ERIKA ALBONETTI

Maybe it is difficult to believe since I do this kind of work but I have never been a self-confident person. I started to model only thanks to my agent who believed in me and all went well so finally during the years my self-confidence grew a little and now I am okay with myself. Sometimes my confidence wanes of course, but very rarely on set; I love my work and I always feel good and strong when I start to model. If it happens, I try to be professional and do my work as best as I can to make the client happy.

I have to tell the truth, I have always been comfortable in front of the camera from the first time I tried, and I was very surprised by this since I never thought about becoming a model before I tried. Maybe I had discovered an innate talent, since modeling is now an important part of my life. Of course, each shooting taught me something and improving professionally is a gradual process without an end.

Not really [anything special]! Of course, before a shoot I try to rest the night before and when I go to work with my manager we talk a little about the shooting, we analyze the photographer , the client, and we talk about the possible critical issues of the day. So I arrive on set mentally ready for what can happen.

I am not a fashionable girl outside the set. If you see me during my free time you will see that I do not follow any fashion rules. I love to do shopping but I buy only what I like without any particular criterions, but I really love the items that I wear during the shootings. Each stylist teaches me something and I am trying to improve my fashion taste.

One of the most challenging aspects of my work but one that I am truly grateful for is: to travel each day around Italy and the world. It could be weary sometimes so it is a challenge but I love to travel and know each day will bring new people and new situations. It is so important to open the mind, and I hate to get bored at home or always be in my town.

For my work, of course [I am optimistic about the future]. With my manager, we try to do our best each day without any distractions so I think we will see the results always in a better way. But I am not so optimistic about the future of my profession, the social networks and the new figures of the fashion blogs have created too much confusion in the mind of the people and for some brands.
