20ish Questions with Bridgette LeBer

Updated: Oct 23, 2019

Eli: How did you get into modeling?

Bridgette: I became friends with a few photographers through riding that needed models so I agreed to pose for them. I didn’t start seriously pursuing modeling until a few months ago when I broke my hand in a motorcycle crash, and I pursued it as something to do. 

Eli What are your goals, what are you hoping to get out of modeling?

Bridgette: I would like to learn how to be better on camera and be able to better represent sponsors as an athlete/model. I think it’s so lame that most motorcycle models don’t actually ride. 

Eli: Do you have any nicknames?

Bridgette: My boyfriend calls me guppy. 

Eli: How would you describe your style?

Bridgette: Natural, classic, and “girl next door” but with a bit of attitude. 

Eli: Do you have a favorite shoot that you have done?

Bridgette: I really enjoyed working on fitness photography with you. Looking through the photos, I definitely have a lot to learn! 

Eli: My favorite shoot of yours would have to be your recent work with Michael Moore (https://mbmoorephoto.com)!

Eli: Do you have a “dream shoot”?

Bridgette: I’d love to product model for motorcycle companies. 

Eli Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?

Bridgette: I love extreme sports, and I do most of them. I used to be a pro downhill mountain bike racer, and I’ve transitioned into motorcycle racing. One thing most people don’t know is that I also really love fashion and love to design and create my own dresses. 

Eli: What are 5 things you “cant” live without?

Bridgette: My motorcycle, my puppy, my boyfriend, yoga, and (sigh) my iPhone. 

Eli: It sucks sometimes how connected to our phones we are these days... I

know I stare at it way too much during my day.

Eli: How do you spend your downtime when not working?

Bridgette: Pursuing my dreams....

Eli: Do you have a favorite designer or brand that you have worked with?

Bridgette: I really love representing my sponsors, especially Kali and Ryno Power, because they have been so good to me.

Eli: Do you have a fitness regimen you follow? If yes, describe it.

Bridgette: Get strong, race bikes, break bones, rehab, repeat.

Eli:  What are some pet peeves you have about photographers?

Bridgette: None really. I’m just grateful for the experience.

Eli: Who is somebody you admire professionally?

Bridgette: Lindsay Vonn

Eli: Oh geez, she is amazing.

Eli: What are some tips you would give to anyone wanting to start a career in modeling?

Bridgette: Just do it! Stop worrying about being “pretty enough” or “fit enough” just start! The photos will motivate you to improve.

Eli: What do you do other than modeling?

Bridgette: I’m a personal trainer, and working towards being a physical therapist someday. 

Eli: Give me an unpopular opinion you have.

Bridgette: Prius drivers suck. 

Eli: Fun fact, I drove a Prius to this shoot.....Not mine though, I let my Brother borrow my truck to move something. I actually agree with this, but starting to be replaced by Tesla drivers.

Eli: Describe a hardship you have had to overcome.

Bridgette: I was in a horribly abusive relationship once, and it really killed my confidence. I’m stronger now for it though. 

Eli: Tell me a bit about yourself that you feel the questions might not cover. 

Bridgette: -- I’ve always been a tomboy, and I’m literally just now learning how to be pretty. It’s fun to pursue my feminine side! 

Thanks so much!
