My name is Sohaib Syed and I’m from Tralee, County Kerry.
I’m a published Fitness, Fashion and Alternative model and I’ve been modelling for almost three years.
I’ve worked with a good few photographers from various parts of the world, based here in Ireland and I’ve built my modelling portfolio over the past three years or so.
I work as an Electrical & Electronic Engineer in Belfast so that’s where I’m living at the moment. I also play music and have my own band called Scylla.
I got introduced to modelling when one of my friends, Emma Ray, and her friend, Oisin Vink, a great photographer from Dublin, were looking for a few people to model, for a college project. I messaged Emma and she asked me to come down. I went to that photoshoot and it Oisin took some fitness shots of me. The results were very impressive and ever since then I’ve been modelling for various photographers around the country for Fashion, Fitness and any other type of modelling, be it alternative, creative, etc.
I’m very passionate about modelling and I’ve a very professional attitude towards it. I have met so many nice people, both photographers and other models that I’ve worked with, through modelling and I’ve been to so many nice places for photoshoots.
I’m going to Slovenia on the 8th of January to shoot with a Slovenian Photographer, Rok Mlinar, so that will be my first photoshoot outside of Ireland. I’m really looking forward to it.
I recently joined the LSH/RMNI Modelling Agency so I’ll be doing work for them after Christmas time, so it’s going to be a busy year ahead of me next year. I’m really looking forward to it.
I would like to thank all of the photographers and all of the models, make-up artists and stylists and everyone else that I’ve worked with in the past for their great efforts. I wouldn’t have been where I am without you guys.
