Daniel Kostadinov is a Bulgarian model and fashion influencer.

I hope you’ll enjoy the interview;

How did you fall in love with modeling?

Well… that was like 8 years ago i was walking on the street and a book manager came to me and ask me if i want to try in modeling industry … the rest is history 🙂

What’s one of the most interesting shoots that you’ve done?

Oh that’s a very hard question, cause they are so much and all of them are interesting and really exiting, but one of the most interesting shoots was with a photographer named Jamtul if i recall his name right and mostly because of the fact he was shooting for Vogue at that time and i couldn’t believe the the privilege i had in that moment .

How would you define your personal style?

Now i’m not sure how to answer ,cause i’m chameleon as it comes to my personal style,but i can say i prefer the street style.


Where did you grow up? How have your roots influenced your sense of style?

I grew up in a small town in Bulgaria named *Haskovo with my family (it’s in Europe,for all who never heard of it ,very often i’m asked in which state it is in USA ) .If i have to be honest my passion for fashion came when i moved to Sofia the capital of Bulgaria and i just started to realize i need some change in my style…

Who is your style icon and why?

Now i know some of your readers will say that i’m playing it a “big deal”,but i really don’t have idols,icons etc…

Who is your favorite photographer and why?

That’s easy :Mario Testino !

What advice would you give to aspiring models out there?

  • Skip the modelling “classes”. Save your time and money. Learning how to pose comes with experience and every model develops their own style over the years. A runway class may be useful for models doing shows, especially with a reputable coach. But these classes should be arranged through your agency, as they’ll have specific objectives in mind and will want you to work only with a reputable coach.
  • If you have to choose between a sub-par agency, and no agency at all, go with the latter… If you have the potential to be successful, a great agency will eventually snap you up. Keep contacting good agencies in different cities over months, maybe years. Agencies sign models they see as marketable and your look may not be right at the time but could be years later, especially if you’re planning on doing commercial work.
  • Usually the things that limit us in modelling are aspects of our physical selves that we can and need not change. Accept that modelling may not be in the cards for you, and that’s okay! You know what may be in the cards for you? Literally any other job in the world, including those with greater financial security, longevity, and personal fulfillment. You can’t study your way into a modelling career. Modelling for a certain amount of time doesn’t guarantee a career either. If the industry doesn’t want you, find another one that does.

Do you edit your own photos? If yes, which programs do you use?

Yes i do,with the years i had to learn that too. Actually i found out it’s something that i enjoy and relaxes me quite much . I do prefer Photoshop , Lightroom CC
