Eight or nine years ago I was working with some guys who play some good tunes. Along the way, a girlfriend of one of the guys added me on Myspace. That’s where the story begins with Mindi.
Mindi and I hung out at the shows exchanged messages on Myspace and she had talked about modeling. As with many models, she had the dream of going to the Playboy Mansion. That left a lot in the open, getting pictures good enough to submit, getting some experience and dealing with the business aspects of modeling. We got together in an executive hotel room where we managed to get some good images. This shoot took many hours, but it was my fault since I suggested she bring a lot of clothes. As someone interested in fashion, she didn’t have a problem with that at all!
We wound up for the next year or more, meeting up and doing whatever we felt we could do. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the equipment I have now and couldn’t do what I wanted. But we did okay with what we had to work with.
Not long after our last shoot, I began to see how serious she was getting with her modeling. I offered whatever I could as far as advice in hopes it would help her in her endeavors.
<!–more–>It has been a long, busy and tiring road she has traveled. She worked on her book, improving her profile to be as good as possible, flying from one city to another, finishing college and making ends meet. From that time forward, it has evolved from her paying photographers for her shoots to quite the opposite. She has made quite a name for herself and has been published in many magazines, online magazines and has a few web sites of her own, not including Social Networking sites.
I’ve got to say, I feel good about being a part of this, regardless how large or small a part I was able to play in the process. There was no John Casablanca, Barbizon or Powers modeling schools needed along the way. She did this almost entirely by herself. I am not responsible for getting her where she is. I am responsible for letting her know she could do this.
Check out her profiles and web sites when you get a minute! (I don’t know what’s up anymore)
