Beyond The Lens – New York model Rayne O’Reilly has taking the time to shine some light on her career for Internet Hollywood for the very first time. The model was selected out of a group of talented people that posted their fan pages under my status for me to check out.
The ones I decided to select I asked a total of 5-questions to quickly get as any new faces with talent published on Internet Hollywood as fast as possible. Enjoy the interview!
Internet Hollywood: What’s up Rayne? It has been one busy weekend for me over here at Internet Hollywood. I’ve been interviewing a lot of upcoming talent from all over America. It feels good to interview another upcoming model. What started your journey as a model in the very beginning?
O’Reilly: Well a very warm hello to you Justin! I am excited that you asked me to join the list of other models you have interviewed. I started modeling around 2011. My husband dabbled in photography for a few years before we met. One day we just decided to go out around our neighborhood, we lived in a rural area so there were many isolated places to use, and we had a great time shooting nudes of me. I grew up in a very conservative family so the thought of getting naked and taking pictures was very taboo for me. Yet it felt so exhilarating and I fell in love with the thought of being a nude model. So soon I discovered ModelMayhem.com and it didn’t take long for my modeling journey to take off.
Internet Hollywood:Has there been people in your life that made it difficult for you to focus on your career so you had to cut them off?
O’Reilly: Oh absolutely, like I said my family was very conservative, and the thought of nude images of me floating around the internet was a very shocking time for them. They tried to persuade me to stop, and gave me every reason in the world that this was wrong. At that point in my life I started to differentiate my self from my family of origin and created a new philosophy on certain aspects of life. My family basically disowned me for a few years. After sticking by my decision, certain members of my family came around, however others did not….and I am ok with that.
Internet Hollywood: How do you handle haters whenever they get out of place and try to make you feel less of who you are to stop you from succeeding?
O’Reilly: Honestly, I really haven’t encountered “Haters.” I am sure there are people that have talked negatively about me, but that happens no matter what. If I do have haters I am pretty oblivious to them. I really just do my own thing, and ignore the negative. It makes for a better sense of self and allows me to keep moving forward.
Internet Hollywood: What are some projects you are working on now?
O’Reilly: Well I have a few shoots lined up for the next couple months, but lately I have been trying to get back into my self-portraits. I also love the aspect of exhibitionism that comes from modeling, so it is fun to seek out places that are acceptable to enjoy that side of myself. I also get a kick out of watching people react to the whole nude girl on the beach think lol. I guess voyeurism is a turn for me as well.
Internet Hollywood: If things go according to planned, where do you see yourself around this time next year?
O’Reilly: I have been in the industry for quite awhile and I have built up a robust portfolio. I guess I see myself still enjoying the fun and excitement that comes with working with new and old models, photographers, MUA’s, etc…in the industry. I would like to do more travel as a model. Maybe that will be a goal of mine for the next year.
Internet Holllywood: Thank you Rayne for the interview!
