks, even skin tone and am flexible for posing.

--- Personality ---

I am down-to-earth, polite, friendly and punctual. I usually turn up early just in case and have never cancelled or not shown up because I don't feel like it that day. I always let any creatives I work with know if I get caught in traffic or will be running late for any reason along with an updated ETA. I always go the extra mile when creating concepts and love working with creatives to create amazing shoots. I want to make sure you either get what you pay for with my work or that we both walk away with incredible images if the work is TFP. Obviously emergencies can happen for any party but I will always work to rebook or negotiate part refunds for payment depending on expenses already spent (travel, accommodation etc).

Even though I like creating concepts, I'm not a control freak and love working with photographers to bounce ideas off of each other. I am also more than happy to work closely to a photographer's own concept if you have something specific in mind you feel I'd be a good fit for.

Because I am a fashion designer, I understand styling, concepts, lighting and composition more than a standalone model.

--- Wardrobe ---

I have a large alternative and gothic wardrobe complete with jewellery, accessories and shoes, including a large Gothic Lolita wardrobe which makes for amazing fantasy, woodland, period and royalty concepts. Depending on my workload at the time, I can also make items to suit a concept or theme. I also have lots of supplier contacts and friends who own fashion brands all around the world to source items from so our possibilities are endless.

My wardrobe is sourced from all over the world and includes independent designers (including myself), designer brands and bespoke items. Most of my Lolita wardrobe is sourced from designers in Japan, is extremely high quality and genuine Lolita fashion, not the cheap, low quality, lewd "Lolita" style you can buy from eBay or Amazon. If you need a real Lolita model that has been involved in the fashion for almost 10 years, I'm your girl! I have modelled on runways for international Lolita brands including Atelier Pierrot (Japanese), Lief (Korean) and Cherie Cherise (Chilean).

--- Rates ---

Because I specialise in alternative and complex concepts, my wardrobe is unique, costly and sourced from all over the world. I give you the chance to work with a wardrobe you won't see elsewhere therefore I do take paid work in order to ease the cost. All of the items are bought with my own money or made by myself with 90% of it starting with items I simply wear in my everyday life (including the fantasy items, I'm a Gothic princess at heart ;) ) but naturally it needs freshening up and updating if I am to create something unique for you. Because I also do my own make-up (and hair to some extent, please see above), there's no need to pay for a HMUA unless absolutely desired. All shoots are a minimum of two hours and prices are negotiable if, for example, you supply the wardrobe, can travel to me or want to book a hair or make-up artist. 

Street shoots are £15ph 

Fantasy concepts are £25ph

Lingerie shoots are £35ph

This is but a fraction of the cost of my wardrobe; you are also paying for my experience, creative concepts, no need for make-up artist hire, travel and accommodation if needed. My job is to create something amazing for you and I assure that you'll get what you pay for.

Watch out for studio days and casting calls for discounts on my rates! If I have a date to fill during my travel dates, you may also see discounted rates.

--- TFP ---

I also accept TFP shoots if it offers something different to my portfolio or we are at the same level of experience as each other. If I add you to my "People I Would Like to Work With" list, this means I am happy to collaborate/work TFP with you.

Don't be afraid to ask about TFP work, I am super friendly and will always be happy to work something out with you. However, if I cannot accept a TFP shoot for whatever reason, please don't be offended.

--- My Brand and Collaborations---

As I create and run my own fashion brand, 8th Sin (www.8thsin.co.uk), I am open to loaning or trading pieces for shoots, acting as stylist and/or collaborating with other models and photographers as long as I get full use of the edited photos. I am also happy to collaborate with other fashion brands or style other shoots. Modelling and styling gives me a different creative outlet to my fashion design. Please send me a message if you'd like to work with my brand or require my styling/concept experience.
