Q Are you looking forward to working in Portugal? Do you know much about the country?
A I know next to nothing about Portugal other than that's where Nandos comes from. To be honest I've only been abroad a couple of times in my life before. By the time I get to Portugal I'll have worked in Norway and France already. I'm a little apprehensive about being naked in the sun as I'm the palest-skinned person going but other than that it's all good. I already know some of the people going and know I'll be meeting others before then so really it will be like a meeting of friends for a week. I can't wait.

Q If you can't get Nandos will you go hungry in Portugal?
A Nooo, I've far too wide an appetite for that to happen. I've heard so many good things about steaks on a stone and the D'Ine Restaurant to worry about going hungry! I'm not a size zero and have no intention of this trip turning me into one.

Q Do you know anything about The Societies?
A Ever since I started working with John I've been hearing about the SWPP and Societies and of course the Jones family. I've heard so many people saying they're the best thing to happen to UK photography that I can't wait to meet Juliet and Terrie in person in Portugal. It's brilliant that they're supporting the trip, I just want to do my part well and make their, and John's, investment in me worthwhile.

Q What are your hopes for your next year in modelling?
A To carry on learning and growing as part of #TeamDenton. It's one of the best things that's ever happened to me. I've met so many wonderful people, travelled to places I'd never even heard of and really feel like I'm living the dream. If the next year could include the legendary Convention week I keep hearing about then even better but for now every gig is a new and exciting experience. I wouldn't be doing any of this without the support of my boyfriend Henry, my family and of course John and the rest of the team. Thanks to all of them for making it possible.

If you would like to join John and his team on safari in Portugal this September, then visit for details. Special rate available for Societies' members.
