Backward thinking

17 Dec

It seems as though it was only a few days ago I was running around among Autumn leaves in as many countries as I could reach! Now that it’s winter, the sunsets are always amazing- as if the weather is trying to make up for the fact that we’re all so cold! I don’t mind the cold so much (especially as I’ve booked some time off modelling and can curl up in front of the fire) but the nights are a bit too short for me. I’m looking forward to Spring shoots already…

I have some fantastic travel planned for next year – you can keep an eye on my diary on the temporary page I’ve just added at the top next to my “About the Girl” page. ;)

I visited one of my best friends, Pirate Photography during my last Midlands tour and as always (other than talking about boobs, watching films and rocking), we shot some sets for Zivity. ;)
This is just a teaser for what could be one of my favourite of our sets- and you can see the whole set too! You don’t even have to be a member of Zivity- click on the link to unlock the other pictures
Of course, if you are a member of Zivity, you can get five extra outtakes from this set for ten votes- just visit my page and click…

The last one is a bit of an outtake- the wind blew my skirt up and I couldn’t keep it down! Every single time I lifted my hands, the wind started again and eventually we gave up! :D

As I need to go and pack for my last two shoots of the year (!) I’m off now. Speak to you soon!

p.s. If you’re feeling extra Christmas Spirit-y, I have an Amazon wishlist here. I send a return gift to anyone kind enough to buy me a present! :)

Returning colour

26 Sep

I’m embarrassingly reminded of the Addams Family: Gomez takes Morticia’s arm and remarks on what a beautiful night it is, to which she agrees- “oh yes, rain…”
I love Autumn- I love that hawthorn and holly trees now seem more berry than leaf, which makes me glad that the blackbirds have a fighting chance for the winter (I worry about the birds when it gets cold). I love the way the hills- yes, there are hills in Bedfordshire- seem to have changed into hundreds of pastel colours as I fly past on various trains. And, yes I love rainstorms. As long as I’m on my way back from a photoshoot and not leaving for one, I like to sit by a window- any window- with a hot foamy drink and watch. The stormier the better.

Right now, after the chaos of the late summer, I’m contented to sit and enjoy the season. There will be a little more craziness tomorrow as I pick up more of my worldly possessions, but for the first time in a long time, I am on my way to feeling myself again.
I was going to post some pictures of me actually wearing something but as I had these images in my inbox and they fit perfectly, well I’m not going to argue… Photographer Jamie aka here4art is doing a project about reality. Real women of all sizes, without the aid of photoshop. This is, of course an issue I’ve been interested in (as anyone who read this epic rant will know), so I loved taking part and can’t wait to see the finished book!
During the shoot I bounced around the studio, danced like a fool, leaped into the air and probably startled Jamie when instead of sitting on the chair I was given to pose with, I put it on my head, lol! :D Very fitting then, that I am now dancing around the room in a similar bonkers manner.

I stopped in my tracks earlier on realising what I was dancing to. Listen to the lyrics.

And the beat goes on…

Ok, I know many of you will be wanting the latest on the Shaun Colclough saga. There are no longer any grey areas- he has committed crimes for which he can be punished and due to this, there is very little I can now say in public. I hope you understand. If I can update, I will.
Thankyou to the brave girls who have shared their stories.

Anyway… life is going on. How did it become Autumn so quickly??

I like Autumn- having red hair, I get to do artsy nudesy things against a backdrop of flaming leaves, be photographed bouncing around the old parts of town in greens and oranges, snuggle up in coffee shops with festive drinks… and eat chestnuts! (The barrow in Norwich is the BEST).

I found Autumn in Europe interesting- it seemed SO much more colourful than in England, with bluetits and nuthatches flying around for me to see. It was on the haziest of mornings that I shot with Schaap Photography (and former model- now photographer-in-training Joyce) in a woodland lake in Lelystad, which I’m told was reclaimed from the sea!

The lake was, of course, freezing. Allan captured my “I can’t feel my feet” face before I went into model mode.

Ahem…

And we took some black-and-whites too.

More from this shoot coming soon- we also shot some abstract art-nudes (some of my new favourites, I think!) in a desert that is in the middle of Holland for no apparent reason! Here are Joyce and me in action:

Allan’s lovely wife Lynne was also kind enough to do my make-up for this shoot! Having had some stressful moments in Amsterdam, Allan restored my faith in photographers!
He also left me this very nice reference:
I was approached recently by an English model, Roswell Ivory, who is also a friend of Ivory Flame, to ask if I was interested in doing a shoot with her on her upcoming tour of Europe. Of course I jumped at the chance to do a shoot with this talented and versatile model and we managed to plan a shoot for the 28th of October. Roswell took up my offer to stay over the night before because I wanted to make an early start in the morning to make the most of the soft light. I had also invited Joyce along for the shoot and she was also pleased at the chance to do a shoot with Roswell. We set off early in the morning and were able to find the location with little trouble having marked the spot on my GPS previously. We started off doing sets in the forest and then moved onto the beautiful pond nearby. Although it was pretty chilly, Roswell had no problem doing a few sets in the water, apart from a few squeals when she waded in ;). Being very aware of possible hypothermia, we shot quickly and allowed Roswell to warm up as often as possible. Who said that the model has an easy job? Being the professional that she is , she never complained once! We did a few more sets in the surroundings and moved on to the desert area which is a short drive away. Roswell was very surprised to see this phenomenon, a desert area right in the middle of the woodlands. Joyce and I did a few sets amongst the trees and in the sand and I decided to do a few art shots after seeing the wonderful shapes that Roswell was making. Following my directions I was able to capture some amazing images. Roswell is a total pro and I will certainly work with her again next year when she returns on her 2012 European tour.

I’m looking forward to a shoot on Wednesday in and around Norwich- The weather is due to be lovely and sunny! There are leaves, old buildings, cobbled streets and Christmas lights at dusk!
