Hi everyone, it's me MIU!

Half-Japanese and half-Thai, I'm a free-lance semi-professional MODEL and ARTISTE based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I have lived in the UK for 12 years previous to that, where my modelling career was born in 2008.

Apart from working all over the UK and Holland, assignments have taken me to Belgium, Germany, Spain, France, Sweden, Ireland and, of course, my hometown Japan!

I started as a life model posing nude for artists in the late 90s and eventually put myself in front of the cameras as a glamour model and became involved in car shows and hostessing parties and events in the UK. Easily bored with the same old routine I like to vary my work. Today, much of my work lie with nude, fetish, alternative, and erotic art.

I love to document all my shoots and events to reflect what a great time I'm having and meeting all sorts of people. Some entries may be delayed since the shoot due to waiting for edited images or just being "busy". But I do my best!

Starkers in the Snow

Yes, it sucks being stuck in the snow. Yesterday, I went for a shoot down in Southampton (which by the way went very well). It wasn't snowing when I finished the shoot but once I got on the home-bound train at 19:12, I noticed that halfway through the journey, it was snowing like hell.... the ground was covered with inches of this white powder, the snow just wouldn't stop! Luckily it was a direct train with very little interruptions and I was actually pleasantly surprised the journey continued till my destination!
Today, I was stuck at home. Couldn't go out for a run and couldn't go to the gym as I could neither walk nor drive in this condition. I was very frustrated. Looks like my make up job with famous Czech glamour/porn star Nella in London isn't happening tomorrow. Then I've got a number of shoots booked up in Bath and Birmingham and no one knows what's happening. I'll be very very gutted though secretly relieved cuz TBH, I'm not too sure how well the trains will be running and I sure don't want to be stranded in the middle of nowhere!
So... instead of being angry, I think I should think of the fun side of snow! BEING PHOTOGRAPHED IN THE NUDE OUT IN THE SNOW!!! Well, actually it was right before Xmas. A local tog called Lester Coates texted me one morning to ask if I fancied doing a nudey shoot outdoors. I was like, YESSS!!!! I so had to do it. If I don't, I know I'd regret it. So here I was, standing starked naked in the middle of the forest, covering up whenever I could, shivering and patiently smiling but was like "c'mon hurry up" whilst he'd leisurely switch lenses or realise his memory card was full! Did a few cute Santa hat and red bikini shoots for my Xmas theme images, then moved onto my birthday suit....
