Magnolia is a joy to work with an incredibly photogenic and well toned for someone in their late sixties. In fact she'd beat most people in their forties on those fronts. I enjoyed photographing Magnolia and found her creative, fun and totally reliable. I highly recommend her. She will make a very special addition to any photographer's portfolio.

The arranged shoot with Mel was brilliant, her communication is honest without pretension and her timekeeping was spot on. Her excellent ability to perform as a model in front of not one, but three camera men and with a range of poses. I would recommend Mel and would shoot with her again, Thanks Mel.

Had a shoot with Melanie last week and found her to be extremely flexible not only in her ability to hold difficult positions but in the timing for the shoot. Her communication before the shoot was good and her understanding of my requirements was also good. She has a very good range of poses and needs very littler direction. Dont be fooled by her age. Very good shoot thank you Mel see you again.

Had a great shoot with Melanie today. She brought plenty with her and unfortunately there wasn't enough time to use more than she actually did. Got some great shots that I am sure she will be pleased with once the processing is finished. It was a really relaxing shoot with a truly lovely lady. Would I recommend her? That's a silly question!

Just to remind everyone that I am not 65 years old. I just turned 70 in January 2015. Entering my date of birth in Purestorm is only up to 1950. It turns out also I am the oldest female model in Purestorm. I am more like hidden among the thick young shoots.

I qualified as a Level 2 Fitness (Gym)Instructor in June 2013. Before getting into body building, I did 8 years training in karate and got my brown belt. Currently, I obtained my Nutritionist and Diet Advisor certificate. Currently doing three courses online: (1) Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor; (2) Advanced Clinical Weight Loss Certification and (3) Pilates Instructor Diploma.

I charge £35 hourly rate for semi-naked and full naked otherwise I charge £25 hourly rate for swim wear, fashion, fitness, lingerie, etc. I don't do wide open legs showing my private parts under the camera lights.

I prefer a studio or outdoor shooting and not at my place because the space is very limited.

I am interested to photographers who can create graphic design backdrop (super impose) to give the background more interesting and enhancing more my images.

I have a tattoo done in April 2012 to cover my long scar due to major operations.







Experience
I originally from the Philippines and came to UK in 1975. After various jobs, I obtained my PGCE teaching qualification in 1994. I retired in 2009 after 15 years teaching in further education.

I started modelling in 2011. In the last three years, I have gained a lot of experience how to face the camera. You can see them from my images how I posed. I have a youthful looks so I dress more like in my younger years something around late 40's and early 50's. I do body building to keep my body systems in mint condition. I joined the bodybuilding.com and it turns out I am the oldest female member so far.

I don't have cellulite, stretched marks, aged spots but I have some wrinkles around my eyes when I smile. I have a haircut short last October 2014. It made me look younger. I have well toned muscular legs, arms, back and abs due to body building.

I am an avid badminton player and known to be "killer serve". I am the oldest female badminton player also as a member in our Club. I am also the oldest female body builder member in my gym. I was also the oldest GKR karate female participant in the tournament. Despite having one lung (born with congenital, right lung didn't develop fully, only one lobe instead of three lobes), it doesn't stop me enjoying my badminton, body building and ceroc dancing. Recently, I joined volleyball game playing with school kids, age ranging 11-16.

I thought of attending rifle shooting for a year. I did two years for air pistol shooting. I am interested to get into indoor rock climbing, clay pigeon shooting, basic fencing and advanced archery (tried once the basic).
