Interview: Model Natalia (Belgium)
Can you tell us something about you?
Hiiii! I'm Natalia and I'm almost 26 years old. I am originally from Poland but raised here in Belgium. So I am multilingual. I definitely want to thank my parents for that because most of them forget their origins but thanks to them I can now speak many languages. I'm a quiet person until you get to know me
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would really like to have a nose operation done and my breasts. Those two things make me quite insecure
What are your good qualities, and your less good ones?
Uhm that I actually don't have a bad side and even though I'm only 1m58 (less good quality) but I look very tall in photos. I also adapt very quickly to the situation. I used to study photography myself and I am quite artistic, so I come up with a lot of ideas during the shoots
How did you get started as a model?
I started during Corona. I work in the hospitality industry so I didn't really have much work at the time since everything was closed. I was already a bit busy with insta at the time, but never thought I would go in that direction. In the beginning it was quite getting used to everything, but now it goes very smoothly
What do you think of working as a model?
It's more of a hobby than work but I'm not going to lie it can be quite tiring sometimes. Especially if you and the photographer have completely different vision and cannot come to the conclusion.
What is your beauty regimen?
Confidence is the strongest point I've learned in my years of shooting. Without self-confidence you don't glow and you can see that very quickly In the photos. Your gaze quickly becomes vague. Can still be nice pictures but there will be no low point.
What are your plans for the future?
Moving abroad, seeing the world, meeting different cultures and people.
What are some of your favorite experiences to date?
I have met a lot of lovely people thanks to shooting, most of them have already become family to me. I have also been able to rise and see quite a lot thanks to it. In general, all moments are my favorites, I am very grateful for that.
What would you still like to do as a model?
I would really like to shoot more abroad and really create a job.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start as a model?
Be yourself. Don't try to conform to the photographer's ideas against your will. You are you and you are unique. You also don't have to be able to work with every photographer. Of course everyone is different and one will go well and the other will not. Also very important it is not that if you don't have beautiful pictures from 1 photographer that you are ugly. Others can probably determine your beauty,
What do you think of the Model Land Magazine?
I really think it's a very nice magazine that shows a lot of models from a different perspective. You can also give very honest answers that they respect.
