Rule 5 Saturday - Shannon Lawson From Down Under

This week's Rule 5 lovely is Shannon Lawson. From 2014: Getting to know Shannon Lawson
I am 23 and still living at home in Bondi. I’m a huge tea and tequila enthusiast with a passion for travelling. I find being six-foot tall both a blessing and a curse when it comes to modelling/life. I’ve recently completed my Bachelor of Media Production at UNSW and come from a performing arts background after studying at The McDonald College.

You quickly learn that your individual look won’t suit every job type. This means you have to be ok with constant rejection. Once you realise your flaws you can easily disguise them in front of the camera or in person. For example angling your body a certain way to hide big hips and so on.

Modelling also usually means a lot of waiting. You find models falling asleep in makeup chairs, sitting around before shows, waiting for the camera crew to set up shots/test lighting. Most models have had an experience fainting on the job. Jobs are sporadic and your income isn’t usually steady.

Aside from modelling, you can find me working odd jobs, spending my weekends at home, walking my dog, online shopping and working in retail. I have dream to be a TV/travel presenter or maybe running my own blog one day. I really want to work in TV and fashion and use what I’ve learnt in front of the camera and take it behind the scenes. I hope to live overseas during my 20s and visit places off the beaten track.
