As a Professional Photographer of over 10 years experience, working with countless models I receive a great deal of calls and emails from budding models asking for advice on how to become a model, and I thought I would write a handy guide.
However, the reality is very different, modelling is one of the most difficult career choices a person can make and models are among the hardest working people in the world.
To be a model you must be a confident person, you have be at ease in front of the camera. Models must be perfect actors, to pose, create distinct looks, you must perform on demand creating a range of emotions and characters.
Their are 22 types of modelling from fashion to commercial, lifestyle, glamour and swimwear. Knowing which types of modelling you are suited is the key to success.
You may be suited to several areas, or you may be suited to just one. If you are interested in finding out which areas of modelling you are suitable for pleaseEmail Me.
A modelling career, isn’t just going to fall into your lap, you must be professional, patient and pleasant to work with, shoots can last hours, even weeks and no one likes a diva.
You must be able to take rejection and constructive criticism, you won’t be right for every job, in many cases you can attend 20 or 30 job castings and only succeed with 1 or 2 jobs.
Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle, eating the right food and looking after your body and skin is very important, your body is your most important asset.
Getting Started as a model can be very confusing their are a great deal of Sharks Swimming in the Waters of the Modelling World. Out to Bite you with schemes to take your money.
Knowing how to navigate the Waters is critical. With a decade of experience I am here to help, based in Liverpool and being able to offer My Package also in Manchester & Leeds.
Knowing which agencies to apply for and which casting websites to list your portfolio is very important. Joining the wrong agency can be disastrous costing you money and your career.
The most elite model agencies are the agencies that belong to the Association of Model Agents (AMA). The AMA is a self-governing group of agents that have set their own standard of requirements for those belonging to it.
Images are critical, if you don’t have the right images you won’t get work. Many companies offer portfolio services, and a great deal produce over airbrushed, unsuitably posed and styled images that casting agents and model agencies find unusable. Which will cost you more money to produce more images.
Speaking with many models over the years a great deal have come to me for Model Portfolios after having a costly photoshoot with a makeover studio, to find the images they have paid hundreds of pounds for are rejected.
If you look at models pictures, those models that don’t have a professional portfolio find it hard to get work. A Great model portfolio is your key to getting noticed in the highly competitive world of modelling.
Your model portfolio is many times the first contact a potential client or agency has with you. This means that your portfolio images are extremely important to your modelling career.
When you Book a Portfolio with Rory Lewis Photographer my service does not stop with just producing your portfolio. I can also help point you in the right direction with model agencies and the next steps to take, once your model portfolio is created. Offering tips and helpful advice to give you the best start in your modelling career.
Liverpool Hair Salon Chain Voodou has become a city wide institution, myself being a regular customer. Over the past few months, I have been working with a number of Liverpool Editorial Magazines and Newspapers organising and shooting Fashion Features. Voodou Liverpool helped on a number of sessions by Styling Models Hair. Working closely with Voodou’s top stylists I was recommended by the Team; to work with the Salon in a new citywide Advertising Campaign entitled “The Species Campaign”. Based on the “Space” song “Female of the Species“. The campaign was a wonderful opportunity to create stunning hair & beauty portraiture working with a fantastic team of models, hair stylists and makeup artists. Photographed over six Sessions, the concept was to shoot 12 Portraits for Magazine and Poster Advertising.
