Photoshoot Safety Tips For Models

I originally wrote this article for Backstage.com as a contributing writing and reposted my writing to my blog with some tweaks. Click here to see the original article entitled "The safety tips every model must know!"


It can be super tempting to respond “yes!” the moment you get a modeling job offer due to the sheer excitement of booking work.
