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!

Forest, Fetish and Fun

Since being back and settled in the Netherlands, I’ve been trying to get myself known out here too.  This involves travelling around the country quite a bit but it’s certainly worth it!   One of the most memorable is on the Dutch-German border called Terborg, almost 2 hours away from Amsterdam, where photographer Bjorn Hijink is based.   As usual, I somewhat got acquainted with him on Facebook through mutual photographer friends.  So impressed with his work and his friendliness, I didn’t mind the long travel, and besides, it is the part of the Netherlands I have not yet explored.  We set the date of the shoot for 30 July 2012.

Bjorn picked me up from the station and those few minutes or so were quite an adventure. I had no idea we were going to drive across the border into Germany where he lived!  I was greeted by his wife, Marion, who is also a model but was assisting the shoot that day.  And what a wonderful couple they were!  Very hospitable and unassuming, they immediately made me feel at home.

Typical of the area, the weather was changeable.  First it was beautiful and sunny so after an introductory coffee and chat, we drove to the nearby forest to capture some nude shots as well as some skimpy PVC outfits such as the blue shorts and collar from Unzipped and the white top and bottom from Webers, both in Amsterdam.  Within an hour or so it started raining but luckily we had more than enough images to keep us happy.  

We returned to Bjorn and Marion’s beautiful home and continued shooting.  This time we used a semi-outdoors venue which was a staircase from the garden to the basement utility room hence providing natural light from above in a narrow confinement.  We thought that black PVC number from Weber’s in Amsterdam would be ideal, combined with a pair of thigh high boots to provide a dungeon atmosphere.

Our final venue was indoors in the bedroom for some low-key images.  I donned a red fishnet bodysuit I got in Tokyo and posed by the mirrored dressing table.  The red was so beautifully emphasized.  Then I proceeded posing nude wearing these super-high perspect stripper heels on the bed looking “come hither”.  I loved the way these heels stood out like lights.

And the day went by so quickly!  Although exhausted in the end we were very pleased with the outcome.  Bjorn has been rather quick in turning around the images despite having gone on holidays a few days after the shoot.  After having received the final batch a few days ago, I must say I am pleased with all the images and can’t wait to upload them soon!  I will share a few of my favorites here.

Thank you so much, Bjorn and Marion for this wonderful day.  I thoroughly enjoyed this photoshoot.  Let’s definitely do it again!
