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 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? ;)
