So after living in North Wales for a couple years I've decided it's time to move back to England
Considering I live In the sticks I've still had quite a lot of work however it has also lost a lot of work due to travelling time and costs.
I'm moving to New Brighton, Wallasey at the start of June... Could I get more jobs living back in England ??!
Never a dull moment

It should increase your opportunities as booking people from a distance I find a pain even if the model is doing the travelling. I would much rather book a local model who can arrive shoot and dissappear in a day with comfort.

What I cannot answer is how competitive your area you are considering is. There will be access to a lot more photographers but are there too many models? Most of the models who seem busy seem to have more than one base, or are centrally based in the UK or change their location every year or so.
If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

Nah you are not moving into a population which would gain you more bookings.

I would think that Manchester or Birmingham would be better but I'm not suggesting that you move because I suggest it, that would be stupid, you need to make a considered judgement, and I'm not sure you have yet.

I'm moving there as my sister lives there... Not for work fully ... But it does cut out the apparently most expensive track of Wales to Chester and seems to reduce price of travel considerably

Well make sure you move for the right reasons, there are more reasons to moving than just modelling... Hopefully that doesn't sound too patronising.

I have a different attitude to most re travel and location. I'm based in Belfast, flights are cheap, heck why not get someone to jump on a plane for £50 return.

hiya, i wish you well with your move. Moving near to friends and family is always a bonus. Its even more of a Godsend should you become a working mother and they can occasionally help you out with childcare when you need to work unpredictable hours or travel half way across the country/world to a job and you can reciprocate with help to them when you are free. Work is all over the place, also remember that any one of your friends could relocate at any time, maybe emmigrate to a sunny tax free haven l.o.l. But with social networking, everyone is brought to your doorstep so to speak...so why worry!
