Today consisted of travel, travel travel! and i feel completely dead now! I woke up at crack of dawn which in my times is 6! TO early for me to be honest! and i only woke so early because the sun was blazing through my un-shut curtains. Got to Manchester train station for about 7:55 and caught the train to the CAPITAL! my home town ( I wish). Just as i got seats that was available loads & Loads i mean like hundreds of school kids crammed my carriage & im not an early person so i changed my seats to a more quieter one. As i got settled i realized i had no leg room atall so i thought i have a spare chair so why not put my legs up! Next minuet a old granny decides to sit next to me, and use MY seat to sit on out of all the other 100! i was so annoyed.
So i arrived in the big bad city and just wanted to explore! but couldn't really seen as i had a shoot at 11:30! So as soon as i got of the train i made my way to swiss cottage. and as you may know im not exactly the brains of my family and i struggle with direction, so i was asking everyone heedlessly where to go !!
Finally i arrived at swiss cottage but the only problem was is that i didn't know where to go from there so i downloaded google maps quick time! and what a frigging disaster that was! Stupid thing! i was walking around in a circle for HOURS! well i lie.. about 24mins!
Anyway i finally found my way, and went to set, and there were about 3 other female models! all uniquely beautiful and quickly got my hair and Make-up done, but put it this way, my hair wasn't what iv ever had before, They straightened the top and then last min put some extensions on. Hmm i was scared to look in the mirror but im sure the shots come out great!
Shooting with the photographer was slightly intimidating as she was FANTASTIC, shes worked with Kate moss! and i just wanted to impress! But she was dead lovely and we got loads of good shots!
Im sure ill have much to bitch about from my castings tomorrow haha! so ill do another blog!! Have a nice night guys :)

The fashion industry is a right B%*$h, and you come across photographers that are so rude and annoying, But recently i shot with a photographer named 'Marianne Paraskeva ' where do i start with her.... She was probably the best EVER person iv shot with ! the shoot was so enjoyable! and it was just AMAZING. As im a bolton boy i travelled down to lodon to shoot with this talent as i knew that she'd make my portfolio go BOOM ! and boy was i right! We started shooting about 1ish and didnt stop till about 10! we just got carried away! the MUA/Stylist was amazing too! I loved them both !! they was so creative ! it didnt feel like a shoot it just felt like chilling with friends!! It got wild! full on powder all over my face &body and trust me when i got home i still needed to scrub!! but the best shots come out when you get wild i guess! Can't wait for you guys to see them! just in post production at the moment!! but for time being Iv attached a few of the fashion images we did! but there is more to come!! We managed to get 4shoots into one DAY! so keep an eye out and check Marianne out on fb http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mariskeva/102012056558780
For the past four years alot has been going on in my life, 3 people close to were diagnosed with cancer withing the space of 2weeks, Which shook my world, but at the same time made me realize that im lucky and everything i do now i need to make them proud. Lucky one of these people where given the all clear after a few months/years. But unfortunately for the other 2 the fight was still on, One a girl i met on holiday who i adored ! she was amazing in every single way and was made to succeed in life, but unfortunately the fight was to much and a few year ago she passed which broke my heart. Which only gave my little cousin hope to fight and win the battle that many people lose. battle that many people lose.
But this week he passed away, but with months of preparing it still tore my heart apart, and nothing felt like light would shine through, but after a few days of trying to come to terms with what happened i realized that the fight was over, i should be happy, that my YOUNGER cousin was not in anymore pain, it made me think i need to stop being so selfish and think about HIM! and that he is an angel now and that he's probably looking down laughing thinking why we being so crazy! But with all this happend iv come to the conclusion that there is going to be change in my life and that im going to chase my dream, not just for myself but for my cousin, my friend, and all the other people dying in the world who never had the chance to do what they wanted.
