Interview with Liddie Holt
When and how long did you model for?
My modelling career began in 1982 when I was 18 & I am still taking assignments today so I reckon around 40 years.
What were the greatest elements of the job?
The greatest elements of the job are the places I have visited, the people I have met & the opportunities which have presented themselves.
When did you get into photography?
To be submerged in fashion & exposed to some of the worlds most beautiful locations, photography was a way of savouring such experiences. I didn’t want to let go of any of it. I kept a photographic diary of everywhere I went & the people I was drawn to, this led to a natural evolution of a passion which is still with me. I simply love capturing all of which my eyes feast…! I’m greedy so I doubt I will ever stop…!
How would you describe your style of images?
My imagery is real and textured. It raw as, it is rich.
It is an expression of how I see everything, raw and true.

It’s a joy to observe with a camera.
What have been your greatest life lessons as you have matured?
I am concerned for what lays ahead, so I will continue to indulge & catalogue what is in front of me, for as far as I can see it is beautiful…
