Interview: Model Lara Macra (Germany) Winner of the Month, Cover girl issue 25 (part1) July 2017
Winner of the Month
Can you tell us a little about you?
I’m 24 years old and live in Bonn, Germany. When I was 16 years old I started modelling and now I work as a model to pay for my studies. In my spare time I love being in nature and backpacking around the world. I really like the music of the 60s and 70s and pagan folk, but also a lot of other kinds of music.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
Nobody is perfect, but I like that :-D
How did you start modeling?
When I was 16 years old, I was on my way to a night club with a friend. There a guy asked us if he could take pictures of us because he worked as a photographer and we agreed. Two days later we had a photoshoot in his studio. After which i signed a contract with an agency and also started to search for interesting jobs on a modelling social page.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I really love my job. Modelling started as a hobby and even though I could live of it at this point, it is still a hobby for me and not only work. You meet a lot of wondeful and interesting people and you can slip into many roles or have the chance to show your different personalities. But it is also a very hard job, of course, stand up at 3 or 4 o’clock in the morning, shooting in Dessous at -5°C or shooting in winter coat at 40°C, have aching muscles in body parts you never imagnined etc.
What is your beauty regimen?
Feeling good with yourself. A beautiful presence comes from inside, just love yourself and be yourself.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
Good question haha :-D I think you have to ask my friends ;-)
What are your plans for the future?
I want to finish my studies and work as a anthropologist and I want to see all the counrties I haven’t seen until now.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
To get to know other countries and ethnic groups, their worldview and their way of life, their religion and their traditions, this is what I value so highly in my traveling experiences.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Only work as a model if you fave fun with that work. You can also start with free works for collecting experiences and get good photos.
What do you think of the magazine?
I really like the magazine, because it shows a lot of different kinds of beauty, different personalities and not only these “beauty standards”.
