Shot by Baker: Miss Dea Capri

The World is Her Oyster

Port Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Dea is a pocket rocket with attitude… and elegance. A fish out of water some may say. Whilst her Oriental looks will distract you, her German accent will intrigue you. Working 9-5 was only holding the now-travelling freelance model down. Whilst she toured through Australia we met up and made magic during the setting sun along the beach line of Port Melbourne.

SbB: When did you know a career in modeling was for you?
DC: Many times. When I was 15 scouters asked me on the streets if I can join their agencies. After I’ve been often asked by photographers directly.

SbB: What genre of modeling do you enjoy most?
DC: I love fashion shoots with other models, I like trashy arty shoots and outdoor.

SbB: How hard is it to be a freelance model, and what challenges do you face?
DC: I take it easy. The biggest challenge every week for me is to not miss the flight, to find my shoot locations and hotels/transportations who allow dogs, because I try to keep her part of my life.

SbB: What are some of the most enjoyable destinations you have visited so far around the world while touring?
DC: Most fun I had in Sydney/ Melbourne. That time was crazy. London and NYC also gave me special memories. When it just comes to good vibes and less wild stories then it was Los Angeles. I felt so good.

SbB: In what circumstances, if at all, do you think nude art photography can be both artistic and also erotic? How do you draw the definition?
DC: When I started modeling I did loads of art nude, but since my tattoos, I’m more into glamour nude. Nude art means to be part of the picture, to complete it like a tree in the garden, whereas erotic means to express emotions but be more impressive and human.

SbB: How many tattoo pieces do you have altogether?
DC: 8, but will finish my arm sleeve very soon.

SbB: What’s the main influence behind your bodywork?
DC: Tattoos are sexy and make you look even more unique.

SbB: What do you think your tattoos say about you?
DC: My tats say that I have an eye, taste, and love the trashy cool look.

SbB: Come the weekend, what’s your favourite thing to do?
DC: Weekdays or weekend, I’m a freelancer, so for me it’s all the same. I never drink so I just wanna have a long dance night, waking up on the beach with my dog.
