Models Direct Guide to Female Modelling

A lot of aspiring female models want to be a model because it brings all the fame and fortune they dream of. However, it’s an extremely competitive and cut-throat business that will more likely break you than make you. Here are some cold, hard truths about becoming a model, and many survive on nothing more than a pot of noodles a night. In these times, it is important to stay focused, remember who you are not lower your standards.

Don’t do any kind of female modelling you are not fully comfortable with.


If you don’t want to do glamour work or are uncomfortable doing full nudity, speak up and don’t let people push you past those limits – a picture lasts a lifetime. It is important to bring an adult who can supervise you at all times. If you want to become fashion models when you are older you may be discriminated against for getting your clothes off, or use it as a PR stunt! Think about your career as a whole and don’t do anything to tarnish your good name.
Having the right modelling agency behind you will make or break your modelling career. Choose an established and reputable agency. If you’ve decided signing with an agency isn’t right for you, you could consider going freelance. But be warned- the pay is usually considerably less and there are fewer safety precautions. Many clients will refuse to work with an un-signed model. Get a good, up-dated modelling portfolio and get cracking on finding the right modelling agency for you.

Generally, any model has to have energy and be healthy, having clear skin, a full head of hair, and good teeth. Other qualities such as height and weight depend on what you’re female modelling, plus size female modelling does not require you to be skinny. If you don’t generally fit the criteria of a model you can try becoming a body parts model. When you turn up for a modelling shoot be professional, polite and friendly and don’t forget to focus on the job. Make sure they remember you positively.
Decide what kind of model you’d like to be. Technically, anybody can be a model. However, do remember that if you don’t meet certain requirements that big brands are attracted to, that big contract you want may not be a reality. Be persistent, learn to handle rejection and believe in yourself and you will succeed.
