Andy Walters: “I love, when shooting with the photographer, I get the sensation of being one with the project”
06 jul, 2014
I was born in a small town in the north of Milan, to and English-German mother and an Italian father. My hobbies including watching movies, especially those of Quentin Tarantino and jewelry – I love the sparkle of metals and stones, they fascinate me and I lose myself in their beauty.
Modeling: how did all begin
My older sister convinced me to try a career as a model and one day while I was walking to university, I received a call from WHY NOT (the best agency!) and they took me right away and even organized a shoot for the next day with Omar Macchiaveli.
When I arrived on location I was very excited and intimidated, but once I started I quickly felt comfortable with my surroundings and it all came very naturally after that, especially my goal to achieve a career with a level high enough with good earnings to fulfill my dreams ……this, I will talk about later on.
Posing to photographers
I love, when shooting with the photographer, I get the sensation of being one with the project. Normally I do not prepare, I do what I feel and can based on the project and the photographer, acting and playing the part presented to me through the mood and concept of the shooting.
My favourite catwalk shows were Givenchy, Mugler, Dolce & Gabbana and Brioni. While I walk, I tell myself to relax and interpret the brand as best I can.
Male models getting exposure into the fashion industry
The mens’ sector in fashion is growing and I am inspired by Tony Ward.
Andy´s style: a fashionista?
No. When I am not modeling I like going out with friends and acting like a tourist, traveling the world.
Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!
I guess I would be the cutest and act as natural as possible.
