I'm very caring, and I'm always grateful for everything that has happened to me along the way of completing my goals. I work with others, and I am always determined.
Alanisa, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I wanted to continue to get published and as well to continue to care for people. I started as a model from a friend who is a photographer, at that point he was starting. I shot with him twice, and then I had other photographers who are interested, and my career went off from there.
Who is your inspiration in life Alanisa? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration is my son and my family. With them, I'm always striving to make others happy, be a better person, and to always better myself.
We all make mistakes Alanisa; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
If you don't like the photos, tell the photographer so you can get new takes. I found out that you're not going to like every photo of yourself taken but if you think you could do a pose differently or position in a different way, speak up.
Alanisa, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
To prioritise each client, I do two to three shots per photographer in the pose I am in and then look at the next photographer or listen to their needs to advise that could better us both.
Please tell us Alanisa, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
As pointing us very important, there are times you have to bend and try to become flexible as well, and I've had to do this several times to get the photos I wanted, so you have to remember the pain is worth it and to be determined.
Alanisa, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
At a shoot I photographer wanted me to do a certain pose, but I had mentioned how I thought the one I had an idea of was better or would look nicer so I voiced my opinion and we had done my pose, and he had agreed with the way of my work.
Alanisa, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest moment was my first publication in MyAltMagazine, I got a text from a photographer I had worked with, and he said â€œyour published , and at first I couldn't believe it I was so in shock. At that time I didn't know he was putting submissions in.
Alanisa, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
To be creative means to voice your opinion and to move your body in different ways. When I started artistic nudes, I was excited how the photos came out because you can see the form and tone of my body and that was the focus, what was difficult was trying to learn the poses and to become naked in front of someone.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
I would tell them patience is everything, and don't let someone rush you or have someone push you. Also if you need help or advice, it doesn't hurt to ask.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I like to be creative and model anything; I'm not looking for anything particular.
