How to Become a Model
Becoming a model is an exciting career that many people aspire to. Though it is not easy to become one of the top paid supermodels that everyone would like to achieve, it is not beyond reality to believe that you can earn a very nice living as a model.
The Look to Become a Model
Have you got the look to become a model? While everyone thinks of models as super fit, slender, gorgeous beauties without a blemish, that is not necessarily the case. This describes the stereotypical top model on television and magazine covers, but there are other positions that allow for less than perfect people to work in the modeling field. Granted, they do not pay the nice fat checks that the supermodel positions result in.
There are a number of modeling positions for everyday people that will earn you honest money.
• Big and tall stores and magazines.
• Superstore flier ads use everyday people for their advertisements.
• Local productions often do not have stringent requirements for employment.
• Weight loss products often select large people, help them lose weight, and pay for the before and after pictures.
• Commercials for local businesses.
Preparation for Job Application
In addition to beautifying yourself and keeping yourself up visually, there are a number of things you must do to prepare yourself to become a model. You must have a portfolio available. This must include high quality still shots and may also include various videos depending upon the type of positions that you are interested in obtaining. As most everything has gone digital and many application processes are conducted via online methods, you must have your portfolio available in both hard copy and in digital formats that can be transmitted electronically.
To have the best shot at the best jobs, you should have a professionally developed website that showcases your best sample work. Provide areas for both still shots and video samples on your site. In addition, if you have any previous experience, provide a professional resume. Keep in mind that if you are lacking paid experience you can include volunteer gigs that you have performed. The truth is that your visual portfolio will be your best selling point.
Now it is Time to Become a Model
Once you have completed your preparation you can begin applying for modeling jobs. You may find great success applying for modeling jobs that are advertised on craigslist. In addition to your own local area, you may dramatically increase your chances of landing a modeling job if you expand your search to areas to which you are willing to drive. As with anything the initial couple of jobs are the hardest to land. After you have some legitimate modeling experience to add to your professional resume it will become easier to land better paying gigs.
Confidence is one of the most appealing characteristics to those that are looking to hire models so chin up and show them what you have to offer.
