We’ve all heard the fairytales: Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, scouted in airports, plucked from obscurity and thrown into superstardom.
For the overwhelming majority, breaking into modelling isn’t that simple – but it doesn’t have to be difficult.
Freelance Modelling: What You Need To Know
Social Media is one of the biggest tools in your arsenal, as an aspiring model. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram: these are where the faces of tomorrow are being discovered.
Freelance modelling is the fastest growing area of the modelling industry. The rise of social media means it’s never been easier for models to get discovered and booked without the help of a modelling agency.
Growing your social footprint can bring immense opportunities for a model. Cara Delevigne credits much of her success to social media, having built a thriving brand and secured millions of Instagram followers.
In today’s world, it’s not the tallest or skinniest models winning the most lucrative modelling jobs, but the ones with the largest social following. Freelancing modelling means you don’t have to conform to anyone else’s ideals (except your audience on social media, of course).
A word of caution though: the Internet is unregulated, so there are obvious potential dangers with connecting with people you don’t know online. As long as models are cautious, though, the opportunities are very real. Freelancing modelling could offer a big opportunity.
