words Nina Calloway
We got a chance to catch up with Model Danille Rodriguez.
The 5’10 beauty resides in San Antonio, Texas. One interesting fact about the bombshell that we didn’t know was she resided in Japan for awhile. When asked… How did you like Japan…? The beauty said and I quote: “I stuck out like a sore thumb, I am a 5’10 Hispanic female, with dark features compared to Okinawa’s who are 5 ‘0 with fair skin”. That must have been a crazy and exciting experience being overseas. Now let’s get into a couple more questions so you can get to know this incredible woman.
So, Danille when did you first think of becoming a model?
When I was 16, I was scouted at the mall, and did a test shoot but I couldn't find myself to pursue modeling as serious as I should of, it wasn't till a year ago that I really got into modeling and got signed by a local agency, having my son and finding that he got diagnosed with autism really inspired me, for this now or never type of attitude, my son is my true muse.
Tell us how the team came up with this shoot?
I turned 30 about 3 weeks ago, and I wanted to celebrate my femininity and who I have become! Flaws and all... A relax feel in my natural skin was my inspiration.
What kind of shoots have you been working on over the last year?
Over the past year I have been working on beauty head shots, conceptual lace, head piece concepts to nude fine art shoots!
Who has been your favorite photographer so far and why?
Laura Saucedo of Inspire Boudoir, the photographer of this set- She is so amazing, and has a keen eye on capturing the female body!
Are you signed to an agency?
Yes a local agency here in Texas called TL Modeling Agency.
Who are some of you favorite models past or present?
Well let's see, past- Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford & Gisele Buendchen all classic beauties! I would say current would be Ashley Graham, she has really changed views on how the modeling world is, I love the message she brings with loving and accepting who you are in your own skin- because at the end of the day we model to make photos for the world to see and admire.
Who supplied the wardrobe for this shoot?
I have a vast collection of items that I buy or are given to me by stylist and local designers in the San Antonio area for current and future projects!
What do you consider the most important breaks in your career to date and why?
Being signed to a local agency which gives me great exposure and opportunities allowing me to get paid for what I love doing and the opportunity of being published. Both breaks are very gratifying and I am thankful for them!
Where can readers follow your career?
We would like to thank Danille for this exclusive interview and hope you all enjoy this great webtorial. Don't forget to show your support by following her great work and as always thank you for your time. -PQ
