miami swim week 2017
It is a hilarious, chaotic, anxiety provoking process, but we all show up to do it.
I went on Swim Week castings for the first time last year and was humbled by the fact that I did not book anything. Not a single show. About 4 or 5 brands were interested in me enough to take my photo (out of about 10 or so castings) and I did not hear back from anyone. As you can image, I was disappointed, but like anything else in this industry, you can’t take it personally.
So this time around I went to the castings with a different mindset and no expectations. I ended up taking photos for again for about 4 or 5 different brands (which is an achievement in of itself) but this year I actually got called back for one of the shows and it was for an AWESOME brand…but before we get into that, I’ll take you through my week.

I find myself learning new things about business and the industry every year. Nothing beats hands-on, experience-based learning.
