Interview: Model Victoria Cwynar (Poland)
Can you tell us a little about you?
A little is perfect word for the beginning because I’m only 160. I’m studying biotechnology on the 3rd year. I was born in 1997 and since I was a child I’ve been interested in art (drawing, painting, singing and also watching paintings of others, movies and so one and so forth). I own a clothing brand with my boyfriend.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be? I would probably change my very critical approach to myself and I’d love to finally start writing down my modelling jobs in my calendar.
How did you start modeling?
I used to hate when somebody’s trying to take a picture of me but one day professional photographer invited me for photo shoot. I wasn’t keen on this idea but he didn’t give up. It was both small and big step forward for me. I finally overcame my shyness. After that more and more photographers were trying to contact me. I did a few photo shoots and I was found by scouts from a few agencies. That’s all :)
What do you think of the work as a model?
Being a model means for me treating your body as a canvas for creation. It’s beautiful and that’s why it’s also my hobby. Many people think that it’s easy job and all you have to do is being pretty. I think that models should know their facial expressions nearly as good as actors, have great communication skills to understand how to show the project idea on pictures and have strong personality. Sometimes I was staring at bright lights in studio for many hours, being on set for a really long time. It's not like physical hard work but you have to be very involved.
What is your beauty regimen?
I believe in water. We’re made in 60-70% of this liquid so I try to drink as much as possible. Because I work mainly as a portrait model, face is the most important in my beauty regimen. First of all I don’t wear any makeup on daily basis, every morning and before I go to sleep I carefully clean my face, apply serum and cream after that. I use conditioners and masks for my hair and also I avoid using heat to stylise them. I walk a lot to maintain my physical condition but I can’t wait to get back to running!
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I’m not one of those androgynous, freckled or outstanding models. I’m a petite pale brunette with big hazel eyes. My attitude to world is quite old fashioned I don’t like parties. I prefer to spend sometime in the bosom of nature.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
My favourite experiences are connected with music videos. I love taking part in projects which are created by people from different industries. While working in such projects I met human being who are the most passionate about art and their jobs. From operators to musicians. It’s incredible!
What are your plans for the future?
I planned only one thing - to finish my studies. I’m at the same time I’m trying to become biotechnologist, doing modelling jobs, taking care of clothing brand. I don’t know what way I chose for life, maybe something new or all of actual activities.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Be patient, be tough, work on your character and mindset mor than on your body.
What do you think of the magazine?
I think the idea is brilliant. Not only does it focus on fashion publications and also it gives the opportunity to meet photographers and models!
