I am an Ancient History Graduate,originally from Bedfordshire but now residing in Manchester, and I work for Genting Club Manchester.
I love taking pictures and having my picture taken, because I love creating art! I like doing things a little less ordinary, playing around with compostion/backround/styles etc, and generally having some imput! For me, modelling isn't necessarily about forging a career or making money, I actually enjoy the creative side of producing a beautiful set of images very much!
Assignments I have undertook are varied; Namely I have catwalk-modelled for student fashion shows and a charity fashion show, as well as undertook various hair modelling jobs, a bridal make-up shoot, fashion shoots indoors and out, artistic nudes indoors and out. I love working in studio's but I love going out on location or even searching for a great location as part of the shoot: it simply adds to the fun! I recently trekked through the Penines in search of a secluded spot to shoot in a stream, and the following week I shot up in the Lakes yet again involving water!
I have worked in promotions for 4 years; promoting events and venues in Manchester, Peterborough, Leeds, York and Liverpool. Types of job range from hosting events dressed as a playboy bunny, to attending the launch of several Revolution bars, dressed as a Russian Vodka Girl. I was also the hostess of a gentlemens club, a Honey-trap Hostess for Opus Club, and hosted several of my own events in Manchester venues.
I get really irritated when i read 'i don't do nudes' from models and photographers alike.. like nude models/photography is lower calibre - the naked female form is exquisite and i love nothing more than to see a beautiful art nude shot. You people are missing out - all top models end up naked at some point - you should be comfortable with your figure!!
I am happy to work some TF shoots if I feel that the photographer or make up artists will benefit and enhance my portfolio. However, unless i am very impressed with your work, travel expenses outside of Manchester would need to be covered!!
I have undertaken 40+ shoots and have been on the catwalk 4 times. Photographers I have worked with include [* indicates more than once]:
Andy [northwest on net-model] *
