Advice for Models (Author’s Note)

This section contains some advice and observations for amateur or beginner models interested in developing a career in modeling.

This is just my personal opinion based on my experience so far. It is not intended to apply to every model in every situation, nor do I claim to have the definitive answers. It is up to you to determine what, if anything, works for you.

Keep in mind that every photographer probably has some advice to offer. Not all of this advice is necessarily accurate nor does it apply to every situation or every style of photography. This includes the advice that follows.

So even though I am offering some advice, it is entirely up to you to determine what works best for you and to consult more than one source of information. Always get a second informed opinion from what you would consider a reliable source and fact check whenever you can.

Believe it or not, your most valuable asset is actually your brain. Use it. Common sense is great, but it’s really not that common.

Continue to learn what you need to know and also adapt what you’ve already learned to different situations. There is no one “right way”, no matter who says so.

Why models should be selective about who they shoot with.
