EDITOR’S NOTE BY PETE VALENTINO

This month we are fortunate to feature one of the most successful Scandinavian glamour models today. Miss Joan Divine! We love European women but when it comes to blonde Scandinavians, here at Glam Jam, we definitely have a soft spot for these beautiful lean women. Also this month I wanted to explain a common problem in the industry that has been going on for years now. The model’s expectations and diva syndrome. This is not a laughing matter, as the syndrome is alive and well within the industry. There has been so much misinformation given to new models of today that their understanding of how things were done professionally back in the golden era of glamour (80’s and 90’s) is non existent. The article will break it down in the simplest form for everyone to understand the nature of the syndrome. As always, Glam Jam is primarily a submission driven magazine to showcase the hottest new glamour photographers and models all over the world! This is your platform to finally get that valuable exposure to bring you to the next level in your craft, as a model or photographer! Get the visibility you deserve! Politics-free and above all with the focus solely on beautiful women and great photography. The way it should always be!

Glam Jam Magazine is here for you guys! Share the beauty!

COVER GIRL THE MODELING EXPERIENCE I was born in a little town in Jutland in Denmark. I’m self employed and doing as much modeling as possible. I’m all about living the life to the fullest and getting as much out of it as possible. I have been told many times that I’m an easy going girl with a passion for Glamour and I love my two small Chihuahua`s! They are with my as often as possible. For me, doing photo shoots is a form of therapy and break from the daily hectic and stressful life. I started as a very young teenage girl in the modeling business. I always had a passion for being in front of the camera, and I very quickly ended up in several Danish magazines. What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. I just don’t want to become one of those women at age 80 and think...What if…

MAINTAINING A SEXY BODY In my case, such as many Scandinavian women, I think it comes down to having good genes. My mom is also very slim, so I guess I’m just a lucky girl! Now don’t get me wrong, I workout on occasion also, but not as much as I want to, due to a lot of travel all over the world doing photo shoots. My new year resolution was to maintain the shape I have right now. In this industry your body and sex appeal are mainly what get you contracts and exposure. If you fail to take care of yourself regularly, don’t expect people to come knocking on your door! You need to do some work too! I’m very pleased of my look at the moment.

CURRENT GOALS Well I love glamour, and I’m always in the hunt for gigs and covers. I’m also planning a new trip to USA where I have planned several shoots, and who knows.. Maybe I get a new magazine shoot, or a Makeup artist job, and it always good to expand the network in the business. You see, not only do I model but I am a makeup artist, stylist and photographer! The best way to understand how to be a solid glamour model sometimes is to be behind the scenes and see how things work! In the end, I love visiting the U.S., so its a win/win situation! As far as photography goes, I started as a glamour photographer myself. I am currently shooting a lot of models for a Danish magazine . It is very easy for me to start as a photographer when I have been in business for so long, both as a makeup artist and model. And I think I’ve come quite far already as I have been shooting for only a year! 8

JESSICA

JESSICA, HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH GLAMOUR MODELING? I actually started out modelling not knowing where I wanted to go, I started to google search some photographers and stumbled across Nick Art & Photography’s website and saw his glamour shots and just knew that was exactly where I wanted to take my modelling to. I booked a shoot in and have never looked back. WHO INSPIRED YOU IN BECOMING A GLAMOUR MODEL? I have always looked up and aimed for the obvious Miranda Kerr. A local Aussie girl, Imogen Lovell, who has already been featured in Glam Jam Magazine, has actually inspired me to take on the glamour modelling. I saw photos of her and she is such an admirable model and I am so ambitious to take this career further and further thanks to her beautiful portfolio. HOW DO YOU MANAGE TO MAINTAIN SUCH AN INCREDIBLY SEXY BODY? I am an extremist when it comes to eating healthy and exercise. I am a always exercising and obsessed with squats! You need to be if you want to have a nice butt! I eat as organic as I can and I drink about 2-4L of water a day. WHAT PART OF THAT SEXY BODY ARE YOU THE MOST PROUD OF? Probably my boobs, they are natural and large and they have done me proud! WHAT IS THE MOST ADVENTUROUS THING YOU HAVE DONE? It was most likely when I hopped on a plane to head over to Fiji to spend my 21st there. Beautiful country! WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE GOALS WITHIN THE GLAMOUR INDUSTRY? I am very determined to be a cover girl and do a few spreads for a few different magazines i LOVE and get my name more out there. I also aim to work with a lot more photographers, designers and different companies. My options are endless at the moment, I am just loving everything that comes my way!

ALYSON MARIE

ALYSON MARIE, HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH GLAMOUR MODELING? I got involved when I was asked to do a test shoot with a glamour photographer in Dallas. It was so much fun and I loved the way the shots turned out. After that I started seeking out more work. WHO INSPIRED YOU IN BECOMING A GLAMOUR MODEL? Adriana Lima. How she captures every viewer with her fierce looks was always something I was inspired by. HOW DO YOU MANAGE TO MAINTAIN SUCH AN INCREDIBLY SEXY BODY? I make sure to work out at the gym regularly, eat right, and stay active. WHAT PART OF THAT SEXY BODY ARE YOU THE MOST PROUD OF? I am the most proud of my long legs. When I throw on a pair of heels, they look longer and leaner. Love it! TELL US ONE UNUSUAL OR UNIQUE THING ABOUT YOURSELF THAT OTHERS MAY NOT KNOW. I am an artist. I love painting and drawing. WHAT IS THE MOST ADVENTUROUS THING YOU HAVE DONE? I have gone sky diving! It was so scary and yet so unbelievably thrilling! WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE GOALS WITHIN THE GLAMOUR INDUSTRY? I want to make it as a photographer in the future. Having my shots published in magazines would be so fulfilling. FOR THOSE INTERESTED, WHERE CAN WE FIND OUT MORE ABOUT YOU? You can find me on Facebook on my fan page or follow me on Instagram and Twitter, @AlysonMarieX0

MODEL

PSYCHOLOGY

BY PETE VALENTINO

EXPECTATIONS AND THE DIVA SYNDROME ONE THING THAT AFFECTS MANY MODELS IS THE VERY HIGH EXPECTATION LEVELS THEY SET FOR THEMSELVES. IN TURN, MANY LOOSE SENSE OF REALITY OF WHAT IS REALLY ATTAINABLE WITH THEIR CURRENT SKILL SET AND BUDGET.

PAYING FOR SERVICES

Young glamour models of today have been unfortunately conditioned to make strong demands and behave as everything is owed to them. This is clearly not the behavior or mentality to have when starting out. Everyone starts somewhere and if you want to bypass certain levels, working with professionals is a sure way to get where you want to be faster. You would obviously pay your dentist to remove junk off your teeth, or your hairdresser to cut your hair, so like many other service, working with an experienced and qualified cast of professionals will most likely supply you with images that showcase you in the best possible light. You really don’t want to be spending months and years of time doing mediocre photo shoots when others are ahead of you in respect to promoting themselves which is the next topic.

HOW DO I MAKE MONEY AS A GLAMOUR MODEL?

Back in the 1980’s and 90’s, Glamour modeling was a very lucrative industry and most top Glamour models would be making very nice salaries for their work. Unfortunately today it is not the case and where a model makes profits is not with publications but with the extra promotion of their brand and merchandise she can offer to fans. One example I really love to use is Los Angeles based model, Jessica Vaugn (www.jessicavaugn. com) Jessica has an excellent business model. Offering a variety of exclusive items and merchandise to her fans. Models of today who think magazines and even national publications will pay them what they did 20 years ago, or if they are paid at all, need to wake up and get with the current program. Those days are long gone. You need to use publications to build your brand and fan base, which is essentially the goal here! Everything will fall in place once you mastered and achieved this aspect! Above all, leave your ego at the door!

THE STUBBORN DIVA SYNDROME

such syndrome, because quite frankly in this industry there is misinformation everywhere. The most successful glamour models of our time were all women with great bubbly personalities but who knew how to keep both feet on the ground at all times. They rarely had cases of self entitlement and they were very smart businesswomen. You will not be successful for long if you, as we say in laymens terms, think your poop doesn’t stink! The syndrome exists simply because models of today have been spoiled and do not look back at the golden era of glamour modeling (80’s and 90’s) and how things were done and how the big names of the industry invested in themselves.

YOUR EXPECTATIONS

You will have to be very realistic on where your skills and talent can take you. Through misinformation, many models are lead to believe that they can accomplish anything when in fact their talent is restricted to do so. Know what your limitations are and how far you will go to achieve your goals. If confidence, looks and talent are on your side, Invest in yourself if you believe in yourself!

UNDERSTANDING THE BUSINESS

The nature of the glamour industry is extremely competitive and anyone can be replaced at any given time. Beautiful women are everywhere and as a model you need to remind yourself that the minute you sense the diva syndrome starting to kick in. Avoiding making enemies is one way to keep a good working relationship with other models and talent. Although you wish to be flamboyant, keep those behaviors under the rug as they will do more harm than good for a career in this industry. Again, everyone can be replaced.

CONTROLLING YOUR OWN DESTINY

The beauty of being a Glamour model is that for the most part you control your destiny. No one should prevent you from at the very least attempt to achieve your goal as a glamour model. Having a supportive cast always brings more motivation and better performances in front of a lens. Just remember that egocentrism does not make a modeling career, it usually kills it!

Yes, this is a common syndrome also referred to as the self entitlement syndrome. You see, misinformation may have lead to GLAM JAM FEBRUARY 2013

Next thing I know, he was telling me to go straight home to get ready to shoot with him. WHO INSPIRED YOU IN BECOMING A GLAMOUR MODEL?
