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?
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.
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.
Part of the job is travelling I have gone to Scotland and Wales for shoots before! If you need a good creative mua let me know I don't want to be doing anything else so more than happy to travel all over the uk within a days notice if I'm free x
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.
I am based in Kent but am willing to travel practically anywhere within the UK and abroad for the right job so if you need a friendly, reliable and creative artist for any hair or make up job including SFX just drop me a line
