Alright, now for the interview! Firstly Bryan, how would you best describe yourself?
Model

Our readers would love to get to know you more Bryan. Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far.
Started modelling at the age of 3 and loved it ever since. Mainly fashion based shoots, but also Catwalk and acting. Besides modelling, I am very active with sports such as: Soccer, Taekwondo, Skate- and snowboarding, Freerunning...

What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field Bryan?
I hope to continue modelling and acting when growing up. To become a professional in the field, travel the world and have fun!

How do you communicate with people Bryan? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
For now, my mom does the all the communication. I am sure patient, friendly, social and flexible. 

If you had to do it over again, what would you change Bryan?
I would have had an Afro much sooner. And I would not work for one agent exclusively but through different agencies for the kids modelling.

Who is your hero Bryan, and how have they helped you get to where you are?
I would have to say, my mom, as she fully supports me in whatever it is I want to do or achieve. 

How important are creative education courses Bryan? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful?
Creative education is important. It gives you more confidence, and you learn things that are useful when working on a job. I have done some theatre lessons, acting class and Catwalk training. 

Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry?
The first thing you need to do is to get good a good professional portfolio. Finding photographers who work on TFP (Time For Print) base is a good way to start. You get some experience an material for your portfolio without it costing a fortune. For Dutch kids, I advise becoming a member of "Kunstkinderen", a group that helps models and actors to get started.
