Mia Solis is a girl I could never grow tired of looking at, a delicate redhead with a host of adorable freckles and an absolutely incredible body. She's a girl of contradictions, seemingly reserved and a little shy, but with a devastating way of looking into the camera that suggests an inner confidence. And then there's that huge tattoo on her back, rarely seen, that hints at a more edgy side to her personality.
Mia is also incredibly funny and self-effacing, genuinely surprised that MetArt members would want to hear more about her! With nearly fifty sets of her published here already, including today's welcome addition from Luca Helios, I thought it was time we got to know her a little better.
Mia, please tell us a little about yourself.
MS: Hi everybody. First of all I would like to thank you for giving me the chance to introduce myself. I had no idea that anyone actually cared about me and my life! I'm 24 years old, and I'm from Czech Republic - specifically from South of Bohemia. After finishing university I moved to London, where I've been living for the past year and a half. My biggest hobby is traveling, that's the main reason why I do what I do. Of course I'm also into photography, but if you want me to be 100 percent honest, traveling is the part of my life I enjoy the most; and of course everything else around it - meeting new people, discovering new places and cultures, foreign languages, anything new that can make my experience, soul or personality grow. I'm not saying I always like what I explore though!
What inspired you to get into nude modeling?
MS: When I realized I really liked photography, I wasn't exactly sure which genre was my favorite. I was just randomly checking pictures online, and after a while I found out that every time I saw a photo of a naked woman I felt ‘something,' and tried to figure out what the hell it was. No, it has nothing to do with the fact that I could be horny, it's not the fact that there is a naked girl in the picture, it's something else that I'm not able to explain yet. I just like to be a part of it.
Do you do mainstream modeling as well?
MS: Yes, I have done quite a lot of non-nude shoots in the past few years and I enjoy it as well. It's different - in a good way. I like the fact there are usually more people involved, which makes it even more interesting and exciting.
Where is the best place you've traveled to for work?
MS: I'm probably going to seem strange right now but I have no favorite place so far. The fact I was born as a Libra doesn't help at all. I'm just not able to make a decision... but that's another story - and a long one!
What is your favorite thing about your appearance?
MS: Nothing! I'm trying hard, but every part of me needs at least a small (usually huge) improvement. Yes, and people say I'm kind of self-critical... another long story, I'm afraid!
Do you have a favorite photoset?
MS: Hard to say, but probably Voyeur or Gusta on SexArt. For MetArt - this is really hard as there are so many of them. I'm afraid you would need to narrow the selection criteria at least a little bit. If someone put a knife to my throat and said "Pick one, Mia!" I would answer Eleyi.
Would you ever consider making more movies for MetArt, or even SexArt?
MS: Actually yes. I don't see the idea as so unbelievable, as I did a few years ago when I said to myself just "Jeez, no way man!" As you already know, I'm not able to make a decision, and if I do I change it every second, so I will see. I'm sure now is not a good time for me to start doing that, but never say never... especially in my case!
Please tell us about your tattoo - does it have a meaning?
MS: Sure it has. It's just difficult to explain and I'm not even sure if I'm able to do so. However I'm not going to try right now, sorry!
In your photos you often look very thoughtful, calm and serene. How would you describe yourself?
MS: I hear this really often and it always confirms the fact that people don't know me at all! I definitely wouldn't describe myself as calm, serene and so on. The main reason is that I only really open up when I'm surrounded by people I know really well. Otherwise I feel and behave differently. I'm not saying I don't feel comfortable, it's just not me. Or maybe it is and I'm schizophrenic, haha! I think you have noticed I usually don't smile, jump or do ‘funny' stuff in the pictures like some other models do. Now you know the reason. It's a pity, isn't it? (laughing)
What are your ambitions?
MS: That's the question! My ambitions are not really material though. I just want to beat every challenge appearing around me and get better in each aspect of myself - skills, personality, knowledge. No matter how hard it is... I kind of like to fight with myself.
Is there anything else you would like to tell your fans?
MS: I know it's getting annoying, but thank you again for such support from all the MetArt and SexArt members, the team and last but not least all the amazing photographers and models I've had the chance to work with. You have all been helping me to develop myself and I can't thank you enough. I wish you guys success and happiness! Anyway I'm preparing my personal blog where you can find other information as I still have so much more to say. If you want to stay in touch you can follow my FB fan page and I will meet you there!
Cheers and Kisses,
Thank you to DeltaGamma and Frank for helping to make this interview happen!
