Shubnum Khan is a South African journalist, artist & author who is working on her second novel has become a familiar face on adverts for practically anything around the world.
From dating sites, teach kids, teeth whitening and a myriad of other strange stuff, Khan’s experience is a lesson for all of you who head off to those ‘free’ professional photoshoots.
“I can easily see how we were all used,” she said. “I feel quite stupid and I don’t want other people making the same mistakes.
“Don’t sign up for free photo shoots, read what you sign and also don’t believe most of the things you read on the internet,” she tweeted.
“Just read the small print, obviously. Be aware,” Shubnum warns. “Don’t get caught up by the camera. Think about what you’re doing and who is benefitting – know what you’re getting into.”
She adds: “You think it’s a small thing but you sign away your face. Basically, I gave away my face for free.”
