There exists a misconception that success on the competition stage will directly equal success as a modeling talent and publishing potential.


The reality is that in the years I’ve been shooting in the health and fitness industry, I’ve never once been assigned a magazine or commercial project with someone based upon what they did on stage.


Thus the two need to be treated as individual ventures, because that is precisely what they are.


Success on stage is a wonderful thing – but it does not directly correlate to opportunities off stage.
