Lena, why modelling?
First and foremost, it’s fun. I’ve always been told I should be modelling because I have a good body – especially very long legs. The first time I actually did modelling was because of a friend who’s a photographer. Another reason are the results. It is great to get some beautiful shots and it would be amazing to be discovered in the future.
What do you love most about modelling?
The nice photos. When modelling you have the possibility to change yourself, become somebody else and see another side of you. Also you can outgrow your normal personality.
What’s been the highlight of your career so far?
I did a photoshoot for Pett Extra Long Sizes. The photos are displayed in the store and used to be on their homepage.
Tell us about some of your recent shoots.
Besides the Photoshoot for Pett, I did a levitation shooting which was so much fun. Also I did several fashion shootings, that I enjoyed and of cause some personal shoots with my sister or partner but those are kept private.
Which photographers in the industry do you most enjoy working with?
I haven’t been booked that often, but I really like working with Lutz Mahnhardt.
Define your personal style.
My style is very versatile since I dress the way I feel and adjust my style to the occassions. So when I am home I like it comfy but when I go out, I like to dress up.
Who would you say is your 'style muse'?
I do not have that one certain muse. I just like to go shopping with friends and try new stuff.
Your favourite designer is… ?
No one. I don’t care much about designer fashion or labels, I rather care about the clothing’s look and how it feels wearing them.
Neither. I do not read fashion magazines.
Is there any particular designer piece you are crushing on right now?
What do you hope to be doing in the next 5 years?
I hope to be modeling more. Maybe to be discovered for my long legs and model for tight companies or something similar. Maybe also doing some runway.
I would really love to visit the States, I’ve never been there.
