Interested in Modeling….Don’t know how to Get Started?

Choosing to become a model is a long term commitment. There are those of us who find their break in the modeling right away but this is a 1 in a million opportunity. The other 99.99% must create our moments. Venus Models Online understands the hard work involved in making your dreams happen and whether you are in Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Dallas, Atlantic City, New York, or even Vegas you must have the tools to get the job done. We want to give you some of the tools you will need to help you improve your chances of landing your dream job.

Below is a work up of some of the basic tools you will need to ensure you are headed in the right direction when it comes to modeling, whether its print, commercial, or runway the path is about the same so listen closely and jot down any notes you may need to get you on your path to success:

Tool 1: Desire: The glitz and glam of modeling is a big turn on to many, however when it comes down too it few have the drive needed to keep going. The first and most basic tool you need to be on your path to success is the desire to be a top model. Behind the glitz and glam is work and coming in knowing this will help your chances for success greatly.

Tool 2: Know what kind of model you want to be: Though modeling is pretty much the same in every industry there are a few variations. Being honest with yourself and knowing what type of model you want to specialize in up front will help you cut out the change in your plans later. For instance if you don’t like to walk /or pose in front of audiences then runway modeling probably isn’t for you. However print modeling maybe a better choice.

Tool 3: Prepare a Portfolio: When starting out it is important to have a professional portfolio created to give the potential agents a glimpse of you. Head shots, body shots, and additional poses will enable you to present yourself professionally.

Remember behind the glitz and glamor modeling is still a job and just as a job you must work your way to the top…

Modeling Tips – Finding an Agent Wednesday, Oct 1 2008 

Breaking into the world of modeling is quite a challenge in today’s competitive world. However there are some things you can do to not only improve your chances in finding a good agent but also to protect yourself when you find one. Finding an agent shouldn’t be all about if they will accept you; you must be satisfied with them as well.

Below are a few tips to help you out:

Tip 1: Build a suitable portfolio- This is a very important step. Any agency you go too will want to see your portfolio. Setting up quality head shots will help them see you. Make sure they are taken with mild make-up and they are able to see your face clearly. It is important not to overdo them it will be hard for the agent to see the working template if there is too much or your face is hidden.

Tip 2: Be Persistent- This is important because there will be many “Rejections” in your search. You must understand that just because you are not suitable for one agent doesn’t mean you are not perfect for the next. Keeping high spirits will make it easier to move to the next prospective agent.

Tip 3: Find an Agent You are Comfortable with- Learning to be confident in yourself and not settling is another important step. Find an agent you feel comfortable working with take your time and remember you are placing your career in their hands.

Tip 4: Make sure your Interests are Protected- Quite often when someone places a contract before us we are so excited we don’t read it thoroughly. Be sure you take your time and don’t rush into it. If you are not sure about the contract take it to a lawyer have them read it. If they are a good agent they will understand.

Take your modeling seriously and don’t rush it. It will come just have the confidence and don’t settle for what looks good!
