Model Leonardo Marques: “I never thought about becoming a model. A friend of mine asked me “why don´t you become a model and start to travel around the world?”

28 dez, 2010

Hey guys, I´m Leonardo Marques, a brazilian model and I was born in Brasília, the brazilian capital city. I love a simple life, chilling out with my buddies having a real good time, gym, walking traveling around the world and meeeting new people. After some cool modeling seasons, I´m back to my hometown again to  enjoy this special season of the year with my family and buddies.

The first shooting: Nokia´s big campaign!

I never thought about becoming a model haha, actually I was 17, I had finished school, getting ready for university and looking for a job. So a friend of mine (he´s a model too) asked me “why don´t you become a model and start to travel around the world?  You won´t gonna spend money and you will also meet such unique life styles and cultures”. So  I decided to give a try just because of the trips. Then I had my first shooting for Nokia´s big campaign in whole Asia. That was funny , I did not even know how to pose in front of a camhaha. But after that I startet to fall in love with this modeling business

Working with photographers


You always find out something about yourself with different photographers. It´s one of the aspects that I like most when I work with them. They always tell u something as ” this side of ur face is better than the other one.”. So, I appreciate the
Critics. I don´t have any previous preparation. I just be myself right through the lens of the photographer trying to give him/her what they really expect from me.

 Once I was shooting in Malaysia – Kuala Lampur for L´Uomo Italy – underwear. I was there posing against myself to the “wall” but it was a fake wall not a real one and by accident I put down the whole scenario of the shooting and then I need to wait for almost 3 hours to get back to the shooting again lol.

The catwalks

I love them! The coolest one was for Armani. Just imagine lots of models walking in the runway. I believe that is a great moment in a models career. Funny backstage? i remember in Munich I was walking for Adidas and the light was all over in my face so i could not see the end of the catwalk and guess what happens next? I fell down but just for a brief second cause I I started walking again as if nothing had happened but I think the german client won´t choose me again for his catwalk lol lol


A fashionista?

Def not! I always choose wearing clothes that make me comfortable. I don´t follow fashion trends and I  don´t take too long in front of a mirror

Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!

Well, I really don´t know how I´d react to this situation, I prefer to be anonymous, but if it takes really wild,  I´d probably try to escape to a safer place.


Show biz, Fame, Success and the most important things for his life

I don´t wanna be famous. Success and fame are 2 different things. I mean fame makes you sad, alone and a non-believer people. success in other hand, makes u stronger and positive about your life, When u achieve the succcess in your career, you become  happier people , so if I´d be able to choose, I´d take success with no fame at all, but I´m afraid in my career, unfortunatelly, it won´t be possible

 5 most importat things for my life are

# 1 Love, cause it´s the best feeling in a human being. Love can bring u everything. 
# 2 Famly

# 3 Peace

# 4 Happiness
