#meetthemodel Osman Jalloh at AMCK by Ira Giorgetti

By Nathan Best In Blog, Carbon Copy, Meet the Model

Photographer Ira Giorgetti meets London-based Osman Jalloh at AMCK Models and shoots this portrait series for our #meetthemodel series and has a quick Q&A with our US Editor Nathan Best.

1. Hi Osman, How’s it going? How old are you and where are you from?
It goes well, and yourself? I am 18 and from Camden, London.

2. How did you get into modelling and did it always interest you?
I always had the idea of being a model yet I never properly pursued it. I missed around with some photographers and produced some quality pics but I really got into modelling after I was scouted by Patrick on my way home from taking pics with @RDCVisions.

4. Are you a constant selfie taker?

I only post selfies if I feel like I am popping e.g. my skin is glowing and the sky is clear blue with a hint of the sun for natural lighting. Ya get me?

5. Do you go out to clubs and are you a good dancer?
I am going to say I don’t go out because I have teachers who read this magazine and I have some overdue assignments. I am very good danc-er….these hips have rhythm.

6. What’s the best thing about having close friends?
Close friends provide a shoulder to cry on (metaphorically and literally) and blunt advice when necessary. Also, close friends provide a support base which really helps during moments of self-doubt and stress.

7. What are your favourite activities to do in your spare time?
I love sleeping. Sleep is amazing. I am a typical teenager. I love to
