I know what it is like to be a shorter model starting from scratch

I write this blog because I've been there, I know what it is like to get scammed, to start from scratch, to experience mistakes, and even amateur photographers. I know what it is like to even rely on the Internet, and then want more for myself. And the work it takes to get more.

I know what it is like to try to be a model without any help, or advice. I know what it is like to try, and try again, through trial and error and prevail and see results.

I know what it is like to start with the wrong photography and focus on getting the good, and strive to work with the professionals I want to work with.

I know it is easy for a girl to make mistakes, get trapped in the wrong mindset, and to "call herself" a model but not really "be one" an "work as one" and "model for something" real, until you really give your self a chance in the right way.

A girl on facebook recently wrote me and said she had made mistakes with amatuer sites. And in this Internet-age, more and more girls are entrapped with the web and relying on it on it as the main source to make themselves a model, "download your photo be seen"...well that isn't enough...,real legit modeling opportunities, jobs, agencies, are not found by using a model-hosting site. Waiting for someone to click on your face.

You need a compcard, professional photos, no excuses. That's what you need.

Putting your photo on a model-site doesn't mean real modeling will happen. Usually something that sounds that easy, is not.

It takes doing things the real way, striving in the right direction, aiming for professionalism, real agencies, mailing your comp card in the mail to the right pritn agencies, and mainly wanting more for your self is how to get more.

The right way. :) Anyone can download a photo and call themselves a model, but that is not real modeling. I don't care how tall you are, It is possible to get some modeling opportunities, with a realistic mindset, and the higher you aim, the more you want for yourself, the more real and honest, and legit, and better it gets.

If you want to get real modeling work, ask yourself this:
Do you have professional photography?
The right modeling photos?
Do you have a comp card?
Have you submitted the comp card to print modeling agencies?

These things are how to get going in the right direction.

Well, I have family in town today, so I am off to be a tourist in NYC, it's a perfect day for it! Sometimes it's good to be a tourist in your own town.

Strive on,
Isobella
