Modeling is not just posing in front of a camera, or walking the catwalk, there is so much to know and learn! Knowing your sense of style and what traits help you stand out, your ability to be professional and ready at all times, facial expressions, projection
Even the best models get training
The famous model Gigi Hadid, had been getting made fun of her walk, and this is after her being in many catwalks. What did she do? She made sure she did a workshop with Naomi Campbell, who gave her a runway lesson and helped with her confidence right before her Victoria Secret fashion show. Also, Gigi’s mom was a super model back in the day, so of course Gigi knows the industry, yet still needed more training to fit today’s industry standards. Even on America’s Next Top Model, there are many catwalk coaches, posing instructors, and all the exercise that are given to this models, who always one of them become big in the industry having all this knowledge thanks to all their instructors throughout the show and of course Tyra Banks.
This only tells you how training is really necessary at any level in your modeling career. A photographer will always be happy when he directs you do a certain pose and you get it right the first time. No photographer wants to sit there having to pose you in every shot. He will direct you, but he won’t be your posing instructor. This is why it’s important you know your poses and facial expressions and how to take direction well.
If he asks you to look sad, he will expect to get an honest sad expression, if he asks you to stretch or reach and you know exactly how your body works and what it can do, he will definitely want to work with you again. It’s good for a model to know their body and proper training helps them become better at posing and expressing themselves in front of the camera.
Showcase Yourself in the Best Light!
Another thing that is important for models to get more training in is how to market yourself and know what traits or style are going to help you stand out in the modeling industry. How good are you at looking good at all times? This isn’t just about how well you can dress; this is also knowing how to eat right and having a good diet in place, knowing how to stay in shape, and how to take care of your skin and have a proper skin regimen.
We need to make sure when in this industry, that we are taking care of ourselves and looking good at all times. You must always be prepared for any casting or event that may pop up on a short notice. Also, you never know who you might run into walking the streets or at events and you want to make sure you are always looking like a model. What about style? It is important to know what looks good on your body type and have a signature style to help you stand out and that targets the niche market in modeling you want to pursue. How to market yourself in the industry is just as important.

Even When It Comes To Your Model Materials
I saved the best for last, your model PORTFOLIO! Having a good portfolio is huge! Knowing what images you need and are good for your portfolio can be difficult to know when you are just getting started. The quality of every image that you have in your model portfolio is very important, and knowing what looks will be good to have in your book is just as important. When it comes to your model portfolio, you are as good as your worse image, so make sure to only showcase the best! No agent is going to take you seriously when you show them a poorly made portfolio. Not only that, but also comp cards, head shots and all your model materials that are needed to become a professional model should be of great quality. If you want to compete at a top level, everything you have and how you present yourself must be seen as professional.
