    This is your father saying that he respects you and that he feels that you should be known for what's on the inside instead of the outside.

    He doesn't like the idea of you being rewarded for the way you look, he would rather you gain respect from the people that matter instead of just being another model in another magazine. I work in publishing and media so often am confronted by parents who are concerned about the welfare of children.

    Can you really blame him after what he has probably seen and heard of the media? it does seem seedy and trashy, and 80% of it is (as unfortunate as it is)

    Explain to your father that if you did modelling then it would be completely tasteful and that you have a passion for the artistic side of it. Communication is key! and I assure you that if you speak to him openly about it you will reach a compromise. Invite him to the shoot! he will love seeing his beautiful daughter having the time of her life in a studio. It will put him at ease and will really make you seem respectful and mature.

    Always appreciate having that guidance, it doesn't last forever, trust me!

    Good luck

    Modeling is filled with con artists preying on the less than modest. The astounding output of money by lots of people that call themselves "models" is a show of poor judgment. If you are model material, go to a few places and put yourself out there, and they will find you. If they ask you for money, they are con artists. If that is the only people who are interested in you, you are not model material. That doesn't mean you are unattractive. Work on something else simultaneously - and if you want to be a model, work hard at it. Modeling is not about pretty faces. Modeling is an art form - knowing angles and lighting and top designers and materials that the clothes are made out of. Most models, at some point, are asked to pose semi-nude - artistically, rather than pornographically. If that is not within your set of morals, than you will have to really think about this as a career. There are plenty that will do as asked, and understand that it is about art and fashion.

    If your father forbids it, and this is truly your passion, then you have some decisions to make. Modeling, like lots of art forms, is something that you do because you have no choice. It is not something that people do because they can't concentrate on passing the MCAT.

Abuse on all stages (phsyical, verbal, psychological, emotional) reduces the guy's journey of self properly worth.

    Your Dad loves you and wants to save your from making a big mistake. Modeling is in truth an unwholesome profession filled with drugs and other nasty stuff. The world needs more doctors, not more "models". You should discipline yourself and keep after your original goal and not be seduced by a so called life of glamor, which is just a thin covering for narcissism and degeneration. Good luck to you! We are rooting for you!

    You'll have to ask HIM why he's giving you such an ultimatum. He sounds like a control freak.
