What made you decide to commit modeling full-time? JS: To put it simply, because I ran out of money while in the Philippines! Thankfully though, my agency was very supportive in helping me get back on my feet again. I had no choice but to model in order to make my way back home to Australia.
JS: Honestly I had never thought about it in too much detail; however, it had always intrigued me. When I started, I had absolutely no idea and was thrown in the deep end by going on set with top photographers, stylists, designers and models. I wanted to know who I was working for and so I made sure to take the time to meet my employers and build relationships. I continue to find it very interesting how clothes shape our everyday lives.
Who is your favorite photographer? JS: Well, I’m not sure if I have a favorite photographer as every shoot is so different. However, I’ve had the pleasure of working with some I really admire—Sølve Sundsbø, Mark Segal and Alasdair McLellan, to name just a few.
What is the most exciting project you’ve been involved in? JS: My most exciting job was doing the movie for the Jean Paul Gaultier fragrance.
