Yes, you can model over 40
... And do everything else!

This is it! I'm going to share the journey!
Hi, my name is Venus Apovo.  When I was a child, I wanted to be a photographer and a writer.

10 years ago, I moved from Paris to London, looking for a fresh start.

Now, I am 48 years old, mum of two daughters and a professional model in London.  Not quite what I had planned, yet nothing in life went the way I planned it.

Here, on this blog, I want to share my journey. I will show that getting to my age with the grey hair, sagging boobs and cellulite did not stop me from doing what I like, modelling.
I will walk you through my experience of the model life.  Take you from the first photoshoot to my first time on a set.  I will provide you with a toolbox of information that is going to make things happen. I want to show you that whatever your age, anything is possible.  I have the chance to have a great mentor, so I want to share this knowledge with you. 
Although my childhood dreams of being a photographer or writer did not come true, I'm not far from it.  Always have a plan B!

Welcome to my crazy, unstructured and happy mature model life.

Hi!  So Glad You're Here.
Welcome to YesYouCanModelOver40...and do everything else!
This blog is the story of my journey of becoming a model... in London... with all the challenges while approaching the golden age of 50.  It all started with me being extremely shy, to the present, with me making a living posing for a camera.  I now know and can confidently say, everything is possible when you believe and listen to yourself.
