Many women desire to become print fashion models but don’t know where to begin. Modeling is a competitive and demanding industry. To succeed as a model, a person must meet many high standards and be willing to work hard. To get you started, we’ve compiled a short list of tips for models just starting out.
- Find an agent. While some people are fortunate enough to be scouted by modeling agencies, you don’t need to wait for them to call you. Simply send your pictures to a reputable agency and you could have the chance of being endorsed.
- Be Yourself. Agencies are looking for unique faces to add to their model database. What they aren’t looking for are fashion experts and makeup artists; they’ve already got plenty of those. Make sure to present yourself nicely, but don’t go over the top.
- Play the role. A perfect face and body will only get you so far. Prepare yourself for the job, understand what it takes to pose for a picture, and practice this craft if you want to be the best. Models are trained not born.
- Work it out. Modeling is a job. You will be expected to act professionally, as you would in any other profession. Don’t get lost in the perks of the job, maintain a schedule and work to maintain professional relationships. A model’s best friend is their repeat customers. Let them know you are ready for business.
