One of my first modelling jobs was for the Daily Sport. I then took a long break from modelling as I went off to uni and worked in broadcasting for a couple of years.
I started modelling again as a hobby and then went pro, shooting lingerie, glamour and fetish across Europe for many magazines, brands and web sites. I’ve also acted in various movies such as Zombie Driftwood, Inner Voice and Rotten Cotton which is in production.
I’ve always been an avid writer too and this has really taken off this year. I write for a column for The Daily Sport, Mens Stuff Magazine, Voyeur Magazine and I also have a fictional book ‘Sordid Secrets’ being released this September.
I run various websites including my blog UK-Fetish where I write articles about fetish and I’m also a marketing consultant and blogger for The UK Glamour Awards which is a great deal of fun.
1.When did you first realise you wanted to be a model?
I wouldn’t say it was a life long dream. My biggest desire was to become a writer, but as a little girl I would admire pin ups of Marilyn Monroe and modelling seemed like a fun and glamorous world that I wanted to dip my toe into. Of course, it is not always glamorous but it is very rewarding and enjoyable.
2.At what age did you first start modelling?
I was 19 and had just got back from Cyprus where I was working as a holiday rep. I did a shoot with the Daily Sport and everyone I knew was completely shocked as it was a topless shoot! Sometime later I shot for QVC the shopping channel in a swimsuit, Kiss Clubland, a local fashion magazine then flew out to Portugal to shoot some beach shots for a magazine.
3.What was your first big break and how did it arise?
It’s hard to say really. I wouldn’t say that there was one particular big break that stands out. When you do a shoot and get good results, it’s like a drug and you want more. I worked hard promoting myself on modelling forums and networking and initially a lot of my jobs were with amateurs, but then I started to get more professional jobs, so it was a gradual journey for me. I suppose my first appearance on QVC The Shopping Channel was quite groundbreaking as it gave me a real confidence boost.
4.What would you say is your biggest achievement so far?
Modelling wise – possibly working with brands like Mayfair or flying to Spain, France and Portugal. Also getting casted for films like Rotten Cotton. The film carries an anti-bullying message which is something I can relate to a lot, so it was a real honour to be casted for this.
The ultimate sense of achievement I have felt though, was when my final draft of Sordid Secrets was approved for publication. I jumped up and down like an excited child and was grinning like an idiot for the rest of the day!
5.How do you like to stay fit?
I love swimming, roller skating and horse riding but don’t usually have time for these activities, so it’s usually lots of yoga and visiting the gym to sweat it out on the cross trainer and bike!
When no ones in, I crank the stereo up and dance around like a mad thing!
6.What’s your favourite food?
I absolutely love Thai and fresh seafood. You can’t beat juicy big King Prawns and a plate of scallops with a zesty lime marinade and a crisp side salad dressed with balsamic vinegar. Dessert wise – an ice cold Mojito with plenty of chopped fresh mint!
7.Any advice for people wanting to start modelling?
Join lots of modelling sites and get yourself professional images shot. Make your presence known on social media and never get into online arguments.
Network your butt off and contact companies that are looking for models. You can also contact other models to see if you can help promote one another.
Don’t let success go to your head. Just because you are this years big name doesn’t mean you will be next years. Fame is fleeting and won’t always last. Treat the people around you well and be someone who people will turn to for advice. There’s a saying “Be careful how you speak to on the way up, as you may very well meet them on the way back down” This is so true and I have seen many girls fall into a down ward spiral when people stopped booking them because of their attitudes.
Also, realise your natural beauty. There is a trend at the minute to become a clone and have big butts, big implants and an excess of fillers. Whilst I’m not knocking the girls who have this done, it’s better to be yourself than a copy of someone else. Let your natural beauty shine.
8.What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?
I was doing a fetish shoot with another model recently and our slave turned up with the biggest bag of stinging nettles you could imagine. I was quite puzzled at first until he explained that we could stuff his pants full of nettles. We donned the latex gloves and in less than a shake of a lambs tail, he was rolling around the floor with stinging nettles hanging out of his pants. It was pretty bizarre but me and the other girl were in fits of giggles!
9.What’s song best describes you?
Destiny’s Child Independent woman – it’s all about a woman that is successful in her own right, pays her own way and doesn’t rely on any man.
10.What would you be if you weren’t a model?
A best selling novelist 😉
11.Tell me something about you not many people know?
The very first proper book I read as a kid was The Faraway tree by Enid Blyton. After reading the book I planted a seed in the garden and was convinced that a tree would grow up to the clouds and I’d be able to visit magic lands at the top! Also when I watched Gremlins at the age of 5, I refused to believe that Mogwai’s didn’t exist and thought my Mum was just being stingy and wouldn’t let me have one!
12.What do you like doing in your free time?
I’m usually working on something, so when I do get some rare time off I like to get to the coast and chill with a good book and good company. I hand out with my sisters a lot and we sometimes we’ll visit a comedy club, having a relaxing spa weekend or just go for a nice meal and a few drinks. The days of wild partying are behind me and now I much prefer a cosy blanket and the latest episode of Game of Thrones!
13.What do you think is the most interesting thing about you?
People seem to be quite fascinated by the fact that I whip men’s bottoms and dress them up in girly clothes and make them over.
In real life, I love fantasy and writing about imaginary people and creatures, so not what people expect.
14.What was your nickname at school?
My friends called me Kaz, Kazzy and Pixie. Those that were not friends called me short arse, half pint and midget!
15.What three things do you need to be successful in this industry?
Determination to keep going even when you encounter obstacles.
The ability to develop a thick skin – not everyone will be your fan.
The ability to adapt and reinvent yourself.
