What is Modeling? It’s more than a pretty face.
Modeling is more than a pretty face. It’s to simulate a consumer who represents the brand. To put it simply, a company hires a model to advertise their product or service. Advertising comes in many forms. When people think of modeling, many assume that you have to be very tall and very thin. While that is the norm for editorial models, who frequently work on runway shows and high end fashion lines, many models are actually commercial talent. Commercial talent is everything except editorial modeling and that represents over 90% of the models you see on TV and print today. There is a huge push for alternative models, which is a model with a unique look or feature.
There is a huge push for real people casting, as well as alternative looks.
Models come in all shapes, sizes and backgrounds which we fully support. Watch the Latitude Talent Webinar on the Rise of Alternative Looks in the modeling industry.
If you’re looking to become a model, or take your current modeling career onto the next level, landing a modeling agency is a very important piece to complete the puzzle. If you’re just starting out as a beginner model, there are many alternative routes you can take to get started without the help of an agency. However, if you’re looking to start landing major campaigns, a modeling agency contract is the ultimate objective for some to reach that goal. These 3 tips can help you land a modeling agent.
Networking is very important in the entertainment industry. If you ask any established model or actor, they will tell you attending network events, workshops, and seminars takes up most of their time. It is very important as a beginner to network with not only other models, but also with local players in your market. If you aren’t located in a major market like New York, Miami or Los Angeles, it is best to seek out events in the next Major market. An example would be if you live on the outskirts of Massachusetts, you’d want to find a modeling agency that’s located in Boston. You can find workshops and networking events on sites like EventBright and MeetUp, which allows others with similar interest and hobbies to connect with one another. Many beginner models are unsure how to connect with agencies besides just submitting their pictures on the website. Attending model boot camps as well as virtual online auditions can also provide exposure and networking.
