GlamModel: Jax

Posted by GlamModelz on May 28, 2011 12 Comments

GlamModelz Magazine interviews Glam Model Jax, of Chicago, Illinois. Jax, has a unique style that is all her own. With creative posing, beautiful features and expression, Jax is fast becoming a recognizable face within the Glamour Modeling Industry.

GlamModelz Magazine: How did you get your start in the business? Jax: I have wanted to model ever since I was a little girl. But my parents wanted me to wait until I was older. So on my eighteenth birthday I went to an open casting call at an agency and started my career!!

GlamModelz Magazine: What are your goals personally and with your modeling career? Jax: To continue to build and grow with larger opportunities in advertising and fashion. I would love to work with a lingerie or swimwear company, or with consumer products. I would also like to pursue more opportunities in acting in TV and films!

GlamModelz Magazine: Posing 101: any suggestions to newer models coming into the business?Jax: Practice different poses and see how you look in front of a mirror. Sometimes the most awkward feeling movement looks awesome!!!

GlamModelz Magazine: When working on concepts for upcoming shoots, how much thought or effort do you put into it? Where does your inspiration come from? Jax: A lot of thought in effort goes into what I need to do to achieve the goal of the shoot. How many of my ideas that go into the concept really depends on what the shoot is for. If it is for a commercial job then I am told what they are trying to achieve and it is my job to meet their expectations. If it is a collaborative shoot then I like to talk with everyone and work together to make sure everyone gets what they want from the end product. Once we decide on the goal I try and research and practice how I am going to best convey that in the image.

jax_0019GlamModelz Magazine: Have you had the support of family, friends and significant other in regards to your decisions for your modeling career to date? Jax: I have had a lot of support of my family and friends through all the ups and downs of my career. From getting up in the middle of the night to assist at a sunrise beach shoot, to endless hours driving in cars with me. If I didn’t have the support of my family and friends I wouldn’t be able to have come so far in such a short amount of time. This is a demanding career and you are only as strong as your support system.

GlamModelz Magazine: What are your thoughts on the whole escort issue? Jax:This is a sensitive issue, particularly for photographers and it depends on the situation. I frequently bring someone with me for a variety of reasons: personal safety and comfort, assistance, lending a hand when a stylist isn’t available, etc. I wouldn’t want someone along that wasn’t also able to help.

GlamModelz Magazine: Would you like to see change in the industry from a model’s standpoint? Jax: Yes, I am a petite model and I am curvy and I love that. However it isn’t something that is always well received. I feel there is room for all sizes and shapes in the industry and I would like to change the perception that only tall girls can model!!!!

jax_0001GlamModelz Magazine: What gets you motivated everyday to stay in shape and look your best at all times? Jax: I have always enjoyed working out and continue to do it not just for my modeling career but for myself. Exercise makes me feel and look good and I love it!! That’s what brings me to the gym everyday!!! I love how it makes me feel!!!!

GlamModelz Magazine: What excited you the most when you first started modeling?Jax: The very first time someone wanted to work with me. :) I was beyond excited!!! One of my first shoots I was so excited and wanted it to happen so much that I actually met a photographer under a bridge, in a rough neighborhood in Chicago, in a thunderstorm – just so that he didn’t cancel and not use me. (Jim Jurica note: Jax wasn’t sure if she should mention that the photographer was me?)

GlamModelz Magazine: How do you handle rejection from photographers, agencies and your peers? Jax: I try and look at things as business decisions. If I don’t get something I really want, then something else was meant for me instead. So I try not to take it personally and I try and keep faith that the right things will happen for me at the right time!!

Country Girl

GlamModelz Magazine: The modeling reality TV shows have created quite an interest in modeling these days. Can you offer any advice for those interested in getting their big break? Any tips for models wishing to do it sooner rather than later? Jax: Follow your heart!! It isn’t all a bed of roses and I often tease about how “glamorous” the modeling life is. But if in your heart that is what you want, then follow that dream and don’t give up!! Start small… work hard… and move forward. With hard work, dedication and faith you achieve anything you can dream!

jax_0015GlamModelz Magazine: What do you see yourself doing one, five, ten and twenty years from now? Jax: I see myself continuing modeling and acting into the foreseeable future. I love this industry and I can’t think of anything else I would rather do.

GlamModelz Magazine: It appears to us that most eye candy magazines are fixated on some part of the female anatomy. Tell us what do you think your best assets are? Jax: My eyes. Although I know that isn’t what most eye candy magazines fixate on!! The eyes are a window into the REAL person!!

GlamModelz Magazine: I have noticed you spend a great deal of time maintaining your portfolio on ModelMayhem. Do you feel this is an important factor to your success as a model? Jax: It’s very important to keep your work up to date and fresh!! It gives people a reason to come back for another look, and to show your growth as a model. I think this turns into more opportunities for work.

GlamModelz Magazine: We have noticed you seem to be branching out into other areas in your modeling. Do you have a style or category you really enjoy shooting? Jax: I enjoy it all equally. Every style of modeling provides something different and I like to show that I am capable of all different types of work. That being said, I think I am best known for swimwear/glamour and I do a lot of that.

jax_0007GlamModelz Magazine: You have beautiful, long, blonde hair in every image. Would you ever cut and dye your hair a completely different color and length for a shoot? Jax: I wouldn’t ever say never. But I love my blonde hair it would probably have to be for something really big for me to change it.

GlamModelz Magazine: Your complexion always looks so flawless. Will you share your beauty secrets you use to keep it that way? Jax: I really don’t have any big secrets. I use Demologica products and light moisturizers. I have really just been blessed with a nice complexion.

GlamModelz Magazine: How do you handle imperfections? How important do you feel professional make up is to a model? Jax:Professional makeup is extremely important! I think it gives the end image a more polished look. I also think that by using a MUA you can get different looks that you might not otherwise be able to achieve without. Versatility is key and a makeup artist and hair stylist help achieve that.

GlamModelz Magazine: Your thoughts on TFP or TFCD sessions in general? Jax: I find value in them with the right photographers. I always need updated images for my portfolio. And since my agency and paid work doesn’t usually provide me with images, TF is a great way to get those updates. The key to TF work is to reserve it for professionals!


GlamModelz Magazine: How do you handle the inappropriate offers and sometimes rude individuals when they contact you for a session together?Jax: Unfortunately, inappropriate offers are something that comes with the territory. I usually handle it with a “thanks, but no thanks” kind of response. I think a rude reply would only make things worse.

Housework:  LaundryGlamModelz Magazine: Is modeling your full time job? Jax: Modeling is my only job. I am also a student but modeling is my only source of income. I feel you need to dedicate yourself to one thing to excel.

GlamModelz Magazine: When you’re not modeling, what can we usually find you doing? Jax: You can probably find me at the library doing homework, or relaxing at home watching a movie.

GlamModelz Magazine: What’s the next big step for your modeling career? Jax: Secure bigger commercial campaigns and pursuing more film/TV work.

GlamModelz Magazine: Any final words for our readers and your fans? Jax: I love modeling and this industry in general. I feel blessed to be able to work at something I love so much. I am thankful for all the support from my family, friends and fans. You are all AWESOME and I hope I can always make you proud!! :)
