I dropped in to see how the Miss Universe Australia 2012 heats are going.

I had the opportunity today to drop in on one of our local Miss Universe Australia 2012 heats when I met up with my studio collegue who was there as a judge. Seeing how the contestants, many of whom are aspiring or working models, handled this nerve racking event was interesting. Knowing a little of what each girl needs to put into this event makes me appreciate the effort as well as the stress they go thru in their quest to represent Australia internationaly.

When the girls that had made it through today's heat were anounced, I wondered how the judges decided who to pass on to the next round, a very difficult task with such a great array of beautiful  young women.

Then of course I wonder how the girls plan the rest of their career in this competitive word of modelling. I know that the building of a great modelling portfolio is parramount, but how many girls realise that the experience gained while shooting with an experienced working photographer is really what makes the difference between a collection of pretty pictures and a book that works for the model when she or he again is competing with her/his counterparts.
