– Jana (The Lady Jane) –
I was paging through a modelling website, and Jana’s portfolio came up. I was immediately taken by the graceful elegance of Jana. She has a certain “look” reminiscent of 50 glamour, if not a younger, redheaded, Dita. Long red locks, big brown eyes, a body with all the right curves in all the right places, and an effortless, easy elegance, I thought Jana would make a great addition to my portfolio. I could certainly do with a bit of refinement in my portfolio, a bit of class, and everything about Jana seemed to be just that little cut above the ordinary, from the way she sits on a chair to the way she holds her cigarette, everything about her seemed as if she stepped out of a 1950’s golden-era Hollywood Film Noir movie.
I set up a meeting and… in one of those wonderful things that happen very seldom in life, we “clicked”. We spend more hours just yammering away over single-malt whisky than we do taking photos, and its this easy-yet-sophisticated company of Jana that makes her such an inspiration to me.
She’s more than a mere model though – she is also very talented in the performing arts. Musical Theatre to be exact. Not only does she make awesome photos, when she starts singing show-tunes in her husky cabaret-voice that puts Liza Minnelli to shame… This is her blessing, my curse. Due to rehearsals and theatre commitments, I do not see as much of The Lady Jane as I’d like to. (You hearing me, Lady Jane? Time to meet up again!)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_masonry_media_grid grid_id=”vc_gid:1477310782403-689cd10e-61b8-8″ include=”1793,1792,1791,1784,1785,1786,1787,1788,1789,1790″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
