Becoming a model


 Becoming a model

Aspiring models, there’s never been a better time to make your dreams come true. The modeling industry is exploding, and the demand for new faces is always high. It’s possible that your big break could be just one Instagram selfie away.

But before you rush out to buy a selfie stick and start snapping pictures of yourself in mirror selfies in all sorts of poses, it helps to know what you’re getting into. Here’s everything you need to know to get started on your journey.

First of all, let’s talk about the basics. What is modeling?

Modeling is an industry that involves paid work as a person who wears clothing for the purpose of advertising and selling those clothes to the public. Some models are professionals that make a living off of their appearance, while others are amateur models who do it for fun or as a side job.

You don’t have to be tall and skinny (or even particularly attractive) in order to become a model, but you do need to be photogenic.

Here are some essential tips for becoming a great model:

Learn to have a natural smile: Models know that having a nice smile can make their pictures look more attractive. In fact, smiling in pictures makes it easier to take good pictures in general. Learn facial expressions: Models know that expressing emotions effectively can make their images more appealing than just "blah blah blah." Learn to pose well: You’ll never get hired if you don’t produce amazing pictures. Fortunately, modeling is really about posing and not posing. That said, there are certain models who really do spend some time on their poses before starting the actual shoot (such as Karl Lagerfeld). Learn to breathe: Models know that breathing well is important so they focus on their breathing. Breath in and out slowly, and then exhale smoothly. Learn how to walk in heels: Models often have to walk in heels while posing for photography (this may change over time depending on the industry that the model wants to work in). That said, one thing you should do before starting your modeling career is learn how to walk.

Now that you know what modeling is, it’s time to get started!

Step One: Pick a Word or Instagram Account : This will help you get your first model job. Otherwise, you’re going to have a hard time getting any sort of traction.

Step Two: Fill Out an Online Form : If you don’t already have a Facebook profile or an Instagram account, then this is the best place to start. For Facebook, create your profile or log into your existing account and click “Request to join Instagram.” For Instagram, find the “Create Your IG Account” tab and follow those steps.

Conclusion: Before you can start modeling you’re going to need to be active on social media. Facebook is obviously the biggest platform and it’s important to start there. Instagram is a newer platform that has a huge following so it will be important for the future. Learn about your product and use that knowledge in your pictures so when potential companies find you they know exactly who they want.

Get Social!

Next, get out there and meet people! This is where most aspiring models begin their journey, often by posting photos of themselves on Facebook or Instagram or asking friends to help them get on Model Mayhem.
