Let me introduce you to an aspiring model, Heather Kobza. She is a 37 year old woman who grew up in the hills of Kentucky. She says she will always be a country girl at heart, those are her roots. She decided to move to Florida three years ago and loves being so close to the ocean, she also has four degrees, one as a preschool teacher which she did for eight years. She decided to compete in a national modeling contest, which she placed third out of ten different counties on the runway. After that she was offered a one year modelling contract with a Florida\Miami modeling agency, she is also a part of models with a cause with Tim Bear. The purpose of model with a cause is to show the strength these women have dealing with chronic illnesses. Although her career in the modeling world is relatively new she has been in two TV commercials.
She recently did a photo shoot with Tim Bear for models with a cause, shot in Florida. She loved doing the photoshoot at the beach and in the ocean. Behind the scene of a photoshoot is something a lot of regular people don’t get to see, here is a glimpse. It’s very fast pace, touch ups between shots, changing outfits frequently, most important there is time to laugh and joke around. Heather says you just have to have fun and enjoy the experience. She enjoyed her photoshoot with Tim Bear, he made it fun and she felt very comfortable.
As for her own personnel style she has a few. She likes the hippie look, bohemian, vintage, country, and beach styles. She says she feels more comfy in a pair of cut-off jeans, t-shirt, and barefoot on the beach. She also loves wearing gowns with high heels for a sexier look. I asked her if she had any style muses, and she said her muses are Kate Moss and Cher. She also has a few favourite designers, Guess, Calvin Klein, and express. Her favourite fashion magazine is Vogue; she loves their runway looks and the diversity of styles. Her current designer piece she is loving right now is Anuschka purses; they are hand painted on the leather.
In the next five years she hopes to get a role in a movie, she would also love to walk the runways and be a part of fashion week one day. I always wonder if someone had the choice would they live anywhere else, she says she is satisfied living in Florida. She was born to have her toes in the sand.
