Mel has been applying to go on one of my Cyprus photo-location shoots since I started them in 2012, the problem being at the time of casting for these shoots I was looking for a new and inexperienced model. This year I did the opposite, I gave Mel first option to be my established / experienced model for the first week and I am very pleased that I did. Mel and I go back a long time together, in fact I shot her very first art nude sets some years ago so know each other well.
Mel was totally at home on location spending her time when not shooting topping up her unblemished all over tan, in front of the camera Mel just comes alive, going from pose to pose effortlessly. Happy to have a go at all ideas and suggestions however silly they seemed, knows where the light is coming from to produce the best effect and utilising her vast experience of shooting on location
Add Mel's fun character and nature, interest in the culture and sites of Cyprus and her ability to "fit in" with all around her and here you have not just a great model but also a really nice young lady! Thank you for all your efforts Mel and some great images as well.. Best wishes Paul :) xx
Have just done my 4th shoot with the wonderfull Melissa. She is absolutly brilliant and i just love working with her We have already made plans for our next 2 shoots including a trip to the south of France. Everything about her is perfect and we got so many amazing pics its really hard to choose what to put on my portfolio
Had my 1st shoot with Melissa 26th sept 14, melissa is very Professional, friendly and gorgeous.Mel needs no direction and also willing to accept direction. Makes the photographers job very easy. Stand out model. Highly recommended to all photographers.
I did another shoot with Mel this month....she is becoming my favourite model, but just lives too damn far away to be my muse. As usual, communication was clear and reliable. An all round excellent model and a pleasant person to work with.
A great apartment shoot in Manchester with Mel today(14 August), excellent communications before the shoot, very easy to work with and posed well with very little direction, I would highly recommended Mel to any photographer.
