Interviews – The countdown is on and dozens of models, photographers, musicians, and more are preparing to celebrate up and coming Internet sensations from all over New England. The semiprivate media/dance event will bring together talent from all over to celebrate the rising sensations all over Internet Hollywood, the Internet, and in the entertainment business.
One of those gorgeous upcoming sensations that will be attending the event is Massachusetts model Raven Ashley. The extremely talented and very supportive model has been supporting Internet Hollywood in the best way possible and we appreciate her for it. She managed to trigger our buzz alert after Prince Vega interviewed her about her thoughts on Internet Hollywood, her wardrobe choice for the party, and what sensation is she hoping to see at the party. You could check the short interview below.
Internet Hollywood: Hey Raven! First off, I would like to begin by congratulating you on becoming one of our newest sensations. Seeing beautiful new faces like yours enter Internet Hollywood is what keeps our beautiful website fresh and popular. Have you been liking what you’ve been seeing so far in Internet Hollywood as far as the way we operate?
Riley: Yes! I love the positivity.
Internet Hollywood: Is there anyone that you know is going that you would like to see at the party?
Riley: I’m not sure if Isabel is going but definitely her if she is
Internet Hollywood: She’s definitely going to be there along with other sensations as well. Now that your a new sensation, have you been getting the hang of how Internet Hollywood operates. A lot of people have been noticing the excitement surrounding Internet Hollywood. What are your thoughts on all the feed back Internet Hollywood has been getting? Does it make you feel like it’s something that makes you want to be more apart of?
Riley: My thoughts on the feedback Internet Hollywood has been getting is I think it’s great there is something that gets people recognized for their talent and also some fun facts about people. A lot of other places that report stories try to embarrass or make up stuff just to sell a story but Internet Hollywood is different. Not once have I seen a story that puts someone down or embarrasses someone. It is definitely something I would love to be more apart of.
Internet Hollywood: That’s good to hear. It’s almost confirmed that you’ll be attending the Internet Hollywood party! A lot of girls have been asking me what they should wear. Have you decided what you are going to wear yet for the party?
Riley: I’m not sure yet. It’s between my black dress or my nice jeans and a blouse.
Internet Hollywood: I noticed a lot of the sensations are excited to see their friends at this party that they haven’t seen in a while. Are there any people in this party that you look forward to seeing?
Riley: So far the only person I know is Isabel, but I’ve had the privilege of working with Schon-Ray. I’m friends with Melissa Morris so I look forward to meeting her.
Internet Hollywood: You recently recommended something for the party I think everyone should know about. What was the beverage you chose and why do you think we need it?
Internet Hollywood: What kind of music are you hoping to hear at the Internet Hollywood party. What kind of music moves Raven Ashley?
Riley: I’m into a variety of music from modern stuff like Marian Hill to more alternative like Nirvana
Internet Hollywood: Nirvana was pretty amazing. What was your favorite Nirvana song?
Riley: Heart shaped box hands down.
Internet Hollywood: What is the reason you started modeling and when was it that you decided this was something your going to pursue as a career field?
Riley: I’ve always been interested in it. I just never had the confidence to actually pursue it. My aunt Tara is who got me started. Also my friend Ann helped me practice posing and expressions. I fell in love instantly with it. I’ve never been one to try to stand out or attract attention to myself. This got me out of my shell. It pushed me to step out of my comfort zone and I couldn’t be happier. My husband is one of my biggest supporters and honestly if it wasn’t for him helping me get to my shoots and even giving me honest feedback, I don’t think I would be where I am with it. So far it’s a hobby but I’m hoping the more I network the more likely I will get booked for a high fashion magazine but that is something far in the future. If this could be my job I would be happy. I just need to pay my dues and work hard to build up a reputable portfolio.
Internet Hollywood: Sounds like you have an amazing support system. What would you say is the worst thing about being an independent model?
Riley: I would have to say not knowing which photographers are good and which arent. By good I mean someone who isn’t going to push you to do something you aren’t comfortable with or just plain creepy. I’ve only had this happen a couple of times thank goodness but for people just starting out or don’t have a lot of good connections, it’s very hard to know who to trust.
Internet Hollywood: What are some of the signs models should recognize to know they are dealing with a bad photographer?
Riley: Someone who doesn’t take no for an answer when asking if you do nude shots. Or if they tell you one thing and when you show up they start talking about taking some nude photos when it was made clear that it’s not something you are comfortable doing. If they can’t give you any legit references or have a shady site
Internet Hollywood: Is there anyone you want to give a shout out to before we end this interview?
Riley: I would love to thank isabel for connecting me with such great people! Also my husband Chad Martin for always being there and supporting me.
Internet Hollywood: Thanks for the interview. I can’t wait to see you there
Riley: I’m so excited! Thank you for contacting me. I look forward to meeting you in person!
