Model Therese Ellehaven (Denmark)

Can you tell us a little about you?

I am living in Denmark with my five years old son.

I’ve always loved being creative and expressing myself. My passion is in modelling, acting and dancing with a strong love for fantasy, fairytales and beauty.
I have a tendency to be a dreamer and to ask the big questions about life. At the same time, I try to enjoy every moment and appreciate the little things. 

 

If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?

Bad thoughts about myself. And thinking patterns that trap me instead of setting me free

 

How did you start modeling?

I have been very shy, but always loved acting. I think it was a way for me to express myself, without open my mouth, so I started on TFP basis, working together with photographers on shared ideas.

 

What do you think of the work as a model?

My work as a model right now, is great. I travel, meet people, see new homes and places. I feel in flow when I’m working, and when I have a beautiful product as the goal, I seem to be able to push my boundaries in a good way.  For me it is about getting a balance between the new and the known, so I can have a lot of great experiences, and still take good care of myself.   

 

What is your beauty regimen?

Eat healthy, taking care of my hair and have a healthy mind.

 

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

I’m very complex. Sensitive and strong at the same time. People often associate me with a fairy, elf or angel. And I’m a very forgiving person.

 

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

Making underwater pictures with Elinleticia Hogabo. It is very meaningful for me to work with Elinleticia, because I think we inspire each other a lot.

When we made the underwater pictures for PhotoVogue Italy, it was my first time shooting underwater.I loved it. It was everything I expected. While I’m in the water, I’m like a fish in the sea. No boundaries in ways to move. I feel free.

 

What are your plans for the future?

This fall I will move with my family to Copenhagen, where I will expand upon my experience as an actor and search for a modeling agency.

 

Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?

Try to define, what you love about modeling. What is your passion? What is your purpose?  Also, what is your limits? If you don’t know speak with your mom or a friend, to help you start thinking and feeling about it. When you are ready, write your own contract you can sign with the photographer, to secure you.

 

What do you think of the magazine?

It’s very beautiful. I love that you honor pictures and their creators, in this simple way.
