Interview With Stephanie Branton
What or who influenced to to start modeling??
As far back as I can remember I wanted to be a model. I would see playboys, different magazines and models on TV that I would look up to. Being from a small town in Newfoundland I never thought I would get the chance to make my dreams a reality. Once I was living and working in Toronto as a model, I got the opportunity to go to LA for a playboy event. Where I met and became friends with playboy photographer Josh Ryan. Over a year later he asked me to come and test for playmate. I did , then a week later found out I got it. Then was told I would be doing my shoot in New Orleans and then later that I got the cover :)!
What’s the biggest difference between Newfoundland and LA??
The biggest difference between Newfoundland and LA is that Newfoundland is still so untouched. I just went home for the first time in 3 years and I have such a greater appreciation for how stunningly beautiful Newfoundland is. There is so much beautiful scenery , houses and culture are so unique and different from most of of the world . I am so proud to be from Newfoundland. There are so many people in LA and everything is so much more fast paced here! It is much more rural in Newfoundland which is nice to go back to! 🙂
