“The secret to modeling is not being perfect. What one needs is a face that people can identify in a second. You have to be given what’s needed by nature, and what’s needed is to bring something new.”
I first met model ballerina Hayley Hite while teaching a photography workshop at the Temple to Music at Roger Williams Park in Providence, Rhode Island. We were shooting a gaggle of bellydancers and I noticed a mother taking pictures of a little ballerina girl next to the Temple. Experience has taught me to be open to what is seemingly serendipitous so I introduced myself and asked if Hayley would mind posing with the belly dancers for a couple of shots. She was reluctant and shy at first but quickly revealed a natural ability to be in front of the lens.
Her mother, Jen was exceedingly supportive and they are quite the pair!
Since then, Hayley has modeled for numerous workshops and recently performed at the Rosecliff mansion in Newport with the Island Moving Company’s “The Nutcracker”.
We are thrilled to have Hayley return to the Creating Your Vision workshop on Sunday, February 16, 2020 in Natick, MA.
