上回，我们我们认识了巴西超模 Alexandre Cunha 的工作经验，这回，Alex 与我们分享他对潮流趋势的看法。
Alexandre Cunha（以下简称 Alex）：这是一个很有趣的点，因为社群媒体为更多人带来机会，使市场开始快速变化，而那正好是「时尚」所需要的，我想这是很自然的现象。但我敢肯定的是，没有人能透过「自拍」学会（模特儿）真正的工作，换言之，为了能给予客户和摄影师期待的照片，我们不是用这幺容易的方式学习！有些人或许可以，但非常少。大部份的模特儿并不清楚他们到底在做什幺，他们以为自己是那份工作的主角，而这是一个转折点——最终「产品呈现的效果」非常重要！那些了解情况的模特儿们，知道所有的工作都是为了呈现更全面的愿景，而不是只把自己黏在相片里，并且愿意与团队一起尽最大的努力来实现这个愿景，那些才是在职场上创造更长且成功的事业的人。
Alex: Its an interesting point because social media gives opportunities to more people and the market changes very fast and fashion needs it. Its natural I think. What I am sure is that nobody learn how to really work under selfies. So, to be able to give the picture that the client and the photographer are waiting from us, we don't learn so easily. Some people do. But only few. Most of the models don't really know what they are really doing, they think the job is about them. And this is a turning point. The attention for the final product is very important. The models that understands that all the jobs are a bigger picture then just them stamped "there" and work with the team in their best to make it happen, those are the ones that make a longer successful carrier in the business.
前阵子我读到一篇国外报导，内容提到现在的模特儿们至少需要在 Instagram 上拥有「一万个追随者（粉丝）」才能找到工作，长相、身材好已不单是模特儿的必备条件，「影响力」也成为业主挑选合作对象的考量要素，你对此有什幺看法？
Alex：很多人开始非常依赖他们在社群媒体上创造的图片，这令我有点担忧。我爱那分享好照片、影片和点子的想法，但可惜我们看到最多的是 Instagram 的奴隶，且主要是模特儿们。最大的问题点是我们如何处理那些「相片」，它们基本上是让我们得到工作的「工具」，但同时也是我们的私人生活，那幺我们到底要多开放才对呢？！而产业迫使的「保持 po 文」和「追随者（粉丝）」问题也有点恼人⋯⋯其结果是，大部份时间我们都看到一堆鸭子脸和无趣的照片。我认为 Instagram 带来的挖掘才艺奇人的这个现象本身很棒，确实，那里有非常多才华洋溢的人们，但就如我前面说的，一个客户若光靠追随着（粉丝）数量来决定雇用一个人，恐怕会使整个製作陷入险境，因为他录用的可能是一个 Instagram 怪胎。
Alex: I think its a bit concerning how lot's of people are turning very attached to the image that they create in social media. I love the idea of sharing nice pics, videos and ideas. But what we see a lot its a slavery of the Instagram. Mainly for the models. The question in how can we deal with our "image" that it is basically "the tool" to get jobs and our personal life. How open should we be?! And also the pression from the industry to be posting and following up with social its a bit annoying. The consequence is that we see duck faces and uninteresting pics most of the times. The phenomenon that Instagram gives to discover people and talents i think its great. And there are lots of talented people on it, But as I said, a client that books a model only because of the followers, can risk an entire production because he might be booking an Instagram freak.
Alex: With trust in what and in how I did things. I believe that the way I built my carrier with professionalism, respect and joy it was solid enough to keep my clients close and to keep working with new ones. The images that I proudly created with all the others involved in my carrier also are a value. They prove the clients that I can give them the job. This, we don't have when we are new or a trend.
Alex: I am sure that helped me to know how to deal with the money that I make. It also gave me a sense of competition and efficiency that I guess helped me during the way. Learning how to professionally approach and deal with people in a company, helped me to get along with the clients and colleagues on set.
Alex: I plan to have a long carrier, save some money, invest and open a school for kids. I wanna work with education later on. I believe that it's the only way we can change something. If i wasn't a model now, i would be an Economist or Accountant. I had a business education as my father is an accountant and my mom a psychologist.
Alex: I thought about that before but I don't think so. Fashion have been keeping me busy and I want to build more concretely later on these project about the school. School not focused on punishing the mistakes but based in a different system that boosts creativity.
