Some of you might know me & loads of you won't.  I'm a model (very much a part timer these days) and also a writer.  I've written daft stuff to make my mates laugh, and serious stuff about modelling over the last few years.  I've finally got my act together and done a blog for models and photographers.

I hope it's a good mixture of funny and serious, positive and negative, newbies and experienced models and photographers, and a little bit helpful too.

Would love to hear your comments and feedback.

Also, this is very much YOUR blog.  It isn't a self promotion tool for my modelling.  So please tell me what you would like me to write about.

Ha funny, though White Knights didnt originate in and aren't limited to photography!

I don't know - I'd never heard the term before I started modelling. Does anybody know where & how it came about?

It's partly a business term for a friendly or "angel" investor. But historically, it's of course from the description of a knight given to protect virtue and be upstanding and so on - the White Knight.

Thank you!

I've heard of an angel investor and of course a traditional 'knight in shining armour'. But the term 'White Knight' specifically applying to sad, creepy blokes with a rescue complex? Do you think it's specific to model photography, or do other groups use it in a similar way? You've got me thinking now!

A model has just sent me a definition:

So it's not just a modelling thing then. I'd never heard it outside of modelling/photography.

I actually remember hearing it first in Uni, a guy I lived with was always the "white knight" to girls we knew. They hated it. These days I hear it most in MMOs, especially as my other half plays, she's gets it a lot.
