Just because you live in a small town or away from the big cities, doesnt mean that you dont have the opportunity to get into modeling. All it takes is a little more creativity and a little more thought behind your strategies, but you can trust that many successful models have been in your shoes.
Male models come in all shapes and sizes and both female models and male models have opportunities. In fact, plus size models are in demand as a large part of the general population fills this niche.
When it comes to modeling, many people have the notion that they either have to live in a hot spot or give up on their modeling dream. But what if you cant just pack your things and move to California or New York?
The following modeling tips will help get you on your way into the modeling industry.
You will need a resume about yourself. In your resume, include your modeling experience, hobbies, interests, and vital stats such as height, and weight. This is called a modeling portfolio.
Take pictures, specifically head shots and keep them simple. Wear neat and clean clothing. Dont worry about wearing the latest fashion or style. Ladies keep your make up simple. In fact, it would be best if you had several pictures of you without any make up. The same goes for hairstyles. Clear your face of any hair so that your face is fully visible. Keep your hair neat, clean and simple. If you cant afford a professional photographer, then use a basic camera. Make sure you have good lighting.
Research the addresses of modeling agents and agencies in your area. You can look this up in your local phone book, public library and online at our website Hollywood North.
After sending out your portfolio, do a follow up phone call or email every 2 weeks afterwards. Remember, these agencies may be getting hundreds of portfolios sent to them each week.
Develop your modeling skills. Look for local modeling schools or classes near your area.
Stay clear of any model agencies telling you that you have to pay money to sign up with them. In general, agencies receive a commission when you work.
