I recently worked on a look-book with Dunedin based model, Isaac Silva Looker of N Model Managemant and found him awesome work with. He was really down-to-earth and sweet and I was totally impressed how he knew all the words to all the songs that were playing during the shoot! Here’s a bit about Isaac…
How old are you and where are you originally from? Im 19 and I’m from New Plymouth in Taranaki.
What brought you to Dunedin? I came to Dunedin because I wanted to try my hand at health science. I’m majoring in microbiology and minoring in anatomy, but i take some genetics and zoology papers which are amazing!
When and how were you discovered as a model? I was scouted by my agent ngahuia early last year over facebook! funnily enough.
What’s been the highlight of your career so far? I don’t know if I’d call it a career! but it’s all been great. I loved the shoots I did with NO magazine & Black magazine.
Are you doing fashion week? If so, who are you most looking forward to walking for? Yup, I’m back up this year for another fashion week, I think I’m most excited for the Stolen Girlfriends Club show, they’re always great.
What do you do when you’re not studying/modelling? I spend nearly all my time listening to, watching or making music, the music scene in Dunedin is amazing! but lately I’ve been making zines for the local zinefest.
What could you eat all day every day? Popcorn ! I eat a massive bowl everyday.
What are you listening to right now? I’m listening to Blackie – I Dont Wear Sneakers over and over…
What’s the last book you read…other than for study? Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov.
When you were little what did you want to be? When I was little I wanted to be a scientist (preferably a marine biologist ) by day and a rockstar by night.
What’s your favourite piece of clothing at the moment? My favourite piece of clothing at the moment is a tee-shirt I found in an opshop outside of Wellington, made by some bizarre surf brand called Mango that’s bright pink.
