Rio 40 Graus, the series: Model Rodrigo Pletsch
20 jun, 2015
Hi folks! My name is Rodrigo Pletsch, 29 years old and living in Niterói near to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
I love sports (I practice wakeboard and muay thai), gym, science and arts. I´m a painter and a graphic designer too.
Modeling: how did all begin
I´ve always liked fashion and some time ago a friend of mine, who was a model, took me to a modeling agency and then I got signed to 40 Graus Models. My first test was cool and simple.
The best thing about modeling is to be able to meet new people and wear a new character depending on the job.
Posing to photographers and the runway shows
A good previous sleeping night is always very important and also a previous talk to the photographer to achieve a great result.
Catwalk is always fun, I feel relaxed in the backstages. When I´m walking down the catwalk I just focus on the music playing and move on.
Male models x Female models
I think women still got much more exposure than the male models. Alessandra Ambrosio, for example, is very talented and sexy female model and also a great inspiration to me, but Marlon Teixeira is undoubtedly a great name into this fashion industry. I’m also a fan of my friend Márcio and his twin brother Marcos, the Patriota brothers. They rock this fashion world!
Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!
I´d give everyone´s attention and if the situation got wild, I´d run out as fast as I could
On show business
It is a market that moves a lot of money.
Fav body part and underwear
My hair because it gave me a lot of work and also its really cool to stay the way I want
Fav underwear is CK all the way
Craziest thing in you´ve ever done in a summer time season
Surfing on a very huge and wild sea
Nickname in the school
Heavy Metal because I really liked it!
Music and Food
Rock, indie rock and hip hop, Singers 2 pac, Eminem, Drake, among others
Fish is my fav food
10 years from now
Hopefully still working as a model, even if it is not my main occupation.
An unforgettable moment
Every fashion moment is unforgettable!
” Everything is transitory “
Currently on castings here in Brazil and I hope to travel abroad to focus on my international modeling career, meeting new people and places around the world
