New Models Pay Travel Cost
It is smart spending money to get a big city.
You know, the first time I went to New York I do have my stay covered, but I did pay for my plane flight.
The $300 that I spent to get to New York for - My agent at the time had a big house so we stayed there -but in reality I still tell people that I'm a New York style model because I was. I was there many times a shot with major magazines. It was huge. That $300 I spent I am still using from marketing today.
The $500 that I probably dropped on going to LA was worth the same thing. Cory Sorenson has shot every Oxygen, Physical, anything you can imagine. The fact that I got 12 hours with him just because of the relationship I created was worth $500 anytime. So it was worth it.
It's just like any other business if you're marketing yourself you're going to have to spend money to make money.
Should you spend $9,000, $10,000 to shoot with some crazy guy who thinks he's going to put you into everything? No.
But can you spend a nominal amount of money to get somewhere? Of course you can. You just got to.. not everything is paid for... you got to make some things happen.
So the next time I shop with Corey Sorenson I paid my plane flight, I got the cab from the airport, because again I was moving my feet and I created a relationship with one of the best guys out there. And the materials that I got with that, I still use to market with today on my website. You know, when you create good relationships with strong people that, you gotta go after it no matter what it costs if you want it bad enough.
Everybody thinks it just comes out of the blue and they say you're lucky but in reality you make your own luck.
