~ An interview of a talented artist in our General Photography Community.
Tell us a bit about yourself, Aisii. How did you get into modelling and why?
I was a ballerina for about 8 years. Then someone stopped me on the street and asked me if I would like to be a model.I was about 15 years.Tried for a couple of months and gave up.3 years later I met idaniphotography
.We fell in love, we started to make photos together and now, after almost 7 years we continue doing this, as professionals.
How did you discover DeviantArt and what makes you stay? idaniphotography
told me about deviantart.I started to upload my photos and because I received great feedback since day 1, I decided to stay.It was and it still is time consuming but I love to discover new artists and images every day.
How have things changed between you and idaniphotography with you both being professionals now?
We are doing a lot of commercial projects together.
What type of modelling do you most like to do and why?
I started as artnude model.Now I am doing mostly fashion. Why? Because is something new for me.Probably I will switch to something else when I'll consider that I made the best fashion images.
What would be the 'best fashion images' for you?
the ones I did not make yet. I still have a lot of things to show in fashion modelling.
How do you view modelling?
I was lucky enough to transform my hobby in a profession.
Could you tell us of your best and worst experiences with modelling? Is there a particular experience for you that stands out in your mind?
I can tell you about the best and worst experience at the same time. Shooting in a sheep farm.I have crazy good photos from that shooting, but the smell was imprinted in my skin for about 3 days.Totally worth all the trouble.
What are some key things that you think about before, during and after a photoshoot?
I don't think about food before the shooting, don't think about food during the shooting, eat like a pig after the shooting.
Could you please describe a bit about the process of modelling?
Every shooting is quite different. When shooting with someone new, you need a couple of minutes to get use to photographer's style of work.
What is your favourite piece and why?
This one. It's art, aestethics and beauty, all in one.
What are you most occupied with nowadays?
Housewife and mother.
How do you fit modelling in with being a housewife and mother?
I do my best not to lose important moments of my daughter's life. It's quite easy for me, my mother helps me a lot.
What advice would you give to aspiring models?
Invest in your future, make a portfolio. Then, be selective.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Be inspired. Don't give up.
Thank you Aisii!3wyl
