LET'S CLARIFY AND BREAK THIS MYTH...…
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GET NAKED TO BE A MODEL!
This is a lie often told by so called photographers or those exploiting, to lure in naïve models. No doubt you are beautiful, but this is not necessary unless you want the attention of a porn star.
Putting yourself into that position increases your risk of attracting predators dramatically.
I know many smart and successful models who have never done the walk of shame or felt that disappointment after being pressured.
If someone if offering a shoot at no cost, consider what’s in it for them… Especially a “professional” who if genuine should be shooting with amazing models all the time.
Sure there are times when certain shoots require less clothing or to be done a certain way, but only go there if it's explained upfront, and you're comfortable with that. Those trashy type images done by amateurs often look more like soft porn than art, and will not propel your career like the promises suggested.
As a man I am often appalled to hear the actions of some individuals taking advantage, then even go on to boast of their exploits with models, unawares that not all men are predators like them.
A FEW TIPS TO KEEP SAFE
- Stalk the person or business giving you the offer
- Message or call their contacts and references direct to ask about their credibility
- Take someone with you to a shoot
- Do not let anyone touch you or enter your personal space if it makes you uncomfortable
- If the pressure is evident and you feel vulnerable, be brave, get out, and report it.
Quoted by a wise man….
For most of us there is no shortage of desire in our lives. We desire to love. We desire to be successful or be famous. Many of us desire to be fitter or to weigh less. The problem is the distance between our desire and our action.
See, good intentions remain mostly that for misinformed models - intentions with no action. Nearly all dreams come true not by quick exposure (getting naked), but by professional direction.
Do you have that desire to be a genuine model? Put it into action by talking to professionals and take the right steps to get there. AUSSIE ELITE is here to help!
