Join us as we travel to Nigel, Jamaica where we’re spending the sunset with Sloan Summers. Photography by Martin Dupuis and shot exclusively for GMM. Let’s get to know Sloan;
GMM: Hey Sloan, welcome to GMM! Please take a moment and tell us about you?
Sloan Summers: Well I was born in Vancouver, BC but now happily residing in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. I’m a Bar Tender/Phant Girl that is 100% Canadian! My measurements are 26C-24-34, with Cute, funny, sexy, spunky and inspiring as being the best words to describe me. I’m an Aries with Taurus traits. Born on the cusp of Aries and Taurus. I can for sure tell that my signs are both driven by such stern wild beast. Gives me the power to stay true to myself, be blunt and stand up when I need to. Aries is also known as a born leader, I see myself through those eyes as well. My positive perspective is my best asset, but I also get compliments on my eyes and my ass.
GMM: How did you get started in modeling?
Modeling was something that I had always been interested in. I think it was Maxim magazine that really inspired my creative side to indulge in the glamour side. I had a great hometown photographer friend that had the same drive as me, so we started to create and then after that the rest just started to fall into place. I wanted to model so I made it happen.
GMM:Are you signed with an agency? Sloan Summers: Nope, I’m a freelance model
GMM:What do you enjoy most about modeling? Sloan Summers: The different places I get to go, the amazing people I get to meet and of course the epic images we create together.
GMM:What is the funniest thing to happen to you on a shoot? Sloan Summers: Can’t really think of anything… every shoot has been a blast tho!
GMM:What are the top three things you like to shoot? Sloan Summers: Glamour, calendar and of course bikini
GMM:Do you enjoy the constant attention and adoration that comes with being a glamour model? Sloan Summers: I definitely enjoy it to an extent, I appreciate and adore my fans, as well as the love and support they give me.
GMM:Where do you want your career to be in two years? Sloan Summers: I would love to run and organize my own Canadian Shoot outs and adventure tours!
GMM:What are some of your hidden talents other than modeling? Sloan Summers: I’m very creative and artistic. I love to create my own jewellery, draw, write and inspire other people as well. One day I would love to publish an inspirational quote book.
GMM:Take us through your getting ready to model routine? Sloan Summers: Haha, that would take up a whole book. Just being prepared for your shoot is the #1 priority. I always make sure I ask the person I’m working with the proper questions to make sure I’m fully prepared for the shoot. It you don’t know what is needed, you make yourself look sloppy and unprofessional. I always have a checklist of what I need so I never forget anything. Lashes, Hair, nails, make-up and wardrobe on point. Oh, don’t forget about those squats and have a nice tan too. Having a good glow helps make the body look more defined. The one last thing that I like to always include is a nice jewellery piece. It really adds to the images and makes them have that extra added touch.
GMM:What is the best info you can give a new model? Sloan Summers: You are your biggest critic, you must be your biggest fan and inspiration. Believe in yourself, your message and gift. We are going to face many obstacles along the way and it will seem like some days what is the point of it.. but just remember you’ve got this and this is your dream.
GMM:As a model, what would you say has been your biggest obstacle? Sloan Summers: Now a days as a model it seems like it doesn’t matter how good your work is, all that some people care about is how many numbers of followers you have on social media.
GMM: If you had to walk away from modeling today, what memory would you take from it? Sloan Summers: Every person and friend that I have met in my years as a model I wouldn’t give up for anything. Every moment that we have created together has been priceless and unforgettable. We may have the pictures but it’s the behind scenes, the one on ones and connections that I keep closest to my heart.
GMM: If you had to walk away, what would you like to be remembered most for? Sloan Summers: My addicting energy
GMM: What, if anything, did we leave out that you want your fans to know? Sloan Summers: Thank you so much for all of the love!
Remember to Stay Gold and never stop chasing those dreams.
