Ivor Paanakker… and…. Game of Thrones!

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.

Photography: Ivor Paanaakker

Make up: Pascale Oeyen

Styling: Marike de Kan

Location: the Netherlands, 2015

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!

Ella Rose




(Ella Rose and me  by Ben Ernst)

William Blake Said "The nakedness of woman is the work of God". I cherish my body and I enjoy demonstrating the subtle sophistication of the human form, enhanced perhaps by leather, silk or satin, but always with flair and finesse.

I have modelled for some of Europe's most accomplished photographers, in some of the most admired nude art magazines, but with a background in fashion and lingerie modelling I also infuse my work with clever styling and imaginative elegance.

After Midnight with Joya, by Ivor Paanakker

Joya, with her exotic Mediterranean looks, and curvaceous body instantly appealed to me.

The minute I saw here I knew we had to try a shoot together. With roots from Spain and Algeria, but raised in France her mix pleasantly compliments my Greek Scottish origins.

She came to the Netherlands by train from Paris, and we shot three fully styled sets in a manor house in the North of the country.
