Always a pleasure, never a chore. That is indeed our motto when it comes to work, particularly when one is fortunate enough to be commissioned to join Alan Strutt and Samantha Womack on a photoshoot for Hello! Magazine in Portugal’s hidden Heaven- Juicy Oasis. Home and baby of the iconic juice master, Jason Vale, take a look at the behind-the-scenes video we shot of the stunning photoshoot and for the full images and interview pick up this week’s Hello!
Hi Fay! Tell us, what was it like being asked to go and be a guest judge at the EM Magazine event?
It was great and a real honour. I loved meeting all of the lovely ladies and working on the panel with the other judges, plus it was a brilliant opportunity for me to get UK Model Folios and Celebrity Publicity out there.
Have you been a judge at any other events before?
Yes, I judged Miss Maxim 2007.
As a judge what were you looking for in the girls that had entered the competition?
The winner of Miss Every Model goes through to represent the magazine in the Miss England final with of course potential to be the next Miss England. This year Miss England are looking for a lady with strong model potential so this was one of the key factors I was looking for. After that I judged the ladies a lot on how they came across personality-wise not just vocally, but how sincere they seemed. Miss England is a very important role and as a representative of our country she needs to be likeable and intellgent.
Were you nervous about what to wear?
A little because like all of these events you never know what people are going to wear. Luckily I had a pre-consultation email with the lovely E M magazine editor, Ruth Deane who gave me some ideas!
The UK Model Folios advert on the back of Every Model Magazine is lovely, were you happy when you saw it up close?
So happy! The quality of the magazine is beautiful, which fortunately showed the advert off to its fullest potential. Callum was in the audience and spotted it first and started randomly showing people *laughs* Before we left he left he strategically placed the magazines on to the advert page so people would see it! *Laughs again*
What three things stand out most for you in a model?
Facial beauty, body and hair.
Do you think that entering competitions can help girls further their career?
Dependent upon which competition it is, yes. Some model competitions are a complete rip odd but others such as Miss England I believe are great opportunities and very beneficial for models.
As someone who has worked closely with a lot of successful models what stood out about them?
The obvious is their physical appeal and their ability to move for the camera, but after that it’s how easy they were to work with. Once I meet a model I never tend to focus on how beautiful she was, but more if she was nice. Classic statements are: “I met such and such; what a nightmare!” Or “Oh, she was so lovely and ridiculously beautiful!”
Will you be running any competitions through UK Model Folios?
Yes, we already run several via other big name brands. Currently we’re offering a monthly portfolio prize to the models of Candy Crib, a once in a lifetime calendar trip to Thailand and a portfolio package to the winner of Miss England.
What do you think makes a competition successful and worth entering?
If the prize is beneficial to you. We try to make all of our prizes worthwhile to the person winning them i.e. a model portfolio for a model is a fabulous prize and will help them by saving money and bagging a dream campaign.
What other events have you been to recently?
Recently I’ve been to a WAGS event to raise money for South Africa and UK Model Folios donated a prize; I had more of a social catch-up with my friends at Fox Media, IGN where they rented a bar to watch England – luckily we won that day and the bar was free; 90 degrees outside – London town = good times. Also, I’ve been getting involved with the St Matthews Academy in South East London, which is a business and enterprise school. I attended an evening there to talk to pupils about furthering your career and improving entrepreneurial skills.
Are you looking forward to shooting the next cover page for EM Magazine?
Definitely. I love to shoot different styles, particularly fashion and commercial because I find it more challenging. Kayleigh, the model is stunning too so it should be a great day!
