Thanks to the amazing Nik Sargent http://www.purestorm.com/inpictures with his super photographic skills and editing, portfolio image of me, which is a tribute to Titian's Venus of Urbino, painted in 1538, but with a contemporary twist, has won a 'Highly Commended' in April's SWPP International Image Competition in the Digital Art Category.
I do get asked to supply up-to-date pictures of myself for various media publication articles - full photo credit always given to photographer and MUA. Especially lately, since my modelling story has gone World-wide.
Love the outdoors...good walker, if there are locations that need a pair of walking boots to get to them!
I know there are some great amateur photographers and semi-professional photographers out there would love to shoot with, but I fully appreciate they do not have the same deep pockets or budgets as top professional togs, so will happily negotiate modelling fees accordingly.
Happy to travel...Travelling expenses outside of West Country required and of course, first-class accommodation.
Pamela Witney-Simms of The Best Image Photography commented:
'Suzy is very professional in her approach to work, being meticulous, punctual and thorough. In my dealings with Suzy, I have found that she is capable to directing a shoot to obtain the best shots for the assignment, but is also happy to let the photographer have a free say in respect of creativity. Suzy is stylish and forward thinking and can compete with all age groups.' (Worked many times, independently to PS)
Lynsey Adams BA (Oxfordshire) commented:
'Although our shoot took place indoors (due to rain), with the absolute minimum of equipment and only available natural light, Suzy was able to quickly recognise the best locations to pose and sought out backdrops and colours which would compliment her own stunning colouring and what she was wearing.
She is very professional and experienced, knowing exactly where and how to place herself to look at her best in humble indoor surroundings with no props, and as a result we achieved some simple but charming and very natural lifestyle images.
Suzy is friendly, modest and unassuming, and an absolute pleasure to work with. I look forward to a time when we can perhaps plan something more ambitious in a different location.' (Shoot arranged independent to PS)
Good Housekeeping Magazine said for June 2012 - London studio shoot...'Hi Suzy,
It was lovely to meet you on the shoot, and we are delighted with the pictures.
With very best wishes for being such a generous interviewee and model'
Jules, photographer said 'Suzy Monty is the sexiest OAP in the UK. Body of a 25 year old and a face like an angel'. - Many shoots, with subsequent publications of same, over the years, organised independently to Purestorm.

'Suzy was so great to work with. She is extremely resourceful, once I told her my ideas, she suggested lots of venues, even contacted a few herself. She kept in contact throughout the whole process. She arrived early, prepared with lots of extra accessories, jewellery, change of clothes, theme appropriate props she'd found in a shop and even a backdrop. She's organised, relentless and really friendly. Suzy is a natural, she's great in front of the camera, thinks up all sorts of poses by herself too! I'm looking forward to our next collaboration. Thank you Suzy!' MJ Photography.
