A.G.E.: Professionally speaking, you work as a model, although you tell me that you have been a bit retired lately. How and what made you start in the modelling industry? Tell us about your ambitions as a model and what you mean by being retired.
J.J.L.G.: Yes, I work as a model, I started a long time ago when I was in college. I started hanging out with a friend who was a model, and he introduced me to a lot of people in the industry, including the owner of the agency he was with. He told me I had the potential to model, so I made the decision to join his agency, and that's how it all started. As a model, I always had the ambition to work with a well-known European brand, participate in campaigns, appear in commercials, and see a picture of myself in clothing stores or in advertisements. So far, the only thing left for me to achieve is to work with a well-known European brand. I have stepped back from modelling a bit because I have dedicated myself to another type of economic activity, OnlyFans, which in my opinion is somewhat related, just in a different way.
A.G.E.: Of the jobs you've done so far as a model, which one are you most proud of or what type of jobs motivate you the most?
J.J.L.G.: Once, there was a campaign I participated in for a Colombian brand called QUEST. I really liked that day because I felt like I gave it my all; we made a very cool video and some great photos, and I saw myself on the walls of a nationwide store for the first time. That day I felt very happy because I felt like I had achieved a goal I had in mind. I really enjoy working on clothing campaigns, but without a doubt, what I enjoy the most are fashion editorials. I love art, and when I model for an editorial, I feel like I'm modelling in a deeper artistic way, unlike when I do it for a commercial brand.
A.G.E.: You also love to travel, and your dream is to travel the world. Where does that dream come from, and why do you like to travel so much? What types of destinations are your favourites?
J.J.L.G.: Yes, I love travelling. Since I was a child, I have always been fascinated by the mysteries that surround this world. I loved watching Animal Planet, realizing that there are so many incredible animals of different sizes, colours, and shapes. I watched the History Channel, and I was amazed by the immense historical value that some places have, making them unique and recognized worldwide, like the pyramids of Egypt, Machu Picchu, the Great Wall of China, etc. Since then, I have dreamed of travelling the world, seeing and experiencing each of these magical places with the wonderful and rare creatures we have here on our planet Earth.
A.G.E.: You did a photo shoot with photographer Ale Ramirez for Yummyzine 5, and you were accompanied by Marin. You have a very good connection, and it shows that you had fun. How was this experience for you? Is this your first time taking nude photos?
J.J.L.G.: This experience was phenomenal for me. It was an honour to work with Alejo and Marín; both are very professional in what they do, and we had a wonderful synergy working together. Besides the good connection between us, the location was also incredible; the beaches of Sicily in Noto are beautiful and greatly contributed to the good result. It was my first time doing photos as a model outside of Colombia, so it was very exciting. I had done nude photos before, but it was the first time I did them for a magazine, and a recognized one like Yummy at that.
