Quick Tip #41

Category: Wardrobe
For: Male & Female Models

When doing a photoshoot and wearing wardrobe that has been given to you by the wardrobe stylist DO NOT RIP OFF/REMOVE THE PRICE TAGS!

Oftentimes, stylists end up returning the merchandise after the shoot since they know the outfits won't be used again so it's important that the garments go back to the store the same way they came out. If a tag is bothering you, ask permission first to see if it's okay to remove it. If not, just deal with it for the time-being. You might get lucky and work with a stylist that has a device that can reattach the tags after they've been removed...in that situation, then it's okay to take them off BUT still ask permission first! This will make the stylist's job much easier and keep you on their good side.

Hi Dania, i have a question. after you've submitted pics to an agency via email and snail mail ( i do both i want to hit them from both angles) and haven't received a response provided you've waited the right amount of time does it make sense to still go to an open call. I'm really ambitious about this so how long again should i wait until i resubmit pics or attend an open call. waiting is getting hard, i'm on MM but haven't received a response regarding castings or photo shoots. agencies don't want me right now i'm just feeling bummed. granted i have a day job so financially i'm fine but i'm miserable and very unhappy. i just want to be a model (preferably an agency signed model). I just want to make money doing something i love instead of something i have to do it's so miserable so you see i have to follow my dreams i have to make me happy. what should i do because i feel people are not giving me a chance :(

When submitting snapshots to agencies through email, should I send separate files or edit the all onto one "page"? Like the one example you gave of Doutzen Kroes? Or does it not really matter? Thank you for all of your wonderful help!
