Model Q&A: Mary Jane X

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

I am originally from Spain but I grew up in Texas. I love traveling and would travel for modeling jobs if I had the opportunity.

Who or what inspired you to become a model?

I made up my mind at the age of fifteen. I knew I wanted to be a model but I always thought I was too short. It’s funny because I went on this date with a guy and while we were in line waiting at the movies he mentioned to me that I pose. He said I stand there like I’m waiting for someone to take my picture. From the moment on I knew he was right because my subconscious was clearly telling the world I was born to do this!

Model: Mary Jane X; Photographer: Earl Stokes

How and when did you start modeling? 

I started modeling in June 2019. My friend needed someone to model at a studio and he asked me if I was interested. I said, “what the heck, I’ll try it out!” Needless to say, after I saw the pictures from the shoot I posted them on my social media and got instant attention. That’s when I decided to join Model Mayhem and from there I got in contact with local photographers in Dallas.

What type of modeling do you enjoy the most? 

I started with street photography, but I enjoy doing fashion, boudoir, and fine art. I enjoy the occasional artistic shoot that involves body painting, and I would love to try Shibari art someday!

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

I look for creativity, originality, and honesty. I think it’s important to build a strong relationship with a photographer so that you both know that you’ll create some dope content.

Which models or other artists currently inspire you? 

Honestly, Instagram and the local Facebook groups with other like-minded people have inspired me.

What would be your dream shoot? 

It would have to be a bikini shoot on the beach on Phi Phi Island in Thailand!

How important is social media in your success?

It’s very important because it’s all up to YOU to promote yourself and show the world just what you got, regardless of the hate, criticism, and your self-confidence.

What else do you like to do outside of modeling?

I love singing (when no one else is around) but I absolutely love traveling! I believe that once you step out of your comfort zone and see the world with your eyes it’s the best thing you can do. You meet people from all walks of life and that they are just human like you are. The world is beautiful and I truly believe that we are here to experience the love and beauty that mother nature intended for everyone to enjoy.

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

My advice to anyone who wants to try out modeling is to just do it! I think it’s important to decide your limits and what you will or will not do. However, if you don’t feel like stepping outside your comfort level for a little bit you won’t know what you can actually accomplish. The more you try and feel out different genres the more you will definitely be surprised about yourself. Also, don’t take everything too seriously because it will show in the pictures, all you gotta do is relax and have a good time!
