Have you ever thought about a career in modeling but did not know where to begin? Modeling is a demanding field with a lot of competition and you need every advantage!
To get a leg up in your modeling career, you need to have some photos taken by a great photographer. Be sure they are professional = and not just a friend with a camera. You should also consider setting up a website. It should also be of professional quality to display your portfolio online. Gather as many emails of designers in the area you want to work and start promoting yourself.
Your size, shape and characteristics will determine where in modeling you will fit. High fashion models must be tall and slim and are usually beautiful and young. But that does not mean if you are only five foot three that there is no work for you with modelling agency. Find your strengths and promote those. Network with other models especially ones who are doing what you want to do. Another model with experience can give you the best advice available.
Your portfolio needs to be professional and consist of a variety of photos. You may want to use different photographers available with modelling agency to get different looks as well. They should show more than one pose and a variety of outfits and makeup looks. You want some ’fashion’ shots, arty shots, glamour short, etc. You need to have close-ups and full length shots.
Always remember to show up on time and always act in a courteous and professional manner. Consider every audition and shoot as a job interview. You want to be friendly and hopefully you will get the job with modelling agency.
