There are models and muses. Job Schipper is both of them! He reshaped our perception of a male model and gave the kick off for spotting male models on www.spottedstyle.net! New model stars are rising all the time, but this one shines very bright and is called Job! The first male model that grabbed our attention was spotted a few months ago. Job has impressive character, intelligence and deep mind. In the short time between our first talks until now, he already did a lot of great work! Editorials, catwalk for Trussardi and look books are just part of the list of Job’s modeling achievements. He has a powerful presence in front of the camera. And he was our first chapter of our male model’s book and still one of the most interesting ones. Keep on following him to read his future story! After his work in Italy and Germany, we position him as one of the best rising Dutch models and recognizable faces! He puts a smile that just won’t quit on our Spotted Style face and this is only one of the many things for which we adore him, so we will keep on spotting him on his next journey! Job on top!
WHO ARE YOU?
My name is Job, 22 years old, Dutch, second of four kids, born and raised in Oud-Beijerland (little village close to Rotterdam), modeling for one year and a half whereof two months full-time.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES AND BIGGEST PASSIONS?
I love to travel, don’t avoid the kitchen to make a good meal, like all kind of sportive activities but prefer martial arts (boxing & kungfu which I stopped for modeling), can’t live without music and am always in the mood for a little party.
WHEN AND HOW YOU STARTED YOUR MODEL CAREER?
It all started after someone send photos of me to the agency ‘De Boekers’, based in Amsterdam, what became my mother-agency.
DID MODELING INFLUENCE OR CHANGE YOUR LIFE?
Yes definitely! Otherwise I had started another study. So now for me it’s a great escape from structurally/basic life and the ultimate opportunity to travel around the world.
WHAT IS FASHION FOR YOU? HOW DO YOU SUBSCRIBE YOUR STYLE? WHERE DO YOU PULL YOUR INSPIRATION FROM?
To be honest I’m a layman on the field of fashion. I like to dress myself well but didn’t keep myself busy with everything that was going on in fashion world so far. To be honest I have to confess that’s changing little by little through modeling.
I get inspired during my work and by everything I see and mix it all up the way I like it.
DO YOU GET TO TRAVEL A LOT FOR YOUR WORK? IF SO WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CITY YOU’VE VISITED? DO YOU HAVE A DREAM DESTINATION?
Actually I’m able to travel since I finished my study two months ago. Last two months I’ve been in Milan and currently in Germany for a job.
My dream destination: New-York.
GIVE US 5 FACTS ABOUT YOU PEOPLE MAY NOT KNOW:
1. I think I’m pretty dominant.
2. I love science and mathematics.
3. I’m a dreamer.

5. The easiest way to piss me of is injustice.
WHAT ARE YOUR PRIORITIES? WHAT KEEPS YOU GOING?
My priorities are my family, best friends and my dreams. I’m a dreamer so I’ve got a lot of them! 😉
DEFINE HAPPINESS. WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?
For me happiness is the warm tingling feeling that gives me a moment of absolute inner peace. The feeling where I think it’s all about.
Oddly enough it’s the small things that gives me that feeling. Having a deep conversation with my brother or friend, doing crazy stuff with my dad, giving a hug to my sister, watching a sunrise, listening to good music and so on.
HOW DO YOU SEE LIFE THROUGH YOUR EYES?
I think life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.
WHAT IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR THE EFFORTS AND THE TIME?
My priorities, so that’s the same answer as before: The people I love and my dreams.

IF YOU COULD GIVE A NAME TO THIS MOMENT OF LIFE, HOW WOULD THIS CHAPTER BE CALLED?
Haha that’s a good question! I think it’s only possible to name the chapters in the past of your life. You don’t know what life will bring you, so let’s call this chapter: ‘Under construction’.
HOW DO YOU IMAGINE YOUR FUTURE AND WHAT DOES IS HOLD FOR YOU?
In the past few months I signed at agencies in Spain, Denmark, Italy, Germany and there are some negotiations with other countries as well. I hope to work here a lot and travel as much as possible next years, but you never know how it’s going to be. We’ll see!
IF YOU COULD TELL SOMETHING TO THE WORLD, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Never let the noise of other people’s opinion drown out your own inner voice!
