Meet the Model: Natasha Barnard

Publish date:

Natasha Barnard is the rare breed of model who feels as comfortable in front of the camera as behind it. The South Africa native has ambitions of being a wildlife photographer when her modeling days come to an end. "I more than anything want to work with wild animals," Natasha told us in April. "I want to be involved with conservation and also further my wildlife photography. I have big ideas for a wildlife show, coffee table books and a one of a kind lodge, so watch this space." In this video, Barnard explains how an ex-boyfriend convinced her to get serious about photography and the parrots and sharks that were present during her SI swim shoot in Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
