Happy New Year, Modeling 101 Readers!!!

Yeah, yeah, I know...I'm late with the New Year's wishes, lol, but I took some days off to be completely lazy. Not to mention the modeling and acting gigs dried up for the holiday season. As much as I'm a workaholic, many more clients preferred to take vacations and leave projects for another day, haha. Understandable but I was bouncing off the walls out of boredom.

What saved the day was booking a promo commercial for a new app about a week ago. The commercial will be posted on the company's website but they're also considering buying airtime for it to appear on television in Chicago (where the company is based). I had a great time and really missed being in front of the camera. However, I did do other shoots over the past few months that I didn't get a chance to post about.

So I figured why not share them here?

Although I've already shared these photos as my blog header, below are the images from a cosmetics shoot I did for the Jira Couture Cosmetics company:
Here are some flicks from a clothing line shoot I did for a Japanese designer. The name of the company is SynZenBe:
I needed to update my swimsuit images so these are the latest from a shoot I did that are now in my portfolio:
A few posts back I shared a behind the scenes fun flick from a bridal shoot I was in. Below are the images the photographer, Marilee Caruso, will be using for her marketing materials:
These are some images from a jewelry shoot I did to help promote the designer's company, Paris Styles:
So that was the latter part of 2012 for me before things got slow. However, now that Christmas and New Year's Eve are out of the way, it seems people are geared up to get ready for business again. I've already submitted to a handful of castings and am steadily hearing back from clients so I have no doubt that my 2013 will soon be full of new projects I can share with you all!

Hope everybody had a wonderful holiday season and I look forward to adding even more blog posts to Modeling 101 and having you all along for the ride! Welcome, also, to my newest readers/subscribers...I truly enjoy seeing the number of subscribers continue to grow each week!

Here's to 2013...Cheers!!!

Hi! I'm currently 14 years old and I'd like to start getting involved in print/commercial modeling. As of the last time I measured myself a couple months ago I'm only 5'4'' and I happen to have braces. (bummer) Do you think I should wait until I get my braces off (which will be in 2016) before I contact agencies? By then I'd be 15 but it's possible I'd grow the 3/4 of an inch i need to reach 5'5''. Also, I was wondering if you could possibly suggest some agencies around me and any tips for getting started? I'm completely new to the industry (I live in West Covina, CA by the way). Thanks in advance and I hope you have an amazing year! :)

Hi! I'm interested in becoming a model and I wear my hair both naturally curly and flat ironed. So I wanted to know which way should I wear my hair for snapshot submissions?
