Interview: Model Peiyun Xue (Netherlands)

18 Jun 2020

Can you tell us a little about you?

My name is Peiyun, I’m 29 years old and I live in Maastricht. I was born in the Netherlands and my roots are Chinese. Besides modeling, I’m a classical pianist and a piano teacher. I love art, culinary and music!

 

If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?

I’m a high sensitive person and an overthinker. I wish i could worry less.

 

How did you start modelling?

After I binge watched America’s Next Top Model I decided to register for a photo shoot.

I was a very shy girl and I thought this was a good way to challenge myself.

 

What do you think of the work as a model?

It can be very exhausting because when i leave for a photoshoot, I spend so much time traveling. A lot of time goes to make-up so I have to wait a lot. Some poses can be painful and you have to stay focused and positive with all weather conditions. It can be tough but if you see the results it’s totally worth it. The process is in my opinion more important than the result. What I really like about modeling is that you meet talented people and you share the same passion.

 

What is your beauty regimen?

I love to drink tea and my skin looks better if I sleep well. I also enjoy walking in the nature. It helps me to relax and it is good for my body and I rarely eat junkfood because i don’t like it, it makes me feel disgusted.

 

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

I am not easily satisfied and i know what I want and stand for. It is important for myself that I do something I like and the most important thing in my life is expressing my emotions through art. I think that I have a good balance between mind and intuition. (maybe that's because I'm a musician)

 

What are your plans for the future?

I will continue with photo shoots and collaborate with awesome designers and photographers. Maybe I will try different styles but my main focus will be art photo shoots. I hope I can travel abroad and discover beautiful abandoned locations for amazing photo’s. But first we have to wait until corona-crisis over.

 

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

That’s an difficult question because I have many favorite experiences.

One of my favorite photo shoots were  with Art Photo Projects.

They are extremely talented and they spend so much time and effort for props and styling. I have learned so much from them and a lot of opportunities came to me.

Another experience was from a model job, it was a commercial photo-and video shoot for an International hair brand. We worked with a very big team with professional models. It was so awesome!

 

Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?

Invest in your portfolio, be critical and go for quality!

 

What do you think of the magazine?

Wonderful! This is a great place to gain more exposure. The photo’s in the magazine are very good and I’m immediately attracted to the website. I hope more people will recognize me through your website!
