Dania Denise Nor-Cal Meet & Greet Update

Hey, readers!

So I have good news: the Dania Denise Meet & Greet opportunity I posted about before has gained momentum and has about 6 people so far that are interested in attending...yay! That means the window is still open for anyone that is just now finding out about the meet and greet and wants to be a part of it.

Don't know what the heck I'm talking about? Please click the link below to get the 411:

Attention, Nor-Cal/Bay Area Modeling 101 Readers: Dania Denise Meet & Greet Info

As I said in that original post, I would do a follow up post to update everybody about where I'm at with the event. Right now it's looking like we'll be holding the meet and greet on a Saturday in September. The location is likely going to be a Starbucks--the one in particular I have in mind is located at the Hacienda Crossings, which is in Dublin.

I like this Starbucks location because it is easy to find, is located right near the I-580/I-680 interchange, as well as being across the freeway from the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station. So it's easily accessible. Plus, they have a nice large sitting area outside in case our group gets too big to stay indoors.

The door is still open for anybody else that wants to join...please read my original post at the link above to get the complete details about what the meet and greet is for, what to expect, etc. Then email me directly at: daniadenise@gmail.com to let me know what your best email address is to reach you at.

Please note that you must be okay with me adding your email address to the group that I am using to communicate with everyone privately about the event (no one's email address or other info will be shared on my blog or made public anywhere). Being able to send an email blast to the meet and greet attendees is a much more effective way to get everyone on the same page and cut down on the back and forth emails.

I'm very excited for the upcoming meet and greet and can't wait to talk shop about modeling with my readers in person!

Dania, is it possible for a small/not very known agency, to give you great and excelente jobs? -- What modeling website would you suggest for me to publicize my composite/portfolio? Those websites are competent? Better than being managed by agents?

Larissa A. said...

hey, hows it going? i have a doubt. agencies work with other agencies? i mean, agencies can offer their models to other agencies or not? for example, an agency offering its model to ford models. thanks and success for you, have a good one!! :)

Hi Dania. What type of model are you? Commercial/printing? By the way, do you know good some agencies around the new england, specially in new york that has printing/commercial departments?


Other question, Im about to make a new composite card. would it be more interesting if i have it done with only snapshots?



Thanks!

hi dania!
i just got signed to scout in san fran. as a high fashion model and I have my portfolio shoot this upcoming Saturday. I'm also meeting with the director for the first time that same week and i was wondering what to expect from both of these. I knew you would be the best person to ask because you've worked with scout :)

oh by the way, i was recruited to scout after meeting with ford in LA and they told me they work with and have close ties to scout. They said they are still interested in me but they want me to start my portfolio at scout. I'm kinda confused as to what might happen there too so I was hoping you can help

i know it's a lot :/ i just have a lot of questions haha

thanks so much!

Dania, I have all the requirements wrapped up for pretty much any modeling, I'm 16 and was just wondering how long male models can stay modeling in comercial/print, and runway/high fashion. Thank you so much!! This blog is unbelievably terrific!!!!!!! -Bentley Duval

Hi!
So I don't wear makeup very often but I know how to apply it and all tht stuff, and I can wear cute clothes and things like that, but when I go to take a photo is looks horrible! I've been told by many friends and family that I am pretty etc., and I read all sorts of photogenic tips and stuff but they never seem to work out. Thanks!
