For me personally, photography and modelling go hand in hand. Based on my experiences, they have definitely complemented one another and influenced me into being better in both roles. I can honestly say that becoming a model has allowed me to see things from a different point of view and made me a better photographer because of it. In order to create something, you have to understand the importance of all the different roles involved; everyone plays a part in creating something.
As creatives, we have to respect and appreciate the importance of our fashion designers, set designers, stylists, makeup artists, beauty teams, designers, production teams, assistants and all the people involved in any creative project. Without one another, we couldn’t exist in this industry. We have to inspire and collaborate with one another in order to push boundaries in creativity. If I hadn’t started modelling, I don’t think I would be the image-maker that I am today or aspiring to be.
