Q: Any advice you would give upcoming models?
A: Do not degrade yourself and respect yourself. I am a big fan of sexy but keep it classy. Some models don’t understand the difference between sexy classy and being what they call “ratchet.” Find a good photographer that takes good pictures and don’t over do it going from shoots to shoots with different photographers it gets tiring. Respect your work; yes sometimes it is worth trading work with some photographer or for charity fashion show. But don’t keep doing free stuff when models should be the ones getting paid. Appreciate your work and talent.
