Interview: Model Nikola Szczurková (Czech republic)


Can you tell us a little about you?

Right now I am a 27 years old girl named Nikol, who finished her studies (International relations and diplomacy), works as a photomodel, marketing specialist and fitness instructor. Some of you might know me as moveNmodel, which characterises me (I think) pretty well. What does it mean? This nickname should have been a little bit rebellious (so am I), inspired by rock’n’roll. Nine years ago it kind of happened - I have started to work as a photomodel, but my other passion has always been movement. I love to dance. Basically, I am into any kind of sport. That's why I have this alias. What else can I say? I love nature, travelling, fun and food. Also - I am addicted to oat milk latte, so coffee is my passion. But, to be honest, my biggest passion is to get a little sparkle in the lives of people around me. I love to surprise and help others.


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

Few years back I would probably give you a huge list of things to change. But right now, since I went through a lot, with every single month or a year - I am more and more happy with who I am. So instead, I started to work on accepting myself for who I really am. It is still gonna take some time - but it is definitely worth the hard work.


How did you start modelling?

The way I started was kind of spontaneous, back when I was around 18 years old I went through a toxic relationship where I was banned from doing anything I loved. Right after I just wanted to fulfil my dreams and I just started through the website fotopatracka.cz. At first I just wanted to do some photos for my CV etc., so I found a photographer on TFP basis to do my very first shots. I didn't mean to start modelling, but when I uploaded those photos online - it kind of started on its way and here we are right now.


What do you think of the work as a model?

Personally? I love it. I know it looks kind of easy work to do, but it is not at all. Imagine you have to stay in the position for a long time, you have to be creative on your own, plus you need to take care of your body really well. On the other hand - it motivates me to stay who I am. I can express my inner feelings through the working process. In front of the camera I can show off - be who I really am, just being myself - a bit crazy, naked, punkish or whatever mood I want. Since I am a gemini, movenmodel is just one of my personalities somewhere inside - the creative alter ego.


What is your beauty regimen?

I start early in the morning with my skincare routine and lots of food supplements. Healthy food, lots of water and lots of sports. As I already mentioned, I work as fitness instructors here in Prague, so I dance Zumba and Les Mills Sh’bam with my divas. I also do yoga and lots of stretching, especially due to the lack of magnesium in my body. During my free time (I do not have much of it) I love to do gym routines. On top of it I have just started with running.

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

I feel that every human being is special in their own way. There is literally nobody the same as you. Everybody has different qualities and there is nothing perfect, also nothing bad. I love to get crazy during the photosession. Does not matter in which way (happy, sexy, sad or whatever else). I always try to do my best. There is no photoshoot I finish just to be done, I want every photoshoot to be perfect - so I try to do my best every single time. I love to learn new stuff - with every week I discover new things or hobbies to try out.


What are your plans for the future?

I used to have many plans, but as I get older, with all the respect for life - I realised it is not suitable to make any plans for life, in general. Some things are not possible to plan, they just happen - you have to face it whether you are ready or not. Now I am trying to stay right here - right now. But still, I have many dreams to fulfil - I want to travel the world, probably just live and dance through life, enjoy every day like it was the last one. Every time I wake up in the morning I try to be the best version of myself and with every day I want to learn something new. So, for the modelling part, I want to photoshoot as much as I am able to, until it is possible. Last year taught me so much, but now I feel kind of reborn, stronger and even more passionate to create art. Since I am a caffeine addict creature, I am planning to start Buy Me a coffee platform, plus resuscitate my website (movenmodel.com) which died last year with me and my life changing year.


What are some of your favourite experiences so far?

With every single photoshoot I learnt something new. So I am thankful for all the photo collaborations I had in my life. But I would always end up thinking about the photo workshop in Croatia (by Art of Light, September 2022) which was pretty special to me. I got to know wonderful people there and after such a long time I felt happy and free. So, the whole workshop team from Croatia will stay in my heart forever. Also, every crazy collab with eccentric makeup and clothes will never disappear. I would like to thank everybody who supported me or me during this path in any way.


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

If it is your dream - just be yourself and go go go! There is literally nothing that could stop you (only your own mind), just try it out and you will see!


What do you think of the magazine?

I appreciate the way it promotes photo models and photographers from all over the world. To me, it connects people who would never know about each other if it was not for this magazine.
