OutAroad.com Model of The Week
Shara Camille (born Shara Camille McGriff) was born August 19th, 1983. The daughter of a bi racial mother of Japanese and African American descent and to a father of full African American descent, Shara got the best of both having a close relationship with both sides of her background. Being born and raised in the diverse San Francisco Bay Area helped Shara feel even more at home with her background due to the vast amount of bi racial peers with the similar Black and Asian descents.
Shara got her start in modeling at the age of 19 while attending Junior College in San Bruno (by way of San Francisco). She received formal model etiquette training at Barbizon Acting and Modeling School in San Francisco. What started off as a simple side hobby became a full on job. In the beginning, her modeling career started with simple promotional modeling at local clubs and events. Shara now has grown a name for herself and is considered one of the hardest working models of her area. Presently, Shara has a respectable amount of experience under her belt including modeling for runway, print ads, promotions, spokes modeling, and of course, video modeling. Shara made her music video debut on local Bay Area Artist Bailey’s video “U C IT” featuring J. Valentine which aired frequently on MTVJams and California radio stations.
Shara also has seven years of advanced Dance training including experience with Jazz, Ballet, Afro Haitian, Hip Hop, and modern dance. In addition, Shara also is a make up artist. What Shara brings to the modeling industry gives a pleasantly different edge to what other models are doing currently. “I don’t want to do what I see other models doing,” the model says, “I would like to advance in this business knowing I’m putting my own twist to my own ideas.” Shara is currently in the works of getting signed by both talent and modeling agencies and hopes to soon be putting her foot in the door for acting. She is currently considering some roles for independent movies. “I know I’m not an Oscar winner yet, I have to work my way up with acting like everyone else.” We all look forward to seeing more from this little lady in the upcoming.
