"Standing in front of the camera puts me on the spot - like how I like to take on life.  Starting out, it put me in an awkward position, not knowing how to satisfy what the photographer needs; though instinctively, I saw this as a challenge and I owned the situation.  Exuding both power and elegance are in the basics of my day. And for modeling, I always just have to show the perfect balance."

- Bernhard Ashauer

That is how 19-year old Filipino-German model Bernhard Marc Ashauer III described his experiences in modeling.  During the shoot, he explained that he got started in modeling when he was invited by a friend who needed someone to fill a spot for a photo shoot. And as a person who loves new challenges, he seized the opportunity.  He enjoyed the experience and decided to continue it as a hobby and as a way to meet new people.

Bernhard, who just recently obtained his International Baccalaureate Diploma from the European International School-Manila, is leaving the Philippines soon to pursue his studies of Management and Engineering in Germany. However, he promises to come back every so often to Manila to do some modeling work.
