Prior to embarking on my professional modeling adventures, I did not understand why on earth so many staff were necessary at photoshoots; you would think that just the photographer, model, and makeup person would suffice? As I learnt from putting together this tiny photoshoot for Anam’s Vault, it is not so. At my first ever casting call, I was taken aback to find multiple people in the room — as I have come to appreciate with time, friends, advertisements that we often consume in mere seconds took a village, and then some, to come together. It’s incredible. But I digress!
