TIPS for Aspiring Models........things you need to put in consideration

 Modeling is not as easy and as glamorous as one would think,who said the job also involves a lot of sacrificeShow up on time, fulfill your obligations under your contract, and try your best to get along with everyone.

one must be able to deal with a lot of rejection – sometimes even three times in a day. 
What more for beginners, who have yet to establish a large network of reliable contacts.

“I don’t think there’s any job in the world where you can get more rejection than modeling,”Today, you didn’t get it. Tomorrow, you don’t get it again. For three times a day, they’ll tell you that you didn’t get it. You have to be tough.”

In other words, modeling is not as stable as a desk job.
But there are lots of perks, too, from access to exclusive parties to freebies and, of course, the pay.
“You also meet the right people who can guide you and introduce you to a new career, to tell you how it’s done.
The experience itself is a rollercoaster ride.”
This is what it takes to become a successful professional model.

1. Be professional
You can be shy and have a different personality in real life, but once you are in front of the camera,you have to be the person that your client wants you to be.

2. Toughen up

In the industry, you will meet a lot of people who will tell you that you are not good enough – that you are too fat or too thin, too tall or too small.
Don’t let these criticisms get to you. Instead, use them to enhance both your appearance and personality.
3. Take care of yourself
Always be in tip-top shape especially during the summer, when most projects are available. Work out, have a proper diet, and don’t party too much.
It’s okay to loosen up a bit during the rainy season, but always be ready to get back to work.
When it comes to diet, this basic rule applies: Control what you’re eating, but don’t starve yourself. If possible, stay away from soft drinks and junk food.
4. Know more about fashion
Being a model is not just about using clothes someone asks you to wear. Try to know as much as you can about fashion and beauty trends yourself as these will come in handy when applying for a new project.
This is particularly important for television commercials, where models are screened based on how they look upon arriving at the set.
Get to know the brand you are about to endorse, the designers and makeup artists, and all the other people you will be working with.
5. Have a Plan B
Modeling is not a stable job, so you should always have alternatives. While waiting for a call for a project, get another job, start a business or go back to school to keep yourself busy.
These accomplishments may boost your chances of getting that next big break.

Have a wonderful week ahead.
