Zig Zag productions are currently making a brand new Friday night entertainment series for Channel 4. The series is all about magic and will feature a brand new and very talented magician who will perform magic effects on the unsuspecting public in various locations across London.

They are currently looking for glamorous girls and boys aged 18 – 30 who would like to get involved in the programme as background artists.

Always a pleasure, never a chore. That is indeed our motto when it comes to work, particularly when one is fortunate enough to be commissioned to join Alan Strutt and Samantha Womack on a photoshoot for Hello! Magazine in Portugal’s hidden Heaven- Juicy Oasis. Home and baby of the iconic juice master, Jason Vale, take a look at the behind-the-scenes video we shot of the stunning photoshoot and for the full images and interview pick up this week’s Hello!





Victoria Beckham- the Spice Girl every mini diva wanted to be, the woman who took the surname of the man every human in their right mind would like to marry (David Beckham, just incase you didn’t know). And now, she is a household fashion icon with her own label adorned by not even your regular celebs, but A+ Listers such as the ultimate of pretty women, Julia Roberts.

I only have three Celebrity ‘would-like-to-meets’ and VB is one of them so you can imagine my excitement when I was lucky enough to work alongside Photographer Alan Strutt on a photoshoot with the lady herself for Hello! Magazine at the British Fashion Awards. Victoria was in very high spirits after just being crowned Designer Brand of the Year, and she even complimented my outfit (a Karl Lagerfeld TK Maxx bargain, but whatever). Needless to say, I walked away a very fulfilled little lady that evening, so much so I threatened early retirement until I realised since I was on a ‘winning streak’, my hopes of working on the next Vogue cover shoot with Adele could still happen… Two years later I’m still chasing that dream.

Anyway, bearing all of the above in mind, I am adult enough to admit I no longer like VB- I do not even love VB- I am actually a little (if not totally) obsessed with VB! Her style, her charisma, her ability not to smile but still look super cool; the way she carries her Mini Me, Harper around on her hip wherever she goes. And if this isn’t enough for me to convince you, I wanted to appear even crazier by creating a montage of the Queen of Fashion.

Mrs Victoria Beckham, your Fashion Bunnies salute you! x

Shoot of the Week: October 2012

Shoot of the Week goes to model Hollie Dowding because she wasn’t afraid to try something new…

Hollie Dowding Commercial Photoshoot with UK Model Folios

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!

Dream Team

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…
