I've also spent today shooting, and there are a few remaining photos to come from shoots I've done since Christmas, but this pretty much wraps up 2010. As I've said before, it has been a great year for my modelling work, and I am excited about continuing with my modelling in 2011 and creating exciting new photos. Thank you to all the wonderful photographers I have worked with throughout the year, and all the models I have communicated with, in person or online. There are some superb models out there, and I like to think that we support each other in our own way when we can, through virtual means or real ones.
For next year, I have some ideas for collaborations featuring other models, as well as a list of photographers I've always wanted to work with. I would also like to socialise more! Modelling can be a lonely business, in that as a model, you rarely meet your colleagues. I would love to meet more creatives through work, but also on a social basis, just to spend time with like-minded people! Hopefully next year will bring more merriment, as well as the very serious matter of creating art. I'm going to travel more in 2011, so with any luck, this will mean working with photographers I've yet to collaborate with.
I will be taking bookings further in advance, as of now onwards. In the past, I've tended to book shoots last minute because I didn't know what's around the corner. I've also tended to publicise my location and travel at the last minute, too.
I will now be taking bookings for the next year, anywhere in the UK (and further afield, if there are photographers abroad who would like to work with me - I'm always happy to travel!). If you are a photographer, and you are reading this thinking that you would like to work with me, please email me expressing your interest. Let me know some potential dates (or a time-scale) and your location, and let's make some plans! From now on, I will be working around you, rather than waiting until I'm travelling to an area and keeping you informed, tell me when you would like me to travel to you, and I will do so. I'll then notify other photographers nearby that I'll be around.
Areas I'm planning to travel to (in no particular order) in 2011 include:
Scotland (all areas),
Hertfordshire, London, Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Midlands are all fairly convenient to one of my two bases (Chesterfield or St Albans) and I can work from there any time.
If your area isn't on the list, please let me know, and I'll come to you! If your area is on the list, let me know when you'd like me to visit! If I'm on tour in your area, I'll be offering discounts for TFA (Time For Accommodation).
I'm offering home shoots from my base in Chesterfield, and I also know several locations nearby, if you would like to travel to me in Derbyshire. My flat in St Albans is not suitable for home shoots but is very convenient for several studios in London.
So, please do get in touch. I'm excited about what the future holds, and I hope to hear from you soon.
And, most importantly,
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
