GLAMOUR MODELING AUDITIONS
The Glamour Modeling industry can be very exciting and rewarding. It is not for everyone, but for those with an outgoing and flirty personality – it can be a fantastic career path! In this guide we shall look at what you can expect when heading to auditions for glamour photographers.
What can you Expect from an audition?
Auditions for glamour modeling vary depending on the Company. Some are much harder to get into than others – so the audition process will be much more rigorous.Some Glamour Photographers simply want to meet you, say hi and have a quick chat about what the expectations are.Other Companies may require you to do a test shoot before they offer you any work.
What should you wear to an Audition?
Essentially, you should wear something that makes you feel sexy and comfortable at the same time. Don’t go overboard on the ‘sexy’ part ,you want to look attractive but you also need to present yourself as a professonal model. You should ensure that your hair and make-up are nicely done as the photographers are generally looking more for attractiveness and sex appeal than they are for personality and modeling ability. But at the same time – be yourself as you will feel more comfortable than if you try to pretend to be someone else.
What to Bring to an Audition?
Before you head to the audition you should always ask the photographer if there is anything they want you to bring. Even if they say that you don’t need to bring anything, you may want to take a show-reel or portfolio of your previous work (if applicable) to give to them as a reminder and also as an extra selling point for yourself. If you have a business card – that may also be a good thing to take with you as it makes you look more serious about your career and shows you have already taken steps to kick-starting your career. In today’s competitive world it may be a good idea to compile an abbreviated portfolio and info sheet on CD that you can leave.
You should also bring a notebook and pen. Not only does this make you look enthusiastic and professional, but it is also practical. You never know what notes you may want to make. Perhaps they will give you advice on what steps you should take next – you wouldn’t want to forget this so make sure you write it down.
Finally, bring your diary. They may request that you come back for a second interview. Having your diary handy not only helps you to look like a professional, it also lets them know that you are organized in your business. Also, that way you can easily let them know which days you are available and assures that you have the spot reserved so you do not forget.
How to get an Audition
The only way to get an audition is to ask for one – so don’t be shy.Head into their office or studio, or simply give them a call to find out how you can apply to be part of a project. Many of the larger modeling agencies have the option of online applications on their websites.These will usually require you to attach a couple of photos. If they like your application they will give you a call to schedule an audition.
There is no harm in following up your application with a phone call – this shows that you are very keen and enthusiastic as well as making sure that your application hasn’t gotten lost amongst all the others. Like we said before, don’t be shy – glamour model agencies want outgoing and flirtatious talent on their books – so show some initiative and head into their office and ask for an audition. Your confidence will show and that is what they are after.
