Quite a few things have happened since I last posted here, so I’ll try for a quick summary.
Thing 1) Six photo-shoots in six days, just finished yesterday. They were diverse and each a very different experience from the others. Three with Academy of Arts students working on portfolio development (Fine Arts *pictured, Fashion, and Editorial), a commercial concept pitch for an IDEO client (and a high-profile one, at that), a feature on my friend’s photography business for Playboy TV (Latin America), and headshots for my new commercial/lifestyle portfolio. Phew! It was a very fun week, and I met a lot of really talented people who I hope to collaborate with more in the future.
Thing 2) I got signed with CITY Model Management. Therefore the commercial/lifestyle portfolio. 😉 Pretty exciting stuff, my digital resume for them currently lists me as both a real people model and fashion/lifestyle, which is excellent. I hope to be doing a lot of work for them, and went to my first casting today. Tragically, the casting was for a cosmetics company, and my skin is flipping out (thanks to the monthly hormonal cycle) and it seems unlikely that I will get cast. I have two other leads with them for next week though, so, no time has been wasted in putting me on projects, which is delightful. I have a new job.
I *also* applied to Dollhouse Bettie as a lingerie model (before I signed with CITY), and got cast, so I will be (every now and then) modeling their fantastically gorgeous lingerie, which is super exciting. If you haven’t been to Dollhouse Bettie, I suggest you check them out, online or in person on Haight st. ❤ I am modeling for them this Friday.
With all these shoots, castings, fittings, etc. I’m going to need to re-program my training schedule and make sure I can stay in tip-top physical condition even while I’m missing many of the class-times I’d like to commit to. It will be an exercise in willpower, no doubt, and already has me waking up several hours earlier each day. Onwards and upwards!
