"We both hope to get the opportunity to meet and work with many amazing people as well as the opportunity to represent some of the greatest names in the fashion industry."
Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise 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.
Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in modelling as a career?
Both kids are very outgoing, very personable, and are very comfortable being in front of the camera. What attracts them to the modeling industry is the fashion. Seeing models dressed in the latest (as well as upcoming) fashions is very appealing. They would both love the opportunity to be the one featured in a magazine or walking down a runway.
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
Neither have taken modeling courses but were first introduced to modeling when they participated in Fox Models Live event in San Diego this year. They had a quick class on how to walk the runway from Karen Lee as well as how to dress for a live event.
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
Modeling has evolved over the years and neither believe that there is one thing in particular that makes someone "fit" to be a model. Models now come in all different sizes with so many unique looks. Having the "looks" it takes to be a model is accomplished by many, it's having the right personality to go along with those looks that makes a great model.
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
To not only inspire people through pictures but to hopefully get the opportunity to meet them in person whether it be on a location or out in the general public. We both hope to get the opportunity to meet and work with many amazing people as well as the opportunity to represent some of the greatest names in the fashion industry.
What do you know about the advertisement industry, advertising psychology and photography?
Being that we are both just beginning to learn about the industry we know that there are many details that go into making a successful advertising campaign. Everything from the models to the location of the shoot to the quality of the photographs are extremely important. A great photographer and a great subject in the right setting can tell a story without ever saying a word.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
Both are very polite, very attentive, very respectful and respect a clients requirements as long as it's within reason. Both are teenagers.
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
Both are very healthy and do exercise regularly. Being an athlete Blake trains 4 days a week and Makenzie 3 or 4 days a week.
What is your dream role as a model?
To walk many runways throughout the world as well as be featured in as many of the top Fashion magazines.
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
Being teenagers neither would put themselves in a position where they felt uncomfortable. Nothing too risqué. As for the boundaries it comes down to protecting your image and not putting yourself in a position where others begin questioning who you really are.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
Makenzie would be available to work full-time including travel. Blake would be limited due to school but would consider home schooling if his career took off.
Tell us your most memorable experience:
With our only experience being Fox Models Live event we would both have to say it was a great experience. Hearing the stories told by those in the industry and getting to meet Karen Lee was really cool.
