Had you ever done a photoshoot prior to your shoot at the Photo Studio?
I didn’t have much experience, but I had done 2 photoshoots prior. I did a few beauty pageants, 1 shoot with Jack Mannix for Sneaky magazine and a TFP shoot with Padre for his artwork. Both are very talented photographers and now good friends of mine. They really helped me start building up a portfolio.
How did you become inspired to get into modelling?
It was actually Jack, my “Andy Warhol”, who encouraged me to start modelling. He approached me outside a cafe in Surry Hills and asked if I would be his muse for Sneaky Magazine. Apparently expecting me to tell him to contact my agency – I giggled and explained I didn’t model and had no agency. We became good friends straight away. I was really happy to work with him and “Precious Metals”.
How did you get signed into an agency?
I’ve been signed to a few different agencies now, but I’m currently enjoying working freelance as I am able to choose the jobs I like. The Model Sauce and Beauty Gaze Promotions are helping me with advertising at the moment. It’s a difficult industry as you never know when you will get work, or what people are looking for. However, I’ve been lucky enough to work with photographers like Cover Girl Photography, J.J. Maher & Model Photographic to name a few. Also your lovely selves, The Photo Studio.
What would be your advice to someone who is trying to get into glamour modelling?
Just go for it. Enter as many competitions as you can, go to every casting, use platforms like social media to help and just get out there. A lot of things empower girls. And for me, it’s glamour modelling. I was always very shy and struggled with very low self esteem. So seeing the final images of me was kinda like “Is that really me?”. Glamour modelling has given me so much confidence, it’s a dream come true to get this far. Hopefully it’s something I can pursue it in the future.
So we hear you’re also launching a singing career, tell us all!
Yes! Finally! Music has always been a hobby of mine. I always liked playing with words, and rhymes, and stories. I can sit for hours sometimes writing and I won’t get bored. My Album #CandyRocks will be released ASAP. For now you can listen to my teasers & demos of songs like #RainingJellyfish, #SweetLittleBitch & #IWontBeAtTheParty on my Soundcloud Music Page – Soundcloud.com/LoreleiOfficial.

Who is your biggest inspiration?
Give us an insight into what happens during a day in the life of a glamour model
Sometimes up to 6 shoots in a day. Sometimes absolutely nothing. You never really know what’s around the corner, but I think that’s why I like it so much.
