Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Karolina Faryńska and I'm 22 years old. I live in Lodz, city located in central Poland. I'm a photomodel - I have been doing this since I was 14 years old. I study marketing at Lodz University. I'm interested in internet marketing with particular emphasis on social media. I used to practice gymnastics when I was younger. Currently, pole dance is in addition to modeling my greatest passion.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
In an industry where it is all about perfection, it's very easy to get complexes. I believe that all our flaws make us unique and distinctive. Thanks to them we can constantly evolve and improve our skills. But if I had to choose one thing that most bothered me in my work as a model, it would definitely be my height. I'm quite short.
How did you start modeling?
Modeling has been my dream since I was a little child. I remember that I was 14 years old and a friend took me with her to a photo session. This was my first contact with the camera and then I knew that it made me feel contented and I felt that it was something I wanted to do in the future.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I think the work as a model is very underestimated. People think it is easy and pleasant and they do not realize how much work we need to put into a photo session to make it satisfying. I love meeting new people and this job allows me to do this. It's great that you meet strangers with whom you share the same passion, it connects you.
What is your beauty regimen?
As a child I used to practice gymnastics and that instilled love for sport in me. At present, I train pole dance and thanks to that I can stay in shape.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
It seems to me that the qualities that distinguish me from others are self-confidence, pursuit of goals and belief in myself. Some models place too little hope in the fact that persistent work and tenacity can lead them to success and dreams fulfilment. Of course, there are still many aspirations and things that I would like to achieve, but at the same time I know that with my current attitude, nothing is impossible.
What are your plans for the future?
When I started trying my hand at modeling 8 years ago I did not know that I would be bound to my future. Now I see myself as having a future with it. It gives me a lot of pleasure and I still want to go in that direction. My dream is to continue developing in this field and to be able to work with the best.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Each session is unique and unforgettable for me, but the one I will remember for the rest of my life is definitely my first session. This was the first time I saw myself in a completely different role and I had no idea at that time that it would be the beginning of the biggest, craziest adventure.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
As long as it's all in your head - just try! I assume that if you do not try it, you will never know if it's really for you. No matter what other people say or think, just do what you want to do. It is an exciting industry, so try it out if you have an opportunity.
What do you think of the magazine?
It is an amazing chance for models and photographers to share passion with people in the industry. It is also a great place to find inspiration for the next sessions.
