New faces rock, the series. Episode 30: Matthijs Kaspers!
02 nov, 2011
Great pleasure for me as well Ed!
Well, my name is Matthijs Kaspers , 20 years old and I live in a little place called Hasselt, it’s like 1,5 hours from the beautiful city Amsterdam in Holland.
This year is going to be my first year on the Art School. Really looking forward to it because this is a education where I can put in all my energy and creativity in.
How did all begin: through the social network
I didn’t decide to become a model, a photographer did for me! He found me on the social network and asked me if I wanted to do a shoot with him. First I was like: ‘Whattt? Why me?’ S o I went there and I loved it! He said that I should send my pics to an agency. I didn’t had a clue how the world of the model works so I asked him to do it for me.
The day after I received a mail from Tony Jones Model Management. He wanted me to come over! That’s where it all begun. The best thing so far is going to Boston and NYC with another model from Holland to shoot with great photographers.
Working with photographers, previous preparation. Posed naked already?
Hahah well, I don’t really have a preparation, but mostly I imagine that my favorite girl is in the room/location where I need to pose and I have to impress her with just my face in every way, try everything haha. I didn’t pose naked, not sure if I want to do that!
The catwalks experiences
Last year I could go the Fashion show in Milan but my school didn’t let me go there, maybe the right decision because it was my graduation year. I was really upset thou, would love to work there sometime.
Modeling world: women still rule this business?
Hmmmmmm.. I think male models are taking over slowly haha.
Not really a fashionista, just wearing what I like! Skinny jeans, logo-less shirts, cardigans, (jeans) blouses.
Imagine u a famous model surroounded by a huge crowd!
I would say: guys, beloved fans, make some room, let me do my dance! Then I dance for like 1 minute and the crowd would be amazed and stare. That’s the moment when I walk away in fame without them noticing .. hahah. If that doesn’t work I wouldn’t know what to do.
Show business, fame, success, most important things for his life…
Show business is not my thing! The 5 most important things are: Happiness, Health, Family and Friends, don’t worry be sexy.
Gymnastics (Rings/high bar/trampoline/etc.) fitness and windsurfing
Atracting someone´s attention
Having fun, enjoying life
My way to have fun is being with my friends, they make me laugh the most.

Time is never wasted when you’re wasted all the time.
