She was on a photo of Chris Harrison, that we spotted on Facebook. As we asked her for an interview, we were surprised, that she's completely new to modeling and just did two shoots at all. One with Chris Harrison, the other with John Jobling, who we both featured in the last two years.
Today now we like to introduce you to this amazing young lady, who convinced us with some of her first photos, up and coming model Shannon Hansen from South Shields, UK. Take a look at her photos and read the interview with her.
My full name is Shannon Louise Hansen, I am 20 years old and born in South Shields, which is where I have always lived! I have a son who is 1 year old and work part time as a care assistant. I love my job and helping people.
What do you love most about modelling?
I am very new to modelling. I have currently only done two photoshoots but couldn't fault them at all, I guess I'm lucky! I have had such a great response which has left my next few weeks packed. Behind the scenes has been great, I have felt more comfortable with the photographers than I ever imagined I would. I am a very shy person.
What’s been the highlight of your career so far?
The highlight of my modelling career so far has been meeting the photographers and going out of my comfort zone. I usually find it hard handelling a lot of attention but since my shoots that's all I've had, I must admit I am enjoying it.
My most recent shoot has been my favourite, with grime and glamour. Photography. We went to the quayside (Newcastle) and it was amazing! There was so much to shoot with!
Define your personal style.
My personal style is anything. Literally. It varies from day to day, sometimes I am dark but other times I am bright and flowery. It really depends on my mood.
What do you hope to be doing in the next 5 years?
In the next 5 year I hope to be modelling, full time. The whole idea of modelling excites me! From taking the images to looking at them. The whole industry makes me feel great.
Who would you say is your 'style muse'?
I would say my style muse is Cara Delevingne.
If you could be anywhere else but here, where would you go?
If I could be anywhere but here, it would be Paris.
We wish you all the best in your modeling career, Shannon, and hope to see many more photos of you in the futrue.
