Move from Looking Like a Model to Becoming a Model
You can't believe everything you see on TV. You've probably heard the television ad for a famous modeling school that tell you that you can become a model, or just look like one. Here's a big secret about the modeling industry - you don't have to look like a model to become a model. In fact, if you ask some of the biggest names in the modeling industry, they'll tell you that looks aren't the most important thing to help you break into the modeling industry. So if looks aren't the #1 predictor of success in the modeling world, what should you be doing if you want to become a model? Here are a few secrets from a modeling book written by a top New York model.
Put Together a Great Modeling Portfolio
Your modeling book is your professional lifeline. The photos in your modeling portfolio will get you jobs - or won't, so getting great photos is really important if you want to become a model. A hopeful model can easily spend thousands of dollars on photos for his or her portfolio, but you don't have to. One of the secrets that you'll learn in the modeling book is how to get free photos from great photographers to build a professional modeling portfolio.
Self Confidence Is Your Best Feature
You'll hear lots of models tell you to always show your best side or to find the light when you're being photographed. Few top models will share the true secret of getting bookings and jobs everywhere you go - self-confidence. When you step in front of a camera, walk down the runway or step into an interview with a designer or modeling agency, you have to believe that you have what they're looking for. If you don't believe it, you'll never be able to sell yourself as a top model.
Persistence Is the Key to Becoming a Model
Just as it is in many other industries, persistence is the key to being successful as a model. If you want to become a model, you'll be competing against thousands of other hopefuls. You will fail sometimes. Sometimes they'll want a blonde and you're a redhead. Sometimes they'll be looking for someone taller, thinner, heavier, darker, lighter or with bigger hands than you. You can't let it get you down and keep you from trying again.
Get Tips from the Pros
Get a good modeling book and learn about other professional tricks of the modeling industry. From choosing the right modeling agency to how to become an actor for commercials, you'll learn a lot about how to become a model from a book written by a top New York model.
