Modeling: I'll be taking photo shoots in bikini in PUBLIC. How can I feel less nervous?

The crazy part is that my photo shoors will be 2 blocks away from my college! I'm terrified that people who know me see me because the only appropriate setting to be in a bikini is at the beach. We are going to be by the water... so not really outside the setting. I'm still nervous. People will be around... mostly men... And. i know people will be recording or taking photos

  • If you seriously have a career as a model, you'll get over this quickly.

    I used to work as a video producer, and often worked with models and actresses. Models were so used to being naked or nearly naked that they rarely bothered to go to a dressing room to change - they thought nothing of stripping down to panties to change, even with crew and other people around on the set. Fast wardrobe changes are often part of the job, and so that becomes normal and common.

    The actresses were sometimes nearly as comfortable, while others didn't want anyone looking at them and always used the dressing room, but the models? Not a care in the world.

    • No, I'm doing modeling as a mean to make extra money. Not really trying to pursue it as a career. If advertisement agency elect me to model for a company, I can earn some great cash.

      Totally new to this

    • The best advice I can give you is: fake it 'til you make it. Even if you don't have confidence, PRETEND that you do, and project that confidence, and you're much more likely to get the job/gig.

    • Lol I dont know. I'll thumbs u up!

    • Ok thanks. Good luck hot mami. 😉

  • Focus only on the people you are working with. Tell them you're nervous and a professional will maintain a constant dialogue with you to help you focus on the work and not the people in the background. Good luck I'm sure it will be a great shoot. (:

  • Think "Hey, I'm a hot model and I don't care what any of you think." That's what I would do. It sounds like fun though. Try to enjoy it.

    • Yup, legit and everything.

    • then you should have a blast and make the most out of it! if people film or take pics of it who cares! (just don't give them anything special, like a flash and be careful of any nip slips or anything like that depending on how the bathing suit fits on you) brag about it! it'll be a wonderful story to tell people i'm sure unless you describe it like "hey... this one time i was modeling a bathing suit... that's it" it's your time to shine as cheesy as that sounds!

  • why worry? you are part of that project for a reason

  • Well to be a successful model you need confidence! You're obviously good looking if you've been chosen for a model shoot, If you've got it flaunt it. Most girls wear bikinis at beaches anyway so it's not going to make you look stupid.

    • But it's not really a beach. There's just a river around there

  • oh god lol I don't know what to tell you I was nervous doing a photo shoot clothed. there were people walking by and everyone would stop to look.

    Just try to ignore them. It'll really affect your photo shoot if you can't ignore them and act nervous. You will end up being more rigid.

    Sorry I have no advice haha
