AWAY ON HOLIDAY AT THE MO.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A few things to know:

  • Please bear with while I catch up with messages backlog. (This is pretty much permanently the case.)
  • I currently have short hair.

  • I am based in Berlin again. Otherwise, I regularly appear in Cambridge, London, Nottingham, and Reykjavík.

  • If we've worked together and I haven't left you a reference yet, click on 'ask for a reference' at the top of this page. (I didn't realise until recently the importance of collecting as many references as possible, but I intend to rectify this.)

  • If I like/collect/comment on lots of your pictures it's because I like them; I like pictures, and I like lists. If you find it annoying, just say so.

  • My rates, travel plans and other important info can be found here.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Greetings. I'm a tree sprite who darts around all over the UK, Germany, Iceland and the rest of Europe providing the very important service of posing for pictures. I've quite some experience under my belt now, and my portfolio images here are ordered by year for your convenience. My style is eclectic and open-ended, so rather than try to sum it up in words I would just encourage you to have a quick skim through my pics. But let's take a quick sample of my mind - some of the many things that make me tick include: clashing patterns, the challenge of depicting concepts, permission to climb trees, minimalism, maximalism, genre bending, and the chaotic nature of light. Pictures are my passion, and turning other people's feelings into images is my calling.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

media:

~ most of my work is in photographic modelling (both film and digital), but I'm also available as a traditional artist's model: life classes, paintings, sketches, sculptures and suchlike.

~ moving images: I've done a handful of abstract/conceptual short videos. You'll find some on vimeo. I'm keen to branch out and push my boundaries in this genre.

~ audio: I've done a bit of voice work e.g. poetry and documentaries. See vimeo link above.

~ not all of my modelling is for purely aesthetic purposes! You might be surprised at the range of academic uses for a nude model. :-)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

skillz:

~ I'm quite sure footed and love to clamber.

~ water is my element and brings out the best in me - be it in a river, the ocean, a bathtub or a cup. I can be as tranquil as a lake or as meandering as a mountain beck.

~ make-up: I can do my own make-up to a good amateur standard, keeping up with the latest trends and technology to a reasonable level.

~ styling: I have an extensive and growing wardrobe of silly and serious pieces of attire, including vintage, designer and handmade items - what I can bring is only limited by travel. I do believe I have a flair for self-styling when it matters, despite the occasional day when I catch myself in the mirror and wonder when I started dressing like a homeless clown. Here are some examples of my endeavours.

~ they have called me 'versatile'. They have called me...'hot and cool'. My look has been described as 'forlorn', 'insouciant' and 'soulful'. But I can also  be hard, soft, distant, present, dynamic, still, haughty, fun, neutral, expressive, engaging, introspective, romantic, serious, Eastern, Western, sincere, ironic, classic, modern, boyish, girly, childish, womanly, old, young, hatched, unhatched, hinged, unhinged, and sometimes you even get the choice between angelic and monstrous.

~ notable inabilities: please note that I can't (yet) open my eyes under water without looking slightly unfortunate, dive, drive, stand en pointe (tho I can do a close imitation of it), handstand, cartwheel, quickly distinguish left from right, wink, whistle, yell, improvise rap, do mental arithmetic, lift weights, or look good in a swimming cap (I've got a weird head).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

physical properties:

~ my mysteriously international looks can be put to a wide range of uses (can you guess my origins?).

~ my head hairs are currently short. I usually have pubic hair, and luxurious armpit hair makes seasonal appearances according to popular demand. If you want something specific please consult me well in advance. Leg hair has also made recent debut appearances.

~ My body is a complex mixture of padded and bony, with mountainous ribs, knobbly limbs and a complicated torso made up of bones, belly jelly and muscles.

~ I have notoriously protuberant eyes which can look into a lens from many different directions due to being almost hemispherically set forth from my face.

~ My spindly arms make me look like Gollum on a diet.

~ It may not be evident in many images but I do have an ordinary amount of wrinkles, stretch marks, and I'm prone to all manners of spectacular surface irritations: insect bites, bruises, sun rash, shaving dots, and inexplicably purple knees. But I carry make-up with me and can do an ok attempt at covering blemishes up.

~ I once acquired a chipped tooth while eating some unjustifiably expensive lettuce. A 1x2mm rectangle is missing from the inner corner of my left front tooth.

~ this is my naked face.

~ to end on a neutral note, I'm proud to present one feature that has never drawn positive or negative appraisal: my almost entirely nondescript nose. It really holds the rest of my face together.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

'levels' etc:

~ anatomical explicitness: In principle, I don't hide any of the outside of my body, and will adopt 'open leg' poses as and when I see fit - however, discussion in advance is recommended so as to reach a mutual understanding of style and genre. (In any case, one tends to get more than one bargained for when it comes to my so-called 'pudenda' due to my unnecessarily voluptuous labia, and images of me often have to be set to 'adult' where someone else in the same pose might not.)

~ sexuality: use my current portfolio as a guide to what I may express at a shoot, but, again, discussion in advance is recommended.

~ 'messy' shoots: I do love mud, clay, paint and sand. I don't want to cover myself in foodstuffs (though flour is ok). As a general rule, I like clean dirt.

~ I'm not afraid to play ugly or scary characters, or depict dark and difficult themes.

~ I don't appreciate appearing in voyeuristic style photos that attempt to make it look as though I (the model) have been genuinely caught off guard. 

~ peril: I'm no stranger to mild peril on shoots and am driven to go that extra mile to get a more dramatic shot. So if I do deem something too dangerous or inadvisable, please respect that.

~ public nudity: I'm no exhibitionist, but I can tolerate being seen by the odd passer-by as long as we aren't in anyone's way. Nudity in nature is my element - nudity indoors is my cup of tea - nudity in town is not so much up my street.

~ I have a rule of not working skimpily clad outdoors in the colder climes from October through February. I can be persuaded to make exceptions but please understand that I devised this rule not just for my own comfort. No matter how much I resist the subjective discomfort of the cold, the physical reality is that I'll have a red, dripping nose and spectacularly spiky and colourful legs. (That's just what we're like on the planet that I come from.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

booking me:

~ If possible, please send me information about the date, location and theme of the shoot and links to your work.

~ I appreciate it when photographers send me informative but concise, polite, businesslike communications, well in advance of the proposed shoot date. I do my messages in batches, so please understand if you don't hear from me for a while. If you have my phone number, feel free to send me a prompt by text if a response is urgent.

~ You need to be able to provide references if I'm working with you for the first time. If you're new to model photography and don't have any references I'll probably recommend you book me at a studio day.

~ check here for my travel plans, studio days and rates info.

~ I will say no to TF work 99% of the time, but you can still propose. Things that will tempt me to TF: costumes, designers, pro hair & make-up team, high-end retouching and photomanipulation, print publication, or the opportunity to practice - with experts - some of the things I'm less experienced at: underwater, acting, high fashion, bridal. (I have a 'shoots for me wishlist' on Pinterest, which I can share on request.)

~ travel: if you'd like me to travel a long way to shoot with you, then instead of saying 'if you're ever heading my way...' it makes sense to go ahead and book me for a particular date (even if just in pencil) so that I can plan a trip around it and spread the travel costs around for you. Every tour has to start with a booking.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

working with me:

~ make-up: I usually arrive at a shoot with the base done and do the details when I arrive. This should take between 10-30 minutes depending on how elaborate the requirements are.

~ wardrobe: let me know well in advance what you'd like me to bring. If you're lucky I may even buy something new at your request.

~ personality: some things that I am: patient, practical, perceptive, phlegmatic, pragmatic, perseverant. / some things that I'm not: hyper, flirty, outgoing, loud, 'bubbly' (nor effervescent, fizzy and variations thereon, although I shan't claim that I'm never gassy).

~ collaboration: I'm deeply motivated by imagination and creativity, while also very technical in my approach. If we work together, I'll bring my visual passion into our collaboration as well as a careful systematic attention to the hermeneutics of the image. That visual passion and systematic attention are what jointly drive my obsession and place me on the 'artistic spectrum'. ;-) My strong faculties are introverted thinking and extraverted intuition, in that order, but when I'm working my intuition takes over, which is why I enjoy my job so much.

~ post-production: I'm happy to do the selecting of the final images, and occasionally some editing, if such input is desired. Here's a collection of images of me by others, that I've edited myself. 

~ me in real life: this is the person to look for if you're meeting me on my travels.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

with my other hat on...

~ I take photographs. Perhaps you'd care to take a peek. They're really rather nice.
