Introduce yourself with a few words? Who are you?
My name is Mike Meijer. I am 18 years old and I am enjoying life.

What are you hobbies and biggest passions?
My hobbies are fitness, football and swimming. My biggest passion is design and fashion.

When and how you started your modelling career? Were you scouted by somebody?
It all started a few weeks ago on a party of Models at work. During the party one of the scouts of Models at work spotted me and asked me if I was a model and if not, would I consider modelling for their agency.

Did modelling influence or change your life? If yes, how?
I am quite new in this model world but it made my life already change a bit. During shoots and other activities you get to know a lot of people. In my opinion it is really cool to talk about the life of other models and learn from it. I still remember one boy who was modelling all around the world! It inspires me to keep going forward and never give up.
Can you tell us what kind of campaigns you have shoot and for which brands?
So far, I only went to the studio for my portfolio and did a few examples for some big brands like Scotch and Soda. I think it won’t take long until I have my first official shoots. I get really motivated when I see that other models travel all around Europe and some of them even all around the world. My dream destination for work would be New York. I hope one day I will have a shoot on the top of one of the big skyscrapers with Manhattan on the background.

What is fashion for you? How would you describe your personal style? Where do you pull your inspiration from?
Fashion is really important for me. It is a way of showing who you are. My personal style is casual but sometimes I like to wear something special which is more exclusive. My inspiration comes from internet, magazines and especially the people around me. Amsterdam is a city full of fashion and design.
Give us a fact about you people may not know.
When I was younger I used to be a good goalkeeper.

What are your top priorities? What keeps you going?
The most important thing is my study. I am studying International business and languages. When I’m done with my study I’d like to work for a big international company or start my own international fashion company and make it a successful one.
Define happiness. What makes you laugh and what makes you happy?
Happiness is only real when you can share it with the people around you. My friends and family make me happy. They are the ones who support me every day again and I am really thankful for that. There is also another thing what makes me happy; dreaming is the most beautiful thing in life….. And remember… The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams

How do you see Life through your eyes?

Sometimes it is hard, but if you keep going one day you will be successful.

What is worth fighting for the efforts and the time?
My study, my family and of course my future.

3 songs from your playlist?
Sick Individuals – Lost & Found
Dre hazes – ik leef mijn eigen leven
Ben Howard – Keep your head up

If you could give a name of this moment of your life, how would this chapter be called?
Happy times in Amsterdam

How do you imagine the future and what does it hold for you?
I have to create my own future. The most important thing is that I keep focussing on my goals and never give up! If I just keep going as I do now it will be a good future with a lot of beautiful experiences.

If you could tell something to the whole world what it would be?
Don’t be afraid of being different, be afraid of being the same as everyone else.

Spotted Style meets Keven de Koning from De Boekers!

 malemodel

Yesterday we promised you seven male models and today we start with Keven de Koning! We had the privilege to be the first one who interviewed him! He is 18 years old, modelling for De Boekers and 2morrow! Studying Interactive Designer in Amsterdam, born in Dordrecht and living in Lelystad. Do you want to know more about Keven? Read the full interview!

Introduce yourself with a few words? Who are you?
I’m Keven and I’m 18 years old. I play soccer and I work hard for my study. People think I’m funny and that I’m a good person.

What are you hobbies and biggest passions?
My hobbies are drawing, playing soccer and being with my friends. My biggest passion is fitness. I workout a lot and I hope to get big enough to do shoots for Calvin Klein. But I think that will take a while.

When and how you started your modelling career? Were you scouted by somebody?
I won a model contest on Facebook and the photographer of that shoot, told me that I had a good face to be model. And a lot of other people said stuff like that too. So one day I send some pictures to one agency, but they didn’t respond. A few weeks later I send some pictures to De Boekers and they were really excited to meet me. So that’s how I started modelling.

Did modelling influence or change your life? If yes, how?
Modelling didn’t really change anything in my life. The only thing that did change was that I got more attention from girls because I am a model.

What is fashion for you? How would you describe your personal style? Where do you pull your inspiration from?
Fashion isn’t really that important to me. I just wear the clothes I like to wear.

Do you get to travel a lot for your work? If so what’s your favourite city that you have visited? Do you have a dream destination?
I don’t travel a lot for work. I have an agency in Milan and they want me to go there for a month or so. But I just can’t because of school. So I hope to get a lot of work here, in The Netherlands.
