About Annette Dominguez-O'Hair
The Model Consultant
When people think of modeling, they usually envision the traditional tall teen or 20-something fashion model. Well, there is also a lucrative and extensive market out there for commercial print models of all ages, especially models in their 30’s and 40’s! I started working as a commercial print model at age 34. Yes, that’s not a typo.
I am a Mother of three and I truly care about others and don’t like to see anyone being taken advantage of. There are people out there who prey on aspiring models, taking advantage of their naiveté and inexperience. That upsets my sense of justice! My objective is to steer clients in the right direction and provide practical information and guidance based on my many years of personal experience…

It certainly would be great if we could get copies (tear sheets) of all of our work to add. Sounds easy, right? Unfortunately, it’s not. My portfolio, or any model's portfolio for that matter, only reflects about 25% of their actual work. When I started, I would...read more
There are so many agencies that you can get overwhelmed very fast. They all have their own culture and specific focus. It is very important to know what kind of agency you are best suited for based on your lifestyle and your career objective. If you sign with an...read more
Yes! I have many working models that I have helped guide over the years. Some models can find themselves signed with agencies that are not a good fit or all of a sudden, not signed with anyone. Perhaps they are working but not booking enough or maybe their pictures...read more
Yes, yes, and yes! But only if you meet the criteria as described on the "what is commercial print" page. I did it at the age of 34. Looking back, it does seem unusual to start a modeling career at such a late age but at the time it was a natural progression having...read more
I personally love the lifestyle. I am a full time mother of three and commercial print has provided me with an exciting part time job for many years. I am never bored and have the privilege of meeting and working with a diverse group of...read more
