Stephanie is the OMP Hot Model of the Week

Stephanie (OMP Model #399112) has been modeling off and on for the last seven years. The Hawaii resident’s main goal is to be an actress but she enjoys modeling as well.

OneModelPlace.com has helped Stephanie to meet people in the industry and book assignments. “I found out about the site while browsing the Internet. OMP has helped me find contacts to continue to be able to build my portfolio.”

Her artistic pursuits are balanced by a very different vocation – she is currently on active military duty. “My full time job inhibits me to be as free as I would like in my modeling career, but I try to keep my portfolio as updated as possible. My assignment job will be ending in a year-and-a-half, that’s when I will really be able to open up and experience the modeling industry for all it has to offer.”

To prepare ahead of time for photo shoots, Stephanie likes to make sure her clothes are ready and also where the location is at. “Then I would go and pamper myself a bit. Get my eyebrows and nails done to make sure I’m looking presentable.”

During a shoot, she tries to keep an open mind and listen to the photographer if they have any specific requests for the shoot. “I try to make sure my facial expressions are not crazy-looking. I tend to look hard and mean without trying to!”

Stephanie appreciates the ego boost she gets when others compliment her on her photos. “It’s always rewarding to make new contacts when someone sees your portfolio. It’s good to have open communication with your photographer, so you are both on the same page when you show up to the shoot.”

She advises her fellow models to know what they want as well as what they don’t want. “Don’t feel pressured to look a certain way or do a shoot that you are not comfortable with. If you are not sure, don’t hesitate to ask someone with more experience. If they are the professionals they say they are, they will take the time and help you out, so definitely get out there and make friends. Everyone has to look out for each other. It can be hard determining what is legitimate and what is not, so ask someone if you have a doubt. Also do your research. Watch how other models pose, including their facial expressions. Work with what you’re comfortable with and find your own style.”
