To Model or Not to Model!

The ‘natural shot’!

Some time ago, I noticed ‘mature’ models were gaining popularity. Big time. And though I am exactly Daphne Selfe, I thought I would give it a try too.

So ‘contacting a modelling agency’ was on my list of ’25-new-things-to-do-in-2020′. And I registered with Dutch Casting. For my portfolio, I had to have my pictures taken at the agency (they are now on dutchcasting.nl).

I have no idea, if I will ever work as model. But it was fun, and I did take the plunge. I got a series of portraits I really like, that I can use myself for social media or my website. So here they are: a natural shot, a glamour shot, and something in between (I call this my ‘granny shot’).

The yellow jacket is one of my favourite vintage jackets by Louis Feraud, that I found at a vintage kilo sale. I paid around 15 euros for it.
