I had the pleasure of shooting Abby Jo for my second studio day @ Pauls Studio. She’s amazing to work with, really friendly, needed little direction and provided some valuable lighting and framing tips! Even after a first edit I still have 100 images.

I had the privelige of shooting Abby Jo in my first ever studio shoot – she was the nicest person imaginable and really patient with all my questions (I’m sure she’s been asked a 1000 times before!). I shot images I never imagined I’d ever be good enough to shoot – and she made it all so easy – I sincerely hope that as I continue to develop my skills and my own style that our photographic paths will cross again.

Abby Jo is amazing not only in her ability but also her attitude, wearing only latex in a very cold cellar, Abby Jo nailed pose after pose…. and even though she was cold she was still making us all laugh .. I always enjoy working with Abby Jo as I know I will get the shots I want… a first rate model and a sheer pleasure to work with..

Hope to work with you again soon..

I worked with Abby Jo at a portfolio building event at Woodchester Mansion. What a fabulous experience, an amazing lady who effortlessly listens to suggestions, moves and poses with panache. She has also got a magic sense of humour. Top class and I would very much like to work with her again in the future. Highly recommended.

I had an amazing day working with Abby Jo. She’s thoughtful, professional and a pleasure to work with. Right from the outset there was an easy rapport between us which was down to her great attitude and warm personality. Abby Jo was versatile, shared ideas and really helped make some great photos. She’s easy to direct with a huge variety of poses and can do approach.

I’d highly recommend her and look forward to shooting with her again

 

Paride said…

Had a great shoot in a great location with Abby Jo. She is just brilliant and every photo is a testimonial of it. However she poses you just get amazing stills.

Very professional, friendly and easy to work with. Highly recommended and looking forward to work with her again. x

 

ampy said…

Had an amazing day yesterday working with Abby Jo on a Stephen Perry tutorial day.

What can I say? Abby Jo is an amazing model. Stunningly beautiful (even if she denies it…). Knows what works. Capable of great and varied poses. Able to work in many different genres. But just as (more?) important – fun to be with.

Also professional enough to know what does and doesn’t work. Gave me a few gentle nudges in the right direction when I was going astray. Smile

Will undoubtedly work with Abby Jo again.

Absolutely recommended.

 

Artemis Fauna said…

I spent a total of 20 hours in a space of five days working with Abby Jo last week…I just about survived Wink

Joking aside Abby Jo is amazeballs Wink Fun, sexy and a super duper model! I was really looking forward to working with Abby Jo again after quite a few years and we had a blast. Many, many cool images and lots of laughing!!

I am certain Abby Jo and I will be working together again very soon and I can’t wait! Thank you !! Smile

 

Chris Hope said…

I have shot with Abby Jo a few times now one to one and several times as part of a group and each time she excels. Great posing and attitude and she can pose independently or take direction.

With her doing her own makeup and hair and having a huge selection of clothing to choose from highly recommended.

I will be shooting with her again.

 

MartynF said…

My first shoot with Abby Jo and I have to say it was fun and I would certainly work with her again, totally professional in attitude and willingness to push a look.

I would recommend anyone regardless of experience level to work with Abby Jo without hesitation.

Bill M said…

This was the third time I have shot with Abby Jo and every time she has been fantastic. In terms of Abby Jo’s modelling ability her portfolio images as they say are worth a thousand of my words. I’ve shot a mixture of looks with Abby Jo and she has excelled every time.

Abby Jo is fun to work with and the time passed easily without any awkward moments, Abby Jo managed to understand my confusing directions and contributed excellently herself.

I’d recommend anyone to work with Abby Jo.

Nomad said…

Jumped at the chance to work with Abby Jo again, so talented and professional.  Abby Jo never ceases to amaze with the range she brings to the images. Highly recommended and then some +++++ Big smile

 

John Jobling said…

Where do I start?

My first shoot with this, rightly, acclaimed top class model. I have always admired her work by others and couldnt wait to work with her.

The shoot was at her out of this world home. This is a converted Methodist Chapel, is on 3 floors and is decorated and furnished to a very high standard.

Abby Jo herself was lovely to work with and a great down to earth personality. Her profile is as accurate as you can get to the real model in my view.

Modelling wise Abby Jo has it all, hair and make up upon arrival were 100% spot on (and changes through the shoot were done expertly and quickly.

What this lady doesn’t know about modelling isn’t worth knowing. Brilliant poses at all times. Offers suggestions which are reasonable, not pushy and I found really helpful. She happily took my shoot ideas on board and took my directions as well.

You only have to look at her portfolio images – which can say a lot more than any words here.

New and inexperienced photographers may be put off by her reputation. All I will say is take the plunge and work with this lady – she will help you so much to get top class images. Well worth her reasonable rates.

I really hope to work with Abby Jo again.

GeeBee Photography said…

Had a wonderful shoot today with the gorgeous Abby Jo at her home.

What can I say that hasn’t been said already?

She is stunningly beautiful, poses effortlessly, without direction and yet instantly understands what it required when asked.

Abby Jo also understands the light and is visually aware of her work space, so can spot and move things that may detract or add to the shot.

She is an absolute joy to be around and to work with, the time flew by and we got through lots of ideas and different settings.

Her home is a great living studio, beautifully finished with fantastic features and lots of ‘character’ Wink

I can’t recommend her highly enough, I loved every minute of our shoot and would love to work with her again. Smile

Plattsnaps Photo Dojo said…

I worked with Abby Jo recently at Scarlet Door Studio. A massive Wow factor experience for me. She was so professional and so natural in front of the camera. She oozed enthusiasm for the entire shoot. Highly Recommended.

Michael White said…

I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Abby Jo and welcoming her to my location in the Algarve last month.

As well as being a thoroughly lovely person, Abby Jo has to be one of the most exceptional models I have ever photographed. It’s a long time since a model has caused me to stop and re-evaluate how I go about shooting, Abby Jo managed it! – so a big ‘thank you’.

We had a great time, and we got some great pictures… always varied in style, and always more than I expected!

I cant wait for Abby Jo to come back to Portugal and hopefully do some workshops – I’ll be there!

Phil Sproson Photography said…

I worked with Abby Jo on Monday and the time just flew by so quickly, and as it’s said, time flies when you are having fun, this certainly was true. The shoot had a wonderful flow to it and pausing really only to check out Abby Jo’s extensive collection of clothing, a good number of changes for different looks was achieved and was really appreciated as it broadened the range of images I walked away with. Abby Jo works with a natural flow and will move freely between shots though a myriad of poses and she knows instinctively how to pose in relation to the camera and the lighting. Also, her insights into all aspects of capturing her well were listened to and I took away some great tips too. Thanks Abby Jo x

I really really enjoyed shooting with Abby Jo and I would recommend her to all my tog friends, acquaintances and to anybody else too… An awesome lady with ace humour who is utterly professional. Highest recommendation possible for Abby Jo x

What a delightful breath of fresh air. This woman is not only beautiful, she has the right attitude and is a great laugh at the same time. We chatted throughout our first ever shoot. Abby Jo is also a great communicator and contributes into make the the shots work. Totally enjoyed the session, and the time went by to quickly…. Bring on the second shoot © Gibson

 

Buddygb said…

So here I am, reference number 254… What can I possibly add that 253 satisfied customers haven’t already said?

Well, it’s true. All of it…

I’d wanted to shoot with Abby Jo for some time and was thrilled when she applied to a recent casting I’d posted. Communications were excellent and when I arrived at the location Abby Jo so kindly let me use I found her well prepared, very welcoming and ready to shoot – after a root through her extensive wardrobe.

Abby Jo has a very engaging, infectious personality and is great fun to shoot with. Couple that with an innate ability and inventive flair when it comes to posing and expression and you have possibly the perfect package. I thoroughly enjoyed our shoot and have a memory card full of great images to boot. I only wish I’d not waited so long…

You’ll kick yourself if you fail to grab an opportunity to shoot with Abby Jo so to avoid injury and serious self inflicted bruising you should book her now. Right now Smile

B.

 

Hodgie said…

Not much to me said really, just perfect.

Abby Jo is a true professional. Clothing, creativity and posing techniques in abundance . Communications spot on and most important warm and inviting. Very easy to relax whilst shooting.

Abby Jo, had the patience of a saint when i want t try a new camera and shooting style.

Our shoot was predominantly around natural light without any preconceived ideas, wondering around form room to room and shooting.

The resulting images were stunning, would love to shoot a few more times at the very least.

The shoot was a relaxed and enjoyable time. Thank you Abby Jo x

 

AntPics said…

Wow. An amazing session with Abby Jo and Stephen Perry, exploring and developing my ideas and turning them into real images. Abby Jo comes fully-equipped with an extensive wardrobe (suitcases full), not that we used much of it…

An absolute pleasure to work with. Listens, gets creative, and willing to try anything…

 

GaryMac Photography said…

Third time shooting with Abby Jo, this time at Kirklees Hall

What more can be said about this incredible Lady that has already not been said

Abby Jo operates at a zillion miles per hour, always full of ideas and is totally unpredictable, but a fantastic laid back individual when a camera lens is not pointing at her.

I have left each of the shoots with a big smile on my face and a card full of amazing images

Chatty, friendly, supportive, with a good eye for detail what more could you ask for, oh and did I not mention the floordrobe with so many outfits and shoes

If you have not had a shoot with Abby Jo : Why Not ????????

Recommended : Highly Highly Recommended Five Stars

Work with again : without a doubt

Thanks for another great shoot Abby Jo

 

Clear Lens Photography said…

I shot with Abby Jo at a workshop with Stephen Perry. What more could you ask for? Abby Jo it simply wonderful and is a delight to be around. Working with Abby Jo is a breeze and as her amzing Portfolio shows she is super talented.

Thanks again Abby Jo, oh the Nutella “slag” cake didn’t make it out of London before being devoured! Delicious!

 

Symagery said…

I attended a workshop run by Stephen Perry and Abby Jo was the model. I have worked with Abby Jo before, and I really look forwards to working with her. She is crazy, stunning and exceptional fun to work with. Please move closer, well to Norwich. I can’t wait to work with you again. Simon

 

JamesW said…

I had a shoot at Abby Jo’s home today. She was kind enough to pick me up from the station and was a hard-working and thoughtful model. I’d definitely recommend her. Smile

 

Phil Sproson Photography said…

I had an awesome couple of hours shooting with Abby Jo and Andrew Appleton after the Photography Show last week. Abby Jo is amazing, even after a full day of modelling at the show there was plenty of energy left to continue with an evening shoot.

Abby Jo is a great person to be around as well as being an exquisite model and I cannot wait until we can shoot together again. I would recommend Abby Jo to anyone Smile

DaveEdwards said…

I’ve had the pleasure of shooting with Abby Jo a couple of time in the last month or two, and what amazing shoots they were! Abby Jo has a reputation for being as mad as a bag of spiders and possessing twice the energy: It’s well deserved! The result of this creative enthusiasm and energy is a set after set of amazing poses and images. Abby Jo’s also got an eye for detail, constantly checking and tweaking her outfits to ensure that everything is perfect and when not posing at a million frames a minute, is a relaxed and friendly soul who’s very easy to get along with and makes each shoot an incredible experience! Very highly recommended indeed!

Millwood Photography Studio said…

Simply brilliant! enough said.

 

Paul Webster said…

I worked with Abby Jo yesterday. All I can do is add yet another positive and glowing reference Smile Great model, professional and good humoured. Highly recommended.

 

MikeyP said…

Abby Jo came with a smile and 2 very heavy suitcases which covered just about everything you could wish for, the lady is a true collector of shoes! What can be said that hasn’t been already about this very accomplished model, comfortable to work with, knows about every pose and style and then some more….

Time flew by and I enjoyed this lovely lady’s company and got some great images too. . Highly recommended.

 

LMason said…

What do I say about Abby Jo? I mean, she’s frickin’ Abby Jo! An awesome model, who took a fun concept and effortlessly provided both the “cheesy/silly” shots demanded by Oryx and the slightly more serious ones from me. Abby Jo is everything you could want or ask for in a model. She’s also the funniest model I’ve ever worked with and provided the best ever (unrepeatable) one-liner that I’ve ever heard on a shoot. Big smile

As a guest and a friend, she’s just as awesome and always welcome back! *hint* ♥

Very, very highly recommended Big smile

 

JPea said…

I have shot previously with Abby Jo and she was the model for a full day 1 to 1 with Stephen Perry at his studio in Kensington.

I dote on Abby Jo. She is the most exciting stunning model and also a lovely delightful person.

She knows exactly what it is that I am trying to produce and then does it. Working with her is fun but also serious because she does everything to help you get the result.

I cannot recommend her enough and I can’t wait for our next shoot.

Thank you Abby Jo and thanks also for putting me in touch with Stephen.

 

Chris Mansfield said…

TOTALLY committed – giving her all to every shot, hard working and fun, what this girl cant turn her hand to just aint worth doing.

Another great shoot with Abby Jo, I’ve come to expect nothing less, which I probably why I keep working with her. You should too. go on, book her now, you wont be disappointed.

 

Donald said…

Genius and Madness are only inches apart so I will say she is a genius Smile Loopy, crazy and a bundle of pure joy to work with. It never dull and it is never quiet but omg the images are fantastic.

 

Stproc said…

I have shot with Abby Jo previously and this time was part of a group shoot at Victoria Baths, Manchester.

Her energy and commitment are second to none and she was ‘on it’ from the off. She was shot in the old boiler room, a rusty old decrepit place but she had no hesitation in getting stuck in, I had envisaged shots in front of the old pipework but she was straight in there amongst it. A top shoot and I came away with some very different images. Highly recommended and will meet up again sometime.

 

Rocky480 said…

Shot with Abby Jo at Kirklees Hall on Sunday 8th March 2015. Outstanding! Professional from head to toe with a fantastic personality and an exceptional sense of fun! Highly recommended to photographers of all abilities.

 

Crake said…

I worked with Abby Jo on a ‘James Bond’ themed shoot and she was the perfect Bond Girl. She makes everything look amazing, totally inhabits the character and makes life easy for all of us. She was sexy, dangerous, beautiful, emotional and hilarious (frankly, we’re all a bit in love with her). Can’t wait to dress her up again! Highly recommended

 

MrDarkside said…

Modelled alongside Abby Jo in a rather steamy bedroom scene in a boutique hotel in Cardiff. She’s totally lovely, very funny, charming and a totally amazing model. Watching her work was like a masterclass – the way she finds the right light, her expressions, her movement. She’s simply the best – I had a really fun time. Oh, and she’s insanely hot Smile

 

Ray Gibson Photography said…

Totally amazing model well prepared an organised

I shot Abby Jo during a Damien Mcgillicuddy experience day and what an experience it was!

The perfect model she poses beautifully, takes direction well and understands the needs and demands of the photographer, even down to understanding how the light works.

YOU need to book Abby Jo – I will be doing! Smile

 

Colin Dixon said…

Well not much left to say about Abby Jo as a model that has not been said. But what a wonderful person to be around for 2 hours such a professional. Put everything into my ideas that I brought to the shoot. Thanks Abby Jo can wait to meet and shoot again sometime.

 

Meero said…

Amazing

 

TeoTotev said…

Highly recommended model!

She is able to pose perfectly without any direction from photographer and to create thousands of high quality different poses without any problem!

Highly professional attitude and even in end of shooting day she as fresh as in beginning!

Nailing perfect frames with her is easy job!

Thank you Abby Jo!

 

Creativus Imago Photography Studio said…

Abby Jo is an absolutely outstanding model and her work rate is astonishing. She poses without any need for direction. Although, she is quite happy to take direction if required. She is a beautiful, happy model with oodles of character and knowledge of her profession.

She arrived on time with what looked like her entire wardrobe.. so many clothes and bits to choose from. Her makeup skills are also excellent. I had such fun with her, the time just flew by. I could of photographed her for a week non stop and still not got bored.

If you have not booked a session with this superb young lady, then you must and book minimum half a day. You will not regret it ..

If you have not worked with Abby Jo then you are truly missing out.

I unreservedly recommend Abby Jo to both professional and amateur photographers.

She is simply awesome

Thanks Abby Jo x

Brew Time Photography said…

Don’t let Abby Jo’s suave and sexy sophistication fool you, she’s good for a laugh and a giggle!! Abby Jo is brilliant at what she does and brings an ease of professionalism while keeping the shoot down to earth and fun. Book her now, you won’t regret it – RECOMMENDED!!

Abby Jo, I hope you had as much fun as I did!!

 

Lee Paul said…

Abby Jo was great to work with, she takes directions well and can direct herself, along with a great personality. No wonder she has so many positive reviews!

Highly recommended Smile

DNM Photography said…

Hair, make-up, photogenic, posing and personality are guaranteed with Abby Jo. Whether you are an experienced photographer or relative newcomer to photography Abby Jo will always ensure you have a great shoot.

You can be confident in her ability so you only have to worry about your own.

Highly recommended.

 

Studio Antics said…

There really isn’t much to add to the already glowing references for Abby Jo so, this is a little note to say thank you, thank you for taking time to come to the very first shoot at Kirklees Hall which is now off to a great start with such a star adorning the house. Really lovely to meet you, great fun and hope that I will have the honour of working with you again.

 

sperry1 said…

I have shot Abby Jo many times now as can be seen on my port. I have had a lot of experience shooting many models over the years and I have never met a more hardworking, professional and brilliant model. Not only is she fantastic working with photographers with a lot of experience but I’ve seen how she works with photographers who are learning the craft. She is patient, infectious, funny and knows how to help those who are learning. I’ve worked with her on my one 2 one workshops and group workshops and she will make the day flow effortlessly.

If you are learning and want to get great shots, she will help you make that happen. If you are an experienced professional, you cannot fail to get good pictures.

Some people go the extra mile. Abby Jo will keep going like Forrest Gump till she gets to the sea gathering followers in her wake. With Abby Jo, life is like a jar of Nutella, you always know what yer gonna get. If you haven’t seen Forrest Gump and have no idea what the hell that last sentence was all about, ignore me. If you have seen it don’t think I think she’s actually like Forrest Gump! That would be weird.

I sometimes forget to credit her for her make up on all her shots I post. She does her make up brilliantly and knows what suits the look you are after.

Book her and you’ll see she’s not just a model, she’s a portfolio investment!

Maxy said…

if I had only one choice left of a person to make images with, it would be Abby Jo – Fact.

 

Gem_Creative said…

I had a great shoot with Abby Jo at Space Studio as part of her studio day. Abby Jo is a great communicator and conversationalist, she knew exactly what I wanted and was very organised. Abby Jo adapts to all styles very easily and move between them seamlessly. Abby Jo poses naturally but will take direction well for those special images and ideas the photographer wants.

I will definitely be shooting with Abby Jo again this year and know we will create super images together.

I thoroughly recommend Abby Jo to all photographer of any level, Abby Jo is great to work with and will collaborate to help if required.

 

Iain Hamilton Photography said…

I hosted Abby Jo’s studio days this weekend at my studio (301) in preston, the communications arranging the weekend where second to none. The days went flawlessly and Abby Jo just flowed with pose after pose, in between shots and changes she made every photographer feel comfortable with plenty of chat and laughter as well as offering advice on posing and flattering cropping ( Sticking out tongue ) All in all it was such a pleasure to have Abby Jo in the studio, not only is she a brilliant model but one of the nicest and funniest people i have met, there was plenty of laughter from the moment she arrived on friday night till she left today. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and cant wait for the next one(s), Thank you Abby Jo Smile Smile

 

KB Photography said…

I worked with Abby Jo at Studio 31 in Preston today, i was very nervous but she immediately made me feel at ease. Abby Jo is extremely professional , bit most of all very friendly. She gave me lots of help & advice on how to shoot the images in order to gain the best outcomes. Will definatley book again!! Smile

 

Timeline said…

Worked with Abby Jo for the first time at her studio day at studio 301 in Preston today. What can be said about this young lady that has not already been said, but I will try anyway. Not only is Abby Jo stunningly gorgeous she is also a consummate professional and can create a look, expression or pose at will. She has a bubbly personality that is infectious and really makes for a fun and relaxed shoot. Abby Jo adds valuable input into a shoot which helps to create some amazing images, add to this the vast array of outfits she brings to a shoot, she is bound to have something to fit the bill. Abby Jo is a hard worker with a will and desire to give you exactly what you are looking for. I cannot recommend this lady highly enough!, love working with her and can’t wait till the next time. Thanks for an awesome shoot Abby Jo, Pete Smile

 

KissKiss-Photography said…

Wow and again I say wow! I shot Abby Jo earlier today at her model day at Studio 301 in Preston (Fab studio!). I briefly explained what I was after, she listened intently, offered some ideas of her own and then went on to deliver exactly what I was after, time after time, set after set! A very special lady. I have just downloaded the pics and I am stuck for choice! Thank you very much Abby Jo! Wonderful! We shall shoot again! And for those considering booking Abby Jo…. don’t hesitate, do it you will not regret it! At all, ever!

 

Raff said…

What can I say?… Peerless?…

It’s such a great, and positive (and rewarding) occasion meeting, and shooting with Abby Jo. I don’t know how she does it, but she manages to combine being genuinely brilliant and professional, with being very warm – and hilarious (no hilarious!).

I will shoot with Abby Jo again – for sure!

More than HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Thanks Abby Jo! x

 

Asgard Photography said…

Great shoot with Abby Jo at loud and flashy professional and fun as always. You only need look at Abby Jo’s port to see why she is in such demand. Abby Jo gives her all to help you get the shots you want. If you haven’t shot with Abby Jo yet then why not? Get her booked if you can you won’t be disappointed.

 

Michael. said…

Had a half day shoot with Abby Jo yesterday. She is so much fun.

Abby Jo gives great input into the shoot, she listens to what you want to achieve and does everything possible to make it happen. I would highly recommend Abby Jo and can’t wait for the opportunity to work with her again.

 

Jimmy Taylor said…

This was my second shoot with Abby Jo this time at her house with two other photographers.

Firstly – the house is amazing, very well styled with loads of room to shoot (no need for wide angle lenses).

Abby Jo is so much fun to shoot, we all had a brilliant day and captured loads of great images.

Abby Jo can pull off any genre, has outfits to match and poses effortlessly.

Will definitely be shooting Abby Jo again. Would recommend her to anyone.

 

ST3V3 CRAN3 said…

Not many people have the unique ability to blend a professional, dedicated, committed, hard working and focused work ethic, while maintaining such a fun, relaxed, humble and modest personality ….Abby Jo is one of those.

The vast array of amazing images on her port are testament to Abby Jo’s natural beauty, however, don’t be fooled, this woman works so hard at what she does. The attention to detail, the commitment to get things right, her focus on working with the photographer to nail the desired images is simply awesome. Abby Jo is in demand with some of the top photographers in the business, but is equally happy working with beginners, and she treats everyone with the same positive outlook and courteous respect.

I was a little apprehensive about working with such an experienced person, but my concerns soon drifted away as we started work. I came away from the shoot with a collection of incredible images for my port, as well as a wealth of knowledge that I picked up from working with such an experienced model.

I hope to work with Abby Jo again in the future, and feel very privileged to have photographed her …… thank you Abby Jo.

I’d been looking forward to shooting with Abby Jo for weeks and it was worth the wait. She’s a fantastic model and a really fun person. I loved every second and would definitely work with her again.

 

Jupiter said…

Lord have mercy!

I met Abby Jo and survived the experience…awesome! What a lovely person/model she was. The hardest thing for me was going through her gigantic suitcase full of various clothing items, but we got there in the end and had a great shoot.

I can’t thank you enough Abby Jo x

 

Image By Ayad said…

Abby Jo. That is her name. Also know as a barrel ‘o’ laughs and the best hugger you will meet!

Ok so about her as a model? Decent. KIDDING! She is brill! I have been wanting to book her for a long time I can’t even remember how long ago, but finally the day came and I had a unique idea for her to work with, so just you wait and see. (wink wink nudge nudge)

If you’ve read this far and have not booked Abby Jo yet, you’ll have me to answer for! HAHAH

 

JimNemer said…

I had a fantastic shoot with beautifully talented Abby Jo. Super model with enviable creativity. Hardly needs any direction but pleasingly reacts to any inspiring ideas. Charming young woman with lots of character and a contagious sense of humour. Working with her is a delightful visual adventure. Difficult to choose the best image. Must work with her again. Oh yes, love her cups of coffee as well.

Stevepic said…

My second time working with Abby Jo equally enjoyable as the first time if not more so.

Abby Jo’s enthusiasm and fun for her craft is infectious along with being a stunning beauty and posing ability second to non.

Abby Jo instinctively knows what works and what doesn’t, a true professional.

Looking forward to working with Abby Jo again.

Loris Marseglia Photography said…

On the occasion of her studio day at Eyebox Studio in Bristol I finally had the occasion to shoot with this INCREDIBLE creature! I waited for this day for months, travelled three hours across three counties and what a honour and delight!! Beautiful professional and so down to earth! Abby Jo is absolutely adorable on set and out, a chameleon in changing outfits (I though she was moving into the studio when she showed me her suitcase lol) and for the two hours we spent together we had so much fun that she forgot to take her lunch break and we carried on shooting! (sorry for that my dear!) Now I have more than 600 images to edit which will take me busy forever, and yet can’t wait for the next occasion to shoot with Abby Jo! Highly recommend (no need to say!!!!)

 

By Garth said…

My third shoot with Abby Jo, which clearly speaks for itself, A truly great model, Highly recommended.

A great morning at Eyebox Studio in Bristol, Arrived early and was ready to shootbang on time. Easy to work with and very helpful!, For a hobby photographer as myself, Abby Jo had great ideas and was happy to bounce ideas back and forth. Happy to change outfits and get straight back to shooting without wasting time within our time slot. Hope to get another booking when Abby Jo’s back in the SouthWest. Thanks yet again Abby Jo.

 

Ghost Light Photography said…

I had a tremendous afternoon working with Abby Jo during her studio weekend at Eyebox Studio in Bristol.

Pre-shoot communications were excellent and we discussed a number of ideas for the time we had available. Abby Jo was happy to discuss outfits for the various themes I wanted to cover and was able to provide options from within her huge suitcase.

Abby Jo was patient as we arranged the studio for each set and was great fun to be around. Perfectly comfortable free-posing, Abby Jo also listened to what little direction was needed and we moved rapidly through the various themes and ideas planned.

To be honest, it is pretty much impossible to take a bad picture of this fantastic model and I hope to work with her again I the future. Highly recommended.

 

Ultimate Images said…

I worked with Abby Jo at her fantastic house …… what a dream after generally confining myself to studios! The quality of the house and it’s “sets” are only surpassed by the fabulous Abby Jo herself. Her portfolio indicates her great versatility, face and figure; her references highlight her professionalism, ability and wonderful personality ….. all absolutely true. This was only the second time I have worked with Abby Jo and I hope there will be many more – simply can’t recommend her enough. Thanks Abby Jo Smile x

After having followed and looked up to this lady for quite a while, I finally had the honour of meeting her. She is a bigger fruitcake than me but as expected she is as lovely as can be, professional, queen of the pose and full of ideas, loved working with her in her beautiful home. Hope we get the opportunity again Smile

Ps: official fan girl!

I worked for a couple of hours shooting with Abby Jo at Barone’s studio last Saturday.

Abby Jo – you are a joy to work with; we had a fair few laughs, eh? That said, this was one of the most professional and productive shoots i have ever participated in =). I am used to directing models in my own inimitable manner (usually me talking shizzle punctuated by a bit of nudging), but working with Abby Jo was like some telepathic experience; I’d think it, then before I could say anything Abby Jo would strike it.

Decisions on styling, required images for each set up, pose and attitude were made quickly and understood perfectly… and whey man, this Durham lass can sizzle!

I’m looking forward to working with you again sometime Abby Jo =)

Highly recommended!!!!

 

Imagetech said…

Another highly productive shoot with this infectious lovely stunning lady, her posing fluency and ability seems to be endless,think its the mint imperials and the nutella that fuels her! Laughs aplenty, fabulous persona and attitude. Comes with a massive wardrobe in a very novel exploding suitcase! Smile I just love this lady, a deffo MEGA model. So very highly recommended,….Till next time………♥

I had a wonderful time working with Abby Jo at Barone Studio, though 2 hours went too quickly. We got some great shots. Abby Jo is very professional, fun and easy to work with. I highly recommend her and would definitely work with her again. Thanks Abby Jo.

 

Stillshot said…

Wow fall short of the epic photo shoot we had. A couple of hours flew by so quickly. I would definitely recommend booking a half or full day slot as i know i wish i had. Abby Jo you where a star. Big THANKS from me Smile

 

clphoto said…

Another great shoot with the awesome Abby Jo at her studio day. Abby Jo is a true professional in all aspects of her work and is a highly recommended addition to any portfolio.

 

Dusty said…

I had an amazing time working with Abby Jo yesterday and have to say it was an absolute pleasure. A truly enthusiastic dedicated and professional model she has a lovely vibrant personality a fantastic sense of humour and it’s a shoot ld be very keen to repeat. Thanks Abby Jo real class.

 

Frenchy Studio said…

Had a 3 hrs shoot with Abby Jo at John Barone Studio, and it was fantastic !!!

Abby Jo is incredibly nice and professional and it’s very easy to get on with her …

The shoot went very very well and I get some stunning pictures.

She’s a fantastic model and a total beauty.

Thanks Abby Jo for this fantastic shoot Smile xxx

 

John Haines said…

I did a shoot with chris carroll and campbell digital, so they have already said much of what I can say. I should add that not only did she work very hard (with 3 togs we had it easy), but she was cheerful and responsive all the way through the shoot – either finding the right pose as requested or noting that the lights might be a little out and should be re-positioned. She coped with us swapping round (frequently) and we have wildly differing levels of experience and image styles. She coped admirably. Couldn’t ask for more!

Fun and easy to work with, an absolute pleasure Smile – I look forward to the next time we meet…

 

Campbell Digital said…

I shot with the lovely Abby Jo this Sunday at NAS Studios, Basingstoke.

I had been introduced to her by Andrew Appleton and can totally see why he works with her so much.

Bubbly, funny, unpretentious and definitely a non-Diva, Abby Jo is however one of the most professional and gorgeous Models it has been my pleasure to work with. How many models give you a big hug when you finish a shoot?

She is able to hold fantastic poses maximising line and form and as I mentioned in an earlier reference, due to her experience, knows exactly how to bring out the best for your picture.

For this shoot, three of us booked her for a 1/2 day and she responded quickly and imaginatively to all the genres we could fit in.  wow – all I can say is that Abby Jo is up for a challenge and gives a 100%.

To all Southern photographers – book her soon – if we can tempt her down this way more – it can only be to the good Smile

Very highly recommended to pros and hobbyists both.

 

chris carroll said…

The amazing Abby Jo

I had the pleasure to work with Abby Jo , What can I say about this young lady ,That’s easy I have a list, Beautiful, stunning, funny, 100% professional in her work hardly needed direction, and delivers all a photographer expectations, what a pleasure it was for me not only meet this young lady, but to work with her .Note to Abby Jo thank you, till me meet again and we will. To all other photographers on here Abby Jo is the one to go for she is but Amazing.

 

DavidGB said…

I had a very enjoyable shoot with Abby Jo at The Photographic Studio in Kent.

She arrived on time with a massive suitcase full of clothes (which quickly seemed to take over the dressing room). I had a number of lighting setups and ideas which I wanted to use and Abby Jo was a patient and professional model, happily posing according to my suggestions and adding her own input during the shoot. She was an absolute joy to work with and the time flew past.

She is already on my “must shoot again” list.

floraforma said…

A wonderful shoot with Abby Jo at The Garden Studio. Excellent preshoot communication and she arrived exactly on time in full make up so ready to shoot. She brought a vast case of clothes, shoes and accessories.

I shot mostly art nude with some of my flowers. She was a delight to work with, lots of creative ideas, easy to direct when necessary. Time ran out much too quickly.

Abby Jo is very professional with a lovely, relaxed and mature attitude to her work. I thoroughly recommend her.

 

 

PeterB said…

I have wanted to work with Abby Jo for some time and I realised my ambition yesterday and I have to say that I was not disappointed and was very impressed with her. She is the most delightful person to work with and has a wonderful personality and she is a professional in every sense. She takes direction easily and nothing is too much trouble for her and together we created some great images. I highly recommend her and if you do book her you will not be disappointed. For our shoot she arrived ahead of time with an enormous wardrobe and lots of enthusiasm and I will certainly be looking to work with her again.

Thank Abby Jo you for a great day

Peter

PhotographybyGS said…

Worked some time ago with Abby Jo in a commercial shoot with a gangster theme and as a catwalk fashion at my own fashion show where she modelled fashion designs for non high street designers. She is very professional, very adaptable and very versatile. I have followed her work since then and would continue to recommend her without hesitation.

 

Howard Ashton-Jones said…

Shot with Abby Jo on Andrew Appleton’s Fashion in Paris workshop..

Well what can I say.. Abby Jo is Abby Jo, she is unique, bubbly, crazy (in the best way) awesome fun.. very professional, stunning, and a really talented model she adds more to a shoot than you could believe.

All I can say is do yourself and your portfolio a really big favour and book Abby Jo for a shoot. You will not be disappointed.

Definitely working together soon..

time just flew by, it was a real blast – got some really beautiful, sassy & sexy shots. Abby Jo poses are … well … wow …. actually WOW!

I got ‘keeper’ after ‘keeper’ – thank you so much Abby Jo!!

totally recommended!!

 

Sainte Croix said…

Four times now I have worked with Abby Jo…… four!

Will I never learn?!

I hope not because it is always great fun and I am always amazed how Abby Jo pulls off the perfect poses so easily. I’ve photographed her getting married twice, within 3 months! (But don’t worry; both stylised bridal shoots), in the 1930’s (I have access to a time machine) and on a 3 day shoot in Italy (yes the real Italy, the one with the sunshine, wine and delicious pizzas).

Looking forward to shoot number 5 already Abby Jo Smile

 

 

John D Clay said…

Just had 2nd shoot with wonderful, outstanding Abby Jo in West Malling Kent,She is excellent in being collaborative, did fashion to lingerie and art nude. shot on 35mm HP5 B / W film. She is wonderfully chatty and easy going but put 100% effort into getting great results. – her posing skills are superb and held great poses longer so I could capture them.

4hrs of fun and relation She is a wonderful asset to a photo shoot, can’t recommend enough. for the quality she give a photographer. look forward to together more in the future.

many Best thanks Abby Jo!

 

Conrad Webb said…

I booked Abby Jo for a fashion, fashion nude and art nude shoot at my WindmillArt Studio’s secret location A along with 2 other models, stylist, hair, MUA and 7 togs and all in collaboration with Vic of LovePhoto Studio. I’ve had the fortune to get to know and shoot with Abby Jo a few times this year both at my studio and on an a few Appleton Training workshops. There is nothing to be critical about, Abby Jo is prompt, prepared, happy, smiley, witty, straightforwards, sincere, funny, and I haven’t met another model who is more obsessed with the final image and her role in it’s creation. There’s no reason not to shoot with her and I can’t wait for my next turn….

Nickotine said…

I had the opportunity to work with Abby Jo during an excellent workshop hosted by Stephen Perry.

I am happy to report that Abby Jo is an absolute star! During the shoot all sorts of weird ideas were floated but Abby Jo took it all in her stride with a smile on her face. During our one to one session I explained my ideas and from that seed grew images that I am truly delighted with.

Maybe not apparent in all her images is her great sense of humour and calm persona. This for me made taking pictures a pleasure.

If Abby Jo didn’t live at the opposite end of the country I’d surly book her in a flash!

 

 

Dunstaffnage said…

What can I say that has not already been said a hundred times. Fab-u-lous!

Great fun to work with and extremely patient given my chaotic approach to shooting.

Arrived on time, totally professional throughout and even managed a smile or two!

Please let me repeat the experience again.

 

Lambert Davis Photography said…

I recently had the pleasure of working with Abby Jo for the first time. Her range of expressions and seamless posing is legionary, and I was not disappointed. Although the weather was challenging, she was fantastic, a total professional, well prepared, hardworking, totally dedicated to get job and most importantly, lots of fun to work with. I came away with a great set of images.

Very highly recommended.

Thank you Abby Jo, I look forward to working with you again.

 

Team Awesome said…

Someone like me writing a Reference for Abby Jo almost feels wrong. I had been hoping to work with Abby Jo for as long as I can actually remember and has always been the benchmark against which I measured other models. When she announced she would be in my area, I couldn’t miss the chance and quickly jumped on a booking.

Rather than go all Gushy about how amazing she is, Let me just say that after Waiting for so long to shoot with her, and building up such high expectations of her, I was not disappointed. And She is such a lovely character I could easily spend days on end working with her and never get tired or fed up.

Canescence said…

Had an absolutely brilliant shoot with Abby Jo, she’s a fabulous model and great fun to work with. She’s incredibly vivacious and has an infectious smile which means that not only do you great shots but you can’t help but enjoy yourself. Highly recommended, can’t wait to work with Abby Jo again.

 

John D Clay said…

Just worked with the wonderful Abby Jo on a day long shoot in Greenwich, and at Avery Hill park, she is wonderfully bubbly, very supporting in the photographer’s intentions. It a great challenglng day n travelling between locations. Made v creative use of the outside nature of the shoot Abby Jo was v approving of the imagery.

Great pre shoot communication very surprised, did alot in advance,

Great wardrobe choices will use more of them on next shoots in the future. She really enjoyed the day and would would recommend for quality, reliability, and a classy professional!

V many Thanks Abby Jo!

 

Banjoboy said…

Had a wonderful shoot with the delightful Abby Jo today at James Ward’s Space Studio at St Albans.

What a fanstic shoot is was too. Abby Jo is not only beautiful with a gorgeous figure but she is absolutley enchanting to work with. So much fun and a great sense of humour. Can’t recommend her higly enough and I’ve already asked her to pencil me in for her next visit south from Durham’s Fair City.

Thank you Abby Jo you’re a star and thank you too James for all your help.

Gunner said…

Had a couple of shoots with Abby Jo over the past two years,she is a superb model and genuine lady

Beautiful,funny,chatty,and has a fabulous figure,she needs little direction leaving you you to concentrate on what you are doing,fully recommend her to anyone Smile

 

 

Nomad said…

Had my 3rd shoot with Abby Jo and 1st at Windmill Art Centre. Abby Jo was her usual brilliant self happy to get messy and dirty to get the shots I wanted. She is so versatile that the time just flowed and we got through a large range of sets. Abby Jo happy to input into the shoot which always helps me. Must plan another one. Highly recommended. Big smile

 

Richards Photography said…

I have admired Abby Jo’s work for ages and was lucky to get to work with her today. She is a consummate professional and a really lovely person to work with. Abby Jo’s posing is effortless and very creative.

Thank you Abby Jo and I hope to work with you again.

 

Henry Murphy said…

I had been following Abby Jo’s work for a while and finally got the chance to work with her last week. Abby Jo is a very nice lady and very easy to work with. In the time we worked together, I believe we captured some good images with a variation of looks. Abby Jo is professional in every way.

Portal Works said…

Prior to working with Abby Jo this weekend, I had heard plenty of people wax lyrical about her as both a person and a model and I will second everything I had heard

I found it very easy to work with Abby Jo, she was very friendly and exceptionally talented. As someone still very new to the world of studio shoots, she made the session a breeze. We got through a few sets and I found Abby Jo very helpful and extremely professional every step of the way.

I recommend her very highly and hope that our paths cross again in the coming months to work on some new ideas.

 

Symagery said…

Wow ummm….. what to say… absolutely fantastic model to work with. Fun, cheerful, very friendly, good communication before the studio time. There is no limits to Abby Jo modeling skills, she works with you to get the photos you want and by god do they turn out well. Now I’m only a beginner, but working with a professional the results you can get with working with Abby Jo will be breath taking. Just look at the portfolio, her references. All I now need to do is to move Abby Jo and her house to Norfolk. I look forward to working with Abby Jo again. Cheers. Hugs Simon

Andy Manns said…

I agree with the previous comments, Abby Jo is amazing! Recommended!

 

 

sperry1 said…

Abby Jo is amazing. She is stunning and bright as a button and understands even my obscure refences to what I would like her to do. She has a great sense of humour and makes any shoot with her a lot of fun and a pleasure to work with. She does make really shit coffee but that’s the only negative thing I can throw at her. I can’t actually believe I got so many shots that all look so different in one day…even without good coffee.

I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

 

James Beddoes Photo said…

To sum things up quickly Abby Jo is amazing!

I booked Abby Jo for a Photography workshop I was running and from the first communication with her I knew I had the right model! She if friendly, sweet, lovely to everyone on set and super easy to get along with. Her communication before the shoot was amazing and she we totally prepared and left me feeling incredibly confident about the day!

Abby Jo Arrived early and fully stocked with everything she could possibly need. during the day she was lovely and supportive to all the people taking the workshop, keeping them entertained as well as supporting them and even offering them helpful advice. hell she did a better job then I did with some of the tutoring.

As a model she is amazing to watch, always thinking about the best way to make the best shot, constantly aware of the lighting as well as the angle the camera as well as coming up with endless poses and expressions to keep each shot original and interesting!

Abby Jo is simply the best there is, I cant recommend her enough and I would never hesitate to book her again!

gjp said…

What can I say that hasn’t been said before…so just to echo what has been said previously – Abby Jo is just a fantastically awesome model and lovely person

We shot numerous styles and she put up with all my mad ideas Smile

Thanks Abby Jo and hopefully we can work together in the future again

Highly recommended

 

 

PEM Photography said…

I photographed Abby Jo at Pipewall Hall in Northants a few months back, sadly it has taken me all this time to write a reference.

I really had a great time working with Abby Jo, she was hard working, helpful and not at all worried about trying out some of my crazy ideas, most of which occurred to me off the back of watching how Abby Jo adapted to her location like a posing chameleon.

She’s also a lot of fun to work with and about as beautiful as models get.

I would not hesitate to work with her again.

 

 

samthedog said…

Worked with the wonderful Abby Jo on duo shoot with Anna Rose at the ISpy studios, Gloucester. Abby Jo was a delight to work with; very slim, svelte and with bags of confidence. Abby Jo easily and without hesitation manages to achieve some stunning poses. We had a good deal of communications before the shoot regarding what I hoped to achieve working with Anna and though Abby Jo professed that she is not a dancer worked extremely well with Anna during the shoot to produce the poses I was looking for.

All in all this shoot whilst being very challenging was very rewarding through working with such a lovely model. Would not hesitate in highly recommending Abby Jo and certainly want to work together at some time.

 

 

AnnaRose said…

I had the great pleasure of working with this wonderful lady yesterday. Her pre-communications was impeccable and she is extremely organised. Abby Jo has a great petite frame and stunning looks. She knows how to pose and was very easy to work with. She also has a delightful personality and I loved our conversations in between shooting. Really loved working with Abby Jo and hope we can again one day. Highly recommended to all.

 

 

SimonPowell said…

Abby Jo’s suitcases came to stay with us for a few days.

Underneath the pile of bags we found Abby Jo and being the mad crazy loony she is, she agreed to shoot with me.

We did a very short and very relaxed shoot in some lovely soft natural light… Abby Jo is everything you’d expect and an absolute joy to work with.

There should be no hesitation in your mind… book her, now.

Hope to see her suitcases again in our part of the world.

 

Stretchy said…

I have been an admirer of Abby Jo’s work for some time. Today I finally got to shoot with her, on her Southwest tour. What can I say about Abby Jo that has not been said before. Professional, Stunning, Stylish, Daring, lovely easy going nature and to top it off she is total fun, Which to me is what its all about. I only wished I had longer to work with her. A total star, One of the best models around. 100% recommend and I hopefully will work with her in the future. Thank you Abby Jo Smile

 

DavidBallard said…

I had another great shoot with Abby Jo at Woodchester Mansion today. I have worked with Abby Jo before and we had a good shoot and a great laugh too! She has an irrepressible sense of humour and the time flew by! Thanks again Abby Jo for a great shoot and look forward to contacting you soon when I am up your way.

 

 

RobinH said…

Had a really great shoot with Abby Jo last week. She was very professional and patient with me as I messed about with my lights. We shot outdoors as well which was great fun. Abby Jo is a great model to work with and I highly recommend her.

 

 

John Banks Photography said…

Since I’ve been working with models, there have been a few that you know, within minutes, that you’ve made a wise decision in booking. Abby Jo is one of these models.

I had a fair idea that we’d get on well prior to the day in fact, as her pre-shoot communication was friendly, full of banter, and indicated that she was well grounded and a lot of fun. On all counts, this was proven to be the case, and the day of the photos itself continued in a similar vein.

Oozing confidence and charm, she displayed the kind of proficiency that comes from her experience as a model, her relaxed, down to earth nature, and the genuine warmth of her personality.

With some people you get none of the above… with the majority you’re part way there… then, with the likes of Zara, you pretty much get all you could hope for. For this reason, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her for any suitable projects or bookings.

There are other reasons why I would recommend her, but you’ll already be well aware of these from the images in her portfolio.

A second shoot with her is already in the diary… I just need to ready the facial muscles for all the smiles that result from working together.

 

Roj Smith said…

Abby Jo is such a nice and friendly person, we had a great fun shoot. Abby Jo was very professional with immaculate make up and appearance and a great ability to pose and take direction too. She was invaluable at discussing ideas and she made the whole shoot run very smoothly.

I have no hesitation in recommending Abby Jo and I can’t wait until we can work together again.

 

Looks Photography said…

Had the most enjoyable pleasure of working for the first time with Abby Jo on Friday.

Abby Jo is a true professional model with a really great personality, is fun to shoot with Smile and with excellent effortless posing abilities.

An extremely versatile, and very talented model, with a gorgeous slim figure, and attractive features.

Many thanks Abby Jo, ” loved every minute ” Smile

Extremely Highly Recommended.

 

 

Tony Smith said…

Wow. what can I say. I got my first shoot with Abby Jo today at CCM Studios.

She is absolutely fantastic to shoot with. Huge wardrobe, great looks, and a repertoire of poses that never seems to run out.

I loved every second of the time with her, and would highly highly recommend her. I cannot wait to shoot with her again sometime.

Thank you Abby Jo, I was a wee bit nervous shooting with you, but relaxed quickly due to how much fun you were. Smile

 

Stevepic said…

A shoot with Abby Jo is an experience not to be missed and should be on every photographers people to work with list.

A wonderfully experienced model with natural beauty, great figure with a never ending repertoire of poses

along with a look of class and elegance.

Consummate professional with the ability to put you at ease no matter what your level of ability is.

Highly recommended, a real pleasure to work with.

Simon Rawsthorn said…

Having seen much of Abby Jo’s great portfolio for a good while, we arranged to shoot location around Preston in the evening, doing fashion in the park and city centre. We had plenty to talk about and got on great instantly. Having wanted to work with someone of Abby Jo’s experience to learn more from her, I got plenty and more from the shoot. As i’m sure everyone else will say the same that it was a shoot that was very much at ease and everything just happened naturally. I’d give high recommendations to anyone who has yet to work with Abby Jo to do so if you have the opportunity. Many Thanks

 

Newchapter said…

Was fortunate to shoot Abby Jo in her beautiful home (which is a converted chapel) . it was my first shoot with Abby Jo and she was a true professional. Straight into work and throughing suggestions at us. I will say this girl is a right laugh to shoot with. We did more laughing than shooting. Abby Jo requires no direction and is extremely experienced. She knows what will work and what won’t. Can’t wait for her to be in the Midlands for another shoot. Recommend her to any one with any experience behind the camera

 

SimpLeeStudio said…

Was lucky enough to be able to shoot with Abby Jo at a creative night at Loud and Flashy. As well as giving me some helpful tips and advice, Abby Jo is a pleasure to work with. She is happy enough to go into pose after pose or to take direction so you can capture the image you want. Would love to work with Abby Jo again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

 

Lonsdale Photography said…

I had the pleasure of shooting with Abby Jo at her beautiful home yesterday, I was welcomed with open arms, a huge smile and a cuppa! The perfect start to any shoot. Abby Jo has a real presence in front of the camera and her enthusiasm and energy is infectious, we spent the whole afternoon laughing and joking, she worked hard producing fantastic poses for shot after shot and had some great ideas of what looks good and even how we could modify some of the lighting for different results. Through multiple wardrobe changes and shooting styles Abby Jo isn’t afraid to experiment.

I would highly recommend shooting with Abby Jo, she’s friendly, polite and 110% dedicated to making sure we got the images we wanted and a genuine hard worker! I’m looking forward to working with her again in the near future.

Don’t delay – book her today!

Shot last year

Jamila said…

I assisted on a shoot with the Lovely Abby Jo and Pete last week and had a lot of fun. Abby Jo was very professional with a great sense of humour and she was very easy to get on with. She had such variety of poses and a large wardrobe to chose from. Looking forward to shooting her myself! I highly recommend her to all photographers, MUAs and assistants. Thanks Abby Jo.

 

Vince Nicoll said…

Couldn’t believe my luck when Abby Jo responded to one of my casting calls, so I jumped at the chance to work with her.

She was so laid back and easy to work with that the time just flew by. She made me feel right at ease even though I am a relative beginner. Will certainly be working with Abby Jo again as soon as possible as we had so much we didn’t manage to fit in.

Lovely, sweet person who is a gem to work with. Don’t pass up the chance to work with Abby Jo.

 

Don Miguel said…

Friday the 27th: – I had the delightful pleasure of shooting with Abby Jo and sampling her hospitality at her brilliantly converted church home (loads of space and character).

I had a fabulous day  as I was getting to grips with my new camera and experimenting with my lighting – Strobe and Speedlight’s. Abby Jo was very patient and accommodating and I ran out of steam long before Abby Jo. Highly recommend working with the girl as I will again as soon as Abby Jo deigns to give me a shooting date.

Thank you Abby Jo Thumbs down!

 

PBTPhoto said…

Was lucky enough to shoot with Abby Jo whilst she was in my local area.

She is lovely & very down to earth but when it’s time to put her game face on she’s is super professional. She arrived with what can only be described as THE biggest suitcase in the whole world chocked full of outfits, shoes and accessories – no one could ever say she doesn’t come prepared!

The shoot disappeared in the blink of an eye as it was just so easy and I got some amazing images.

Next time she’s in the area I will certainly want to work with her again.

Shot last year

Sainte Croix said…

What can I say, Abby Jo is nothing short of brilliant. She works perfectly with or without direction, knows the light, always looks fantastic, treats her modelling in a professional manner and is a lovely friendly person too. If we were not at opposite ends of the country I would be wanting to work with Abby Jo on a weekly basis. Definitely the best I have worked with. Thank you Abby Jo Smile

 

AG Photography Durham said…

I had the great pleasure of working with Abby Jo on a creative night at Loud and Flashy studios. She was a great model, very adapt at creating poses without direction and also a wealth of knowledge and advice how to maximise the image being created. I would happily recommend Abby Jo to any photographer, or any level and I look forward to working with Abby Jo in the future.

 

RL Images said…

I had a great shoot with Abby Jo yesterday. Abby Jo is fantastic to work with and has a great personality. Nothing is too much, including getting stung to pieces to get into a middle of a corn field. I would highly recommend Abby Jo and very much look forward to working with her again.

 

Barney Douglas said…

I have just had the enormous pleasure of welcoming Abby Jo to my studio along with Andrew Appleton undertaking high quality tuition to visiting photographers. And somewhere in the middle of the day I got a few minutes with Abby Jo to myself. Abby Jo is amazing – effortless – professional – superb. I could go on with my appreciation of her skill and superb presence in front of the camera for hours. Something I will treasure for years to come.

 

daveb32 said…

Stunning model with a fabulous personality. Abby Jo’s bubbly and enthusiastic, then put her in front of the camera and it’s as if some switched her on so she goes into overdrive. She’s what you want from a professional model, great attitude and work ethic, good communications during the shoot to get the results and willing to have a go at things. Loved every minute of the oh to brief shoot. Highly recommended.

 

Conrad Webb said…

Second time I was fortunate to shoot with Abby Jo was on an Andrew Appleton workshop in Italy and already I’ve got plans to shoot her again and in the near future. The references below are all true. If you can create the opportunity to shoot with this great model then just do it – there could never be any regrets….. and to top it all she is very very funny…which for me is the icing on the cake.

 

Campbell Digital said…

Abby Jo is an amazing find – beautiful, poised, hard working, highly professional, vivacious – she even offered to buy the teas after the shot – what’s not to love?

She is a really fun person with a down to earth attitude who is fully comfortable in her own skin and knows exactly how to show herself at her best – it shows in all the shots I’ve seen of her.

Abby Jo moves from pose to pose and switches style as required effortlessly and seamlessly. We were doing an outside night shot in Brighton and even though she was obviously cold, didn’t complain once. Even a drunk cyclist riding round and round us one time didn’t faze her at all!

The huge benefit of employing a highly experienced model such as Abby Jo is that she will get on with doing what is required to maximise making real the vision for the shoot, allowing you to concentrate on taking the images rather than directing the model as well.

I loved working with her – book her – you will too!

 

Dade Freeman said…

Abby Jo is wonderfully professional and full of personality. She not only works the location but also the camera. A pleasure to photograph and to work with. I look forward to doing it again.

 

Bokehlicious said…

I’ve wanted to shoot with Abby Jo for a long time, and today we did as part of a group tuition shoot. Did she meet my high expectations? No, she exceeded them by far! She was supremely patient with us whilst 6 of us were shooting away in the middle of Cambridge on a busy Friday night – not an easy feat by any means.

She’s got a great personality and she works really hard to get the best possible shots, plus she looks gorgeous Smile

100% recommended – can’t wait until next time Smile

 

Andy Meany said…

Abby Jo’s experience and skill shows in her relaxed and confident posing in front of the camera. After agreeing the frame work of the shoot she moves from pose to pose with ease either with or without direction ensuring a great range of images. It was a real pleasure having the opportunity to photograph her and I look forward to the next time.

 

Dingo Dave said…

I had my first shoot with Abby Jo on Sunday at Windmill Art Studio. Abby Jo is the ultimate professional and works passionately despite feeling under the weather. She kept giving pose after pose with limited direction from me, must work on that. What a lovely lady she is, of course I highly recommend her, who wouldn’t!

 

SteveBaz said…

I had the pleasure of working with Abby Jo at her home a couple of weeks ago.

What a great model & a lovely person.

Abby Jo was focussed on getting the best images together & offered helpful suggestions & idea’s.

I cannot recommend Abby Jo highly enough & I look forward to working together again in the near future.

Cheers Steve

 

Martyn Harvey said…

Had a great time learning and shooting with Abby Jo on one of Andrew Appletons 1-2-1 sessions. Abby Jo was fantastic, really friendly and great at helping out by offering various tips and advice alongside Andrews tuition. Highly recommended, look forward to shooting again soon!

I’ve been wanting to work with Abby Jo for well over a year now, and finally got round to arranging a shoot with her. Quick replies from her when discussing the shoot ideas, which is always a plus! We arranged to shoot from her home and I was immediately offered a drink and much obliged! For the actual shoot Abby Jo was perfect, no other word to use really! She needs no real direction for poses as it comes so natural to her. Her wardrobe is so expansive it is literally spilling out of it’s own room. Seriously, if you have any doubts about Abby Jo, please just book her!!! She is amazing and as professional as you can get. She also makes flapjacks and tries to fatten you up a bit before you leave Sticking out tongue

I had the pleasure of shooting Abby Jo in Italy on an Andrew Appleton trip. The banter, professionalism, laughter, dedication, long hours, 6 costume changes done with great humour and lots of Italian food. Her love of chocolate did find her out. Abby Jo works well with and without direction and if you get the chance do work with her you will enjoy it and get great pictures. Off to shoot her again on Saturday!

 

kwamea said…

Had on my want to work with list for a while. We had 2 shoots close together. One in the great outdoors on a rare weekend of nice northwest weather and one at her home. We had been having banter for a while prior to the shoots and I can confirm Abby Jo is a great model and person (if a little well a lot nuts)

We got some cracking images on both shoots and Abby Jo knows how to work it without direction and is able to adapt easily to the ideas put her way.

I recommend highly and wouldn’t hesitate to work with again. x

 

Jimmy Taylor said…

I’ve wanted to shoot Abby Jo for ages and when I saw she was going to be in my area at on short notice I jumped at the chance. Abby Jo’s communication was great, the shoot was arranged within a couple of messages. Arrived at the studio on time (before me), with the biggest and heaviest bag I have ever seen. Abby Jo is an excellent model, really fun to shoot and produces great results. Highly recommended, would love to shoot again.

 

KirksPix said…

What an lovely person, very welcoming, warm & sincere, even supplied tea & biscuits in her home where we shot, excellent model who made the whole shoot very easy. I heartily recommend Abby Jo – not that she needs it. Thanks very much for your time Abby Jo

 

Vicky Burns said…

Finally I got to meet the highly spoke of Abby Jo, I have heard so much about Abby Jo and ALL positive, I was not disappointed and she lived up to what everyone said about her. Lovely, friendly, chatty, professional, clearly stunning with a body to die for I could go on and on. We got to shoot together and I’m really looking forward to seeing the results Big smile

 

Williamwj said…

An afternoon with Abby Jo, what more can one say. We had some great images of sheep, tractors and what was clearly a D road in the wastelands of Lancashire all messaged while en route with added pieces of pizza ( how does she multi task that way).

Back to the shoot, as ever Abby Jo is superb, and allowed the creation of some very Newtonesque images with the beautiful Vicky B before moving onto some solo work.

Nothing I can write can add anything . Abby Jo is just Abby Jo a great model , great person who delivers each time she is asked ( and always with a laugh at the ready).

This was my first shoot outside I of a studio day and my second in a location where I wanted to use and create different looks and models.

Abby Jo is just a marvellous model and person. Thank you so much for today

 

PS said…

Abby Jo is the epitome of a professional model – make up and hair sorted upon arrival for the shoot. Great attitude and willingness to achieve the desired images. Having worked with probably 150+ models over the last 10 years, Abby Jo would be in my top 5 (would say 3 but she’d put her rates up ).

Hope the opportunity arrives in the future to work together again – bit of a star ⭐

 

Jannine T Photography said…

OH MY!!

Abby Jo..

Well, I have worked briefly with Abby Jo on 2 separate occasions. Both Occasions, on training/portfolio building day with Andrew Appleton & Andrew Griffiths.

All I can really say is WOW.

What Abby Jo doesn’t know about throwing shapes is not worth knowing, She is like a chameleon, Whatever setting, look or feel you you are after Abby Jo seems to just adapt to the mood in an instant. I was excited and nervous to be working with Abby Jo as she has such a high status in the Modelling industry, but as soon as we met and had a little chat, I realised, she is mad as a box of frogs and we would get on just fine. Wink

Overall I found Abby Jo humble, welcoming and very professional, I would highly recommend this young lady to any photographer of any level. She is a MUST for your portfolio… Book Her Now. x

 

Photosbymarshall said…

I had the great pleasure of working with Abby Jo today. From the outset I was made to feel most welcome in her home for the shoot and after a brief discussion we set to and started the shoot as discussed. Abby Jo has so many costumes it was hard to choose as to what colour scheme to use, she soon sorted that out. The whole shoot including the outside shots went with out a hitch. For those photographers who have yet to work with Abby Jo I would highly recommend her no matter what your experience is, all I can say is that I look forward to another shoot with Abby Jo in a studio. Abby Jo Thanks for a great afternoon

 

NicoM said…

Had the absolute pleasure to shoot with Abby Jo on a training course held at Millwoood studios with Andrew Appleton. She was not only a fantastic model you posed with ease but she was warm, funny and all round a good egg.

I would definitely recommend Abby Jo and hope to do a 121 shoot with her asap. Thanks for a great fun day Abby Jo

Had an amazing shoot with Abby Jo at a Model day at Baron’es Studio. We got some fantastic results and I loved working with her. Thank you Abby Jo, hope to shoot again sometime. Smile

 

Steve Haywood said…

I had the pleasure of shooting with Abby Jo at Andrew Appleton’s Concept to Completion workshop yesterday. Abby Jo is a very professional model, so versatile, poses fantastically and was such fun to work with. I would highly recommend working with Abby Jo and look forward to the next time we shoot together.

 

RFimages said…

Had a fantastic shoot with Abby Jo, she was open to all my ideas and had input as well which is great, the weather was mixed but this did not put Abby Jo off climbing trees and getting soaking wet!

Would love to shoot with Abby Jo again, true professional. Thanks Smile

 

Pucci said…

Abby Jo – A great mix of Crazy, Professionalism and creativity. I have rarely worked with a model who needed virtually no direction, only suggestion. she makes great shapes, great poses and with her strong features, meant I got more from my images than expected.

Would definitely recommend and we are already discussing our next shoot

John Downward said…

I shot with Abby Jo on a ‘Night Stalking’ Workshop run by Eddie Cheng and have to say she was a pleasure to work with from start to finish, thoroughly enjoyed the shoot from start to finish and will definitely be booking a 1-2-1 shoot ASAP to get more time to shoot Smile

whole-heartedly recommend anyone to book and shoot with Abby Jo !!

John

 

Brads {SMB Photography} said…

Shot with Abby Jo yesterday and can honestly say you couldn’t find a better model. She is bright, funny, beautiful and one of the very best models I have worked with.

She is well prepared, great at posing and very willing to work to get the shot.

There is a reason she is so popular. If you get the chance, book her.

 

Raff said…

I met and worked with Abby Jo for the first time today. Supreme modelling ability; expressive and committed to every shot – she was perfect! I’m definitely looking forward to shooting with Abby Jo again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

 

Dominic Dean said…

Worked with Abby Jo today. Abby Jo is an excellent model and top of her game to be honest. Totally professional, easy and fun to shoot. Open to constructive ideas, alreday thinking about the next shoot! Awesome!

 

robhillphoto said…

Having met Abby Jo twice on courses, I finally got the opportunity to work with her. As you would expect – everything was perfect – great communication beforehand – arrived fully prepared and ready to go.

Abby Jo is very easy to work with – very easy going – nothing is too much trouble – patient and allows you time to experiment – pleasant and fun to have in the studio and works really hard – we got an amazing amount achieved in 4 hours.

As you’d expect from a model of this calibre she poses without direction, but always responds to photographer input. She make a positive contribution to the shoot with her ideas.

One of the very best!

 

Nomad said…

This was my second shoot with Abby Jo and she makes the whole process so easy. Great to work with,fun to talk to. Would happily walk through a brick wall to shoot with Abby Jo again ( taking camera off first!). Get shooting with Abby Jo.

 

Harvey Gordon said…

This is th second time I have shot with Abby Jo. She is fantastic! A great model that contiues to pull great poses and shapes time after time. Such fun to work with and an incredibly nice down to earth person. Highly recommended

 

Terry Joslin said…

Spent an evening with Abby Jo in a group shoot on the streets of London, worked very hard, had fun with her and great to be with and to work with.

 

Josh Chai said…

I worked with Abby Jo twice recently – once on a portfolio building day and a second time on a 2-hr studio sessions with her.

Abby Jo is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most extraordinarily talented models I have the privilege to work with. She is a great portrayer of mood and emotion with boundless artistic energy; and her portfolio just showed how she excelled in almost every genre of photography imaginable. She often creates the most beautiful lines with her body and this, in combination of her expressive face, gave her images a signature “edge” so often lacking in other models. She flows between elegant and edgy poses with such ease that it was like watching an accomplished actress at work!

I immensely enjoyed working with her and have already booked a whole day shooting session with her later in the summer doing some dramatic bridal portraits which I simply cannot wait!

Thank you Abby Jo for being so wonderfulSmile

 

LMason said…

A chance encounter at the Gloucester Social resulted in Abby Jo staying with us for a week in March and I spent just half-an-hour shooting with her before she finally dashed out of the door – you can see the resulting image on my portfolio Big smile

An awesome model, yes, but also an awesome house-guest and now a friend: Oryx and I are both looking forward to Abby Jo’s next visit, later this year, when we’ll hopefully plan a formal shoot.

Love her to pieces!

 

fazzer said…

Worked with Abby Jo today at her home, stunning young lady and fantastic model, 3 hours just flew by

Would I recommend Abby Jo 110% YES awesome figure and looks and can through fabulous poses one after another

Abby Jo was funny friendly and nothing was to much trouble

Can’t wait to work with her again

 

Ultimate Images said…

I have wanted to work with Abby Jo for a long time and finally got the chance to do so on 20th April 2014. Whilst the wait was certainly worth it – I so wish I had done it sooner. Anybody looking at this page will already know, or soon realise, what a superb model Abby Jo is but nevertheless I would like to add my own recommendation to the long list she already has. Simply brilliant …….. thanks Abby Jo and I certainly don’t intend to leave it so long next time – I think I’m coming to County Durham even if I have to walk it! Smile x

 

Darryl J Dennis said…

Had the pleasure of working with this fantastic lady for 2 hours during her studio day at Saracen House, and what an awesome 2 hours it was too.

Abby Jo’s not just highly professional, working hard to get the images I was after, but was also great fun to shoot with.

I HAVE to work work with this outstanding model again, hopefully for a full day next time.

Needsless to say Abby Jo gets a huge recommendation from me.

 

RHM Photographic said…

Finally got to shoot the delightful Abby Jo at Saracen House Studio. Abby Jo is such a professional: moving effortlessly between poses and giving me 100% (even though I wasn’t in the zone that day). Not even remotely diva-esque either; her laugh is infectious too so we had a great time. Also plays nicely with others: I had Ali Brooks along with me and they shot together for part of it. I would heartily recommend Abby Jo to any photographers, regardless of their experience – you’ll get great results!

 

Danny’s Dolly Mixtures said…

I had worked with Abby Jo before on a workshop so I was looking forward to working with her on a studio 1 to 1. I should have booked two hours. Really enjoyed the hour fabulous company fabulous model just fabulous, Thanks Abby Jo Smile

 

Imagetech said…

Had a really productive weekday with Abby Jo, managed to nail her down between engagements,shoot was at her home and I had so much I wanted to do but as usual my mood board consists of 10% planning the rest is “winging it” Abby Jo is.as previously said, down to earth ,STUNNING….very friendly and chatty, felt like I’d known her for years, just what is needed to settle the nerves! As a model she is AWESOME! Make up. brill, huge wardrobe, all you would expect from a highly versatile PROFESSIONAL model. Posing yet again so fluent from powerful angular editorial to soft seductive boudoir with expressions aplenty. I have plenty of room for a model like Abby Jo in my work so I will be shooting her again. Highly recommended and I don’t blow smoke up anyones butt!

 

FlashingBlade said…

Second shoot with Abby Jo at the weekend as part of a portfolio builder day with Andrew Appleton. Even though I only had about 20 mins with her she was a modelling chameleon, from lingerie, to vintage fashion, to murderous. I would say she was responsible for two of my top 5 shots of the day.

Again very highly recommended if you can a) pin her down ( metaphorically of course) and B) supply with jelly babies.

 

Aspiring Cecil said…

I had the privilege of working with Abby Jo last week. I have wanted to work with Abby Jo for some time. I must say she one of the most professional models I have ever worked with, she is hard working, has fantastic attention to detail, took direction really well, along with such a wide breath of experience, strong poses and fantastic features.

I cannot wait to work with Abby Jo again, she has an amazing studio in a stunning barn conversion, with some really varied countryside around. Abby Jo and her partner were like old school friends, I cannot thank them enough for their kindness & hospitality.

Thank you for a great and fun shoot and all the tea & bacon. Would definitely recommend, cannot wait to work with Abby Jo again, I would encourage amateurs like myself to work with someone with Abby Jo’s calibre it will do no end of good to your portfolio!

Aspiring Cecil

 

DavLin Photography said…

Brilliant model highly recommended Smile

Abby Jo is everything you want from a model. Pleasant, funny, beautiful, sexy, edgy, fearless, open to ideas and commits to every shot. A really fantastic profession model. I look forward to working with her again soon. Wind her up and watch her go (as somebody far more talented that me said)!

I was very lucky to do a shoot with Abby Jo on Monday and Wednesday this week.

Like all the references here I have nothing but positive things to say.

This girl really does have it all, Stunningly Beautiful, with an amazing body which is only matched by her fun friendly personality.

I enjoyed the shoot so much on Monday that when I saw her casting for the Wednesday I Jumped at the opportunity.

If you’re looking for a truly professional yet friendly model, Abby Jo is the model for you.

Thank you again Abby Jo, will definitely be looking out for your next trip to Bristol

Porlus said…

Had my second great shoot with the wonderfully delightful Abby Jo at Full Moon Studio.

Abby Jo is so keen and energetic and dedicated to getting the shot!

Her talent speaks volumes whilst working with her, as she instinctively knows what you need her to do for the shot being created.

Abby Jo is not only a great professional, but a lovely humorous person, who makes each shoot fun.

So if you haven’t shot with Abby Jo yet, I urge all photographers and models to do so soon!

Cheers Lass! X

 

ThePhotographicStudio said…

Abby Jo Was The Model For The 2 Day Workshop By Andrew Appleton, That I Hosted At My Studio. Zara Didn’t Disappoint, A Truly Magnificent Model, A Lovely Lady & Great Fun To Have Around. She Was Brilliant With The Clients; Putting Them At Ease, Answering Any Questions They Had, And Damn This Women Can Pose!! Id Be Delighted For Abby Jo To Visit Us Again, And Would Certainly Recommend Her.

 

Bradders said…

I had an excellent shoot with Abby Jo at my home studio yesterday.

She poses naturally and takes directions very well. I highly recommend Abby Jo to other photographers, you will not be disappointed. I look forward to arranging future shoots with Abby Jo when she is in the area again.

Abby Jo was a joy to shoot. A stunningly beautiful model with a wonderful personality to match, who knows how to pose and get the best out of every shot.

I would love to get an opportunity to work with Abby Jo again.

 

Nomad said…

Had my first shoot with Abby Jo and also my first at home. Abby Jo’s pre comms were great and kept in touch leading up to the day. Abby Jo is very easy to work with, happy to go with ideas but also happy to contribute to the shot which is a great help. Very professional and a good listener to my ramblings. Very highly recommended ( but you all know that anyway). Would love to work with Abby Jo again.

 

Mussy said…

We shot together on one of Mr Appleton’s workshop’s and I must say that before meeting with Abby Jo it was a bit daunting, but within a few minutes of chatting was made to feel very much at ease.

Abby Jo has a great working attitude and an amazing ability to switch between moods

Would love to work with her again in the future and is highly recommended.

 

Clear Lens Photography said…

Today was a landmark day, I got to shoot with Abby Jo at last! She is as funny and delightful to work with as she is beautiful and professional.

Shooting her is so easy, she has wonderful bubbly personality and you feel instantly relaxed and at ease. Her posing is amazing, I hardly had to say anything at all as Abby Jo was able to hit pose after pose.

You simply must book her. She really is that good.

Great pot of tea too! Wink

 

Alan Walker ( AWimagez ) said…

I got to shoot the lovely and funny Abby Jo at one of Andrew Appletons course’s. Definitely recommend this young lady as she is amazing and edgy and gives great poses and facial expressions. Thanks Abby Jo XX

 

Harvey Gordon said…

I had the pleasure of shooting with Abby Jo at a one to one workshop with Andrew Appleton and I was really impressed by her modelling skill, personality and down to earth niceness. If you ever get the chance to shoot with Abby Jo, don’t think twice, just book her! Highly recommended.

 

FlashingBlade said…

A warm and friendly atmosphere at the shoot and even though there was no big set or studio and a small space to work in Abby Jo always gave her best, even when the shots were not quite working.

Patient, funny and beautiful in all sorts of ways.

She is a very busy model and It is easy to see why.

A privilege to work with her. I’d say what ever your experience level you would feel comfortable and reassured you will get quality shots and a great time,

 

Sponge870 said…

I shot with Abby Jo at Saracen house as part of a 1-2-1 training session, what can I say about this lady! Not only beautiful but funny too. She did everything possible to make our time together as productive as possibles even if the ideas were a little bonkers. Professional, beautiful and funny what more do you need?

 

lindsayrobsonphotography said…

Abby Jo is an amazing person to work with true pro every time you won’t be disappointed to work with her if you get the chance Smile

 

zoomman said…

I was fortunate enough to have had the pleasure of Abby Jo last week..

I remain shell shocked..

She has everything any photographer would ever need in a model..I needn’t ramble on about how stunningly beautiful she is,how effortlessly she models etc..has all been said before..many times.

All I will add is::

If you want to shoot with a truly outstanding,professional model..

LOOK NO FURTHER..

JUST BOOK ABBY JO!

 

Kevin Richardson Photography said…

Worked with the amazing and stunningly gorgeous Abby Jo today, what can I say that hasn’t already been said, Abby Jo poses effortlessly and her facial expressions give a different look to each and every shot taken. It was also very good of Abby Jo to offer suggestions on backgrounds and styles and what worked best with a particular outfit.

Can’t wait for our next shoot which will no doubt be awesome!

 

dmbphotographer said…

I worked with the slightly mad but completely gorgeous Abby Jo a couple of years ago. Her home set up is fantastic with lots of opportunities to shoot and she is just amazing. Her communication is terrific, she adds ideas and takes direction well. Flexible and diverse her range of poses and facial expressions are too many to mention. I’d work with Abby Jo anytime and recommend you do soon. The workshops she creates look like fantastic value and are great for photographers of any level but especially newer ones that may have reservations about posing, lights, etc and want to learn from watching others.

 

McGillicuddy said…

HIGHLY recommended…

 

Simon at FilmPhoto said…

Worked with Abby Jo on a one-on-one teaching session. Very happy, very patient, very enthusiastic and looks lovely. It was the first time I had met Abby Jo and I will definitely be shooting with her myself.

 

Doug Ross said…

I had an amazing couple of days with Abby Jo this autumn. Abby Jo has a very wide range of styles that she works superbly with, from comic to sublime. Graceful. Expressive. Dynamic. Stunning. A pleasure to work with. And more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

 

Blisters said…

I was lucky enough to work with zara last week on a one to one training session she is amazing, very friendly and beautiful and a pleasure to work with she pulls some amazing poses and has a giggle on the way,Hopefully i will work with her again and would recommend her highly to anyone.

 

John Tuckey (JRT) said…

Simply put Abby Jo is one of the most talented and beautiful women I have met. She delivers a range from elegance to mischievous to smouldering with ease. will definitely book again soon. Highly recommended.

 

BoudoirFusionPhotography said…

We had the pleasure of hosting Abby Jo in South Africa for a series of workshops as well as having the opportunity to shoot her. She is personable, creative in her posing and easy going. She is able to create a number of different looks in a very short space of time. She is a true professional and we would highly recommend her as a model.

 

Andrew Appleton said…

It’s almost 6 months since my first shoot with Abby Jo, during that time we have done a number of workshops together and collaborated on several projects.

During the first two weeks of November Abby Jo accompanied me to South Africa to present at Photo Film Expo and run 4 workshops. I couldn’t have had a better travelling companion or co-presenter. Abby Jo worked so hard to make the trip a success and won over the hearts of many SA photographers.

She really is one of the best models around and fortunately we have a lot planned together for the end of 2013 and throughout 2014 with more workshops, collaborations and a couple of overseas tours.

Thanks for all your help and inspiration, you are a star!

 

EyeDream said…

Had a great shoot with Abby Jo a few months ago. She’s a wonderful girl and a brilliant model who can work well with direction, or if you just want her to do her thing? then she can naturally flow pose with out any guidance and your guaranteed to get some fantastic images.

I can highly recommend Abby Jo to any photographer wanting to hire an experienced model, she’s chatty, friendly, confident and great fun to work with Smile just make sure you bring plenty of memory cards and a good selection of tunes Wink

 

Gez said…

What can I say that hasn’t been said already…. Abby Jo was the first professional model I have worked with and her ability shines through. She has such a lovely personality, very professional but with a sense of humour and an attitude that puts you at ease straight away. I hope to work with Abby Jo again in the future.

Thanks Abby Jo.

Philip Cormack said…

I had the pleasure of working with Abby Jo at the Pavilion Photographic Studio. Great fun to work with, really light hearted and good fun throughout the shoot.

Worked really hard to get some great images.

Anthony Paul said…

I met Zara on my first ever studio shoot, this lady is an absolute pleasure to work with. Warm, friendly, patient and very helpful as well as being absolutely gorgeous. I plan on working with Abby Jo again and HIGHLY recommend her. Thank you Abby Jo x

 

robhillphoto said…

My first shoot with Abby Jo was an Andrew Appleton training day at Saracen House Studio. The day called for a number of different genres and Abby Jo excelled at them all. She is a truly professional model with a great sense of humor and I’d love to work with her again when she ventures down south again….. Thoroughly Recommended!

 

DavidBallard said…

I had a shoot with Abby Jo on a training session at Saracen House last Saturday. Abby Jo is an amazing model. Very professional in all respects as well as being a lovely person with a great sense of humour. She is an absolute natural in front of the camera requiring little direction. As time was limited I am looking forward to arranging another shoot with her very soon. I know she has loads of references on here but she deserves every single one of them! Thanks again Abby Jo and look forward to working with you again very soon! x

 

Saracen House Studio said…

Awesome! Great fun, but a true professional model. A real understanding of shape, posing, and wants to make sure that each photographer gets the best images possible from the shoot.

Always welcome at Saracen House, and thoroughly recommended to work with. You won’t regret it!

 

Loud and Flashy said…

ARRRRRGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Totally forgot to put a reference on here for Abby Jo. But then that’s her fault. It’s the effect she has on you! She’s bonkers. In a good way. But bonkers!

Anyway, the important stuff. Punctual. Professional. Brilliant.

And bonkers.

Welcome back at the studio any time she likes (hint!)

Smile

 

A J Matthews said…

Abby Jo is amazing – it’s as simple as that!!!

From the moment she walks into the studio, you know that you in for a great shoot. From the moment she steps in front of the lens, she the consummate professional when it comes to modelling. During downtime between shoots, she is an absolute pleasure to be around.

I hope I get the opportunity to work with her again and produce some more great images.

Adam Lloyd said…

Had a shoot with Abby Jo yesterday and had such a laugh. I barely had to say what I was looking for and instantly she would produce it, what a fantastic look and her body shapes and expressions were so elegant and versatile. At the same time the shoot was good fun and it just added to helping me get the images I was wanting.

I strongly recommend Abby Jo as you not only will get great images but have fun while doing it.

 

Antz said…

I visited Hallam Mill while Abby Jo was there shooting and had a short shoot with her, during our hour we had a couple of changes and some fun banter and I got some great images, very professional and easy going with great poise even when I threw another model in the mix Wink

Abby Jo come highly recommended to work with, just a shame it was a such a short one and would love to work with her again.

Anthony

 

GaryMac Photography said…

Meet Abby Jo at Photo Shoot in The Hallam Mill Studio

Abby Jo was fantastic, working with me on a few seriously off the wall ideas on the day, contributing her own ideas as well

Abby Jo was great fun to be with, took what direction was needed well, posed effortlessly and worked really hard at giving as much as possible during the limited time shoot

The allocated time flew by so hope to have the opportunity to work with Abby Jo again, when she is in the area to do some more studio work

Recommended : Highly

 

abwphotos said…

Just an hours test shoot really at Hallam Mill Studio arranged by Jim Gormley.

Then a few shots of Abby Jo and Artemis together. (Interesting!!)

Abby Jo is an adventurous ‘Jordie’ with a great sense of humour, up for the outrageous!

Highly Recommended.

 

Williamwj said…

Apart from supporting a dodgy team ( not that the North East have much choice these days but I am rather found of Hartlepool) Abby Jo was a great fun and made me laugh for most of our shoot ( just watch the choice of food before indulging in any work with another model) , but on a serious note great fun at Hallam Mill today and do hope she comes back this way soon

 

NDB Photography said…

Being totally new to photographing models I was slightly nervous turning up to Hallam Mill to do a photoshoot with Abby Jo. All I can say is she was amazing! She put me at ease and the photoshoot flowed superbly. Abby Jo is a very creative and charismatic model and I would highly recommended for newbies and seasoned vets! Sensational!!

 

n2cus said…

Great model, great host, can’t drink for a big clock.

Thoroughly enjoyed the shoot with Abby Jo.. no fuss, no fluff.. just a good solid work ethic and a creative mind. Worth the million mile hike? yup Do it again? Definitely.

Shot Abby Jo at her gorgeous home on an Andrew Appleton Workshop. I’d never of contacted her due to vast experience and top Togs she’s worked with previously.

However shooting with Abby Jo was great fun filled with mischief being relaxed and totally professional.

She’s one mad posing machine pulling off one dynamic pose after another with ease. As with with everything good there’s a downside working with Abby Jo. You’ll have a ton of superb images to sift through.

What can one say about Abby Jo that has not already been said. In short she is wickedly awesome, ever so mental and such a smashing lady. Add in as a bonus that she is a superb model, has wardrobes over flowing (literally) with great outfits and a day made in photographic heaven is on the cards.

I spend a fantastic day with Abby Jo, half on location and half at her house. The weather was splendid on location and her house is a pure delight to work in.

Abby Jo joins an elite band of “most highly recommended” by me, work with her and you will get some amazing images and I promise – not stop laughing all day.

I had a very fun shoot with Abby Jo a couple of months ago – what can I say? She’s funny, happy, crazy (in a good way) and on top of all that an absolute blast to shoot! Highly recommended!

I travelled up to Abby Jo’s wonderful house last week to do some test shots prior to some workshops we will be running later in the year. Having already met Abby Jo and seen the quality of her work I knew I was going to be in for a great day and I wasn’t disappointed.

With a great figure, lot’s of strong expressions, endless poses we effortlessly covered just about every genre from lifestyle to lingerie in just a few hours.

Abby Jo really is one of the nicest people I have met in this industry and I can’t wait to get back up to Durham in July for our workshops and then we’ll follow that up with something a bit special in August.

Very highly recommended.

Thanks Abby Jo.

Abby Jo and I worked together again and she really blew me away, her modelling is absolutely top notch, as you can clearly see in her amazing and varied portfolio, her passion for what she does is equally impressive and her down to earth bright and happy personality form the complete package. I can’t recommend Abby Jo enough to any photographer who wants to work with real talent, I had some crazy concepts which could easily have been disastrous but Abby Jo understood them without hesitation and made them her own . Thanks again Abby Jo for a fantastic day of creating awesome stuff, and some really mental stuff too Smile

BOOK Abby Jo NOW !! or you may just live to regret it Wink

Abby Jo came to the studio on her travels, what a fantastic, cool, easy going model! We had a great time and got some really really amazing headshots. The shoot was only brief but i am looking forward to getting together again soon!!!

I don’t think we got one bad shot in all we took its a hard job choosing them to edit! Wink

This was my second shoot with Abby Jo, and as with the previous shoot, it was an all round great day.

Excellent communication, modelling skills, enthusiasm, and most importantly, a warm friendly welcome. I probably talked too much, but she’s so engaging the photography almost became secondary, although we tried a few different things, even her sitting and posing on the roof beams of her amazing old house! Brave girl !

Such a great girl; professional and 100% recommended. Thanks Abby Jo xx

 

LowSociety said…

Without a doubt, Abby Jo is one of the most enthusiastic models I have met. Superb communication, fantastic personality, and a pleasure to be in the company of. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with her, and would jump at the chance to work with her again. Despite having to put up with some strange requests for items to be worn during our shoot, she got on with the job, and gave it her all. Thank you Abby Jo for being an outstanding model, and providing me not only with great images, but great memories from a thoroughly enjoyable and fun day.

 

Adam Robertson Photography said…

Had a great shoot with Abby Jo, her pre shoot comms were ace, and she was punctual and reliable. Full of ideas and with a suitcase ready to burst, we worked our way through creating a variety of images from portraits, to lingerie and nude stories. Recommended. (She’s also the bubbliest/happiest person I think I’ve ever shot!)

 

Bill @ ampho said…

Just completed a shoot with Abby Jo whom I can’t recommend enough. Abby Jo effortlessly and readily moves from pose to pose using her experience to produce spectacular results. A thread of an idea is presented to her and away she goes moving and developing your thought telepathically into a number of images you were hoping to achieve. If you’re like me you’re aiming to improve in studio photography, lighting and directing models into gorgeous images don’t buy magazines hire Abby Jo, the shoot will improve your people and studio photography tenfold.

Thanks Abby Jo let’s do it again soon.

I have worked with Abby Jo a couple of times now, with more to come very soon.

She is bubbly, funny, versatile, reliable, genuine, professional, quirky, open-minded and soooo full of beans that you cannot fail to be impressed by her.

I love her to bits and would not hesitate to recommend her, but don’t just take my word for it – book her and see for yourself.

 

Stu Henderson said…

Abby Jo is an absolute pleasure to work with. Would not have to think twice about working with her again, she is such a fun and professional person with an incredible ability for posing. She makes shooting with her a very simple and enjoyable time. We made some cracking images together and I am looking forward to the next time…

 

Steven McIvor said…

Abby Jo is a versatile & beautiful model who puts a lot of thought and energy into every shoot, she is a relaxed confident creative professional, and has a unique quirky sense of humour which adds genuine warmth to her character, she knows exactly what to do and knows exactly how to do it and works tirelessly to get the best shots possible throughout the entire time shooting. Brilliant communications before during and after and I can’t recommend Abby Jo enough! I would welcome the opportunity to work with her again and hope to do so soon.

It’s difficult to add any superlatives that haven’t already been said about Abby Jo. I shot with her today at her beautiful home and she truly is a great model; relaxed, friendly, patient, attractive and professional.

She made me feel welcome from the minute I arrived, and I left with a card full of fabulous images. Willing to try any pose in any position (beams next time Abby Jo LOL!), I will definitely be shooting with her again, because she is just someone you want to spend time with. Thank you Abby Jo xxx

Shot Abby Jo now a few times and every time has been very productive. Adds to every shoot with her own creativity which makes for excellent results. No doubt we will be shooting again in the near future.

Recently had my first shoot with Abby Jo, and wow!

Abby Jo is truly a pleasure to work with. She works brilliantly without any direction if needed or follows directions given to her with ease.

With her ability to pull off so many different looks and styles and coupled with her amazing figure she is a star in the making!

A truly wonderful model to work with. Excellent attitude and great posing, even out in the cold for several hours.

Really looking forward to working with Abby Jo again – cannot recommend enough Smile

Had my first shoot with Abby Jo at her home.Great setting for shooting.

Abby Jo herself was well prepared and has a good selection of clothing for all situations.A good supply of drinks and food kept me going during the shoot and the subsequent images produced made me very happy.

A model that is able to work to any project I have no hesitation in giving her a top recommendation.

 

Andrew Terry Photography said…

Abby Jo was a great laugh, although she brought along 2 left shoes, the whole shoot was great. we had planned a list of shots we wanted to do, and after 20mins we had already fulfilled those and went about various other ideas which worked well.

very easy to get along with, was punctual and communication was fab. Keep up the good word Abby Jo.
