I had long had an idea to do a shoot in an empty church hall or similar building, with a model rising from a chair within a large empty space. Finally with Rosa’s skill and appetite for anything new, I was able to realise that. I was able to ‘borrow’ an old hall that I am working on converting, (in my other life in property), so we were able to use the space undisturbed. The premises had been vacant for several years and showed the signs of decay but I like that and especially the contrast with the most perfect example of beauty, the female form.
It was amazing to see the way Rosa had improved her modelling still further. Now brimming with confidence and able to call on a reservoir of experience, she has really mastered the craft. She is quick to adapt and play a part, moving between genres and moods with ease. But all the time there is a sense of intrigue and curiosity about what she does that is ever more inspiring.
It has been my great privilege to know and work with Rosa over the past two and a half years. I have been rewarded with so many moments of extraordinary beauty. Rosa’s ever present sense of fun and sheer enthusiasm for life is irrepressible and infectious. I eagerly look forward to the continuation of our creative journey in the days and years to come.
