Congrats on your feature for this SWIMWEAR SPECIAL EDITION Ralie & Jacques… please tell us how do you feel and what’s the emotions right now for the MONTH OF JANUARY 2022 for MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA?
MODEL RALIE JORDAAN – 2022 is a new year that brings a new me- and that is my superpower. I will strive to be myself and I am excited for the new adventures for 2022
PHOTOGRAPHER JACQUES BEUKES – I am very excited to be featured in this edition. It brings an exciting start to the new year.
Ralie this is your 2nd mollbabe model feature with us for MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA how do you feel being part of the MOLLBABE family and what makes this swimwear feature so special, please share?
I am happy that the hard work paid off.
“This feature is different from the previous one and it gave me the opportunity to do a new beach shoot, which is a lifelong dream come true.”
Give us a glimpse in how this shoot all got planned and what was that SPECIAL MOMENT that stood out for you from this photoshoot please share with us RALIE & JACQUES?
RALIE FROM A MODEL’S VIEW POINT – I traveled for a photoshoot for my agency, Model Management. Jacques and I have been friends for many years and he lives close by.
So, we agreed to do an unplanned shoot while we had the opportunity. The special moment for me would be when I walked onto the beach and could not believe how stunning the location was. It got me very excited for the shoot.
JACQUES FROM A PHOTOGRAPHER’S VIEW POINT – I would have to say the shoot was unplanned. Ralie and I wanted to do a shoot for many years, but living very far apart has always been a problem.
When the opportunity came along, we made the best of the time we had and I think the results came out pretty well. The moment that would always stay with me is hiking up to the shoot location at 4am to beat the sunrise and avoid the tide.
PHOTO SHOOT location wise what made this location so special for you as a MODEL & PHOTOGRAPHER, in other words tell us what makes this location stand out from all the rest, share with us your thoughts?
RALIE FROM A MODEL’S VIEW POINT – It was the first time for me on those specific beaches and the scenery totally blew me away. Walking in cold water at 4am to capture those moments.
JACQUES FROM A PHOTOGRAPHER’S VIEW POINT – If you live close to these spots as a photographer you always try to plan or visualize the potential. It is generally easy to take beauty for granted if you get used to it. But these rock formations just inspired me and I felt like I just had to do a shoot there.
Jacques give us a quick background bio on where and how your LOVE & PASSION for photography all started in a 4 sentence BIO?
My love for photography started years ago when I was a Nature guide. I used my mother’s camera to take photos of the wildlife and that passion has stayed with me ever since. From there I studied photography and had the opportunity to work internationally on cruise ships as a photographer.
Immortalizing a single moment that might never happen again, whether it be a baby elephant struggling with its trunk or a model posing on a stunning backdrop, will always be a passion.
Ralie back to you how would you describe the PHOTOGRAPHY work of photographer Jacques in 3 words?
“Perfectionist (detail oriented), Creative, Unique!”
Ralie we all have an IDOL OR INSPIRATION we all look up to in life… whom is your MODELING INSPIRATION in this industry and why do you say so?
“Adriana Lima has always been my inspiration. She was a Victoria’s Secret Angel who always had the ability to make any outfit look absolutely stunning. Her hard work will inspire me and other new models for many years.”
Ralie… #TheChatterTopic of the day “FASHION THAT IS COMFY TO WEAR AND THAT LOOKS GOOD AND THAT HAS AN IMPACT STATEMENT IN WEARING IT”, Give us your view on this statement in other words what is your FASHION STATEMENT LOOK that makes you feel comfy confident, sexy, looks good and will make an impact wearing it for the year of 2022?
I feel every woman would feel comfortable and sexy in whatever clothes shows off their best features. As for myself, I love short skirts with high heels, high-waisted jeans and crop tops. I also love sexy underwear. If I wear sexy underwear, I feel sexy.
