Become a model
When you are interested to pursue a career in modelling there are a few things you need to keep in mind to help you along the way:
Firstly, as a model it is extremely important to have the right attitude, you must have good time keeping and remain professional, and be able to get along with the client and those at the casting. It is also important to have the right sort of personality. Remember no one wants to work with people who are difficult or disrespectful!
It is advisable to have a portfolio of shoots to advertise yourself. You cannot pursue a career in modelling with no photos to market yourself to clients with. The photos you use must be professional and not home snaps. Remember, clients will only book you based on the photos you have to represent yourself - so if you have no photos or not good enough photos, you are directly stopping yourself from working. If you don't have professional photos, you can always look out for unpaid work through Asian Runway, from promotional to commercial, advertised on our face book page to build your portfolio. Try and gain as much experience as possible, and practice.
It is also essential that you start looking after yourself. You need to ensure you have a healthy diet, drink lots of water, remain active, get enough sleep and try to avoid too much smoking/drinking. You are a canvas to your career so it is important you have a healthy look when you meet clients. It is important to make sure your nails, hair and skin is looked after also.
Always be willing to listen and take advice because remember, we have your best interest at heart and want the best from you.
Realistically speaking, supermodels are in a minority and it is a very competitive industry. But modelling, as a career is fun and you will have some great experiences and meet interesting people. The most important thing is to always be yourself, be professional and courteous and to enjoy the experience!
