Fashion Modeling - How to Beat the Tough Competition

February 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 151

Becoming a fashion model is a dream-come-true for most young people. However, it is not as straightforward as it seems because just being tall and thin is not everything. Apart from being the right height and size, they consider other factors like the right skin tone and age of between 14 - 20 years. Having said this, it is still not a walk in the park when you have all these qualifications because the competition in the industry is extremely tight. One has to have that inner knowledge of the workings of this industry and have the distinctive edge when trying to make a successful fashion model career.

For starters, one has to find himself or herself a talented photographer. This is because photos, at the beginning of the career, are mostly the only way one can make a widespread campaign and get noticed by a prospective agent or employer. Going to casting calls and letting the casting directors have a look at your talent is crucial but some may be far away. Do not wait for the calls but just take your photos having different poses and settings, and take them to the agencies.

One will have to find an exceptional modeling agency that is honest and professional, as this will guarantee him or her steady flow of assignments. The model pictures are then given out to clients and could lead to a permanent assignment with leading companies, and this could send their modeling careers high up in the industry. Getting here, however, is a time consuming journey that will need a lot of patience, endurance and perseverance, due to high competition in the industry. After this, one will have to get to know new clients.

First impressions matter when doing so because this will be like a job interview. Making or breaking a new client will find your path at this point. Never overdo anything when it comes to such a client meeting. Dress modestly and use a little make up because the clients want to see the real person and not the superficial model. Have a charming and friendly attitude throughout the interview, remaining extremely professional at the same time.

After landing a client and it is time for a photo shoot, be professional about it. Being photogenic is the only way the model can send his or her message across to the audience. The best way to achieve this is to be cooperative with the photographer and be easy to work with. Always have fun while doing this because it is the career one loves and he or she is finally living his dream. In conclusion, modeling is extremely competitive, and one understands that he has to be hardworking and determined to make it.
