I’ve been modeling for fun since the beginning of the year. I love getting makeup and hair done, then trying to find the best pose, something to show off both the clothes and the model. (That’s probably why I have a lot of self-portraits on my photostream lately — so I can do it all myself.)
My first ever location shoot was for Jay Romero‘s “Rainy Day Glamor” concept. I found myself and three other models at La Mesa Ecopark on a rainy Saturday in August (weeks before Typhoon Ondoy hit). I brought my own clothes and styled myself, while Peechi Dadula did my make-up. Here are my favorite shots:
Aside from that, I’m also involved in One Hot FABE, a fashion show on October 12 by the clothing brand I’ve modeled for. I sat for Vic a few weeks ago and worked with a new hairstylist and makeup artist — George Delfin and Nanan Villalba. I must say, I love how telenovela kontrabida I looked in the photos:
Funny thing is, I got my first full-page photo in a magazine without modeling for it. UNO Magazine‘s September issue put me on the front page of their Metroplex (events) section. It’s a photo of me accepting a gift bag during the magazine’s Bloggers & Contributors Night.
Which of these looks suit me better?
