"How to become a model
If you want to become a model, here are steps you can take to pursue this career:

1. Decide what kind of model you want to be
There are many types of models, including runway models, print models, plus-size models and hand models. There are also models who do not conform to conventional modeling standards. Given this range of options, it is important you begin your modeling career by deciding the type of modeling that best suits you.

2. Start practicing at home
You can begin practicing for a modeling career immediately. Look for videos of professional models and study the way they move and pose. Imitate and learn from these videos. You can craft your runway walk in front of a full-length mirror if you have one.

If you don't, try your local gym or dance studio. You might also pay attention to your diet and exercise, since certain types of modeling require you to be within a particular weight range and have muscle tone. Regardless of this, modeling can be a very demanding career. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will help you stay mentally and physically well.

3. Build your photograph portfolio
Start with photographs taken by your friends. Have them take full body and head shots of you wearing simple makeup against a plain background. This helps an agent or client determine if you are the kind of model they are looking for. Look for start-up photographers who might take pictures of you in exchange for permission to use your pictures in their advertising.

You will eventually need to invest in a photographer to take professional shots. Make sure you have a good range of pictures in your portfolio showing you in several different poses and locations. This shows you to be versatile and able to work with a variety of situations.

4. Look for an agent
You can try getting clients on your own, but most clients prefer working through a modeling agency, so you should try to find an agent. When you visit an agency, take your portfolio and be prepared to audition. You should also know your body statistics, including height, weight, eye color and shoe size.

While it is preferable to present professional pictures to an agency, your non-professional pictures may be enough. If the agency likes what they see, they will normally pay for you to visit a professional photographer. Make sure you research an agency to verify they are legitimate before you sign a contract.

5. Take relevant classes
There are modeling schools that teach about the industry, including how to perform at a photo shoot and how to maintain good health and nutrition. However, you do not need to attend modeling school to become a model. If you want to take classes to help improve your modeling skills, consider acting or dance classes.

Acting classes might help you in a photo shoot where you have to convey a mood or character. Dance classes can help you develop poise and good posture.

6. Look for opportunities to be noticed
You need to be fearless about self-promotion to succeed as a model. Always look for opportunities to model that could get you noticed by potential clients. You could, for example, volunteer at a local fashion show or look for retail outlets that need models to demonstrate products.

Perhaps there are local hair stylists or makeup artists who need models to practice on. Be sure to treat each engagement as a professional job, and make sure there is someone there to take pictures of you for your portfolio.

7. Use social media
The internet is a great way to promote yourself, since you can post photographs and videos that potentially thousands of people will see. Through social media, you can build followers and develop a platform. This could interest possible clients who might want your followers to see you wearing their products. If you don't already have a professional social media presence, start to build one. Focus particularly on those platforms that emphasize pictures and video."
