Modeling & Tax Season: To Write Off or Not To Write Off?

Posted by on in Models Blog | 0 comments

I know that tax season for the year already passed but I felt it was still okay to post about the topic of taxes and modeling since I figure it’s never too early to get info that could help people out when it comes time to file next year (and maybe even give you a jump start on organizing your receipts and other paperwork). I’ve written a few articles on the subject (if you use the search tool on my blog and type in “taxes,” the posts will come up–make sure you select the “Amodelsdiary.blogspot.com”...

Posted by on in Models Blog | 0 comments

It’s rare that I meet aspiring models who don’t have goals of being in a fashion show and doing their thing on the runway. I can’t say I blame them–there’s something about being in the spotlight with all eyes on you as you strut down the catwalk. It’s a pure adrenaline rush. I’ve written numerous topics about the runway walk on this blog but wanted to add this post to break down some of the important dos and don’ts that female and male models can learn from, especially if you’re just...

Models, Shoots, Shows + Common Sense Tips

Posted by on in Models Blog | 0 comments

I used to jokingly say, “Common sense is a superpower.” Truth be told, I don’t really joke about it anymore because it’s true. On almost every shoot I’ve been on this year I’ve heard at least one “WTH” type of story about a model. I believe in signs so the fact that I keep hearing about all these ridiculous happenings that really shouldn’t even be an issue is what motivated me to write this post. If you’ve been guilty of this, I’m hoping that you learn why the matters touched...

Models, Technology & Communication

Posted by on in Models Blog | 0 comments

Okay, if you know anything about me, you know that I’m professional to a fault. What I love about having my blog, mentoring, coaching and consulting is that it gives me the chance to educate the next wave of models on how to practice the good habits (not develop bad ones) and understand the importance that their polished and professional approach will be to the success of their modeling goals. Technology has taken over our lives and social media, love it or hate it, is a part of our daily routine. This includes doing business. However,...

How to Get Published in a Magazine as a Model

Posted by on in Models Blog | 0 comments

The wonderful thing about our technology driven world is it has completely changed the face of the modeling industry. From modeling agencies to how clients find new faces, the industry has learned to grow and adapt to the times. This includes magazines. Getting published in a magazine as a model is one of the most coveted goals, as it should be. In the past it was much more challenging to figure out how to get into a magazine, especially for female and male models not represented by an agency and/or didn’t meet the physical requirements...

Child Modeling: The Sometimes Harsh Reality

Posted by on in Models Blog | 0 comments

I believe in not beating around the bush and while you could consider me Paula Abdul on American Idol when it comes to giving reality checks with a smile, the fact of the matter is that the modeling industry as a whole can be harsh. Of course, you probably already knew that but it is important to really understand that getting into modeling eventually puts you in the belly of the beast. And it doesn’t matter if you’re young or old. In the case of child models and their parents, grasping the reality of the competitive nature that...
