If you've ever wondered to yourself, could I have a model, you first need to understand the three critical mistakes you must avoid to improve your chances of being a fashion model. What do you do if you're an attractive women who is under 5'8 “, you wear a size 2 to 8, you're 18 to 30 years old, and you have a burning desire to be a fashion model?
You probably think your dream of becoming a fashion model, traveling, and meeting exciting people is near zero. If you avoid these 3 critical mistakes, you can improve your chances of being discovered as a model.
Critical Mistake # 1:
Paying for professional photos, thinking that professional photos will get an agency to sign you. Agencies need to see you in a raw, all-natural state. This helps them determine your potential. If you have makeup and a hair style, they do not know your potential because your look is already set through your makeup and hair style.
You really only need 7 photos, nonprofessional, and I will show you how to take them and what to wear in the photos. This is the preferred way agencies want to see you. If you do not believe me, call any agency and ask if they prefer professional or nonprofessional photos.
Critical Mistake # 2:
Another critical mistake if you're wondering, could I be a model, is not really determining the type of model you really are: Are you High-Fashion, Main Fashion, Sophisticated Fashion, Commercial Print, Fit, Runway, etc. If you do not know what I'm talking about, you really need to keep reading because this breakdown for you. You need to know what type of model you are to know how to introduce yourself to the various agencies.
Critical Mistake # 3:
Sending your photos to the wrong agency or wrong department at an Agency. Each agency specializes in certain model types and not others. If you send your photos to an agency that specializes in High-Fashion, but the industry considers you a Commercial Print model, that agency will just throw your photos in the trash. You must target your photo package, which is something I show you how to do later.
If you've ever been rejected by some modeling agencies, you probably never received a clear reason why? People at modeling agencies are very busy and do not have time to explain the process. when you ask yourself, could I be a model, first ask yourself if you are ready to avoid the three critical mistakes mentioned so far.
