Cancellations: Please note I am very understanding, however I cannot afford for last minute cancellations without remuneration. Therefore if a cancellation is made within 72 hours, I will still require my fees to be paid in full. A cancellation within one week will require 50% of the fee to be paid. I do apologise about this, but cancellations leave me with wasted time and dates I could have otherwise filled. Smile
Thanks very much, and don't hesitate to drop me a message for a chat about shooting/ ideas, bookings, anything at all Smile

Hi, I'm Zara, Pleasure to (virtually) meet you¦.. :D I am a full time professional model, muse, portrayer of emotion, mood & character, posing addict! :D Modelling is my passion and obsession! I'm very lucky that it is also my job! I hope my enthusiasm comes through in my work.:D
I have been modelling about 14 years now, as a result I have learnt alot over time and am now very experienced. Although of course we are always learning. But I am very confident in front of the camera and aware of the lighting, angles, posing to suit what we are trying to achieve etc. I find the most important thing on any shoot is communication. Talking about what you may want to achieve and /or feedback at the time of shooting I find so helpful, as then I know what you're likes and dislikes are and can adapt so I am doing the right thing for your style and preference :)
It doesn't matter to me how experienced a photographer is, as long as you are keen & interested, I'm happy to experiment, help, guide or just do as I'm damn well told :D ;) I am very easy going and adaptable in any circumstance. I am no diva! .... I am down to earth , hard working & non scary (despite the rumours) :D I like to have fun on shoots, but i'm also very professional, reliable and usually on a bit of a mission! (but only because I want to ensure we achieve something great from our shoot) :D In terms of styles, I model everything from fashion/ editorial, beauty/ hair, commercial, bridal to lingerie, nude & erotic. Stills, video, catwalk and shows. I do not do adult. There are a few other things I tend not to do just out of preference, some fetishy things, some cosplay, or anything I may find a bit too cheesy if you get my drift. But largely I'm very open minded and up for experimenting. So don't hesitate to make any suggestions or share ideas, nothing is ever too silly or weird to mention, and I'll never be offended :) I also do commercial & advertising work - I have another website for my commercial work and am represented by a few commercial model agencies. If you are looking to book me on a more commercial basis or for a commercial client, please drop me a message and I can guide you to my other site, which is completely work safe.
Over the years I have modelled on possibly a couple of hundred photography workshops with many different teachers/ trainers/ photographers on lots of styles, genres, in different countries, different lighting, themed, location, etc etc! This has also helped develop my lighting knowledge, so I can work better with the light and am aware of exactly what it does where. Although alot of this just comes from years in front of lights and seeing the results. I say all this, as I hope that my experience can make your shoot with me easier or feel more like team work, than maybe you having to direct so much. I want to be easy to work with, not hard work! :)
Please take a look at my references here: https://purpleport.com/portfolio/zara/references/ .... to see other peoples views on working with me. I have about 500 positive references. I have never had a negative reference (fingers crossed) and have never "no showed"! I have a very strong work ethic and behave professionally (although maybe not in my sense of humour! :D )
I can do my own hair and makeup to a very good standard and have a HUGE collection of clothes and accessories for shoots.
Note: My older images I had breast implants, my newer images....I had them removed about 2 years ago :)
This is my main website.... www. zarawatson.co.uk .... containing my portfolio, including videos etc.
Rates & Travel:
My UK rates are :
£90 - 2 hours // £120 - 3 hours // £150 - 4 hours // £210 - 6 hours // £280 - 8 hours .
I have my rates here publicly as I like to show fairness, that these are my flat rates for everyone and everything.
I usually travel by car as I drive and find it easier for getting to these quirky little studios in the back of beyond! I do charge for travel, but it is just standard mileage, or a train/plane ticket. :)
I am available for bookings worldwide.
Location available to shoot from in London:
Up until the end of June 2017 I have an old ex meditation centre to shoot from full time in Kensington, London. It is an old commercial building, that is to be re-developed. So is an old kinda scruffy quirky place. It has a large studio room with loads of backdrops and many other interesting empty rooms. I have an album of images here... feel free to check it out. https://purpleport.com/portfolio-image-album.asp?id=30908
I have just bought a house in Kettering, near Northampton. I will be available to shoot from here also maybe end of this year (once I have bought some nice furniture to go in!) :)
I do regular 1-1 photography training sessions throughout the year with Stephen Perry www.stephenperry.com ... we are very flexible in when and where we do these. If you have any interest in this also, give me a shout anytime. :)
