The Urge To Migrate

21 Dec

I haven’t left the country in nearly six weeks. Usually I tour internationally at least once a month and though I love to return home and make a cinnamon-scented duvet nest over the Christmas period, I’m now planning next years tours even further in advance. (It’s one of my New Years Resolutions but that’s another post)…
For photographers (and other models who would like to meet up), this blog is my current plan for 2017- including studio days, discounts and travel.

If your location is not listed or marked as ‘considering’ and you would like to book me, please get in touch! I plan tours according to demand and if I don’t know you’re interested, I can’t arrange anything. 🙂

Discounts
I am running a 10% discount on shoots for January/February that are booked before the end of the year. If you would like to start 2017 with a bargain, get in touch asap with your location and any enquiries.

Short notice
You are welcome to book as far in advance as you like but I understand that you cannot always know what you’ll be up to in four months time! So… if you prefer short notice bookings, get in touch and I will add you to a ‘first refusal’ mailing list. If I still have days free within a couple of weeks of my tour beginning, you will be the first to know.

Events
Fantastic value for money, and a location ready and waiting. I have a few very exciting studio events coming up next year:
Joel Hicks’s studio: February 11th/12th and April 22nd/23rd
Hangleton Lane: March 25th/26th*.
*My first ever SHIBARI DAY– March 26th, with a very experienced rigger. (3 slots remaining)

In the near future, I may be spending more time writing rather than modelling so if you are interested in booking me while I’m travelling around, get in touch and lets plan something fantastic!

Now, my last blog about Helmut Newton got some attention! 😉 Some people agreed, some didn’t but I like making people think and starting conversations. I searched my computer for some unseen pictures that evoked the fetish/fashion style in the few pictures of his that I like and in terms of mood and outfit, I have found some! 🙂
John Duder is hands-down, one of my favourite photographers to work with! He and I get on like a house on fire (though I’ve never understood that expression) and it seems that every time we work together we create something completely different! Here’s a shoot that’s a little bit of a throwback, with one of my favourite designers- Fabulously Fetish.

Happy New Year and here we go again!

27 Jan

Happy New Year, everyone!

As you have probably guessed from my stubborn silence here, I’ve beeen a busy lady but maybe not in the expected way: I’ve gone all zen and am working on sorting my nutrition and stress levels out. A week ago I treated myself to an appointment with skin nutritionist Juliette Scarfe (Bareskin Beauty). I had a treatment session, a consultation and was sent home with a lovely little pack of lotions and potions that smell gorgeous. I’ll happily join the army of models that recommend her and cannot wait to put some of her ideas into practice.

I still have trouble switching off- I feel strong and motivated when I’m answering e-mails, booking shoots in the diary, sending written work to publishers. Ticking off points on a to-do list has been my main reason for getting up for too long and I am rediscovering how to enjoy the creative process for itself. Something shouldn’t only be of value when it is over.
I’m returning to the mothership tomorrow for four days of making beautiful things. I have some lovely material and enjoy sewing- by hand especially! Definitely looking forward to losing myself in pretty textures and stitches.

Right now, I’m looking at a messy garden. In the Spring, I’ll go all Mary Lennox (The Secret Garden) and tidy/nurture it but for now, there are things still sleeping there and it’s best to let them hibernate. So I’m writing a few mini-stories while watching the tufts of grass blow about. Maybe if I go really wild, I’ll do a poem. 😛

Speaking of poetry and other things, I had two features in Cloud Orchid magazine recently! December’s issue had a poem by yours truly in it and January’s issue has me on the cover, with a six page feature inside (pages 56-61)! My biggest news of the year (seriously, if I get any bigger news this year, I’ll eat my hat) is in there too… 😉

Here are some more pictures of the location. Isn’t it beautiful!? I should have got a picture of me with Josefine- people said we looked spookily alike. Maybe next time… 😀

Tiny gingerbread house on the edge of a forest!!! I nearly fainted with joy and just *had* to pose in front of it…

I’m going to sign off now as I have to go somewhere scary but hopefully tonights surprise dinner will make things okay.

Speak to you all soon- and thanks for sticking with me through my absence.
