❝ I had the pleasure of an all-day shoot with Ria. And what a pleasure it was. Mind you, I knew it was going to be a good ‘un. Her pre-shoot communications had been excellent so, on shoot day, we were able to hit the ground running. You can see from Ria’s pictures that she is strikingly beautiful, has a superb toned figure and, overall, has a wonderfully classy and sophisticated look. But what else? Well… There’s her creativity, energy, enthusiasm, her experience and body awareness (she seems to instinctively know what looks good for the camera), her make-up skills and her eye for styling. Hang on. I haven’t finished yet. On top of all that there’s her sparkling personality and sense of humour, so she’s not only brilliant to photograph but she’s also fun to work with. Does she have any faults? Yes. One major one. The inconsiderate woman lives 100 miles away from me. If she had any consideration for me she would live a lot closer so that I could work with her again and again and again – and I would LOVE to do that. Fantastic? Well – although that might be a quirk of her family name, that word IS very fitting. She really is THAT good to work with. ❞

❝ I had a shoot with Ria today and it was absolutely perfect! We planned it a little while ago, with a few rough plans, but plenty of freedom to try things a bit on set too. Immediately from meeting Ria I knew it would be an amazing shoot, we got on so well and had such a laugh, it was certainly the most fun I’ve had on a shoot. Ria is the friendliest person I’ve worked with, which I must say I didn’t expect, because of how professional Ria is in pre-shoot communication. In reality we were laughing within minutes. But of course we still got every idea we’d discussed done, and were professional when actually shooting. But Ria’s personality made it really enjoyable, rather than only getting some cool shots. Speaking of which, our shots turned out amazing! Ria poses perfectly and is ridiculously stunning, as one can tell from looking at all of her shots here! It was genuinely my best shoot for ages, I absolutely loved it, and I really hope we get to work together again soon! Would thoroughly recommend if you want both the most beautiful model you’ll meet and also the most sweet person one could hope get to know. ❞

❝ After what must have been at least a year since we first talked about working together, yesterday I had the chance to work with Ria for the first time. The plan was a street fashion photoshoot around Shoreditch, and as I didn’t get much location planning done in advance it ended up being a wander around Shoreditch to look for cool spots to shoot at! I probably couldn’t have asked for a better model to work with for this shoot, Ria arrived on time, with makeup and hair prepared to a high level, and ready to shoot. She was 100% engaged in the creative process, and came up with invaluable suggestions throughout the shoot. As her portfolio demonstrates, Ria has a striking beauty and she knows how best to demonstrate this in front of the camera and worked hard to ensure we got the very best shots on each and every set. Ria is fantastic to work with, she certainly lives up to her name! She’s fun to work with, easy to chat to and have a laugh with. I have no hesitation in recommending Ria to all. ❞

❝ It’s always a great pleasure working with Ria and this time I was lucky to shoot with her twice in two days, firstly in the studio and then on location at the beach. Ria is one of my favourite models to work with, she’s confident and fun, always relaxed with a great natural smile and laugh. She’s definitely got the potential to go a long way in modelling and just prefect for commercial beauty, fashion and lingerie projects. Pre-shoot comms were excellent, she arrived on time, did her own hair and make up to a very high standard and poses easily without direction. She’s got an extensive range of poses and is fully of energy and enthusiasm. Unlike with some models I never felt that Ria was just going through the motions of modelling, she was always alert and working hard from start to finish and she really brings a depth of expression to her poses. The results are excellent, it’s going to take me a while to select the best shots as there are so many. 100% recommended. ❞

❝ Professional and knowledgeable. That is how I’ll summarise my impression of Ria. She has an excellent pre comm and showed up to our shoot extremely prepared for the shoot. This shoot was for a hair competition and although the client was very specific about her vision, Ria was patient and creative to deliver on the brief. For this shoot, I was looking for a winning shot and with her help and patience, we were able to get it in no time. She isn’t afraid to input into the creative process. Something I was very grateful for. I will recommend her especially to photographers who appreciate creativity as her experience and drive can be very useful. Highly recommended.

❝ Ria truly is fantastic, I don’t think I’ve ever worked with such a organised model! I simply cannot recommend her enough to anyone that requires a highly skilled commercial model. Ria is without a doubt one of the most amazing models I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. We’ve shot together several times now and just when you think she can’t get any better she somehow manages to level up! Add to this her infectious sense of sardonic humour and ability to switch things up on a dime and you have what I like think is the perfect model. If you ever have the chance to work with her you owe to yourself to seize the opportunity with both hands! ❞

❝ I had a very productive shoot with Ria today. Pre shoot comms were spot on and getting our booking into diary was effortless. She has a very good work ethic and I was pleased with the way our shoot went. She takes instruction extremely well and understands how to adjust body and limb position incrementally, allowing for a smoother workflow. She has patience and made every effort to understand and interpret what I required so as to deliver the image I was after. I was very impressed with Ria today; her attitude, work ethic and striking features have made it easy for me to consider her as a front runner for any projects I may have which fall within her specified genres. Highly recommended! ❞

❝ Ria….. was Fantastic (pardon the pun) As a total newbie, and this being my first time on a model shoot, I have to say I was pleased I picked Ria, from the pre-shoot communications which were excellent, add to this the wonderful location she recommended, and to the contributions she made on the day in terms of different poses and looks (without my directions from me), and with a choice of outfits to boot. I like to think we got on very well in terms of sharing ideas. It was a total pleasure working with Ria, and found the whole experience very informative, relaxed in her approach and knowledgeable in her suggestions, and hope to work with her again very soon! Highly recommended! ❞

❝ Amazing – I had my first shoot with Ria and it definitely won’t be the last. She was amazing. We shot for a leather jacket catalog for nearly 4 hours with 2 other models. She came on time ready to shoot with her hair and makeup done. Ria is one of those models who has a different pose in every shot, she needed no direction, each shot was better than the last. She is a really nice person and easy to get on with, really enjoyed working with her and will be again soon. Ria is really Fantastic and would be shooting again with her very soon. I don’t need to say but if someone is thinking of shooting with Ria, don’t think, just book her, you won’t be disappointed. ❞

❝ Worked with Ria for the first time yesterday. Had been aware of Ria’s profile for a little while and had tentatively started putting some ideas together for a beauty macro portrait shoot. In just a few well communicated messages, Ria confirmed that she had the MUA skills to achieve the looks, we found ourselves booked at Studio DSL. Ria arrived on time, bubbly and ready to get going. Her make-up bag, which was comparable in weight to my camera backpack, was quickly unpacked, looks finalised and Ria got work. Concentrating solely on headshots and beauty portraits we achieved a couple of different looks. Models and takes direction well – especially with the small adjustments required for the type of shot we were aiming for. Highly recommended, both as a model and MUA. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Ria in either capacity again. ❞

❝ I finally got to shoot Ria this evening. She’s been on my wish list for a long time and she didn’t disappoint. Exceeding my expectations, Ria has a natural elegance and beauty that shines out and we had a very productive shoot. Once I’d outlined the shoot theme I was able to let Ria run with it, needing little direction to get things ‘just right’ – Elegant sophistication is what I was after and Ria gave me that pose after pose, costume change after costume change. She looked breathtaking in her two ball gowns which outlined her stunning figure. Ria had lots of ideas of her own which is always good and we interacted well and had a very enjoyable three hours together. She is warm, friendly and engaging and was a real pleasure to work with. Very highly recommended by me on every level. Thank you so much Ria. ❞

❝ This is my third time with Ria (maybe I could have worded that better… whatever), and the shoot we had on Tuesday 28th at StudioDSL in Plaistow was to an equally high standard as the previous ones. I have only praise to impart for her professionalism, planning, versatility and importantly, the ability to set photographers at ease so they can best work out their lighting etc. It doesn’t matter what you want out of the shoot, (obviously ONLY to her advertised levels right? Yeah I’m talking to YOU!), I am pretty confident Ria will help you get there, with a large dose of humour chucked in for free too! I am already planning an urban outdoor shoot in the very near future (not my natural setting but confident enough with Ria to give it a go). Highest possible recommendation, for newer or seasoned tog. ❞

❝ I had the pleasure of photographing Ria for the first time last week, and she was a delight to work with. Pre-shoot comms were excellent and she arrived on location in good time. Ria’s modelling experience showed in her broad range of expressions and poses, which always felt natural and effortless. Ria is great to work with, intelligent, extremely professional yet very, very funny. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so much on a shoot, heard such interesting anecdotes or had a lesson on classical Greek columns! This personality comes across in the images we produced. Highly recommended. ❞

❝ Worked with the wonderful Ria today at a group shoot she had arranged. The pre-shoot communications were excellent which always bodes well for me in terms of how the shoot will go and I wasn’t disappointed. Ria is the consummate professional, highly talented, flexible and stunning. She even braved the balmy January temperatures on a balcony 8 floors up. We had ample time to work through ideas and she contributed to those as well, pushing the creativity along nicely. Highly personable and would love to work with her again. Definitely
recommend. ❞

❝ My fourth, yes fourth, shoot with Ria and that should tell you all you need to know! Another group shoot at a London studio, the event well organised and run on the that with timely and detailed pre shoot comms. Ria was well prepared with a variety of outfits and ideas for themes, there were a number of photographers and Ria worked hard to ensure we all got the images we were aiming for. Add to the mix a great studio with plenty of props and sets, tea, biscuits and good conversation and the result is a great group shoot (this time I was even relieved of chauffeur duties). ❞

❝ Had a terrific shoot with Ria today. She was modelling for a group of 12 photography students without much experience in studio work and she just took the whole thing in her stride. Ria has a superb sense of humour and is a delight to work with. Everything about her is a cut above and she has a seriously powerful look to camera! She’s excellent with her own makeup and choice of clothes and was happy to offer suggestions as the various sets progressed. She is also 100% professional, as you would expect. Highly recommended! ❞

❝ Crazy, beautiful, intelligent and tremendously talented! After an amazing 3 hour shoot this afternoon I am wondering why it took me so long to work with her. The photos on her port quite accurately shows how photogenic she is and Ria is really good fun to work with. In fact was one of the most enjoyable shoots I have had – she cracked me up big time! If you want to work with a great professional model Ria is the girl to go to! Thanks Ria, look forward to working with you soon. ❞

❝ Ria is utterly brilliant and a complete joy to work with. We had a great shoot. She was such an easy-going and professional person – and just great fun as well. She was so relaxed about the work we did together and offered lots of ideas and creative input too. She is just such a lovely person and a positive influence. Thank you Ria for a great day, for being so adaptable – and for just being such a great person to collaborate with. Very highly recommended. ❞

❝ A perfect model, great communications before and during the shoot, on time and ready to go! I have nothing but acclaim for Ria and would work with her again in a heartbeat. Working with signed, agency models gives you the reassurance and confidence to plan a shoot, safe in the knowledge that your vision will be realised. I couldn’t be happier with the day and the results. ❞

❝ Ria filled in at a couple of days’ notice when previous arrangements for a studio shoot fell through – couldn’t have been more fortunate in finding a replacement model – a real find – great face for headshots, slim shape for full length and a fabulous positive attitude throughout – excellent timely communications – very highly recommended – fully intend arranging another shoot soon. ❞

❝ It’s not just a name, Ria is Fantastic. I had such a great time with her on the shoot even if my memory of the streets of London was a little hazy. I’m glad we got to shoot though she’s a total natural at this and made my job easy. Not just a great model but sincerely a great person and lot of fun to have on a shoot! Thanks so much Ria! ❞

❝ I had a great shoot with Ria yesterday. We had good pre shoot communications & she came well prepared. She has a lovely personality, is very easy to get along with – and that’s the recipe for getting good photos! Regrettably time went too quickly for us, so we’ll have to do it again sometime! Definitely recommended. ❞

❝ I had my Second Shoot with Ria recently… I absolutely love working with her, I couldn’t wish for a better model to duo with. She is so easy to get a long with, needs no direction and the whole shoot is an absolute blast! The final product really does show her experience and what an amazing model she really is. If you are lucky enough to work with her (models and Photographer) you can guarantee you will get some absolutely incredible images. A truly beautiful person inside and out! I hope we can work together more often.. and get some more amazing images! ❞

❝ Worked with Ria recently on a group shoot at the Loft in Colchester. Ria worked hard and effortlessly throughout the day. Her poses were well thought out and completely fluid, she’s an absolute pro! On top of this Ria is also such a lovely character, friendly, chatty, bright and has such a welcoming approach. I felt like I had known her for years! Ria has such a gorgeous appearance and I can imagine easy for any photographer to capture her beauty! I was absolutely mesmerised watching her work but also had the pleasure of doing a bit of a Calvin’s duo with her, which she completely smashed! I would recommend Ria to anybody, I hope to work with her again! ❞

❝ I worked with Ria on a duos shoot (as her fellow model) with the amazing Maria Mirage. We spent the majority of the day together and she’s super lovely to be around! Great positive energy and chatty, what a gal. Her self-applied make-up was flawless and to a high photographic standard and she worked like a natural in front of the camera, she really knows her stuff. Great model to work with and watch work, book her
asap! ❞

❝ It was the first time working with the beautiful ria, she has lots of different ideas for the photoshoot, she is kind, professional and has a variety of poses that makes her pictures come out sexy but classy at the same time. Was great to work with her and hope to have a photoshoot with her again in the future. I also think I made a good friend. ❞

❝ A beautiful, friendly and stunning girl. It was pleasure meeting with Ria who used our studio www.studiodsl.com for her studio day workshop. She is a passionate, hard working, committed, confident, and fit model with absolutely stunning body, beauty and great professional attitude. Her communication is excellent, she responses your messages/emails frequently and will be in touch from the day first till the end of the assignments/project which witnesses her professionalism. Personally we were really pleased to meet with such a down to earth friendly person. Thanks a lot Ria for choosing our studio for your project, we hope to see you again. ❞

❝ We were lucky enough to have Ria at The Loft studio today. It was a particularly snowy and freezing day with delays on transport links, however, Ria made it to the studio early for her shoot showing the kind of dedication that only the best of models possess. Ria has a radiant positive energy that permeated thought-out the studio and made for an amazing shoot. The photographer, makeup artist, stylist and studio team were cast under spell within minutes! We hope to see her at The Loft again very soon! ❞
