Where are you from? Where are you based now and do you travel for shoots?

I am Ukrainian. I moved to Prague when I turned 18 and I am still in love with this city. I do travel for shoots, in fact, traveling is the main reason why I love my job.

Who or what inspired you to become a model?

A desire to change myself and become independent, and my partner. He’s the greatest support and inspiration in many ways.

How and when did you start modeling?

About 1.5 years ago I was completely fed up with my job due to a lack of money and self-confidence. But I always wanted to travel, do some art and as I’ve never had a problem with being nude, I decided to try my hand at nude modeling, and, I grew to love it.

What type of modeling do you enjoy the most?

Honestly, any picture taken with an analog camera in B&W is the best for me. But at the moment, I enjoy a lot working in alternative fashion, shibari art and the artistic nude.

What do you look for when deciding to work with a photographer?

Firstly, I look for the shooting reviews and at least a few pictures of the portfolio to make sure the person is actually interested in photography, these are the most important things. Also, the form or style of conversation can be a certain concern for booking.

Which models or other artists currently inspire you?

I mostly get inspired by photographers. I am afraid my list is going to be too long, but there are top 10 of the humans who stole my heart forever after our cooperation:

  1. Egominitrip Photography
  2. Sascha van der Werf
  3. LightRhyme
  4. picturebob
  5. jef_poldervaart
  6. Bil Brown
  7. spencerdeath
  8. jan – leicaportrait
  9. Rafael Dubus
  10. BAASCH

Also, I have two favorite models, whose individual style and intelligence inspires me a lot. Denisa Strakova and Juno LTK, they are a wonderful combination of professionalism and beauty, in my opinion.

What would be your dream shoot?

  1. For the cover of my favorite metal band.
  2. A shibari session with bison on the seaside, taken by analog camera in B&W!

How important is social media in your success?

In general, social media has a very powerful impact on a successful career in this industry and it has helped my work as well. A large account on Instagram attracts interest and gets more bookings by promoting your portfolio. However, for me, it’s still a challenge to stay active on social media as I’m not a sociable person at all.

What else do you like to do outside of modeling?

I love being alone, sounds weird, but I truly enjoy spending some time by myself, reading books or dreaming about future plans and ideas. I wish I had more time for it. Drawing is the best therapy for me and takes a big part of my life.

Despite the fact that I travel for shoots a lot, traveling somewhere with my partner is pure happiness for me.

I am crazy about tattooing and shibari art. I like learning the history, different techniques, and styles of these incredibly beautiful arts. Since they both need practice, I am going to mainly focus on it this year to get closer to my old dream.

What’s the best career advice you can give to new models?

Double-check the person you’re going to work with. Do only what you like to do, what gives you power and inspiration. Ask/accept/analyze constructive criticism and advice from professionals/the dearest humans and ignore other people’s opinion.

Love and respect yourself and other people. Practice posing.
