Girl Friday's eye set on professional modelling career
WHEN it comes to being a professional model, there's much more to it than looking pretty on camera.
A determined Gladstone teen found out just what it will take for her to follow her dream during a 10-week model boot camp with Voguehouse.
Diminutive beauty Kaitlyn Delioglanis, 18, graduated from the Voguehouse course a few weeks ago. During the 10 weeks she learnt about building a website, networking, confidence, nutrition, exercise and how to work with photographers on shoots.
"It helped me build up my portfolio," she said.
"I've gotten a few people who now want to work with me."
Ms Delioglanis has always wanted to become a model and after others encouraged her to try it she started getting serious about the idea last August. She has model
led for photo shoots in Gladstone, Brisbane and the Gold Coast in a variety of styles, including editorial, glamour and creative.
"I don't want to do catwalk modelling, my body is not long enough," she said.
"I look back at photo shoots of when I first started to where I am now and there's a big difference."
Now working in retail at Cavaliers Menswear Ms Delioglanis said she would travel for modelling jobs and planned to move to Brisbane after saving money this year.
