TIPS FOR YOU
HOW TO POSE?
A major factor in becoming a success in the modeling industry is by learning to pose properly. if you happen to be one of the few lucky women who have the instinct to pose naturally that's great, but if not, read the suggestions below and practice, practice, practice.
1. Practice different fashion poses before going to photo shoots
When you become a high fashion model, you may be offered a job modeling the latest in clothing, shoes, hats and other wardrobe accessories from top designers.
Be prepared for this job offer by practicing poses in front of a full length mirror with clothing, props and other products that you see advertised in high fashion magazines and on tv shows.
2. Focus on body posture
Always keep good body posture when posing for photo shoots unless instructed otherwise by your photographer. to give your abdomen a more toned appearance, hold your stomach in.
Position your hands where they will fall naturally and keep your fingers slightly apart. practice different ways of positioning your hands and tilting your head.
3. Practice facial expressions
Stay relaxed and pay close attention when giving different facial expressions. when posing, your expressions should be spontaneous.
Make your poses come alive by practicing how to give the "look." learn this by closing your eyes, imagining a thought, opening your eyes and selling the thought.
4. Show self confidence with your posing skills
Did you know that beauty is not the only talent clothing designers look for in fashion models? they want a model that shows self confidence in themselves, because the confidence will also show in the clothing or product the model is presenting. your self assurance will shine through when you are posing for the camera so keep practicing by visiting photographers until you feel very comfortable under the strobe lights of the studio.
Build your self-confidence by studying and practicing. learn to say "oh well, there will be another chance" when you are turned down. one day the self confidence you have obtained will be the major factor in making your dream come true.
Now, strut your stuff and show the fashion designers just what you have to offer them with your newfound female fashion model posing techniques.
MODELING ADVICE FOR YOU
Always try to be rested before a shoot, especially if a lot of travel is involved. The best shoots are ones where you feel rested and fresh.Always remember you are not considered a professional after one or two shoots. It takes a lot of work to get to that point. Nothing comes easy, most of the time Always present yourself in a very professional manner whether it be your first or 100th shoot.Keep your portfolio updated with new looks etc. We all change from time to time, never present yourself as something that you are not.

Clients are looking for someone who is self-assured and whom they think can sell their product. A model must be able to sell herself before she can sell a product. It is also important to be able to handle the rejection that every model must face. No model could meet the expectations of every possible client. It is always best to go into a casting not caring whether or not you get it. That way it's a pleasant surprise if you get the job but you aren't let down if you don't get it.
Because models must sometimes travel away from their Friends and family for a job, or move to a big city to pursue a full time career, it is important to have a great deal of independence. You must be comfortable being by yourself for long periods of time.
A model must be organized in order to keep track of the different dates, times and locations of appointments so that she can show up at appointments and go-sees on time.Stamina. A model is sometimes on her feet all day in the freezing cold or the hot sun. She must be healthy and in shape to be able to work all day and still look good. Eating healthy, going for walks/jogs and working out at a gym three times a week is a must.
Always go prepared : ie...clothing changes that you know will fit you. Don't always think that he/she will have everything that is needed for the shoot.Get references as many as you can. That would include other models and/or assignments that the photographer has had. Check and double check. And be sure that a legitimate photographer is doing the same with you. Never take anything for granted.
