The world of fashion is fast, fun and exciting and many people want to have a career in this field. While there are many aspects of this field, such as designing, photography and more, many people have the desire to become a fashion model.
Most of us think of fashion models as highly paid, extremely thin and always in the spotlight, this is not always the case. There are many outlets for people who truly want to model and maybe earn some extra money.
Here are few steps to get you on your way to a modeling career.
Your initial photography shoots will more than likely be unpaid, for-proof shots. You can find many websites onlie that will help you find more information such as reputable photographers in your area. These shoots will help you build your needed portfolio.
Make sure you are constantly networking. Use modeling website forums as well as friends. Getting your first step in the door is probably going to be the most difficult part of your modeling career. Get to know makeup artists and hairdressers, as these people may work for companies that may need models.
Read fashion magazines. These magazines can provide information about companies and people who are hiring.
Join an agency. Do your research and join a reputable one. Reputable modeling agencies will not require any upfront payment or money from you. You will usually only need a head and full body shot. Some agencies may also require an interview.
