Rhoma Pronounced "Row-Ma"
Rhoma Pronounced “Row-Ma”
How did you get started modeling?
I started shooting with Legacy Everlasting Photography in 2006 after he had shot with a few of my high school peers. He had noticed I had big photogenic eyes and he asked to do a few trade-fors. We ended up shooting for a few years after that.. I ended up having so much fun with it that I made a Model Mayhem account to get more tfs with other photographers.. now it's my full-time job.
What excites you about modeling?
Hahah getting them back. I mean, I love traveling, meeting new people, dressing up, doing my makeup, going out there and posing but actually seeing what you were doing... the option to improve yourself or stay the same... that's the best part.
What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?
I've taken a liking to lingerie lately. Lace bottoms and a thin, light shirt. Delicate, simple, sexy.
What are your least favorites?
Well most of what I shoot in is my own attire. It's when other people bring in clothes that are either too porn-star, too big, some look like they haven't been washed in ages... I'll rock anything they give me though with little to no complaints. That's a HUGE part about modeling... if it's in your comfort zone then do it with a smile.
What kind of shoots would you like to work on in the future?
I have so many that I'm already working on right now! A huge variety of glamour, scifi, art nude, creative and fashion to come. I would like to do some editorials and publications sometime soon. My height plays a huge role in what kind of work I'm offered so I mainly work on what other people need in their portfolios.
Are there any other creative mediums you work in?
I do some promo modeling at events as well as a bit of pin-up, lifestyle and alternative. Being multi-genre means being diverse. I aim to suit everyone's individual style in my own personal way.
What kind of music do you like?
OOh! Some of my favorite tracks are As The Rush Comes (Gabriel & Dresden Chill Out Mix) - Motorcycle and Engine Room - Perfect Lie. I love a wide variety of genres such as dubstep, acid jazz, blues, 90's, classical, and alternative. I used to book live music (acoustic to screamo). Bassnectar, Spongle, Thievery Corporation, Emily Wells are all bands you'll find me listening to often.
What do you like to do for fun?
Chiiiiillllllllll. Modeling is HECTIC so I like to kick back when I can. So I play a lot of video games, read, catch a show or a movie, have a smokeout. Whatever time will allow =]
