2006 WNSO - FAME Vancouver Island
Fitness Model Search
As the name of the category implies, it's for those looking to pursue opportunities
in the field. Judges look for a combination of a physically
fit and photogenic athlete. Modeling experience helps but if you've got that look...some
are just naturals. Going on stage (and even winning) only gets a competitor so much publicity.
It's taking advantage of the opportunities that really get you out there. The
competitors here, each with their unique look, were truly eye-catching. Maci was the most
muscularly defined - that sometimes can work against you in 'modeling' but in her case, did
not detract from her poise and stage presence. Erin, although softer, has a proportionate
physique on a statuesque body - no small feat. I made sure to use flash to capture her
eyes hidden under that baseball cap :) - after all, this was a model search. Natalia is
the sister of Nadia Nardi, national level Canadian bodybuilder - yes, genetics helps!
Alison and Alisa went for the wavy blonde look, very nice. Karen has amazing symmetry
and looks which are perfect for swimwear. Hope to do some followups in the near
