My first modeling experience was a test shoot arranged by my first agency Karin Models with an American photographer called Ernest Collins, who had worked with clients as L’Oreal, Harper’s Bazaar Magazine and is known for bringing out the best in models.
The intention of the shoot was to build up my portfolio so I could meet with clients. I didn’t know what to do at first and felt very uncomfortable. Luckily the photographer was very patient with me and I ended up with some pretty cool pictures.
Straight after this shoot I got booked for Vogue and the Benetton campaign. This was the beginning of my modeling career!
