Interview: Model Natalia Klimza (Poland)

23 Jan 2018

Can you tell us a little about you?

Hi, my name is Natalia. I am an Interior Designer by profession but I work as a photographer on a daily basis. As soon as I started posing I had a lot of ideas for photoshoots, I was captivated by fashion and fashion photography. I worked as a stylist until I finally stood on the other side of the lens. Other than that I spend a lot of time with music, I love to sing and play bass.

 

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

I used to perceive myself in negative light. I did not like some of my personality traits or my apperance. But thanks to the work on myself I accepted my faults, imperfections and weaknesses. I started to feel good with myself. I think that self-acceptance and self-esteem are fundamental if we want to be happy with our lives.

 

How did you start modeling?

Everything started when I created a fashion blog. At first I had a lot of problems with posing. I didn't know what to do, I felt awkward. Quite fast I realized that I'm aware of my body and that I don't need to be ashamed of it. Posing became more and more natural for me and I started to pay more attention to form and aesthetics of my blog posts. Organization of the photoshoot - from creating a moodboard, through cloths selection, scouting photoshoot locations, sometimes sketching frame concepts and even retouching - turned out to be more attractive to me than blogosphere. It was just a matter of time when I would stand on the other side of the lens.

 

What do you think of the work as a model?

Model's work is quite unusual. Sometimes it requires you to leave your comfort zone. More than once I had to grit my teeth and pose in cold weather or wake up in the middle of the night to catch the sunrise. But the more photoshoots you do the easier it becomes to overcome these obstacles, they cease to be a challenge. Experiences like that shape and strengthen character. On the other hand posing is very engaging. By focusing on your own body and emotions time flies by and after long day of posing you can be tired, and statisifed, like after a long traning session.

 

What is your beauty regimen?

I'm very lucky to be naturally slim so I don't have to do much to maintain my weight. Even so, I try to eat healthy. It doesn't always go well because I love candy. Other than that I regulary practice yoga.

 

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

I like the fact that I participate in so many projects and that I can find myself in them. Not everyone will see this as a quality but for me it's a way to continous and comprehensive development. I usually need some time to breath after I finish several of my ongoing projects. When I want to create something new but I don't have any ideas I devote more time to music which very often allows me to take a break from what I've done and causes a big flow of inspiration. This cycle repeats itself over and over again.

 

What are your plans for the future?

I live with the moment, with every project that I do. Only time will tell what's next. While in college I was convinced that I will become an interior designer. Along the way a lot has happened and I would never guess that today i will be in the place I am now. Not long ago I couldn't imagine that I would work as a model for such companies as, for example, Loreal, that I would start my own business in which I would be a photographer or that I would play in a full-length movie.

 

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

I would say that my favourite experience is that every cooperation looks a bit different and you get to meet so many interesting people during photoshoots. Each person brings something unique to the project and it's a breath of fresh air.

 

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

I think it's worth to find an agency. People working there have more experience than you and they will guide you in the right direction. It is very important if you are under 18 and you are not fully aware of yourself and you just started. At first you will have to learn a lot so your booker will organize some test photoshoots. Be patient, enjoy what you have achived so far, work hard and you will achieve success.

 

What do you think of the magazine?

Interview section is what distinguishes you from other magiznes. I think that it's a very interesing initiative which allows to meet many young artists. I'm very pleased and greatful that you invited me to collaborate with you. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/rubyfridays/
