Today on the blog we talk to New Face Cameron Burke. After establishing his modelling career in London he is now seeing what the North East has to offer. Watch this space!
What do I enjoy most about being a model?
The thing I enjoy most about being a model is the definitely the travelling. Being able to travel to Milan and New York on my own at the age of 16 was something I will forever be grateful for and the independence it gave me really developed me into a better person.
What is my career highlight to date?
My career highlight is featuring on Vogue Italia whilst over in Milan. This was a crazy moment for me as it was my first big achievement in the industry which really motivated me to keep on pushing to develop further and go on to bigger and better things.
When I was a kid I wanted to be…
When I was a kid I always wanted to be a basketball player. All I did as a kid was play basketball, roughly for around 10+ hours per week as it was my main passion and I wanted to take it as far as possible.
In five years time I hope to be…
In five years time I want to be in a position where I can model full time alongside developing my own street wear company. Modelling is a job I love doing so to be able to do it full time would be my absolute dream and it is definitely a goal I have set myself for the future. With regards to the street-wear brand, I always sit at home designing my own unique ideas so I thought to myself, why not try and sell them as a part of my own brand? I love the street-wear culture so to be able to establish my own brand and seeing people walking around wearing my products would be an amazing feeling that I hope I can make happen in the future.
My biggest celebrity crush is…
My biggest celebrity crush is without a doubt Ariana Grande, no explanation needed really.
If I could travel to anywhere in the world it would be:
If I could travel anywhere in the world it would hands down be New York City. The city is just amazing there’s an endless amount of things to do and the friends I’ve made over there are some of the best people I’ve met, I will never get bored of visiting New York.
My dream brand to work for would be:
My dream brand to work for would be Supreme. I love the connection the street wear community has as it brings so many people together in this unique culture that no other community has created.
My inspiration for being in this industry?
The best thing for me is that I don’t really have an inspiration to be in the modelling industry. I was a 16-year-old kid on holiday when I was stopped by a model offering me a business card to become a model for their agency. My personality prior to signing my first modelling contract was a nervous kid who just did his own thing and wouldn’t have even considered the thought of becoming a model. After days of telling them no, I finally decided to give modelling a go and since then it has changed my life in so many positive ways and has opened me up to opportunities I will always be thankful for and will always feel blessed to have been given this opportunity.
