CoverMirandaMiranda Gilly of Hillsboro, Oregon is what one might describe as a big presence in a small package. Standing just 5 foot, 2 inches and weighing in at 106 pounds, she casts a giant shadow of determination, persistence, and beauty in the fields of glamour and fashion photography. Don’t let Miranda’s stature fool you; she’s a dynamo in front of the lens. From the moment she struck her first pose, I knew I was in for a delightful day of photography. Miranda’s experiences over the seven years she’s been modeling include runway, catalog, and high-end fashion. She knows what she wants and puts everything she has into making a shoot successful. I’ve been blessed to work with her on two different occasions so far, and in both cases she came prepared with creative ideas and the posing skills of a true professional. Join me in discovering the joy of this beautiful and talented model in the following narrative from Miranda’s own words.

Dean Fast


I began my modeling when I was scouted in a shopping mall and was asked to walk a model walk. I was told that I was very beautiful and should model. Nobody mentored me, but I always looked up to Kate Moss as a role model.


18A huge change that has occurred from when I started to where I am as a model today includes confidence. My lack of confidence as a woman just got so much better after I started modeling; after all I’m doing something I love which has become a stepping-stone in my life. As time progresses in my modeling career, the more beautiful I feel.


I think social media has been an outlet for me, meaning it has let me express and showcase my talent to photographers and industry leaders, giving them the ability to see what I am all about and how hard I work. Social media is like a mini fan base for me and I am very thankful for it.


The best websites for really marketing yourself, as a model would be any social media site that you feel will reach the most people. I’m very active on both Instagram and Facebook. It’s less about the site and more about how you market yourself as a person and as a model. I believe that that is what helps you get noticed and known. The sites I do not recommend are ones that are not fully researched by the model, as some can be dangerous if not scoped out firsthand.


Glamour to me is the ability to pose in a way that highlights a woman’s most precious and beautiful features without showing it all if you know what I mean. I see myself fitting into this genre of modeling quite nicely and effectively. I model with the sense of knowing my boundaries and limitations. I always take into consideration what my audience is going to see and not see.


As far as inspirations go, I am inspired by all kinds of styles. I love Vogue, Juicy Couture, Victoria Secret, and Vogue Italia. My idol has to be Kate Moss; she is so beautiful and displays so many talents. The fact that she has landed so many spreads in magazines all over the globe speaks to this. She is definitely the lady I try to emulate the most.


10Future modeling goals include the hope that someday I’d land the cover in Vogue Italia. That has been my dream for a long time. Another goal is to get to the point where I get paid for every shoot I do.


My family has actually never supported my modeling career; my fiancé has been the only support that has really has helped me build the confidence I’ve needed to stay with it and move forward.


My advice to models that are just starting would be to always stay true to yourself no matter what. Do not let society destroy your hopes and dreams are key to succeeding in this industry. Mistakes that I look back on today include shooting with photographers with bad intentions. I believe a model should always do his or her research, knowing that not everyone you meet on the Internet is who they say they are once you meet up for a shoot.


22Preparations I take for a shoot include not consuming food or liquids the day of, because I feel it causes bloating and shows on camera. I also like to get all the jitters out by dancing to my favorite song while doing my makeup. Knowing that many hours of work go into making a shoot successful, I feel preparation is the key. Last but not least, I always pack more then I need for a shoot; you never want to come up short with wardrobe or accessories when you’re in the middle of a session. If I am doing a shoot that has a concept that I do not have much experience with, I will do my pre-shoot research on poses, ideas, and mood. My inspiration comes from magazines and editorials I research on the Internet. I use these for basic motivation and then I just take mental notes of everything to prepare for the shoot in advance.


When I view different photographer’s portfolios, I tend to look for what kind of style they portray and what kind of portfolio they have. I do this because it is important to me that if I shoot with a photographer, their work is going to reflect nicely on my own portfolio. I have been modeling long enough to know that I need to do my research on photographers I work with before shooting. I try to look for something that we both need in our portfolios before asking to shoot with them; that way, I’m hoping we’ll both get something we need.


One aspect of glamour photography includes nudity. My thoughts on posing nude or with implied nudity are rather neutral. I, myself, would never model full nude or partially nude unless I was being paid a lot of money for it. Nudity in my modeling career is not something I want everyone to see; it is not fashionable in my eyes. A body is beautiful in every way and should be kept only to the eyes of some but not all. Partial nudity is fine in fashion if it’s respectable to the woman’s body. Some details should be kept private as I don’t think it’s very classy or respectful when too much is shown. I want to set an example for my generation. I always ask myself, how do I want society to define me when it comes to being a model and I do this before the first image is ever taken.
