All you need is a bit of knowledge and the right attitude.
This step-by-step guide will help you learn how to become a model with no experience, so read on for all the tips and tricks!
What Types Of Modeling Can You Do?
Before we dive into how to start modeling without prior experience, let’s take a look at some types of modeling that exist in the industry today.
Keep in mind that there are countless different types of modeling jobs available worldwide; however, these are some common categories: fashion/runway models, commercial print models, plus size models, petite models, fitness/sports models and hand/foot models.
Depending on what kind of modelling job interests you most; pick one or two categories and focus on them when building your portfolio.
Building Your Portfolio
The next thing you must do when getting into modeling with no experience is build an impressive portfolio that showcases your best features and abilities as a potential model candidate.
When creating this portfolio make sure to include high quality images taken by professional photographers who specialize in headshots or full body shots (depending on what type of modelling).
Also include information such as height measurements (for runway and other fashion related shoots), clothing sizes (for apparel campaigns) etc.
, which will be useful for future casting calls.
Finding The Right Agency
Once you have built up your portfolio it’s time to find yourself the perfect agency! Your chosen agency should match both your aesthetic preferences as well as goals within the industry – so research thoroughly before signing any contracts! Make sure they offer guidance throughout bookings & auditions as well as ongoing advice about upcoming opportunities.
Networking And Building Relationships In The Industry
Networking plays an important role within modelling – regardless if its digital or physical connections being made – keep track off all contacts which could potentially lead onto bigger projects down the line!.
Attend events including conferences & workshops hosted by professionals from agencies but also from magazines & other media outlets too – making connections here can open up doors previously closed due to lack off relevant work history.
Before attending castings make sure that everything has been double checked ahead off time – hair should be styled correctly , nails cleanly manicured , makeup applied nicely etc .
Be prepared mentally too ! Remember why you’re auditioning in first place .
Dress appropriately depending on brief given from client – wearing something simple yet chic usually works just fine ! .
Stay Positive & Take Feedback On Board During this process stay positive & open minded towards feedback received back post auditions .
If constructive criticism was mentioned then use it productively going forward instead off feeling disheartened ! Constructive Criticism allows us room for improvement thus increasing chances moving forwards successfully .
