Model Carly Erin O'Neil

Model Carly Erin O'Neil

Carly O’Neil is a New York based fashion, glamour and fine art model.

During the interview we talk about Agency/Commercial work vs. Freelance/Internet work. Body art on agency models. Agency models and nudity. “If her boob was in the picture, it was meant to be there.”

She talks about how being a model means having a presence on film, as well as being smart and strong. You really have to do it and not just kind of do.

Carly’s also a photographer and we talk about what its like making the change from in front to behind the camera. And why she chooses not to do a lot of model photography, and how it has effected her modeling.

This was an excellent interview, yes the audio could have been better but the content was spot on, your final question and Carly’s answer gave me a chill as I agree and strive to be that photographer/artist.
below is one of my images and gets you into my artistic works…

thanks you,

The Carly O’Neil interview sounds amazing, especially since she can talk from both a photographer’s and model’s perspective. I would ask how she senses other models feel knowing that they are being photographed by another model.

This is great to listen to, reminds me of the old days hearing Scavullo talk about models,
producers and agencies
