-- "Modelling is more than just about fashion..." begins mentor Jordan – a model and entrepreneur with 25 years' experience – "The main aspects of being a model are no longer based on aesthetics – many photographers and agencies look for diversity and versatility, and will often list attitude, punctuality, reliability and ability to follow direction higher than height, weight or hair colour. We focus on the practical aspects of learning for models whilst at the same time encouraging their individuality to shine and confidence to blossom."
Established Canberra photographer and Devojka Talent Agency owner, Tina adds, "As an agent and photographer – I look for models who can connect with their emotions and understand how to relay these emotions through the lens, as well as models who can follow direction and who are confident to move in a way that suits the vibe of the shoot.
All photographers work differently;
according to their style, skillset and personality – so as an agent I want my models to be able to adapt to working with various mediums and professionals... and at the Models 101 Workshop, models actually get to implement the lessons we teach them throughout the day."
The workshop is a one-day intensive course based in Canberra and offers tasks about mind-set, movement and runway... The practical tasks allow models to assess their own ability, as well as improve in areas based on their mentors' feedback.
"Models 101 embrace a diverse group of models. The workshop is designed with models in mind, however we do have people attend who just want to experience the day and want to boost their confidence for their blogging platforms, public personalities or enhance their performance skills." Jordan shares.
