CQ models flock to model agency
CHELSEA Jenkins travelled four hours to fine tune her modelling skills this week.
The Dysart resident, who will become a boarding student at Rockhampton Grammar School this year, arrived in the beef capital early to start work on a future modelling career.
She’s only 14 and thinks the modelling industry would be “cool” to be part of.
More than 30 girls travelled from across Central Queensland to work with Sunshine Coast-based model scout Serena Keenan this week.
She held three workshops on deportment and grooming, modelling and junior modelling.
Ms Keenan, who owns Serena’s Image, has been travelling to Rockhampton for the past few months and has since signed several local models to her agency.
“I just can’t believe the response we get here,” she said.
“One student travelled five hours from up north to do it.”
Karaline Anstey, of Gracemere, was one of the model to this week graduate from the course. She said she enjoyed modelling because it boosted her confidence.
Ms Keenan teaches all aspects of modelling including confidence, skin care, makeup skills, model poses and public speaking.
Yesterday Ms Keenan chose 25 local girls to take part in a fashion shoot to provide them with quality portfolios to work with in the industry.
