Isobel Wren is a very pretty 110 lb 5″7″ 26 year old independent professional model residing in Richmond, VA.

As you see, she sports a curvy 34B-26-36 figure and has those deep dark honey-brown pools of brown eyes that will come with natural red hair …

Great equipment, used in a form and in combination with expressions which challenge, invite, and warning off those who are too timid.

“I’ve been modeling for something like six or seven years now …

Back and forth … Part time and full-time.

To get work, I rely on networking with other models and photographers, casting calls and travel notices and emailing folks directly.

This is pretty much the same way I have been getting work since I first started in modeling.

I got into modeling when someone told me ‘you should be a model‘.

He turned out to be a scammer … but I thought, ‘Well if this guy thinks I can do it, I bet I can.’

I looked up ‘model website‘ on the internet, found a few portfolio sites and put pictures up.

At first, I used to come up with creative ideas come about by writing to photographers with large, detailed lists of ideas that I wanted to shoot …

But pretty early on I got tired of photographers saying, ‘That’s a nice idea but I don’t want to shoot it’.

Now I tend to hang back unless someone absolutely insists I come up with ideas.

To get ready for a shoot, I always keep my nails nice, my hair dyed and my bikini line waxed.

I also go to the gym three days a week to stay in shape.

I have a stock of makeup and keep false eyelashes on hand.

The night before a shoot, I shower and make sure I wear clothes that won’t leave lines on my skin the day of the shoot.

Immediately before the shoot I brush my hair and put on a base coat of makeup.

When I get to the shoot, I ask the photographer what kind of eyes/lips he wants and I complete that.

For go to beauty products, I love Benetint’s Cheek Stain, Benetint’s Cheek StainMakeup Forever’s HD Foundation and their Kohl Eyeliner, Physician’s Formula Yellow Concealer, Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer, and Hot Body Lip Gloss.

Makeup Forever has really high quality products. Their foundation blends seamlessly and had lots of colors, looks good under all lights and cameras. Their kohl and liquid liners are easy to apply and stay on pretty well.

Physician’s Formula concealer is great for under eye circles (just put a little on your finger and blend).

Urban Decay’s primer is kind-of hard to get out of the container but if you have oily eyelids like me where shadow falls off in minutes it’ll keep your shadow on ALL NIGHT.

I was given a bunch of Hot Body lipgloss.  It looks and tastes great, wears a long time without being greasy or sticky.

While posing, I think about getting the best possible image.  How I’m posing, how I’m standing, where to move next …

Then sometimes I get distracted and think of things like my grocery list …..

What most people and aspiring models do not know is, modeling at this level is a lot harder and more time intensive than one would originally think.

You’ve got to do a lot of research;  and, you’re frequently on the hook for your own travel expenses, which can be difficult if your research misled you and people cancel on you.

If you’re young and tall, or any age and reasonably tall, you can get an agent and that’s a lot less work.

Being an independent model, most of your time goes into looking for work;  and, there’s not much of a support structure in place for getting consistent pricing and avoiding flakes or dangerous people.

These days, I do a mixed amount of trade and paid work.

I support myself with modeling,  so most of my work is paid … but it’s important to keep your portfolio up-to-date with the best possible work.

Most of the best possible photographers don’t pay, so trade is the way to get good work.”
