Melanie Bond (Butler)
Experienced and well published Model based in Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, UK.
Vaccinated model against Covid-19
For years I was purely modelling Pin Up but over the last couple of years I have been enjoying shooting a wide range of styles.
I am Reliable,
Good communications pre, during and after the shoot.
Modelling is my job so I do only work for pay - but this means you get the reliability that not only will I turn up for our shoot but I will be prepared. We will speak before and plan our shoot, I will text you when I am on my way on the day, provide you with my number / contact information and keep contact with you. I will always give you a nice reference if our shoot goes well and is professional throughout. I take it very seriously that whoever books me gets the results they are hoping to achieve and will always give you 100%
Things about me:
I look after myself!
I am a very active person, I have a German Shepherd and we go out walking everyday in the Countryside.
I don't drive - so I walk or train it everywhere! (I can get some lifts to shoots also)
I don't smoke! I don't drink heavily - I only really drink socially occassionally
I eat healthy and always dieting in the week!
I get my hair done professionally and my nails / eyebrows and I get massages to stay nice and chilled.
I can do my make up to a high standard.
I have a big wardrobe - I have everything from an ettire Pin Up / Retro wardrobe to designer clothing such as Ted Baker dresses etc.
I have a big lingerie collection and I love Stockings and suspenders!!
I am fortunate enough to live in the beautiful Cotswolds - so if you want to come shoot here - we can do a Cotswold location shoot - this has been a success a few times now!
I am heavily involved in the Hot Rod, Classic Car and Drag Racing scene where I have my largest following and alot of where alot of my published work has come from. I attend various Hot Rod shows throughout the year and I am a member of the Victory Wheelers Car Club. My partner is also a well known Drag Racer so we can often be found at Santa Pod. I am available to shoot at both shows and at Pod and also available for promo. I have alot of contacts in this scene which means I can sometimes have access to alot of nice cars etc to shoot with.
I have been published in a number of print magazines and online publications:
Custom Car - Feature Model articles
Street Machine - Front Cover and various Feature Model articles including posters!
Back Street Heros (BSH)
Nostalgia Drag World,
Allard Publications - Only Model and posters
Digital Photographer magazine etc.
I have been known as the Allard Dragster & Nuthin Fancy promo girl. I have done Grid Girl work, catwalk and hair modelling.
I have also done Group Shoots.
As I have been modelling for a good number of years, I only take paid work and my rates reflect my experience.
My rates are 25ph however sometimes I do offer deals on longer bookings
I am also happy to work to a set rate agreed in advance rather than hourly rate - this often comes into play when I need to travel a couple hours plus to you - I will do a day rate - this means you are not paying my hourly rate whilst I am on the train but the rate would include something towards me travelling. So you save money and I still make something for my time.
Travel over 40 minutes is to be paid.
I expect cash on the day unless you tell me in advance you would like to pay by Banks transfer or Paypal - this is fine but would need to be paid before the shoot.
A handful of images from our shoot that I choose for editing for my portfolio and social media sites - it keeps my work up to date and shows me as an active model!
The minimum booking is 2 hours.
I can shoot at the weekend or mid week normally between School hours of 09:30-2:30 - full days can be arranged too occassionally.
I do have alot of direct train routes from my village - I can get to places like Oxford, Reading, London, Hereford, Birmingham and Bristol etc.
Please put forward your location and most of the time, I am happy to travel to wherever you are for a shoot! Either train or lifts can be at weekends.
The only exception for TF would be a very experienced photographer who I follow and absolute love their portfolio and would love the chance to work with. Please don't take any offense to list I have about a list of 10 who I idolise.
My levels are up to lingerie,
I sometimes shoot implied topless and sheer. But this is my decision so please do not expect that on the shoot unless arranged in advance. Also no nipples to be shown in final published imagery.
This is due to the Cheesecake Pin Up following I have and the car scene I am in so full frontal nudity does not really fit into that image.
All shots must be tasteful - for lingerie - I am not going to shoot anything where I look trashy or have my legs open etc.
No touch policy!! Sometimes if something ie hair needs to be moved, please let me know then quite often happy for it to be moved etc.
If you cancel on me less than 48 hours before the shoot, I will ask for 50% of the agreed fee - just because it is unlikely I can fill the spot and I have seen that most models do this now.
If we have a shoot booked in and you cancel on me and its not an emergency (health, bereavement etc) I will ask for a cancellation fee of 30%. This is anytime after we make the booking.
I always have creative ideas - so message me to get creative
I can shoot mid week currently too - from 09:30-2:30 - a full day could also be arranged with just a little more planning!
Please take a look at my portfolio and my references and drop me a message to book in and discuss ideas! - I will always come back to you!
