It was my dream from childhood. When i was 18 my friend photographer asked me to pose for him. My first shooting was a nude shooting. It was chellenging back then, but now feel free with my body and posing.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I think its a hard job if you do it profesional. You should always know how you look like, how you pose, how your body looks like with a day or studio light. Actually, the big part of a picture mood is made by a model. I feel it like a big responsibility and always try to do my best to get get better pictures.
