Danny Lim: “I don’t have a fav model that inspired me because this industry is fun and intense”
18 out, 2015
Danny Lim, born in Penang, Malaysia. Ive been always interested in arts and design and being in the fashion business is perfect. So now I photograph as well from time to time and for for certain projects
I became a model few years back, a friend of mine recommended me to this business. After school I went to sign to my mother agency in Singapore.
I don’t really remember but first test shoot but the best thing about modeling is to expose with all the top photographers and fashion people. learning new things from them is exciting.
I like to create visuals, stills or video. Before being a photographer I am a graphic designer. I switch caused I think this is something that I want to do as my career.
Depends on the photographer, posing naked in front of the camera is not just taking off but being comfortable with the person who is shooting with
Runway shows, role models and his fashion style
I do more prints than runway. Probably I will try next season in Milan.
I don’t have a fav model that inspired me because this industry is fun and intense. Most of the models and all are friends. we don’t see each others as idol but good friends.
I´m not a fashionista, my style is pretty casual, but I do like to dress up a lil. Depends on the weather but my all time favorite is my old pair of levis 501 with a white tee. converse is definitely my sneakers to wear.
Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!
I don’t think I can handle it. I am pretty shy
On show business
I don’t know much about show business. I think its tough
Superpowers and Super heroes
I´d like to be invisible and my favorite superhero probably Spiderman
At the moment in my phone is classic hip hop.
Fav booking so far and why
I guess shooting editorial with good team is my fav job so far. although its tiring.
Craziest thing u´ve ever done in a summertime season
Craziest? Getting naked around the streets.
Fav underwear for all moments (including those sexy ones too!)
CK all the way!
Probably eating deserts at night. I will be someone in a design firm
Yourself in 10 years
I see myself as a photographer in 10 years time (coming soon a new Danny´s interview as a photographer!)
I am planning to travel to Europe or London to do some shoots,probably some personal work
