Interview: Model Luisa Mazzanti (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Luisa and I am a young girl from Italy who discovered her love for photography a lot of time ago. I am a very extravagant person, with a strong character, who loves nature and well-being. Photography for me is a way of expressing myself and my feelings.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
If I could change anything about me ... I would like to be more serene with myself. I wouldn’t like to create anymore obstacles for myself and to live a little lighter.
How did you start modeling?
I started modeling by chance, making me self-portraits in the absence of other models such a photographer. I learned to become a model for myself before I became a model for others.
What do you think of the work as a model?
Working as a model is difficult. It takes practice, you have to learn to be comfortable in front of the lens and always you must know what to do, and it's not trivial. If you have certain physical qualities, you must maintain them as such. It is a psychological commitment.
What is your beauty regimen?
Beauty has no rules. Beauty emphasizes a person's liking. The beauty can be the laughter, the voice, or the perfume.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
Sono una persona estremamente determinata. Non mi faccio scoraggiare dai pregiudizi o altro. Credo molto in quello che faccio, mi impegno e ci metto passione.
What are your plans for the future?
In the future I wish I could work as a photographer. I would like to get up in the morning, next to a very important person who loves me, asking me which city I will travel the next day to take the photos.
Go far, discover new places and new people to collaborate with and grow.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
I don’t know I have had a lot of very nice experiences.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Practice, try, experiment. Believe in yourself. We start posing amatorially with many photographers, because everyone has a different way of shooting. Experiment with the poses in front of the mirror, alone, with your friends. Take pictures, look at them. Learn where you go wrong, and try again.
What do you think of the magazine?
I think the Modellen Land Magazineis is a very interesting magazine that gives the opportunity to meet emerging hidden artists. It extrapolates beauty from a wheat field.
