Safety Role Models

The film covers the basic safety measures models should follow

Inverness model Phoebe Lynch is showing others how to be safe while pursuing a career in front of the camera.

 

The 25-year-old wants to guide young people, who are starting out in the modelling industry, and their parents away from scams and other possible issues.

 

'My Fix is about taking the first steps in the right direction,' explains Phoebe.

 

'I started modelling around two years ago, and I've had good and bad experiences.

 

'I spoke to local photographers and other models and realized that if we could get a message out highlighting model safety, it would make a difference.'

 

With Fixers, Phoebe has helped create a film which informs others of potential pitfalls when working as a model.

 

'I think there should be guidelines to help people go in the right direction.

 

'There are lots of young people looking to begin modelling but most know very little about it.'

 

You can watch her Fixers film 'Model Safety' at the top of this page.

 

The film highlights things like keeping yourself healthy, being able to deal well with rejection, making sure others know your whereabouts when you attend a photo shoot, and setting limits with the photographer as to what you are comfortable doing.

 

Phoebe would like the film to be shown to young aspiring models between 12 and 30 – an age range she feels would benefit from this information.

 

'We wanted to give a direct message,’ she explains.

 

'Be smart and stay safe, know your limits, dream big and work hard.

 

'Just be assertive and don't give up.'
