How To Get Started In Modeling For Teenagers – Health First
Being a professional fashion model means taking care of your body which includes a healthy diet, lifestyle, and proper sleep (at least 8 hours of a good night sleep since this is the time when your cells regenerate so that you can look more beautiful and pretty). Don’t depend on Photoshop to “fix” you. Photographers and fashion clients still want to see a girl who has beautiful hair and a glowing skin complexion.

How To Get Started In Modeling For Teens And Teenage Girls – A Beautiful Personality
Fashion clients need to enjoy working with you and doing photo shoots with you. Attitude and personal problems must be left at the door. Having a professional work ethic is needed to succeed in the fashion modeling industry and become a successful fashion model. A lot of work as a model will come from repeat bookings and regular clients. Your main objective should be to leave a photo shoot with everyone wanting to work with you again. In the fashion modeling industry business, it doesn’t take long for word of mouth to make or break your fashion modeling career. A beautiful personality is extremely important if you are also the face of a brand and do model interviews (press interviews) representing specific fashion brands as the following fashion model interviews and press event illustrates.

How To Get Started In Modeling – Confidence, Persistence, And Determination Are Extremely Important For Becoming A Successful Fashion Model
Allow yourself to open up and be yourself in front of the camera. Fashion photographers love to work with models that are confident in themselves and not self conscious about their looks, appearance, and/or their posing skills for the photo shoot. Being confident, having the ability to move freely and correctly, and giving a range of expressions is key to getting that perfect beautiful shot. It is also very important to not take anything personally, specially rejections. Fashion models that generally succeed are able to handle continuous rejection from fashion clients. There are a number of top models and supermodels who heard plenty of no’s before they developed an incredibly successful fashion modeling career.

How To Get Started In Modeling For Women And Teenagers – A Beautiful Fashion Model Personality Matched With The Perfect Modeling Agency
Having the right look, height, and body size as a fashion model will definitely get the attention of a modeling agent at a top modeling agency, but also having a beautiful personality can help you in that final step which is actually getting signed by a top modeling agency (getting the initial model interview with a top fashion modeling agency will not help you much if you can’t seal the deal and get signed by a top modeling agency). Don’t underestimate how important personality plays in getting signed by a modeling agency and in becoming a top model.

How To Get Started In Modeling And How To Get A Modeling Agent – Choose A Market And Location
In fashion modeling there are various different markets and selecting the one that you are most suitable for will have a major effect on your success as a fashion model. Location is extremely important in modeling, and if you are not in the right city and country and you are not willing to move you probably will not make it as a successful fashion model simply because there simply will not be enough modeling work for you. Major fashion markets in the United States include Los Angeles for models located in the Western United States and New York for models located in the Eastern United States in addition to London, Paris, and Milan in Italy.
Take a look at our fascinating stories about the “Money Girls – The Highest Paid Models In The World” and you will see that at some point in their modeling careers these top models eventually moved to either New York, London, Paris, or Milan (the fashion capitals of the world). However, it is important to note that selecting the right market for you is the job of your modeling agent and your modeling agency since top modeling agencies will generally know what will work best for you based on your particular look.

How To Get Started In Modeling For Teens And Teenage Girls – Money Is Not Required
This is the area that causes the most confusion with potential new models in the fashion modeling industry. Top modeling agencies will either pay for all of your portfolio development expenses such as photo shoots for developing your book (your modeling portfolio) or they will advance you the expenses which basically means that they will subtract what you owe them from your future modeling paychecks once you start modeling with your modeling agency. The third scenario (and this is where you can distinguish the top modeling agencies from the rest) is when a modeling agency asks you to pay for everything upfront that relates to developing your modeling portfolio.
As of the date of this writing and for over a decade ZARZAR MODELS has never required money from models for photo shoots or in order to sign them with the agency and instead earns a percentage of the earnings generated by the model. You do not need to hire expensive photographers in order to apply to our modeling agency and be considered as a potential ZARZAR MODEL (simple well taken Polaroids by a relative or friend will be sufficient). If a modeling agency is truly interested in signing you and really believes in you they will invest in you.

How To Get Started In Modeling For Teenagers – Types Of Modeling Jobs
Another important thing to consider when starting a modeling career is that there are several types of modeling areas that you can pursue as a fashion model. For example, ZARZAR MODELING AGENCY also known around the world as ZARZAR MODELS has 4 major divisions which include “Editorial & Print”, “Runway”, “Film & Television”, and a 4th division which represents fashion models that are the faces of major brands at press events, etc. which is why a beautiful personality is extremely important. Selecting what division you will be best at in modeling is also the job of your modeling agent and modeling agency after talking with you and discussing your modeling goals, etc.

How To Get Started In Acting – Do I Need An Acting Agent (Talent Agent) To Become An Actress? How To Become An Actress And What Is SAG-AFTRA? Why You Need An Acting Agent (Talent Agent) To Become A Successful And Famous Actress

Many models at some point in their modeling careers consider the option of acting for major motion pictures, television shows, and television commercials with speaking roles. Many models are able to get started in acting with no problems while other models do not do as well in their acting careers and constantly struggle to get major acting roles or even secondary acting roles. Becoming an actress is not extremely difficult, but becoming a very successful and famous actress is something completely different that requires acting training, education about the acting industry, discipline, personality, very well developed acting skills, charisma, networking, passion, and most importantly having the right acting agent (talent agent) to help you to become as successful as possible in your acting career.

How To Get Started In Acting And How To Get An Acting Agent (Talent Agent) To Become An Actress
The business of acting covers many different things such as unions, acting auditions, acting casting calls, acting contracts, and of course acting agents (talent agents). While many will not agree with this, specially because there are always exceptions, it is safe to say that in general (again, there are always exceptions) having an acting agent and an acting agency (a talent agency) is the first step in distinguishing amateur and sometimes professional actresses from highly successful and famous professional actresses. For example, if you live in Los Angeles it will be extremely difficult to get principal leading roles in major motion pictures and movies without an acting agent (talent agent) representing you. You might be the most talented actress in the entire world but it will be extremely difficult for you to get major acting roles if no one in the acting industry knows who you are and what amazing things you can do as an actress.
Promoting an actress (in this case you) is the job of an acting agent and the acting agency which represents actresses (in this case you being one of the actresses). An acting agency (talent agency) could have dozens or even hundreds of acting agents, talent agents, and/or employees (this is common for the largest acting agencies and/or talent agencies in Los Angeles Southern California) with the objective of getting their actresses as much acting work around the world as possible. Try to find a successful and famous actress that is currently acting in major motion pictures and movies and does not have acting representation from a major acting and talent agency. While certainly possible, it is indeed rare.

What Kind Of Agent Do I Need?
Now that we have explained why you need an acting agent (talent agent) it is important to explore the different types of agents that are available to represent actresses. Commercial agents handle television commercials, voice-over agents handle radio and off-camera work, theatrical agents handle movies, television shows, stage, and theatre. There are also other types of talent agents such as modeling agents (think ZARZAR MODELS), as well as talent agents that focus on professional sport athletes, musicians, authors and writers, film directors, producers, broadcast journalists, and other members of the entertainment industry. Even within each major area you can find different specialties such as fashion runway, commercial print, editorial print, fashion print, etc. for modeling agents and modeling agencies (all these areas of modeling are covered by our modeling agency). Typically, the larger the agency the more specialized the agents.
For actors and actresses, theatrical and commercial is where most of the acting work is so from a business perspective you probably want to make sure that you are represented by an acting agency (talent agency) that handles acting work in these areas. Acting agents are also franchised or not franchised. A franchised agent is one who is licensed to represent union performers. Union pay is sometimes much better than non-union pay, and you will get benefits that non-union actors might not get, which brings us to one of the most common questions that beginning actresses ask and that is “what in the world is SAG-AFTRA and why should I care?” which is the subject of our next section.

How To Become An Actress And What Is SAG-AFTRA?
One of the first things that confuses beginning actresses and beginning actors is SAG-AFTRA, specially when a beginning actress is asked for the very first time if she is a member of the union or a member of SAG-AFTRA (a beginning actress will generally be asked this question during her first acting role either as a principal actress, a supporting actress, or a background actress which is known as an extra). Her first response is usually a blank stare followed by “what union” or “SAG-AFTRA what?” followed by a very confused look which even an actress can generally not fake. The union that most actresses and actors generally refer to in the United States is called SAG-AFTRA. Better known by the general public as the Screen Actors Guild or SAG for short it was an American labor union representing over 105,000 film and television actresses, actors, principals, and background performers (known as extras) worldwide. On March 30, 2012 the SAG union leadership announced that the SAG membership voted to merge with the American Federation Of Television And Radio Artists known as AFTRA to create SAG-AFTRA.
SAG-AFTRA For Actresses And Actors – Should I Join SAG-AFTRA? Is SAG-AFTRA Right For Me As A Beginning Actress?
Today SAG-AFTRA represents more than 165,000 actresses, actors, announcers, broadcast journalists, dancers, DJs, news writers, news editors, program hosts, puppeteers, recording artists, singers, stunt performers, voiceover artists, and other media professionals. SAG-AFTRA members are the faces and voices that entertain and inform America and the world. With national offices in Los Angeles and New York, and local offices nationwide, SAG-AFTRA members work together to secure the strongest protections for media artists into the 21st century and beyond.
SAG-AFTRA brings together two great American labor unions: the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation Of Television And Radio Artists. Both were formed in the turmoil of the 1930′s with rich histories of fighting for and securing the strongest protections for actresses, actors, and other media artists. Its members united to form the successor union known as SAG-AFTRA in order to preserve those hard-won rights and to continue the struggle to extend and expand those protections for actresses, actors, and other members of the entertainment industry. If you do decide to join SAG-AFTRA it is important to remember that you will have to pay membership fees every single year (this will be covered in detail in other ZARZAR MODELS articles for actresses) and you will not be allowed to work on non-union movies, non-union television shows, non-union television commercials, etc.

By this point fashion models and runway models that are interested in expanding into acting and developing an acting career might be wondering if there is an equivalent union for fashion models and runway models. The answer is that there is no comparable union for models, fashion models, and runway models in the modeling industry which is why you want to make sure that you are represented by a world class modeling agency if possible (for example, many of our models from around the world have appeared on magazine covers and/or fashion editorials from prestigious fashion magazines and publications as well as appeared in national and international fashion advertising campaigns).
“If there are no acting agents, acting agencies, or talent agencies within several hundred miles of where you live, there probably is no paying work where you live.”
Remember that the focus of this article on how to become an actress is to also discuss the business of acting: earning money, making a living thanks to your acting jobs, and building a professional acting career. You are probably going to spend a lot of time, energy, and money developing your acting career so it is extremely important for you to take a lot of time thinking about which acting agency (talent agency) is right for you. What might be the perfect acting agency (talent agency) for your best friend might not be the best acting agency (talent agency) for you. Also, if you live far away from Los Angeles or New York in a very small town in the middle of nowhere you might be doing yourself a favor by eventually moving to Los Angeles or New York where the agents (and the money) are located. Try driving several hundred miles for a five minute acting audition and then driving back home, then do the same thing the next day for the call back (a second audition to see if you can get the acting job). You will be exhausted from acting in no time, and your travel expenses will definitely diminish your earnings from acting.

If there are no acting agents and acting agencies (talent agencies) in your small town, it is probably because there is no acting work in your small town (if that is the case try to find the nearest town with an acting agency and ask if they work with the larger acting agencies in Los Angeles Southern California or New York). Local libraries, colleges, and universities with acting programs and acting degrees are also great starting points for starting your research and your search for your perfect acting agency and acting agent. Some beginning actresses go as far as contacting local production companies and local television stations and asking them for recommendations on reputable and prestigious acting agencies (talent agencies) which is what we meant by saying that you will probably spend a lot of time, money, and energy in developing your acting career.
