So you want to be a model or actor? You put on your makeup and a great new outfit and you're now ready to attend some modeling agency open calls or a go-sees, audition or casting call. In addition to looking great it's important to follow some simple guidelines to help you ace your interview! Check these out for some great tips on how to be successful in the biz!
BE ON TIME:
Being on time is a MUST! Being late for your interview (or modeling jobs) is the kiss of death for a model. Time is money and lateness is never tolerated by agents, photographers or clients. Plan your time wisely and make sure you show up for your appointment time at least 10 minutes early (no earlier). If you find yourself arriving too early wait outside or in the lobby until it's time for you to be there. With the advent of cell phones, GPS and Google Maps there is no excuse for a model not to know exactly where he/she needs to be and to be there on time.
BRING UP-TO-DATE PHOTOS:
Whether you submitted your photos to the agency beforehand or the agents are seeing your photos for the first time, you must look like you do in your photos. It is ok if you don't have professional photos, snapshots are just fine. Agents would rather see you in simple snapshots than in professional photos that are old, out-dated or where you look totally different.
