DO THESE AND YOU ARE ON YOUR WAY TO BECOMING A SUPER MODEL – SAYS TYRA BANKS. 1. MAKE USE OF THE BEST OF YOUR PICTURES Your portfolio should be able to stand as a fast selling point for your modeling career. When preparing your portfolio, use the best of your pictures. A few of your best pictures will do more than a bunch of mediocre pictures. All the agencies will not find you worthy but, your chances will be enhanced when you present something that speaks well of you. Your pictures should show how confident you are. 2. BE NATURAL Agencies prefer to meet potential models in their natural looks than with make-ups. So, always be yourself when meeting with an agent. Also, remember that confidence is the virtue in the modeling industry. Appear before your agent in a simple outfit(like, shape-revealing outfits) for them to see all the talents and potentials in you. 3. PUT UP AN ATTRACTIVE FACIAL EXPRESSION. You should always put up a smiling face as this has the tendency of softening a hard heart. Even if you don’t naturally know how to do that…learn. 4. BE OUTSPOKEN. You should have a great personality to be able to survive as a model. Always speak up and say what you feel is right. This will make you stand out. Agencies don’t like models who are shy and nervous. You should be able to face an interviewer and battle with him or her politely. 5. CHOOSE THE RIGHT AGENCY Different agencies represent different models. Some represent young girls, some represent plump-sized models, others represent older models. So, choose the one that suits you. Research is necessary here. Go through your local magazines to see a list of agencies to choose from. 6. ALWAYS BE READY I always lay emphasis on confidence because that is what will increase your chances of surviving in the industry. If you think you are having problems with some certain things, then go for a short lesson to boost your morale.
