The most memorable thing I’ve done so far was probably my first GQ shoot, and I was involved in a piece with Juergen Teller.

“I’m in full time modelling. I live over in Sweden now, and I’m back down for Fashion Week.

It wasn’t something I ever thought of doing – but once when I was out with my mum and someone came over and asked me if I’d ever considered modelling. I was 6ft 2 at the age of 15, so there was a lot of potential opportunities for me. So I kind of just fell into it. I’m 17 now, and the last two years have been incredible – my life changed like you can’t imagine. I had to leave school, because there was no way I could do both, with travelling to different countries on shoots, I was busy every day of the week. The most memorable thing I’ve done so far was probably my first GQ shoot, and I was involved in a piece with Juergen Teller. There were 4 of us, and we were flown over to Greenland where we had to pose without any clothes on, outside in the snow. Yeh, that was crazy, and of course, because it’s Jurgen Teller, you do it and know it’s also going to be an important art work that will be published.

I’ll probably do this until 24/25 I think, but I’m enjoying it, and will figure out later what I’ll do next. I’m quite chill with it. It’s what I advise other people too – stay chill and go for what you want, things will work themselves out along the way.”

“The world is changing….

… you only need to look at the skyline and see how quickly its changed, because day by day, you see less of the sky and more of new buildings.

I was born in Hull but I’ve been living in London for a long time now and I can honestly say that I have been all the way up in the skies and down in the ground too. I’ve seen it all change but always tried to make sure I’ve stayed the same  – they way I behave, the way I treat people and think about the things I do. I really enjoy what I do now; it doesn’t give me a lot of money, but I get to see and talk to all types of people all day long; and sometimes I will end up in a long conversation with very friendly people. Some who you wouldn’t expect to be so nice. This is what London offers, and if you are willing to speak to people, then there is so much you can learn”.
