Knockout: Victoria James

Who’s energetic, fun, and beautiful beyond belief? That would be Victoria James. Having graced the cover of Hustler Magazine and lighting up the modeling industry, Victoria James has put herself in position to one of modeling’s sought after names. With her humble personality and endless sex appeal, Victoria will continue to win the hearts of anyone that lays eyes on her.

How did you get interested in modeling?

Victoria James: I was taking Valentine’s Day boudoir photos for my boyfriend and the photographer suggested I join Model Mayhem and consider modeling. 

Did you plan out on how you wanted your modeling career to go or were you more spontaneous?

Victoria James: I was totally, very spontaneous. I shot multiple times per week throughout Florida while I had my full-time teaching job to build up my portfolio. Then, when the school fired me for modeling on the side, publicity was through the roof. So many opportunities opened up for me as a result.

What kind of challenges or difficulties did you face early on in your career?

Victoria James: I had a hard time dealing with creepy “photographers” who simply wanted to take nude photos of me or sleep with me, not actually produce content we could use for self-promotion.

What were you naturally good at, and what did you have to work on to improve?

Victoria James:  I was naturally good at feeling comfortable in front of the camera, but I had to learn how to pose my body to show off my best assets.

You’ve been on the cover of Hustler Magazine. How was that experience, and what did it mean to you?

Victoria James:  It was one of the most amazing and professional experiences I have had to this day! I flew out to CA and stayed in West Hollywood. The day of the shoot, the creative director and editor drove me to the location which was absolutely gorgeous. We interviewed before hair and makeup and spent the rest of the day shooting. I was so tired afterward, I fell asleep at dinner. I spent the next couple days in West Hollywood before I flew home to South Florida.

Do you have a wish list of companies/publications that you want to work with, but haven’t yet?

Victoria James: Of course, I would love to be in HUSTLER again or even Playboy or FHM. 

Would you consider branching out to other things besides modeling?

Victoria James: I am also an entrepreneur and own a business that I work on during the week. 

When you’re not modeling, what do you enjoy doing?

Victoria James:  I love relaxing at the beach–under my umbrella, of course! You can’t get sunburnt as a model. But swimming in the ocean is one of my absolute favorites. I also enjoy hiking in the mountains when I am able to travel.

How have you changed as a person and as a model in recent years?

Victoria James: I think I continuously evolve each month and each year as a model. The way I prefer to move my body and the way I build my body in the gym are both reflections of the changes that occur inside me.

Are you inspired by anyone or anything?

Victoria James: I am inspired by all the beautiful glamour models out there today who keep bringing fire content for the rest of us to enjoy.

Do you regret or wish that you would have done anything differently in your career?

Victoria James: I took a break for a few years to do the home life. I wouldn’t say I regret that, but I wish I had pursued my modeling career further immediately following my Hustler cover. 

In the next few years, what would like to accomplish? 

Victoria James: I am just taking it one day at a time and seeing where it takes me. It’s really just a hobby that happens to make me some money right now and I am happy with where I am at. 

When people hear or see you, what do you want them to think about you?

Victoria James: That I am kind, humble, and just out to have a great time. Life is a precious gift, and I want to make the most of every moment.

What separates you and makes you stand out from other models? 

Victoria James: I think we all have our own unique looks from our body and facial features to our posing styles. I would say that I have a few signature poses that photographers continuously ask for in our shoots, and perhaps that is one thing. Another thing would be that I am usually on time, and I don’t like to cancel unless I absolutely have to. Models get a bad rap for being late and flaky. I respect my photographers’ time as I hope they will respect mine in return.

If you had a chance to get a message out to millions people, what would you say?

Victoria James: Don’t be an asshole. Life’s too short.

What can people expect to see from you in the future?

Victoria James: I hope a lot! Like I said, I am working hard to update my portfolio and collaborate with the best I can. So far, so good. I’m just going to keep grinding.
