Soft Screams Magazine

Premiere Featured Model

 

Soft Screams Magazine presents Amanda Lin. The first featured model ever for Soft Screams Magazine.I resisted the concept of featuring a model in Soft Screams Magazine for several reasons. The primary reason being a lack of focus on our core demographic which are photographers. My new Editor-In-Chief Damali Conceptuals fought me the entire time, month after month. I finally acquiesced because I felt as though if Damali is going to be the Editor-In-Chief of this magazine I have to respect some of his insane decisions; such as featuring models in a Photographer’s magazine.

If that wasn’t bad enough, our new editor Tori, is supposed to be the editor for this new section of the magazine. Tori did a great job up until the follow up where she discovered that the featured model she chose was a wanted felon in three states for fraud, identity theft  and issuing bad checks. We discovered this on July 27th 2015, three days away from publication.  I was furious but at least fate had given me my way of not featuring a model. Then my worst nightmare occurred. Damali said that he could still salvage this section in 24 hours. Naturally I laughed at this because Damali is infamously late for everything. Then Damali tells me that he has a friend of his that always comes through for him. Naturally, I laughed at this as well because a “dependable model “is the truest definition of an oxymoron I have ever heard of. Only out of pure narcissism and my deep desire to ridicule him again out our next staff meeting did I bother to ask Damali who the model was, and he says ” Amanda Lin”.

Full disclosure, I hate Amanda Lin. Amanda Lin is the perfect package. Amanda Lin has the perfect shape, long beautiful hair and these sea green eyes with just a hint of frost on them which makes me want to devour her while my parents are watching. I do not hate Amanda Lin for her beauty because I am gorgeous, I am the Publisher of Soft Screams Magazine so I am surrounded by gorgeous women all of the time, and we all know that I LOVE gorgeous women. I hate Amanda Lin because ever since I partnered with Damali Conceptuals, she is the one model that he seems to have a crush on and that sickens me. Everybody knows how I feel about my Damali and she is the one crush that I cannot pull him from.  He denies it of course but a woman knows. I asked him prior to reading her interview, ” Why Amanda Lin? There are a stack of models sitting on your desk dying to be featured in this magazine and you chose Amanda without even looking at the stack”.

Damali said “I have never met a more professional model than Amanda Lin. I have worked with her for almost half a decade.  She is always early to every shoot we have ever had and she is utterly fearless. Amanda Lin will pose in frigid water in the winter, wear literally anything you ask her to wear without complaint, she will push the envelope no matter what the situation is, and she has the most insane “eye game” in the business. Whenever I feel trapped or nervous about a shoot or if I want to make the best impression I can on somebody, there is nobody in this entire industry that I trust more than Amanda Lin”.  I told him that sounds personal and he said ” Look, I won’t lie. One year she spent Thanksgiving with me and my family and some other year she welcomed me into her world by spending the 4th of July with her and her family. We used to be really good friends but she is moving onto bigger and better things and people and I respect that. So even though we are not really that “cool” anymore, she was still willing to drop whatever she was doing in her new busy life and helped me put together this feature and interview all in 24 hours. Name one person on our staff who could or would do that?”

 

Now I hate this bitch even more!

 

She really is a special person and not just as a model.  I speak for everyone at the magazine when I say how much we really appreciate how she sacrificed and worked her lickable tushy off to get this feature published professionally looking and on time within 24 hours. Amanda Lin deserves to be the first featured model of all times for Soft Screams Magazine not just because she is a super model which you will see in a moment, but read her interview. Soak in all of that personality,  sense of humor, down to earth morality and most of all professionalism. Amanda Lin didn’t bail this magazine out for the feature. (In fact, it sounded like Damali had to twist her arm)  She bailed this magazine out out of love and loyalty to her friend, a photographer she rarely speaks with anymore. We all know in this industry, qualities like that are scarce and sacred.

Therefore it is with the purest of pleasure and personal delight to present to all of you,

When and why did you get started?

I did my first runway at the age of 12 for a local Fashion Bug, but I really started modeling about 5 years ago. I love to be in front of the camera. It’s always exciting to get dolled up and play another person for a little while, that’s why I’m now starting to do some acting.

Who are some of your favorite models and designers, and why?

Tyra Banks is one of my favorite models. She has done so much for the industry and helped with the careers of so many models, anyone who gives back so much should be looked up to. I love Giorgio Armani, there something about putting on anything from his line that just makes me feel sexy. Also, the fact that he was the first designer to ban model with a BMI of less then 18 from walking in his runway shows makes him A OK in my book.

Out of all of the photos the photographer took of you, which is your favorite and why?

I have 2, one is a nude that was done just for me and will never see the pages of a magazine lol. It’s very raw and gritty but has such a beauty to it that should be shared with the world, but I’m greedy and keeping it for myself lol. The second one is a very classy shot that was taken after a runway show, it looks like I should be at the Kentucky Derby and reminds me of Audrey Hepburn whom I adore.

What do you dislike about modeling?

Waiting to see the end product. I’m like a kid the week before Christmas. Every day is filled with the excitement and anticipation of not knowing if what you’re getting is  socks from Grandma or that new game console all the kids are asking for!

What advice do you have for other aspiring models?

Never give up on your dreams. Don’t ever let someone tell you you’re not good enough, tall enough, skinny enough ect  to do it. This world is full of all kinds of different people and they all need to be represented!

What distinguishes a good model from a bad one?

Versatility! You need to be able to adapt to what the photographer or designer wants. Also no one likes a model that is late then complains the whole shoot for one reason or another. Know how to communicate the issue in a professional way.

What distinguishes a good photograph from a bad one?

Same thing as a model really. Professionalism, be on time, have the right equipment for the shoot and be able to make the model feel comfortable.

Share with us your funniest or most embarrassing modeling moment.

I got my period during an nude shoot and actually bled on the floor. Thankfully I had/have a great relationship with the photographer and we laughed it off and continued as a lingerie shoot.
