Getting into the modelling industry.
Breaking into the modelling industry seems impossible for models who are just starting. You know that it is something you have dreamt of doing, but how do you get into it?
Here at Cat Model Club we are here to help. We are a free casting and booking platform for new talent. And we are here to represent YOU.
We represent models, both male and female, find out their availability and help to get them work on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, depending on what they are looking for.
The first steps to becoming a model are:
1. Find out what type of modelling you would like to do. Would you like to do fashion modelling? Catalogue? Or even TV and film? Choose something you are comfortable with as knowing what category you wish to do is a huge step.
2. Create a portfolio. It doesn’t have to be huge, it just needs to include a variety of images, showing you naturally without make up, as well as close up. It is also a good idea to include a black and white image, a photo of you in your own clothes and every day make up, showing your personality, and you in a style which is out of your comfort zone, such as a grunge style, or trying out a simple, elegant look.
It is always a good idea to make an appointment with a photographer and stylist, to get your images taken by a professional, and your hair and make up done professionally.
This will show the contrast of your look, and how you can adapt for various shoots. It is good to have a CD made of your photos so you can apply to jobs easily online, and also a paper portfolio, with your images printed and presented in a book so you can take to castings.
3. Sign up with an agency such as us here at Cat Model Club, and we will be there to support you every step of the way. We will find the work for you so you don’t have to spend hours searching for the right job. We will represent you and get you seen by many companies.
4. Be yourself. It is completely normal to be nervous, but try and relax, and remember how much you want this. The camera will spot your fear a mile off, so take a deep breath and remember to breathe. When going to castings, enjoy it! Live for the moment and let the camera see how much you are enjoying yourself. This will go a long way.
