there’s no such thing as a fashionably late entrance!

Posted by freshagents on May 18, 2007

never be late!!! It easy to become lax about time keeping in this industry as it is often hectic, over running and subject to huge shooting delays… but let that be down to the production team not you!

It’s a fast moving, stressful industry, don’t add to it by being late, an awful lot of time, organisation and cash goes into making things happen and if your not there on time, this can have a huge impact on the product, our relationship with our client and your future career!

Poor time keeping reflects badly not only on you, but also on us, so do us all a favor and get there on time!

hair today…. gone tomorrow

This one is so simple yet so may models forget it… or don’t even think about it!

If you change your hair style, tell your agent!!! It’s really important to let us know what you are currently looking like, if you have a drastic style change, you’ll need to get some updated images in your portfolio, otherwise clients will not know what they are getting!

pluck polish and trim….

It’s really important for men and women to make sure that they keep their nails, hair and skin in good condition…

A lot of the time clients will want to shoot with hands in shot, so bitten, tired looking hands and nails are a no go…

You should always keep your skin a good natural colour, or at least as close to the colour in the images in your portfolio or zcard… it’s really important to tell your agent if you are looking different so they can warn a client, it may make a huge difference to what they are shooting.

It’s hard work we know, but these are the tools of your trade so you need to look after them!

smile smile smile :)

It’s always amazed me how many people think that they have to have a moody pout when submitting photo’s to us!

We can’t tell people enough that a nice smile is so important for lifestyle commercial modeling…. if for no other reason than to check that you have decent teeth!!!

So always remember to have at least one picture taken of you smiling, we need to see teeth!
