Be A Model Parent

Having been raised by a protective family, I can say two things; 1) it was annoying, 2) it kept me safe.  I am happy to say that I survived my childhood unscathed and have turned into a well-adjusted adult (at least I’d like to think so).  Because of this, I am able to navigate through this […]

Nail Your Shoot

Getting booked for a shoot is only half the victory.  Once you show up you are still expected to deliver quality work.  A good model doesn’t just rely on genetics to get a good photo.  All of the top models in the world have at least one thing in common; they work hard.  Here are some […]

Your Body of Work

  Your portfolio is your visual resume; you should never leave home without it.   Well, at least you should never go to a casting and not bring it with you.  Typically when you walk into a casting call, after waiting your turn and making a brief introduction, a client will take a couple of minutes to look […]

Sell Yourself

Back in 2010 I released my first calendar as a way to promote my brand.  This was such a fun project!  A friend from high school had recently begun doing photography so we did  a trade so that we could both use the photos for our portfolios.  Creating printed content for your followers, as a model, […]

Get Signed

The idea of getting signed to a modeling agency can be quite intimidating.  You know you want to be the next Tyra, Cara, or Adriana but maybe you just don’t feel confident enough, tall enough, thin enough, perfect enough?  But if you’re serious, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t at least try your luck at getting […]

Don’t Be Fooled!

As an eager new model, or model new to booking oneself, you may very well come across a lot of interesting characters and receive emails that seem a little off.  The first thing you should always remember is that your gut, that feeling that tells you something isn’t right, is usually spot on.  And when it comes […]

So you decided to give modeling a go and realized you need pictures of yourself to book jobs.  You looked at a few photography websites but the rates are just too rich for your blood.  This calls for tfp. Tfp stands for trade for print.  When a photographer posts an ad mentioning this acronym, she is offering to […]

If you’re new to spearheading your own modeling career, my guess is you’re probably wondering where to start.  Depending on where you live, your look, and your discipline, this may be easy, require quite a bit of leg work or be close to impossible.  But, let’s assume you live in a booming area, have a marketable look, and are marvelously self-sufficient.  The […]
