Recently I’ve been driving the local talent of models up within my local community of Derry. In a day where everyone is on Instagram and Facebook, it seems the choice of local models is 10 fold but nothing is further from the truth.
I find Belfast a hub with talented models but Derry somewhat lags behind and a lot of the time and models are afraid of a backlash from friends or family and online trolls. I believe Derry has some stunning and extremely talented models in our city and so far after less than a week of search I've found a few amazing models who literally took to the shooting like a duck to water and the feedback from models and family members has been amazing.
I have a series of workshops coming up over the summer and always find that "local" talent should be used.
Modeling is a great way to grow in confidence, meet new people, create amazing photographic art, potentially open a path for a part-time job or if you have a great look a full-time job!
