The thing that makes me unique is my perception of things (and I think that make us all unique), for example, the places where I go, the people I talk, and the things I see. Everything has an impact on my life.
Jorge, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I started a year ago, uploading photos on Instagram. But I wanted them to look as artistic as possible.
Who is your inspiration in life Jorge? How do you keep inspired?
I find my inspiration in my dreams and goals, and also by learning the most I can from everywhere (magazines, the internet, other models, etc.).
We all make mistakes Jorge; 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.
Well, I don't wish to have handled any situation differently, because I wouldn't be here if I had made something different.
Jorge, 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?
Mostly by having an agenda and a schedule.
Please tell us, Jorge, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Most of the time because I need to go exercise every day, go to castings, eat healthily, etc. So as I said, I need to have a clear schedule.
Jorge, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
There was one time when I was working with a photographer, and as respectfully as possible we talked about some poses that I would like to use in order to have great shots.
Jorge, 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?
For me, all castings are accomplishments, because that means that I'm working to achieve my dreams.
Jorge, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Some of the pictures you will see, I really wanted them to be artistic, that's why some of them are with the eyes closed, or looking to other ways. And also I think that with the black and white, the photos will reflex some thoughts of the one who sees them.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
To follow their dreams, and start taking pictures even with their phones, by that you will get experience to pose in camera and nice photos.
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 would love to have collaborations on editorials, magazines and fashion campaigns.
