I have had to practice my knowledge and skills in the marketing agency "Crystal" and local newspaper office. I take part in different scientific and intellectual competitions. For example, scientific conferences, social advertising contests, political discussions, etc.
I am a sportsman. I play beach and classic volleyball. I take part in competitions where I test myself and strive for a victory over rivals and me either. In addition to this, I do fitness as well to keep fit and stay in good shape. It helps me in modelling and everyday life.
I love dancing (contemporary currently). I am a creative person who does music, poetry. I love photographing that is why I started my career as a photo model. I can express myself in various ways because I am a comprehensive person who extremely adores any activity or movement.
I am keen on travelling and nature. I love getting new emotions and experiences. I constantly develop my character aspects that make me stronger.
I have a lot of dreams and goals. I tend to a better life that will make me be in the seventh heaven. I always fight for my future, for my happiness, for my freedom.
Our readers would love to get to know you more DANIIL. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I am inclined to believe that I am a peculiar person. I always stay out in the crowd because I try to show me sincere and real. My characteristic is the next phrase "Unstoppable Man on Fire."
I am a very ambitious man who tends to achieve all the goals. I can overcome any circumstances, life troubles and its negative consequences. Hence, I become much stronger, more confident and unbreakable. I am proud of any accomplishment!
I am a real man who desires to be a good leader and dominate in some spheres. I think I have something special for the community.
I am a Sagittarius. Fire is my element; it is inside of me. I am always burning, I am alive that is why I can not live without movement and activities. I have charisma and can influence people.
DANIIL, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I aspire to grow an awesome person as outside as inside. I want to develop my personality and start inspiring people by my example.
My passion is a photo because it is a wonderful art where I can realize myself and implement my vision and sight. Also, I adore being close to nature because it is an important element of me. I cannot exist without it because I find inspiration and strength there.
Honestly, it was unexpected for me to try as a model. Many people said that I needed to have an attempt due to my appearance and creativeness. And I dared to do it.
One day I found a photographer on Instagram who was seeking for fitness model for free. Why not? And I tried to be a photo model. It was difficult, but I did a good job! I liked it so much, and the process started...
Who is your inspiration in life DANIIL? How do you keep inspired?
I love being inspired by people who achieve unbelievable goals, particularly in sports. I love Maria Sharapova because she is a great athlete who struggles for her career. She is a real fighter and me either. We are similar a little bit. I love her behaviour and her strong character. She is a great woman!
We all make mistakes DANIIL; 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.
Truly to say, I have not had mistakes as a model because I try to control every situation and anticipate consequences which may be. I think profoundly and analyze every opportunity. So need to go on!
DANIIL , 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 prioritizing your clients’ needs?
First of all, clients' needs are more significant rather than mine. However, if clients' demands are not adequate, I try to explain it them and find another way that can be much better indeed. I do all my best and try to stay resourceful all the time.
Please tell us DANIIL, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Honestly, I have had no time to be strategic because of lack of my experience. Recently I have started my activity as a model that is why I try to understand this sphere and its particulars. But I have enough knowledge and minds to be strategic when I need.
DANIIL, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I am a university volleyball captain, and sometimes I have to take important decisions. While an intensive game I suggested some ideas about tactics to implement. My coach was against them, but during one minute I could persuade him to trust me. As a result, we won that game! I was so proud of myself!
DANIIL, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
In fact, it is my first fashion show. I was nervous and excited but did it perfectly. My curator was proud of me because it was a strong and cool performance. Honestly, I did not expect! But I felt confident and wanted to demonstrate who I am! I relaxed and got only positive and unforgettable feelings!
DANIIL, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Well, it is my photoset in the open air in October. It was so cold, windy and slipperily! The weather conditions were inappropriate, but my dream was more important!
I played a role of ancient man, hunter, wild animal. I could make my natural entity wake up! And it was splendid! I lived in my role and behaved like an animal. I loved it! It was so real, and I wanted more, more and more because of my wild energy!
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
You need to think and analyze what you do. You must be real and sincere. You should know how to express yourself and have an impact on others. Learn yourself and your opportunities!
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
It would be great for me to present some brands in media space, magazines and advertising. Also, I am interested in participating in fashion shows and fashion meetings.
