Viktoria: I want to "catch" people's attention with my work. Create images that make people think, to the point where they should be stunned by what they see - in a good way!! I see all this possible in working with talented individuals helping to make these concepts tangible. I want to create the WOW effect!

How did you get started with modeling and how long have you been in the industry?

Viktoria: I never wanted to model, it kind of just happened. I worked full time as a Ballerina in Austria. We had a photographer for our company, and he approached me and asked if I would be interested in taking pictures. I declined for about 2 years. I was very insecure and self-conscious. Finally, after I graduated from school and ballet school, I gave it a try and I really had a great time. I had the feeling I can be myself and just let go in front of the camera. After coming to NYC I was asked to model for a ballet catalog, and due to several circumstances, from one day to the other I started to model full time. It's been nearly 3 years now, and I still love it!

Your modeling is unique as you create by deriving from your dance experience, how did you decide or how did you discover this side of you as a model?

Viktoria: Ballet and dancing was always my first love. I never thought I could work as a model "because I don't fit" in any category, but it turned out to actually work for me because of my talent in ballet, dance, contortion and body control just works perfectly, especially for art nudes.


Little Images

What is your favorite category to model and why?

Viktoria: I love to be versatile, I truly love doing something different every day.

How do you feel posing nude and creating fine art nude images?

Viktoria: Maybe the fact that I am from Europe where nude is not that extra ordinary or the fact that in ballet you always wear tight clothes and not a lot of costumes; nude was never that much of a taboo. I wanted to make sure it is ok for me and I needed to define my boundaries. Once I was sure how far I wanted to go I was very comfortable in posing for fine art nudes.



Throughout your modeling I'm sure you have been to many different places, which has been your favorite and what kind of project were you working on?

Viktoria: I love challenges, I love heights and extreme situations. I have to say my favorite projects are those where i get a an idea of what we wanna do and I have the creative freedom to give my own input, poses, etc, which luckily happens most of the time. So I am really lucky!



Is there anyone who has inspired your work?

Viktoria: I think Ballet has a lot of influences in all kind of my work, it is all about lines and shapes and i realized that I either create lines or break them, and I put attention on my facial expression and my hands as well, so I am not "just striking" a pose. I put attention to little details. This I definitely learned from my ballet education!

When at a photoshoot, what do you love most about the experience and what do you find challenging as a model?

Viktoria: I love to let go, be spontaneous, try new things/poses, be creative. The hardest part is if the photographer has no idea at all what he wants, because then can just try to give my best, but if u don't know what you want at all, how can u get it?


Niel Galen Photography

How would you best describe yourself using just 3 words?

Viktoria: Hard working, Ambitious, Passionate/Dedicated

What do you think your strongest feature is in modeling?

Viktoria: My flexibility


Henry Riggs Photography

At the end of the day when all is done what are you most proud of?

Viktoria: When a photographer is happy with my work and I see the glow in his eyes, then I know i did a good job.
