I hired Max, a fabulous Fashion photographer, as I wanted to unleash my inner model. I had been modeling when I was younger but stopped for various reasons during my late teenage years. As I grew more confident and radiant during my other photo shoots, I knew it was time honor my desire and rekindle my modeling career.
During this shoot, I focused on bringing forth a less polished, but more raw and undefined version of myself. That’s what agencies want to see; that you are capable of expressing your natural beauty and using what you got. Of course, you features matter, but understanding how to ‘play’, present and sell yourself is even more important.
As you probably can see, I’m still learning how to present and sell myself the best. I really enjoy the process of learning about myself and working with great photographers though. Each and every photo shoot is teaching my important aspects.
Max is a super laid-back guy, yet highly professional. With a certain calm, he captures the most radiant and natural moments.
