|If you are thinking of breaking into the petite modeling industry and wondering if you should spend hundreds of dollars on modeling school or classes you need to read this article. Here are few facts about modeling schools.|
==>Modeling schools will not get you jobs. Clients who are hiring petite models do not care if you have been to modeling school or not. It does not quialify your for the job.
==>Modeling schools and classes teach mostly runway modeling techniques. This type of modeling is for the fashion industry, and if you are under 5 feet 9 inches there is a next to nothing chance that you will get work as a runway model.
==>Some modeling agencies or managers offer classes to boost their earnings. This is especially common in less populated areas where models are scarce and the agency does not earn much money. Be ware of agencies that offer these classes, they are doing so for their own financial gain. A reputable agency would never ask you to pay for classes.
==>You do not have to have a modeling to model for clients. You can get all the modeling practice you need by practicing
poses in front of your mirror. A client is more interested in your looks and vibrant personality than they are in whether you've had modeling lessons or not.
Many times highschool and college students are approached by a "modleing scout" who offers them the opportunity to start their career as a model. Be ware of these people, jsut because they have a business card does not make them an agency who can get you modeling jobs. These scouts are usually paid by modeling schools on a per student basis. For each student they convince to sign up for the modeling class they are paid a commission.
To get work from a reputable agent or modeling manager you need to find someone with a business license and who has connections with real life clients that are ready to pay models for work.
Many models in this industry end up doing tv or video modeling and if you are considering this part of the industry you may need to look into acting classes.
Acting classes are considered by many directors to be valid experience and they can make a difference in your modeling portfolio. Most of us are not born actors, so acting classes may be necissary to do the job the way a client wants it done if you have a speaking part.
So while modeling classes may be a waste of your time and money, some acting classes may be necissary if you choose to pursue this type of modeling. Many petite and average models have an easier time in this industry because most of the time size is not a deciding factor. The ability to do the job well is more important.
The industry is still competative, but if you have experience modeling in non speaking background parts it makes breaking into this sector much easier.
