Reminder Secure

Thin on the ground

I am looking to improve my work this year and that means, in part, getting a good MUA onboard.

Now, here's the problem I seem to be coming up against.  I live near Peterborough so south Lincolnshire, north Cambridgeshire region and there appears to be a real shortage of MUAs in this area.  Is that just a geographical oddity or are there a lot less MUAs out there than I had assumed?

So, my question is this, is there a secret MUA land somewhere on the web full of happy, bouncy MUAs just praying for a hapless photographer to chance along so that they can rescue him from his mediocrity and catapult his work into the stratosphere?

Cheers

I'm wondering whether it's something to do with where the training for beauty therapy can be found.  The prestigious courses are found in London; and I know a few can be found in places like Windsor, Birmingham, Nottingham.  So perhaps the wannabe MUAs all float over to where they study, and then end up living there?  Just a theory, and I could be completely wrong LOL.

Would appreciate information as to where a simple, not too expensive, basic photo mua course can be had in Brum.

It depends on what you class as local, I will travel anywhere and class Lincoln as fairly local as I work there often.

As said above the main area for training near by is Nottingham as far as I'm aware there are no training schools in your area, hence the lack of mua's, this must be why I have quite a bit of work in the Lincoln area.

You may be right Squodge.  I plan to check a couple of the local colleges on Monday to see what they cover so maybe that's a way forward.

Claire, we shall have to  have a chat about rates then, although Deeping is 40 miles south of Lincoln.

Cheers

Hi,

I'm not too far from Peterborough either (Leicestershire) and would be happy to let you have my rates, if interested.

Regards.

I actually live in Peterborough and studied as a makeup artist for 2 years at the local college i am now working towards a degree in Makeup Artistry and Special Effects in Bradford as it was the closest to Peterborough as there are very few places that arent too expensive. I still come down to Peterborough regularly so if you are interested in my work please dont hesitate to contact me.
