    Christian - Live and let live

    Hi my dear, my name is Christian, also called lion's head ...

    Als Fotomodel stehe ich jetzt schon seit ca. 7 Jahren  vor der Kamera und es wird nie langweilig im Gegenteil, man lernt ständig neue Leute kennen und kann verschiedene Projekte gemeinsam umsetzen.

    Make-up & Hairstyles mach ich größtenteils selbst.

    Bei manchen Jobs kann man sich einfach zurücklehnen und wird geschminkt,  dennoch nehme ich es auch gerne selbst in die Hand , besonders wenn es um meinen Wuschelkopf geht :D

    Bisher habe ich mit ganz tollen Fotografen /Models/VISA’s Zusammenarbeiten dürfen und jedes Shooting hatte seinen Reiz von Dessous bis sexy- sportlich... lustig oder sinnliche!

    Anbei ganz liebe Grüße an alle mit denen ich bisher Zusammenarbeiten durfte!

    Ohne euch wäre das alles hier nicht möglich. Danke!!!

    Liberty - Rising Star

    In the next few weeks I will be a catwalk model for Birmingham Fashion Festival and currently, I am a semi-finalist for Miss Midlands UK 2018.

    If you asked me 3 months ago to participate within these events I most definitely would of said no. It has shown me how modelling can increase self-confidence and can teach you to love yourself for you!

    These two amazing opportunities made me realize how lucky I am and how far I have come in the last few months.

    I am extremely excited and still ridiculous overwhelmed by both opportunities.

    Megan - Becoming a model and being a role model

    My confidence in myself and in photographers is building each day.

    My eye/mind for recognizing talent, beauty, and art is broadening and the support from friends, family and from other models has been amazing!

    We even have our own local model group chat where we can recommend photographers, ideas, and locations to each other.

    It’s an industry that I didn’t expect so much support from as people are very quick to judge but I have gained more than ever and for that I am thankful.

    Jackée Montel - start being that beautiful person that you are

    I would tell young girls to stay true to themselves. Be positive and keep on going. Because you only get what you put in so go big and keep chasing cause eventually, you’ll catch it! Always love yourself and never let no one tell you that you can’t do it! Because you can!

    Jcole said it best “ no such things as a life that’s better than yours, love yours” I truly believe whatever size or shape you are OWN IT! Self-love is the best love. Let your insecurities go and start being that beautiful person that you are. This is your life live it freely without being ashamed because you are beautiful.

This Is England

https://www.timeout.com

‘This is England’ was the title under which Humphrey Jennings’s 10-minute paean to beleaguered but indomitable British pluck, ‘The Heart of Britain’, was presented in the US in 1941. After showing the wreckage of Coventry and life in the shadow of the Blitz, the narration forecast that ‘the Nazis will learn, once and for all, that no one with impunity troubles the heart of Britain’. As the opening montage of Shane Meadows’s new film makes clear, the heart of Britain was troubled in 1983.

Cross-cutting between Roland Rat and Maggie Thatcher, rioting and the royal wedding, it’s a nifty scene-setter for a deft, heartfelt local story in which the nation is at a different kind of war, and violent bigotry is not an external threat but literally wraps itself in the flag.

Grieving a father lost in the Falklands, lonely 12-year-old Shaun (Thomas Turgoose) is taken under the wing of a local skinhead gang, which includes the dryly charismatic Woody (Joe Gilgun), appealingly dippy Smell (Rosamund Hanson) and cheerful Milky (Andrew Shim), whose parents are Caribbean. As in any pack, there are pecking orders and face-offs, but the generous-minded ‘spirit of ’69’ prevails – until the older Combo (Stephen Graham) returns from jail exuding the stench of aggressive racism, which can’t quite mask the whiff of something lost, desperate and sad. Soon there is speechifying; vulnerable spots are exploited, lines are drawn and a summer of happy belonging mutates into something darker.

With his Nottingham-centric trilogy (‘Twentyfourseven’, ‘A Room for Romeo Brass’ and ‘Once Upon a Time in the Midlands’) and 2004’s ‘Dead Man’s Shoes’, Meadows has created a body of unmistakably English work, but ‘This Is England’ is the first time nationalism has explicitly underpinned the action. Drawing on the director’s own experiences, the film offers assured insights into the pleasures and wages of tribalism, and the ease with which both the urge to belong and individual insecurities and resentments can be grievously spun into political capital. The St George cross initially seen on a poster of the England squad on Shaun’s bedroom wall becomes a coddling blanket of self-justification, then a badge of self-loathing.

If Shaun’s progress can feel a bit schematic and there’s the odd formal lapse into melodrama, these are outweighed by Meadows’s confident pacing and the superb performances of the young ensemble. Turgoose marvellously captures that awkward stage of early adolescence where a yearning for self-determination can’t quite stretch to independence – he goes to buy bovver boots with his mum – and Graham ensures that Combo is pitiable even at his most vile, while the rest of the gang – many of whom studied together – are relaxed, enjoyable company. The film also pays tribute to the music whose enjoyment initially marked skinheads as early adopters of multiculturalism. Even Combo retains his love of ska – a capacity for transcendence that rhymes with the scenes in Jennings’s film in which a Huddersfield choir sings Handel and Beethoven at the height of hostilities.
