Am I a Show Off? Am I Brenda the Model? Sometimes. Especially if there’s a camera pointing at me. There is other websites showcasing my pictures, but here you will learn more about me.
So how did I become Brenda the Model…
…as is common… while walking down the shopping mall sometimes in 2001.. (in Sacramento, CA) an agent had asked me if I wanted to become a model. I admit it had never crossed my mind before. But he showed me that in the hands of a good photographer an ugly duckling can become a swan. Of course with certain genetic mutation.
My Modeling Carrer
After I returned to Czech I placed some photos on local modeling sites and offers started pouring in. Some of them even for photo shooting :). I have no problem with shooting nude if the nude one is NOT the photographer. But sometimes I have a problem with hypocrites.
I collected photos and experience and grew my confidence, wardrobe and makeup supplies. And the investment paid off…
The real photo boom came when I returned back to America and believe it or not after I turned 30. Of course I was always pretending to be 25 ;). Getting a green card was no piece of cake but once I had it the world laid at my feet. I was getting offers form left and right, flying all over the US. Thus collecting references, exploring the world and building up a dream portfolio.
Brenda The Model Portfolio
If you are interested and have a courage to see my diverse portfolio feel free to go to BrendaTheModel.com . Though in November 2020 Wix lost my sites (partially recovered) and my blogs (forever lost). I’m still angry and recovering… stay tuned. You can find my general portfolio on Model Mayhem.
What I like to Shoot
My most favorite shoots were the creative ones, where you get some wild makeup, funny hair or crazy clothes. But I also loved the fashion shoots, which are in many ways similar :). Glamour is always classy and last but not least the nudes, some of them even artful.
And since we are talking about shooting.. I am also terrific with Remington 700, AR 15, AK 47, M1911 and several others 😉
Besides shooting I enjoy being a body painting model. Occasionally co-working with a highly respected body painter Detlef Pötch on many events and occasions. We even appeared together on the TV show Mr.GS. and Particka.
The only think I have never liked to do was hostessing. In my opinion hostessing is the low-end modeling, too many obligations for too little money.
