In their own words;

Hi, I'm Helen. I have been modelling since losing the majority of my hair with Alopecia. My hair is growing back now, with some patches left, but I choose to keep it shaved. I'm all about celebrating diversity and challenging beauty standards, whilst helping others and building my confidence up, and am an ambassador for Alopecia UK. I am also agency signed with The Casting Collective (extras agency for TV, film and commercials).

I fell into modelling through photography, and love working with passionate creatives who can bring new ideas to shoots. I am an ex international fencer so access to swords isn't a problem! I am also comfortable freediving and modelling underwater. I have a bit of a whacky side for spontaneous ideas on shoots at times, but for that I make no apologies! I also have a slight obsession with organza/voile, and will inevitably wrap myself in it at some point during a shoot, given half the chance....

Current interests: elaborate styling and big dresses, soft feminine styling, whacky concepts (the wackier the better), colourful fashion, and fine art nude in nature. I know my portfolio doesn't reflect this yet! I also have an extensive Pinterest board of ideas which I'm trying to work through!

So what do you get when booking me? As an ex athlete I'm hugely driven to be the best I can be. Quite simply I will do everything I can to get you the perfect shot. As a landscape photographer also, climbing rocks, wading into water....all a breeze.  I still train, so I am athletic in physique, and strong. I'm comfortable in both feminine looks and more edgy masculine looks....quite simply I'm a blank canvas and a bit of a chameleon! With a shaved head, I'm sure I can bring something new to your portfolio, juxtaposing my shaved head with feminine styling.

I'm based in Gateshead but can travel outside of the North East and internationally as long as my expenses are covered.

I have no tattoos, no piercings and have had no cosmetic surgery. I have one scar beneath my knee on my left leg from knee surgery, I'm not self conscious of it and to me it's not that visible. However it's easy to edit out in post, and I have no problem with photographers doing so if they wish.
