We had the good fortune of connecting with Shyane Faith Laas and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Shyane Faith, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I love being in front of the camera(s)! Fashion is a big reason of why I chose modeling as a full time career! From top to bottom , literally the hair , the makeup , the jewelry , the clothing, the shoes! There are so many different types of models & different types of modeling career paths to try! Meeting new photographers and getting to work with so many new faces is an amazing bonus to the industry! Lots of beauty & light in this world! Fashion modeling is a very creative career in color and active movement for motion photos and different angles. Practicing all types of facial expressions in the mirror, along with knowing the body angles that suit me best!
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I have a big eye for key colors and organization! I am very color coordinated , with my clothing , to my bedroom , to most of my decorations of my life:) Having an eye for neutral colors or a pop of color is a plus in modeling! I have created a lot of the ideas behind my modeling portfolio. I am super proud of myself for continuing to create modeling content for my brand Shyane Faith Laas & Shyane Faith Laas Closet! I have pushed so far out of my comfort zone from how shy I used to be when I was younger. I love connecting with all types of people and talking. It’s always fun to see how other people view things and what types of business and branding tips that have worked for them! I like to show my positive energy with the world and create through clothing and art!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would definitely be going to the beach! Multiple times out of the trip:) Let’s eat @ in n out , eggs n things , Carl’s Jr. , sushi , I love ice cream so we would go to cold stones too! I drink smoothies and water and juices!! The beach is an amazing place to check out. It is so peaceful and nice. I love the sand on my toes and the ocean waves. Sometimes sea shells even pop up too. Lost of interesting people along Venice beach and the walk! Many things to check out there and at Santa Monica pier along with lots of other beach’s along pch in Malibu!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My shoutout goes to my family! Most definitely my mom , dad , and brothers!
