While it is true that there are hundreds of perks that models enjoy like being able to visit beautiful locations, getting pampered, attending special event, getting to meet celebrities plus earning thousands of dollars, there is also more to it than meets the eye. It is still a job and you would need to follow the tricks of the trade in order to book jobs.
Even the most famous models in the world still have to undergo modelling auditions. The modelling world requires different skills and talent, it is more than just taking beautiful photos, and it is also about commanding respect and charm, as well as learning how to become professional in every way.
Here are some modeling audition tips
1. Be real.
This means having a genuine love for modelling, for acting out the scenes, for producing works of art. Do not get hooked up on commercial reasons for doing the job. Modelling must be done out of love for what you do, the perks just come in second. Be able to model dresses that real people wear, beauty products that real people use, be able to model a dress that can be worn by all shapes and sizes and then find out the best shape and size for you and promote your assets.
2. During the modelling auditions, select the proper dress.
Never under dress but never over dress as well. Learn what the photo shoot is all about. Present your assets. Select a dress where your body figure will come out and choose the perfect shoes. Be sure that you will look glamorous, up to date and colour coordinated, never appear dull. Take careful attention for your hair.
3. Get advice from fashion experts. Check the trends that are already out in order to avoid it. Watch modelling competitions and reality shows in order to get tips on what you can do. Learn as much as you can read magazines and learn the style and form of clothes that will accentuate your body.
4. Before the modelling audition you have to be able to know if the theme is about high fashion, glamour modelling, petite modelling, plus size modelling, teen modelling, mature modelling, body part modelling like hand modelling and real people modelling. You have to know if you fit the criteria to avoid wasting your time and to be able to develop the necessary skills needed for the job.
5. Advance your knowledge with runaway modelling as well, you have to learn how to walk and strut your stuff with confidence. Practice using different kinds of heels. Spend time practicing at home and on stage.
