João Pedro de Castilhos:” When I´m walking down the catwalk I think about everything that makes me feel happy: my mom, dad, my brother and my friends”
17 ago, 2016
Alright folks, so ,y name is João Pedro Martini de Castilhos, 20 years old and I was born in Caxias do Sul, a city located in the south of Brazil.
Besides modeling the thing I like most is Djing. I simply love it! I spend hours and hours playing songs with my z1 and x1. Also like to go to the gym and hanging out with my buddies.
When I was sixteen years old i started going to the gym and also had a nutritionist supporting me…o my body started getting in a better shape and people saying “Oh my God, you should be a model”, a lot of people told that to my mom as well
I met Maycon Silveira (my actual booker and a photographer too) through my mom´s friend. He introduced me to Maycon and that´s how I began into this modeling´s world!
Posing to Photographers
Professionalism is the key! And also when they are cool guys I feel myself comfortable and relaxed. I enjoy having a previous talk before the shooting and then I just let it go!
I was making an editorial for Mensch Magazine, which is a brazilian magazine, and this guy approaches me while we were shooting and made a joke about the situation. He made me laugh while the photographer was clicking and he said “the pictures that you u were smiling turned out naturally great. The best ones for sure”, And that was the selected ones for that editorial.
The runway shows
I´ve walked for my first show a couple of months ago for a brand called NAESAI, they made this artsy kinda walk, which was very sick and I liked it!
When I´m walking down the catwalk I think about everything that makes me feel happy, my mom, dad, my brother and friends, i miss them a lot already.
Male models x Female models
I think women still rule this business, but we are getting more and more exposure. Model Lucky B Smith is a cool guy and also Stephan James and his tattoos.
João Pedro´s style: a fashionista?
I love fashion! I always bring my suitcase when I am going to shooting, with all my cool clothes and we always end up using them.
My style is mainly black/white clothes, over sized shirts normally with skinny denim and some sick boots or sneakers and I love Marcelo Burlon, Ktz, Y3, Off white…
Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!
It depends on how it goes, but I would probably just try to get somewhere I could be comfortable and I´d enjoy the time and hanging out with everybody that would be there.
Superpowers and Superheroes
My super power would be reading minds and my favorite super hero is Wolverine .
Atracting someone´s attention and enjoying the best of life
Djing, hanging out with my friends, Starbucks and working out at the gym. Bee with my friends in a private party, which I’m the main attraction. making a b2b with my bro Gui Pereira.
Fav underwear for all moments (including the sexy ones!)
Big underwear’s, boxer or bigger, CK, EA or DKNY. For those sexy moments… hahahaha… same brands, but smaller kinds, the ones I usually go to castings
Best job ever and why
RUNWAY SAENAI, just because it was a runway and a really cool one .
Yourself in 10 years
I don’t know yet, I try to live life to the fullest, so I think the future will be a result of that.
Me and my mother agency are still working on my upcoming projects, and for now I plan on to get in the best shape I can to work as much as possible !
