The Secrets You Need to Know to Become a Model
Ever dreamed of walking the runways? If you want to become a model, you'll find no end of people willing to give you advice on how to break into the modeling industry - for a price. You could easily spend thousands of dollars on modeling schools, photographers and agents in your quest to become a model. None of it will do you any good unless you know and understand a few important secrets about modeling and the modeling industry.
Before You Can Become a Model, You Have to Learn to Move Like One
Even in still photos, movement is a vital part of being a model, and learning how to move and pose is one of the first things you'll learn when you start learning how to become a model. If you watch any of the runway reality shows, you'll hear the models talking about developing a signature runway walk. That's only part of the secret of moving like a model. You need to understand your own body and how to display it, whether you're in a photo, a video or just walking down the street. A good modeling book can help you understand a little bit about finding your best angles and using them to your advantage when you move.
Figure Out Your Best Look and Learn How to Capitalize on It
There are some models who can fit into any market, but they're rare. Most models, both male and female, have a particular "look" that works best in certain markets. One of the biggest secrets to being a successful model is to figure out your most marketable characteristics and then market the living daylights out of them.
Learn to Recognize the Best Modeling Agency for You
Every successful model has stories about their run-ins with modeling scams. The fact is there are tens of thousands of people who want to become a model, and that's a tempting market for scam artists. They'll take advantage of you with promises and guarantees to help you break into the modeling industry, then disappear with your money. The more you know about how a real modeling agency operates - and which agencies are legitimate - the safer you'll be from scam artists who'll take your money and give you nothing in return.
Make the Camera Love You
No matter how great you look in person, if you can't take great pictures you'll never become a model. Don't let that fact discourage you. It's a myth that some people are naturally photogenic and others will never take a good picture. Taking amazing pictures is a skill that you can learn - and you'll have to learn it if you want to become a model.
