As you may or may not be aware, Amy Willerton is more than just a model to us, she’s part of our UK Model Folios family. We are so proud of how she has conducted herself in the jungle thus far, despite being a victim of some clear mistreatment by other camp Members.
We met Amy through sponsoring the Miss London beauty pageant (regional heat for Miss England and Miss World). We spotted from the offset she had that certain something; the ‘X-Factor’ if you will, and we were right.
Travelling to Thailand with Amy after she won a photoshoot with us and Alan Strutt to shoot there was a real highlight. It was on those stunning beaches we shot her debut calendar and spent time really getting to know the real Amy.
Here’s some of our highlights! #TeamAmy x
We are very excited to welcome on board another fabulous female photographer

It is common, particularly for newbie or amateur models to come and visit us at UK MODEL FOLIOS with an established look. The most difficult thing for them is to allow us to take over and create something different that says, ‘model’ and usually means stepping away completely from what they have been used to creating themselves.
Think of it as Tyra Banks in ANTM- everyone loves the makeover episode, right? And the truth is, how many times have you ever looked at the makeovers and thought Tyra was wrong? Exactly, never!
Our favourite recent makeover was for model Claire Leeson AKA Kymberly Fox. Half Mexican, half St Lucian mix, she has stunning natural features but much to Claire’s dismay short hair.
Claire arrived with an array of 18″ plus extensions and wigs convincing us they look great on her because they are natural hair. And don’t get us wrong, from the pictures Claire had sent of her alter-ego Kymberly, Kym does look fab in the wigs- but what about Claire? Claire clearly was missing how beautiful she was and as a result, had been hiding behind the wigs and huge eyelashes. Her icon is Kim Kardashian and though she didn’t want to be seen as a Kim wannabe, she was subconsciously mimicing her and in the process, overriding her own attributes.
Luckily, Claire is one of the sweetest souls and was totally up for us using her natural beauty to create somewhat of a transformation for our lens. It was so great to have her leave not only smiling ear-to-ear because of her fabulous shots but also to hear her say, how much she loves her new look and is going to rock all the different styles we showed her she can create with her gorgeous, edgy fro.
