Below is my interview with C-Marie, she's 24-years-old and based out of Stone Mountain, GA. Follow her on social media + look over her work throughout this interview!
Location: Stone Mountain, Georgia
How Did You Get Your Start In Modeling?
I began modeling when I was a toddler when I participated in a Macy’s Fashion Show. I’ve always enjoyed creating my own style and unique poses and then capture them through the lens. I continued doing practice shoots and fashion shows through high school and college. There I was a member of the UGA Agency and Infinite Appeal Agency. During that time, I also modeled for Entourage Clothing and Gifts Boutique in Athens, Ga. After graduation, I was signed to J Pervis Talent Agency and walked in the Angel’s of Life Fashion Show. I continued to pursue modeling and walked in the Fashion Jams Show for Kontrol Magazine and next year I will walk in the Bronner Brother’s International Hair Show in Atlanta, Ga.
When Did You Know That You Wanted To Continue Pursuing Modeling?
After watching America’s Next Top Model and falling in love with Tyra Banks and the actual process of modeling, I knew it was where I’m meant to be and that I wanted to model forever.
Is Your Drive/Passion The Same As When You Started Modeling? Why Or Why Not?
My passion is the same but my drive has changed for the better. I am even more hungry to work with amazing photographers, modeling agencies, and shows than ever before!
What Are Your Goals For Modeling? (Agency signing? Starting your own agency? Other?)
I would like to get signed to another agency in 2017 and work in runway, high fashion, print, commercial, promotional, and beauty divisions of modeling.
What Was Your Best Modeling Memory?
The best memory would have to be when I was selected to walk in the Bronner Brother’s International Hair Show. I worked hard on my walk and appearance and it all paid off!
What Was Your Worst Modeling Experience?
The worst experience would be when I was referred to a lady who does head shots in Atlanta, Ga and when I got there, her assistant didn’t know how to do black girls hair and makeup. I allowed them to do the best that they could and then make the best out of the situation. The photos came out pretty average and unprofessional looking.
What Do You Hope To Leave As A Legacy With Your Modeling?
I hope to leave my edgy and unique style of posing and my runway walk as my legacy.
What Do You Plan To Pursue If/When You Step Away From Modeling?
I plan to be a motivational speaker for the youth. I’ve always wanted to give back and help the younger generations in any way that i can!
Who Is Your Inspiration In The Modeling World?
Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, and Eva Pigford.
