Emil, 18, finished high school this year and is from a small town in the Western region of Slovakia that borders with Czechia. He plays (European) football for his local team and enjoys traveling. So far he’s been to England, Spain, Italy, Belgium and Turkey. Most of the time Emil comes across as soft-spoken and polite, but he can also be quite assertive and there is a strong personality behind his “nice boy” face.
We met up for a coffee a couple of weeks prior to the photoshoot. Neither of us had much time, but we got good vibes from one another and things went very smoothly from then on. During the outdoor portion of the photoshoot, it was a bit colder than we had expected, but I think Emil made the best out of it, in spite of his initial discomfort.
