About Me

************** AGENCY REPRESENTED MODEL ********************

"I will NOT be outworked. Period... You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, you might be sexier than me, you might be all of those things. You got it on me in nine categories. But if we get on the treadmill together, there's two things: Either you're getting off first, or I'm gonna die. It's really that simple."

Helloooooooooo!!! and thankyou for checking out my page!

Originally a native Brummie-girl, I now live in Manchester (and am an official Northerner!), but am willing to travel across the UK and worldwide.

I am half Indian and half English but my looks are quite versatile and I have been used as a Mediterranean, South American, and Asian model. I am quite chameleon-like in real life too, and hope never to be categorised or tied down to one style. I trained at stage school as an actress and dancer, and these are my main focus as well as modelling. 

The fashion industry, I feel, should be treated like any other business, and I am constantly researching trends and fresh ideas in order to improve my work. I come to every shoot armed with ideas for styling, lighting, locations and poses. (Secretly I fancy myself as a bit of an artistic director!)

I am looking to do everything I can in the industry, not just "expand my folio" but break boundaries, create fresh ideas and be controversial!

My previous work includes: various music videos, 2x short films ("Bloody Love: An Anniversary" and "One Minutes"), catwalk shows for Wella Live and a number of Asian bridalwear designers, and photoshoots for Lipsy, Toni & Guy, Irwin Mitchell Solicitors, and various local boutiques. My most recent assignments have been an international Toshiba campaign, a cover of a CD sleeve, and commercials for DFS, Iceland and Central Government!

"Natalie is great fun to work with. I had her leaping and twirling around like a Dervish and she gave it everything she had! She's punctual, easy to communicate with and - with her dark, exotic looks - she's a photographer's delight." - Vincent Abbey

**********************************************************
"Natalie is a delight to work with, very down to earth and funny girl. In front of the camera, she's an absolute gem, she is patient and takes direction well, not to mention inputting her own vision into a shoot. Highly recommend her, and given the time, I'll definately work with her again in the near future." - Ed Lui

**********************************************************
"I have had several experiences working with Miss Balmain, and everytime has been an absolute pleasure. Punctual and pleasant, she has a lot to bring to the table. Natalie is keen to work with a Photographer to grasp a common goal, willing to push her own boundaries again and again. She settles in to a shoot almost immediately, so she is great to work with from start to finish." - Sam Esty Rayner
