Quick Tip #21

Category: Castings
For: Male & Female Models (Freelance)

When submitting yourself to castings for certain clients, make sure you're not wearing the competition in your images (this does not apply to sending headshots since they are closeups).

For example, if you're interested in modeling for a particular clothing company, don't send them full body shots wearing a highly recognizable brand that is their competitor. To avoid rubbing a client the wrong way from the beginning, it's best to send in pictures with you wearing clothing free of logos, brand names and other distracting symbols.

The exception to this would be if you're submitting yourself for a jewelry/accessories company and they require you to send in images of you wearing jewelry. In such situations, it's okay to wear what you already own in order to give the client an idea of what you look like modeling this type of accessory/product.

I am 14, 5'9 120 lbs. and have the right measurments. Could I make it as a model? Different people have told me that I should be a model. Am I too short, or do I weigh too much?
