Meet the brazilian model João Paulo Damázio
12 mar, 2015
Hello World of Models family, my name is João Paulo Damazio, I´m 26 years old, I have a twin borthers and 2 older sisters, I love my family, sports and good music. I want to have my own business someday and go back to university.
I got discovered by the scouter Julio Cicone in my hometown Sorocaba, Brazil. I was walking down the street when he approached me and invited me to participate in a fashion contest. I won the first place and since then I´ve been enjoying it a lot!
My first shooting was with the photographer Vand Rodriguez in São Paulo by my first agency Daphne Models in 2007. Despite of my lack of preparation Vand always did a great job and it was pretty cool posing to him.
The best thing to be a model is to be able to travel and meet people and places around the world that you would never imagined before.
Posing to photographers
I like the possibility to perform different characters once the photographers start to shooting.
Once in a studio a photographer threw milk on my entire body to do a shooting and when the milk dried the smell was unbearable and everyone in the studio started laughing, including me hahaha
Concerning posing naked, it all depends on the photographer, the team involved and most important, the professionalism.
The catwalks´ experiences
I´ve already walked for Adidas at Casa dos Criadores in Brazil. The backstages are always cool. I made good friends there and we had just one bathroom for more than 100 models hahahah
The fashion industry: women still rule!
Yup, yup, no questions about it, but we are getting our mark in this industry. Paulo Zulu, Miro Moreira, Marlon Teixeira and Gisele Bundchen are models that I really admire. They are great professionals in this fashion industry.
João Paulo, a fashionista?
Yes, I am, but I really enjoy the basics, jeans, a shirt and a black shoe.
Imagine u famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!
