Rotterdam, or anywhere…

17 Jun

“There are only two things I hate: people who are intolerant of other people’s cultures……… and the DUTCH!!!”
Not really- I’m quoting Austin Powers. The Dutch are really lovely. :P

I’ve based myself in a coffee shop in Utrecht, where after three days the staff still find my fascination with the hot chocolate hilarious. (In Holland, hot chocolate is made by melting chocolate buttons into hot milk.)

I’ve had an intense few days of studio workshops that have passed in a slick of latex, and a fantastic shoot with Ardi-foto for Ardita fashion in some amazing locations. (I can’t show you the finished results yet as they’re for publication, but here’s a behind-the-scenes from outfit #2, by Dawnamatrix (bra-top) and HMSlatex (chest-harness)
We were in the local paintball shooting range- I’ll tell you all about it later when I’ve collected up the rest of the BTS shots.

I also visited Rotterdam for one night- I’d arrived on a Friday evening but found it the most peaceful, beautiful place I have been in a long time. My camera died shortly after I began my walk, but I visited the local park, which had green parakeets and just about every river bird I knew (and a few more I didn’t). I only wanted to check it out, but ended up sitting by the river for about an hour, watching the sun set behind a tiny peninsula where a family of moorhens had gathered under a weeping willow.

As I have no pictures of one of the most magical evenings of my travels, have some shots of the harbour and a different bird family. (Six ducklings- they must be so proud!) :D

Oh, and there are sculptures everywhere. Go to the bottom to see a gnome with a buttplug. (See what I did there? *Snigger… Snort…*)

Art Critic Heron is impressed!

Now I’m back in Utrecht, I’m about to go and check out a little boat-cafe I saw a few days ago, but thought you might like to see a couple pictures I forgot to post, from all the way back in January, with Guy Bisson. :)

Oh yes! And the voting has ended now for the Deep Down and Kinky Awards- thankyou so much to everyone who voted for me- it really does make me happy to see my work recognised. Many virtual computer hugs to you all. :)

On that note, I’m in an advert in Retribution Magazine, along with my good friend Anita De Bauch. Photo by David Long.

I’m going off to dream on a boat now! And maybe even write, fingers crossed…

Speak to you all soon…

p.s. How could I forget…
Stop it, Rotterdam!

Another magical forest

14 Jan

I never get fed up of shooting in forests- every few weeks, I get an entirely new backdrop to interact with and new plants and creatures to look for- especially when I’m shooting outside of the UK.
Last time I visited the Netherlands, I found wild boar, red squirrels, nuthatches (I think) and deer. I also discovered Dutch pancakes. Not a creature, I know, but still seriously amazing. ;)

I got these pictures from Frits aka Studio3nl a little while ago but didn’t have the chance to post them up! So here you go- it was a beautiful day, if a little muddy. Though we tried hard to be discreet, we did nearly cause a man to fall off his bicycle, which made me nearly fall off the tree stump I was posing on!! Utterly hilarious- it was a multi-quadruple-take, as he kept swinging back off his seat just to check I wasn’t a figment of his imagination, LOL!!

Wish me luck- I’m about to head South (hopefully ahead of the snow) for some outdoor nudes… though hopefully my “Narnia coat” will get another outing too… ;)

Got to dash!

The strength of the earth

28 Dec

I’m on holiday! I’m enjoying it. :) I’ve been eating all sorts of Christmas crap, having marathon ‘Lie To Me’ sessions, cuddling my cat and planning my projects for next year. I’m getting a bit restless actually so am about to start making new outfits for shoots and looking into my next career…

I’ve also been sent so many images and tearsheets recently- I’ll post them one at a time. :)

My recent article (about the ins and outs of latex) in Rebelicious magazine features photos of me in some seriously awesome latex. (Credits on the page) :D

Rebelicious Magazine Issue 1016

I’ve also had images back from one of the most beautiful locations I’ve ever shot in! During last year’s South Coast tour (I’ll be back in the area from March 12th-26th), I worked with Imagesse. He sent me some images from the various locations in advance of the shoot so I was very excited about it.
It was freezing so I spent most of the morning running around in naked circles to warm up before climbing around rocks, watched by perplexed sheep. After a lunch break (and a few minutes spoiling some friendly ponies), the sun came out and we climbed down into the valley amid gnarled trees like little moss-covered Ents (Lord of the Rings), toward a stream with stepping stones. As the sun shone through the tree line, I saw the tiniest rope swing. What an amazing thing to be able to visit the place and fly through the air whenever I fancied! One day…

Coincidentally, I was watching Sherlock the other day and could have sworn they filmed at one of the same locations! (It’s the episode called ‘Hounds of Baskerville’ if you’re interested. It’s a great show!)

Anyway, if a picture really is worth one thousand words, I’ll stop waffling and show you these… ;)

And this one’s more of an outtake, but I quite like it! I think it was part of my “get warm” dance routine, lol!

While I enjoy improving my flexibility, I do love shots where I’m curled up on things. :)

Keep an eye out for my next blog- I learned a lot this year, did a lot, and am excited about my plans for 2013. You can even be part of them! As I say… keep watching and subscribe by clicking on the link at the right if you’d like an automatic update! ;)

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I’ll speak to you very soon,

p.s. To the very kind fans who bought me a gift from my Amazon wishlist, thankyou so, so much. It means a lot to me that you thought of me this Christmas. I’m looking forward to reading the books and wearing the clothes, which you’ll see very soon. :)

Putting feelers out…

6 Dec

Hello! Happy December to everyone! :D

I’m keeping the promise I made to myself three years ago- that one day, I would look forward to Christmas again. Well, I have bought a lovely hummingbird tree decoration, am watching the robins bounce around my feeders and am actually getting excited when I hear my favourite Christmas songs. I’m also up to my ears in craft stuff as this year’s family policy is “make, bake, sew or grow”. ;)

Okay, winter stuff over…..

Photographers (and fellow models), listen up!

I’m considering renting a little villa, apartment or hotel room somewhere lovely and sunny for a week in January or February. My plan will be that it is spacious and bright enough to shoot in (I’m available for fetish, nude, boudoir, fashion, beauty etc etc…) and in easy distance of nice locations in which to shoot too. Other models, if you’re interested in sharing/shooting with me, get in touch.

Photographers, you’d be flying to the area and staying nearby (If I get enough interest, I’ll put together a list of local hotels/B+Bs)
Now, there are flights to Venice, Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon etc for around £30 and it’s off-season so hotels shouldn’t be crazy expensive, so this should be do-able in theory.
Estimated rates are about £180 for a half-day and £280 for a full day, but this is not set in stone yet-0 I need to do a little more research.

If anyone is interested in this idea, get in touch asap so I can get an idea of whether I can this could work or not. :)

I’ll leave you with some of my favourite shots of me in warm and sunny places (even if they don’t look so warm, lol!)

The Abstract

19 Jan

I’m having a quiet month at the moment while I work on writing, but I still have some shoots (and a fitting for a lingerie company!) coming up. I also made my debut on Beltbound on Sunday.

Writing-wise, I’ve just published an article with Univers D’Artistes and it’s all about abstract art-nudes. Go and have a look- you can see some of my favourite pictures there as well. :) (My next piece is going to discuss wherther genital photography can ever be artistic.)
I’ve been waiting to post that particular article on art-nudes because it goes so well with the rest of my photos from Allan Schaap (in the Netherlands)!  The first set (taken in a woodland)  are in a previous post HERE. I can’t say enough what a great time I had in Lelystad where we were shooting! It’s a part that was reclaimed from the sea and has a desert in the middle. It was such a surprise to see it after leaving the leafy woodland and reminded me a little of the ‘dead’ planet in Pitch Black!


See!?


I could see the desert a few feet away!


Washed here by the ghosts of waves…

And then we found a log!


There’s something very strange/eerie about this set that I like- maybe it’s because you can’t see my face. Definitely some of my favourite art-nudes that I have done- and I’d love to do more on a similar theme. Can you tell I have a ‘thing’ for abstract(ish) art-nudes at the moment?? ;)

This is Allan and Joyce photographing me photographing them photographing me…

p.s. Did I mention I communicated with The Greys? ;)
