Modelling



A Model is a person who is employed for the purpose of displaying and promoting fashion clothing or other products and for advertising or promotional purposes or who poses for works of art.

Modelling (“modelling” with a doubled “l” is British spelling, vs “modeling” single “l” American spelling) is distinguished from other types of public performance, such as an acting, dancing or mime artist, although the boundary is not well defined. Appearing in a movie or a play is not considered modelling.

So do you think you have the body to carry sensational clothes? When you look in the mirror, do you think you can walk the ramp, you have the confidence, you are glamourous? Well, then why not try your luck. Marriage and Pregnancy has always been considered to close the doors of modelling, however have you heard of the Mrs. World Pageant?

Fashion modeling is very competitive and you need to be able to take rejection well from modeling agencies, fashion photographers and modeling scouts. But if you are passionate about it then you can make it, so how can you start?

Have someone take photos of you. They do not have to be professional. Do not wear any makeup so that modeling agencies can see exactly what you look like. Try wearing p pair of jeans and a tank top to show your body type. Have someone take photos of you and make copies so that you can send to multiple modeling agencies.

Find a list of modeling agencies to send your photos to. Look for agencies in both your local area or even major cities if you would be available to travel to see them if selected to come in for an open call or interview.

Now that you have sent your photos to modeling agencies, you will need to be prepared for if you get called to come in for and open call or interview with a modeling agent. Go buy fashion magazine and study the photos of the models. Look at how the models pose and try to imitate the poses in the mirror. This will help you to become more comfortable taking fashion poses and working with fashion photographers.
