Beyond The Lens – One pretty awesome friend and supporter of mine by the name of Vonne Bittercup gave me the inside scoop on her plans to get into the realm of independent modeling and a little research shows me she is off to a pretty swell start. I saw a pretty awesome picture on her page that was taken by Massachusetts photographer David West and she looked incredible in it. This only boosted my hunger to share it even more.
I contacted Bittercup a little over two weeks ago, to redo the interview that was originally done for Christmas until migration errors caused the website to be shut down for 11 days, passing the dates each interview is supposed to be released. She understood completely and gave us the green light to work on the short interview. I hope you enjoy reading it!!

Internet Hollywood: What’s up Vonne!? The new year has been off to a great start for a lot of talented people who openly expressed the next steps in their careers. Now your pretty much just getting your foot into the independent modeling world. Have you planned out what steps you are going to take first to get everything started?
Bittercup: Just really getting comfortable with myself, and comfortable being photographed by others. I have not planned a thing other than just go one foot at a time, and be myself.
Internet Hollywood: What is it about modeling that makes you want to give it a try and what are you hoping to gain from it in the ending?
Bittercup: I have been photographing myself for a while, and I like to see how others capture me. But what it really gets down to is the feeling I get when a woman messages me and tells me she feels beautiful and confident in herself because of the photographs I post. That’s why I am doing it. I want people to feel good about themselves.
Internet Hollywood: What style of shooting are you open to doing with photographers?
Bittercup: Everything! I’m open to whatever and don’t mind “odd” concepts! I really want to do a milk bath shoot and maybe something fun with candy.
Internet Hollywood: Is there any other talent that you have that you want to make a career out of?
Bittercup: I’m pretty damn good at makeup, and I do my own hair coloring, but there’s still a lot to learn. And well, I don’t really have the financial opportunity to go to school for cosmetology.
Internet Hollywood: Are you also interested in modeling in runway shows?
Bittercup: I absolutely would love to!
Internet Hollywood: Do you have a dream shoot yet?
Bittercup: There’s so much awesome stuff I want to do!
Internet Hollywood: Last question; Is there anyone that you would like to collaborate with?
Bittercup: Totally! I’m chronically ill, I don’t work, so all i do is TFP. But dream photographers top three right now, Raven Macabre, Miss Mischief, and Kev Cool.
Internet Hollywood: Thank you so much for the interview, Bittercup!
