Tara was recommended to come meet me by her cousin Te Manava as she wanted to get into modelling. Every time I meet a model I meet them in a public place like a cafe so I can suss them out. Quite often models don't look anything like the photos they have sent me or there is a risk that we just won't get along because of our personalities. If I don't get along with them it will show in the photos. For the above to happen they have to show up first hahaha.
I have learnt to walk away if I feel they have falsely represented themselves or I don't get along with them as a person. I don't want to waste my time or theirs and meeting in a public place makes it easier to walk away.
Tara showed up. She looked like her photos I had received. She was a little shy but we got along. We did a shoot and then she shot with a few friends of mine and now she is signed with Kirsty Bunny Model Management.
And then she moved to South America.
