Do your research before signing to any agent and make sure you understand the contract that you are signing.

This can all be found through proper online research using Google. 


Tip 3 : Keep Your Online Presence Fresh  

Make sure that potential partners and fans can easily view your profile and portfolio images online without any hassle. We strongly recommend creating a WordPress website that acts as a foundation for your career. What we mean is that any activity that takes place in your real world, should be documented into your website growing your profile and status whilst also keeping it fresh for your fans.

Write to your fans about upcoming photoshoots and events, and provide them with other interesting news that is happening in your career. Vlog’s and creating videos are other great ways of letting your fans get up close and personal with you and will show them a different side of your personality, at times, much more than photographs can.  


Tip 4: Study Your Favorite Models Careers 

This is a great path-learning experience that will provide you with lots of insight into the road ahead. Learn from your idols, study their pasts, study their current status. Learn about the mistakes that they made and the struggles they overcame to achieve the success that they’ve earned.

Tip 5: Practice & Learn Your Art 

As the saying goes, practice makes perfect! To be a professional at anything takes hours and hours of dedication to master your art. Practice in front of the mirror, practice in the shower, practice in front of friends or family. You need to get used to being behind the camera with people observing you like you’re some kind of zoo animal. Absorb the pressure and shine! 

Getting that confidence by training yourself regularly goes a long way in the modeling industry. It also helps you act naturally as a model and by learning the terminology you will be looking and sounding like a professional model in no time!
