I am new to the modeling industry. Im 21 years old and Live in Murrieta, CA but always go to Los Angeles and San Diego. I am Panamanian(hispanic) and Jamaicand and am a Former Semi Professional Football player and work for a Security Company, however want to push myself in the direction of modeling/acting. I was a model at Hollister Co. for 2 years and have also Modeled for Smaller Stores such as Bridal and Tux companies. I enjoyed being in front of the Camera and loved walking down runways.
I'm still in the process of developing my portfolio, and I'm primarily looking for local photographers who are willing to offer Trade for Print or TFCD. I am willing to Travel to most areas in southern California, and anything too far I would hope to have fuel expenses covered.
I was always told as i was working at a Fast food Restraunt for Some time that I should Do Modeling, because I had a Nice Smile, however I always thought that I never had what it took to do so. However as clothing stores started recruiting me asking me to model/work for their company, thats when I decided that maybe I should give it a try. After doing a few casting calls, and working with other models, I then decided to try and turn this opportunity to hopefully a career.
I wouldn't say I have strength's in acting besides my personality and confidence, however modeling I've been told that I have what it takes to do it as long as I devote myself to it.
If there are any ideas or opportunities to strengthen my portfolio and gain experience with models in photographers, please feel free to message me and we can discuss.
