Santa Monica Fashion Shoot.
The fashion industry is very competitive, but then again what industry isn't? The clients decide what girl/guy or what look is right for their brand that season. If you don't get picked, it's not personal—it's business. A big part of modeling is simply waiting: Waiting for flights and taxis, waiting to be seen at castings, waiting at fashion shows to get your hair and make-up done or for the show to start. You have to learn how to entertain yourself and be patient.
