Josef

Who:

Josef Carmichael, 186.5 cm / 6’1.5″, British, born January 16th.

We Asked:

What have you learned since you started modelling?
“Before starting this job, I was full of prejudices. After my first shoot and fashion week. I realized that it is a job like any other, one that pushes you to become better every day. We must always question ourselves and our work if we want to become better. Now I see everything like a football player, lol. The most important thing is to stay myself, and show people my personality because that’s what will make the difference.”

What’s the most difficult thing you have ever done?
“It was when I left my family for the first time to come to Paris for my studies. It was complicated because I had to adapt my mind to the Parisian life & mood, and especially to doing everything by myself: cooking, washing my clothes, etc… ahhh.”

What is an issue or cause you are passionate about?
“I am an activist for animal causes and equality for women and men. I make a point of doing something about it. I come from a family where my mother has always been a model of virtue in my eyes. She is everything for me.”
