I'm Emma (but you can call me Ems), and I live in South Wales with my partner Ben and my two bunnies Flop and Bob.
Please make yourself a cuppa, take a seat, and have a read through my very important, will make Emma very happy, terms and conditions.
I work upto and including tasteful art nude and erotica.
I will not partake in the following:
Each level is to be agreed upon booking. I welcome work from amateurs and experienced professionals alike. If you have no references please make sure you are willing to book a reputable studio for us.
My time includes:
-My £30p/h fee - Minimum 2 hour bookings (discounts can be offered if I am booked for 4 hours or more)
-Make up application
-Driving if multiple locations are agreed upon
Want me to visit but you're not in my tour list? No problem! Just send me a message and I'll see what I can do.
You're more than welcome to come to my home in Ebbw Vale, I only ask that you respect it as you would your own, and remove your shoes at the door I'm also vegan, so I ask that you don't bring any meat, dairy or animal products. I'm friendly, chatty, and have a very dry sense of humour, and really like working with photographers who don't mind me playing music.
Studio and Location shoots:
I'm happy to work on location or your studio/home/boat/mansion/private island, will turn up full of beans and ready to apply make up, and work my bum off with people who are passionate about what they do and want to create beautiful photos. I don't drink or smoke and request I am in an environment where these aren't present. If we are on location and I am cold, and I can't stress this enough, I need to stop and warm up. Please don't ask me to do "one more" while you're wrapped in 6 layers of clothing and I'm standing there in my birthday suit. It creates unnecessary stress and I want to give you photos you'll love, I can't do
this while I'm imagining slapping you. I am human, and my health is paramount to me.
I have a large variety of clothing, ranging from waist training corsets, dresses of all lengths, to lingerie and heels, button down shirts, jumpers, to gowns and beautiful wedding dresses. I have one very simple rule with my clothing: If you'd like me to model something, and it comes from an animal, I won't wear it. This includes but is not limited to: Fur, leather, suede, silk, feathers and skins.
My figure and hair:
I have a curvy, well maintained figure and go to the gym and swimming 4-5 times a week. I also eat well and drink plenty of water. My hair is my boredom buster, it's been more colours than the rainbow so please, if you want a particular colour let me know with plenty of notice!
I have 4 piercings, one in each ear, my belly button, my septum, and 7 tattoos:
-A Simon's cat on each ankle ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=s13dLaTIHSg )
-The word "vegan" on my stomach
-The phrase "just breathe" with a dandelion, butterflies and birds on my collar bone going up onto my shoulder
-The phrase "be the change you wish to see in the world" with a world map on my upper back/base of my neck
-A pair of bunnies on my left wrist
-A pair of f-holes on my right wrist
These are very important to me as I believe the rapport with the photographer starts the minute we exchange emails. Any emails just asking my rates, addressing me as "hun", or one liners will be ignored, so will any messages where it is clear you haven't read my profile. The following information must be included in your email to me. This will help me save time doing my admin and will make my life a lot easier. It will also get rid of any misunderstandings on the shoot.
-Any ID needed
-Genres and levels
-If an MUA will be present
-Links to any moodboards/ideas
Yes, I do duo shoots, I love them! I have a few, very trusted and reliable female models who I can work with from Bristol and London and am happy to work up to nude with. I have worked with male models in the past, but this will be agreed on a case by case basis depending on the genre.
Postponements and cancellations:
I get it. Sometimes people get sick, sometimes your dog needs to go to the vets, sometimes your car breaks down, life happens, it gets in the way but don't worry, if you need to postpone just let me know another suitable date for you and if I'm free I'll happily move it. If a shoot is cancelled with less than 5 days notice, or 2 weeks for a tour, I will still require my full fee to be paid if another shoot cannot be found in
that time. I will of course keep you up to date and the fee will only be payable on the date we were supposed to be shooting.
Transportation and tours:
I have a car (beep beep!), and it has done some serious miles, I have traveled all over England, Scotland and Wales in it several times over and I love being able to just get in it and drive to the many amazing locations I've shot in. I'll happily travel for 30 minutes without needing any expenses paid. I LOVE going to new places, I have a passport (wink wink), and even though I am petrified of flying, want to travel the world and see as many beautiful countries as I can, and if you can offer me accommodation on my travels, it is very much welcomed.
I have an app on my phone that is almost always extremely accurate as to when my period is due. I will not work to nude for these 3 days. Please respect this. I will always let you know if you are requesting nude work if this will be a problem or not, and if for whatever reason it happens early or later in the month, I am happy to reschedule to suit you.
Yes, of course I do these. I have over 7 years experience in this crazy industry and I know what I'm doing (although some may disagree with me). I am happy to be left to my own devices or can take instruction if you have a particular pose you would like me to do. I never expect photos from a paid shoot, however if these are offered I would love to have a memory of our shoot together, so they are always welcome. If I love your work enough with your permission I'll stick it on my portfolio and show it off to the world.
Yes, I do these, and yes, if you'd like to ask if I'll work with you on this basis, feel free, but please don't be offended if I reply with my rates. I have a bucket list of styles I would like to do on this basis and am quite picky with who I would like to accomplish this with.
The shoot will be cancelled and full payment will be required under the following circumstances:
-Any touching unless explicitly requested by myself
-Any derogatory or inappropriate remarks about myself, my lifestyle or the modelling community
-No shows (and this will be followed up after 30 days by a small claims court)
-Any alcohol or cigarettes are consumed
We have a guest room! If we are around we'll happily put you up, but please bear in mind we are a vegan household.
Well, if you've made it this far, congratulations! You've stuck with me through all my rules and ramblings which must only mean you really want to shoot with me! I'm honoured! So send me a message and lets get planning!
Hope to hear from you soon...
