Robson Buchele: “I’m not a big fan of coffee but when it comes to shootings a good latte can come good in hand”
24 mai, 2015
Thank you for your interest, it’s my pleasure! My name is Robson Luiz Batista but I use Buchele as my professional last name since of my granddad who I admire a lot and was a great guy.
I was born in Brusque, a small town located in the state of Santa Catarina, south of Brazil and I have ethnicity from France and Italy as well.
On my spare time I like to walk around and explore new places, hang out with both family and friends, and just try to enjoy my life as much as possible.
Modeling: how did all begin
When I was 16 years old a friend of mine whom I was studying with kind of pushed me to a contest where I managed to get selected to the finals. From there I got selected by some international agencies, though I didn’t start traveling overseas till after 6 years later because I wanted to finish my studies first and spend more time with my family.
When I finished my studies I went to São Paulo where I spent two years modeling until I took off and started traveling abroad.
My first test shoots was in São Paulo which was quite inspiring and also motivated me in a way of keep going with the modeling.
What I like about modeling is that it open up your eyes and open up a lot of new doors. You get to travel and see new places, meeting new interesting people, you learn a lot and you’re growing up a lot just as a human being.
Posing to Photographers
I like when I can get a connection with the photographer easily so we can manage to get something brilliant out of the ideas that’s meant for the shooting.
I’m not a big fan of coffee but when it comes to shootings a good latte can come good in hand. Also I tend not to think too much before the shooting and just trying to go with the flow.
I like to do shootings in general because I feel like I can get my personality out there while doing it and also because I can try to bring out some of my creative sides as well.
When it comes to being naked in front of the camera I feel quietly relaxed if I know that the photographer is a professional one and who is someone that can make me feel comfortable as well.
I can’t recall any particular unusual/funny backstage stories but just by being backstage always brings me into a good mood, where I always try to interact with everyone and try to make everyone be in the same good mood feeling as I’m being in.
The runway shows
I’ve been walking for Armani Exchange, Gucci, Givenchy and etc. I always get a bit nervous before stepping out there on the runway but as I’m walking that mood changes into an adrenaline boost instead. I just try to keep my mind focused and not to trip and fall! Haha
Male X female models: who rule this business?
I think male models are getting a little bit more exposure these nowadays compared to before, though the female models still seem to have a bit more of space when it comes to this.
My favorite models are David Gandy and Gisele Bündchen who’s been inspiring me to pursue my modeling career to the next level since I look up to them and have seen in way of how they made their steps up to the place where they are at right now.
A dumbest thihng u´ve ever heard a model say
A funny “dumb” thing I’ve heard before is when my friend was saying that she was scared of butterflies because of that they might bite her and butterflies don’t even have a mouth. Hahaha
Imagine u famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!
If a situation would happen such as a crowd would get wild because of me then I would probably get a bit overwhelmed by it at first of course but I would be polite, nice and try to give them some attention.
On show business
When it comes to show business then it depends what kind of show biz it is if I have to answer, but as long as you’re doing what you’re doing and it makes you happy then keep on doing it.
Robson, a fashionisto?
I see myself as more of a casual fashionisto though when I’m at home or just chilling with friends/family I tend to wear more comfortable laid back clothes.
Dating X Loving
Dating is good but when you find someone who you can be next to which is quietly hard for a model since of the traveling, it’s even better.
I like sports such as volleyball, swimming. Football is unfortunately not on the list (shame on me since I’m a brazilian), hehe.
Atracting someone´s attention
If I want to attract or capture someone’s attention I try to get eye contact. Talking with confidence and also one more thing that is very important to me is to be yourself
Having fun, enjoying life
My way to have fun can be everything from being at home by myself watching a movie, reading a book, cooking, drinking wine, or just chilling to exploring new places, getting to know new people, partying which never killed nobody… Just trying to enjoy myself as much as possible in general.
Craziest thing u´ve heard in a summer season
Oh lord… My craziest/nastiest moment during summer cannot be mentioned but I can tell you that I have some. Haha
Fav body part and why
My favorite body part about myself is my eyes because I can express myself through them. Though when it comes to a favorite body type in general I would say the eyes as well for the same reason.
Fav underwear for daily acitivities and for those cool sexy moments!
I don’t really have any favorite underwear but I prefer to wear boxers and for the cool, sexy moments I rather be naked. Haha
Super powers and Superheroes
If I could have a super power it would definitely be flying because then I could do the perfect trip in my own way or escape ever now and then.
My favorite superhero is my dad because he’s a fighter who I look up to and who’s very determined and honest.
Music and Food
I don’t have a favorite singer but I can’t survive without music. There’s not a single day that I don’t hear music. I feel very eclectic when it comes to music but I rather be listening to American/British music so I can improve my English. For now I’m listening a lot to London grammar and one of my favorite songs by them is “Strong”.
I have to say that I really miss my grandma’s Feijoada dish and my mom’s Ensopado de linguiça com batata dish.
Anything that has chocolate involved.
Earliest childhood memory and nickname
One of my earliest and good memories that I have is when my family and I were going to a park together in Brazil during the weekend where we had a lot of fun. I remember that I was feeling super happy that day to have them around and to feel safe.
My family used to call me Nino when I was a kid and in my school I was always being called Robby.
If u weren´t a model u´d like to be…
Probably be a movie director
An unforgettable moment
When I said bye to my mom when I had to leave Brazil.
Yourself in 10 years
I have my plans and of where I would like to see myself as in 10 years though I instead prefer to take day by day as it comes since every day is a new day and since of that fact, everything can change.
My actual and upcoming projects are just to keep doing what I’m doing, also to improve and to get better. Keep on modeling for a couple of a few more years and see where it leads me. Hopefully to the places that I would like to reach.
I would like to finish traveling through most of the parts in Asia first and after that go to Europe. Actually not only for modeling but I would like to get an opportunity to study abroad as well such thing as product marketing or Adm.
