You’ve been in the modeling line for some time now. You did a few shoots, stand in some events but still it’s hard to get bookings for yourself. Are you that ugly? No, you’re even prettier than some full-booking-models. You don’t reach requirements? No, you’re tall, you can pose for pictures well, you can even catwalk. Why isn’t anyone calling you?
One more small aspect you have to look at being a model, other than your looks and your skills to catwalk; it’s your ATTITUDE. “Attitude? What do you mean?” you asked. Well, here are some reason a booker (like me) won’t even bother calling you.
1) Being a pain-in-the-a$$ Diva
Bear in mind, you’re a model who’s working not a princess or prince or queen. So, being very very very demanding will not only annoy us but all kind of pissed us off. Yes, we are oblige to take care of ALL your needs during the shoot but, we will throw away your number and profile right after the shoot. There are many other models out there who are evenly skilled and easier to work with
2) Being irresponsible
Being VEEERY late for a shoot, or sometimes not appearing for a shoot, is ok BUT if we are informed earlier? If you can’t go, or not sure if you can go, do not promise that you will. If you know you can’t make it, INFORM, so you save everyone’s time and energy plus give us some time to look for other replacements.
3) There’s no discipline
It’s almost the same as 2), and what I mean by this is the passion in you to be one. You don’t open more doors to learn from mistakes. You take critics negatively and personally. Are you serious about being a supermodel or are you just wanting to be one for the sake of being one for the name?
Modeling is not just about looks. It’s about the attitude of a person and the character you want people to feel together with the fashion you’re selling. I hope I encounter lesser model wannabes with very very serious attitude problem.
PS: Ever wonder why some supermodels are just normal looking but they are way beyond your league? Even if you and everyone around you feels that you have better look?
