The Art of Posing and Using Movement
It's been 10 years since I've started my journey as a model and it has been a crazy ride. There have been so many different phases of my modeling, but there was one moment that COMPLETELY CHANGED MY CAREER!
After modeling for a few years I shot with a model scout, who was fantastic. While shooting, he only had one major criticism: I was posing, not moving. This shook me to my core. It was the best advise I've ever received. Every shot was pose-pose-pose; I was thinking not feeling the moment. I would scour fashion magazines for poses rather than create my own. When I learned how to move, that's when my career took off and changed my life.
By not thinking, just feeling the moment, I was able to create more elegant/graceful images that brought out everyone's work and made me a better model. Feeling the moment and being authentically myself suddenly gave each shoot a personal touch.
