Read on to discover what it you need in your model toolkit, to ensure you’re always prepared when you need to be.
Being a great model is down to more than just having the right look. The more prepared you are, the more professional you’ll be – which means you’re more likely to get repeat bookings.
Here are our top tips for your model toolkit:
It’s essential that you can be contacted at all times. Keep your mobile phone with you – and charged – at all times, so you can always take calls and check your emails.
Always leave enough time to get to castings and bookings with time to spare. If you are running late, make sure to let the client know straight away.
Always smile and greet people warmly and enthusiastically whenever you walk into a room. Personality is as important as having the right look!
Be patient. Models work long hours so make sure to bring along a book, magazine or suchlike to keep you busy when you’re not needed on set.
Prepare a model bag for bookings, castings, shoots and shows. You should include:
Mobile Phone and Charger
Make-up and Mirror
Toothbrush and Toothpaste
Plain, Unbranded T-Shirt
Book or Magazine
Make sure you’ve got these things with you – both practical things and attitude! – and you’ll be more likely to secure bookings in the future. Modelling success is as much about attitude, personality and professionalism as much as having the right look, so pack your model toolkit with care.
