Interview: Model léon Dony (France)

30 Aug 2019

What can you tell us about yourself?

Hello, my name is Leon. I have been a French model in an agency since 2018. Sport, self-development through learning new skills, fashion are my real passions.

 

If you could change any of yourself, what would it be?

If I could change anything about myself, I think it would be the fact that I am too much of a perfectionist.

 

What are your personal qualities that set you apart from others?

I think that my own qualities that distinguish me from others are the fact that I remain myself during my shootings and in life in general, I remain natural, I am also creative so I do not hesitate to share my different ideas.

 

How did you start being a model?

I started to be a model by chance, following some pictures taken by a friend. Then, as the fact of creating, innovating, and sublimating a photo pleased me, I continued and persevered by contacting several photographers, then later several agencies.

 

What are your best experiences so far?

Since 2017, I have kept in mind several experiences that have been really very significant from a human perspective. First of all, I will say that my very first shooting was the key to my overall motivation. Indeed, for my first shooting I contacted a fashion photographer with whom I was able to shoot twice in total, and who became a friend for me afterwards. It was an experience that touched me because this person advised me, helped me during my very first shooting and afterwards.

Then, I will say that the meeting during my first shooting in collaboration with a couturier and photographer just touched me, because it was an extraordinary experience for me as much on the level of the creations that I was able to wear for him as on the human level, relational.

All the people who have marked me, such as another photographer with whom creativity, relationships, human chemistry, as well as people I have met and discussed with, are among my best experiences.

 

What do you think of your work as a model?

I think that this work is first of all a work that has many advantages. Indeed, this profession allows us to develop both in terms of personal development through the various meetings and readings we can read, as well as in terms of sport, thanks to the time we have available, and in terms of culture, thanks to the many travel opportunities. However, it is a profession that requires rigour, determination and questioning every day.

 

How do you see beauty?

Beauty, I think, is a very abstract concept. Beauty for me brings together several aspects.

First, the set of good deeds we can do to inspire the world.

Secondly, beauty is also the set of things that surrounds us.

Finally, the last aspect of beauty is the culture of the physical through sport, a healthy lifestyle.

 

What are your plans for the future?

For the future, I would say that several projects are being considered, such as:

Inspire the world by showing that "all dreams are achievable when we have no limits in life and an unwavering belief in our vision".

Work as an international model in the four corners of the world

Write a personal development book

 

Do you have any advice for people who would like to start in this environment?

If I could give advice to people who would like to start in this environment, would be: "believe in yourself, work hard by taking massive actions every day, and have an unwavering vision for your goal. »

 

What do you think of the magazine "Modellenland"?

I think that the magazine "Modellenland" is a great idea that has been created, because it allows interesting people to inspire the world with their work and their backgrounds. And also, to be able to create inspiring lives.
