Rebecca at Model Casting

For Day Two of Style Fashion Week Model Casting, I decided to focus on one model and her dream. Rebecca Burroughs, the youngest of four girls, is taking a year off from college to pursue her modeling dream. Waiting in line for the casting provides a natural networking event. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The street art I noticed the day before seemed a good place to snap a photo.

The casting process is short and a place for hope and dreams. Even this 82-year-old actress decided to try.  It was nice to see models sharing advice and information about other castings and their experiences. Once you get inside, you check-in on the computer, place your comp cards on the table and get a chance to sit down for a minute until it’s your time to walk.

After the Model Casting, Rebecca and I walked to Ippudo East Village where I tried authentic Hakata tonkotsu pork soup (Ramen) and some wonderful little pork buns.

We hung out in Union Square Park all day talking and watching people. Rebecca is a voracious reader so we also spent some time at Barnes & Noble; took a quick run through Sephora and a stop at Starbucks.

We said our goodbyes at the subway station. I’m looking forward to another shoot with Rebecca with hair, makeup, and a few outfit changes. I hope she gets chosen to walk in this season’s style fashion week so I can get some images of her on the runway. Thank you, Rebecca, for showing me some of your city and sharing so much of your time with me.
