Modeling

Modeling experience

Beginner, starting out


I really enjoy modelling - I have done a few shoots in the past. I like the weird and wonderful, and I'd love to do some "interesting and different" modelling, but I am up for most things to get some experience.

I have naturally brown hair which is quite versatile as it is naturally curly/frizzy but straightens and curls easily. I own extentions which blend easily with my hair, and can style my hair and makeup myself if needed. I enjoy having different types of makeup on, and suit natural makeup as well as different and interesting.

Music

Recorded at The Chart House Studios in Horndean, this is an A cappella rendition of Danny Boy.

I have grade 5 and 6 in singing.

I perform regularly at open mic nights in my area as well as at a few markets in the Portsmouth area. I own a PA system which I can bring with me to any event.

My style of singing is wide, I can sing 1940's inspired sets, general pop from 60's to modern day, tradition, jazz, blues, soul and musical pieces to name a few. I am eager to learn new styles too, and am happy to learn new songs specifically for an event. Artists in my repertoire include Eva Cassidy, Stevie Wonder, Evanescence, La Roux, Carrie Underwood, Robbie Williams and Sara Barellies.

I also sing at various events (some are charity events) each year, including the Waterlooville Music Festival, and a charity event I organise for Cystic Fibrosis Kids of Portsmouth.

I have taken part in the Portsmouth Music Festival and the Gosport Music Festival a number of times, and have won The Catherine Cup (Portsmouth) and the Austin T Stake Cup (Gosport).

I have performed at the Wedgewood Rooms as part of my Music BTEC, which I got a merit in.

Dancing

Dancing ability

Intermediate


Dance styles
  • Ballet
  • Contemporary
  • Jazz
  • Tap

I started tap and modern dance lessons at the age of three, and I have been doing ballet since I was 5 years old.

I have up to grade 5 in ballet, as well as grade 7.
In Tap I have grade 1 - 5 and medal tests bronze to 1st shield.
Modern dancing I have grades 1 - 4 and medal tests bronze to 2nd award.

I have danced on many famous stages with my dance school, including Her Majesty's Theatre, Sadlers Wells and The Royal Albert Hall.

I performed on pointe for a song and dance duet in a talent show a few years ago which we won, and I have recently performed on pointe for a short cross-platform project, as well as for a ballet photoshoot with Elie Dervonte.

Choreography: I choreographed the dances for my medal tests in modern and tap, all of which achieved honours and above. I also created a ballet duet for a talent show, which we won. I dance every week on my own where I make up dances for possible future use. I would really love the chance to choreograph a dance piece for a big number of people.

Film & Stage Crew

Photography is something I enjoy, and have recently started getting into more. I have a Digital SLR canon camera. I enjoy shooting most things - landscapes, nature, people, buildings etc. I also enjoy editing photos. Please see my deviantART for some examples of my work.
