Hi

Good advice from Colin.

I never photograph ANY female alone, not to protect her but to protect me! Normally there is somebody for make-up and to help with lights, reflectors etc. and wardrobe.

When you have picture taken there is a good chance you or your parent/guardian will have to sign a 'Model Release Form". This is normal. This basically allows the photographer to use the photos for promotional and commercial use and will help keep your fees down. Notice I said "photographer" and not the "Agent", unless the Agent is paying for the photos (as if?).

Planning is the key to a good photo shoot and you should have a good idea what is expected before you turn up.

A mirror is a great tool to practice those poses you see in the glossy magazines. Yes you do need to practice just as anybody else would for any other profession. lol and get up at 5am sometimes.

Here is a couple of links just for interest ( not recomendation )

www.elitemodellookusa.com . . .

www.ftv.com . . .

Modeling is not all about the catwalk and it does not have to be your only job. Stick in at school in case it dose not work out.

Most of all like Colin said "Have FUN".

;)

Tom

Great post. I'm not interested in being a model (I'm too unphotogenic, hehe) but this really clears up a lot of questions people might have. I like certain things you've highlighted as well - like the fact soooo many people (in fact, without sounding horrible, probably most of the girls commenting on this thread) want to be a model just because it seems cool to say "I'm a model", it's flattering and will make people think more of you/boys will be interested. Not enough people understand how much hard work it is and how thick-skinned you have to be to do it, because not everyone's going to be talking about how pretty you are!

It's a bit like wanting to be famous - it seems cool, but I bet not many people can cope with the pressure.

Thanks for the post, though!

good post!
but..most of the time you will have to pay for
your photos when you are starting out.
You will have to pay for most likely 5 looks and then
the cost of printing composite cards.
so around 500 or so dollars.
This applies to ALL agencies big or small.
This is the ONLY time you will have to pay anything.

I know this thread is kind of old lol but thanks so much for posting. I wish I'd been a member of this site and seen it over the summer. I was "recruited" by one of those Modeling "schools" with the promise of repersentation by their agency once I "graduated." I stopped going after the first few months because getting to and from the class and paying for all of the extra stuff was ending up more expensive than the tuition itself. I don't think the school was 100% bad though, but the most that I learned (about casting and such) is pretty much in this thread! Anyway I'm 17 now and I know I'd love to do high fashion in the future. As soon as I get my braces off, I think I'll go to some open agency calls. Good luck to you aspiring models out there! And thanks again for this thread.

It's also really important to gain experience -- the more you model, the better you'll become. It takes practice like many things. Modeling for dancewear companies or costume companies is a great way to get experience. The comment about photogenic quality is so correct. Many beautiful people don't photograph well. Enter modeling contests only through reputable companies.
