Unlike what we see in movies and commercials, becoming a model requires more than being handsome, beautiful and tall. It is more about being smart, unique and passionate about modeling to back up those physical perceptions.
You have to know the type of modeling you want to associate yourself with. You can decide to be a print model that focuses on magazine photos, a runaway model that catwalks for labels, press model or a commercial model. Always be prepared to model. Even if it means going to classes, you need to build confidence and comfort with every aspect of modeling, which is only possible if you are well prepared.
Always be yourself if you want to be a successful model. Resist the temptation to put on a fake impression during an interview with a modeling agency. Most agencies prefer to see prospective models in the natural self so that they know what they are choosing. However, don’t ignore body conscious outfits such as skinny pants and tanks because most agencies focus more on the body. You can also take some casual shots as well and use them as your portfolio. Always smile to the camera, and ensure your outfit does not disrupt your body profile.
Above all, look for the right agency that specializes in the modeling field you like. Do research beforehand to see the modeling agencies that are reputable in the market. Search online and get to know which label or company the agency represents. Be careful as there are a lot of scammers out there. An agency that is quick to ask you for money should make you suspicious.
