Haha thanks everyone, advice has helped alot! Think i am going to leave the acadamies, at the most try one and see what happens and carry on doing TFP at the same time Best wishes xx
No no don't try any acadamies. You'll do very well with some TFP shoots just turn up if you say you will. Don't want a bad reputation now. Just believe in your abilities even if all you've got is you look great and hey you do. Tyra Banks once said a model should never have to pay for a portfolio. Probably not one of the best statements ever expressed on a photo model hosting site.
Good luck I'm sure you'll do really well.
