- Name: Tom Oosterhof
- Agency: Red 11
How did you get into modelling?
Photographer Karen Ishiguro approached me via Facebook! She said I should give it a go. I have a friend at Red 11 who recommended the agency to me. That was about a year and a half ago.
Favourite modelling job so far?
I did a Hallensteins campaign a while ago. We danced around the beach, sat in cool cars. It was great fun, paid, and they had all the food you can imagine. The spread was amazing. One of my other favourites was this Zambesi charity show I walked in. It was my first show.
Dream modelling job?
I want to book a Zambesi campaign. Or Prada…
Dream modelling destination?
I want to go to London and New York.
What do you love about modelling, and what do you hate about it?
Um…. I like the publicity, but how bad does that sound?! Does that sound bad? I mean seeing yourself in a magazine or on a billboard – it makes the parents proud. I don’t hate anything about modelling, I’m struggling. Maybe the tax you have to pay. The rejections, ridiculous casting times – none of that really bothers me.
