What is the best advice you would give to someone that is interested in being apart of playboy?
Playboy is a company who reviews so many women it would make your head spin! There are so many editors, and the editors shift all the time. The best, general advice I could give you is learn the players. Know them by name & title. All this info is available online if you do your research right. Learn the playboy photographers in your region. Harass them all over the country. You can open submit on the playboy.com site using snap shots and following the instructions carefully. Don’t skip any part of the submission process (like not sending IDs, etc). There are castings, parties, shooting with photographers to sell image sets to Playboy… the options are really endless but baffle so many girls who want nothing more than to be affiliated!
Like with anything: ask yourself what your goal is. Write out how to get there from where you are right now. Work on that list for a little while each day. The more time you spend on it each day, the sooner you will get a payout. Balancing modeling with work and school and family can be done…but its not easy! Write out what you want to see happen for yourself. Identify the barriers to success and how to tear them down. (Example: “I want to be in Playboy but I know I need to be toner” Make it top priority to go to the gym while balancing everything else in your life. Example: “I want to do a photo shoot with _____ to sell to Cyber Club but I have nowhere to shoot!” Make it a part of your weekly goals to contact and resource out with night clubs, wealthy friends with nice homes who’d consider allowing you to shoot there, budget for a boutique hotel in your city, etc.)
Every barrier to your goal has ways around it. Never feel stuck, never stop trying. It might take years but that is ok! Be driven but not obsessed. Obsession will make you unable to maintain the other demands in your life and you will suffer because of your obsession. Channel it in positive & constructive ways!!
