What can one say that has not already been said. Anita is the perfect model and muse, full of ideas and clever tricks.
I had the great pleasure of a second shoot with Anita at Space Studios St Albans.
Anita is not only a beautiful lady but great fun and a highly professional model. Fantastic outfits and wonderfully easy to pose. A good eye for a photo and able to suggest as well as to accept direction.
Anita was the first model I've shot since venturing the other side of the lens & I'm absolutely over the moon with the results! Really nice, down to earth model who's extremely patient with novices like myself and is more than willing to offer great contributing ideas and pose herself accordingly! Thank you very much Anita! Highly recommended! Top notch :)
I don't really know if it's necessary to add to Anita's feedback, as rather classy pictures of her have been floating around for a few years, but anyway she provided a delightful day of photography and cream teas combined with tour guiding and fairly magical control over the weather (well, till the grey storm clouds in late afternoon). She is entirely charming and helpful company and maintains her outfits and makeup throughout. This while clambering over logs on a dressing gown, to pose elegantly nude, undaunted by early spring weather, broken camera, dog walkers... and I can't say how relaxing it is to have someone else doing the driving and parking. Anita does seem to have a calm soul as well as looks that seem to invite you to raise your photographic game. The day was truly unhurried, productive and enjoyable. And at least some of the time, her style transported us into the '40s, with a touch of lipstick and a flick of the hair.
its been over six years ago that I worked with Anita and she was a excellent model then and finally got to work with her again at manse studio and once again she is a superior model to work with see is friendly and chatty . she brought outfit that I required for our shoot and she added some ideas of her own to the shoot and we achieved some excellent images for my portfolio once again anita thank you for a lovely two hours I wont leave so long to work with you again I would highly recommend Anita

A few months back, I received an email from Anita asking if I would be available to work with her towards the end of February as part of her tour of North Wales. At first, I wasn't sure what to make of the enquiry - this was contact from a model who, as she says on her portfolio, has worked with Vivienne Westwood, Selfridges, Stella McCartney, Vogue, Fashion TV and many many more big names and now she wants to work with lil' old me?! I almost responded along the lines of "Thanks, but I don't think I'm producing work just yet to match your portfolio's high standards..." however, I snapped out of it, took the enquiry as the compliment it was intended as and we agreed on a date and time. This as it turned out was Anita's first trip to North Wales so I wanted to try and find some stunning locations (with thanks to Kestrel for a few recommendations along the way), rather than opt for a studio shoot. Fortunately the weather was kind to us (probably the best day of the week, in fact) without needing me to resort to ritualistic sun dances in the back garden, scaring the neighbours' dogs and cats.
For me this was a nice change to shoot in my neck of the woods and not needing a 4-6am start in order to get to places for 9am. Having stayed at a local B&B the night before, I met up with Anita at sunrise as she was finishing breakfast and we set about planning the day's activities from thereon in. We covered a range of styles in our shoot from window portraits, B&W lingerie, location fashion and location nudes at a derelict, disused quarry and dabbled with bridal fashion at an Anglesey standing stones site.
Anita is a true professional, works fabulously with or without direction staying aware of her surroundings and lighting on location, possesses a slender figure (great for flexible figure/art nude work), stunning beauty (for every kind of work), hard-working, eager, 'down-to-earth' friendly and a joy to work with, offering helpful assistance, reassurance and little tweak suggestions along the way. North Wales in February is hardly St. Tropez, but Anita braved the cold, overcast and drying conditions without any outward complaint.
The time flew by (which is a good sign, so people say!) and even after a full day's work, we still have many ideas on the table ready for next time and I hope we have an opportunity to visualise those ideas together in the not too distant future. Thank you for an amazing shoot.
