If you love being in front of the camera, modeling may be a good career for you. But, how do you become a top model? 1. Determine what type of modeling you want to do. There are more than ten types of modeling. So, before you actively look for modeling jobs, you have to determine what type of modeling you want to do. Do you want to do fashion modeling? Do you want to be a ramp model or you simply want to be a print model? Do you want to be a leg or hand model? Do you want to appear in music videos? If you have stage fright, then you have to avoid ramp modeling and go for print modeling instead. You also need to determine how far you would go for a modeling job. Are you willing to pose nude? Are you willing to stand near wild animals or jump from a cliff? It’s important to know your limits so you won’t be pushed to do things you do not want to do. 2. Take care of your body and appearance. Models are mainly hired for their physical appearance. So, you have to take care of your body and your face. You must have a regular beauty and fitness regimen. You should also watch your weight. 3. Get a good agent. If you want to be a successful model, you have to get a good agent. To do this, invest in a few professional glamor shots. You can also turn your Instagram page into a modeling portfolio. A lot of scouts have been checking Instagram feeds on a daily basis to look for potential supermodels. You can also apply to modeling agencies. Prepare a cover letter that includes your vital statistics like dress size, height, shoe size, and measurements. You should also indicate your past modeling experience (if you have any). You should also attach your resume and your glamor shots. 4. Make sure that you know a lot about the modeling and fashion industry. Do your research and make sure that you know a lot about the fashion and modeling industry. Also, practice different poses in front of the mirror and practice your signature ramp walk. You must also know your angles. 5. Develop your personality. Gone are the days when models are scouted solely for their looks. A lot of agencies are now looking for models with colorful personalities. You must be polite at all times and you must be willing to follow directions. Being a model is not just about wearing beautiful clothes and walking down the runway. It is not just about having an angular face or a good bone structure. You must also be hardworking and you must have a strong determination.
