June 2017 Model of the Month - Samantha P!

Model of the Month - Samantha P!

We are happy to announce our model of the month - Samantha P! Samantha is a super-fun model that we absolutely adore, and know you would too!

Long Island Models: How did you get started in this field?
Samantha P: My mom dabbled in a bit of modeling when she was younger before having me. She always had every fashion magazine under the sun in the house and I was obsessed with them. I started going to major agencies right out of high school and was eventually signed with an agency and sent off to Asia

Long Island Models: What are some of your favorite icons that have influenced you?
Samantha P: I was obsessed with Angelina Jolie from a young age. I loved her whole look and almost every photo of her. I also found the Photograher David Lachapelle through a shoot she did with him and loved his over the top pop art style. And on the complete other end of the spectrum Yves Saint Laurent for his classic French look always did it for me.

Long Island Models: Career highlights?
Samantha P: Maxim was a big one for me! I've struggled with body image issues for years so when they not only wanted to shoot me while I was in Asia but interview me as well I was ecstatic. Too bad the interview wasn't in English! I also shot for Hapers Bazzar and CosmoGirl while I was there and those were major highlights as well.

Long Island Models: Long term goals?

Samantha P: Be happy, healthy and maybe land a Neutrogena commercial! ;)
