Hi there i'm laura,
cheers for popping by. How are you?
before we start....
NEVER ANY NUDE TF FOR ANYONE-NO GLAMOUR OR EROTIC FULL STOP-DON'T EVEN ASK
IGNORE LOCATION: WILL ALWAYS TRAVEL!!!! LEEDS IS MY HOMETOWN BUT WILL-AND USUALLY DO- WORK ELSEWHERE
Agency represented and a very, very experienced model. Brains and beauty- I have a media and english degree, i'm a trained actress, published writer (poems, reviews,articles, reportage and short stories) and as a hangover from days at the University of Leeds, i am a cocktail trained bar tender, promoter, presenter and events hostess.
I class myself firstly as an ESOL teacher (my true passion, I must admit, in life is teaching ESOL to Romanian Orphans and I hope one day to live there full stop with my own charity)
Everything is to fund my dreams in regards to the latter but I am immensely passionate in all arenas of my life and hate to feel that i am in anyway linear. You cannot live the same way for around 80 years and declare that you have had a life.
I don't take myself too seriously- I like shoots to end with a smile, a hug and a friendly g&t.
I'm catwalk trained and have walked for many high profile shows, and will always walk or pose for a charities.
I have lots more photos you can see on request for casting purposes, same goes for refs and credits.
Make up artists especially tend to like my work especially (have very good clear skin and long natural hair in very good condition) and have done a beauty book recently (be published around xmas!)
I am here because I want some amazing strong images for my port-To get something maybe a little less commercial and a little more high fashion. i love beauty shots and it's something i do very well. Cindy C, Gia Carangi and Janice Dickinson are my fave models and i feel fashion was at its strongest 20-30 years ago. I'm a big fan of Helmut Newton, Terry Donovan and Chris Von Wagenheim. Of the modern masters, Terry Richardson. I'm living for the day supermodels who are super make a come back!
I work hard for my dreams and am passionate and professional whatever the job. I always wanted to be a fashion designer and love fashion, artistic people and the performance arts.
My rate with my agencies is typically £50 p/h for modelling and £100 per day tv/film.
I am willing to do TFCD for good projects-any contributions toward travel expenses are welcome, but if i really believe in something, i will gladly waive all charges/rates/expenses as I love to shoot and like to constantly update my port. I'm becoming far more selective about this, however. Not to nitpick...but TFCD means you get good pics for your time! a few times i haven't recieved the pics but most people honour their side fine and I like to see the good side of people but i'm just stating facts.
Ok...whatever.I'm just me and I like me even when no-one else does
