Models are born. They are never made. It is in them, their peers, family, and even strangers recognize a model when they see one! It’s now time for you to see the model in yourself!
- Choose a type of modeling
This is the first basic step to becoming a great model. Although there are many types of modeling, you still need to be clear on which type you want to pursue. You can choose to be a print model or a runway model. Print models focus on magazine cover page photo shoots. Runway models represent fashion lines. There is also swimsuit or catalog commercial options of which you can choose one to specialize.
- Working with the right team
Now that you know what you exactly want to do, it is time to look for a team that is tailored to your modeling choice. Working with Nine9 you have access to a multitude of agencies. The team will keep submitting you for opportunities that you are most interested in and that suit your look best.
- Take smart photos
Do both full-length shot and headshot. Do not use heavy makeup. Wear simple pants and a tank top. Keep them up to date, every time you change your look you will be required to take new photos. Always remember to be smart with very little to no styling to enhance looks.
- Be positive and confident
Take challenges as an opportunity to better yourself. Always have a backup plan. Modeling can be a career on its own but can be a great career booster too. Having something else besides gives you confidence.
You should be able to perform on short notice. You can be called upon any time to represent Nine9. Modeling is all about being prepared. You will need to work hard, be determined, and have a positive attitude. No one wants to work with a diva. A photoshoot session can last days and you need to be there. Negativity can deprive you of important opportunities that will help you to succeed as a model.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is something you should never overlook. You will need to eat the right food. Your body is your asset and your job is to appear great.
