Interview: Model Olga Margreta (Netherlands)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Well what's to tell and share.. I'm just a woman of 36 who does what she likes to do. I'm a creative person.. Loves to paint. Do some photography myself and I'm expressing myself on the pictures.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I'm a perfectionist. It can be a good quality but sometimes it over rules me. I'm think I'm not the most easiest model to work with
How did you start modeling?
Well this is a funny story. My neighbor (hobby photographer) asked me 1,5 years ago to shoot some portraits and make some pictures with my paintings… that would be good for sales. She convinced me eventually… cause I thought… Me? Why? Is it necessary? Bit shy… NoNo really a bit shy! Cause I'm not that pretty.. I'm just normal and not a model for sure, right? !! Turns out that it was a great success after all
What do you think of the work as a model?
Modeling shoot be fun. It's hard work sometimes but when you are selective in who you are shooting with and a few times a week it will stay fun. Like every job and hobby
What is your beauty regimen?
No stress 😅 I think the anti aging of today is to reduce stress. How? That's different for everyone.. For me it's a day of “nothing” planned a week and every day a walk with my dog. I use daily vitamin E creme for my skin and do a few times a week a squat workout. Modeling is good for your muscles too! Oh and I don't drink.. And don't drink sodas. Coffee, tea, water and milk
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
Everyone is unique and beautiful in there own way. Me, I think I'm good in expressions because it's important to tell a story in every picture. Life ain't about being pretty all the time. My body is slim and very suitable for artistic nudes
What are your plans for the future?
I have learned myself not to look to far ahead… I love surprises in life. Especially when it's a big one
What are some of your favorite experiences so far? Nude on television hahaha
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Yes be selective and start to build a good portfolio even when you have to invest. You keep the dirt away :)
What do you think of the magazine?
I'm really enthusiastic about it, it looks good and elegant and of course exposure always is a good way to be discovered more and hope our work is appreciated. You help a little and I'm grateful you asked me to be a part of your wonderful magazine
