Today our special feature is on Elissa Yang
“Hi I’m known as Miss Panda but prefer to be called Elissa Yang. I’ve been an aspiring model for about two and a half years, whenever I can squeeze in a shoot in-between school and work. I love modeling for several reasons: the challenges of being my own manager, accountant, booking agent, wardrobe stylist as well as makeup artist. I love modeling because it is a great creative outlet for me. I’m currently a college student one year away from my AA. I hope you enjoy my feature and hopefully get to know more about me”
Was modeling something you always wanted to do when you were younger?
Well, Yes, when I saw my first Victoria Secret fashion show I fell in love and ever since its been my goal.
How did you get your first modeling assignment? What was it like? Were you nervous?
It took me a long time since I managed myself and I had to self teach myself about everything. Model Mayhem helped a lot!
What types of modeling styles do you enjoy doing the most?
I love to do fashion and fun shoots because its more like me and my personality.
Are there any models, photographers that you admire.or inspire you?
I love Adriana Lima and Alex Lim’s work. He’s a local photographer in Seattle.
Have there been any shoots that have been difficult? Any embarrassing moments you would like to share with us?
haha. I started my period once while I was shooting, lol. I personally love difficult shoots because I love a challenge.
How closely do you work with the photographers, MUA and stylists?
If I really like the art we create I mainly have one photographer I work with, Brett Fish.
What do you think is your best asset and your worst?
My best assets are my legs and my smile. Not to be conceited but I love every part of me.
Were there any tips you received that made an impression on what you needed to do to become successful?
Yes. that I should avoid the glamour scene since my body is made more for the fashion industry.
Is there anything that you haven’t accomplished that you would like to?
Yes there are many things I want to accomplish and haven’t, like being in tuner magazines and traveling the world for shoots.
Are you working on any projects lately?
I am actually working on my website and possible clothing line as well as entry into Maxim Home Town Hottie.
