Interview With PLUS Model Magazine Cover Model… Mia Amber, 6/01/2009
PLUS Model Magazine Cover Model… Mia Amber
by Suzette Banzo

They say that the true judge of having mastered anything is the ability to turn around and teach it to someone else. Mia Amber is most definitely someone who not only knows how to dress herself for success, but also helps aspiring models learn how to best present themselves.  Mia, a model, actor and now style consultant mixes experience, talent and a great eye for what works to help other women understand their beauty as they take their place in the business.

Suzette: Mia, I have noticed many models using your services as a stylist these days.  How did you get involved in styling for shoots?

Mia Amber: Well, I don't consider myself a stylist...more of a consultant I guess.  I saw a lot of aspiring models spending money on photo shoots in an effort to submit photos to agencies and 99% of the time, the aspiring models were dressed inappropriately for the photos.

Suzette:  What is an example of inappropriate attire for a portfolio photo?

Mia Amber: I always let the ladies know that they do NOT need professional photos to submit to an agency but if they have made the decision to pay for a shoot then they need to learn to look like a model and I take them shopping to help them learn to put together looks.  Examples of inappropriate: Club hopping clothes, lycra, extremely low cut tops, poorly fit clothing, logos, etc. Hair styled as if they are in a hair show and wearing stage makeup.  Showing too much skin, and using props is another "Don't".  My hope is that at the end of our shopping day they have learned what looks good on their body type, what clothing will look great in a photo, and what is industry standard.

Suzette:  What can a model expect from working with you if she is shooting for the first time?

Mia Amber: My services include a consultation where we sit down together and decide what types of looks are missing from her portfolio or what type of clients she may attract; if she has a body for lingerie/swimwear, etc. and we go from there.
