Yesterday I called the state department of Licensing and they said my agency license status was "pending" which means that a human had put their hands on my file. Which is great news! Just a few more weeks :). In the mean time, I have started to develop model portfolios. I have 17 models right now!! 6 Women, 5 men, 6 girls (preteens mostly). I also have about 6 baby models. So I guess technically that makes 23!!
Today we did photo shoots for one of my male, female and preteen models prospectively. They all did incredibly well. I know they were all relieved to get positive feedback from me, and I was relieved that I wasn't crazy for presenting them with the opportunity to pursue this kind of career.
In order to be a model you should not only be photogenic but have an inner charisma, that shines through the lens, and today my models shined like sparkly little jewels. I was so proud, and now even more anxious for my license to get in my hot little hands.
Tomorrow I will shoot two more models, both preteen girls. One from Fresno and the other is traveling from Visalia.
I am still on the look out for some cute, charismatic boys. If you know of any, please encourage them to apply on my website. www.mcintyremodel.com I promise I don't bite, in fact I smile a lot instead. Just ask my 23 current models.
It's starting to sink in... :)
