I was in Venice recently for a few days, on an amazing workshop led by Faye and Trevor Yerbury, a husband and wife photography team who I have been working with for many years.
Here are some of my favorite images taken during that trip by Trevor and Faye and by some of the students at the workshop.
As well as being an accomplished photographer, Faye is also a skilled hair dresser, here she fashioned an art deco style wig for me for a different look.
I have discovered today that I have some Paypal issues.
Apparently anybody viewing the Paypal page to join Wonderland (my lovely members section) from a US IP address rather annoyingly gets the Dutch language Paypal page.
I have spent all day on the phone to Paypal and browsed all of the on line forums and it seems to be that this is a glitch in the Dutch Paypal system and a few other people are also suffering from this problem and have not found a solution.
Well hello 🙂
I returned late last night on an Easyjet flight from four glorious days of galivanting in England. Well, OK, the work and company were glorious, the weather was gloomy for ninety percent of the stay. It rained, rained and rained, and I had my first ever experience of shooting outdoors in the rain though, which was interesting to say the last.
These fine artistic nude images incorporate the female form with the hard, cold metal of brass musical instruments. They were shot by Stephan Brauchli in a studio close to Basel in Switzerland during a very fun-filled shoot.
He has kindly let me share them with you on here, and also agreed to make this small back stage video for me to use here during the shoot. This is my first try at ever playing a brass instrument, I thought I did it rather well :).
My name is Zoi. After many years as a fashion and lingerie model, last year I made the decision to also model artistic and nude modelling. As a fashion model I always felt that someone else was pulling the strings and wanted to develop my own creativity. I have not looked back and found success came to me easily in this field and relished the freedom of expression that nude modelling offered. For me it was the purest and most liberating form of modelling that I had ever experienced.
I have worked with well known and respected artistic nude photographers and also for popular artistic nude sites. I enjoyed the shoots very much, probably because of the great photographers that I met, but was disappointed by some of the other content that was available on the internet sites.
As sites of this genre became more popular, I noticed that the standard and artistic merit of the content declined and that the profits were benefiting large media corporations, not to the photographers or models who work hard to make the images, perhaps explaining the quality of the images.
That is what drove me to create this site. On this site you will find nothing lewd, overly graphic, distasteful, vulgar or demeaning. You will only find well styled, artistically motivated photography shot and styled by some of the best in the industry.
It is, it seems to me, natural for both man and woman to gain pleasure from observing the pure beauty of the naked figure. We were brought to this earth naked and there is no shame in responding to one of our most basic instincts.
It is also my hope that artists and photographers will be able to gain inspiration from my images.
More about me
- I am Scottish-Greek
- Zoi , Ζωή( z-o-EE) means life in the Greek language
- I studied civil engineering at university, modelling part-time. I was a fully qualified civil engineer but after a year in the job I was bored. I missed expressing my creativity so went back to working what I love best – modelling.
- I read a lot. My favorite genre is fantasy. My favorite authors are; Tolkien, Neil Gaiman, Philip Pullman and Terry Pratchett. I also subscribe to the National Geographic; maybe that makes me a bit of a geek!
- I love to be outdoors in the countryside.
- I dont watch much TV, but when I do I enjoy direction by Tim Burton, Quentin Tarantino, Peter Jackson and Terry Gilliam. And Game of Thrones!
- I love to cook (I make a great lasagne!) and drink nice wine.
- I am a Scorpio.
- I drink Earl Grey Tea, with one small sugar and a splash of whole milk in the mornings.
