A homage to West Hollywood. We agree with these bitches 100%.
Introducing December’s model of the month Steven Dehler.
INTERVIEW QUESTIONS FOR STEVEN
1) Please tell us about yourself. where did u grow up? are you an only child?
I was born and raised in Simi Valley, CA – a city a short distance outside of Los Angeles. It was the typical suburban town; very family-oriented. I have an older brother who is an LA city firefighter. After college, I began to pursue modeling. I had modeled off and on for years, but I never made it a priority because I wanted to finish school first. So I feel pretty lucky to have done what I have so far and I look forward to doing more.
2) if you had only one word to describe yourself what would be?
Silly. Ha ha
3) Tell us about your typical day?
Well, modeling isn’t the most ‘typical’ career so every day can bring something different. But if I had to describe a typical day; I wake up, get a workout in, if I have a shoot that day I usually do a light workout beforehand, if I’m off then I usually get errands and stuff done, and then I workout a second time. My “day job” is go-go dancing at the Abbey in West Hollywood so that what my night usually is. You can find me there most nights.
4) what else would you be if you were not a model?
If I wasn’t currently modeling then I would probably still be in school. I’d be getting a masters degree of some sort. Other than modeling I always had an interest in music and architecture so I’d be getting my masters in one of those. Who knows, maybe I’ll go back someday.
5) What is your favorite part of your body?
Hmmm I would have to say my eyes. Not only because they’re blue but also because you can tell a lot about what a person thinking by the expression in their eyes. I’ve gotten pretty good at hiding that so you never know what I’m thinking. Adds a little mystery
6) what is your definition of happiness?
I would say my definition of happiness is success. You can take that however you’d like. For some success is getting that promotion they wanted or living in a home they love. You can’t be a driven person and not be a happy one. The more drive you have the more success you’ll receive and that I believe is a good base for happiness. I’d never let someone else dictate whether I’m happy or not.
7) if it was your last day on earth what would u do?
I’d spend it with my best friend
8) Who is your inspiration/role model?
There are a lot of people I get inspired by. I’m always keeping up with fashion and photography. It’s great to be able to work with people that inspire me as well. There are many photographers, models, designers, etc. that I’ve had the pleasure of being able to work with who’ve inspired me to be a better model.
9) What is your favorite holiday? and why?
Halloween. Who doesn’t love to dress up? Haha
10) What is your next project?
I have a few things that are in the works at the moment. I’m going to be working with a few photographers on some fun projects soon as well as possibly doing some acting in a project I can’t really go into detail about. But when it happens you’ll know.
11) what is your favorite sexual posission?
Haha um, I think I’ll keep that in the bedroom
12) are you single or taken?
13) what is your favorite part of a photo shoot? what is your least favorite?
My favorite part of a photoshoot is that moment when you just nail exactly what you were looking to do. It’s fun when the photographer gets excited because a good amount of the time you’re trying to bring his/her ideas to life. So when you get “the shot” it’s always a really good feeling. My least favorite is definitely the waiting part. Some shoots require a ton of preparation – especially working with female models. There’s the hair, makeup, styling, etc. In a shoot that lasts 5-6+ hours you probably only spend a total amount of an hour in front of the camera.
14) what are u currently working on? ether in your business or personal?
Well I feel like I answered the business aspect of what I’m currently working on in your previous question, but in my personal life I’m just keeping myself in shape – mentally and physically. Modeling (and go-go dancing) requires you to be in great shape at all times. Other than that I plan on doing some traveling in the future and hopefully work with some photographers abroad. I’ll keep you posted J
