Dropping in to say ‘Hi’…


Hey everyone,

I haven’t blogged in a while (feel like I always open with that line) Just been busy buzzing around working, catching trains, being glued to my phone and making the odd picture ;)

I am just gearing up for my trip to Plymouth this week and you know getting all my bits and bobs sorted out, (that reminds me I need a new suitcase lol)

 Going to keep it short and sweet but leaving you with an array of some of my favourite images taken over the last few months…

So just dropping in to say …’Hi’…stay safe and hope you enjoy the images :)

Monaco meet Munich

A couple of weeks ago I went to Munich to model for Damien Lovegrove this was for 3 days of  Boudoir, Art nude and Studio lighting workshops.

I was initially planning to go to Munich a while back to work with amazing Radmila Kerl, a photographer who I met on Damien’s Fuerteventura workshop 2 years ago. Timing was an issue the previous years and we finally all came together again through facebook chat and a few messages here and there… and I was invited to fly out in March…great :)

It’s always exciting going abroad to model, especially with a team of people, there is a real buzz and excitement about working in a different country. You also feel a little bit anxious because you don’t know what to except from the people and you hope everyone likes you…however there was no need to worry at all as I couldn’t of asked to work with nicer people.

Even though I knew that I would be well looked after by Damien and Radmila, I didn’t expect to stay in such a wonderful hotel. The first 2 days of workshops we stayed just outside of Munich in the Leebreghorf Hotel in the Mountains. It was just heaven, right on the lake and over looking the most beautiful views of snow top mountains and hills. My hotel room was huge, the food was delicious and the staff  fantastic, just stunning.

The 3 days just flew and I want to say a big thank you to Damien for inviting me and for all your hard work, so grateful to you.

Thank you to the wonderful Radmila for looking after me and for just being an amazing person-hope to see you soon.

Thank you to beautiful Jessica for making me look good every day , I enjoyed your company so much and hope to see you again, maybe for Oktoberfest ;)

And to all the delegates who came and made it happen :) Thank you.

Sweet Female Attitude

Last year I worked with more women than I have ever done before. I do tend to work with men more often, there seems to be more of a male presences in Photography and more male photographers hire models from my perspective, which is fine I love working men.

However it is always a joy to work with other women in this industry especially ones who support each other, I think this is really special and something to be encouraged amongst young women.

There is some sort of stereotype that models are bitchy with each other, slagging each other off at any opportunity they get but that hasn’t been my experience at all in this industry, I am not saying that bitchiness doesn’t go on ( we all know it does from time to time). All the Professional models I have met so far in all honesty have been hard working, professional young women who speak highly of each other and generally get along. The girls work dam hard,they don’t have time to gossip and moan about one another, they are too busy working. Models also help each other out, I myself have recommended other models for jobs, given contacts to girls for work and vice versa models have helped me out, I just think it’s the way to be, if we work together we can achieve so much more. It’s so nice to meet the other girls, last year was great because I got to meet and chat to a lot more although this isn’t an often occurrence. Sometimes I just bump into a model when she is leaving a studio and its just a ‘Hi-Bye’ sort of thing. I consider it a treat to meet another girls and have a good chat with them, girls who do the same job as me, travel as much as I do and who are away from home as much as I am. Models are probably the only ones who know exactly how I feel in this industry. I suppose because we are all spread out and trying to tell our own stories and promoting ourselves that we are considered competition with each other, I never feel that way. Everyone is different and unique with something of the own to offer a client/photographer.

 Also working with more female photographers has been fantastic, though I treat male/female photographers the same. It is nice to be photographed by a woman from time to time. Women have a different approach to photographing other women and I feel as the industry is dominated by men it always a refreshing change when a woman takes my image. I know from my own point of view in my photography (http://carlamonacocrook.tumblr.com/), it can seem intimidating for a woman to take charge, pick up a camera and created her own work as well as promoting it in this male dominated arena.  That’s why I love seeing woman strive in this industry… it inspires me to do the same.

So I am feeling all ‘Sister’s are doing it for themselves’ aren’t I lol …(cue Aretha and Annie)

I am going to share the work of a lovely young talented Female Photographer called Jamila I worked with last month.

I love these lush images from Jamila.. she captures a women’s sexiness, vulnerability but yet the model still looks strong.. I love that… watch out for more of her work in the future.

Thanks for reading

Stay Safe
