How did you get into it?
I had been scouted quite a lot when I was younger, probably for being 5ft9 by the time I was 12 but I was scouted when I was 17 and finally thought I would give it a go and so I started shooting and fell in love with it.
Did you always want to be a model?
I wouldn’t say I always wanted to be a model, I used to watch Americas next top model and things like that when I was younger but it didn’t come into my mind as a career or as a passion until I started doing it
What do you love about the industry?
I love meeting creatives and being introduced to so many amazing creative industries and individuals that I probably wouldn’t have been able to if I hadn’t started modelling.
Do you think your perception of modelling has changed since you’ve started doing it?
It has changed in the sense that before I started I had this image that it would be very easy and everything would come to you on a plate and you wouldn’t need to work for anything. I’ve learnt while doing it that its hard work and it does require dedication but if you love it things works out.
Whats been your favourite shoot to date?
I’d say I pretty much enjoy every shoot I do. On a personal level I did a shoot a while back for a music video for an artist called Mike Hawkins which was really fun, as I’d never really worked with a film crew before, so that was really exciting and also I met my boyfriend on that shoot and we got to drive around in a vintage Porsche which was really cool. On a professional level I’d say that when I did a shoot a while ago, my first shoot for Wonderland, that was in Manchester and that was really fun because it was a bit of travelling and the team were amazing and it was just a really fun day.
When you’re not working how do you like to unwind?
To be honest, I really like watching sports. I love to work out, walk my dog. Things like that. I do a lot of boxing, watch a lot of boxing and swimming. Something about watching other people work relaxes you in a really strange way.
