If you don't know what Model Mayhem is...well it's the networking site that many people in the fashion industry use to get exposure and make contacts. I do already have a small group of photographers in the semi local area that I hope to work with.'
However having a profile on this website would allow me the ability for when we either head back to the states to live or when I'm headed home for a visit to family be able to coordinate and work with some other photographers/models/ etc.
So after much hesitancy I decided December 23rd to fill out an app and see what happens. One of the must haves for putting an app in is four pictures of at least 3 to 4 different looks (especially if you are applying for Make Up Artist). However I used what I thought would be appropriate for pictures.
After waiting two days, I received an email on December 25th stating that my profile was approved and welcoming to Model Mayhem. So far I have done very very basic posting, I'm pretty much trying to find some Southern Californian contacts for when I go back to the states to visit in April (and I will be there for almost two months).
Fingers crossed things will work out...but it was one of the best Christmas Presents I earned
