Ah, Lika! I completely agree with you, actually. Modeling is a tough as nails business. Hence, why it can be a pro or a con for me. Curiously, it's not related to my levels of rejection or admiration. More so, it's about how honest I am with myself. If I'm busting my balls for my own beliefs, and my personal genre of modeling, I am as happy as a butterfly. If I'm lying through my teeth, doing fake shoots where I hate the photographer and concept, I start to doubt why I'm even a model at all.

This. Especially the last part. Nothing causes burnout faster than when I do concepts I'm not fond of. I haven't come across photographers whom I have hated, but a few that I didn't connect well, and when you work so hard for an idea that is boring or you've done dozens of times before, when it becomes a shoot with zero fun or appeal (except for the paying the bills)... That's when things turn stagnant, and I get run down and depressed, and vow to quit modeling forever. That break usually just lasts a few months, until I force myself to go out to a shoot that turns out to be filled with creativity and energy and passion, work that I can be PROUD to show off... Then I'm happy as a clam, revitalized and reaffirmed and vow to never stop.

I'm lucky not to suffer this terrible afliction but  try to assist those who suffer it where I can. Getting out the door and developing a sense of purpose  has helped friends with depression.  Image making can, in my experience  - where there is not undue pressure -  assist somewhat.

Weight is such a tough thing in the modeling business, and although I'm pretty tiny and fit, I've had a few comments that I should lose a few pounds. Even though I know that I'm small, sometimes those comments sink into the brain and are hard to dislodge. Other people say that I need more curves. It is impossible to please anyone when it comes to that sort of stuff, which is sad.

You have a gorgeous body, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. You don't need to lose weight, and you don't need more curves. Different people have diffrent tastes and preferences. You can't be all things to all people. Don't even try. What you need is exactly what you have.

actually for me more recently as well, the depression has been exacerbated due to all the people not asking me to shoot but asking my model friends instead; or just ignoring my messages to shoot.

You know this can be a reminder,

“Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes.” William Gibson

I seem to forget sometimes. big_smile

As for any casting let downs I seem to have realized that for everyone who ignores you or turns you down there is always someone who won't! Remember that too... and sometimes they do want to work with you on a different project. I think they get so many messages that they can't respond to all of them. Even though I appreciate the ones that let me know or give me feedback.

So the agency isn't going to sign me right now. They want me to take some acting classes and come back in two months. At least it's not a 'Hell no!'

you know what? i had a really bad day at work today and i really feel like going off on someone (but i won't.)  it doesn't quite tie into modeling, except for the "feeling ignored/unappreciated" bit.

Sorry about the shitty work day. What are you currently doing? Is it stressful often? What do you do on stressful days normally? Do you enjoy your job? If you wanna vent about feeling ignored or unappreciated you can. It is for sure a not fun feeling. Thats a hard topic.

For myself, My work ethic is one where I like things done certain ways and I always want things completed and done "right". I go as far as to make things harder for myself even, often. I can manage to get myself all worked up because I am doing things in such a way and I automatically assume other people do things the same way. Most people just show up to get their money. Not everyone cares about what they are doing. If you care, that's a bonus, but it isnt common.

Just keep doing what you do. Know that at some point it will be worth it. If not now, at some point. I am sure you are gaining knowledge or experience. (and you have a job!) Imagine a ballsack smacking someones forehead the next time someone upsets you smile

ooooh front desk!!!!! I bet you deal with some serious shit!!! 5 years is a long time. Do you get benefits there? The people business is hard. Especially right now starting around holiday season I am sure things are starting to pick up. Did someone call out? get fired? Are they addressing the issue?

Family is family and not always or in some cases ever supportive. It depends on the what when where who why thing. Is there anyone that you CAN vent to about work? Any employees that you are friends with who you can meet up with and have coffee or drinks with? or just hang out with? They would understand your situation specifically. I worked in the food/bar service industry on and off since I was 17 largely and it was nice sometimes to get off and go blow off steam and shoot the shit with people.

As far as modeling goes, its understandable. Do you usually pursue shoots or wait to be pursued? I dont know how so many people shoot so often. I think they are just much more active about going about it. I havent been shooting much as of late, but will be shooting this Saturday. I find that when I actually try to socialize with people, I find myself shooting, but when I dont, I dont. I also know that I want to work on certain things for my portfolio and I am not interested in other things. I have turned down some things and thats ok, and I have also tried to talk with some people at certain points and shoots havent worked out. I just know that if I am interested in shooting with someone, and feeling frisky, I go for it. I have the same insecurities as you in feeling like I cant emote properly or pose the way I think I should. The only way we can improve is to never stop striving for better, right?

I have found modeling to be very helpful in lightening my depression. I have had a massive boost in self-esteem and have been given a reason not to SI. Any other models have similar stories? How has depression affected your modeling?

Modeling affected my (undiagnosed)depression?

I was always happy modeling. It's a self esteem boost, there's always great conversation, and it's fun(:

ahhh silly me about the duration of the job. Hang in there with the job. I always used to have to work holidays. No Paid time off or any of that stuff. It was just what I was used to. It was usually busier around holidays though. More stressful. It all depended on where I was at what time. When I got a "big girl" job for a while having paid time off was the most awkward thing for me. Currently unemployed. Maybe not for long though. (have been for over a year though)

A job like you have I would think could be very stressful and have high turn around. Try not to bring work home with you. Leave all the bs where it should be. Much easier said than done though. Do you feel like you have yourself organized the best you can be at work? I find that I would rather take the time to set things up even if it takes me longer to start, so that it is easier and more methodical for me in the long run. The people however, will always be there. Some pleasant some not. When they are being dicks, I am smiling at them nodding my head yes, and cursing them the fuck out so bad in my head. Its the only way to survive. "and have a lovely day!!! go fuck yourself.......!

The people who are the real pains in the asses are the ones I REALLY want to turn their opinions of me around. My boss at the place I worked at the longest, pleasing customers is her main thing. Thats what she taught me. Im like, come on!!!!! This person is such a damn asshole!!!!! but most of her business is repeat or word of mouth and she is out on the floor of the restaurant a bunch. I learned a lot from her. If the customer is happy, then the business is happy. Its rare that she would cave and be negative TOWARDS THE CUSTOMER. Very rare.

As far as modeling and fb, I keep the two seperate. MM is for this stuff and fb is my private life. I know many people who intermingle the both, but thats not for me. Do you have a model fb? and a personal fb? About photographers not responding back to you, have you considered messaging them personally and saying would you like to set up a shoot? I have this concept in mind? I am available on this day? Id like to wear this?

i don't have separate fb for modeling because i don't really see the point in it i guess.  altho yea maybe it would help keep my personal life out of my professional...sadly i have wondered if stuff in my fb profile has pushed people away because maybe i sound like a PIA to work with. although just because i have a bad day at work, doesn't mean i'll have a bad attitude at a shoot, ya'know?

approaching a photographer about shooting is rough because, like i said, i never really have any ideas, outfits, etc in mind. sometimes they ask me for ideas, and i just can't come up with anything....

either depression or it's the truth, lol.  i don't think it's quite disputable to say that people really don't respond to anything i post either on here or on fb, or that photographers work with other models but don't ask me to shoot, or don't respond to my msgs asking to shoot.  the reasons, tho, they may be in my head.

i've pretty much been diagnosed as having anxiety and depression already, years ago tongue  i've tried like 4 different meds and nothing really worked.  therapy...eh i'm not a fan, because i'm not great with dealing with advice.  and even if i wanted therapy i can't really do it because i don't have health insurance.  even nys insurance doesn't cover mental health issues.

Hello lovelies!

I'm going to rant real quick about a recent comment I received on a vimeo that was posted: "sagging breasts beautiful face but damage already." That was the entirety of the comment - cut and pasted it myself. wink

Yep. My breasts are not perky. First bra at age 11, and by 16 I was a 36D. Ta-da! Gravity works! I realize I could have a surgery to bring them back up to where they were when I was a teenager, but I opt not to do so. I can't afford it, and even if I did have that kind of money I'd just put it toward my school loans anyhow. *shrug* Okay, got me there. Sagging breasts - check.

But then, oh no! My face is damaged! Yeah. Again, probably true. I love the sun, and I rarely ever burn. Most of my life I haven't worn sunscreen or stayed indoors away from the sun. Instead, I went outdoors and played sports in the sun. I also don't wear makeup (unless asked to do so for a shoot), and so my facial imperfections are not masked on a regular basis. Okay, got me again. My face is "damaged."

My conclusion: ouch, dude. Um...thanks for the feedback? hmm

Posting a photo of yourself and then belittling yourself means you're looking for others to validate your self-image. You want people to tell you that you're wrong and you look great.

You don't like the way you are? You think you're fat? Then workout. Eat healthier. But don't look to the opinions of strangers on the Internet to validate your beauty. Change what you dislike about yourself, instead of running yourself down and relying on others to pick you up. Otherwise, the cycle will never end.

How?

You feel that you're overweight, so you have only 2 choices:
1. Accept yourself as you are.
2. Eat healthy and start working out.

You had a third option:
3. Be disappointed in yourself and hope others will help you feel beautiful.

I think you're beautiful, but it doesn't matter, because that third option hasn't been working for you. I suggest you pick one of the first two. wink

ha, yea, pretty much. painful realization to accept.

i've got #3 down pat, and sadly that doesn't help much either. especially since i don't seem to get compliments anymore...but that may be because i haven't been able to do a lot of shoots lately, so no pretty photos to show off tongue

right now i guess i'd say i'm working on #1 because i am just not having much luck with #2.  i like junk food too much, and i'm an emotional eater =/  and i stand all day at my job, which hurts my feet and makes me want to exercise even less.
but if nothing else i hope i'll be able to start forcing myself to exercise more. damn winter, btw.

i think you have great curves!  the only thing i would suggest is to make sure you suck in your stomach...and that's NOT a criticism at all, all models no matter how thin do it. especially when they/we are sitting, we all get a bit of a pooch.

Thanks, I will keep that in mind. I'm actually gonna start using my weighted hula-hoop again. It's almost 5lbs and is an amazing ab workout

That sounds like a great plan.

As for working out, I once heard an awesome piece of advice from Chalene Johnson who said that workouts are like romantic relationships. You can't just commit yourself to an exercise routine, then give up when things don't work out. You keep searching until your find your right partner and you do the same with exercise - keep searching until you find a routine which clicks and resonates with you.

Good luck. wink

You can't just commit yourself to an exercise routine, then give up when things don't work out. You keep searching until your find your right partner and you do the same with exercise - keep searching until you find a routine which clicks and resonates with you.

Good luck. wink

Thanks big_smile
