Are you seeking to become a fashion model while eyeing the supermodels like dusky damsel girl Nidhi Sunil; a famous supermodel who is regularly seen on the cover pages of fashion magazines like Vogue and Elle? You also must be following Sony Kaur, Urvashi or Archana Akil Kumar. These all beauties have a body like an art canvas gracing the stages with their dynamic appeal, and sexy looks.
However, you must remember that modelling is not easy as it seems. There are many things to do to cut through the competition and get into the limelight. You require dedicated effort, a disciplinary approach, with proper planning and strategy to stand out and get noticed.
Let us discuss some tips on how to achieve your goal or become a professional fashion model.
Develop modelling skills
Try out different poses, and practice runway walking. What differentiates you from other models is their ability to pose and walk. You might feel awkward adapting to a style and walking on a runway at first, but with practice, you can make a difference. Have a friend shoot photos to feel comfortable, both in front of the camera and another, or you start small, keep a camera on a tripod and practise it yourself till you have gained confidence.
The poses are not easy to master, there are so many rides about expressing yourself, perfect lighting, angle, makeup and hair. Especially in beauty photography success is all about working on minor details. And one you have felt that you are in a position to shoot to take the poses to the next level, you can start trying new things like new expressions or laughter. You can have more vivid, interesting poses with much more contortion and great difficulty.
Create a killer modelling portfolio
Create a modelling portfolio, a first step to reaching the eyes of the modelling agencies who are always seeking models. This presents your strong point through high-quality and stunning images. You can have an online version that you can post on the online platforms or send via email and a printed version that you can show to anyone. Get the best pictures of yours in different poses from different professional photographers.

Even if you have the prettiest face or are a handsome guy in the class does not make you a model. Reach out to the experts in the modelling industry or people who have a modelling taste like you, and seek their opinion. Their evaluation will help you to know where you are lacking and what you need to take up modelling care. It will also help you decide which modelling field you will take up, like in TV advertisements, online media, magazines, calendars and many others.
Try to get as much exposure
There are several ways you can seek exposure. Send out your portfolio to the leading modelling agencies, but the method is costly and time-consuming. You can also attend a modelling convention, an excellent way to reach out to the agencies and land the job. You can also learn about the acting industry. Now online platforms like Dazzlerr are also an easy way to post your portfolio and get into the eyes of modelling agencies and other companies who are always looking for fresh faces faster.
Seek work opportunities in the online media
The presence of the internet and social media has also increased the scope of modelling and given a chance to fresh faces. Now there are much shorter girls who can earn a lot of money. Short-height girls have always been beautiful and are much in demand in e-commerce, and among retailers. Also, there is a lot of work for models in the e-commerce shopping segment.
You know once you have aced yourself in modelling, you can also step into Bollywood. Many famous models have also succeeded as actors in movies. A list of celebrities is Mouni Roy, Jhanvi Kapoor, Ishaan Khattar, Sara Ali Khan, Aayush Sharma, Karan Deol, and others.
How to become a model is how you adopt this profession and the passion you have for it. Keeping yourself well groomed and adopting a healthy lifestyle is a mantra to set yourself a mark in modelling. Once you have entered into modelling, you can meet many talented and amazing people and get the opportunity to travel all around the world.
