Hello Everybody this is Renaldo. With a few tips for aspiring models.
Build you brand and choose a name people can remember. Example my brand name is Renaldo Creative.
Sign Up for www.twitter.com, www.facebook.com, www.modelmayhem.com, www.modelturf.com, Choose something like http://twitter.com/yourname and not @cuteandprettync291.
Don’t sign up for modeling schools/agencies like John Casablanca, because John Casablanca is a scam. Real modeling agencies find models work and take a percent from what the models make. Normally from 10% to 15% per job.
Practice posing in the mirror, look at Magazines and Website. If you’re a freelance model you don’t need a Manager. You can manage yourself and be successful.
Respect independent urban magazine and publishers like BX25 Vixens Magazine and other magazine. These Magazine can boost your career, and help you get work. Use these Magazine to expand your career.
Post Vlogs on YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook. Promote yourself, answer fans questions, give beauty tips and show behind the scene videos.
Build your own personal website, don’t just use Twitter and Facebook. Invest in a Professional Web Designer or use services like www.tumblr.com, www.wordpress.com, www.wix.com (Choose HTML5 site) and www.blogger.com.
Join art communities like www.deviantart.com, www.carbonmade.com and www.behance.net. Modeling is still an art form.
Read every page of www.modelingadvice.com.
Do Promotional work like Fashion Shows, Magazine, Car Show, etc.
Study models work that your admire. Visit their site, blogs and study how they pose.
Book a shoot with a professional Glamour or Fashion Photographer. Photo from the Mall, School Pictures, Cell Phone, Wal-Mart and other Retail store don’t fit in your Portfolio book. While TFP (Time for Print) is great remember you need to invest in your career. Find a great photographer and pay for some of your shoots.

Discuss bringing an Escort to the Photo Shoot with your Photographer or Avoid bringing escort to your Photo Shoot. Only work with photographer you trust. Ask for reference or testimonies. Escorts can get in the way and destroy the photo shoot. Also don’t assume that a female Photographer is safer to work with than a male Photographer. Ask for reference or testimonies from female photographer. Male photographer got a bad rep from GWC Guy with Cameras. Normally fake photographer that don’t care about Photography. Let someone know where you are and let the photographer know when you leave home and that you got home safe.
