ALWAYS USE OR TAKE HOME HOTEL TOILETRIES

Interesting article in the Telegraph about more waste, I’m shocked and again angry at how much us as a society waste on products.  I’m so glad to hear of many hygiene banks now opening for people on the breadline, especially in this country. I try and do my bit and donate as much as I can, products only to my local shelter.  I would never give money to all these big charities because I don’t trust them.  There are a lot of scams out there and a lot of charity bosses just want money for their £250k a year salaries.

I remember my parents telling me when they were in Africa, (My Father’s ship was stationed there) the crew on the ship used to throw the soap and toiletries overboard to Africans who were beyond grateful.  This story always saddened me as a child, how can people suffer like that in the world living in such poverty, they found joy in a bar of soap.  We should all be so grateful.  I always love to use the hotel toiletries, especially if it’s Molten Brown or Eve Lom like in some of the top hotels.  I’ve never been a high maintenance kind of woman, just simple soap and deodorant will do me.

MY MOTHER’S BIRTHDAY TODAY

Many Happy Returns to my Mother, who is celebrating her 75th Birthday today, she looks good for her age, still has her youthful spirit and STILL working, no retirement.  Working because she wants to not because she needs to.  That’s why I adore the Baby Boomer generation and my Generation X, the amount of good we put into this world.

My Mother spent the Sunday getting up at 4am to go to work on a new film, she works as a Support Artist.  She doesn’t get the ‘Elderly Roles’ or ‘Grandma Roles’.  Like her and many of her friends, they still look young and dress on trend (like I get the young Student roles).

 

On set with pal Mary.

HAND MODELLING: Another string to my bow

Enjoying the Hand modelling Jobs.  I’ve been in many commercials now, well my hands have too and TV.  One can earn from £200 per day upwards, depending on the brand.

How to Become a Hand Model?

Practice how to present and hold your body part in front of the camera to showcase it in the best light. Surprisingly, there is an art to how you place your hand, position your legs or arch your foot without looking lifeless or stiff. The poses need to appear natural, which can be difficult when in a set up situation. Therefore, practicing in front of a mirror or friend focusing on the body part that you wish to model will significantly help. Even taking pictures and reviewing how your pose appeared when transferred through the lens could be vital to your success.

My hands on the job – Pics from this Month (By the way none of my pics are airbrushed, you know I dislike anything fake).

 

 

How to Make a Hand Model Portfolio?

Hire a professional photographer to take shots of your hand poses. Only include high quality images within your portfolio so amateur images will not suffice. The idea is that your evidence of work impresses an agency or employer. Therefore, it is important that you perfect every aspect considering layout, format and each photograph.

How Much Does a Hand Model Earn?

Hand models could earn up to £5,000 per day. Big brands require the perfect hands to appear in their advertisements and campaign imagery. A worldwide campaign would pay up to £5,000 whereas an editorial shoot pays around £250 – £500.

Hand modelling can be extremely lucrative with advertisers willing to pay a large sum of money. Since hands are unrecognisable they can be used in a variety of campaigns and more jobs are available. However, the industry is very unpredictable and you may not earn a steady income.

Contact A Model Agency

Once you have fully prepared it is time to approach a model agency who specialises in your domain. Investigate the establishments that are experienced in the sector to locate a modelling agency that has strong links and connections. It is important to feel comfortable with the agency and feel safe in the knowledge that they are doing their utmost to secure modelling work for you. Apply to as many as possible to keep your options open and find an agency suitable for your needs.

Even though a model agency will take a percentage of your earnings, they will be able to find you work. It is their reward for securing you the role in the first place. Choose a specialist agency that has a lot of connections in the industry. Keep your options open and apply to many different companies who you think you will be well suited to.
