The growing phenomenon of teenage modeling

Most of the brands feel that youngsters are able to relate better with their target audience and hence, teenage modeling is on a rise. Social media is yet another reason for the popularity. The augmentation of various products and services in the online sector has made it difficult for top brands to hire models of repute and hence, they are choosing young aspirants who are talented and have the attributes to make it big.

How to go about your choice?

Once you decide to become a model, there are a few things that you will need to comprehend. First and foremost is to hone your skills so as to make an impression on modeling agencies. It is difficult to get noticed amongst the lot and you will need to prepare yourself in order to stand above the rest.

You can find the relevant information on the internet and according to your convenience, can take the help of one of them.

You will also need to understand the camera and how to look good in pictures. The lighting, angles, etc. have to be studied so that they work in your favor. Being photogenic is important, however, it is more to do with the right attitude in front of the camera. These tricks can also be learnt from expert photographers.

Building the right kind of portfolio is also another major step. You can always look for tips in order to create the best portfolio. It is ideal to have a look at a few of them so as to get an idea of how it should appear.
It is a fact that if you start early, you will achieve success faster as you can adapt to the requirements of the profession at the right time. The money involved in this industry is also another major attraction which comes along with the fame. A lot of parents encourage their children to take up modeling because of the many advantages. Having said this, it is also true that the journey is not a piece of cake. You will have to work very hard in order to attain success and once you gain a reputation, there is no looking back

For my stances, I guess we should have models by levels, i mean mothers, teenages and such. that way we can always see how those brands would look like when we buy them.

i would never make a model, i remember when I was fresh out from college and was trying a dress in one of the boutiques in the mall, I was asked by the designer to come observe modeling if I am interested and I may want to join. I did come and observe, but after seeing what is going on behind the scenes, I realized it is too much work and never for me. I love the corporate world much better, and later, the academe :) but yes, I admire them for the hardwork they do, it's not easy at all.

Perhaps, this is the trend for today. But I do know of a Triond friend, who is a model. She is 35 years old and she told me the modeling company where she is employed are currently looking for 'adult' models.

capitalism purports this industry sis, modeling, beauty pageantry, hollywood sustains a multibillion dollar beauty industry. Sadly it set precedent standards among the young ones, which often of negative connotation.

If you have all that it takes to be a model, why not? It has got a lot of wonderful perks.

cheerful said...

will I pass as one, hahaha, joke lang!? I bet its hard work, too. anyway, the short-time perks of being a model somehow encourage some to go into this career. but i will definitely admire those young models who are studying at the same time...:)
