Shameer: Secrets of a Modeling Scout
At only 20 years old Shameer Khan is photographing and placing models at all of the leading agencies in NYC including IMG, Elite, Ford and more! He specializes in working with new models to add photos to their portfolios. Shameer even shot America’s Next Top Model Cycle 14 winner Krista White for Wilhelmina!
Shameer hunts the streets of New York looking for new faces. When he finds someone with model potential, he develops them and then presents them to agencies. So what does Shameer look for in a model? Here are his top musts to be a top model!
When I come across a new face they:
• Must have good bone structure in their face, so that light looks good when it hits them at various angles.
• Must have personality- be charming and be likable!
• Must move well in front of a camera and be able to take direction!
• Must be open to trying new things that are outside of their comfort zone.
• Must have personal style! They don’t have to wear labels from top designers, but they have to know how to put an outfit together!
