Most models have an online profile and most of the ones I’ve talked to are not happy with the amount of work they are getting from it. I’ve jotted down a few simple steps to make your profile into a job-generating machine.
- Write down (just for yourself) what your best feature is. Don’t write more than one thing down. Make sure your main photo shows this feature! If it’s your face, use a headshot. If it’s your legs, make it a full-length shot with bare legs (don’t just do a crop shot of your legs, that looks creepy.) If your main photo doesn’t have your best feature then you’ve missed the point!
- Now, make sure all your features are represented. At least one photo (hopefully more) needs to show your face. The face shots need to be clear! You need a photo where you abs can be seen, one showing your legs, one showing your arms, and so on. Got one with your rear end in it? You won’t get hired if it’s a mystery as to what you look like!
- Are all your photos by the same photographer? Mix it up. Are they all in the same outfit? Get real! Variety. I’ve spelled it out for you. If you don’t have variety, then it will look like nobody has worked with you.
- You need to update often. Show that you are a working model. If possible, do a shoot every week and upload a photo!
