What the camera can't capture
Being a professional model is not as easy as it seems. It requires a lot of discipline, dedication, willingness to make sacrifices and a so-called "thick skin" (job rejection, tough competition, long days of shooting, etc.) to embark on a modeling career. I stood in front of the camera for the first time when I was about 6 years old for a photo studio near my parents' house. My pictures then graced this photographer's window for weeks, which made my family and I very proud. At that time it was still in the stars that I would actually gain a foothold in this industry. In my opinion, the A&O in this industry is to be constantly present and to make contacts. It's great to have an agency, but if you're not sociable, don't exude a certain charisma to customers and don't have the necessary bite for this business, you won't be able to keep this job for long. AND: Never let others make you smaller than you are. Trust in yourself and your abilities - NO ONE IS YOU and that is your superpower - the world needs exactly what YOU got.
