Freelance Modeling JobsEvery day hundreds, maybe even thousands, of men and women, young and old scour the internet for modeling agencies with the premise of finding work. Many will be looking in the wrong places. This may be a bad thing, but if you know the right places to look and the right way to go about it, then you’re already in the lead. The way you go about getting freelance modeling work will differ depending on your age.
The older you get, the better equipped you will be to approach and assess situations that arise when looking for modeling jobs. You are on one side, an agency is in the middle, and the advertiser is on the other side. If you want to go freelance while you’re with an agency, make sure you have a non-exclusive agreement with them. Draw up a list of advertisers, call them. Find out who their casting agent is and introduce your self. Ask if it would be okay to send them your portfolio and CV. Don’t make the mistake of writing dozens of “To whom it may concern…” letters. These are not very effective compared to a personalised letter following up a phone call or introductory email. If possible, go to their offices and show your face. At the end of the day, it is work you are after and you never know what other roles might be available. For more modeling advice and reviews visit this IMAGE Models blog.
Being a freelancer is a tough road to walk. It’s normally a good idea to hold a steady job until you establish your self. Even the most talented freelancers can find it hard to compete with the incomes of civil servants and community workers, because we forget how many perks come with a steady job. When you’re making the decision, make sure you have considered every aspect of what it really means to be freelance. Visit the IMAGE Models website for up to date
