How did you start your modelling career?
My aunt Xandra scouted me, she was a model herself for many years in the 80s and 90s and now she has her own agency (Xandra van Rooijen Management), so it’s all in the family. She brought me to Yannick @ Alpha Male at the end of September last year.
Did modelling change your life?
For now not really, I’m very realistic about it, but maybe in the future. I already did a lot of sports and lived healthy before I started modelling.
Do you walk fashion shows?
Yes, I did a show at the Amsterdam Fashion Week in January. I walked for the Swedish brand Army of Me, which was great to do. I did the show with my cousin Simon and 9 other boys of Alpha Male.

One thing that you love most about modelling?
I like the work, but most of all I like the photos which are taken. It is nice to build a portfolio and see all those different photos of yourself.
What is fashion for you? How would you describe your own style?
Fashion is very important to me, you can express yourself without having to say anything! My own style is basic, I like to walk in a jeans and a shirt with sneakers.
What is your musthave for the season?
A t-shirt from Balr.
What was you’re favourite shoot or campaign so far, why?
I like all my shoots because they are all so different. A few months ago I did a shoot with photographer Ferry van der Nat. He makes great pictures, the styling was cool and I did the shoot together with my brother Maarten, which was fun too. I started modelling only 5 months ago, so I haven’t done any campaigns. Yet.
A fact about you that we don’t know?
I have a little brother, Maarten and a cousin, Simon, that are both models at Alpha Male too. Like I said before, it’s all in the family.
Who is your favourite model?
The things that are worth fighting for are?
Good grades at school. This year I have my exams and I hope to graduate so I can do my first show season in June.
What does the future hold for you?
At this point I still want to become a sport teacher. And during this study I hope I will work as a model as well. After my high school exams this year I’m probably going to Paris for the Fashion Week and I hope to also go to London and Milan.
