Model Spotlight - Caitlin Litzinger

First of all a huge thank you goes out to Caitlin for responding back to all your great questions while traveling tonight in Chicago. She arrived safe and sound and is expecting some snow tomorrow. Without further adieu here you are:

1. When did you know you wanted to be a model?

I wanted to be a clothing designer when I was younger, but then as I got older I realize how neat it was to model, it was very similar to acting, I got to play different roles and characters.

2. What advice do you wish someone would have given you when you started modeling?

I wish someone had shown me what to do and help point me in the direction I'm going now.

3. What’s the best thing that has happened to you as a result of working with Mike on the Wings of Angels Project?

The best thing that's come from working with Michael on the Wings of Angels is cementing my place in history of the project. It is exactly the style of modeling I wanted to do. It has made me recognizable as a pin up model and helped me grow in understanding good pin up work and how it's done correctly.  

4. What is is like working with Mike?

Michael is a lot of fun to work with, he is easy going but thorough. I always feel like I am going to get great shots when I leave. And also a small history lesson each time as well! It's just a really great experience each time.  

5. How do you feel about posing with WWII flying legends and about opportunity to be an inspirational girl for the heroes?

I think it is such a great opportunity and I take it very seriously. I want to be a role model. 

6. What has been your favorite photo shoot you’ve done with Michael?

My favorite shoot we have done is probably the recreation of a Gil Elvgrin. It was fun to turn it into reality. I knew it was something Michael had been planning for a while and it was just a blast.

7. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

This one is a tricky one. My Mom always says, "When man makes plans, God laughs". So I try and take each day for what it is and always be grateful for the opportunities I am given to create art.

8. How did you like working with Michael on the Wings of Angels shoot? If Michael were to decided to do a Wings of Angels 2, would you be up for that project as well?

Wings of Angels is something I am so proud to be a part of, collectively it's an amazing project. I would shoot 50 more editions if only he and Father Time would allow. 

9. If you could have been born at any period in time, which would you choose and why? 

I think that the 1930s would have been a great era to be a part, I love the clothing and the music. There was so much growth and development of that time, it would have been neat to be a part. 

10. What is your favorite childhood memory?

My favorite childhood memory has to be driving all over the country with my mom, sister, and grandma. We camped and saw the whole USA every summer. You can learn a lot about our country by just driving around. 

I want to personally thank Ms. Caitlin Litzinger for taking time out of her busy day to answer a few of your questions. This provides you with a greater insight into who she is on the inside in our Model Spotlight. I'll leave you with a video clip from a photo shoot with Caitlin! Hope you enjoyed this Model Spotlight!

  1. Thank you for taking the time to answer all of these questions, Caitlin. I really enjoyed reading your replies. Stay safe and warm in Chicago! Have a wonderful weekend.. :)

    Take care,
    Shawn Hamilton

  2. What a great way to not only talk about about each individual model, but to get to know them a bit better and follow your Wings of Angels Project. Can't wait for the book to come out! Nice of as Well Michael! Can't wait to see more on here!

  3. FYI to models and photographer - WWII period garter belts were worn inside underwear for obvious practical reasons - brassieres were less revealing but style in B-17 shoot is close enough - otherwise aircraft and models are breathtaking - excellent quality - thank you
