Interview: Model Geertje Korthuis (Netherlands)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I am Geertje Korthuis, 25 years old and I live in a small village up in the north of the Netherlands. When I was 21 year I have followed my biggest dream and that was to become a lady truck driver. Behind the big wheel! And there is modelling, way different then driving a big truck but I love to do that. It's me. I can be a real lady. No dirty clothes and workingshoes but pretty high heels awesome styling make up andere nice hair.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I think I need al little bit more self confidence. I need to stand up and say that I am okey and that I do things well. But I think that thru the years you will learn anything about life. Also the need of self confidence.
How did you start modeling?
I think I was a year or 15 something like that and there was a photographer who asked me if I wanted to do a photoshoot. So I thought who would not want that at that age. So I went and I loved it right from the start. And that's where it al started.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I really love to do modelling. Not that much as a fulltime job but more every now and then. I love to be away from my daily world and be a lady!
What is your beauty regimen?
I don't really have a special beauty regime. I always clean my face with normal water and put on a hydrating daycream. I don't wear a lot of make up. I like it pure natural.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
Well I am who I am. I am not a model who always looks like a model. I don't do different because I do modelling or that I drive a big truck.
I am me!
What are your plans for the future?
Just gonna do what I love to do. Follow my heart and live day by day.
See what the future will bring me.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
There is not just one favorite experience. I always love to see the results of a shoot. From bridal shoots to high fashion. I am just having fun with it.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Start to build up your portfolio with a good photographer. Take advice from other models and photographers. And just have fun!
What do you think of the magazine?
I think it's a great magazine to see other models and photographers from all over the world. You can learn a lot.
