model feature: krystall schott

A cali babe that models full time, takes online classes, drives a smart car, has a pet snake AND makes amazing custom enameled jewelry? Major girl crushing on Krystall Schott with Photogenics. Oh and did I mention she's only 17? Last week I tagged along on her trip to Kit Kraft art supply store in the valley for some adventuring and pictures. Models are more than just a pretty picture so here's the pics AND interview! As always full pictures on my photo blog

Krystall brought an awesome assortment of clothes for our adventure like a pair of vintage blue Italian oxfords and a handmade maroon skirt with real gold accents handmade in India...
R: Describe your personal style
K: I don't take style too seriously. I always dress a little bit off the wall and have fun with it. Right now I really like pieces from other cultures.
Can you tell it was 120 degrees?

I met Krystall while shooting an intense day-long editorial in death valley almost two years ago. 5 am call time, five hour drive out to the desert, middle of summer, 120 degrees and makeup meltdowns. But hey, we definetley got the shot! 
R: Remember that desert shoot?
K: Yeah...that was a really interesting day. (Laughing) It was way too hot and miserable but I'm glad we were working with awesome people. That made it pretty fun!

Modeling gives girls such a unique life experience and exposure to so many different people, places and cultures so I always love hearing about future plans. Gotta love a girl with beauty and brains.
R: Plans after modeling?
K: I'm still working on my plans but at the moment I know I'm going to get some kind of degree. I'm just not sure whether it will be math/science or art or business..or perhaps all of them?! Maybe I'll be some kind of artistic engineer?

R: Tell me about your pet snake!
K: Ah yes, Fred. Well Fred is a Kenyan Sand Boa and she is Female. A lot people say they are afraid of snakes but then I show them her and they think she is cute, so I think it's safe to say she's pretty cute (small and fat, 16 inches long). I like to take her with me places, she has her own little travel box. She is very very docile and friendly.

R: Car jams?
K: I listen to everything. I'm really into old rock and roll (The Doors, Cream, Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash, etc. and Jack White which is not old but lets count him too) but I have CD's with just about every genre.  

R: Got a motto? Words to live by?
K: Do everything you love, be yourself and you will be unique. That along with treating people right is really all that matters in life. Oh and if you ever get bored do something random(dancing is good).
