We’re here to tell you the skills you need, the people you need to know, and the tips and tricks you will need to make it in the industry. Buckle up honey, because you’re about to learn what it takes for you to become a model- and yes you can.

Navigating The Modeling Industry

Before jumping head first without a direction, it’s important to understand the different levels, niches, and stages to the “model matrix”. Contrary to popular belief, there are more categories of modeling that the runway models on the runway. You might find that one of these areas of the industry fits you better than another. There are a few of the main levels of the modeling industry:

• High fashion

• Editorial Print

• Commercial Print

• Catalogue Modeling

• Plus Size Modeling

• Glamour Modeling

• Body Parts Models

• Influencer Models

It’s starts with you. You may have a particular “look” that fits in one market rather than the other. Perhaps you are photogenic and curvy, which would garner a higher rate of success in plus size modeling. If you have tattoos or body modifications go for a more alternative market.
