THE IT FACTOR PRODUCTIONS’ NICOLE C AND MIA C WERE NOTICED AT NYC FASHION WEEK
Professionalism is truly key to obtaining opportunities as a model. Ryan Colby at The It Factor Productions just received a wonderful letter from the Director of Starbaby Enterprises. Here it is:
Dear Alycia and Reach Management,
We recently had a fashion show during fashion week and worked with a lot of models from your agency. We were very impressed by their professionalism and would like to work with two of your models for an upcoming impromptu photoshoot we are doing this weekend for Janique inSeventeen magazine – Prom.
We are interested in hiring both Nicole C and Mia for the photoshoot…
Everyone at REACH and The It Factor Productions is so excited for Mia and Nicole and can wait to see the outcome of their modeling job for Seventeen Magazine Prom Edition. Possibly one of them will make the cover! At REACH we always remind our models that modeling is so much more than looks. Here are some tips on professionalism as a modeling that may help you score that next big job.
THE IT FACTOR PRODUCTIONS’ TOP TIPS ON PROFESSIONALISM FOR MODELING JOBS
Leave 30 minutes early for every casting, audition, or booking appointment, meaning add 30 minutes to your expected travel time. This will most likely get you there early; you can use the time to prepare yourself. If you run into delays on your route, hopefully the extra travel time will be sufficient to keep you on time for your modeling job.
Organize your life. Make sure you always know where your modeling portfolio and comp cards are and other necessary items needed for your casting or audition, so you are not scrambling for misplaced items moments before leaving for the photoshoot or audition. Keep a datebook calendar handy, and use smartphone apps with push notifications, so you are forced to view your appointments.
Keep an “audition survival bag.” This could be a knapsack, purse, or briefcase. Here is a list of suggested items to keep in your bag: headshots and résumés, business cards, a MetroCard, paper and a pen, makeup, a hairbrush, bottled water, breath mints, and an energy bar, and hide $10 or $20 inside just in case. This way you only have to remember your keys and cell phone; just grab your audition bag, and go.
