I have many passions in my life: music, modeling, sport, traveling, psychology, driving, reading and others.
As for modeling I started it about five years ago when my friend invited me to participate in his photo project. I loved it so much and decided to continue and to develop in this area. So I searched for more photographers and projects and started to create a portfolio and to explore new images.
I love traveling, explore new interesting places and meet nice people there. Currently, I am in Belarus, but I am ready to go to any corner of the world and have a new experience in modeling. I love to challenge myself in different areas. My dream is to work for a famous model agency abroad and participate in various interesting photo projects.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Polina. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
What makes me special is that I can be weird sometimes. I'm not afraid to experiment
Polina, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I started modelling five years ago and fell in love with it immediately. I feel free in front of a camera, and I can be different and be myself at the same time.
Who is your inspiration in life Polina? How do you keep inspired?
I'm inspired by music, beautiful people around, traveling, interesting books, incredible stories of people who have achieved a lot in life.
We all make mistakes Polina; 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.
Fortunately, while I have not had a bad experience in modeling and I enjoyed every shooting.
Polina , 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?
I will prioritize and choose the client whose offer is closest to me, to my soul. I will feel it because the heart doesn't lie.
Please tell us Polina, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Somehow I had a shot on a very cold day (in winter). I had to shoot half-naked, and I had to think through all the nuances. Otherwise, I could get sick (that day there was frost and strong wind). But thanks to a clear planning everything turned out perfectly, and the shooting was successful.
Polina, 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 lucky to meet such photographers with whom we have the same views on what shooting should be, and therefore everything always passes very easily and on the same wave.
Polina, 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?
At the moment, the proudest shooting for me is the winter shooting about which I have already told a little. I lay half-naked in the snow, and I was very cold (all my friends said that I am crazy). But it was worth it. The result turned out as we wanted. I'm proud that I was able to do this (because I'm very thermophilic), it was a challenge for me, and I won.
Polina, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Sometimes I understand that I want extra-ordinary shooting, but it's really hard to find a team who can implement this idea, or hard to find a suitable place. It takes time...I can say that if I love the idea of shooting and this idea inspires I then I become creative
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
I'm not yet professional enough to give advice, and I'm working on myself to become better and grow but what can I say for now is "Don't be afraid to take the first step if you want to be a model and feel that it is yours. Do what you love with passion and you will be successful".
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I will be happy to collaborate with talent people from all over the world and to be part of a professional team in any sphere of model business
