Model: Tony Hernandez
Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in modelling as a career?
Tell us something interesting about you, something inspiring. Don't be shy. :)
My work and passion are Fashion Industry. I am 25yrs old, and I have decided to quit smoking. Health and Wellness are important for me. It's not just to satisfy my ego with the way I look but most importantly I want to have a healthy life with the good physical condition for a long, long, time. So besides going to gym, I play football and do water sports when I go on vacation. I love travelling, both leisure and work related because I believe travelling will make a person more humble and learn and respect different cultures; I am a food and wine enthusiast. I am not into partying, my ideas of enjoying life is a balance of good work, being connected with family, my times in the sun, sports, a memorable vacation, a soothing chill lounge music.
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
Learning by Doing; Self-Learning from sophisticated sources.
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
When the Basic Requirement meets. But today, we have more respect towards Uniqueness and Being Different. Many brands have involved Handicapped Models, and for me they are inspiring, to make me do better. Good Attitude is a plus in this Industry; It's not always the Clothes that makes the man; it's Our Character that makes the brand stands out.
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
Being a model for a long time is my priority, but it is not the only goal I try to achieve in my life. I have studied and did business before, and I am looking into Fashion Industry and Retail for my next long career.
What do you know about the advertisement industry, advertising psychology and photography?
We live in the modern world where Media and Advertisements play big role in society. I know enough to work with or promote brands or companies that sell or give good influences to people.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I am open to client requirements as I also have an open mind and open opinion. I am a straight forward kind of person in my work. I am Patient and Friendly in my capacity. One thing for sure, I am an honest work-man, and I expect the same in return. I am focused on my work, and always give my best in any circumstances.
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
When it's possible, I will do my best to go to Gym and Football Everyday. I relax one day or two per week to let my muscle rest and have some sun for my skin. I am not picky in my eating habit, but I eat mostly healthy food because I believe that "We are What We Eat".
What is your dream role as a model?
A Healthy and Fit Model to Inspire the Younger Generation to see that a Professional Model like myself who lives healthy, doesn't smoke, doesn't do drugs, eat right, not partying hard, enjoy a serene (calm) life, DOES EXIST -
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
My limitations and boundaries are connected to my self-respect.
