Today I booked my first job! I was on hold for a while - but I didn't even know about that. Mom knows how disappointing it can be, to be on hold for a job and then not get it, so she didn't say anything. But then the email came confirming the booking and I couldn't be more excited!
It is for a women's health magazine and I am to be accompanying a model as part of a fashion ad for boots. The requirements are that I have a strong SIT and STAY. I have been practicing these skills for some time so I can only show up now and do my best.
The actual job is on Thursday at a fancy studio down in Soho. A popular place for models when they do their photography shoots. I am going to get a little face trim the night before as my hair has grown a bit and I need to look exactly like my submission photo. I'm looking forward to seeing the final product and starting my 'look book'. I watched America's Next Top Model, and know the lingo.
What's also great, is that I live in a performing arts building, and now I can say I am a true participating member in the field. Of course, now I need to start looking at marketing myself so I'm perusing new business cards and I'll wait to see what shots they get, as I may use one as my mailer. ok - paws crossed on Thursday.
