'Anita De Bauch on Nylons' editorial in Sinical magazine

My second editorial in Sinical in two months is now out :) (I was interviewed about my thoughts on modelling, fetish and what I like to do in my spare time in the last issue, the Nylons Special Edition.) This time, instead of being interviewed, I wrote an article on my love of vintage nylon stockings to accompany a lovely pictorial in my Playful Promises lingerie, shot by my friend Adam Robertson. I did the makeup and bed-head hair, and the skincare was provided by Bareskin Beauty :)

I love this elegant style of retro lingerie... elegance really had a greater meaning in decades past! It wasn't just a costume you put on once or twice a year for a wedding or a New Year's do... it was something intrinsic to everything you created around you. Not just the visible dress at a fancy party, but the lingerie underneath, the perfect manicure with matte polish, the earrings, the chic handbag (never a knock-off!), the hair styling, the subtle hint of perfume... and the home you got ready in, the lighting there, the furniture, the wallpaper, the music you played and the cocktail you mixed while your curlers were setting... the way you straightened your hat and put on your neatly tailored gloves before stepping out to go to the Post Office, the bank and the train station that day.... oh, it was another time! I love to recreate it in my life and in my work, exactly as I imagine it!

If you are a photographer and would like to shoot something like this with me, I am currently available to shoot at Creativus Imago Studio in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, at:

  • 2pm onwards on Thursday 22 January
  • 10.10 - 1.10pm on Saturday 24 January

There are great all-inclusive packages on offer, e.g. 3 hours on the 24th for £167.50 for me, the studio, the sets and a professional hair and makeup artist! Please email me at with your preferred date, if you have one, and I'll give you the full run-down on what's on offer :)

And now I finish today's blog so that I can carry on doing my tax return... how very glamorous!

NSFW in #Singapore

I should re-title my blog, 'NEVER Safe For Work' ;)

I quite like seeing modelling photos where you can the area surrounding the "photo zone"... the lighting, the assistants, someone with a can of hairspray tucked under their arm texting on their phone, the photographer themselves taking the shot, that sort of thing. It makes the photo seem to dynamic and gives you a sense of all the energies that go into making even a seemingly peaceful mood photo :)

This is another shot by Lem, who I blogged about on Sunday. After shooting on the cool, two storey  high fire escape set he created in his studio, it was nice to shoot something simple on a sofa. It may sound odd, but some of my favourite photos have been taken in ordinary places like people's living rooms. All you need is light :)

Skincare by Bareskin Beauty

Here is a last shot from the cool metal fire escape set Lem created in his studio, but this time, nude. I do like the contrast of soft, pale skin in hard, dark settings!

If you are a photographer in England interested in shooting some studio nudes with me, I have a great package offer available this month at Space Studio in St Albans. There are three 2 hour art nude bookings currently available, each of which is £100 all-inclusive of myself, the studio, equipment, hair and makeup, the signing of any releases, parking and light refreshments.

10am - 12pm: BOOKED
12.10 - 2.10pm: BOOKED
2.20 - 4.20pm: BOOKED
4.30 - 6.30pm: BOOKED

Please click here or email for further details or to book, for which you will need to provide your full name, a contact number and a non-refundable deposit of £50. Thanks!

Photographer Showcase: Latex shoot with Lem Cheng Hai at DStudioLab, Singapore

I've been shooting with Lem in Singapore every year since 2011. In fact, I think I had my very first shoot in Singapore in his studio, DStudioLab, which is still my favourite in the area.

On my last trip, Lem set up this cool industrial metal stairway/ fire escape in front of the huge shutter door normally used for letting in vehicles for car shoots, for me to play on, which was mucho fun in 8" spike heels :o

I think the next two are my favourites- wearing my long black Lady Lucie Latex leggings and extra high platforms up there really got me channelling some sort of sexy, sensual spider creature..! And although I love a bold lipstick red, I do like this industrial-looking metal structure in black and white- it makes it feel less cheery and more gritty and urban to me.

I hope to return to Southeast Asia again in November- if you are a photographer based in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Japan, or even Australia, please email me to register your interest today on, and I will let you know when I am taking bookings :)

If you're a photographer based in England and would like to shoot some edgy, industrial, fetish-y, steampunk, alternative fashion-inspired images with me this month, you might be interested in these two fun package deals I've set up this month, one studio-based with optional hair and makeup artist, and one location, with just me ;)

My good friend Roswell Ivory will also be in London on 30 January, if anyone would like to book us together while we're both in the same town (we're off to a party in the evening!). She has a real-life alternative fashion look that perfectly fits in with Camden's vibe. We used to do shopping and lunch there quite regularly when I lived in North London :) Her portfolio is here.

Email me on with any questions or booking enquiries. Many thanks :)

Urban Camden Street Fashion Shoot

Happy New Year, everyone :)

I had a very quiet evening compared to last year, when I was raving to The Prodigy at the O2 until 3.30am. This year I had a bit of a sore throat/ was generally feeling too tired to socialise and so stayed in with boyfy, drinking bubbly and watching the fireworks on TV, before sloping off to bed with the cats at 1. Rock on!

I thought I'd share these fresh street fashion photos from a shoot I styled and modelled for last year in Camden. I also did the location scouting and tour guiding :) The photographer was a lovely chap called David Benzie, who I can thoroughly recommend :) We had a good old chat as well as shooting!

So much colder than it looks! :p

I'll be in Camden again on Monday 19 Sunday 18 Wednesday 21 and Friday 30 January, if any photographer would like me to take them on another Urban Camden Street Fashion Tour :)

There are lots of cool little places to shoot there, and in a historically creative and arty neighbourhood easily reached on the tube. I'm delighted to be able to offer one photographer a two hour Urban Camden Street Fashion Tour at 11.30am - 1.30pm on Monday 19 January anytime on Wednesday 21 or Friday 30 January, meeting by Camden Town Station and ending at a suitably Camden-ish coffee shop with a complementary organic cappuccino to warm up before heading home! I can drop you back off at Camden Town Station.

The all-inclusive price for this shoot is £100, which covers me, arriving photo-ready in full hair, makeup and wardrobe; one change of wardrobe, as well as a couple of different coats and accessories to play with the two outfits; four different locations; the signing of any releases; and a delicious organic cappuccino :)

These unusual shoots will be booked on a first come, first serve basis, so please get in touch as soon as possible to avoid disappointment on I hope London photographers will consider taking advantage of this opportunity! Thanks for reading, and please feel free to share this blog using the little buttons below if you know someone who you feel this might benefit :)
