Do you have what it takes to become a model?

Are you clued up on the requirements, specifications and demands of the industry?

Look no further, our guide to modelling is just what you need

Watch the demo video below to see the steps it takes to become a model, if you have any questions or would like to speak to one of our portfolio consultants please fill the form in and we will be in touch soon.

How to become a model?

There has never been a better time to become a model. Since the growth of the internet, online shopping, and advertising, Commercial models have become more and more in demand. However, it has probably also never been more frustrating for an aspiring model to know how to get started or who to trust as the industry has all moved online. This is why our services have never been more in demand.

If you register today, then our team will assess your application, and you will be contacted by one of our new faces team within three working days if they believe you could benefit from our support.

Is modelling for you?
It’s harder than it looks.

The first thing you need to do is find out whether you have what it takes to model and then to start approaching agencies with evidence to prove you have the right credentials.

The best way to approach modelling agencies is with a portfolio as there is no better way to demonstrate the potential you have. There is no easy way of becoming a fashion model, as very few candidates will meet the expectation of potential modelling agents, but there are a lot of tips and tried and tested methods that UK Models can help you with.

Becoming a female model is not just about having the right look and style, there are many more requirements if you truly want to succeed in this industry.

Do you have a professional portfolio?

First impressions mean everything and if you haven’t gone to the effort of working with a photographer and stylist to create a portfolio, then you haven’t yet found out if modelling is for you. Your portfolio needs to stand out from the rest and quality means everything, you want to show how versatile a model you are and that you have a distinct and individual look and style.

Remember trying to model without a portfolio is like trying to find a job without a CV. It’s all about being proactive as a model and showing potential agencies that you have the drive and determination to succeed. If you don’t already have a portfolio then this maybe something we can help you to create and build if we believe you show model potential.

Do I need to pay for a portfolio?

Typically the larger agencies will set-up a free test shoot for you, but may recuperate the money from your first bookings. This is a standard procedure, however you wouldn’t be able to use those images to promote yourself and other agencies wouldn’t be able to use them.  There are also photographers out there who are willing to shoot for free, they are usually photographers who are starting out and building their portfolio. The issue with some of these shoots is that you often don’t get the shots that are not right for booking you work, can’t control what they are sued for and occasionally don’t even get to see them.

You do not need to spend thousands of pounds on a portfolio shoot but it is completely acceptable for photographers to charge for their services and is up to you if you are prepared to pay for their work. The benefit of owning your own set of images is simple, you can use them for whatever you want, allow multiple agencies to use them and also self-promote yourself on the numerous online modelling platforms. Having some great images, some plain and simple and others a little more contrived can only help you in getting noticed especially for models who don’t live in a city centre like London littered with agencies and opportunities.

How to create a professional portfolio

A model portfolio is a collection of professional images which need to show a variety of looks and genres and show-off your versatility and personality. At Model Portfolio UK we can help you create a professional model portfolio tailored to your personal needs to give you an edge over your rivals and most importantly get you noticed.
