HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
Well, I've always had an interest for it. I used to be very into being a photographer, but I always longed to be on the other side of the camera. Finally, my mother having a lot of connections in the alternative world introduced me to a photographer, Roger J Zwinklis, that had even shot her when she was younger, after everyone praising how natural I was in the shoot I decided to leap forward.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
Everything. I love the thrill of being in front of the camera and the confidence I gain after every shoot. The new ideas and concepts that flood my mind and the constant work I put into improving.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
So far, I've only shot in few outfits. I like outfits that I can move my body in strange ways in. Any kind of outfit that shows a little of who I am. I haven't had the chance to shoot in latex but I am totally in love with the idea of it. I'm currently getting into some implied modeling, we'll see how that turns out.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I haven't really run into that problem yet, probably anything that I would feel is holding me back and hiding my personality.
WHAT KIND OF SHOOTS WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK ON IN THE FUTURE?
I would love to do a really futuristic shoot, really syfy and maybe something enchanting and mythical. Dark fantasy is always a favorite of mine, I'd really like to work on that in the future. I love dark fashion.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I actually do. I am in the process of creating my own clothing line, DeadLeigh Clothing. I have pictures included that I shoot for my clothing line. I've never quite been able to figure out my passion until I decided one day to attempt to draw a tattoo design for myself. I quickly discovered that I was actually good at it and decided I wanted to make tee shirt designs, as I move forward with the clothing line I hope to bring in many elements including make up and one of a kind articles of clothing.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
Most. My mother owning a record label has forced me to be pretty open minded, just for the love of god keep gospel and country AWAY! I listen to anything from Skillex to Lacuna Coil to Bring Me The Horizon.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Fun to me is my modeling and clothing company. It's were all of my creativity and energy goes. It's my true love. Along with spending time with my friends and going to concerts.
