April Fitzgibbon, the Cork lass booked a shoot a while ago to update her portfolio. She was looking to approach an Irish model agency to be represented over here. She mentioned that she was currently doing her modelling work in the UK, but now she was looking to work more at home.
After her shoot in my Wexford Studio, she took her pictures to the Assets Agency Munster open day. This was a day where they search for potential models in the Cork and Munster area. This is a good idea from an agency point of view as a it adds a bit of balance to the location of models. Unfortunatly with the industry as small as it is in Ireland, most of the work is in the Dublin area. April impressed on the day however and she is now signed on the Assets Munster Section
Fairly soon after meeting April ( or if you follow her on Twitter or FaceBook), you get a sense of her pride of being a model who is “100% Natural, from head to toe”. She does not even have hair extensions….. her super long hair is all her own work. You will also get a sense of her intelligence as she is a self-confessed science lover and wannabe astronaut ( See the Sunday World recently )
April’s mom came along to the shoot with her for drive…. all 4 hours of it. It was a first for me having a parent in the studio during a shoot, but it was great support for April. Other people on set on the day included Nicole & Shauna Spain of Flutter By Styling who provided some of the clothes, April provided everything else her self. Aimee Connolly was also there available for makeup. April prefered to do here own make up, so Aimee was there for touch-ups.
