On a trip to Glasgow earlier this year, I found out that a good friend photographer Kevin Berry was also in town and staying in a lovely hotel. So what could I do but call in some friends for hair and makeup and shoot a kick ass editorial, which was published in the print edition of last month in La Plus Belle Italy Magazine http://www.laplusbelle.it.
Id like to share those images with you, because they are great, so here they are!
Photography concept and styling: Kevin Berry

I've some exciting new images shot last year (but only just received) by Ivor to show you. We always produce top results when we work together, and these images are so different to our past work. I just love them.

And, in other news, as some of you may know. I've been trying my hand at acting recently, and have had some success. Last week I was screened in Game of Thones, just a small part, but in my favourite TV series. For those who watch it, its episode 7 of series 6. The scene with Theon Grayjoy.
I also had a part in a Dutch film, Beyond Sleep. It is out now. It is in English, and a very beautiful film set in Norway based on a famous Dutch novel. I can highly recommend it.
I hope that you are enjoying the summer, if the rain ever stops, Ill head to the beach!
I am delighted to show these lovely images with you, taken by John Tuckey a few weeks back in England. John specialises in vintage style monochrome images. He has a very unique precise way of working which leads to these fantastic results. I am just in love with these, they have a film noir - cinematic 1940's feel to them. I hope that you also like them. My hair and make up was provided by Chez Titine Salon & Boney Jack Barbers. John's website is here and you can follow him on Facebook here.
Happy New Year!!
I hope that you all had lovely winter holidays. I would like to wish everybody a very happy 2015.
I have had a fantastic start to the year. I shot for four days in beautiful Thailand for a book project (back stage snap below), and I have had three magazine covers!
Playboy Germany has a scheme where Playmates are given cards to sign for their readers. They write to Playboy with a stamped addressed envelope requesting signed cards, Playboy Germany sends the envelopes on to me. They have sent me a big pile of the A6 cards which bear my photo.
Roland Pum is an Austrian Based photographer. We met each other on the Andreas Bitesnich workshop, where I was a model and he was a student (although he was already an accomplished photographer when he attended this workshop). After the workshop we arranged a shoot close to Vienna. He made a fantastic background for the shoot, all from wood (although it looks like metal), and after we shot he burned the background so that it could not be used for any other work.
