How to prepare for a modelling job
What to do and not to do


 

So you have a photo shoot booked, yay! But how do you know you are prepared for it?? What to do?? What to bring? How to dress? So many questions! Well, first of all breathe, you booked a shoot, so well done!! And we will tell you how to prep for it!

First of all, make sure you know the concept of the shoot from the moodboards the client or your agent sent you, so you know the creative direction and can start practicing various poses, so you come to set prepared. Second of all, prepare your self. Together with our lead fashion photographer and editorial trainer Persia Martel Cruz, we have compiled lists of what to do and what not to do when going to a modelling job.

Make sure your hair is clean and dry, your face has no products on, always be waxed or shaved, exfoliate the night before, moisturise your face and body in the morning, whiten teeth, make sure your lips are not dry or cracked. And of course bring your model bag! What’s in a model bag?? It usually consists of – skin care products, makeup products, hair styling products, clothing, shoes and accessories. Want more details?
