I began modeling as it had branched off an acting career at age 13. I have experience with photographic, runway, and promotional modeling. I believe that personality is the key to being a great model; and the best models are able to capture their personality without a single word, perhaps even without a smile. Dedication, ambition, good self esteem, punctuality, personal care, and a good charisma is essential to modeling. Afterall, you are selling a product or a service; you are what people see; you are what consumers admire.
Besides the seriousness often required in the industry, I believe it is important to have fun! It is sometimes hard to get your perfect picture if the connection between both sides of the lense isn't strong. Having fun, making jokes, or simple communication are important as they create a sense of comfortability. I have been told by photographers that I am alot of fun to work with and there's never a moment of dullness with me!
