Model portfolio of Madeleine Symes

It was amazing working with Madeleine Symes to create her fashion model portfolio. She has such a great editorial look so we did a number of different editorial style looks for her professional modelling portfolio. I love freckles so we kept any makeup to absolute minimum not to cover them and for that natural look model portraits and portfolio images that top editorial model agencies are after. She has such a perfect skin so doesn’t need any makeup. She is also very intelligent and talented. 

Madeleine Symes is half Irish and she is 18 years old. She has been living in a small town called Ferney Voltaire in France and going to a French lycée for the past 8 years so she is fluent in French and English and very good at Spanish as well! She just completed her OIB baccalaureate and has been accepted to study medicine at Norwich Medical School for the next 5 years. 

Madeleine loves doing sport. She has played football from a very young age along side her two brothers and in the local boys team in France of which she was captain for a while. Madeleine also loves to sail and has done so since she was 8 and today she is a qualified RYA dinghy instructor. She has also been playing the classical piano for over 10 years and played in concerts in my local “Conservatoire” in France. Last year she was walking through a shopping mall with her mother and this lady came up to them. She scouted her for the PRM modelling agency. She told her to get in touch as she had the potential to be a model. Unfortunately she had to go back to France and complete her final year of school. I am glad that she finally found time to take a first step in getting into modelling and she looks amazing!

I think with her unique and interesting look there might be a possibility of finding work in the modelling and hopefully earning some money to finance her studies. Although she does understand that modelling may be hard alongside studying medicine. I know it is not impossible to do both with some hard work, dedication and creativity like revising while having makeup and hair done which can take hours for shoots and fashion shows. Whatever she will decide I am sure she will make it a success.

“My experience during my first photoshoot was incredible. I didn’t know what to expect when I arrived and was very nervous about being out of my comfort zone and having to pose. However you made me feel extremely at ease and comfortable in front of the camera and I just thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience”.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Madeleine
