Interview: Model Astrid Gaardsdal (Denmark)


Can you tell us a little about you?

Hey my name is Astrid, I am 22 year of age and I currently live in Aarhus. Originally I was born and raised on the country side at a farm with my parents and three smaller siblings. Growing up on a farm with a big family, means that I have always been down to earth to those I’m surrounded. It has always been a natural thing for me to firstly take care of others and then take care of myself. Lastly, living by my mother’s rule, “never take anything for granted” - no matter what.

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

A few years back I could make a long list of what I wanted to change about myself. This was due to the fact that I always wanted to reach the goal of becoming “perfect”. This has changed in recent years, which has meant that I have worked hard on my self-acceptance and development. If I had to change something about myself, it would be to care less about what other people think and care more about what I think and vouch on my own view.

How did you start modelling?

It all started when a student of photography discovered me on Instagram. He invited me to be a model in a project that he had been assigned. It was a big desire for me to try modeling, so I didn’t think twice and became a part of if photography project.

What do you think of the work as a model?

I would far from call myself a model, or anything close to it. I do not feel entitled to the title “model”. For me personally, it was about getting out of my comfort zone, due to the fact that I don’t see myself as a thin, tall and handsome girl who can come close to becoming a real model. Though I love being in front of a camera and working with professional and amazing people like @ page7photos and @kathera. However, in the real essence of all this, I must say it is sometimes tough to be active all the time, and feel the need to "deliver" the perfect image of oneself. Having faced that truth - I do LOVE modeling! I really do.

What is your beauty regimen?

The most important thing is to be happy with your own body, which is why I spend a lot of time exercising, to keep myself physically and mentally strong. I therefore also make sure to eat and drink healthy. In addition, it is important for me to be surrounded by people and surroundings that make me happy. Life is too short to be surrounded by negative surroundings.

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

I am a very positive and honest person who is not afraid to share out my life stories, for better or worse. It makes me happy to help people, and if they can learn something from my life experience, it's worth everything.

What are your plans for the future?

My plan for the future is to explore my own boundaries, learn more about myself, meet a lot of new exciting people and experience new parts of the world. And of course, become more successful with my passion of life; namely the food industry.

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

As a “model”, it is clear to me that it has been a wonderful experience to have has the opportunity to meet a lot of talented people like Khatera (Makeup artist Hairstylist) and Thomas (Photographer), as it is wildly inspiring to experience people who are extremely passionate about their “craftsmanship”. They have helped me on a personal level and given me opportunities that has been outside my comfort zone, which I am forever thankful for.

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

Jump into it, but remember your own values and stick to them. If something is wanted by you that you do not want to do, then do not do it. Otherwise go for it, reach out for what you want, work hard and be passionate about it, as it rarely comes by itself.

What do you think of the magazine?

I've only just heard of Modelland, but I wish I had heard of it way sooner! I love the fact that it gives people in the profession such as models and photographers the opportunity to show off their "works of art", and thereby help to inspire others in a different and creative way.
