Grace Petheram - Model Feature
Interview with model Grace Petheram
Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into modelling?
Well it all started with my mum to be honest, just after my 21 professional images taken of her and myself. So I organised a shoot for her as a birthday present at Clifton Photography in Bristol; and from that day I just got hooked. Most of my work is freelance, and most of my jobs I get from castings via Purpleport or Model Mayhem.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Well I work full time 6 days a week, and then do shoots whenever I'm free. However, when ever I do get a moment to myself; I'm either with my fiance whose a tattoo artist and has done a few of my pieces or I'm shouting at my TV playing on my PS4. Which I have been told off a couple of times by the neighbors for my language. What can I say I love Assassins Creed and Call of Duty.
We launched in April 2015, so far, what do you think of our brand?
I'm a big fan of the brand, I love the style and and the street feel to it. I have a couple of items in my wardrobe love the tshirts and hoodies so comfy.
What is your favourite item of clothing in your closet right now?
Well if I'm not "borrowing" my fiances Adidas jumper or tshirts, my favourite item is probably my ripped jeans. They are always my go to item. However I don't have a closet for clothes but I do have a closet just for my shoes. This I have 250 pairs at the moment. My fiance says I'm a shopping addict.
Is there a photographer or model you would really like to work with?
Well I love photography and have been thinking about going back to college to get involved with it. I love creative images and images that portray emotions and mixed feelings that and urban images. I love the contrasts of colours you get. But a photographer I would love to work with is Harris Nukems.
On a night out with your friends, you wind up in a karaoke bar. What song do you sing and why?
I guess depends on the friends I'm out with but probably The Eye of the Tiger, however, often I do find myself singing The Final Count Down when I'm on shoots or walking through town.
What was the first album you bought?...No fibs now ;)
First album hmmmm that's think back a bit was a tape Smash Hits 2 which has Skatman love that song still brings back fun memories but at the same time I bought my first Slipknot album which was in 1999 the debut album.
What pop song is your guilty pleasure?
So recently this year I have turned to the dark side of like Justin Bieber always seems to get me into the dancing mood.
Describe you perfect night in?
Has to be a good old zombie film, pizza ice cream curled up with the fella. I love my junk food. Food is the way to my heart.
Who inspires and why?
It would have to be my Dad he was in the Royal Navy for 35 years fought in 3 wars. Lots of my tattoos are to do with him. Unfortunately he is now battling with grade 4 cancer. But that doesn't stop him from being a social butterfly and he always has the biggest smile on his face and always wants to get involved and go for the longest walks. Which you always ask is it going to be flat or up hills. He'll always say flat and then you end up walking up a muddy mountain. Like Snowdon. He's the strongest and bravest person I know.
Besides world domination, what are your plans for the future?
To be honest I take each day as it comes and to see what happens. However, I'm really looking forward to getting married in December and having a massive party. Love a good celebration; anything that brings the family together.
If you had to pic a favourite movie, what would it be and why?
Fear and loathing in Las Vegas with Johnny Depp; don't think it needs an explanation to why. That or Deadpool. It had me laughing from the opening credit to the end credit, I guess that explains my humor.
Favourite character from a comic book or graphic novel?
Favourite character out of a comic? Has to be DEADPOOL , he's amazing! Not a normal hero but does the best job ever.
You can give one object (the same object) to everyone in the world what would it be and why?
I have no idea, everyone has different interests and different items can be useful to different people, this question is what you seem to see in pageants, like my answer should be "world peace" but maybe an Ipod music always helps in any situation deaf people can listen to the vibrations and think music can make people happy and improve on a really bad day.
If someone gave you the power to save just one animal species on Earth. Which would it be?
Oh God, should I really be trusted with that. Ermm would love to say bees as the Planet need them to survive. But I would love to save tigers; they are beautiful creature love them always have since I was little.
Where can we see more of you and your work?
