Modelling can be an exciting and lucrative career path but it can also be a competitive one!
For the savvy and determined model there are many things that you can do to maximise your chance of gaining model bookings successfully with Models Direct. This blog includes a few tips on ways you can ensure you are doing everything you can to break into the modelling world!
Modelling opportunities come in many forms and whether you’re hoping to gain work in advertising, TV, photographic shoots, catwalk, promotional work, hosting, or any of the other categories that modelling has to offer, it is always helpful to remain as flexible as possible in your approach. Remember that any experience you get is an advantage, so if you’re open to a diverse range of potential assignments you are more likely to find more success in future. The team at Models Direct will always call you to let you know you when you have been selected for a particular assignment, you will be briefed about the job and then it is up to you whether you accept it.
Models with additional talents obviously widen their appeal, so don’t forget to promote whatever skills you feel you already have and work on new ones to add another string to your bow. This could be something as simple as great people skills and confidence or it could be a specific talent such as the ability to sing, dance, act or even perform martial arts. Anything that gives you an edge will be to your advantage so let people know about what makes you unique. Clients may be more likely to book a model with additional skills.
As an aspiring model you will need to put yourself out there and create networking opportunities. An agent may be able to help you with this. If you do successfully gain any offer of representation be sure to keep any online profiles up to date with images and a brief biography where possible so that clients have access to your current look. Collect references from any work offered and build on your portfolio. The Models Direct team are always available to help you with this and to advise you on the best images to use on your portfolio, uptodate, good images are essential to your success.
