So, how to become a model
Many girls believe that in order to do this, you must necessarily pass a course of modeling school, but in fact, this is not the case. If the designer will need exactly the same type of appearance as you have, then on the casting, he can choose you regardless of whether you were trained in a model school, it all depends on the girl’s potential. But also do not forget about the competition, so it is important to show yourself so that you could be chosen from a huge number of other girls.
Another prerequisite for promotion in the modeling business is a portfolio. It should contain only good, professional photographs, some of the best, even if there are not so many of them.
The main thing is professionalism, the photos must be perfect. And all of them should be diverse. Each photo has its own story, new poses and emotions — that’s what your employer expects from you. You can start by taking a picture and paying a professional photographer to put it in your portfolio, it’s a necessary element that a model can’t do without.
Cooperating with a modeling agency
Be careful in your choice of agencies, there are a lot of scammers among them. Remember, if an agency requires any investment from the model, or immediately, without paying attention to the fact that you are a beginner, offers a suspiciously high fee, most likely, it’s a scam, such agencies should not be trusted.
To avoid becoming a victim of such scams try to go casting in those agencies that have long been on their ears and have a good reputation.
After the casting you will either be selected for further cooperation, or refuse you. In the second case, do not get upset about it, because many famous models also repeatedly refused, but they succeeded due to the fact that they kept their noses and went ahead to their goal.
If the agency offered to sign a contract with you, do not rush to sign all the documents — be vigilant, read carefully all the points, especially the text written in small print.
Once you have made sure that everything written matches all the necessary conditions, sign the document. Do not forget that the contract must have at least two copies, one for the employer and one for you, and make sure that both copies have all the necessary stamps and signatures.
