1. What is your business name and website or blog link we can see your work on?
Hey ya my work is spread out in stores & other outlets… but until my upcoming new site gets all the “I’s” dotted & “t’s” crossed, people can view some of my work on Model Mayhem! www.modelmayhem.com/ShawnBruneau
2. How did you get started working in this industry?
I have a passion for the arts & decided to pursue modeling, acting, music & everything that breathed & looked like it. I found that not giving up was the key & relationship became my knob, so I looked for successful models, photographers, directors etc.. & I worked my way in with the crowd. I look back now & remember on several occasions how strangers had mistaken me for being a model… even though this didn’t compel me to pursue the industry, it later became one of my encouragements when I finally did. In all faucets of my life, it’s always been one step that led to another.
3. What is your favorite part about being a model?
You’re basically asking me to take my industry jargon’ished brain & paraphrase the famous biblical quote “It’s better to give than receive”. Seriously cuz besides the awesome people I meet & work with all the time, I get pretty pumped up when I can help other models & actors reach any form of success. If someone else gets published, good on them!
4. Tell us a bit about your most current creative project or your salon/agency!
I just modeled with a Kawasaki racer sports bike.. so awesome. No I didn’t get to ride it but I was sitting on it while it was running & yes, I felt the temptation but my pay check got the upper hand
5. Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?
I’m soon moving far away for a years worth of intense acting school, so as much as I will still be modeling here & there, acting in film is way more of a priority & that’s exactly where I wanna be… on film
6. What was your favorite look from our costume shoot?
Okay don’t judge me… I’d have to say Brave Heart! I had a sword in my hand, a freak’N amazing mullet wig on my head, a red sash over top my tucked in white puffy shirt & of coarse, the raddest kilt ever People want to know what I wore underneath my kilt & it’s quite simple to answer.. I wore my socks & shoes, haha.
7. If you could be anything for Halloween what would you be and why?
I would definitely want to be a tooth ferry. Reason is, is cuz my nephew just lost his front teeth & it’s a good excuse to give him a $20
