Breaking into modelling can be a challenge. The modelling industry is competitive, and it can be difficult to get modelling agencies in London to pay attention to you.
We work with aspiring models to help them overcome these challenges and break into the modelling world.
Breaking into Modelling: What You Need To Know
Some of the most common questions we hear are:
Q Which modelling agencies should I apply to?
Q I’ve had a negative response, or not heard back at all. What now?
Q What can I do to find more modelling opportunities?
If you’re thinking of breaking into modelling, we can help. Building a career as a model isn’t easy, but it doesn’t have to be so difficult.
The top five tips we give aspiring models are:
Apply to the right agencies for your look. If you’re a commercial model, applying to a fashion agency is a waste of your time.
Understand the needs of the modelling agency. Knowing what decision makers want to see from you means you’re better placed to be a fit for them.
Work on your self-awareness. Modelling is a performance just as acting or dancing is, and being self-aware will give you the confidence to perform to the best of your ability.
Choose the right images. You get a few seconds to make an impact, so you need your images to pack a punch if you’re breaking into modelling.
Know your business. Having the right look might get you into a casting, but you won’t get booked unless you know your business too.
We Are Models can help you build a modelling career by matching you to the agencies you’re most suitable for, helping you get your foot in the door.
We have extensive knowledge, experience and a whole lot of contacts in the modelling industry, so we can advise you on how to position yourself so you start getting more work.
The rest is up to you. A career as a model demands hard work, a great attitude and a business mentality: if you’re prepared for that, breaking into modelling might not be as difficult as you thought.
