Shoot of the Week goes to model Hollie Dowding because she wasn’t afraid to try something new…
It’s daunting for anyone stepping away from their comfort zone and for Hollie, a model that has always been used to shooting lingerie or pin-up , this week’s shoot was a challenge, not because she wasn’t capable but because of her own demons of whether her look was right.
Hollie is a loyal client to UK Model Folios and always comes to us to seek advice and update her portfolio- it was our absolute pleasure to help her conquer her fear of stepping out in to the commercial modelling world and try something a little more edgy and grunge.
We hope you like the transformation because we LOVE it!

As always it has been a very busy and creative last couple of weeks for UK Model Folios but even by our standards, pure magic was created when we collaborated with celebrity photographer Alan Strutt, celebrity hair and make-up artist, Gary Cockerill and Britain’s Next Top Model Live Stylist, Joey Bevan.
Five females and two male models, together we created a dream team experimenting with a variety of looks including ‘paint box’ style make-up and eighties styling.
Take a look at some of our images…
Our shoot of the week goes to Alan Strutt and Niami
The Italian born- half American model blew us away when she came to a casting at UK Model Folios.

We were ecstatic to be invited by Alan Strutt to work with him in Barbados on snapping the wedding vow renewals of television presenter Ulrika Jonsson and her husband Brian Monet. It was an amazing four days spent together with the couple’s family and crew in the stunning resort of Apes Hill, St James. We are honoured to have been a part of this shoot and assisted Alan Strutt in capturing a truly magical day full of love and happiness for Hello magazine. Congratulations to Alan for his outstanding photography once again!
Anna Fowler came on board the UK Model Folios ship in July 2010- after spotting her images of the actress Emma Rigby we knew she could bring something different to our table. Back then she was reinventing a style, which had lost its way- making women look beautiful for them, as oppose to what others find beautiful. Her biggest transformations have been that of glamour models, whereby she has stripped away the typical ‘Nuts’ poses and styling to produce classic beauties with a high-end fashion look.
It’s been great to watch Anna grow as a photographer in both style and adventure. She has found her niche and creates the most beautiful images time and time again, having that true photographer nack that enables you to make the client look the best that she can in a photograph.
The thing people may miss, unless obviously indicated in a photograph is a story behind it- the following images are of those UK Model Folios clients shot by Anna that really stand out to me as falling in to that category. The sweet, shy pageant girl wanting to break in to modelling but not too sure whether she has what it takes, the heroine that escaped a life of domestic abuse, the fiesty Russian hotty with an insecure interior and the glamour model wanting to say it’s not just my body that is beautiful. Looking at the pictures I wonder if you’ll be able to decipher which story applies to which picture? The beauty is probably not and that’s what makes a great portfolio image.
