After watching this video on Youtube, I can understand that working so hard to get to where you want to be in life takes some sacrifice and commitment. The video talks about how Instagram models vs Runway Models and how different they are. As a photographer, I think that Instagram models have dominated their space for social media influential reasons to gain exposure and/or profit from brands. How they can get over 100K followers on their Instagram account should be the topic of discussion, but we’ll save that for another blog. Runway models, on the other hand, travel abroad, participate in runway shows, try on sample outfits for the fashion shows and shoot for commercial opportunities. I think the Runway models work the hardest to get to where they’re at. I think at the end of the day, it comes down to building your brand the best way you can.
Maybe this Youtube channel will create a “Middle Ground” episode on Photographers vs. Camera Phone users. I’d like to see how that conversation pans out. What do you think? Do you think Instagram models have different intensions than Runway models for branding purposes? Comment below.
