Interview: Model Petra Thürme (Austria)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Petra, I'm 36 years old and I'm from Austria, near Vienna. I am the proud mother of an 11 year old daughter. Professionally, I am very versatile on the road, mainly I work as a clerk in a real estate office, otherwise I'm modding a lot by the way and am traveling at several agencies as a fair hostess or advertising figure. My hobbys are dancing, reading, swimming and walking with friends.
How did you start modeling?
I came to modeling by accident about 6 years ago. Really wanted to have nice pictures of me made for my former ex boyfriend and so then came one into the other. The photographer was immediately impressed by my charisma in front of the camera and on recommendation came more and more orders. At first I was very shy and insecure, but the more experiences I could gain, the more posesicherer and more open I became.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would not want to change anything, I like myself the way I am
What do you think of the work as a model?
It's definitely a tough job that requires a lot of body control and concentration. But I enjoy it a lot and the reward is the beautiful pictures of one.
What is you beauty regimen?
You should take good care of your body, eat well, take care of yourself and exercise sports very important.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
Would say: my charisma
What are your plans for the future?
I would like to have more children, own a large house with a garden and enjoy traveling and discovering new things.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
It's very simple: The birth of my daughter, because she was born exactly on Mother's Day and that was my best present. And that I finally got to know the love of my life after a long time.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
In any case, always pay close attention, because there are many black sheep among the photographers who take advantage of the naivety of the young girls. Always be well informed in advance about the photographer before accepting the job. Get information from the agencies as well.
What do you think of the magazine? I find very interesting, serious and insightful.
