It is a remunerative career option which involves long hours of shooting in outdoor locations and a lot of enjoyment.

And one such woman who lives up to all these attributes is Az Nosrati. This hazel blue eye colored girl with an attractive personality can pounce on anyone’s heart. This Dubai based half Armenian/persian girl started modeling at the age of 17, therefore living this lifestyle since last 12 years. “Modeling came naturally to me. I didn’t choose it but I think it chose me. Actually it all started like going to events for modeling, walking the catwalk, posing in front of the camera when I was 17. Modeling is neither my work nor my hobby, instead it’s my lifestyle. I choose my wardrobe, I know how to style, how to pose, what to wear, what to not. I really love what I do” says Az.

If you love dance, this art form can always be present in your life one way or another. It is a powerful tool to help you lift your mood and find a purpose in life. I don’t make a lot of dancing videos because of a busy schedule but many dancing projects are lined up & coming next year and I am looking forward to that.”
