Hi, my name is Tatiana and I am from Bratislava, Slovakia. I moved to Manchester 18 years ago. Since that time I’ve had a few occupations such as an au-pair, office secretary and currently I work in the financial sector.
I always wanted to break into modelling but never had the confidence to pursue it. This is because historically, the trend was based on size zero models. It is also coupled with the feeling that I am more confident in my appearance now than ever before.
The only previous experience I’ve had in terms of modelling was when approached to do studio and on location photography shoots for student photographers, modelling clothes and makeup. I really enjoyed the experience and wanted to do more. It made me realise how much I enjoyed being in front of a camera showing different poses, moods and personality – a bit like acting.
I really enjoy dressing up- the crazier the better. I find it to be a very fun experience.
I have had a portfolio done not long ago and it made me realise how important it is to connect with a photographer in order to get good shots. I think we worked well as a team and produced some good images.
