Loyalty- It’s A Must That I Speak On This


Models!

             Do you really want to make it in modeling big time, remember this, be loyal and workable,
My business associates know that I am loyal to them, which means for instance if I have a graphic arts person that I am working with then he or she is my 1st choice each and every time I get a graphics art project, I only use a different graphic artist if and only when I have permission from my main graphic artist to do so.

Why do I do this?

Loyalty to the business and service people I work with is key to a long lasting positive relationship, from photographers, hair and make-up people to models.

Those who are loyal and supportive get the best opportunities.

You only give the best opportunities to those who show the most support and loyalty to you and your circle period.

I’m just being fair

What Are The Expenses For Modeling?


           Expenses for modeling all depend on your goals and budget, the expenses can be many or they can be minimal; it all depends on what your focus is.

         Since there is a lot of competition and the economy is slow I would say to start off with minimal expenses, just enough to get your feet wet, just spend little amounts at a time, and if you start getting noticed and opportunities come your way then start spending more.

        I always tell the models I work with to spend as little as possible and maybe more with work starts coming but we have to know how marketable we are and if we are in demand enough to justify extra amounts to be spent.

Hopefully this helps

You Want To Throw A Fashion Show, And Want To Know How To Do It?


            Truthfully to throw a fashion show is all up to what you feel will work and what makes you happy, don’t listen to anyone else and don’t try to follow others, do what you love and don’t let it stress you.

             If you follow the major fashion designers and event people, you may go broke trying to do every little thing they do, remember these people have been doing this for a while and have a lot of experience and a lot of contacts, they have makeup artists, fashion designers, sound and light people, show coordinators, etc.

 If you are just starting out it’s best to start with smaller fashion shows, and as you grow look into more elaborate shows.

How Much Would A Model Be Paid For Images To Appear On A Website?


To be paid for your images on a website depends on a number of factors, and those being
 #1 Experience

#3 How marketable your are (Your look, Your Appeal)

            You can receive anywhere from $10.00 to $500.00 depending on what level you are.

My Ears Look Funny Can I Still Model?


              Sure you can model if your ears, neck, eyes, nose or whatever looks funny, well it may look funny to you and not everyone else unless multiple people tell you so.

             There are so many paths to take in modeling, you can be a hand model, feet model or any body part that stands out or looks fantastic.

I believe everyone has something about them that is amazing.

Never give up and never settle- go for your dream and achieve it.

How Can I Become A Model in New York?


You want to know the fastest way to become a model in New York…


             Move to New York , but be smart, try to have something lined up there so that your transition will be smooth, and when I say lined up I mean something in stone or in writing, don’t just take someone’s word that they are going to make you a big star or give you money for modeling, have it on paper and get the commitment or money upfront and know what your expenses will be for food, shelter, transportation and other model related expenses, also plan for emergencies.

            The other way to become a model in New York, is do a lot of work in your present state and get their attention, do lots of promotion, paid modeling gigs and non-paid modeling gigs, make a name for yourself, make them come running to you

How Do You Become A Model Without Getting Scammed?


            The way you become a model with-out getting scammed is to be educate yourself on the practices out here by photographers, advertisers and even us managers and promoters, another thing I advise is to have everything in writing, this is a must, there are times when I have been known not to follow this and I usually always get burnt.
           Just a simple agreement detailing how you would like the business relationship to go between you and another person is all you need.

Hopefully this helps
