  • Honest Judgment about yourself.

    Are you enough honest evaluate yourself? Do you fit in this profession? Just praising of your looks by your friends is not enough. You must posses a package of great looks. Since in this profession you have to make other people to looks like you. A product endorsement banks on models looks. More than looks it is important how photogenic you are? So you are right person to judge your decision whether you are fit for this industry or not?

Alright you have great looks that can turn heads while you walking on public place but that is not enough at all. How do you look in photos are key factor for clients or photographers to choose you from the lot. It is quite often so deserving models get lost because of poor portfolio. You port folio should be much stronger than own looks. This would happen only either your portfolio is shot by a commercial photographer or a very talented armature. So before you step in this industry, you must be armed with a great portfolio.
  • Do you have inner strength?

    Beside looks and great portfolio, The model should posses strong will power and confidence to hunt for right opportunity with a determination to work harder and harder. You must be stronger from inside your attitudes, mannerism, communications skills, and patience can put you on the desired place in the industry. Never think that modeling is full of glamour, but if you look in to rationally it is not just glamour as it seems from outside. When you see a beautiful model wearing great smile, there is lot of hard work behind it from the client, photographer and creative people to full fill their set objectives. So your inner personality plays equal role as your outer look.
  • Do you have right direction?

    One more quality you must have is to differentiate between right and wrong people. If you are new to this filed you must choose the right band of people in this profession. Else, there are lots of bogus people in this industry who will misguide you at the cost of your own money. So never make fool out of you. Always go to professional photographers, coordinator, agencies, production houses for films and TV commercial, ad filmmakers. If you in right hands with a quality to become success no one can stop you to be top of the world.
  • Where are you located?

    As it is truth that in India, Bombay city is known for advertising agencies, TV production, films, photographers, ad film makers with lots or pre production and post production studios, creative people, events management organization, contest organization, set designers, fashion designers and houses. Obviously, if you are not located in Bombay then you must be capable to travel to Bombay. It said in this industry that everything is required yesterday. So for any appointment or call with clients, you must be available e across the table. And you must spend sizable time for your personal approach under the guidance of your coordination or agency. Again it needs hard work, time and money.
  • Measurements

    The best measurements for glamour modeling are 5'7", 34" bust, 24" waist, 34" hips. If you are within one inch of these measurements you are fit to model almost anything. High Fashion models are typically 5'7" to 6' tall and an extremely thin size 7 with 32-35" bust, 22-25" waist and 33-36" hips. They are not necessarily classically beautiful. PETITE measurements would be 5'5" to 5'8" tall and a size 5 to 7. The model MUST have a well proportioned body. PLUS SIZE models are 5'7" to 5'11" tall and wear a size 12 to 14, have a well toned and proportioned body with a thin face, good skin and beautiful hair. Always provide very accurate measurements to the agency and to customers. (Helps to save embarrassment if you get hired for a job and the clothes don't fit because you were not honest). For a man, heights should be 5'11" to 6'2" and you must fit in a 40-42" jacket.
    • The ultimate test for an aspiring Model

      Well almost... Send your photo and resume to reputable coordinators. Set-up an appointment and you will find out very quickly if you have what it takes. These people are very busy, if they don't like the photo you won't get an appointment. If they like it you will be invited for an assessment. Then again if you don't have what it takes they will tell you on the spot. (they want quality models). If rejected don't give up yet! Each coordinator/agency is different and has different expectations and requirements from their models. Always ask about any immediate physical changes (haircut, weight loss, skin treatment, dental work etc.) and work on it for the future. Some coordinators/established models offer good training (in the form of workshops/courses) for local fashion shows and print work. This can be a great way to gain confidence and experience.
      It's a collection of your modeling pictures. How many pictures you need varies. You should only keep strong pictures; you are only as good as your worst picture! Models should aim for quality not quantity! Avoid using 2 pictures of the same shoot (same look) Black and White is the favourite of the industry. 9 by 12 inches are the standard size. Your agency will require you to buy an 11 by 14 inches for their book (portfolio). A basic but versatile portfolio would have a casual head shot, styled head shot, body shot (conservative swimsuit or lingerie), a fashion shot (sexy), action shot, an editorial shot and even a catalogue shot. As you gain experience replace the older pictures with newer one. Keep your best picture at the end to leave a lasting impression! Do not wear Jewellery for those prints; it takes the attention away from you. The wrong choice of undergarments may show panty line or bra straps and will distract the viewer (on the job, or in interviews it can mean the difference between looking professional or not). Tailor your portfolio for your strengths and the type of modelling you are doing.
      Avoid "portrait photographer" they often don't understand the need of the fashion industry. See the photographer's portfolio. Do you like it? Does it represent the style and format your looking for? Commercial photographers might be a good source of work! Keep that in mind. Be concerned about photographers who seek to take nude pictures of you or claims to be working on a swimsuit calendar. Photographers should be professional and respectful and you should bring a friend along. Always be cheerful, you never know when you might get a free shoot or a free picture or an extra roll done at no extra cost! If you bring your own clothes to the shoot, always bring extra. If the photographer for example like your look and decides to do an extra roll you will be ready to benefit from it. Keep an open mind photographers love to do editorial shots.

      Always remember good beginning  means half work done.
