WELCOME TO MY BLOG!
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.
For more information, you can also find me on: http://www.minimiumodel.com/
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!
HOPE YOU ENJOY READING!!

"Too Hot for Facebook" with Tom Hart
Another tog I worked with during the latest Midlands Tour was Tom Hart on my very last day there (1 February 2010). It was a pleasant coincidence that he found me on Model Mayhem a few weeks ago as I was planning to be in his neck of the woods. Having looked at his work, which is primarily beauty and fashion, I was keen to shoot with him as his images are of outstanding quality and well thought out.
Tom, however, preferred to shoot nudes and experimenting with erotic art with me which suited me well since I have been interested in developing into that for some time. Though I still enjoy doing art nude, I felt I was ready to go a step further and produce more daring images that can still be aethetically pleasing and in good taste. You know, the sort of stuff you see in artistic coffee table books. It's actually been my ambition to be featured in one so this shoot ought to add to my experience and who knows, I may eventually get a few leads!
Tom put me at ease from the start and is very gregarious, fun and chilled out. Despite being relatively young, he was dead serious about his work, knowing exactly what he wanted from the shoots and was meticulous about the lighting and position, whilst patiently directing me till we nailed the images we wanted. Tom has been passing me on a couple of images, one of them he posted on Facebook but had to censor it. I thought I'd share the uncensored one as well! I have to admit, it does look SMOKIN' HOT!!!
Am still waiting for a more retouched images. After this successful shoot, we are both keen on working together again soon, and I plan to be in Birmingham again once it gets a little warmer. Thanks, Tom, I really enjoyed this and look forward for more!!
