"Since I always loved art and beauty, it was natural that fashion came to my mind as an expression."

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.

How did you get to where you are now in your career?

I decided to start to follow my passion and my dream. I draw, paint and came to photography late but with a sense that took years to develop. Since I always loved art and beauty, it was natural that fashion came to my mind as an expression.

What is your opinion on modeling education?

I learnt by myself and by following workshops and the teaching of professionals. I believe that practising is the best school.

What person has been your inspiration in life? Who is your hero?

Patrick Demarchelier, Richard Avedon, Peter Lindbergh, Steven meisel or Mario Testino. That is making great portrait. For the timeless pictures Willy Ronis, Robert Doisneau. I like to creat scenes and ambiances to express atmospheres, like in movies. To me, nobody was able to accomplish it as Helmut Newton did, he was a Master, the King, and Ellen Von Unwerth is the Queen.

Do you feel like you've met your goals?

No, not now.

If you had to do it over again, what would you change?

Nothing, I think everything is linked.

Do you have any tips?

Follow your dreams!

How do you stay inspired?

By looking at artworks and by watching fashion.

What photography related things do you recommend?

Learn how to use the natural light and most of all master the art of catching the "special moment". This instant when the eyes of your model "tell" you something.

How can people reach you for a job?

I can be reached at http://www.whf-photography.com/.

What's your favourite camera?

Canon 5DsR.

What is your most memorable experience so far?

Every time I work with a new team it becomes a special moment.. you meet new people and it is always interesting.
