Featured Model: Bram Schuurman



"For us, modeling education is not important. I think when he likes to do it and has fun, its okay for me, but no pressure. Wen he gets older and wants to do some modelling education, of course, I will support him."

Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognised fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world.Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them- their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.

Months ago, we invited Bram's mother to be featured, and she submitted her entry for Bram. There was a miscommunication and we followed up after a few months as we were reminded how amazing Bram is as a young model. It would be a shame if the world would not see how amazing he is. Thank you Els for the entry and we both love you.

Tell us about yourself and your (son/daughter). How did he/she get her interest in modelling and as a parent, how did you talk to her/him?

My name is Els; I am a mother of 3 stunning boys. When my eldest son was a one-year-old lot of people said that I should contact a model agent for him ad he was always so cute on pics (I think every mum thinks that about their kids :-) ) But I did, and he had several shoots. When I was pregnant again, I quit with the modelling. When my second son was about seven years old, he saw the work of his older brother and said "mam, I want that too", so we went again to the agent, and they wanted him but also Bram (he was about five years). Bram had a look when the photographer of the agent was taking pics of his brother, and he said.... Yess, that's cool, I can do that :-) So that's how all began.

How important is modelling education: Has he/she attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies has he/she taken?

For us, modeling education is not important. I think when he likes to do it and has fun, its okay for me, but no pressure. Wen he gets older and wants to do some modelling education, of course, I will support him.

What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?

Of course, you have to be physical fit but its not necessary to have a sixpack, I think its much more important that your child has patience as he/she must wait a lot most of the times.

What do you know about the advertisement industry, advertising psychology, and photography?

About the ad industry and advertising psychology, I do not know very much. Photography.... well during the years I have seen of course lots of different styles, and of course I see lots of differences. Not only because of the budget but also not every photographer can make great pictures of kids. Also, the photographer has to be patient and the more they want, the less they get :-)

How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?

I think I am open minded and social person. I am not very patient according to mu husband :-) But I am friendly and try to raise my children also to be a kind, social and friendly person

Does he/she eat nutritiously? How do you balance his/her studies and modelling career?

We eat very healthily at home because we are all sports people, so we want to stay fit. Of course, the kids also eat now and then candy, chips or cookies, but not too much. All the kids go to school; sometimes Bram needs to go home a little early for a shoot and when he needs a day off I can contact the Headmaster, and he will check if it is possible as long as he is doing well at school



What is his/her dream role as a model? What do you aspire for him/her?

He is very young and does not really have any dreams as a model, he is just having fun :-) For me as a mom, I hope he will do this work for a long time as I think he is very talented but as I said before, only when he enjoys doing modeling as that is the most important thing !

Does he/she have any limitations? How do you define her boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?

Yes he has, he does not want to model underwear and maybe with some anymals. I always ask him first of he likes to make the request before I say yes to the agent



State his/her availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part-time? Any hours?

My limitation is only that I don't want him to model naked and I also check if the compensation is correct for the job

State his/her availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part-time? Any hours?

Yes we will travel for a job (if compensated of course) and no he can not work fulltime as he is a student

As a parent, what pieces of advice could you give to the parents reading this?

As a parent, what pieces of advice could you give to the parents reading this?

I would like to say to all parents, please let your child be a child and when he/she does not like it anymore, stop modelling, your child needs to have fun during the shoots :-)

For the young model: Tell us your most memorable experience in modelling so far?

TV Commercial NIK&NIK fashion, that was awesome
