Interview with Lucas Queiroz in Male Model Scene
with photography by Leandro Ribeiro
The youngest model in our MODEL TALK is the promising LUCAS QUEIROZ who actually appeared in the pages of our magazine’s debut issue. We reunite with Lucas to talk about the start of his modeling career as well as role models and photo shoots.
--How did your model career start?
I started modeling at the end of 2014 when my agent Rodrigo Dutra discovered me on Facebook and he scheduled my photoshoot for my book and 3 months later I was in Milan.
--You’ve been modeling for a while; what is the best modelling advice you could give to guys just starting out?
To be focused, to not drive your attention away from the goals that you set for yourself, which is important for a model’s career because in this business it is very easy to lose yourself.
--Do you have any role models?
My mom and my dad and in the fashion business I look up to Brazilian top models Marlon Teixeira and Francisco Lachowski as well as legends such as Jon Kortajarena and David Gandy.
--Did becoming a model change your life in any way?
Whose life does not change after becoming a model? Leaving your country, your family and friends to travel all over the world by yourself, makes you learn how to be independent while getting in touch with different cultures, it is definitely a huge change. It is scary but exciting at the same time if you know what I mean.
--What was your favorite shoot so far?
The MMSCENE editorial, of course. Who would have thought that an editorial shot in my hometown in Brazil would end up in the first ever printed edition of an international magazine which has a huge importance in the Male Model Scene!
And I have to say my next favorite might be this shoot by Leandro Ribeiro.
--Do you have any interests besides modeling?
Yes, quite a few. I love music, I’m a drummer; I also love history and art.
--Name three places you would love to travel to.
I would love to travel to Bali, California and the United Kingdom.
I would have to say it is The Dark Knight Trilogy.
--Any guilty pleasures? Something that no one knows about you?
Well, there are some things in the 50 Shades of Gray that are very interesting. I can only say that!
--Five words that sum you up:
Honest, nerd, focused, happy, friend.
