Modeling can be a lucrative and entertaining lifestyle that most of the world will only see but not experience. You have now decided to give modeling a try and can’t wait to get started. But aside from all this new excitement, the question of where should I start, stills lingers. Say you have a friend who wants to try their hand at modeling, what advice should you give them to help them get on their way? Getting started is often the hardest part. With that said, here are two important steps that each model will likely start with.
After deciding that you want to be a model, you need to start somewhere. One of the very first steps a brand spankin model will do is……. hire a photographer and attend your first photo-shoot. This is important early on because at this point you have no photos and one thing that all agencies, clients, and photographers will want to see, are photos. So it is in your best interest to find a good photographer and set up a shoot date. While you are at it, contact another photographer and set up a shoot date with them as well. You will want a few different styles and types of photos. This will make your life much easier when it comes to impressing agencies, clients, and photographers.
Another important step is getting an agency. Once a model has some good photographs, the next step is to land an agency. This is important because agencies are the outfits that find models work. They are the ones that call you with castings, test shoots, and bookings. Without them, you will have to find work on your own; which unless you have remarkable connections and know how to network yourself like no one’s business, will be very difficult.
These two steps are critical when it comes to getting started. If a new model can do these two steps right, they will have a much easier time later in their journey. This may save them from rejection and disappointment from clients and agencies later on who have high expectations. When it comes to getting started models should focus their attention on first, getting a variety of great photos and secondly, using those photos to find a reputable modeling agency.
