Ashtrayheart is a gothic/alternative model based in Rendsburg, Germany.


Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in alternative modeling?

Ashtrayheart: I simply saw beautiful and professional pictures of some gothic girls and thought 'maan I want such pretty pictures too!' So I got an account on a german modelpage and soon I had my first photo shoot, which was super bad, but I got to know some really good photographers and I can call some of them my friends now! The very first photo shoot I had was in 2007. In 2010 it became my passion and my way to express myself.

Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?

Ashtrayheart: I am only 1,65 m tall and I have a pretty normal figure. :)

Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand out from others?

Ashtrayheart: Well, I don't like calling myself a model, because that's not what I do. (facebook didnt let me give my page a one word name, so I had to put the model in it. But I think models can only stand out from others, when they have their own style and it comes through in their work.

Sinical Magazine: What is the most interesting thing that has happened to you as a model?

Ashtrayheart: Oh there are a lot of interesting things happening everytime! It's always wonderful to make an idea come true in a picture.  What's always interesting is of course the travelling. Seeing lots of cool locations and taking pictures! And I remember when I was grocery shopping one day and a girl came up to me saying 'you are the model right?! I like your page and your pictures are sooo cool!' I was a bit shocked but it was so cool! I am always amazed by all the people who like what I do. That makes me very happy!

Sinical Magazine: Who are some photographers you've worked with and who are some you would like to work with?

Ashtrayheart: I have worked a lot of times with Heiner Seemann. We are a good team and we also became friends. Steffi Baade is also one of my favourite photographers. Her pictures are so emotional and I love to work with her. I've also worked a lot of times with Mathias Bannick. He was one of the first photographers I've worked with. Carsten Tolkmit and Deniz Xenia too! Last year I had a shooting with Alice bizarre make up artist and the photographer Al Overdrive in London. That was quite cool and a great expeariance! If I'd get the chance, I'd like to work with Scott cole. He's very talented and I like the style of his works.

Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what is your main fetish?

Ashtrayheart: I guess plateauboots and blazers. Boring, eh?

Sinical Magazine: Who are some of your favorite designers?

Ashtrayheart: Uuuhm. I dont know any designers... All my outfits are mostly from fleamarkets or selfmade :)

Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?

Ashtrayheart: I like all kinds of music! I really like Rockmusic and electronic sounds. I guess gothmusic is my favorite but I also like listening to popmusic. As long as the music does something good to me, I dont care if its Britney Spears singing to me or if its an old Depeche mode song. (I love Britney btw *-*)

Sinical Magazine: What is the alt/fetish scene like in your city?

Ashtrayheart: I live in a very small city. To see people like me is rare. I guess I am pretty lonley here, because people are still shocked when they pass my way.

Sinical Magazine: Where can Sinical readers see more of your work?

Ashtrayheart: Most of it is on my Facebook-page, plus a lot of private and backstage-pictures:

I also have Deviantart:
