After about a month of being on Model Mayhem I finally got a message from a make up artist saying that she would like me to collaborate with her and her team and mentioned that she enjoys working with new people. I checked out her her portfolio and wow! I couldn’t believe that SHE wanted to work withlittle ol ME. Somehow she was able to see past the poor quality of my portfolio and recognize my styling.
We discussed ideas about the shoot she even asked me if there were any models that I was interested in working with. I sent her some models that had reached out to me ,she didn’t like any of them I asked her why and she explained flaws which i didn’t see at first she told me “you’ll learn to be picky” I thought to myself who am I to judge these beautiful models but she was right, you develop an eye after a while.
For the shoot she gave me some inspiration for looks because I had no idea where to start. She mentioned that the photographer is very selective and boy was she right! The photographer only picked 2 of the 6 looks I brought, in a way I was glad that he was that picky it made me feel like he really knew what he was doing. From that point I never brought mediocre looks to future shoots only my strongest even if it was 2 looks.
For my first shoot it was quite an experience , I was so honored to be a part of this team, they had such good chemistry and talent which it showed through in their work. One day I hope to have my one team doing shoots left and right. Until then I’m just fine with meeting new artist, mentors and friends its one of my favorite things about this journey.
Im so very proud of my 1st shoot with a full team WE ROCKED!
