A model’s biggest mistake is not being prepared. Models who are just beginning out may go to a booking after a night of partying and not realize how demanding a photoshoot is.

Some forget to bring their portfolio or leave their model kit at their home. Others don’t even bother researching the agency or client for which they are shooting. Worst, they don’t know what to do when they are in front of the camera. This can make you appear unprofessional and unmotivated, which can lead to unbookability.

It is important to make an effort to get a good nights sleep and double-check that you have everything you need. You should also do your research by immersing yourself into the modeling world and learning from experienced models.

Magazines can be your guide

Spending time with your favorite fashion magazines is the best way to learn how to model. You can study the models as you browse these fashion bible magazines. Pay attention to how they move. Practice their poses and you will be able to imitate their expressions.

Note the names of the models and learn more about photographers and designers. Take out the best shots and use them as a practice page. Keep practicing until you have perfected the mood and the expression. You’ll soon have the confidence to look effortless in front of the camera.

Avoid magazines claiming to be fashion, as they are stuffed with celebrities. While they are interesting to read, if you want to make your research worth it, only stick with high-quality fashion magazines that feature real models. It is rare that you need to be introduced to models to find the best fashion magazines.
