Yesterday afternoon, I had the honor of speaking in front of several brand new models who are working to improve and build their portfolios. I was asked to share my experiences and insight by FASH Forward, a company designed to coach models who are new to the industry.
We met at Ida Claire in Addison for appetizers and cocktails, and I couldn't have been more excited to play a part.
I was able to talk with these models about their careers and give them a little insight into the modeling industry. I spoke of what led me to fashion photography and gave tips on building their Instagrams into a secondary portfolio. I was able to share the importance of learning and perfecting angles, the idea of treating every shoot like your "big break", and maintaining a positive attitude on and off set (of course!).
I could not be more excited about this opportunity to share what I have learned over the last two years of working with modeling agencies. It was an honor to be invited to speak, and I look forward to more of these opportunities in the future!
