Modelling is one of those jobs where people often won’t give you good advice, especially other models. When competition is high, people tend to keep their cards close to their chests. We were thinking to ourselves recently, how can people get experience that might help them to get better assignments? One idea we had was still life modelling.
Although slightly different to most people’s general idea of modelling, modelling for still life art classes can be good money for a couple of hours a week. A typical session lasts 2 hours, during which you have to stay completely still, and pays around £50. It is a myth that you have to be nude and although some classes will request this, many won’t.
Every town in the UK has some form of art group evening classes and every college has still life classes. Getting in touch with your local group might land you an evening or two’s work – and you also get to meet new people and even find a new hobby! Although Models Direct don’t offer these kind of modeling jobs, we do encourage people to think outside the box and make connections that can further their careers. Practicing in front of a mirror can only get you so far, and you won’t have the pressure of being watched so put yourself in a new position, perhaps out of your comfort zone, and get the experience you need to succeed!
