"So this is a long overdue reference and I wanted to be able to sit down and write everything out properly! Apologies in advance for the short novel.I first had contact with Belle after she contacted me regarding some advice on her portfolio, from there we spoke about work and what not in comms she came across as someone who had been modelling for years, wise beyond her years you might say.On meeting her we instantly clicked. I was then invited to stay with her family whilst touring Scotland and was made to feel so welcome and at home I couldn't have asked for anything more... I suffer with anxiety more so when travelling and I can honestly say I didn't experience it one bit because I felt so comfortable and relaxed! It was then we got the opportunity to shoot together. Belle has a very strong look, beautiful eyes and a gorgeous strong nose so our looks work together and we really produced some striking portraits in a very short amount of time. What I noticed working with her is that she is sure of her angles and expressions, she can easily emote feelings. She was professional yet approachable and cared about getting results.
I was delighted then when Belle contacted me regarding getting involved with her first model holiday in the South of France, I jumped at the chance and the rest is history. As before her comms and details were spot on, it made it so much easier for me to arrange my logistics and get to where I needed to be. Throughout the trip she was a competent and courteous host, always making sure everyone, including model and photographer, were happy... She had so many creative ideas and locations for the photographers really delivering a stage for the photographers to great amazing images. I absolutely loved working alongside her again and we created some absolutely stunning duo images. We shot so much variety and I truly believe she is a very talented and versatile model who understands how to pose her body and face, but also pose to gel with another model. She has sheer elegance and a maturity that you don't often see. I now consider Belle a good friend and would certainly recommend her to others, photographers and models. She will deliver images you will be proud of! "
"She is most awesome fun, bubbly, super easy to work with and looks stunning. I'll most definitely sort something funky with here soon and look forward to more shoots. She be good, you should book her"
The beautiful Belle came to stay with me during her South Coast tour and we managed to squeeze in a couple of hours' shooting as well. Both in the studio and out, Belle is polite, professional, chatty and warm; a considerate house guest and a brilliant model. She accepted my quirky ideas with enthusiasm and helped me create some images I'm really happy with. I absolutely recommend this beautiful lady and hope she comes to visit again soon!
What can I possibly say about Bella Eve that hasn't already been said? ...We went back to the 60's and recreated some of the beautiful images and photos that have inspired me all my career (think Mr DB and John French) For four hours I was transported back to the 60's and was photographing "The Shrimp" with what the Rollieflex's were made for.
Sure Belle Eve is beautiful and a master of her profession ... but above that she has real grace, poise and a lightness of touch in every pose and move.When you have a perfect location, natural light, Bella Eve and a Rolleiflex there's really not much I need to do but push the button.With 20 sheet of large format and 4 rolls of film - its pretty sure there going to be some Bella Eve (Jean Shrimpton) 60's magic in there.
Thank you for making a photographer very very happy - Dave
"This shoot had felt a bit like a long time coming. Eve and I had been touch in the past and meaning to work together for a while. Everything went great, she was even 15 mins early and we had an easy time chatting and getting on.She was down for tapping into some of my more off-the-wall ideas and I found we had a really easy rapport and worked together no problem. She was able to adapt as the shoot kept adapting and changing, as shoots I do are often likely to and I think the results turned out really well. Happy to say, work with this cool lady."
"Eve is always a pleasure to work with. She was professional throughout the shoot, and performed well, even with an audience! Eve has a calm and relaxed attitude, and a great sense of humour. She is great at posing herself as well as following direction when required. Certainly will book this lovely lady again and highly recommend her to other creatives!"
"Belle Eve is an excellent model. She is relaxed and fun, happy to pose herself if required but also takes direction well. Highly recommended."
"Belle Eve was on my WTWL so once I saw she was coming down this way, I jumped at the chance to organise a shoot. I'm glad I did. She is a joy to work with. She communicated well before the shoot and even though travelling down south on the day was at the studio waiting. She has a fabulous look and with a great collection of items in her suitcase, we managed to complete a number of sets in the short time we spent together. The time just flew by and other than the obvious of her having a great look and modelling ability, she is great fun to be around. If you get the chance to work with her then just do it. You won't regret it."
"Another shoot with the wonderful Eve. She was well prepared as usual, chatting with me & Saskia in the days leading up to the shoot about ideas and what to bring. A pleasure, as always."
"I had my second meeting with Eve today. As before she was a joy to work with, beautiful to photograph and I can't wait for our next shoot."
"Eve was a joy to work with, prompt replies to messages, turned up early (!) and was friendly and hard working. She's clearly learning fast and I'm looking forward to working with her again soon
"Had my second shoot with the BEAUTIFUL Eve today...first model I've shot twice and she was every bit as FAB as I remembered. You could not wish for a more amazing model to work with...just stupid of me to only book two hours. Spent the whole time just bathed in natural light and loved every minute...her new darker hair look is brilliant and we had soooo much fun! Shooting her again next month and you should too!"
"Eve was an absolute star on our shoot earlier today at Natural Light Studio...she's a really lovely person, so easy to talk to and very down to earth.As only my second model shoot, I was quite nervous, but I had a great shoot with her, really relaxed and she was very patient too. She's an absolute pro, needed no direction and we had a good giggle. Definitely want to work with Eve again and would love to do some location work outdoors too. Eve was superb from start to finish. Fingers crossed the shots come out well."
"I'm a Belle Eve-er! Another shoot with Eve and even though we've worked together before, the pre-shoot comms were still excellent and very professional.She is a joy to work with and goes all out to get the shot you want.Her experience is showing now and she is happy to offer tips and suggestions to get the best out of the shoot.Can't wait to work with her again."
"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone"For all of them, look for Eve. Another great shot with Eve - this time with a group. Great patience and she hardly stopped to draw breath.!"
"Eve is a pleasure to work with. Her pre-shoot comms were excellent and she turned up early for the shoot. This allowed us to get started straight away.I shouldn't really use the word 'work' as she is so easy to get on with and has a great work ethic. It's almost like shooting an old friend. She seems to have some sort of Benjamin Button thing going on as her attitude and ability to work well with a photographer belie her age and experience.So book her up, treat her like a lady and don't forget the chocolate fingers "
"My second shoot with Eve and since our first shoot yielded an FPI, I had a lot of pressure to make this one as good as the last - nah, not really!Eve is a pleasure to work with, she has a great look and vast wardrobe and is very attentive with her posing, the time flies by so quick when you are working with her, she is most definitely highly recommended!"
"It's hard to top what has already been said about Eve, I can only echo the others' sentiments. Eve is a rare treasure, she is chatty, friendly and easy-going but at the same time committed to producing the best for each shot. I had great pleasure in laying down the foundations and then letting Eve's effortless grace and beauty do the rest. I cannot recommend this young lady highly enough and I welcome the opportunity to shoot again in the future."
"Had my second shoot with La Belle Eve and what can I say but fantastic!She has a great look, good comms pre shoot and is helpful and productive during the shoot. Couple all that with the fact she is a good laugh and easy to talk to.If you are thinking about working with La Belle Eve just do it! You won't regret it!"
"Worked with La Belle Eve for the first time on Friday. Great pre comms and arrived on time with outfits as discussed. No complaints despite the wild weather and got some great shots. Would definitely work with her again. Thoroughly recommended to other photographers.
"Loved shooting with mucho talented Eve. Her contemporary youthful look and fun personality meant she was ideal for my style of shoot. To the unitiated some of my ideas can appear a bit crazy but Eve embraced the craziness and was happy to try them out. As a result we created some really cool images together. I particularly loved Eve’s chameleon-like quality, with her looking equally fab whether shooting classic beauty or more avant-garde concepts.As well as being a great model Eve is a lovely girl and super easy to work with. Sooooooo……... If you can only afford to shoot a few models next year make sure Eve is one of them!Thanks Eve and hope to see you back soon matey x!
"Just returned from dropping Eve back at the station for the next leg of her latest tour after a full day of shooting.Pre-shoot comms had been clear, concise and cordial. With a chance to chat on the way to the studio we quickly seemed to gel and a rapport was struck before we even got into the studio.With brews sorted and the first few looks decided upon we began our marathon session that was conducted at a leisurely pace and covered fashion, lingerie, and headshots under a range of lighting set ups. We worked freely, chatting away with banter and mickey taking aplenty. Oh and lots of coffee - where does the girl put it???With regular on back of camera checking and a full run through of the images taken at the end of the session we both agreed that there were plenty of strong images in the various sets.As we parted company I asked Eve to give me a shout next time she's in the area so that we can build upon what we've achieved today.
Van Morrison may have sung about his brown eyed girl but I'm very happy to recommend this green eyed one.
