In an industry that can beat you up and break you down, a little bit of advice and wisdom is always appreciated. Luckily for you, this is part of what we do, provide modeling tips and techniques to help you throughout your modeling journey. This list happens to be geared toward women, young and old. With that said, here are The Top 5 Modeling Tips for young and older women, provided by professional model Susan Lackner.
Tip 1…I would not waste my or my parents money on a modeling school. They can be good for basic education, but I’ve found that you either have what it takes or you don’t. Once you find a modeling agency that is willing to work with you, they will help guide you towards what you need to learn to become a model. They will find that special something in you that they believe will bring you work and in turn, bring them money. They won’t waste your time or theirs if they don’t believe that you will make it in the modeling world.
Tip 2…Don’t be intimidated by other beautiful models when you’re out doing casting calls. We are all beautiful in our own ways and your agency wouldn’t take a risk on you if there wasn’t something special about you.
Tip 3…Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate and eat well! Stay away from sugar and simple carbs. Your body is your paycheck when you’re modeling and you must take great care of it.
Tip 4…Find a great agent that will push you & keep getting you work. They will help you build a solid portfolio and teach you much of what you need to know in order to be successful.
Tip 5…Smile! Be yourself! This will get you jobs. Clients love models who are natural and comfortable. Always maintain a great attitude, an attitude that allows you to be happy, to believe in yourself, and never give up.
There you go, Have Fun! It’s one of the most rewarding jobs out there.
