Choose your niche

Choosing the right niche of modelling is an important criterion for aspirants who want to take it up seriously. The primary markets here are for the following types of models:

  • Fashion models
  • Runway models
  • Glamour models
  • Fitness models
  • Swimsuit models
  • Body-parts models

What kind of market you choose depends on what kind of model aspirations you have along with your suitability and comfort level. Fashion models for example will need to flaunt a height of 5’8” at least with a reed-thin body and zero curves. Swimsuit and Glamour models on the other hand need to be endowed with curves and luscious attractiveness. Body part models again need not restrict themselves to any body size. They rather need to have the body part to be captured in the limelight in especially good condition.

Your modeling portfolio should consist only of great photos. You only get one chance to make a good first impression as a model

Your portfolio is vitally important a component in this profession. So you must take special care in getting it built from pros on the job. Your employer can judge how you will look in professional photography only from here and if it’s not good enough, your chances score low.
