Rahjon Lane has done it again! If you remember his story from the "Breaking Thresholds" blog post back in March when the site first released, you will remember how he spoke on the passion and dedication he has shown to perfecting his craft. Since then he has made some major strides in his modeling career traveling out of state shooting with other well known photographers as well as being recognized by fashion bloggers and social media pages. About a week ago while I was at work he called me elated beacuse he had been granted an interverview for one of the modeling agencies based in North Carolinia. Ive never been directly involved with the process of helping a model get into an agency so immediately I called every professional I knew. Needless to say after a few quick conversations and spending hours on the phone with Rahjon, we got his portfolio organized and sent off to be printed. The day of the interview i don't know who was more nervous him or me and it seemed like time passed slower than normal and finally he texted me...saying he is now the newest member of 3BBM (3 Black Bird Management) .
These are the moments that mean the most to me. Encountering people who are laser focused on seeing dreams turn into reality; doing whatever is needed to see it through. Its inspiring to me as an artist because it makes me realize more and more that we are in direct control of where our destinies end. Watching how passionately he speaks and seeing the energy that surrounds him not only on set but in his everyday life is alluring. He is literally getting better with time, unafraid of societies labels he isn't afraid to push the boundaries in his shoots wether it be themes, outfits etc. If he sees the potential in it he finds a way to make it work. To the people at 3BBM if you are fortunate enough to see this, you have casted a hidden gem with limitless potential. Rah I wish nothing but success to you and everything you put your name on shall be gold one day.
