When mentioning models, people will first think of fashion models that have close relations with T stage, catwalks and lighting. However, with the rapid development of online shopping, "Taobao toy model" has become a new job.
Wang Huaisu is a full-time toy model in a Taobao photography studio in Yangzhou, southeast China's Jiangsu Province. This 18-year-old girl has always dreamed to be a model since she was a child. She would always read books and watch videos to learn poses and steps. She chose to work after graduating from high school. Wang could not enter the full-time model circle since she has not received any professional training. She comes to work at this photography studio under a friend's introduction.
Her daily work is to shoot photos for a variety of toys in accordance with the requirements of customers and photographers. Her workload is heavy. For one toy, she has to make more than ten postures. Usually, she has to pose for hundreds of photos a day. In order to better satisfy customers, she learns pose styles from the Internet and professional model magazines in her spare time.
Wang wants to get faster progress in the future. She will attend professional model training classes in her spare time to make herself more professional. She hopes she will enter the model circle one day.
