Should I pursue a side job of modeling or is it a silly idea?
I’m 23, mixed Asian, 5’3, proportional fit body, and I’ve always been interested in the modeling scene and photography. I’ve become particularly interested in print, car, and glamor modeling which is great because most of those models are my size. I think it’d be a great and fun side job since I’ve always wanted to do it. Part of the reason is I’m tired of being seen as the pretty innocent girl. I want to bring a “sexy” side out. I’m not looking at it as a main career path because I’m being realistic here, it’s not likely! I’m almost done with college too so I might be still working within the family business or try to work for Limited Brands. Of course I’m keeping in mind future careers that will not get me in trouble for these type of photos
Anyways, there’s this successful model named Tiffany Habib in my hometown. She’s been on Maxim, FHM, and car magazines.
I gave her a message on Facebook and asked how my “cousin” would get a start in the industry in a small town when really I was asking about myself. She told me what I could do and also referred her own company called WWW.PINK-ELITE.COM. She has several models, one girl I recognize, in her company and a lot of them have found pretty good work in magazine pages, events, photo shoots, etc. She has a model workshop coming up that costs $200 for the whole day (she rarely has workshop events): advice, guidance, photo shoot with hair and makeup, images, etc. It’s a per-requisite before joining her modeling company if she thinks we have potential and likes our look. She mentioned she was looking to add diversity and she liked how I looked and wanted me to try it out.
Might I add, her company staffs models for my boyfriend’s car club which I never knew lol. Boyfriend and I are pretty good friends with the president of the car club and she works with him!
So is it worth giving it a shot? I mean, I’m young and I have the time but I’m afraid of being looked at as vain and conceited lol. Haven’t talked to this about my boyfriend either.
