Model: Lauren London
Lauren London, is a Canadian born self made model and makeup artist. Her diverse background with family from Germany, Poland, Ireland and Portugal gives Lauren a unique look which sets her apart in the industry.
Lauren has creativity running through her veins and the whole process that goes into planing her shoots is what she is most passionate about. Finding inspiration everywhere from Instagram and Pinterest and tearing pages from fashion magazines and creating mood boards is what helps her find her creative edge.
She has been shooting professionally for five years now and has worked with some of the best photographers in the city. Having travelled all over Canada and LA and Vegas to shoot. She still dabbles in makeup doing freelance appointments and does her own for many of her shoots. So what’s next for this up and coming model? Lauren says her goals are to help mentor other models getting in the industry while still working closely with her two agencies Kysa Management and Femme Fatal.
She is very much into tattoos and would love to one day be featured in INKED magazine. And another one of her goals in the next couple of years is to get into the makeup department of IATSE in Vancouver and maybe one day have a salon of her own where she can employ her friends who are also in the industry.
“It’s crazy how I fell into it. I feel very blessed and grateful because I know how hard it can be to make a name for yourself in this city. If I can give a tip to models wanting to break into the industry – it would be to not be afraid of rejection. A lot of the photographers I’ve worked with I’ve approached personally. If you have a creative vision and show that you have drive and want it, the odds are usually in your favour. Never stop believing in yourself and always push to be better. If you want something bad enough- take it. The results can be so beautiful.”
