So we’ll start with a few of new models I was fortunate enough to work with for the first time and hope to work with again next year.
First we have the lovely Romahni Rose all the way from sunny Australia. As my last blog post was about her I’ve had to rustle up a few new images of her, but that’s no hardship. Hopefully she will pay us a visit again in 2014.
The next model who was new to me was the striking Anita De Bauch. Anita has been modelling for a few years, but for some reason I have never got around to working with her. Sadly we only had a relatively short shoot, but it was most enjoyable and extremely productive, and I’m sure we’ll produce more great images next year.
And the beautiful Carla Monaco, who I had two shoots with, hopefully the first of many.
There are other great models I worked with for the first time as well, but sadly I can’t include them all! And of course there are models I’ve worked with before and hope to continue to work with in the future, again sorry for those who were missed out :-s
So we start with Chrissie Red making a trig point look tiny.
Kayleigh Lush on a sofa!
I also consider myself fortunate to have worked with some super models who I won’t get the opportunity to work with again, either because they are no longer doing this type of modelling, or other reasons such as leaving the country!
The stunning Fredau.
And the wonderful Katy. Normally I post images of her gravity-defying elegance, but I thought I’d go for one in a field near an ancient monument where we’d just done some shots.
On the gong and letters after my name front I was most pleased to gain my MPAGB distinction in April and EFIAP Bronze in May. While filling in the form for my next distinction I worked out that in the last 18 months I entered 38 salons and was awarded 25 gold medals, which still amazes me and is in no small part due to my collaborations with such great models.
The latest successes were FIAP Gold Medals in the Cork International, Ireland, and Exposed, Slovenia, both with Circle Of Beauty with Holly, taking that image’s tally to 5 golds in the past 10 weeks!
But we’re only as good as our last image, so they all mean nothing now, and I need to start producing more images. I’m in the strange situation of having no shoots booked in the future, but I’m sure that there are some new and current models that can remedy that :) Thanks to all the great photographers and models I’ve worked with and a happy and healthy New Year to everyone.
