Let's talk about the humble beginning. The regular person who bit, tore and fought to get where they are - and never lost sight of the end goal. This issue is about those people. Individuals who decided to take their art and make a living off of it. NUDE Magazine grew from one simple notion - there's more than meets the eye. I want to see all of it, and I want to show it to you. So be inspired and never give up. After all, who doesn't love reading NUDE?

N NUDE: Why did you decide to become a model? Charlotte: I never really decided to be a model, modeling kind of chose me, by accident. I never thought I had what it took to be a working model so I never pursued it until I was scouted numerous times a ter Coachella. I was hesitant to sign at ﬁrst, but I'm so very happy in the place I am today.

NUDE: What’s the most challenging thing about being a model? Charlotte: Probably keeping your body in mint condition. I wish modeling allowed me to have o f weeks where I could binge out, but I always need to be ready for a client and to match my measurements. But at the same time, once I began modeling it really pushed me to be in the best physical condition, which is something I'd probably have no motivation to do without it. NUDE: Who's someone you would like to work with in the industry, and why? Charlotte: The model I’d love to work with would probably be Barbara Palvin. I think she's one of the most beautiful women in the world - at the same time I’d hate to stand next to her. The photographer I'd love to shoot with would be Russell James. His work is absolutely insane, not to mention he's shot all the models I look up to in the industry. 11
NUDE: Where does your style inspiration come from?
certain people. Self-conﬁdence, as cliche as this sounds, is
skirts, crop tops and platform shoes. Clueless has some of my
step into doing so was accepting myself and learning to be
Charlotte: My style is very 90’s vintage. I love slip dresses, mini
favorite outﬁts. I feel my style is heading toward the Jacqueline Kennedy vibe - I love her chicness and poise. I probably won't venture too much into Jackie K. until my 20’s though.
NUDE: What are your biggest tips on how to stay conﬁdent in yourself?
Charlotte: In modeling you face a lot of rejection. I don't even think the rejection is what made my self-conﬁdence go down at ﬁrst. It was seeing everyone around me rise higher than me.
I always thought I wasn't good enough or maybe I shouldn't be doing this job. I’ve slowly become better and better at accepting myself and accepting I'm never going to look like
hard to ﬁnd. I’m not quite sure I've mastered it but my ﬁrst happy with who I am and what I look like.
NUDE: How di ferent would your career be without the internet?
Charlotte: My career would be completely di ferent without the internet. I wouldn't know how to put myself out there. Back in the day before Instagram, Twitter and all these
platforms came out, modeling was purely based on your portfolio. Now it's so much more. Companies now hire girls
based on their social media presence. Girls like myself can even get scouted through their photos they post on the
internet. It's a whole new world and I think it completely changed the modeling industry.

NUDE: How long have you been shooting? Hanna: Since I was a child. I do remember my ďŹ rst photo competition though, I was the youngest there at nine years old. However, my real fascination with photography started later. At ďŹ rst I was producing photo shoots in which I participated as a model. I later realized that taking photos was my passion. NUDE: How has your photography changed since you started? Hanna: I see huge progress in my work, especially in techniques, but also in an esthetical way. I have grow and matured; I think many of my ideas were really good, but o ten I didn't have opportunities to make them work properly.

NUDE: Who is your favorite photographer, and how have you been in luenced by his/ her work? Hanna: To be honest, I know a lot of famous photographers. I had to pass an exam for history of photography and a huge number of those photographers in luenced my work, but I am also fascinated by young, not so well-known artists. I think they have a "fresh" perspective on art. Before, I thought Elliot Erwitt was a genius and I now think Sebastião Salgado is a magician who uses a camera instead of a wand.
NUDE: What have you accomplished so far in your career that you’re really proud of? Hanna: To be published in Nude Magazine! Also, I’m glad I decided to move from my small home town and start studying photography in the capital of Poland – Warsaw. NUDE: Where online can everyone keep up with your work?

N NUDE: How long have you been creating art? Jenapher: Since I was very young, I've loved to draw but never really knew it was what I wanted to do as a career until high school when I took a drawing and painting class. I discovered my niche and have been painting since 2010. Over the years, I pushed myself to become a better artist and have created my own style that I am content with.

NUDE: How has your art changed since you started? Jenapher: When I ďŹ rst started painting, I strived to do realistic portraits, and I would stay away from subjects I knew I couldnâ€™t do - still lifes and lowers. Knowing I had potential, my teachers pushed me to get out of my comfort zone. As of now, I still mainly paint portraits, but have expanded my color scheme. I love painting with bright, vibrant colors as well as making my portraits more abstract, as in my triple image series.

NUDE: Who is your favorite artist and how have you been in luenced by his/her work? Jenapher: I am very much in luenced by Alex Garant - I love her style. Her work makes your brain confused, but in a good way. I have incorporated her style into my triple image series, but strayed away from realism and added very bright, saturated colors as well as an emphasis on movement. NUDE: What have you accomplished so far that youâ€™re really proud of? Jenapher: I had the opportunity to design the Downey Library card and was also presented with a certiďŹ cate of recognition. NUDE: Where online can everyone keep up with your work? Jenapher: I am most active on my Instagram which is @jenaphermoore, and my Facebook page which is Jenapher Moore Art Page. I also have a website where people can purchase my art prints: moorejenapher.bigcartel.com.

NUDE: Is music something you always wanted to pursue? Don: Yes, it was my ﬁrst passion a ter high school. NUDE: Talking about your career, what projects are you currently working on? Don: I'm working on a seven song EP - hoping to release it soon. I'm also working on trying to pitch a couple TV show ideas. NUDE: Who inspires you musically? Don: Nas, Jay Z, Drake, J Cole, and Wale. NUDE: What is your dream collaboration? Don: I would love to work with Drake or Jay Z. NUDE: You act, model, and rap - how do you balance the three? Don: I usually do my shoots during the week, along with castings and ﬁlming, then studio at night and shows on the weekend. NUDE: What would you say is your favorite of the three? Don: Music is my main passion but I love acting as well. I look at modeling more as a platform to really push the rest of my goals. NUDE: What’s something not everyone knows about you? Don: That I'm a really good cook (haha). NUDE: How di ferent would your career be without the internet? Don: It would be a di ferent grind but I think my work would still be steady without the internet.

NUDE: Why did you decide to become a model? K: In high school I was always inspired by models on Instagram and wanted to do what they were doing, but I wasn't really conﬁdent about myself because of my acne. A ter high school I started blogging my outﬁts and I had to model in my clothes for my blog. A ter some time, I started to become more and more comfortable in front of the camera. People would see the photos and tell me over and over that I should model. I thought about it, and was like "Fuck it, I'm going to be a model." I want to show that females should embrace their insecurities and not have something so small stop them from doing what they want to do. NUDE: What’s the most challenging thing about being a model? K: Knowing that this is a competition is not easy. There are TONS of models out there - what makes me di ferent from them? There are so many models with curly hair, just like me, but to challenge myself I have to stand out from all of them and make a strong statement. NUDE: Where do you ﬁnd inspiration for your photoshoots? K: I come up with all my shoots o f the top of my head. It's all based on what I feel like doing. If I have the idea, I go a ter it and make it happen. NUDE: Where does your style inspiration come from? K: I have a couple of people I look up to for fashion trends. My main inspiration would be Rihanna - until the day I die she will be queen to me. Everything she does is amazing and di ferent. She starts trends and it's so

N original. Another person I look up to is @aalexisjae, her style and the way she models is so dope. I would low key buy her clothes. NUDE: What are your biggest tips on how to stay conﬁdent in yourself? K: First of all YOU have to love yourself. Every insecurity you have, embrace it. Know you're beautiful, especially with what you wear. You have to be so convinced that you look good and that you are comfortable in what you wear, because it’ll show and people around you will notice! Conﬁdence is key in fashion. You have to know what you are working with and show it to the world.

NUDE: How di ferent would your career be without the internet? K: When Instagram didn't exist, models would go to agencies, have a portfolio of photos and present them to agents. Now it's all based on how many followers you have and how many likes you are getting. Some modeling agencies scout their models through social media - it's all changing now.
Photographer interview with John Hildebrand Model interview with Lily Cristal
NUDE: How long have you been shooting? John: Rocking a camera in my hand since ’97. NUDE: How has your photography changed since you started? John: The biggest change was going from ﬁlm photography to digital. I rediscovered my passion for shooting because I get to shoot for myself and for my brand. I don’t have to worry about pleasing clients, just myself. NUDE: Who is your favorite photographer and how have you been in luenced by his/her work? John: There are so many talented photographers, I can’t say I have a favorite. I enjoy photographers who are pushing boundaries. NUDE: What have you accomplished so far in your
career that you’re really proud of? John: I’ve been lucky enough to work with some of my heroes and favorite brands. I’ve had the pleasure of traveling for work, but mainly I’m proud of being able to create and have others trust my vision. NUDE: Where online can everyone keep up with your work? John: Instagram, isn’t that where everyone posts their most up-to-date work? Who uses websites anymore? Find me at @johnhildebrandsicky. NUDE: Lastly, how di ferent would your career be without the internet? John: Relaxing, but it’s a love/hate relationship. Love because it’s so easy to reach people worldwide but the downside is I get distracted and overstimulated with so much available content and information.
NUDE: Why did you decide to become a model? Lily: With the dream of making money and becoming famous aside, I decided to focus on a modeling career that proves to society that this industry is not all about the stereotypes that are constantly being labeled on to models. My goal is to prove that a girl can stay true to herself and her body, all the while competing with 100 other girls at a casting. You should never have to change how you were created in order to ﬁt the prototype of what someone else wants. SELF LOVE IS KEY! NUDE: What’s the most challenging thing about being a model? Lily: No one was exaggerating when they warned me about the constant criticism this profession comes with; a ter being turned down ﬁve times a model gets chosen once. With that being said, it is hard to come home a ter a long day of castings feeling conﬁdent a ter looking around at all the other beautiful girls. However, my motto is “Just because she's pretty, does not mean that you aren’t.” As women, we need to empower each other, because if we don’t, who will? NUDE: Who's someone you would like to work with in the industry, and why?
Lily: I have watched Taylor Hill grow as a successful model since she had a following of 10k and now she has millions. I admire her ability to control her own career and stay true to herself. Many have told me we resemble one another and I would consider it an accomplishment if I got to walk down the runway next to her. NUDE: Where does your style inspiration come from? Lily: To be honest, I have no idea. One day I am BOHO, and the next I look like I jumped out of a Prada ad. I am just a naturally indecisive person when it comes to style, simply because style is always changing. NUDE: What are your biggest tips on how to stay conﬁdent in yourself? Lily: My biggest piece of advice is to look in the mirror every morning before leaving the house and tell yourself “I am a badass bitch.” NUDE: How di ferent would your career be without the internet? Lily: Gosh, without the internet would any of us be considered famous? I think if the internet never existed, it would be a true motivation to work until your face is on the cover of a magazine on your living room table.

NUDE: How long have you been shooting? Chelsea: I have been professionally shooting for almost four years, but I started when I was about 14. NUDE: How has your photography changed since you started? Chelsea: Oh my goodness. Well, for starters I wanted to be a photojournalist and work for NatGeo, traveling the world and documenting anything/everything I saw. But at some point I realized that wasn’t my life and started photographing friends of mine. I’ve always loved art and clothing and the perfect blend they make in the fashion world. I was constantly ﬁnding myself drawn to it and started working my way into that industry. So, that in and of itself is a big change, but the biggest change happened because I went back to school in 2014 and ﬁnally got the chance to learn proper techniques, pushing myself harder than ever before. It was the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. NUDE: Who is your favorite photographer, and how have you been in luenced by his/her work? Chelsea: I have a few, actually: Kat Irlin, Irving Penn, Parker Fitzgerald, Lindsay Adler, Ryan Plett, Richard Avedon, Henri Cartier Bresson (to name a few), but most

notably - Sarah Silver. She is hands down one of the most amazing photographers and humans. I was lucky enough to intern with her this past year (March-July 2016) and learned more then I can say. Her work is so incredibly beautiful and inspiring and not just because the photos are amazing, but because I’ve seen ﬁrsthand how she does everything. How she works with her clients and models, the way she interacts with her assistants/crew on set, the post production – everything. She taught me how to run a business, how to carry myself in this industry, and always supported me. I am a di ferent person/photographer because of her. NUDE: What have you accomplished so far in your career that you’re really proud of? Chelsea: Honestly, the thing I’m the most proud of is the fact that I’m working and people are actually interested in what I do. I create work that speaks to me and knowing other people in the world ﬁnd it interesting and want me to work with them is the greatest feeling. NUDE: Where online can everyone keep up with your work? Chelsea: You can ﬁnd me on Instagram/Snapchat/ Twitter @ imthebirdie or through my website www.chelseaclayton.com. NUDE: Lastly, how di ferent would your career be without the internet? Chelsea: I’m a huge fan of social media! It has been one of the biggest inspirations for me because it is endless. I can research ideas for shoots, ﬁnd other photographers that inspire my creativity, and I’ve been able to connect with amazing people around the world that push me and support me. I don’t think my business would be half of what it is without the internet. I’m very grateful for the wonderful things I’ve been able to do with it on my side.
