The Truth About Being A Model With Cailin Hill Araki

Founder, MODELBURNBOOK, Tokyo

“I started the MODELBURNBOOK blog because, at the time, models still weren’t allowed to have voices. We were just faces and bodies. I was already documenting my modelling experiences privately because I wanted to write a book or a TV show…but I ended up becoming a photographer and opening my own production company with my partner in Tokyo!”

“I’d say the biggest misconception about modelling is that it pays well, or even pays at all.”

“The best thing about modelling is being able to travel alone as a young woman and also feel a level of independence that most young girls don’t get to experience. The worst part is that there’s rarely a smooth transition out of modelling. It’s something that’s rarely documented, and something that’s become a new passion project for me. I want to normalize the ‘model retirement club.’”
