Loammi: “A photographer might ask you to climb up a rope or have your face splashed with paint,or have you dance and be goofy on set. That’s what keeps it interesting and fun”.

02 out, 2011

My name is Loammi, I was born and raised in Belgium. I currently live in Antwerp which is a very cool and vibrant city with lots of old buildings and young people destroying them:)

It’s symbol is a hand so my hometown is famous for Belgian chocolate hands and cookies. Personal interests I would say sports, good food watching series like The big bang theory or Family guy,drawing

How did all begin

I was scouted on facebook about two years ago now. I decided to go for it because I did have the intention to travel a lot and discover the world and it seemed like a great way to do it.

My first testshoot, I remember being extremely nervous, it ended up being a very cool experience and a fun day in the end.

Working with photographers: climbing up a rope, face splashed with paint…

I like when a photographer has the time to give you an idea of what he wants and tells a story. Especially if its more of an art shoot I love getting a story up front of what he or she has in mind.

There’s a lot of unusual things that happen on shoots, those are usually the most fun to do. A photographer might ask you to climb up a rope or have your face splashed with paint,or have you dance and be goofy on set. That’s what keeps it interesting and fun.

Women still rule this business

I think female fashion stills dominates over male fashion. Even tho male models do get more exposure these days, most male models and a lot of the female models still stay virtually nameless to people on the street.

Favorite male model I would have to say Mathias Lauridsen, female probably Rosie Huntington Whiteley.

The catwalks

A runway on broken glass in Tokio, that was pretty special. Backstage at shows is usually a lot of stress but in the end you feel such a relief and everyone usually smiles. I’ve worked for DKNY, Daniele Allesandrini, Wooyoungmi, Thom browne…

A fashionista?

Not at all. I like to wear jeans and tshirts most of the time although wearing a suit at a party can make anyone feel great.

Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!

I would probably keep going, just smile, be friendly.

Show biz, fame, success, most important things for his life….

I think show business is a very challenging world on it´s own, fame and success should always come from hard work that pays off.

The 5 most important things for me would be

Health
Family
Nature
Friends
Good Food

Dating X Love

Honest and intimate

Sports

Very focussed and straight to the point. I like sports that are explosive and count on reflexes. Tennis, for example, is a sport I’ve always loved.

Atracting someone´s attention and enjoying life

Not trying to attract attention usually attracts the most interesting people. I like to go to parks, Either alone and with a sketchbook or with good friends. I like going to the movies or sitting at home with a glass of wine with my housemates.

The craziest (nastiest?) thing he´s ever done in a summer time season

Going to a nude beach with my family.{AWKWARD}

Abdomen, because its naturally toned

Fav underwear for daily activities and for those coooool sexy moments (lol!)

In his IPOD

Tagliatelli with brocolli and salmon in cream sauce

If  you weren´t a model, u´d be…

The projects

I just shot with Steven Meisel in New York for Vogue Italia, shot for Vogue Japan, WWD . Later this year I will probably go back to New York and just keep travelling round the worl I hope :).

An unforgettable moment

My first time arriving to New York over the Manhattan bridge.
