modeling tips and hints
Unlike acting, when modeling you do not have to memorize lines and speak in front of rolling cameras. You don't have to wait at modeling auditions and perform in front of numerous people you do not know. It is a good idea however, to persue modeling lessons and schools. Often times a designer can tell which models have had proper training from lessons. There are many models looking for modeling lessons to learn the proper trades of a professional model. A small modeling runway show in your local mall may give you experience and help lead to a modeling job in a glamour magazine. The key is to always look your best. Remember, models come in a variety of shapes and sizes: tall models, short models, skinny and full size models. There are over 200,000 successful models in the nation, and you deserve to be one of them. But it is important first to find training in modeling lessons to begin shaping your career as a successful model.
What is the difference between a legitimate talent workshop and one whose purpose is to separate you from your money?
ANSWER: Just as there are many helpful, reputable talent agents, there are also a great number of fine lessons. But there are some whose only purpose is to take your hard-earned money. When considering a workshop or teacher, watch for the same warning signals that apply to talent agents and photographers. Like the phony agent, a workshop or teacher may ask for an exorbitant registration fee and demand that you have photographs taken by their photographer. Be suspicious of teachers who do not have legitimate credentials, or who "claim" to produce TV shows, movies, or theatrical productions. None of the unions representing performers will recommend any lessons. You may want to contact one of the Community Colleges in your area for classes in theatre, radio or television.
