A GROUP of local ladies renowned for their fundraising efforts are set to hear from a Yorkshire Dales photographer at their meeting this week about the boom in sensual photography.

The Ribble Valley and White Rose Ladies fundraising luncheon tomorrow (28th February) will be a chance to hear from local photographer Dave Oldridge and his partner Paula Vickers, about the boom in sensual photography work that has prompted them to form their company, Revelations.

"At last, women are increasingly realising that you don't have to be super model thin or big breasted to look fantastic without clothes," explains Paula.

"Recent programmes like 'How to look good naked' have advocated that you don't have to spend ridiculous amounts of money or go through the pain and worry of having plastic surgery to look great. More and more women have stopped comparing themselves to the models seen every day on billboards and in magazines and are taking pride in their own bodies, shedding their inhibitions, and celebrating their curves.

"This positive attitude has lead to a huge upsurge in the demand for sensual or glamour style portraits. Previously the sole domain of models, actresses and pop icons these are now the 'in thing' to do and not just in the trend setting South East; women here in the north are also totally embracing the concept."

The charity luncheon will be held at The Rendezvous Hotel in Skipton, owned by one of the founding members of Ribble Valley and White Rose Ladies, Karen Weaving.

Open to non-members as well as members, the fundraising ladies meet regularly and their activities raise money specifically for research into childhood cancers.

The charity recently collected an award from Cancer Research UK for their outstanding fundraising achievement based on popular events of this nature.

Further information is available from Natasha Howe or Karen Weaving at The Rendezvous Hotel on 01756 700100.
