I am the type of girl you see on the street and have to double take because I catch your eye! My name is Summer Gwinn. There's nothing I love more than to curl up with a good book or paint the day away on a canvas. I have so many hobbies and talents; singing, painting, pole dancing, writing, modelling, photography, and more. But, the best feeling is when I'm in front of that camera.
Summer, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I started modelling to help with my self confidence, which I was lacking. Before I knew it, I was doing shoots daily. It's a part of my daily life now. Wake up, eat, model, do it again. Modelling is my main passion right now.
Who is your inspiration in life Summer? How do you keep inspired?
I consider several people to be an inspiration to me, but in the end, I am my biggest inspiration. I started modelling to feel better about myself. And now, I can help others feel that way too.
We all make mistakes Summer; 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.
I am a very likeable person and thankfully haven't gotten into an altercation.
Summer, 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?
I stay on top of things as much as I possibly can. What is a top priority will always come first? I'm very good at keeping myself and clients organised.
Please tell us Summer, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I've had to become comfortable with things I never thought I would. I knew that if I didn't, that, as a model, I wouldn't be able to get very far.
Summer, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I've helped fellow employees avoid drama by persuading them otherwise.
Summer, 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?
So far, my proudest accomplishment as a model would be that I got over 11,000 followers on Instagram for my modelling.
Summer, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I was able to create a twisted kind of look with a photoshoot by using my flexibility. It was very complicated because of the awkwardness of the pose, yet exciting because I knew the photo was going to come out great!
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Never back down or stop trying. You are your biggest critic.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, any kind.
