hey guys so lets talk about the little pathway I took today on this journey. I found this page on Facebook called http://plus-size-modeling.com/ and of coursed I liked it, but then when I got on the page I realized it was basically a lot of pictures and quotes and im not going to lie I became a little discouraged. Here I am like dang what steps can I possible take. I wrote under pictures asking for guidance on how to become a plus size model and no answers or even comments from others. it was a little stressful, but then I saw this link under a picture and I wanted to see what this thing was about. the website is called http://exploretalent.com. ive never heard of the site, but I thought hey what bad can come from trying. I made a profile and I told all my interest and then there it was, a list of all cast callings. Then came the crazy part of the profile THE CHARGES! I didn’t know if I wanted to put any money forth yet , due to not knowing this page, or even knowing if this was a really good paying site. I just left it alone after making the profile, but the next day I got a call telling me about the cast calls for movies and a photo shoot. I was excited untill he told me in order to get the cast call I would have to be in a membership with them. that part scared me because what if I put my money forth to these people and it’s a fake gig. I then started to ask my peers have they heard or even know about this page. I got one response telling me it was good , so now here I am thinking about making this dang membership of thirty-six dollars a month so I can be a model. do you think it’s a bad decision? I want to hear from you guys!
Hi I’m ShaDawna Moore if you don’t know already and I’m a newbie to modeling and I’m interested in plus size modeling. I don’t know where to begin, I haven’t done this before and I’m willing to learn and met new people. I just want to start my dream. I’ve never modeled or took any professional pictures before, but I did take classes with Barbizon two years ago. There they taught me poses, walks, how to act in a monologue, how to sit, and the difference between five-minute faces and full face makeup. I also did a pageant while in college it was for Mrs. BE which is a newer pageant at Langston University for plus size women. I am blogging to help myself out and also help out others who are not afraid to take on beginners getting their foot in the door. I’m looking for modeling gigs and photo opportunities too. I’m no stranger to the camera. I love taking pictures. And I have a very outgoing personality. I’ve always been told if you have a dream and you want it to come true don’t settle for less go out and chase it and accomplish it with a bang. My dream is to model and be somebody in this world. I feel that it’s my calling and they say if you love what you’re doing that you will never work a day in your life. I see plenty of women get discouraged due to their size, but not me this girl is going to stand up for what she believes in and forall the women that are scared to show their flaws and make them become flawless. Follow me on this journey.
