I was about to say "probably not" based on this image, but then took a long hard look at your GG portfolio. You ave some great images and look very professional, like a professional model. OS my answer changed to -- "Yes" I think you can make it. Just shoot for the types of modeling that fit your looks and body type and you'll do fine.

Sorry to ask Stephanie, but, is this a trick question?

NO it is not a trick question. I have been trying to make it almost my whole life and have not had much luck.

not trying to be funny, in my opinion, you are stunning, sorry if it's not the answer you are looking for, I'm just starting on the ladder. Marty really seems to know what he is talking about though, and this is the best place for you to get help and advice you need.

Best of luck, I'm sure you will make it.

I agree with Marty & Peter.
I definitely think you will make it.
My suggestion would be to work with
other photographers (several) to expand
your portfolio.
Like Marty said, you have some great shots
in there already. The more photogs that you
work with, the better you will feel about
your chosen profession.
I think you are smokin hot, if that helps [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Best of luck,
Steve

What does "make it" mean to you?

If it means be a runway model, the answer is no, without even looking at your images. 5' 3" ain't gonna make it in that area.

You are obviously a pretty girl and you can create great images as shown by your portfolio.

Hi Stephanie,
I'm rather new in here myself, but what I've experienced and from what I've seen, a person can do anything they want. You are definetly beautiful, but that is not enough I feel in this business. It takes networking and exposure, oh, also timing.
My personal opinion from your portfolio here, is yes you can be a professional model. As Marty said, you just need to find your niche and go for it. I think your face is very beautiful for headshots, and lingerie and sportswear could be an avenue. Hook up with a few different photographers so you can have diversity in your style and theirs.
This is just my 2 cents worth. If your ever in Texas, look me up and maybe we can have a photo session. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Keep posting, it helps. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Good Luck

I Stephanie,

You "Can Make It". Market yourself in every way you can get your name out there. Do workshops, knock on every door you can, send photos to every agency out there; Ford, Elite, and the rest of them. Edison tried 3000 times to make a light bulb. He did not say he failed 2999 time but found 2999 ways not to make a light bulb. Be persistent don’t give up on your dream because things have not gone your way thus far.

Stephanie:

As a New York City runway model, your chances are very slim and I say slim because some shorter models have made the big time there but it took years of perserverance.

As a glamour model-yes indeed you can make it but there are other avenues you might want to persue such as promotional, commercial and editorial modeling. It will depend on your determination to succeed if you will make it or not but you definetely have a look that will make bookers stop and take a second look at your credentials.

Rick D.
