Not blogged in a while - too much to do and too tired to sit and get my brain in gear to write! Anyway as we are running a deal with our friends at Groupon - I thought it would be a good time to finally get a quick blog in!
Those of you with children now know that peace is over for the next 6 weeks unless you have successfully sent them off to a boot camp?! My child's diary for the next 6 weeks is nothing short of a PA's genius handiwork.. the time and planning gone into it is worth a pay rise alone! So if you are stuck at home with your little darlings why not pop along to www.gapstudioswest.co.uk and get their little cherub faces snapped? You really will get the most beautiful images and if you are interested in your child getting into modelling - the pictures will make a great portfolio! Check out the deal here http://www.groupon.co.uk/deals/london/gap-photography/24563607
For the adults that need photos - we will be running another commercial deal in the next few days so I will post this information later on in the week...
www.gappresents.com my fit model agency is very busy at the moment and we are holding a casting day on 30 July 2013 for any unrepresented interested fit models or anyone who thinks they can be a fit model. I say unrepresented because it stops clashing with other agencies plus clients are asking for new blood!!!!
I really can't believe that the summer holidays are upon us (please don't anyone mention it will soon be Chr........S!) but come September you know that's what people will be talking about!
The last few weeks for me have been a bit of a haze with my usual juggling of studio, fit agency, a poorly child (happy to report all better now) and oh my own acting career! - Have had some lovely jobs in the past few weeks and have worked for some really nice people - latest recommendation is posted on my 'About Kimberley' page!
Anyway enjoy the sun, enjoy the holidays if you are going or taking any and please don't moan about the sun/heat - it won't be around forever :) X
The boss himself - with Union J!
Wow time is flying by this year - third week of May already! At least I think it's May and not November?! Though the sun does seem to be finally making an appearance today!
Our studio www.gapstudioswest.co.uk has been busy with clients such as Union J in da house! See picture above! and yesterday googlebox were on a shoot!
Our regular photoshoots are still happening and www.gapphotography.com is very busy.
Coming soon we will be launching our look book service for designers and retailers - we have experience in this field but a new website is on it's way! some clients include:
I did a bit of modelling for Bid Plus TV last week and am there again this evening - on air Sally Jacks & Mondi 8-10pm. Hopefully I will manage to stay awake - poor old girl!
Here's a screen shot from last weeks footage!
I have a few other bits & pieces in the pipeline and as ever awaiting on footage & clips from jobs to upload and update my showreel with!
www.gappresents.com my fit model agency is also keeping me busy with lots of models on castings and working for top designers :-)
Well it's been a while again since I've blogged - I have realized it's kind of hard to draw the line between wanting to share things and telling the world your life! Acting/Model work has picked up a bit -
I shot a photo story for The Sun with my 5 year old - He's very happy saving up the ££££ for his piggy bank and then the other week shot a commercial for a Mirror company - (not with 5 year old!)- some other possible pencils on the horizon but it's a constant juggling act with the studio and agency as well! It's been a busy few weeks for www.gapphotography.com and will be even busier fingers crossed as we are running an amazing deal with Groupon _ http://www.groupon.co.uk/deals/west-london/Gap-Photography/20484798 Everyone leaves the studio very happy - trust me you will get fabulous pictures :)
www.gappresents.com my fit model agency are still looking for size 12 fitting models - please apply via the website and we are holding a casting day this Friday 26 April 2013! HURRY!

I am a little bleary eyed as I didn't get home till quite late last night. I was shooting a viral/promo campaign with the lovely guys at www.nomagnolia.tv at the 02 last night. The place was heaving as The Script were on last night - but as we were promoting the VIP area it was Bolly (well some!) all the way ( hard work but someones got to do it!). It will be shown on the big screen at the 02 centre (fame at last) and on their website - will post links/clips as soon as I have them.
Until next time - enjoy the snow again people!
Finally got a clip of some corporate presenting I did in December - click on http://www.kimberleypalmer.com/latest-news.html and you'll get to see it! It was a tutorial and I was directed in particular way as it was aimed at certain type of audience!
Still fairly quiet casting wise at the moment - which seems to be true for a lot of my actor friends at present - hardly any jobs coming through on the Spotlight link either! That said I may have a couple of short film castings on Friday and I do have some possible presenting work lined up for later in the month and in April and I'm pleased to say the offers came directly via this website!!!! I am well aware my show reel needs updating mainly to separate the acting stuff from the presenting - it's just all takes so much time! Any recommendations for which show reel companies to use would be appreciated!
My fitting model agency www.gappresents.com is on the first page of google - in the keyword searches - Just call me a SEO genius! Found a couple of size 12 models at my latest casting which is good as still trying to find size 12 models is like a needle in a haystack!
www.gapphotography.com and www.gapstudioswest.co.uk are very busy - people loving their piccies and keeping the team on their toes :)
Outside of work am sick of this weather and seriously need to either move or get work in The Canary Islands in the Winter..so all job offers weclome!
Hurrah!! Finally - only taken since October for Amazon to sort this but finally we are live on Amazon and available to download! Not the greatest picture with my iphone but the link has all the details!
Have also got some of the pics from a shoot I did that I quite like - now to get the car as well.......?!!!!
It's half term for me next week so I get to have lot of fun with my little boy but www.gapstudioswest.co.uk is busy with studio hire and www.gapphotography.com with shoots. Oh and the band from last week using the studio for a shoot were
http://www.youtube.com/user/thesummerset and sounded great -(after the shoot they did a bit of warming up for their gig at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire) - but me - okay before you all shout 'Cougar' - I like Lawson :).... and on that note have a great weekend!
I have spent the last day re:vamping my fitting model agency website - www.gappresents.com it was easier for me to do it myself as I can update it whenever I want! The downside is that it's not all singing and dancing but I think it's functional and serves its purpose! Feel free to let me know any constructive comments. Next stop is submitting it to search engines etc. I have a casting day coming up on 22 February so if anyone knows anyone who wants to be a fit model or thinks they measure up then please tell them to get in touch via the website.
www.gapstudioswest.co.uk is busy today with a band using the studio (no it's not The Wanted!) though they have used the studio in the past, and the weekend for www.gapphotography.com is looking busy with photoshoots.
No castings this week at present - oh the life of an actor eh? but as we've seen from this weeks news of a certain someone going bankrupt - (thank god I am not in that position) - I would say you can see how in favour your are one minute and not the next but if you have expensive tastes I guess your demise can be even quicker - eek!
www.gapphotography.com is coming to a shopping centre near you! Ok slight exaggeration - but we are in Kings Mall Hammersmith, London all this week and the following week in Whitelys, Bayswater, London. The guys on the stand have a fabulous offer reagarding photoshoots/makeovers so if you are in the area, pop down and see what we can offer you. Loads of pictures of previous and current clients to look at as well to inspire you! Here's a pic of our banner from the stand so you know what to look out for!
Here's a screenshot of some presenting I did for a Wall rendering company - I get all the glam jobs me! but hey work is work! Am still waiting for links and pics for other stuff - it's a bit like pulling teeth trying to get hold of stuff but I know I know! Clients are very busy and the last thing they need is actors hounding them for copies of work!
It's been a while since I've been able to blog, unfortunately being struck down with Pharyngitis hasn't helped, along with other factors and blogging feels the last thing you feel like doing!
However I was very lucky to model for http://www.ossieclarklondon.co.uk/ for a fashion presentation (thanks to my lovely friend Andrea) a couple of weeks ago. Nic Georgiou has designed some beautiful dresses that are available at Debenhams and I was so lucky to be able to model them - made a massive change from my school run attire of Ugg boots and Jeans! Due to illness I have not been able to attend any other castings which is a shame but such is life. Fingers crossed I will be back to normal soon.
www.gapphotography.com is busy with a deal running on wowcher http://www.wowcher.co.uk/deals/london/deal-31777-detail/10-instead-150-makeover-photoshoot-person-makeup/deal.html - last day today so make sure you grab a bargain while you can!
Hope you all had a great week - so pleased it's Saturday today though the Studio is busy with shoots all afternoon. Remember last chance for the Groupon deal - time is ticking! http://www.groupon.co.uk/deals/west-london/Gap-Photography/15655377
www.gapphotography.com are also at a fashion event this evening so no rest for the wicked!
I have had a busy week as mentioned in a previous post and managed to squeeze in a casting for a book cover - fingers crossed as it would be right up my street as it's set in the 18th century - love a bit of period drama!
Here is a still from one of the shoots I was on this week!
Next week the studio www.gapstudioswest.co.uk is busy with studio hire - plus I am modelling for a well known womenswear brand on Tuesday - will sneak a pic if I can!
Of course all of this might not happen if the white cold stuff falls as the UK does tend to come to a halt as soon as someone so much as mentions the word SNOW!
End of year tax returns also looming so that will be also be on next weeks fun list - anyone got Starbuck's accountants no?
Have a great weekend X
is Moi! And am here to promote and tell you about all the good things our studio offers. So check back for giveaways and deals etc! Might also add into the mix casting experiences and products that I cannot live with out! See you soon X
