Book Dania Denise

This page is for those in the industry that wish to work with me. The information on this page will help me take your offer into serious consideration. 

Please note that I am first and foremost a businesswoman and a brand--my resume and portfolio showcase my experience in the industry, plus I keep a very busy schedule. That being said, if I choose to not work with you, please do not take it personally...I do have my reasons (see the "Additional Info" section below).


If you are interested in working with me, there are two methods of contact:

Kit International Talent: Tabitha Kit 
Phone: (800) 473-8063


If you choose to email me directly, please include the following information:

- Theme/Concept of the shoot
- Location
- Date/Time
- Compensation (Is it a paid project? TF*, etc? Please note that paid projects will always take priority)
- Will hair, makeup, wardrobe, styling be provided? If not, what am I required to bring?
- Purpose of the shoot (Portfolio update, publication, website, tearsheets, campaign, etc?)
- What will I receive in return? (Prints, tearsheets, retouched images, raw images, etc?)
- Link to your website or gallery/portfolio of work


The same list of criteria applies. However, it is important to let me know if you have a photographer on board for the shoot/project or if you are in need of one. In the latter situation, I do have a roster of photographers that I can refer. For shoots that already have a photographer, please send me a link to his/her work, as well as yours.


Common courtesy and professionalism go such a long way with me. When contacting me, please introduce yourself and give me some idea of who you are and what you've done -- please be aware that there is a big difference between giving me a brief recap of your experience and just plain bragging and name-dropping...that's a big pet peeve of mine, lol.

Again, I pride myself as a brand and a businesswoman so I am very selective about who I work with. Below are some of the reasons why I may choose to not work with you at this point in time:

1) Your concept/theme is something that I do not currently need in my portfolio.

2) Your concept/theme does not relate to the type of modeling I specialize in.

3) The caliber of your work is not of a level that I feel would benefit my portfolio. (This is not my way of being a diva...again, it's all business. It's like winning a million dollars and choosing to buy an old car that could crap out on you at any moment instead of something nicer--it just isn't practical. :-p)

4) The tone of your email/phone call is unprofessional and/or rude (and, yes, ghetto does fall under this category'd be surprised by some of the messages I get from people and how they phrase things...goodness gracious!)

5) You have a history of being unorganized, unprofessional, late, difficult to work with, etc.

6) If you can't stop talking about who you shoot with, what you've done, how much money you make, blah, blah, blah...I can do without egos--it's just unattractive and distracting, especially when trying to do business.

Modeling & Pay Rates: How Much Should You Charge?

(This post is more targeted towards freelance models and not those with agency representation, although it may apply to those that have an agent but continue to find their own work.) A part of being a successful model is making money from the jobs that you book. However, being a freelance model comes with many challenges--figuring out what you should charge is one of them. I will say upfront that there are no established black and white rules when it comes to pay rates. Each modeling job is different, each client is different and budgets vary. Ultimately the factors that should influence what you charge should be the amount of experience you have, the strength of the images in your portfolio and the client's budget/needs. Not every client is going to pay what you want to charge. There may be times when you will be skipped over for charging too much or taken advantage of for charging too little. It's going to happen so be prepared for it and do not take it personally. It

Modeling and Weight

One of the first things I hear potential models ask is what the weight requirement for modeling is. Sometimes that is the main issue they worry about when it comes to pursuing modeling. Let me tell you right now that weight should NOT be one of those concerns. Obviously, the height requirement reigns supreme when measuring up to the modeling standards sought out by agencies. If you meet the height requirements--whether it's for fashion and runway or commercial/print--that is the first step towards starting on the path to modeling. How much you weigh shouldn't be your biggest fear. It is rare that anyone can look at someone and say, "Oh, my gosh, he/she looks like they are 5 pounds over our weight requirement!" It just isn't realistic. If you look at many modeling agency websites, they clearly list the age and height requirements--rarely, if at all do they list any weight restrictions. The general rule of thumb when it comes to weight is that for models who

What Are Male Models Supposed to Look Like?

The modeling world is filled with women. That's never been a secret and sadly, that often means male models fall by the wayside. There are successful male models in all categories across the industry but the fact that the modeling business revolves around women can make it challenging for newbies to figure out how to pursue their goals of male modeling. It is important to know that because there are different types of modeling categories out there, that means there are also different types of male models. They aren't all supposed to look alike and what ends up being in demand does change every year. Let's break down the common attributes that come with male modeling in various popular categories, shall we? THE MALE FASHION/RUNWAY/EDITORIAL MODEL These are the typical types of models most of us tend to think of when it comes to men in modeling. What is important to know and understand if you're an aspiring male model is that agencies have all different looks
