Auditions at Explore Talent
going on modeling auditions, your portfolio and resume
most likely got you in the door. If you have a modeling
agent, that agency will put together your portfolio
and promote you to companies looking for new faces
for their product. Depending on the product being
sold, different jobs will require different looks.
When creating your portfolio, try to include pictures
that showcase the different looks you might have.
Never be too bold if you can pull it off. The more
options you may be able to display as a model, the
better chance you have of booking a job. Most models
have a look or genre they are most confident with,
so stay true to what you think your best look or style
On a modeling audition you
will be brought in to meet with the casting director
or producer of the project being cast for. They may
take some test shots of you and meet with you briefly,
but there is nothing more to prove than the right
look. Unlike acting auditions, or singing auditions,
your look and attitude alone will usually be what
lands you the job. Models don't necessarily have to
"act" if the look is right.
When you go to the audition,
bring your portfolio along with a headshot and card
with your measurements. All models should have available
their height, weight, shoe size, hat size and waist.
For males, you should know your suit size, shirt size
and inseam. For women, you should have available your
bust size, hips, dress size, blouse size and pant
Be courteous, polite and most
importantly, be yourself on a model audition. You
are not necessarily acting a part, but selling your
look. A polite and professional attitude will only
help your chances. If a casting director doesn't like
your attitude, they may never hire you again.
