Interview: Model Chantelle Parker (UK)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Hi, i'm Chantelle and i'm from Weymouth in Dorset. I've been modelling for about a year and a half now. Throughout my time in the industry i've discovered a real passion for modelling & have been really fortunate to have been given some great opportunities so far; I really look forward to developing further.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
If you would've asked me that a while ago i'd have said all sorts; but I think an important aspect of self development is accepting yourself, flaws and all. No body is perfect, embrace your you-ness. I do believe in improving yourself, and i will always strive to do that in every single way.
How did you start modeling?
A very talented and beautiful friend of mine who is already in the industry invited me to her studio in London to shoot with her- i'm very greatful to this day for that.
What do you think of the work as a model?
For me it's just a real passion and getting the chance to meet so many talented and interresting people along the way is just one of the many possitives.
What is your beauty regimen?
I'm religious about a good skincare regime & my nails have to be perfect! I eat healthily on the whole and take care to exersise.
I'm loyal and trustworthy and like to think i always put others before myself.
What are your plans for the future?
To continue enjoying and growing within the industry.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
My favourite experiences to date include participating an unexpected mud run on a beach shoot, balancing on a ridiculously thin headboard to use the wall as a background and being almost knocked out with lighting equipment by the hairstylist! Never a dull moment with Glenn Wallace- we are always in stitches laughing!!
Advice for those wanting to start modelling?
My advice to anyone looking to start out in modelling would be; be proffessional and ambitious but also have fun and enjoy the experiences you're given.
What do you think of the magazine?
I feel really appreciative to appear in Modellenland Magazine. I love the magazine, it is bursting full of amazing models and photographers and i'm hournoured to be featured amongst them.
