Choose a market:
The main markets are for catwalk, plus-size, commercial, and swimsuit/lingerie models. Choosing the one that you are most suitable for will have a major effect on your success. At www.londonfashionmodels.net we can help with all styles.
Catwalk models are at least 5’8″ and quite thin. Plus size models are usually about the same height but most wear over a size 10. Commercial models can be a little shorter and of different body types. Swimsuit/lingerie models often have larger chests with smaller waists.
Create a portfolio:
It is important to build up a portfolio if you are really keen to start a modelling career, as it’s the first thing casting agents, brands or designers look at and it includes pictures and all the past work so that will determine if they want to work with you.
It doesn’t matter if you will do unpaid shoots (especially in the beginning), just as long as you will expand your images portfolio and you will give the idea you’re working hard on your future dream career. We www.londonfashionmodels.net can arrange a sitting with one of our friendly professional photographers.
Submit your photos:
Research, research, research. You have to find the agencies you are interested in, in the first place, and then you will have a complete list of your favourite picks and from then just the ones that you liked will reply.
Then check out the agencies’ websites and make sure you find out how they prefer you to submit your portfolio. If you follow their rules, they will very much appreciated it.
Many agencies have open casting calls, which are an awesome opportunity for aspiring models. At an open call, models bring in their portfolios and meet with casting agents. www.londonfashionmodels.net can supply you with details during your shoot with us.
Look for Experience:
Some colleges have modelling clubs where aspiring models share information about castings they’ve heard of and give each other tips on everything from how to photograph well to what to wear to a go-see.
Through Facebook, you can join modelling groups where you can find other aspiring models like you and have meetings, sharing experiences.
Keep social media platforms:
One thing you might want to do is keep many social media profiles, which will be a way to reach different kind of people interested in you. This will raise the bar and give you more exposure and contacts.
Also, it’s great if you can feature behind the scenes of your shoots or just you lazing around town, on platforms like Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. If you want to add a more personal touch, start to upload some videos on Youtube. Follow all our social media accounts; these can be viewed by going to.
