pmm archives plus model
Our "Love Your Body" Issue is always one of our most popular, but this year it yielded an
overwhelming amount of positive feedback and it was all due to the editorial featuring plus -size
model Jennifer Maitland in the nude.affordable plus size clothes I sat with photographer, Victoria
Janashvili, who shot the amazing photos and who now happens to be a new fan of the plus size
industry. Her story is amazing, and this month, she shares how shooting plus size models
changed her life.
Maddy: Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Victoria: I was born in Russia and raised in London; I grew up there. I came to New York three
Maddy: Did you always want to be a photographer?
Victoria: I planned to become a lawyer or an economist. Never thought I could be a photographer
because my parents said this was not what people did for a living. It was always an interest for
me since I was a child.
Maddy: Totally did not expect that, how did you go from Economics to Photography?
Victoria: I was studying economics in London and was very frustrated, I wanted a different life.
I randomly met one of the best photographers in the world in London and he asked me to be an
assistant. I took him up on his offer and shared many experiences on set and eventually became
his studio manager. At this point I dropped out of school and went to school for photography while
I was working.
Maddy: Becoming a photographer is not easy to do and the competition is fierce.
Victoria: I learned very early on that what you need to do is be on set, work your behind off and
soak it all in. For me it took 5 years and watching people do it in order to be able to really
understand the imagery.
