Internet Hollywood: Hey Brie! Thank you for granting me the time of day to do this interview with you. I was excited to see that you accepted my invitation and gave me the green light to work on these questions. I know we dont really know each other as much but that’s the beauty about doing interviews like this. Could you give me a little information on who you are, where you from, and what you do?

Brie: Hello! So happy to be able to do this interview with you. Right now I am a model and nursing student from MA. I started modeling casually in high school and turned it into a more serious career about a year ago, and I’m so excited to share my story of growth in the industry.

Internet Hollywood: why was modeling something that you wanted to turn into a career and how did you manage to build the connects to start off in the beginning?

_

Brie: I wanted to make modeling into a more serious career because it got to a point where I loved it so much that I wanted to work hard and grow, and hopefully turn that hard work into another source of income. In the past year it had become more than just that however. Ever since I was small, I have been interested in the arts and thought creatively in every aspect of my life, so modeling became a way for me to combine that creativity with my love for fashion and makeup in order to create new art that I am now truly proud of in every way. I created connections in the industry in two ways: first, my boyfriend, Alec Klevecka, is a fantastic photographer. I’ve taken many photos with him and he’s helped me immensely in getting my name out there and taking high quality pictures of me. Second, I use social media very often, keeping my followers up to date on my projects as well as finding other talented professionals in the area that share my love for modeling and photography. Most of my connections have been made through social media.

Internet Hollywood: What was the feeling like going through a photo shoot for the very first time and what kind of photo shoots do you prefer doing when engaging in photo shoots with photographers nowadays?

_

Brie: My first photo shoot was actually extremely easy! The photographer was a good friend of mine, Katie Motta, who was a teammate of mine and aspiring photographer at the time, professional now. She was so great to work with and we took great pictures! Nowadays I prefer makeup and swimsuit photoshoots. I specialize and do very well in those areas of modeling. However, I also love creative lighting and colors in my photoshoots.

Internet Hollywood: Is there a bigger vision besides modeling that you would like to express your creative abilities in and possibly make a career out of?

_

Brie: A bigger vision of mine would definitely be to become proficient in other sources of art, such as acting as well, to become a jack of all trades so to speak, similar to what Cara Delavine has done for herself in recent years. She’s definitely an inspiring model, actress, an artist.

Internet Hollywood: With all of the bad stories that be floating around by victims that shared their bad experience i could only imagine the kind of thing that goes through people’s mind when they hear it at the beginning stage of they career. Has the stories of the bad experience that many upcoming models dealth with ever discouraged you from modeling or has it ever crossed your mind or influenced you in a negative way?

_

Brie: Models, actresses, and musicians alike all have heard and I’m sure been shaken by the sad stories of assault and abuse in the art industry. It’s very scary, yes, and I do think about it and take precautions to keep myself safe, however it does not stop me from wanting to pursue and further my career. You just have to watch your back, it’s a scary world, for sure, but that shouldn’t keep anyone from doing what they love to do.

_

Internet Hollywood: What are some of the things your working on and if someone wanted to reach out to you to do business what would be the best way to do that?

_

Brie: My current focus right now and always is to expand my portfolio with new photographers. Every photographer has their unique style and strengths, so I definitely want to work with as many photographers as possible. I also love working with local designers and supporting their businesses. If anyone is looking to reach out to me, the best way would be through my Instagram, @beelovely30, or email, missbee30@gmail.com.
