Firstly, thanks for visiting my portfolio. Hey, I'm Gem, Irongem✌ I am now fully vaccinated and taking bookings again. My mum has COPD, I'm her carer, so caution is a must.

Upcoming tour dates, with accommodation to shoot:
Middlesbrough- Tuesday 12th July - one late night slot remains
Newcastle - Thursday 14th July - available after 2pm
Glasgow - Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September
I'm a Scottish alternative model who is part of Twisted Angels agency and with numerous small publications now under my belt. I have found an artistic outlet, passion & empowerment I never knew existed. After lots of encouragement I decided to try and make this a career a few years ago. I am loving it! I can express parts of me I never knew were possible whilst, embracing my femininity and strength to create some wonderful images (so I like to think anyway).
I would say I am into alot of the 'darker' things in life.. which I always love to focus shoots on. I am more than happy working on a massive range of ideas and can easily switch my look from my daily alternative to a casual style, and many things in between. I am happy travelling absolutely anywhere for a shoot - I just love meeting new people to create with! I am an outgoing individual who can "chat the hind legs off a donkey" as I get told very often (My customer service and call centre management background I think). Though I do take my work seriously, I love to make sure we are giggling during our time together and always strive to create a comfortable environment wherever I am to get the best results.
I'm very content with my body and open to suggestions of alternative, fetish & creative themes alike. I am able to freestyle pose an entire day if required and also more than happy to take direction to bring your ideas to fruition. I am a big fan of mood-boards so we both know what we want from a shoot. I have already 'led' quite a few shoots in regards to outfits, ideas, duo shoots, working with new photographers to create work that you (the photographer) and myself have been extremely happy with. Although I will always take full direction of what you are aiming to achieve and only have my input when it is asked for. As much as I haven't got decades of experience - I can certainly work to just as high a standard as someone with a long standing modelling career. I enjoy being creative and expressive more than I can put into words.
There is so much to explore and create - so if you want to lead a shoot and have me bring your ideas to life, or ask more about my ridiculous amount of ideas and use some of those, feel free to get in touch. I am happy working with professional and amateur/hobbyist photographers alike. I'm a bit old fashioned, I don't judge working with someone based on how many shoots they have done or their experience(a few new people to model photography seem to worry a little on this, and get rejected by some full time models) - just our thoughts and ideas. Life is all about learning after all! ❤
I am happy to be apart of many different projects, whilst also looking to adventure into many themes and styles such as;
▪ Fashion ▪ Alternative fashion ▪ Boudoir ▪ Pinup ▪ Art nude ▪ Swimwear ▪ Body-scapes ▪ Duo shoots ▪ Hair modelling ▪ Alternative fashion
Then into darker and horror style shoots- I am happy to work within any of your ideas or share my own - involving but not limited to;
▪ Fetish themes ▪ Glamour ▪ Gothic styles ▪ Horror ▪ Latex modelling ▪ BDSM (non pornographic) ▪ Dark location shoots ▪
I really am not a shy person and everyone of you I have met so far haven't complained at my non stop energy luckily. I like to enjoy my shoots and have fun whilst creating with other artists. Whatever the theme I will always work hard to achieve ideas planned out beforehand, keep the shoot relaxed, professional and fun.
I am happy working from portraiture to alternative fashion just as much as I am with creative themes, nudity for artistic purposes and fetish levels. I do not shoot anything unstated.
If a paid shoot, rates start at £35/hr- I am happy to discuss part paid and TFP if we have similar ideas and we could benefit each other's portfolio. Though I am treating this as a job and I am mainly looking for paid shoots so I can't do these with everyone sadly.
Yes - my rates are two tiered! Each type of shoot requires different things and not all models shoot higher levels so I charge to the available market rates. I don't find it fair to charge a higher fetish rate for a day of fashion and portraits which is broadly available in the market, for example.
£35/hr - for all styles including; fashion, alternative fashion,portraits, bodypainting, art nude, implied nudity, topless and glamour (discounted rate available if shooting purely portraits)
£45-50/hr - Higher levels - fetish, latex, erotica, uninhibited nude - this rate varies slightly depending on what you would like to create
If any ideas you have do not fit into these categories, you are more than welcome to enquire with no obligations to book. I do not shoot any levels above what I have stated here.
* Discounts for half day & full day bookings. Minimum booking is two hours. Unless TFP or part paid. *
For any booking within East Scotland : Aberdeen; Perth; Dundee; Edinburgh; Stirling; Glasgow (or in between), I will not expect travel expense if a full day shoot is booked. If the shoot is less than a full day, I usually end up doing a little tour of the area for a couple of days to make the trip feesable and save anyone feeling pressured into travel fees.
I book hotels regularly to use as a base, though I am more than comfortable working in a studio and also on location - the climate conditions don't bother me and I do have ideas involving snowy days, rainy days, sunny beach days and much more. I really don't mind travelling either so don't let distance put you off, anywhere in the UK is quite manageable for me, as mentioned I try to do a few days worth of shooting in your area and love the chance to travel - I am also available worldwide if travel fees are covered.
When I tour - I do ask for a 25% deposit to cover my bases incase of no shows and last minute cancellations. if cancelled up to 48 hours before the shoot this is fully refundable, life happens and things can crop up, after numerous cancellations and not being able to fill the space, losing me a good chunk of income, this measure is purely for my own safety of income. If we have worked together numerous times, then this probably won't be asked as we have already established good trust. If a deposit is something you feel uncomfortable with, then just talk to me, if you have plenty of positive references to show you are reliable, this can possibly be waivered.
'Adult' work is mainly on the links below, not PurplePort.
I have nose ring, a 3mm helix(top of ear) and two stretched lobes at 20mm (my hair covers these most of the time). I used to have 3 lip piercings which have now been removed, though small marks still remain. I have numerous tattoos, including a back piece, zombie girl on my arm and Greek mythology inspired leg tattoos of Hades and Achilles - though I am not offended at these being covered with clothing or make-up to achieve desired looks. I cover them regularly for certain work where the clients do not enjoy the aesthetic of tattoos. We are all different, like different looks in our images and I am happy covering them up if required, with no offence taken.
I can do my own hair and make-up to a good standard but have no extensive practice in beauty. If you want specific looks and/or styles, I may manage these myself as I have been practicing plenty with lots of improvements or we may need some help of a wonderful MUA if for a specific detailed project. I am always happy having my nails and hair the way you see fit, and will be groomed well for any and all shoots.
If you got to the end without falling asleep..... Thank-you for reading!
