Liz Ashley OMP Model #39811 is one of the most recognizable members of OneModelPlace.com. The Houston, Texas native has been modeling for almost nine years, and her lithe form and expressive posing definitely leave a lasting impression.
Liz says she has always been a very creative person, ever since she started drawing and painting at a young age. At age 14, she signed with a local agency, doing commercial modeling and runway.
However, she chose to focus on school and modeling fell by the wayside. Luckily, the art gods would not let such a muse go easily. Four years later she was approached to model again and began getting connected to the online modeling world via OneModelPlace.com.
“OMP helped me to become visible on a global level and communicate with people from all over the world. This helped open doors for me in ways I cannot describe. Some of these people I am friends with to this day, and I would not have met them without OneModelPlace.com.”
Looking forward, she hopes to use modeling as a vessel to see the world. “I cherish my friendships with those I have met, and hope to keep life-long friendships and create beautiful images.”
Here is some advice Liz wants to pass along for models just starting out. “When you are new, you have to realize that you have to work your way up. Have patience. Build your book by working with photographers with names or talent. And understand that modeling is like going to the gym, a lot of it is all about showing up. Never compromise your beliefs and comfort level. If it sounds too good to be true, it is.
