Interview: Model Olga-Maria Veide (Ukraine)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I am 19 y.o and I have started modeling 1,5 year ago and during this time I have learnt a lot ,worked with many great photographers from all over the world and I must say that I am totally in love with the world of photography.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
There are so many things that I would like to change that it would take all day to tell about it!I am very self-critical and I always find in me something that I would like to change-both in appearance and in personal qualities.
How did you start modeling?
I have never thought that I could be a model but as far as I always attract adventures to me ,I met a modeling agent from Sweden and he made me love to shoot and love myself .Our cooperation was not long and now I am freelance- model and open to work in different kinds of projects.
What do you think of the work as a model?
For me it is the best work in the world!Modeling is not easy of course and when you see a beautiful picture it means that it was a very elaborate and harmonical work of a photographer and a model ,not only «one click» and a nice photo is ready.Models must be flexible and should know how to change all the time in accordance with a theme of shooting.Every shooting for me is like one more life.
What is your beauty regimen?
It is very important to have positive thoughts in your mind-then you will look great whatever happens.I do nothing special to be beautiful,only basic things-gymnastis,jogging ,contrast shower and healthy food.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
This is my adventurousness in a great measure!And also there is nothing impossible to me ,I have no limits.
What are your plans for the future?
I am a very spontaneous and impulsive person and that mean that every new minute I have new plans for the futureJBut the only thing that I am sure in is that I want to do a lot of charity that is connected with homeless dogs and cats,especially in poor countries.I had many shootings with animals and I love them madly.Also,I think that we need to extend the space for the art of disabled people because no doubts there are many undiscovered talents among them.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
My favourite experience was shooting in Jerusalem in the district where only orthodox people live .I was in a tight-fitting black dress not very short but not covering my legs and this made every passer-by shout on me so that I felt myself like Maria Magdalena JBut this was really great shooting because I like when it is more alive ,vivid , when you see the real life how it really is ,then you catch really wonderful moments with the camera.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
I would advice to act and improve all the time learning more and more about what you want to do trying to find out what is special about and demonstrating it.If you feel that it is right what you want-then just act,spread your wings wider and fly to your goal.If you are not sure then just listen to your heart,your inner voice,it will never let you down!
What do you think of the magazine?
I think that this magazine is like a runway for many young and talanted people who dedicate themselves to art.I am really happy that they have the possibility to show their production ,share their experience and find a lot of new ideas and inspiration.
