Interview: Cover Girl Dottir.Model (Denmark/Iceland)


Can you tell us a little about you?

Hey, I’m Dottir, an international freelance model from Denmark/Iceland. I´m 20 years old, started modelling 3 months ago.

I explored nudeart when I tried different styles. I noticed that being nude was so natural and free to me. I felt relaxed in front of the camera, and chose to continue exploring the world of nudeart. I love meeting new people, being social. I’m very interested in human and psychology. I don’t set my expectations very high, instead I want to do my best 110% so when I start doing something I love, nobody’s gonna hold me back from running towards something I want. I don’t set goals, cause honestly I don’t know what my goal is. Instead I go with the flow and say YES instead of NO. I catch the opportunities, no matter if it’s a bit complicated, I do it.


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

I’m actually really happy with myself and my body right now. I’ve had a lot of body shame earlier , but modelling has helped me a lot with my mental health. Going to the gym, is something I want to improve, also because of the energy it gives me, when I’m determined and active.


How did you start modelling?

I was invited to a shoot by a friend, and I just instantly fell in love with it and went for a shoot again the next week. It was really random actually, cause I met the girl who invited me, at a party. Afterwards I started doing TFP shoots every week, and quickly it became more times a week.


What do you think of the work as a model?

I think modelling is amazing! It brings me so much joy when I’m on a shoot. I forget time and space, and my focus is just on my expressions and bodyposes. All the techniques you have to learn becomes an interesting education about the body strength and mental force. It’s also about having the right chemistry with the photographer, feeling beautiful and appreciated. It’s the best job ever!


What is your beauty regimen?

My beauty regimen is first and most important: Drink loads of water! Eating a balanced diet, with not too much of anything is my go to. I’m a vegeterian which makes it easier for me to eat enough greens and I hold back with loads of sugar and fats.

Apart from that, I love guilty pleasures, such as a drinks with alcohol, chocolate, and popcorn! OMG I rarely use makeup, and when I do it’s a mineral powder from Tromborg , always highlighter (obsessed), a shiny eyeshadow and lipgloss, and last but not least, blue mascara!


What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

My personal qualities: My scandinavian nordic Icelandic roots. My capability of putting emotion into my expressions when I’m modelling. I transfer a lot of feelings into what I do, just like I do when I write music. I’m doing both nudeart, fashion and beauty. I get a lot of applause for my bodyshape and my cheekbones. That gives me the opportunity to conquer lots of different styles.

At last I think personality is the most important of all, so I really try to show the best sides of me, and have heard that a lot from photographers, that I have a unique personality. As a model you have to know who you are, and be open to other people.


What are your plans for the future?

In my nearest future I want modelling to be my fulltime job. I want to travel the world with freelance modelling. My next travel is Iceland, and I’m planning on Germany, UK, Norway, Belgium and the Netherlands, at the moment. I’ve just been on Palma de Mallorca with photographer Thomas Holm, amazing trip!

I want to meet new people, talented photographers and models, cultures, create friendships, fun experiences. I also want to be appear in more magazines, and use my voice to speak up about the free body and womens power. Maybe write a book, become a coach to new models. who knows.


What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

One of my favorite experiences is definitely Palma de Mallorca with photographer Thomas Holm and freelance model Rebecca Perry. We had so many fun and beautiful shoots. Also my erotique nude fineart shoots with Benny Rytter in North Jutland have been amazing. His images are storytelling, pure, and all about women empowerment. I’m also really looking forward to Iceland with photographer Woodyard.


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

My advise for those who want to start modelling is that if you think its fun and brings you joy to stand in front the camera, just do it more and more, be curious about all the body techniques and expressions that will improve your modelling skills. Create your own identity from imitating other models, and make your own version. You only learn from watching other models. Find your style, and dare to push your limits. Modelling is a playground, you should feel free and relaxed in every way. It’s okay to be nervous, and it’s also okay to feel beautiful, powerful and sexy, because that is simply what you are. Own it, and don’t let other people get to you. If it makes you happy, you are doing the right thing.


What do you think of the magazine?

I think the magazine is amazing to light up the model industry, and all it’s different sides. It’s a world of creativity, unique personalities and dreams. It gives everybody a chance to use their voice, and that is just beautiful. It also gives the models and photographers to show their work to the world. It creates a huge network of future collaborations. What we need in this industry, to continue doing what we love.
