Jules Koun is a travelling Canadian model who loves girlie & preppy style with vintage touches. I hope you’ll enjoy the interview;

How did you fall in love with modeling?

I’ve always felt really comfortable being in front of the camera. I didn’t truly fall in love with modeling though until I started shooting fine art nudes. Seeing all the different ways I could twist and contort my body showed me that my body is something to be proud of for all the amazing things I can do with it.

How were you discovered?

I started modeling as a child, primarily doing fashion shows and commercial work. I lost my passion for it after a few years and ended up stopping completely. Fast forward to 2012, when my friend Becca was studying photography in college. Somehow she convinced me to pose for her, which ended up rekindling my love for being in front of the camera. I dedicated a full year to building a strong portfolio and contact network. Once I started getting demand in cities across Canada, I started traveling to work and haven’t looked back since.

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

Posing with live reptiles for a photography workshop a few years ago!

How would you define your personal style?

Very feminine. My closet is full of pastel colours, lace, and dresses.

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

I grew up right in the heart of the beautiful Niagara Region in Ontario. I think growing up in a smaller town definitely influenced my preference for comfort over fashion. It’s pretty rare to catch me in a pair of heels outside of a photo shoot.

Who is your style icon and why?

I’ve been obsessed with the show Riverdale, so I’m channeling a lot of Betty Cooper into my wardrobe lately. I just really love her girlie, preppy style with vintage touches.

Who is your favorite photographer and why?

I honestly don’t think I could narrow down to just one photographer as being my favourite. I draw inspiration from so many different photographers that it wouldn’t be fair to pick just one!

What advice would you give to aspiring models out there?

If you’re serious about getting into modeling, hire your first photographer. The insight and guidance an experienced photographer will provide a new model with are invaluable.

Trust your gut when something doesn’t feel right. When an offer seems too good to be true, it usually is.

Never let anyone take credit for your achievements or piggyback off of your success, but always ensure to give credit where credit is due.

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

For any photos I self-shoot, I edit using Lightroom for minor lighting adjustments.
