I love my job and do it with a passion. I can express all my feelings when I'm doing photoshoots
The 2021 lockdowns had us climbing the walls, yet these images of Margot Gajewska shot by Sacha Leyendecker in Cologne give us a new appreciation for the great indoors. Based in Warsaw, Poland, Margot started her career in nude modelling six years ago and says she loves it so much that she’s shot every day since. Lucky us.
How was your with Sacha Leyendecker for Penthouse?
It has been a pleasure to work with Sacha Leyendecker. Moreover, he is a professional photographer. Sometimes it is obvious that there is no creativity in the work of a photographers. Their work is hard, but lacks a creative element. This shoot took place in Cologne and my experience with Sacha was different. He is an artist. Not every photographer is a photo artist.
What drew you to nude modelling?
I love my job and I do it with a passion. I can express all my feelings when I’m doing photoshoots. We are wired to have feelings. If we express these feelings in off-putting ways, this wiring can invite a disconnect in our relationships. By contrast, expressing feelings in a safe way can lead to our feeling more connected, especially to loved ones. Knowing how to express feelings tactfully is therefore vital if you want to feel close to people and to sustain your relationships.
When do you feel your sexiest?
When a man behaves like a real gentleman, makes compliments and treats me well – that makes me feel sexy.
What has been your most memorable photoshoot?
I have done a lot of cool shoots. The last memorable photoshoot I had was during a workshop in a mediaeval castle in Tuluza, France. The atmosphere in that place inspired a lot of creativity in me.
What type of person are you attracted to?
I prefer educated, smart, calm and careful people. I’m a very open-minded, social, friendly person with a charming smile.
If we lucky enough to take you on a date, where would we take you?
To an art gallery or the theatre.
What do you like to do for fun?
I like travelling very much. It’s like a hobby for me. I am always planning my next trip to go see the places I wish to know. It’s a wonderfully unique experience every time. Knowing different people and different cultures is something that teaches you so much about the world and it’s wonderful.
Where would you like to go next?
I am dreaming about a long trip to Norway.
What’s a motto you live by? Everything is possible. You just need to find the right approach.
