GlamModelz Magazine: What excited you the most when you first started modeling? Kristen: Being in front of a camera is like a performance. I’m an actress at heart so it comes naturally. What excited me the most was the end results, transforming into a timeless memory such as a photograph.
GlamModelz Magazine: Do you feel that flexibility and diversity are important to a model’s portfolio? Kristen: Most definitely, I’ve been scarey with white contacts and fangs, I’ve shot in freezing temperatures in just a bikini. I’ve had tons of different hair colors and styles, and even shot in a graveyard. I have pictures in my portfolio that don’t even look like me. Diversity shows you can adapt to anything and be comfortable in your skin or out.
GlamModelz Magazine: If you had one thing to tell a model just entering the industry what would that be? Kristen: Observe, network, transform, get inspired and never give up!
GlamModelz Magazine: Kristen, due to the current state of the economy in the U.S. have you noticed any major changes in the industry within your geographical area? Kristen: Fortunately no, in my area my look is in demand. Its easy to stay busy when you have a work ethic like mine and can travel if needed, so it makes my job steady.
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 brake? Any Tips for models wishing to do it sooner rather than later? Kristen: My best advice is to never sell out. I have been offered many reality shows but turned them down because they have a habit of contouring who you really are for rating purposes. Do your own thing, be your own boss and always stay in control of who you are and what you want to grow into.
GlamModelz Magazine: When reviewing photographers online portfolio’s, what grabs your attention? What type of images gets you in the mood to shoot with them? Kristen: Before I work with a photographer I want to see some kind of art piece, like a picture you could turn into a painting, I want to feel free during the shoot and be creative, I’m looking for someone who embraces the out of norm, and turns our shoot into masterpieces.
GlamModelz Magazine: Do you have any hobbies or special interests that you feel contribute to your success in modeling and why do you feel they are a contributing to achieve your goals? Kristen: Yes I love acting, and singing, and I have an eye for style and art. It definitely helps me in my career because you have to be comfortable being someone else at times and trying things that would normally scare you.
