10. Models and Artists: Terms of Address

To safeguard their privacy, models are often addressed by first
name only.  Models can follow the same system in addressing artists
and group leaders (e.g. instructors).  To increase recognition,
interest, and respect, models can introduce themselves by full name
at some point in the session, and offer a little background
information on themselves.  This points out to other people that they
respect themselves as members of their profession.  It is good to
overcome tendencies to hide personal identity, since fear of
discovery will inhibit self-expression, and actual discovery of a
hidden identity may cause embarrassment.
