Do you want to become a model? Read HMA 3 tips for breaking into modelling.
1. STRIKE A POSE
It's the oldest trick in the book. But being aware of your best features and poses can be a make or break in the modelling industry. Learn what makes you unique and bring it to the camera.
2. PREPARE A MODELLING PORTFOLIO
While selfies and outfits pictures are great for showing off creativity and style, most agencies will want to see how you work with professional photographers. So, it's time to hire a photographer and build a modelling portfolio. Portfolio images are usually very simple, with minimal styling and should feature a headshot and a full body shot.
3. LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES
Find out what type of modelling you love and where your skills are most in demand.
Platforms such as Starnow are great for finding castings and many other opportunities! Also try volunteering with other creatives who want to build their portfolios. Aim to achieve as much variety as you possibly can.
