18-Year-Old Austin Lee Ielpi Becomes The First Male Model To Receive A Publication In Internet Hollywood

Internet Hollywood News – One up-and-coming 18-year-old model from the state of Vermont is making history after becoming the first male model to receive a publication in Internet Hollywood. I recently interviewed him after a short conversation with an up-and-coming New Hampshire model name Alexa K. Pierce who convinced me to begin publishing news stories on male models sooner than later.

 

The decision to delay the process was due to me not knowing enough male models to feel it would be supported at this point in time. Pierce urged me to reconsider after explaining how male models also experienced tough times inside of the modeling industry. That’s when my views suddenly changed and the process of making this historic moment begun.

 

I realized it was only a matter of time before Ielpi was going to make his historic debut. I was contacted by Melissa of MCM Photography earlier that day and was given dozens of photos from her new glitter shoot that included Ielpi. It was clear to me that this guy was going to make moves with or without my help. I just had to get in touch with him. Heres the full interview!

 

Internet Hollywood: Hey Austin! I have to say that we are super excited to make history with you today. Everyone will soon find out that you are the first male model to be published in Internet Hollywood. How is everything? I’m sure your excited to hear the news.

 

Ielpi: Yes I am extremely excited! to be the first male model to be interviewed! It is such an amazing opportunity!

 

Internet Hollywood: You recently did a photo shoot with MCM Photography and killed it. What was it like working with the amazing Melissa? How did that shoot come together?

 

Ielpi: It was amazing. Melissa is such an amazing person and when she has a concept in mind she will work it into such an amazing piece of art! I met her at one of the group shoots and we just clicked and made such a good friendship!

 

Internet Hollywood: I definitely agree with you. Melissa is a very special person. What was it that made you decide that modeling was something you wanted to pursue? Who lit that flame in your life?

 

Ielpi: I started modeling when I first moved back from Utah in 2015. I did a photo shoot with Lulu Lovering and that is when my modeling career started. I didn’t go very far with it in the beginning. But in January Kiti Gunn told me that I should come do a shoot with her and that’s when it all started! I started modeling a lot more when she helped me open the door!

Internet Hollywood: How did it feel when you modeled a shoot for the very first time? Did you fall in love with it?
———————————————–
Ielpi: I loved it! I felt like I finally found something that I could do without a flaw and just be myself!
———————————————–
Internet Hollywood: Was there anyone or anything that tried to get in the way of you modeling?
 
———————————————–
Ielpi: Of course not! My family and friends are so supportive of me and what I want to pursue in life.
———————————————–
Internet Hollywood: Many people are open to exploring other fields as they become successful in goals they concentrated on for years. What other fields are you open to explore as you master your steps as a model?
———————————————–
Ielpi: For as long as I can remember I have been singing. I have always wanted to do something that had to do with music. I play piano and have been for the past 13 years.
———————————————–
Internet Hollywood: What would you say is the toughest challenge being a male model that does things independently?
 
 
 
———————————————–

Ielpi: Working with photographers who don’t know how to understand my terms. I almost worked with a photographer who would try to take advantage of me and not agree to the terms. I am a very confident person and I don’t have any issues with who I am, but when someone try’s to take advantage of me I don’t take it well.

———————————————–
Internet Hollywood: I definitely understand that. You are also going to the Internet Hollywood party. I definitely look forward to meeting you there. Are there any people that you know that you hope to meet up with at the party?
———————————————–
Ielpi: There are so many people who I have already met. I am so excited to see everyone and especially excited to meet you finally. Everyone who I have met already has had such a huge impact on my life already and it will amazing to see all of their friendly faces!
———————————————–
Internet Hollywood: Many people have been recommending food and beverages for this party. We like to keep every voice and opinion on the table so no one feels left behind. What are some of the things you feel we should serve at the party?
———————————————–
Ielpi: Oh goodness, I don’t know. I’m such a indecisive person that sometimes it takes me a few hours to figure out what I want to eat anyways!
———————————————–
Internet Hollywood: What are some of the dos and don’ts being a male model? What advice would you like to give other men out there who may be interested in becoming models as well?
 
———————————————–
Ielpi: Don’t just assume because you are a guy and you are attractive that you can just get into this business and be paid on the first shoot. You are just starting this and being able to build a portfolio and make connections is the real way into this industry.
———————————————–
Internet Hollywood: If you could change anything about the modeling industry what will it be?
 
———————————————–
Ielpi: I don’t think I would change a lot about the industry itself. Sometimes i talk to people who I find so beautiful and gorgeous in a unique way that I feel they just need to be in front of a camera and pose. But insecurities get in the way because they feel that what they see on the TV and in magazines such as Victoria’s Secret is what the world wants to see and not them. Don’t let what you see in the media get in the way of your beautiful self getting out into the world.
———————————————–
Internet Hollywood: What would you say is your biggest fear when it comes to your career?
———————————————–

Ielpi: Someone trying to bring me down. I am the type of person who will always work on myself so I can be strong. If someone doesn’t like that and is jealous they will attempt to being me down. It has happen before in life, and I wont let someone take me down because of nonsense.

———————————————–
Internet Hollywood: That’s the spirit to have. What is something you’d like to say to the Internet Hollywood universe before we end this interview?
———————————————–
Ielpi: Don’t underestimate me! I may be all sweet and cute but I have a sassy attitude!
———————————————–
Internet Hollywood: There you have it! Thanks so much Austin for the amazing interview!
———————————————–
Ielpi: Thank you for taking time out of your day to interview me! I am so excited for the world to see how I really am!
