Become a model with IMAGE ModelsWhen you’re unsure of the next steps to take in life, never limit your possibilities. Sometimes things can turn around for you very quickly – and modelling is an industry that is full of extreme stories. Working your way through the salesman mentality of some agencies can be difficult. Sometimes it might seem that rather than you being employed by them it is the other way around!
One of the main ploys that many so-called agencies use is a model casting shoot. After this they may say that you need to buy the photos or you won’t have a chance of being a model. Nothing is further from the truth! A solid modelling portfolio can have as few as 6 photos. The main ones to make sure to include are a frontal headshot, a profile headshot and the same for full body. Alongside your photos you should also include a list of your vitals, measurements, weight and so forth. From a photo alone it can be impossible to determine your size especially if there is nothing to give scale to the photo. For specific types of modelling, eg. hand or foot modelling then obviously you will need detailed pictures and it helps to have something that gives a sense of scale – perhaps wear a watch or hold a pen in a stylish way. IMAGE Models can give you direction and pointers if you get in touch. We receive dozens of enquiries each week – there’s no such thing as a bad question!
