Model Helen Wykes (UK)
I’m a highly experienced and previously agency signed model, covering all genres from catwalk,fashion,editorial and promotional work to artistic nude, erotica and fetish..I can work in the most extreme locations and weathers any time of the year, in the filthiest of conditions, or even the occasional studio.. I’m also able to shoot from my apartment on the Thames with fantastic natural light and an outlook of the marina.
BUT.. My heart really lies in the dark, dirty but incredibly beautiful derelict buildings I’ve loved since a child. Peeling paint, rust and decay bring a peaceful beauty to some amazing architecture from stunning manors to factories and sheds, or my particular favourites asylums and mortuaries.. There is something incredibly haunting and exciting about shooting in these places that creates a real buzz and inspiration for a shoot!
