A look into the lives of our Community Creatives
What inspired you to venture into modeling?
"I have a photographer friend, and I eventually became more interested in picture in overall.But one day she showed me a picture on Instagram of a certain middle Eastern male model staring dead into the camera, and I could feel something very mesmerizing and powerful from his gaze. And I wanted to try it myself."
"Haha, I don’t think I really have one, just trying to not look awkward. I try to be more intentional with what my body does and what kind of vibe I give off. And for more serious shots, I try mimic the gaze that had inspired me."
"There’s a purpose behind each shot, something the photographer wants to express through the picture, and I try my best to extend that to the viewers."
"A good fitting shirt means good waistline, shoulder width and sleeve length. If they are not the best fit for my body type, I try to modify the looks to the best of my ability by either tucking in/folding the back of the during front view shots, flexing my lats, or rolling up sleeves."
"I am a student at UCSD, selling chocolates on the side."
"It’s really hard. Japan, Bali, China, Iceland, Canada. There are just too many places I want to travel to."
"Viva la vida - Coldplay."
"Plain sweater with jeans/cotton pants."
"Necklace, but I often just tuck it under shirt."
