Finding a reliable, personable, professionally-minded model is hard enough – but if you’re lucky, one model in a million might turn out to be the one that inspires you creatively and is the one that is always given first option on any job that comes up. A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to find such a person, quite new to modelling at the time but with (as many of the best models have) a performance background.
Emilie Walt, who goes by the modelling name of Lady Emilie Rebecca Walt, has been as close to a “house model” as we’ve ever had at Fotofilia. She spends almost as much time at the studio as I do! She’s modelled for everything from one day beginners courses to film noir-inspired shoots, dance shoots and even two successful “studio days”. She has even been the studio’s avatar model for our facebook and twitter accounts pretty much 100% of the time.
Emilie is a rare creature. Creative, confident, conscientious – but also with a marvellous bone structure (a cliche, but true in this case), flawless complexion, clear bright eyes and the chameleon-like ability to transform herself into pretty much I ask her to.
And so don’t be surprised if you see quite a few pictures of her here – she’s hopefully going to be around for a while.
