7 Modeling Tips by the Dashing and Handsome – Vineet Soni:
We know that modeling agencies demand a thin skin by females. It is the same with male models too. You need to be lean if you want to approach leading modeling agencies. There is a major demand for that picture perfect image in the fashion world.
Presence of mind:
A ramp show may happen anytime, anywhere. It includes a public event or an open mall space. It is very important that you have a good presence of mind when you are changing your costume. There are possibilities that the roof of the temporary changing space is open and people from the upper floor may click your pictures. This can be embarrassing and humiliating. Remember, you are paid to show your costume and not nudity.
Most of the ramp shows are never pre planned. You can be called anytime of the day. It is important that you make yourself available to be a successful model. There are oodles of images stored in the directory of modeling agencies and they will find it difficult to locate you unless you make yourself available in many shows.
Payless shoots in some modeling assignments:
If you think every modeling assignment gets you great earnings, you are still a beginner to understand it. Many beginner models do not get paid for all shoots. The agencies trade their shoots with apparels and pictures. Sometimes, you don’t even get that. Hold onto that patience and make your name in the market before you demand anything.
Vineet agrees that modeling is a great part of glamor world, that’s not all! Not all shoots will give you a comfortable location. A model may have to work on a bad weather or in wrong type of clothes too. There are different positions that a model need to prepare for and some of these are really uncomfortable to get the shots.
Self-Security in Modeling:
Modeling isn’t an easy option to choose in your career. Some brand endorsements may lead you to serious troubles. Be sure to guard yourself in whatever future circumstances. There are times when people may want to capture you in their camera when you don’t wish to be photographed. Many models face situations with hidden camera in their trial or changing rooms. Be very alert; check everything before you begin your shoot.
Many people presume that modeling is a quick task. Everything involves a long waiting period. From hairdo, makeup, costumes, photographer, to receiving your pictures, there is a long waiting period. Those who have the patience to learn and earn in modeling can succeed. You need to take along another hobby like reading a book or exploring the world on phone, during the wait.
