Model Jonatas Emidio: “When I pose to photographers, I just feel like being in family”
11 Mar, 2011
Hello everyone, my name is Jonatas, brazilian, 20 years old I am Brazilian and I was born in São Paulo. I started my modeling career when I was 16 (I don´t exactly remember why I decided to go to a modeling agency), but a week later, I was already shooting and I´ve been working hard since then, I feel now I have much more experience to focus my modeling career. I´m really excited for the opportunities that for sure I´ll grab it. Here I go!
My first test shootinig was for an online catalog of a large popular brand. I was very nervous because it was something I really wanted. Anyway, I did my best and it was great!
Working with photographers: different styles, nice moments
I really enjoy working with different photographers with such unique styles, learn about how they really work before start shooting. I have no previous preparation. Hmmm, as a matter of fact I do! The only thing I do is pretty yawn and grimace in the mirror to relax the muscles. Then I just let it flows and it cames so natural to me. when I pose to photographers I just feel like being in family.
I remember I was doing an editorial kinda a androgynous style (the makeup and clothes). The photographer had never done this work with such unusual style and when he saw me, he asked a few minutes to relax before start shooting. Everyone in studio laughed their asses off (lol!).
I´ve walked for OnOne for two seasons at Fashion Week, American rapper Diddy’s label for Sean John, MASH (an underwear´s brand), Guardian Angel, Danilo Centemero, US Army, Ellus, just to name a few.
A backstage story? I was walking in a catwalk then I came back to backstage to change my clothes. But I was so nervous that I really forgot to do it. I remember I had a heavy makeup on my face and then I just started walking again in the catwalk but I noticed that there was anything really strange when I saw the other models with their clothes. I was the only model wearing the same cloth (lol!).
I used to be, but now I enjoy wearing the basics: jeans, a white T-shirt, sneakers, jackets, but I have to admit that when I go to fashion parties I like to atract the audience´s attention wearing some stylish clothes lol!
Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd! I´d just smile and would be gentle to everyone but I´d seek a way out as soon as I could! Don´t like to be in a huge crowd!
Fame and success to me mean work, work and more work! Being recognized to everyone is a result of hard work with professionalism.
Sports: I´m very fond of sports that people use the hands, like volleyball, for example
His way to atracting someone´s attention: through my eyes. I enjoy attracting them, especially the tall and thin girls
Having fun: chilling out with my buddies
Fav underwear for his daily activities and for those cool sexy moments (lol): for my daily activities no preferences at all, but for those cool sexy moments, the colored boxer briefs (black, white or red)
In his IPOD now: Lady Gaga. I also love gospel music
An unforgettable moment: my first time ever on the catwalk at a fashion week
Motto: Be persistent and determined
