Meanwhile in 2002 Alice Gilding joined Parafotos as our secretary before becoming a committed naturist the following year.
Since then Alice, with her warm
personality and captivating smile,
has become an enthusiastic co-producer and has already
starred in seven of our 60 films we've produced about naturists and naturism since we started twenty years ago.
In 2004 we discovered two new sparkling ambassadors for naturism, Sam and Joceline.
Since then they have both appeared in fourteen of our films. They are both enthusiastic naturists and this has been exemplified by their appearance on eighteen covers of different naturist magazines.
At the end of 2006 we published our long awaited book to considerable acclaim with Joanna Lumley writing about it: "The wonderful book, Charlie's Angels ~ Naturally, is utterly charming - full of happiness and beauty; made me long for summertime!" It features twenty of Charlie's Angels who are also the most beautiful naturist ambassadors imaginable.
In 199I Alison starred in our third film Alison over the Moon, filmed in Lanzarote, and was able to step into Adele's shoes in 1992. Her natural beauty, love of naturism and her presentational skills ensured that she played an important part of our next eleven films and she became a key personality in the business. It was a sad time in 1995 when she reluctantly had to cut down her involvement to pursue a career in TV presenting - she remains a good friend and I owe her much.
We met Holly in 1993 and she’s appeared in fourteen of our films and excelling in our best underwater sequences because of her amazing fish-like swimming ability. Angie, a vivacious, dark skinned lady, whose family are from Fiji, also with five films with us to her credit, has become another trusted friend as has a lovely young Dutch lady.
I first met Wendy in 1994 and she had a huge influence on the business. She was already a naturist, is absolutely lovely and proved to be a natural presenter.
Apart from that she had originally trained as a fashion designer with the result that she has a wonderfully imaginative creative flair. The first of the dozen or so we worked on together was in Ibiza and was entitled Barely Balearic.
Marieke was an art student in her native Holland when we first met her. She's been a naturist since her early teens and her youthful, natural beauty is a vibrant advertisement for naturism.
It was therefore appropriate that Sam should feature on my 100th H&E cover - the December 2007 edition.
In 2011 I persuaded long standing friend, Suzanne Marshall, to start working with us. This lovely lady took the world of naturism by storm with her enchanting personality andstunning beauty. She’s appeared on the cover of H&E eight times, and our 150 page book, ‘Wild and Free’, is a fitting tribute to this sparkling ambassador for naturism.
We hope to be able to continue to produce quality films about this wonderful, fulfilling lifestyle and bring to you reports of the very best places where you can throw off your clothes ...
...and live! Charlie Simonds
