Natasha OMP Model #446217 is originally from Venezuela, where she started modeling about nine years ago. “I stopped for a while, now I’m back in the industryand more happier than ever that I found OneModelPlace.com.
The brunette beauty grew up among all boys, but at age 16 her mother introduced her to the world of pageants. “I fell in love with the dresses and the presentation and how pretty the models looked. That’s how this wonderful journey started.”
She describes herself as very fun to work with. “I get along with anybody, am very professional and punctual, and I love new ideas!”
After a work colleague introduced her to OneModelPlace.com, she created a portfolio right away. “In a matter of hours, I started getting offers and referrals. Then I booked my first photo shoot within a week!”
She feels that OneModelPlace.com can be a great window of opportunity for any model. “Your modeling career starts with OMP, there is no doubt about it! From photographers giving you advice to models helping out with tips here and there, it’s definitely worth it!”
Natasha has some helpful rituals that prepare her for photo shoots. “Before a shoot, my mind is thinking, ‘Let’s create great images that will capture the most attention!’ So I’ll try to relax as much as I can. Bubble baths are the best for relaxing time. Then when the day of the shoot arrives, I am ready to concentrate on my poses.”
She reminds her fellow models that the connection between the photographer and the model is a another key to a successful shoot. “You need to work in harmony with the photographer, and have the ability to work together as a team, to make the best of that photo shoot.”
One of the rewards of modeling for Natasha is when people admire the work she has done. “It’s important to me that people appreciate what I do. It makes me feel content. When photographers work with me and then say, ‘Let’s do another shoot,’ that’s also a great feeling! But one of the challenges of modeling is knowing that at any moment someone might reject you. You need to deal with it as an adult and don’t stop doing what you love just because someone rejected you. Remember — when one door closes, another opens.”
She has a favorite quotation that she wants to pass along to new models. “Don’t be afraid to fail. Don’t waste energy trying to cover up failure. Learn from your failures and go on to the next challenge. It’s okay to fail. If you’re not failing, you’re not growing. If your dream is being a model and you have a passion for it, show it to the world! No matter what anybody else tells you, follow your dream!”
