Scarlet Rose Voice Works
What was the journey to becoming Canterlot’s most loved and adored red horse model like? The ups and downs?
“Being a model isn’t always glitz and glam hon.”
“There are times I feel photographers treat me more like their art project than an actual pony. So, to begin with? After working as a guest model for fashion designer friends I knew, I quickly began getting calls for other modeling jobs based on their recommendations. Now, to be fair a lot of my earlier jobs where small-time with little pay. Namely, I ended up helping photographers make albums of “Stock Photography” that they can sell wherever and make profits on my image. They’d ask me to do all sorts of things from the mundane like sitting at a desk busy at work that I’m clearly not doing… to some more extreme things like keeping my balance for an action pose or like this one time they asked me to purposefully trip forward while they used this high-speed shutter camera to catch my images in mid-fall… Had to do twelve takes until they got the one they wanted… But now most of that is behind me. I’ve made some valuable contacts back in those days and as word spread of my willingness to get the best picture possible… and a few fabulous couple of head-shots where passed around studio big-wigs… Suddenly I got calls for runway shows, fashion catalogs, magazine and billboard ads. I even scored front cover appearances on some prominent fashion and culture magazines … not to mention a few centerfolds I might add… and it’s just been absolutely wonderful. None of it would’ve happened though if I didn’t put myself out there in the first place and made connections with ponies in the industry early on. I thank them each and every day.”
