Images!

As promised, here are some images to share.

I love that I still get excited seeing the results of collaborations, something I've done since my very first photo shoot :) To me there's just something unique about every shoot I do. Everyone has a different eye, a different idea on how to capture me. It's what makes every image special and no image is ever alike for this reason.

I remember occasional emails from the past where someone would pinpoint a specific image in my portfolio, where they felt they couldn't "compete" with what the photographer did. To me it shouldn't be about that, because that image was unique to that collaboration and the moment has passed. They do end up surprising themselves when they end up creating images with a different moment that are unique to them and the model. This is how it should be :) I don't like to imitate anyone else's images for this reason, because it was their moment and now it's time to have our moment :)

Ok, now I'm rambling. This was just in my head, so my fingers did the typing :)

Here are some pics from my last east coast trip, taken by Risque412. I just love his perspective, the way he captured the height of this location and how the eye is drawn through the image. He did send me the color versions but these just had to be shown in b&w. I think they just pop.

Hope you like :)

Cobwebs

Time to clear them away and finally get to a post on here.

Sorry for my disappearing act. My winter hibernation spilled over to early Spring and I've been using the time to catch up on various things, unfortunately not blog related though!

I'm back touring the east coast and Midwest next month, a 3.5 week tour. I always get anxious the week before, knowing how much I took on, but once I arrive I feel back in the routine and get focused on the trip.

I have so many images to share on here. I think it wise to share them before my crazy trip, so will get to that soon.

Hope all are well and still checking back here.

Images and updates coming soon!

God Bless.

Merry Christmas!!

Happy Birthday to Jesus & Merry Christmas to everyone!!

I hope you all have a great Christmas and new year!

It's hard to believe that another year has gone by. It's my tradition to do an annual snow nude at Christmas. Here are the nudes of Christmas past ;) I'll be sending out my new winter nude in the new year, so look out for it.

It's been a great year of travel, working with new and familiar faces. I couldn't do this without you all, so thank you!

Don't forget the reason for the season. God took on flesh and dwelt among us in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus, the savior, was born during lambing season. One of His names happens to be "the Lamb of God" and it was planned for Him to be born at the same time as the other lambs. Despite this we remember His birth in December. An ant can better communicate with an ant. God became man so He could communicate with us, teach us, but ultimately provide a way - the only way - for us to spend eternity with Him. Jesus was born to take our punishment for our sins. He paid the price in full and we are free from condemnation when we accept that free gift. He has offered the gift but we need to accept it. Romans 5:8: "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us"

So if He had decided to not come in the flesh then there would be no way for us to be forgiven. Amazing. This is the reason for the season.

Anyway, I hope you all have a great Christmas and I hope to see you in the new year!

Love & Best Wishes,

Kate* xx

In Memory of Thea....

I'm both sad and stunned to hear the news that Thea Coleman has passed away. She was a great person and a talented model, photographer, creative. It's very sad and she will be missed.

We first met in 2008 when we were both flown to the Bahamas for an assignment. We kept in touch over the years and ended up working together in Europe at the same event. I got to know her a bit, although we were not very close. I ended up working with her boyfriend in LA at the time she had begun focusing on photography herself, so I posed for her. We were hoping to work together again at some point.

She passed away on the 25th July. The police believed it was an accidental drowning in the bath tub. There are so many thoughts one can have about that. It strikes me as strange, because people don't usually drown in a bath, unless she had a few drinks which put her to sleep. Hopefully more details will be shared soon.

She was very talented and had a bright future ahead. Her work was already hanging in galleries in the US and overseas. She died way too soon.

Here are some of the images she took of me. She gave me a manicure for that first image, attention to the details, to get that perfect shot. The nude reminds me of an Edward Weston.

Gone, but not forgotten.

1 more....

...from one of my Europe trips. It's interesting that when you look through past shoots you always find images you missed the first time. Hope you like....



Missing Europe....

It's been too long since I did a Europe trip, mostly to blame is the fact I've been getting burnt out with travel and the flight out there is so long (11+ hours), but missing a lot of photographers over there, many who I work a lot with.

I was just in contact with a German photographer that I've been working with since 2006, both in Germany and he's been over here to the US also. He was the first overseas photographer I worked with when I first started modeling, and I would work with him a lot each year, so I'm missing our collaborations too. It's time for us to do a Europe adventure, I think, shooting in several locations, so I will keep you posted on that. I have some locations in mind :)

For those of you that don't know, I'm originally from England, so it's always good to go back to see family and friends over there, I just need to sort out a trip pronto. Though the photographers usually sort the locations and sometimes I offer suggestions, let me know if any of you have locations in your head that you think I should shoot in over in Europe, because they could end up in my portfolio :)

Here's a quick random selection of location nudes I did on one of my Europe summer tours. I have more on my website....

 

Image overload...

Expect to see lots of uploads still, as I make my way through images that have yet to see the light of day.

These are from my shoot with Ade, against that amazing wall of his. His space boasts several windows that bounce the right amount of light around to give a natural look for nudes. Fortunately none of his neighbors have painted their house a bright shade of pink, otherwise these images would not be achievable :)

Looking forward to our next shoot, we've been shooting together since 2007, so our creative collaborations go way back, he was one of the photographers that hired me on my first ever trip to NY, as it happens.

I struggled to pick between b&w and color, as usual, lol.

Here they are :)........................

Image Update...

I promised to update with images, so here are some from a previous shoot. These were taken by AJ Kahn, whose work I've admired over the years and recently had the opportunity to work with.

We were able to use his friend's parent's house, which was stunning, so much opportunity both indoors and out, though we just about caught the light before it faded. I wasn't feeling great that day, but managed to put that aside to collaborate on these :)

Hoping to shoot with him again soon. Here are some pics from that shoot......
