The Netherlands.

Busy, busy November!!

Not only was I involving myself in lots of shoots in areas local to my hometown of Southampton and spending a week modelling up in London, I was also lucky enough to spend a few days working in The Netherlands, my first shoot abroad!!

It may not seem a big deal to most, and most models of whom have been modelling for as long as I, have already jetsetted around the world ten times over! But for me, it is a great achievement. It is the first time I have ever been well enough to model in another country – hurrah! Now I have some serious catching up to do as far as travelling is concerned!

I stayed in Marc Vreenegoor’s wonderful studio in Ter Aar, Holland. The studio is awesome and so modern. It also has a very clean and comfortable area for models to stay. Marc really made me feel at home. He got me chocolates and has an espresso machine too. Win!

We got so much done on our shoot and achieved many different styles. I had so much fun trying on lots of different outfits and creating a variety of looks with Marc to make the shoot a versatile as possible…

The next day I shot at a fancy, shamantzy hotel with both Marc and another awesome photographer, Lars Bemelmans. The hotel room was African-themed and there was much shooting potential. I think we got some great shots with a mixture of boudoir and art nude. I had such a hoot working with Marc and Lars with both their very different shooting styles – it definitely kept me on my toes!


Here are a few taken by Lars:

On the last day I had a splendiferous day to myself, wandering the streets of the beautiful city of Amsterdam, enjoying the galleries and museums (and hot Belgium waffles with melted chocolate!)

Hopefully it won’t be long before I return!
