According to a woman who runs a facebook page, everyone who feels the need to call themselves a model, is in fact, a model. So this post is to help guide you into defining what kind of a model you are, so you too can call yourself a model. Please note it doesn’t matter if you have never been paid to model, if you like a photographer’s facebook page, or follow someone who holds a camera in their twitter display picture, you’re a model.

Love standing in front of your bathroom mirror taking photos of yourself in outfits from a particular store, then posting it on their wall? Awesome, you’re their spokeswomen and brand ambassador.
Love wearing next no clothes when you go out? Ooh that’s sexy, you must be a men’s magazine bikini model, lingerie model and promo girl. Oh sorry, scrap promo girl, that’s beneath you.
