Before you start dreaming to be a model, you need to think some of the modeling facts and to consider if modeling is the ideal vocation for you.
So you want to be a model? Do you have what it takes?
Modelling is a business
First, you need to know that modelling is a business, and as a model, you are your own business! Like any business, it takes time, effort, commitment, and patience to become a successful model. Remember that success does not happen over night.
It needs work and usually hard work so to make progress and start making some money modeling.
Find the perfect model agency for you
It is better to find a model agency to represent you to make a fast start and avoid the mistakes that every new model makes.
When agents look for new models to sign they look for a very specific set of physical criteria. How you look is definitely the first thing agents see. First and foremost models need to be tall and slim; for the most part they need to be slimmer than the average girl.
So, you need to try harder than the average person and make a good first impression.
If you dont’ meet the physical modelling criteria, then you don’t be dissapointed, you can still start your modelling carrer as a photomodel or in the softcore industry such as the playboy alike magazines and websites.
The best is to set your modelling goals on beforehand and then search for the best fit for you and not the opposite.
If you still cannot find a model agency that is near your philosophy, then it is good to keep searching and to go to modelling casting online or in their physical place.
Make your first portfolio
If you like posing and exposing yourself to the people, then you have the natural traits to become a professional model.
Otherwise, you need to work again with your portfolio, videos or other optical material to best present with confidence yourself.
