    So I have a tremendous opportunity to model for D&G but the catch is this will be my first time modeling.

    Does anyone have any advice, any experience to share or anything to be of help I would really appreciate it thanks!

    Cute pics! You have to start somewhere, right? Try not to fall of the runway, or be a deer in headlights when the cameras start clicking. Good luck!!!icon_smile.gif

    Don't become the victim of threats and harassement. Always know who you are and stand up for yourself. Remember to see things in a bigger picture, to understand that saying "no" in certain circumstances will be a better choice, even if it isn't necessarily the easier choice to make.

    wow - how did you manage to score that gig with no experience?
    I've been with an agency in the past but never did anything international cuz I'm too short lol
    Now I help scout for Canada's #1 model agency... you should PM me and tell me the story about how this all came to be - I'm interested in hearing it.
    Good luck.

    no offense, but if it's d&g, then you need to work on those abs

    If he already got the job then he's probably just what they're looking for.

    Yeah don't pay $$ for anything up front or for agencies/agents to represent you ! Honestly, Dolce and Gabbana is a very well-known famous gay brand, their models are super hot, tall, Tan, Italian and Foreign/Sexy ! I do think you're cute but not D&G standards, try to get more tan/darker/exotic and work on those abs and grow your hair out a bit? !! Modeling is a very competitive industry, be careful of the drugs, alcohol and the people you sleep with and prepare to put yourself out there for any assignments. icon_wink.gif

    Yes. I've had so many friends be duped into thinking they have auditions to model with big companies like D&G or whatever to find out its a scam. DON'T give them ANY money.

    And no offense, but its doubtful that D&G hires some one with no modeling experience.

    While I am inclined to agree with you, until we know the whole story I think we have to give him the benefit of the doubt...

    Agreed, D & G usually hire native tan looking Italian male models anyway, they don't even hire tan/exotic Latino-looking models, the OP looks kinda WASP, might be hard to break into this gig! Just look at their campaign ads ! icon_twisted.gif

    Define "tremendous opportunity to model for D&G"? Trust me when I tell you that "The Catch" may be more than that it's your first time modeling. How did this "opportunity" come about -- through an agent...or through some two-bit wannabe photographer posing as a "talent scout"?

    jprichva saidWell, as I understand it, the first thing an aspiring model needs is a reliable source for cocaine.
    I guess this means I'll never be a model. icon_sad.gif
