Seems like more and more are popping up in the last few years, you will find a lot of interesting faces walking the isles and between the booths . 3) Fashion Meetup group ( http://www.meetup.com ) - whether the models subscribed to the group, coming with a friend or part of the presentation team, I found it easy to approach them in this setting . Online : While MM become too saturated, and CL quality of models is highly questionable, I found going to a more niche sites work the best for me. http://starnow.com - star now is a paid site, collecting fees from both the photographer and the model, which ensure more serious people. Problem is that I had a number of casting calls with too few applicants. bottom line it's a gamble, when it's working it's great, when it doesn't you loose money and time . https://fotoshoot.com - I pretty much adopted them as my casing calls center, two reasons - 1. They have casting call management interface that makes my life easier . 2. They actually proactively searching and contacting models on behalf of my casting call, so I get more quality candidates . http://backstage.com - I had relatively good results casting for video ads, not so much for photoshoot . Bonus Round : Networking NETWORKING NETWORKING .... I recruited more models through networking than any of the above channels. Obviously keeping in touch with models I've worked with in the past is essentials, many times I will work with the same model multiple times, or just ask them to refer other models for a specific shoot.

","body_sanitized":"Camaree Barr, 22-year-old model, was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. She began modeling at age 15 when she enrolled in the Barbizon School of Acting & Modeling. After graduating from the program, she won the school's Acting/Modeling Competition in 2010. In an effort to pursue academics she went off to Carnegie Mellon University. While managing her studies, she became involved with different organizations. She was a member of Lunar Gala, a group of models and student designers that put on a fashion show every year for the school. After collaborating with Lunar Gala and other modeling clubs she realized how deep her passion was for the modeling world. Barr has officially pursued a career in the modeling and fashion industry. She travels frequently and does a variety of runway and print work. She has graced the cover of The G3 Agency Magazine and has also been the face of Fashion Awards MD advertising campaign. 1) What inspired you to be a model? After doing a few photo shoots, I realized the effect those experiences had on me mentally. Before that, I was over thinking everything I did in life. I was always trying to please others and pushing myself to meet unrealistic expectations. I operated on a basis of fear. Fear of failing, fear of making a mistake, fear of letting someone down... those were my motivators. But in front of the camera, I found solace and freedom. There was no fear, no convoluted thoughts, just me doing whatever comes to mind, whatever fits the role. It's hard to explain, but when you find what you're destined to do...you just know. 2) Do you have a role model or icon that you look up to? I admire Cara Delevingne. She manages to convey her spirited personality in every shot and even on the runway. I've never seen anyone quite like her. She isn't afraid of who she is and she expresses herself so freely. It's really a beautiful thing to be able to witness. Her social media presence gives an unfiltered look into her life and even her character. I aspire to maintain my identity as I progress in my modeling career in a similar, fearless fashion. 3) Tell me about your first time onset as a model, what was it like? My first photo shoot was absolutely nerve-wracking in the beginning. I was so excited that it was actually happening, but I was terrified that I might do something wrong. As I was getting my makeup done, Danielle Lewis told me to relax and just try to have fun with it. I was sitting there in front of the camera smiling and staring directly into the lens. The photographer, Jeff Butler, noticed and told me it was okay to look away and that this wasn't like just going to get my picture taken, this was a creative shoot. When he said that I felt something click in my mind. I began to just move freely. It was amazing. For the first time in my life I stopped thinking. My mind was clear and open. I was so in the moment and Jeff was able to capture that. I began to growl and jump and just have fun on set. Once I let go, it was incredible how much easier it became to deliver great photos. 4) What is the best professional advice you have been given? The best advice I've been given is to stay true to myself. There are certain styles of shooting I've always said I would never do. And I haven't, not even once gone back on my word. I don't want to compromise who I am for anyone or anything. It really helps me set boundaries and make my decisions carefully. I know a lot of girls from my hometown that gave up parts of themselves in order to \"get ahead\" and it almost never pays off. I have to be a positive role model while pursuing my craft. I want to be an example for not only my siblings, but other people out there with dreams. You should never have to lose your identity to be successful. 5) What has been your hardest obstacles as a model? I draw my energy from my feet when I pose, so when I'm doing head-shots I prefer to stand up. This is very limiting when a photographer is going for a certain angle or certain lighting and/or it is more convenient for their process if I am sitting down. It's like I feel trapped if I'm forced to sit. I've been working on this more because I have been doing a lot of beauty work lately. I'm finding that certain expressions can be achieved in a seated position and that I don't have to be grounded in order to shoot. It's kind of weird because I sometimes sit for shots that include my entire body and I can find that energy and movement just fine; perhaps because those shots don't rely strictly on facial expression, since the eye is drawn to the other elements. 6) Do you always encompass a character when you are shooting or on set? I always encompass a character when I'm shooting. I listen to the ideas of the creative team and I interpret them in my own way in order to bring these visions to life. If I am portraying a character I am no longer concerned with how Camaree looks and it makes for a better shot. I'm not worried about making \"ugly\" or \"unbecoming\" facial expressions if they portray the correct emotions and vibes. 7) You mentioned that you travel frequently for work, where was your favorite job so far and why? My favorite job so far was when I went to Lorton, VA with hair stylist Erika Evans. We linked up with photographer Todd Stewart Willis to do a really amazing body paint shoot. I had never done body paint before, but it was so freeing. It's funny how a few layers of paint and glycerin can feel like a full outfit. I had fun doing all sorts of crazy poses and out of this world concepts. 8) How do you stay in shape? To be honest, I don't really exercise much. I do however, try to eat healthy foods. I even choose the vegetarian quite often when I eat out. 9) What do you enjoy most about modeling? I enjoy the limitless possibilities of concepts to shoot. Every time I step on set there's a new vision and a fresh idea I have to work with. The fact that every job is different is exciting and makes it impossible to get bored. Also, I meet so many outstanding people with every project. 10) What are your future aspirations? My near future aspirations are to get signed with a reputable agency so I don't have to search as much for gigs myself. My long term aspirations are to become a household name. I want everyone to know me. If I can build a big enough name for myself I can reach more people. I ultimately want to mentor and groom young talent into marketable models. I want to give them the answers I couldn't find and the opportunities to succeed that they otherwise may not have access to. I want to help others pursue their dreams.","author":{}},{"photo":{"bucket":"fs.articles","key":"42226.8212443056.png","url":"https://fs-a.imgix.net/main.images/42226.8212443056.png"},"status":"A","publish_time":"2015-08-10T16:58:10.926Z","_id":"591619b2730a3178baa69b9b","category_id":"5915dff64aa9ff5135af79c4","title":"KFC Announces an All in One Printer and Chicken Bucket ","user_id":"5915e27275a8e05206a96f67","slug":"kfc-announces-printer-and-chicken-bucket","homepage_summary":"KFC has created a simultaneous printer and a chicken bucket, and it has sparked everyone's interest.

It is time for everyone to take a hold of kick-starting their own careers and hop aboard the social media train. Recently there have been many accounts that have gained mass recognition ranging from models, photographers, singers, comedians, etc. Tip 1. SELF PROMOTE You need to be your biggest fan. If you can't sell yourself as being the best why would anyone else believe in you? Start off by Working on your Fotoshoot.com profile. Make yourself stand out by only posting flattering pictures, you want people to stumble on your page and be wowed. The better your profile is and the more notoriety you have, the more people will want to work with you. If you aspire for modeling to be your career than you must take it seriously and be legitimate. Always remember that \"selfies\" do not count as professional photographs. Having a strong portfolio is essential, make sure it has enough content. Your portfolio should expand as needed, and having a low budget is no excuse for a lack of variety. There are plenty of photographers that will do TF's and let you keep photos for a portfolio rather than paying you for your time. Be sure to keep all other social media profiles flattering as well. Although your frappucino looks delicious, how is that picture going to help your career? Every move you make should be intentional and well thought out in hopes to further promote yourself. There is no rule that says you are limited to having one profile, if you feel the need to have a more personal account then separate the two. As long as you maintain one as professional and solely to benefit your career, than that is all that matters. It is free and the best form of advertisement to get you started. Tip 2. USE THE TOOLS SOCIAL MEDIA HAS TO OFFER As silly as it may sound, hashtags were created for a reason. Be aware of what is trending and add the most popular hashtags being used. This will help people find you and since you have already been working on your profile, they most likely will follow you. It is likely that if someone were searching the hashtags you used, they are interested in the type of pictures you're posting which gives them more incentive to follow you. So hashtag, hashtag, hashtag! It is also helpful to add your location. This will increase the amount of people and organizations that are able to find your account, and getting them there is half the battle. As weird as you may think direct messaging is, it's not. There are plenty of pages/accounts that are dedicated to featuring models, photographers, make-up artists etc. Send a flattering picture over with your information and ask to be mentioned. What is the worst thing that can happen? If they don't feature you that's okay, you have nothing to lose. So, take risks and sell yourself!! The more popular of a page you can get featured on, the better because that means more potential followers. The more followers you gain, the more recognition you will get. Tip 3. CONNECT Connect all of your social media platforms together. Sharing links between your various websites is a sure way to increase exposure. Posting on other sites makes people aware of your other accounts and will help to create more traffic to your profiles. Tip 4. KEEP YOUR PRESENCE Maintaining your social media accounts can sometimes feel like a full time job. Be sure to post frequently so that it doesn't seem like you have forgotten about your profiles. Don't overdo it by posting ten photos in one day, you want people to stay interested not get annoyed. Keep your work updated so that people can see what you have been doing and how you have grown as a professional. Tip 5. NETWORK Get involved within the industry and meet people. Search for suggested friends or followers to find people with similar interests. One of the keys to success is building and maintaining relationships. Reply to everyone that reaches out or comments to you, do not ignore anyone. You want to build a good reputation and encourage others to establish professional connections with you.","author":{}},{"photo":{"bucket":"fs.articles","key":"42226.7670693519.jpg","url":"https://fs-a.imgix.net/main.images/42226.7670693519.jpg"},"status":"A","publish_time":"2015-07-29T19:07:15.886Z","_id":"591619b2730a3178baa69b94","category_id":"5915dff64aa9ff5135af79c5","title":"The Blogger on a Mission to End Cyber Bullying","user_id":"5915e27275a8e05206a96f67","slug":"blogger-ending-cyber-bullying","homepage_summary":"See how one blogger created an amazing video to fight back at cyber bullying.
