The best way to find a modeling job is to do your research. One of the first places you should start when looking for a modeling job is online.
Before you begin looking for a modeling job, it is important for you to get a headshot taken, preferably by a professional photographer. Your head shot should include a photo of you looking your best and should also include your contact information. You may wish to include other photos such as a swimsuit shot or a lingerie shot.
The key to finding a modeling job is to be persistent. It can often take hundreds of inquiries and auditions before you land a modeling job.
Remember, you don't have to be the perfect size, color and age to get a modeling job. There are modeling jobs available for all types of people including plus-sized models, older models and child models.
There are other modeling jobs for people who don't even have to show their face. If you have nice looking hands, for example, there are often opportunities for hand models.
If you really want to distinguish yourself from the hundreds of other models who may be auditioning for the same photo shoot, do your research on the product or service before arriving to the casting call.
As in all casting calls, make sure you dress for success. For men, wear a suit and tie. For women, wear something sexy if the role calls for it or wear something conservative if the role calls for it.
If you have any modeling experience, make sure you develop a portfolio of you work which may include print work and video clips of television or movie performances. You may want to also develop your own website to show potential employers.
Always be professional when going on a casting call for a modeling job. Make sure you are well groomed, dressed appropriately and have your headshots ready. Make sure to make eye contact with the casting director or producer and answer all questions thoroughly. Try not to interrupt and don't talk about yourself the entire time. Ask questions, be polite and courteous at all times.
Modeling is not the only way to break into the entertainment industry. Casting directors and producers are always looking for extras, voice over talent and actors for television shows and movies.
The best way to get started in the industry is to network with talent agencies and meet top directors and producers.
