Aside from looking right, aspiring models need a certain set of qualities to succeed in the fashion world. If you are interested in a career as a model, you will need to have the ability to relate to people. Models have to make a good impression on a wide variety of people as part of their job, so you'll need to be courteous, professional, active and respectful to progress in the industry, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. You will also need to be organized. Be able to prepare photo shoots, interviews and travel calendars when you are just starting out. You will also need to be photogenic. If you freeze in front of the camera, your career won't get very far, no matter how attractive you are. It's important to learn to be comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera.
All aspiring models need a photo portfolio that shows their style. This doesn't have to cost a fortune. In fact, the modeling agency Storm in London advises aspiring models not to pay for professional photos at all. It is said that natural photos, without any make-up, provide the best indicator of a model's potential. Aaron Newbill, Ford Models head of talent scouts, told "Marie Claire" magazine: "The basis of a good portfolio should show a model that feels comfortable in front of the camera, that has variety of expressions and movement. Don't fall for the scams of bogus companies that offer to put together a successful portfolio in exchange for large sums of money.
The better your agency's reputation and capacity, the more contracts you can get, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Search websites and publications dedicated to modeling to find the agencies with the best reputation, then send a digital version of your portfolio to as many of these agencies as you can. If you have potential, someone will probably contact you. Check the agencies' websites for information about open calls and auditions you can attend. Always visit agencies with a parent, guardian, or trusted adult if you are under 18. If you are older, take a friend with you.
The standards are high in the fashion world and the competition is fierce. You'll have to be dedicated to staying fit and looking your best at all times if you want to have a successful modeling career. It is important to eat well, exercise regularly and sleep well. Avoid foods and lifestyles such as excessive alcohol consumption, which will have a negative effect on your appearance and prevent you from staying focused on your career.
