Hello all,

If I was to become a full time model, and travel the country. Would you book me for paid assignments?

Best wishes,

Nel.

in all honesty, for both full time and part time models, i wouldnt rely on it as a main source of income as work can dry up at any time of the year, especially christmas. there are very few on here who are full time models and have a constant stream and steady work flow all year round. I guess the only way u can judge on how u would do personally is see how much ur already in demand, its difficult to predict, as u may well have several photographers reply to this post who would pay u but when it comes to the time they may not have the money to pay u and therefor u dont get booked, and thats also very common especially now, money is so tight and everybody is struggling.

good luck either way cheeky

Yes, i would, assuming we agree on a work type.

Hi Nel

I think you are a beautiful model albeit a bit on the short side but I wouldn't contemplate relying on modeling as full time employment at the moment, I just don't think there's enough paid assignments to go round?

Gazbiker: I think I'd take a part time job on to keep me a float, i'd love to let my full time job take the back seat for a while instead of my modelling. Thank you and your right, I am a little shorter then i'd like

Socialdisaster: Thank you, I love your work. I'd love to collaborate once i'm out of full time employment.

Its a bit of a tricky one - when you start off you are much more in demand and it does lull you into a false sense of how it will always be.

There are repeat bookings of course but it would be very difficult to make a living on them alone. If you are able to find a part time job that is very flexible - as in it lets you take weeks off fairly often to tour then you should totally give it a go. Or even do it on a 6 month trial basis. I wouldn't leave a well paid job you enjoy to model though especially if its difficult to find new employment in your arse.

I already thought you did all of that to be honest.

If I ever had the money (then either my luck would have totally changed or I would be days away from being arrested...) then I'd happily book you.
Can someone tell me how to put text in this box???

massive lol.

back to the question though, honestly no, I don't think your portfolio screams out that you're experienced and adept, it's got variety but it goes from cheesey to really nice and doesn't fit together very well imho

i'd think yeah i'd shoot her tf but there's nothing that'd make me want to part with my pennies
