Recent Press: LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE GIRLS

UK Model Folios are bowled over by the press their work has received globally in the last couple of months. Since working with some of the UK’s hottest model talent, the world’s largest website IGN.com and fast-emerging new online men’s site babemag.com have paid close attention and approached us to feature a very cute selection. It seemed they couldn’t avoid us after so many websites have been plugging in to our amazing models and featuring them for their readers again and again.

Happily added to the list are the very prestigious Daily Mail, News of the World and The Sun!!! It seems someone loves us particularly as The Daily Mail even went to such lengths they sent a Photographer to Thailand to capture the first snaps of our seriously hot Lady Angie in her bikini!

So not to blow our own trumpet or anything but it kinda looks like we’re the people to be around?! If no then maybe a proper look at the features will change your mind (see links below)

UK MODEL FOLIOS DOES EVANGELINE MILLER

Last week we were lucky enough to have the first round winner of the calendar girl 2011 competiton, Evangeline Miller all to ourselves for a whole afternoon. Ironically the gorgeous lass had already booked a portfolio shoot with our fabulous Julia Underwood and was ecstatic when Julia agreed to shoot her prize winning photoshoot for July’s issue of Feature Girl too.

When Evie originally approached UK Model Folios to book a shoot, we showed her all of our photographers that we believed best fit her requirements. As she had already shot with a couple of them, including the phenomenal Joby Rawlins, she decided to take on a whole new modelling challenge and conquer the edgy look- step forward Miss Julia Underwood. As many of you will already know, Julia is the next big thing. Not only does she shoot regularly for lad’s editorials, Front and ZOO but she is also a hit in Denmark particularly with M! Magazine. After a quick peek at Julia’s work, Evie was booking a shoot quicker than you can say, “UKMF” and the rest is… well below…

After a quick cup of tea and a catch-up with the team, Evangeline sat down ready to be pampered by our fabulous in-house Hair and Make-Up Artist, Kayla Silvester. The two ladies had a consultation to discuss Evie’s look and what concepts they wanted to achieve. In the mean time, our star stylist, Coco Minnie began raiding through the piles of beautiful clothes that Evangeline had brought with her to compile her looks. As Evangeline’s overall requirement for the style of her shoot was ‘Front-esque’, Coco Minnie picked out outfits to match the criteria. The first look was a cute denim crop top and a pair of vintage sport’s shorts set against a white wall. The emphasis was purely on Evie and she set the photoshoot on fire immediately with her hot to trot model tactics.

It’s always a good idea to bring a lot of outfit options with you for variety, but once you’re on location make sure to pick out key items and avoid using too many accessories.

Being on a shoot can often be very nerve-wracking at the beginning; especially if you’re modelling! This is why we always recommend (particularly if you’re interested in having some glamour shots done) that you gradually work your way down to lingerie and/ or topless shots because not only will you feel more comfortable, but you will also have become accustomed to the photographer and crew, and feel at ease around them.

“The great thing about working with UK Model Folios and Julia is their ability to make you feel so comfortable. They’re also such experts in photoshoots and model tuition that the directions they give you from styling, hair and make-up, to modelling, just work.”

Fay Bacon always stresses the importance of the five main portfolio shots to models. She carefully selects outfits, explaining to the model the relevance for each and how they’ll work with the shot. She believes it’s a waste of money if a client walks away from a shoot without at least three-five decent images for their folio that can work toward bagging them that job.

The five most important shots:

  • Headshot
  • Full-Length Shot
  • Half-Body Shot
  • Laying-Down Shot
  • From Behind shot

As the shoot progressed Evangeline became evermore confident and started posing for her lingerie and implied topless shots. Evangeline hasn’t done any topless modelling as of yet, but as a very clever tactic has agreed to bare all in Thailand for her fans, if she wins the RedHotGlamourGirls Competition. So if thats not a reason to vote for her then we don’t know what is?!

Seven outfits later, it was time for Julia to shoot Evie’s Feature Girl spread. UKMF’s Fay Bacon is also the Editor of Feature Girl and had already planned a concept for the shoot. Set against a flourescent pink wall, Fay teamed a simple purple thong with sexy stiletos and Evie posed away. At the end Fay interviewed Evie, quizzing her on how it felt to win the first round, her life as a model and what winning the 2011 calendar competition in Thailand would mean to her.
