I am a Drama and theatre specialist about to gain a degree in theatre studies. I am therefore really interested in any shoot that involves costumes and acting such as historical pieces or recreating for example scenes from films and paintings. I also love science fiction and am always ready to try things that are unusual. I prefer photography that tells some kind of story, or has elements of incongruity such as a Renaissance scene with a smart phone hidden in it or in an evening dress on an industrial estate. I also enjoy street photography. That isn't an exclusive list, just what I prefer. I am not usually interested in glamour or nudity unless I can see artistic merit. I don't find it particularly interesting and it doesn't make best use of my skills; anybody can get their clothes off, but its how that fits the scene and the story its telling that is important to me. If you think you have a stunning idea that tells a good story then please ask me. You never know I may love the idea.
I turn up on time and am reliable, I have a large number of costumes and can do my own make up to a reasonable standard. I like to interact on a shoot and will come up with lots of ideas. My job is to help you get the best shots you can and I will work hard to be sure you get them. I see this as fun but also work and don't like to waste time on shoots. I will maintain a professional attitude while shooting.
I have done shoots for a small boutique and modeled clothes at a fashion show. I have also worked for camera clubs, where I am happy to help newcomers and give them confidence. I am friendly and told I smile a lot.
I like to prepare for shoots and expect good pre shoot comms, so that we both know what the shoot will be about and I am properly ready both in terms of what I bring and mentally getting into the role. I am fully engaged with the photographer throughout the shoot and if necessary will maintain a working dialogue to be sure we both understand what is needed.
My husband usually comes to shoots with me. He is himself an amateur photographer and model. We are a package and if you look at my references you will see that he is a real asset to any shoot. He is also my driver, dresser and gofer. He will not ever interfere with a shoot, dictate levels or give ideas unless asked, that is between the me and the photographer alone.
I prefer to at least to get travel expenses and preferably paid, but that can be negotiated. If I like your ideas or think I will have fun then I am happy with tf. I am on ohter sites as Jessica Knight
