This bootcamp will take you from A-Z, teaching you the mindset, posing, and skills you need to succeed and make money as a model

Do you see other models crushing it online and wish you could have that success?

 

Maybe you’ve even looked into it, but to be honest,    you don’t know where to start.

 

 

You have so many questions and seemingly no answers from Google.

 

How do people afford to hire so many photographers

and build a portfolio?

I’m too tall/short/big/small/tattooed/freckled/asymmetrical/imperfect to make money modeling”. Is there a place for me?

What comes first? The agency or the portfolio?

Don’t models just get discovered? No one has reached out to me, so it must not be a possibility for me, right?

Just two years ago, I was asking myself those exact same questions. The modeling industry felt like a secret club that I wanted to join, but couldn’t find a way in. I was scared to ask questions and even more scared to put myself out there in such a vulnerable way (what would my friends think?) Now? I’m signed to an amazing agency and have worked with some of my DREAM companies.

How did I do it?   Through extensive research, and through trial and error. I fell flat on my face so YOU won’t have to. I’ve used those moments of “oops” as important feedback that springboarded me to some of my biggest moments of success.

This year I have been published numerous times and worked with companies like Ammil Designs, Universal Yarns, Ipsy and Juicy Couture. And best of all, I’m making money doing what I love.
