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!
Rumour has it Alan Strutt is teaming up with celebrity hair and make-up artist Gary Cockerill to shoot fashion and beauty models- judging by his trilogy set of model Saskia, we think you better get in touch NOW if you want to be a part of it! firstname.lastname@example.org

The Miss England 2011 finals are almost here, just one day away. Today sixty stunning finalists gathered at the Birmingham NEC to rehearse for what is the biggest event in the pageant world and UK Model Folios were there to capture it all exclusively to share with you.
This year UK Model Folios have been offered the opportunity to offer their services independently at the Miss England finals capturing those ‘what really goes on behind-the-scenes?’ shots and professional portraits of the ladies in That infamous evening gown. We advance our thanks to our amazing photographers Roy Strutt, Costas Constantinou and Antony Michael for their photography skills and support of UK Model Folios, and of course this event.
Today we wanted to share with you a quick glimpse of what happened at the rehearsals for the Eco Round- the opportunity for finalists to showcase their bespoke creations from recyclable materials. The rehearsals give them an opportunity to learn choreography and strut their stuff on the catwalk to a panel of highly credible judges who tomorrow evening will have the extremely difficult task of choosing the lady who will represent England for the year ahead and at Miss World 2011, which even more exciting for us Brits will be held in London.
Check out just a few of our shots below snapped by the fabulous photographer Roy Strutt and come back tomorrow for the result and first-hand shots of what happened at Miss England 2011!
Yes, it’s That shoot again. UK Model Folios teamed up with Miss England two weeks ago to shoot their top ten finalists for the Best Beach Body award sponsored by Sandstorm Boutique. As the finalists await the news of who has the most coveted bikini bod, the men’s mag circuit has gone crazy for the Miss England hopefuls. Check them out here on MAXIM and BabeMag.com.
Have a great weekend!
To add to yesterday’s madness in one of our London studios, OK! magazine and The Metro, as well as local press from across the country have joined the fandango and even, in OK! magazine’s case started their own online voting poll for who has the best beachwear body out of the Miss England top ten beach wear finalists…

Between shooting Coleen Rooney and Patsy Palmer for two separate issues of Hello in the last month, Alan has also been busy working with UK Model Folios shooting several campaigns with Miss London 2011 Rissikat Bade for diamond and watch specialist Mark J Walsh, Sytner MINI Canary Wharf and designer Karen Karmody. To add to this he also shot the front cover and inside spread of Miss and Mr Every Model, for the industry’s leading fashion and commercial model magazine, Every Model summer issue, released today!
With the calendar season fast approaching, Alan has a string of celebrity calendars lined-up to shoot which comes as no surprise after the stunning work he shot last year including another beautiful calendar for iconic model Kelly Brook and the 50’s pin-up inspired glamour shoot for Peta Todd. Both calendars were a huge success and went alongside the 12 other titles Alan shot all of which can be found at celebritycalendars.co.uk. As an extra treat for you all, UK Model Folios are teaming back-up with Alan in September to shoot calendars and portfolios in Thailand’s Koh Samui!
