Thanks so much for taking the time to speak with us today Cora. I know you’re having a wonderful time in Thailand, so we will be quick today. So for those who don’t know you yet, tell the Ryze Family how did you get involved with modeling?
Well, it all began when I saw a beautiful tattooed model with pink dread locks passing out fliers for a Vampire Model Casting! So my first modeling job was being a Vampire… and it’s still one of my favorites!
Many models get into the industry because of someone they may perhaps have looked up to. Did you have any role models in the industry that played an important part in this journey?
I was going to Queens University of Charlotte at the time I started modeling, and my role model then was actually a photographer – Lara Jade. I was minoring in Studio Art because I’ve always had a passion for photography, and Lara Jade’s main model was herself! She inspired me so much with her self portraits, and I even used self portraits as most of my photography projects in school. It was those self portrait projects I took to my first Model Casting.
You have traveled many places during your modeling career: What has been your favorite location to shoot in, so far, and why?
