Steph Adams: I'm living my dream already as an Author, Art Director, Model and Business woman
To begin, can you tell us a bit about yourself and how did you get into the modeling world? Do you have any formal training in your background?
Yes I was scouted as a model at the age of 16 years old and was a modelling internationally for ten years professionally, but my first job was for a catalogue when I was 12 years old.
How was your first shooting?
Like anything you do the first time, obviously a bit nervous, but with practice makes it a lot easier.
What is your dream in terms of your career?
I'm living my dream already as an Author, Art Director, Model and Business woman.
What are the biggest challenges and how are you planning for achieving your dream?
You always come up against challenges, but what is key is perserverance, not caring what anyone else thinks and just going for it.
What's the best part of being a model? What do you love the most about your job?
Modelling is only one aspect and there is a whole lot more that happens behind the scenes, where I am interviewing different men and women, travelling, working on my beauty brand etc.
What project(s) are you especially proud of? Why?
Beauty, because it’s something I have always been passionate about to have my own beauty brand. stephadamsbeauty.net
In your opinion, is it fair to alter reality by adjusting images in post-production? How do you feel about that?
Working with Vogue and Harpers Bazaar in London, all the magazines do this. What it comes down to is just advertising.
If we could ask the photographer, what would he say about you and your work?
They have been thrilled to work across such great titles such as yours.
From your experience, what is the key to getting the best out of shooting?
Research, concept and creative. Having the right clothes and fashion helps and then the right photographer, makeup artist and what ever works from there on.
What has been your most successful moment to date in your career so far?
Been called up to speak across SKY NEWS in the lead up to the Royal Wedding, Having our book displayed across Good Morning America and then when “Fashion & Style” hit number 1 in France and best-selling in the US, have been incredible moments for me.
