One day when I was shopping at my favorite organic store I won a free photo shoot that was sponsored by a company that produces organic cosmetics. That shoot was very fun and I really enjoyed getting my make-up done by a professional make-up artist. The results were better than expected and I got a lot of positive feedback from friends and family.

A few weeks after that a good friend of mine told me that I should become a model. She also recommended creating a profile on a portfolio hosting page to connect with more photographers. As soon as I had done that, a large amount of messages containing offers for unpaid shoots appeared in my inbox. To build my portfolio I used those opportunities and did a number of unpaid shoots on the side while I was focusing on finishing school.

The more professional my portfolio started to look, the more photographers were willing to cover my travel expenses, outfits or the costs for a professional hair and make-up artist. There came a point when I felt like I was ready to charge for shoots I decided to stop doing unpaid photo shoots. This was probably about 6 or 7 years ago. Since then I have set up my own business, started studying at a University and have been traveling internationally to model for photography and videography projects when I could fit it into my schedule. It definitely beats most other student jobs like stacking supermarket shelves in both aspect: creative and financial.

The majority of offers now come from photographers, that usually don't pay models but want to take their portfolio to the next level by booking a professional model for a paid shoot. I never would have thought that I would be paid to work as a model one day.

With my Instagram growing there are even more opportunities opening up such as promoting brands, getting a commission and receiving free products. Working with so many artists and creative people in the most beautiful places is the most amazing thing about modeling. Every shoot is a new adventure that I am incredibly thankful for.
