25 out, 2015


Hello World of Models, Iago Botelho here, 18 years old, born in a small city called Santa Maria Madalena located in the state of Rio de Janeiro.






I´m a down to earth person and I think you can´t reach your goals without humility and effort. I love sports, meet new places and have brand new experiences everyday!

Modeling: how did all begin

I got discovered by the agent Jadler Silva and he invited me to participate to 40 Graus Workshop when I met Sergio Mattos, the owner of this agency.


Then I  did my first shooting with the amazing photographer Jeff Segenreich . It was a really cool experience and I enjoyed a lot!

The best thing about modeling for me is to be recognized by the people and to be spotted in so many places around the world,






Posing to photographers and a funny shooting moment

I always enjoy having a previous talk to them to discuss and understand their ideas. Once I was shooting on the beach and suddenly came a strong wave and threw me away lol

Iago´s style: a fashionista?

I like to wear comfortable and good clothes, a cool sneaker on my feet, jeans and t shirt.




Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!

I´d try to go to a quiet place and I´d treat give everyone´s attention they deserve the best way I could!

On show business

 It´s cool for those one who really make part of it





Male models x Female models: who rule this business?

Definitelly they rule cause they got more jobs
