What are some common mistakes made by aspiring models?
Here is the in on what not to do. If an agency says, “no”, no means no. This does not mean showing back up at the agency four times within the same month, as this is disrespectable to the agent’s time and chances are you are not going to get a “yes” if you keep showing up. The bottom line is that you want an agency who wants to work with you. Another common mistake is that many aspiring models are taken advantage of. All reputable agencies do not require any amount of money up front. The chance to get discovered is actually free.
What are the most important last tips to consider?
Do not be on time to agency appointments – be at least 15 minutes early. Also, always have your photos on hand and comp cards. Additionally, you should do your due diligence first and research if an agency is only looking for models that are 5 ’11 do not show up to a call if you are 5’4. Most importantly, do not show up to a call making an absurd fashion statement, wear something simple. Last but not least, send a simple thank you note with your comp card providing it is not a large file.
