Saraa (OMP Model #372654) started modeling about two years ago. In that short time, she has accomplished quite a lot. She got her start as a hairshow model, has appeared in magazines and ad campaigns, and most recently placed third in the country in the Runway Magazine National Model Search.
A photographer that Saraa worked with suggested she join One Model Place, and ever since then the site has been extremely helpful for her career. “I have been able to network with so many people…and so much of my work has been seen because of my profile. I have even made a couple of great friends since I began on OMP. I am so thankful to the administrators on OMP for their interest in my work.”
Saraa describes herself as “easy to work with, enthusiastic and I have been told that I can pull off many different looks. My favorite shoots are themed shoots, particularly vintage style.”
She prepares for photo shoots in this way. “I always make sure I get lots of sleep the night before, that my hair is clean and my nails are perfect. And I bring lots of food!”
The rewards and challenges of modeling for Saraa are many. “The greatest reward of modeling for me is working with all of the people involved in a shoot. The greatest challenge for me has been making sure that I eat enough food during the shoots to keep up my energy!”
She has some good advice for models trying to break into the industry. “My best advice would be to stay positive and just keep on doing test shoots. You can never have too much practice and it’s great experience to learn to work with everyone involved.” Her personal goals as a model include some day making a living as a print model.
