Musings...

I work from the inside out; it is fruitless to be beautiful on the outside if the inside is rotten.

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.

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: muse1908.deviantart.com/galler…

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.

Interests
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!

A: My waist is naturally 23", I find this question rather weird!

This is a very nice gallery and I'm pleased that you choose to post your personal work rather than all the commercial work additionally. That helps limit the focus and improves the overall collection. I find it inspiring.

I've been following your work for a while, and I love the sense of comfort with yourself and your surroundings that you seem to imbue every photograph with. Just out of curiosity, how do you stage nude photo shoots in public areas without running afoul of indecency laws (although I don't find your work indecent in the least, other people might interpret things differently)? Do you simply choose out of the way places, try to time it to avoid any bystanders, or do what you do and hope that nobody complains? Thanks, and carry on the great work!

You're the closest person on earth I've ever seen to reach  the perfection/power/beauty presence that emanates from Galadriel/Cate Blanchett in the Lord of the Rings. Took my breath away.

You are not only a beautiful woman but your gallery is so weird and imaginative.  Wonderful!  One suggestion:  your body conveys so much expression yet your face so little.  Perhaps you might try putting some passion into your face: smiles, frowns, anger, sadness, despair, etc.

One thing is for sure: If we take into account you're naked, on most of your photographs, your creativity is quite astonishing. You manage to keep your gallery fresh and let me tell you, lady, I'm not into nudes and tell it as I see it. Hats Off!

The pictures the two of you take are stunning in their pure honesty. :)

I was surprised to find myself preferring the pictures where you weren't completely naked. If you were wearing something, the clothes helped create a storyline or structure so I could empathize easier. "Emergence of a Wallflower" and the two "Raven Queen" pictures are examples of this.

Now if I can just convince you to visit a nearby railroad track that is perfectly safe.... ;)
