I have seen many youngsters aspire to become a model blinded by the glamor and fame associated with the industry. Another effect is when people around you think you're good-looking and are destined to be a model or movie star. These are the wrong reasons to choose any career You must have some perspective about what you want to do.
If you feel that you have a flair for modeling, start by setting some short-term goals and work towards achieving them. The goal could be to walk the ramp for a local pageant show, participate in a magazine photo shoot, or be part of an advertisement.
But, how do you go about a career without any experience? Find a way to be part of the ecosystem. If you're still studying, opt for part-time jobs with event companies that hold fashion shows, audition for commercials, or attend fashion-related events where you'll see models at work.
It doesn't matter whether you play a role in the process or not, focus on getting closer to what you want to do. The same applies if you are currently working. Please don't quit your job and start modeling full time as a beginner. Find ways to work in the industry and take a deeper look at everything.
You will realize that a model works with a lot of people - designers, makeup artists, stylists, photographers, casting directors, production teams and many more. It is important to have good people skills and maintain a professional rapport with the team on set. Catch up on what happens before a show/photoshoot and how a model prepares for a project.
If you get the chance, interact with the models and understand how they approach their work. By now, you will be more clear about modeling and you are ready to start your modeling career.
