EXTREME Modelling Management (EMM) held its monthly workshop in Port Shepstone over the weekend.

Adele and Herman Botes, EMM owners, said they assist models of all ages and shapes.

The agency offers modelling courses for those from the age of five up to 70.

“We teach our models different types of things - ramp work, what to do when entering pageants, interview skills, etiquette, photography, hair and make-up and choreography,” said Herman.

EMM has been running for 11 years and has branches all over the South Coast. The modelling agency has weekly and monthly meetings at the various branches, however, in Port Shepstone, they only meet on the first Saturday of the month.

“Many people think that to be a model you have to be skinny, and starve yourself. We promote that our girls are healthy and as long as they are comfortable in their body this is all that matters,” said Herman.

The agency is preparing some of the models for South African Juniors pageant.

“We are currently training the girls for the juniors, helping them build confidence and hone their interview techniques,” he said.

Herman invites models, modelling agencies and modelling studios to join them.

“Other agencies are welcome to join the workshops. We are also looking for boys and men to join.

The next meeting will be at The New Convent Church in Protea Park on 9 April.
