Photo by Russell Perkins; MUA/Hair: Tamanna Roashan; Model: Sabrina MareeAVIVA: Have you always wanted to be a model or did you have other career aspirations when you were younger?
SABRINA MAREE: I always wanted some kind of limelight... Modeling, acting. I grew up doing vaulting, gymnastics/dance on horseback, where I first learned how playing this other person could be so satisfying and freeing. I like having a back up plan in my education, but my heart is in entertainment.
AVIVA: What excites you the most about modeling?
SM: I like playing dress up, sitting in the MUA chair, creating something I see concrete results in. Growing and challenging myself. Proving people wrong about what my limitations are.
AVIVA: What career achievements are you most proud of?
SM: Penthouse Pet is my favorite achievement and has resulted in the most regular dependable work. I love the company and the girls, especially working the events.
AVIVA: What piece of advice would you give to aspiring models who would like to get published work?
SM: Go slow, have a back up method of income so you don't have to do anything you don't want to. Don't depend on agents, seek out the specific things you want to accomplish and meet the people that can make it happen. If it doesn't happen the first time keep trying.
AVIVA: Besides your look, what else do you believe is crucial for success as a model?
SM: I think adaptability, personality, who you know and a strong sense of who you are will make or break you.
AVIVA: What is your favorite type of photoshoot to do?
SM: I like to work with my favorite photographers, more than anything. More than a specific style.
SM: I moved in with a male model I worked with on a lingerie catalogue shoot (for two weeks). On a music video shoot I ended up staying up all night with one of the musicians having one of the best conversations of my life, drinking Jack. I love the people modeling brings me in contact with. Emotional, intense, real artists. I stayed up for 12 hours shooting random stuff with one of the most prolific shock rockers of all time, on antique cameras, after meeting him through an MM member on a random Hollywood night out
AVIVA: What do you look for in a photographer before shooting with him/her?
SM: I am pretty open-minded about who I shoot with. I prefer people who are going to result in some publication or tear sheet. I don't ever trade for tear sheets. If they make money, I make money.
AVIVA: Do you have any additional comments?
SM: Go slow!!! Don't jump into things.
