Types of Modeling-There are various types of modeling to choose from and most models don’t just stick to one kind. Very broadly, they can be classified into Fashion Modeling, Body or Body Part Modeling, Commercial Modeling. The following are the most ethical types.
- Fashion modeling of course can be further divided into print, runway, editorial, catalog, lingerie, bathing suit, fitness, size specific (petite, plus size etc) modeling and possibly a few more.
- Commercial modeling this is actually the busiest modeling in a medium to small market size. This includes lifestyle modeling, sport modeling, modeling for trade shows, product promotions, etc.
- Body part modeling is actually an off-shoot of fashion modeling which uses models for specific body parts. So for example, a model with great hands would be used for an ad for a hand cream.
Finding Work-There is never a lack of work for models but for paying jobs it is very competitive. Finding work can be hard on your own, especially if you’re an unknown face with no proven talent. The best way to start out in modeling is to work with a reputable agent who takes you under their wing. It is the agency’s job to promote you and find you work and it helps you gain a foothold while you’re still new to the industry.
Versatility-You will immediately become more employable when you are versatile and can pretty much suit any role a client needs. Versatile model are just as comfortable at photo with different photographers and products at photo shoots as they are saying lines for various TV commercials or working as a spokes model. Once you’ve proven your abilities, you will soon become the person the client asks back for the next promotion as well. This is when it becomes much easier because you do not have to continually audition, they just directly book you.
The Client-Your career is client-driven. Your ability to book jobs is based on how well you can help the client sell the product or service. Without the client you will have no work, and obviously no pay. Doing an amazing job when you are booked will force the client to hire you over and over again.
