While flipping through the May issue of Vogue I noticed models in these ads and editorials were Walking This Way, hence my Walk This Way modeling photo contest going on right now. Here are the details to submit and some images below to be inspired:
Submit to win a signed copy of Short Stuff: on the job with an x-small model and be featured on this blog.
To submit to the contest email me a photo/s of yourself in motion, on the go, as if it's for an ad for a lifestyle product (please send low res 72 dpi photo/s) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: Tuesday, May 3rd! at 6 PM!
Even if you are not giraffe tall in print modeling being able to show some personality and movement while you model is a good thing. ~Isobella

I notice how some petite fashion and petite advocating website's complain about the lifestyle of a petite. I just don't see it that way.
I love being petite, so I will have to work a little harder, know myself a little better, cheat the camera angle to get length some times, but I would not want to be an inch taller. That doesn't mean I am going to B*tch about it, it means to celebrate the goods that you've got! :) Shortie, shrimp, peanut, bring it, I'm lovin' it!
This is what is quoted inside my book Short Stuff: on the job with an x-small model:
Whenever I shoot I inhale, stretch my torso and arch my back to get a few more inches. I lift my chin slightly; I stretch my legs and keep some space between my body and my arms to create length. I point my toes, watch my posture and stay aware of my proportions – I put it all to use to prove that I am just as good as any of those tall lanky giraffe models.~ from "Short Stuff: on the job with an x-small model" in Barnes and Noble and Amazon.com, also I am holding a contest right now to win a copy here.
