How it works

Download the app from GooglePlay and your PlayBabe is delivered to your screen. You must keep her happy and healthy. Tap on the icons and watch your progress in the ‘Healthiness’ and ‘Happiness’ status bars.

Too many gifts and attention is just plain creepy, but not enough will leave her fed up and grumpy. However, get the balance right and your PlayBabe will perform sexy dances, take a jog on the spot in her teeny hot pants, stretch out those divine legs and even blow you kisses. The ultimate aim however, is to collect enough points to reach level two and watch your Playbabe strip off in to her choice of favourite underwear.

Distribution, compatibility and availability

PlayBabe is now available for £1.50 in the UK and priced accordingly across the rest of the world on GooglePlay

The application is available for all touchscreen Android handsets running 2.1 and above. The current version has not been designed for tablets and these devices are not supported at present.

The PlayBabe apps are developed by Alfmax Ltd, a UK-based application development in collaboration with Celebrity Publicity Ltd

MAXIM UK COLLABORATION

Megan-Fox-Maxim-Magazine-Cover_UKMF

We are extremely excited about our recent collaboration with MAXIM UK. The huge brand with a subscription base of 750,00 in the UK alone have chosen UK Model Folios to shoot their main page articles after working with them on Miss England’s Best Beach Body. The four lucky newcomer models Rissikat Bade, Jessica Linley, Naomi Young and Hollie Dowding were co-selected by the MAXIM Editor and UK Model Folios to be the first in showcasing our amazing photographic opportunity and will follow the likes of Megan Fox, Nicole Scherzinger and Eva Mendesto who have also appeared on MAXIM.

MAXIM UK were ecstatic when Alan Strutt agreed to shoot the models for UK Model Folios and as expected he did not disappoint. A great friend of UKMF, Miss London 2011 Rissikat said about her MAXIM shoot, ‘I was so excited when I was told I was one of the four lucky ladies to shoot with Alan Strutt for MAXIM. The atmosphere in UKModelFolios studio was as always very relaxing and happy. It was amazing to work with Alan again, as well as shooting with the beautiful pageant girls, Naomi Young and Jessica Linley. The Harlett lingerie, which was provided for the shoot, was stunning and I just can’t wait to see the results.’

A special thanks goes to Harlette Lingerie, another exciting collaboration of ours- we have recently linked up with Harlette to shoot the stunning TV personality and model Melissa Reeves 2012 calendar wearing the exquisite Harlette garments. We were also ecstatic when they agreed to lend their sought-after and very luxurious pieces for the MAXIM shoot and as expected, the models were blown away by the elegant yet tres sexy lingerie- even the Maxim Editor himself commented on the one-off Harlette peacock lingerie set saying, ‘hot knickers, very hot!’

Another special mention and appreciation goes to the fabulous Sandstorm Boutique– we completely heart their fabulous swimwear and after using many of their super-hot pieces in Thailand just had to use them for MAXIM too.

The articles will be published on various occasions over the few months starting with stunning model, Hollie Dowding. Keep watching to read and see our work in action!

Alan Strutt- They All Want A Piece of Him and We Know Why!

 

 

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! For more information on this trip or for further information on Alan please contact us.

We’ll leave you now with a few snapshots of Alan’s most recent work for UK Model Folios and some inspirations for your 2012 calendars…


CALENDAR SEASON HAS BEGUN

The temperatures are rising in London Town and our gorgeous ladies and gents cannot wait to whack their hard-earned abs and pecks out, and on to the front of their very own 2012 calendar.

We know you probably think it’s rather early to be working on your calendar already but if we were to remind you that we are half way through the year (where has the time gone?) with less than three months until calendars hit the shelves you may think twice. And so without further ado, please get in contact now if you would like to book or seek further info in on shooting your calendar in the UK, sunny Ibiza or Thailand???!!! info@ukmodelfolios.co.uk

MELISSA REEVES: OUR PAGEANT QUEEN

Pageants are a grey-area of modelling- are they useful or not?

After a debate UKMF say, “yes” although, in our opinion there are some pageants which do extort money from its contestants with no beneficial outcome and as a result give other reputable contests a bad name. On the other hand, pageants do encourage you to integrate with fellow contestants and make friends, which in turn can boost your personal confidence- something crucial if you want to stand out and be a success. Ultimately, if you want to use a pageant to gain exposure in the show biz industry then ensure the pageants you enter show signs of being able to help with this. How? Well, you can always email us direct for our opinion and guidance info@ukmodelfolios.co.uk or take a look at our check list below:

  • Do you have to pay money to enter the pageant?

  • Check out the sponsors of the competition. Recognised sponsors means a recognisable and respected pageant.

  • Google the pageant and read forums/ feedback. Guaranteed if people have had bad experiences then you’ll hear about it

  • Check out press on the pageant. What sort of exposure has it received?

  • What actual benefits has the pageant given to the contestants?

  • What are the prizes?

  • Liaise with point of contacts from the pageants and evaluate their response. Are they kind? Helpful?

UKMF do work alongside beauty pageants, the number one being Miss England.

Last year our star photographer, Alan Strutt and Director Fay Bacon judged the final of Miss England and the final heat of Miss Every Model to discover Kayleigh Hewitt. Both have been invited back as judges this year and due to the pageants huge success, Every Model Magazine has launched Mini Every Model (for children) and Mr Every Model, both of which Fay will be on the panel for too. Former winner of Miss Every Model, Lance Corporal Kat Hodge went on to become Miss England 2009, represent the country in the Miss World contest hosted in South Africa and model for huge lingerie brand La Senza- she said in her handing over ceremony of the Miss England crown: “Its hard to put in to words how much being Miss England has meant to me. For the rest of my life, I will always be thankful for this year and the opportunities it has brought to me. I just want to be Miss England forever!”

Aside from the obvious pleasure of working with such a highly respectable brand like Miss England, UKMF love discovering new talent at the pageants. Since working at the finals last year and spreading the UKMF love amongst the beautiful women, a lot of them came to us for photoshoots and advice on furthering their careers not just in modelling but also TV presenting and acting. Our involvement also set us up with Lady Angie Bowness/ Sinclair, former Miss England, and wife of Sir Clive Sinclair. She is a favourite in The Daily Mail and lucky for UKMF she chose us, and the fabulous Alan Strutt to shoot her first calendar. Furthermore, the gorgeous singer/ model from Liverpool, recently crowned Miss Galaxy England, Melissa Reeves worked with us on her 2011 calendar. Since our shoot she has gone from strength to strength across global press and is a huge fan of beauty pageants. To celebrate her win and before she jets off to America to compete in the final of Miss Galaxy International we caught up with Melissa to get her view on pageants, what they’ve done for her career and of course, her views on UKMF.

Happy reading,

Fay xx

Melissa_Reeves_Miss_Galaxy_England

Hello Miss Galaxy England, how does it feel?!

Ha, it feels AMAZING!!! I’m thrilled to have won.

What tips do you have for other aspiring Miss Galaxy winners?

To just enjoy the experience of taking part in the contest because it is a pageant you can actually enjoy taking part in. It is very organised and run by good, genuine people, which isn’t always the case.

· Why do you think beauty pageants are a good idea?

They are great for building confidence and self esteem. Even if you don’t win you will gain more experience and become more confident. Also they are good for meeting new friends.

· As a young model why do you feel it’s important to have reputable companies such as Celebrity Publicity and UK Model Folios to support professional models such as yourself through your career?

There are agencies out there that will just rip people off and take advantage of you but Celebrity Publicity and UK Model Folios help guide you in the right direction through your career.

· You recently worked with CP and UKMF in Thailand – tell us a little bit more about your trip away?

The trip to Thailand was fantastic. It was amazing to work with Alan Strutt and UK Model Folios because he is such a well know photographer, and I love UKMF’s services so to work with them on my calendar was perfect! We all became like a little family when we were away and I still keep in touch with all the other girls.

· Were you nervous about being away from home for so long?

I am used to travelling around and not being at home but I was a bit anxious at first travelling all the way to Thailand with people I didn’t know very well and people I had never met before, but everyone was so nice and we all got along really well so it was an amazing experience overall.

· How did Fay and Alan make you feel comfortable during your Thailand trip?

Fay and Alan made everyone feel comfy  by just being nice and were very understandable, like when the sun kept getting in my eyes when I was shooting, they both could of got angry with me and told me to get on with it but they didn’t- instead we would move somewhere else. They became more like friends rather than people I was working with.

· Were you pleased with your final thirteen pictures for your 2011 Calendar?

Yes, I LOVE them all!

· Which is your favourite picture and why?

August is my favorite picture because I love the hair and make-up, angle it’s been taken from, and the way it captures the location.

Melissa_Reeves_August_UKMF_Calendar

· Overall what was the highlight of your Calendar trip?

It’s hard to pick one highlight but I think the most memorable thing was when we went out to party on the island and see some ‘Lady Boys!!’ It was scary to think all these absolutely gorgeous girls were actually men!!

· What was it like working so closely with Celebrity Photographer Alan Strutt and UKMF’s Fay Bacon?

Amazing. They are really down to earth, lovely people. They felt like family by the time we left the island.

· Why would you recommend shooting your calendar abroad to other models and pageant contestants?

Because shooting a calendar abroad is far more exotic so the pictures are going to look MUCH better and also going abroad beats any studio experience. It’s just amazing.

· Do you feel that because of your choice of career often people will judge you before they’ve even met you?

Yes, definitely. People always assume that I am snotty or thick! They also think that you love yourself because you take care of yourself.

· How do you cope with being in the spotlight?

I thrive on it 🙂

· Will you be working with UKMF/ CP again this year?

Yes, without a doubt! I am a HUGE fan of them! xxx

LEAH LINTON: FIRST SHOOT AND I’M SIGNED!

Like many models, Leah in the past has struggled to find both a reputable portfolio and modelling agency, however after she attended a casting for Celeb Agents and met UKMF photographers Roy Strutt and Antony Michael she felt very confident that this was the agency she wanted to sign with, and the portfolio company she wanted to use. Since UK Model Folios work closely with Celeb Agents shooting their clients, we offered Leah an exclusive package and now she not only has a fabulous portfolio but moreover has been signed to a management she is very confident will lead her in the direction she wants to go in. As always we like to get some detailed feedback from our clients and report their experience back to you. And so without further ado, please read on for Leah’s experience with UK Model Folios.

For more information on booking a shoot with Roy Strutt or joining an agency like Celeb Agents, please contact us now info@ukmodelfolios.co.uk

Hi Leah! How are you today?

I’m fantastic, thank you!

Tell us a little bit about yourself

Well, I’m a full-time glamour model from Essex. I’ve been off the scene for a while but I’m back with a bang and ready for action! I hope 2011 is my year!

What encouraged you to book a shoot with UK Model Folios?

I attended a casting for Celeb Agents and photographer Roy Strutt was on-hand to take a few snapshots of the girls, I really enjoyed shooting with him and after I was selected by the agency to join their books I saw it as the perfect opportunity to work with Roy again, and decided to book him through UKMF.

How easy was it to book a shoot with UKMF?

I found it very straightforward to book my shoot because just as extremely professional everyone is there, they are also really friendly and easy to talk to.

When your portfolio next needs updating will you use UKMF again?

I will absolutely be using UK Model Folios when my portfolio needs updating. Not only did I really enjoy my shoot with them but also I found myself not wanting it to end!

Why do you feel you got excellent value for money?

In this industry there are a lot of people who want to exploit young models like myself so when you find a great company to work with it’s a blessing as its very frustrating when you have spent a fortune and you’re not happy with the end results. UKMF really impressed me and I was so happy with absolutely everything – from the service to my final images.

How did you find working with our photographer, Roy Strutt?

Because I had previously shot with Roy I found him really easy to work with. Often female models find it a bit intimidating working so closely with a male photographer but with Roy this definitely was not the case! He is such an experienced photographer and extremely professional. This automatically put me at ease and allowed me to love the shoot.

What was your favourite thing about your shoot and why?

I’d say the overall experience combined was the best bit and of course my fabulous new pictures!

How did you decide to have your hair and make-up styled?

I always know how I want to be styled but this time I decided to have three different looks to show my versatility as a model.

UK_Model_Folios_Leah_Linton

UK_Model_Folios_Leah_Linton3

UK_Model_Folios_Leah_Linton_Roy_strutt_2011

Why did you like your hair and make-up?

I loved my hair and make up because the hair and make-up artist listened to me and created the looks I wanted.

Did you get on with both the photographer and the hair and make-up artist?

I got on extremely well with Eva, which I was really happy about – let me tell you; there’s nothing worse then not getting on with a photographer and hair and make-up artist!

Which is your favourite picture and why?

I love all of pictures but I’d probably say the headshots were my favourite, even though I had really natural make-up (which I’m not used to) I still felt and looked amazing!

Overall, what was your favourite thing about the UK Model Folios service?

I’d have to say the fact that everyone is so friendly, helpful and professional.

Why do you feel it’s important for young models like yourself to have a professional yet friendly service such as UKMF to guide you with your modelling career?

It’s very important! There are too many people in the industry just concerned with making money and how we feel as customers to their service is overlooked but UKMF actually care. They take the time to listen to you and ensure you’re getting what you want for your money. It’s very difficult to know who to trust in the industry but I know I can trust this company and as a result have already gone back to ask for their advice and help on other areas of my career. They are VERY experienced in all areas of the celebrity model market so for young models like myself, you couldn’t hope to find a better company.

If you could describe your experience with UKMF in three words which would they be and why?

Fun, relaxed and professional.

Finally, feel free to add any more comments on your experience with UK Model Folios.

I’d like to thank the whole team for such a wonderful experience. xx
