I am always the model in my images, rarely the photographer.

ID by DavidCharlesMy amazingly talented husband David Charles is responsible for the majority of the photography (some are self portraits) but I am not a puppet, all the concepts behind the images I post to DA are my own. I'm also responsible for the locations, direction/poses, all post production, makeup/hair and clothing (if any!) and I'm also very involved in the lighting and compositions (I can tell how light will look on camera just by how it feels on me.)

All locations are real, no manipulations, and no filters used, any photoshop is minimal and done by hand from scratch.

I'm a professional stage actress by trade. Trained full-time for 4 years. 15 years working experience. I also work as a part time writer, model and photographer (stage work).

Self portraits here:…

I do work as a mainstream/agency model as well, but most of the time I only upload my personal work online (images where I've had at least a 60% input), as these are the images I feel most proud of.

I am repeatedly receiving messages suggesting how ungrateful I am for not answering all my comments. When actually this couldn't be further from the truth, I appreciate every single comment I receive (well not every one, "nice bush" is definitely not going down as comment of the year, but pretty much all the rest are very much appreciated!)

I do take the time to read all my comments and where possible I try to answer (often thinking I'll come back later and reply and then just not getting the time). I have been on DA for many years now and obviously in this time I have accumulated quite a number of watchers, as a result I get a large amount of comments on each image, add in other comments on other sites and it's around 200+ (as well as messages and emails on top of that). I just can't keep up with that volume of messages, especially when I'm working away on location for a few days (which I often am) everything accumulates.

I actually think I answer more than most, I see so many people who rarely return comments and most of the time it's on the defense - a retaliation to a negative comment. Which I personally think is rather counterproductive (encouraging the negative and ignoring the positive).

So, anyway...

Basically what I wanted to say is thank you for commenting and please don't assume just because I don't always have the time to reply, that I haven't read what you've written or I don't appreciate your feedback, because I have and I do. :heart:

Thanks for reading!

I was wondering how do you and your husband decide which of the photos you work together on go to yours and which to his account? :) Keep it up :heart:

Hi Muse,

I first came across your work a few years ago. I love the artistic style, really elegant and beautiful.

I used to be a member on your website ( a while ago, and was looking to do so again. But I have been unable to load the page (I keep getting a DNS error). Just wondering if this is a temporary issue (or if others are having the same problem), or whether you are migrating to a different platform?

Have been a fan for a long time. Your images have always been an inspiration for me, and I seriously appreciate your art. Good art needs to stir up emotions, to help a person get through dark times, and to motivate a person to keep going in the face of injustice and the adversity that life throws at a person. Your art definitely qualifies.

I also appreciate your breastfeeding image. The beauty contained there can not be put into words.

Thanks for being a guidelight through the dimness!
