I hope you all had an amazing Christmas with lots of eating, drinking and socialising with family and friends?
During this blog I wanted to take a moment to talk about how I got into modelling. I feel this Is a good topic to talk about because I had no intention of getting into modelling and especially because I thought my disability would restrict me from doing so. Its all about positive thinking and being determined, if you want it, go for it.
So in 2014 I was going to apply Men’s Health front cover competition, which they used to hold yearly. I was doing the competition for myself and to show having a disability you can still achieve anything but I found out they where stopping the competition, I was gutted 😢. So I needed to rethink what I could do, so I decided on training and dieting as hard as possible for a photoshoot (which I paid for). So I did some research on photographer’s and decided on the very talented Alex Wightman Photography

Well what can I say since the photoshoot its been amazing, I’m involved with well known companies within the fitness industry. Only recently I had a photoshoot with skinny chimp who are the gym clothing company I represent.

Best of all in September this year I had a location photoshoot in Marcella, with the amazing Jules Godfrey Photography
To this day now I still don’t class myself as a model but I’ve given some amazing modelling opportunities, this year especially and I hope it will go from strength to strength. Anyone who reads this and wants to get into modelling my advice would be to just go for it and don’t be told any different.
I would like to finish with the quote ” I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say ” Because of you I didn’t give up ”
I hope you enjoy this blog and feel free to leave a comment ☺
