Seeking an offbeat career as a modelling photographer is a very common sight in the contemporary times. There are certain things which would help you ace as a modelling photographer. Your values and work ethics counts as well. To make an impression on your recruiters, the following tips would surely help you a lot.
After recruiting for years as a recruiter of modelling photographers, now I have ended up with a million of memories which have taught me a lot about the profession and also gifted me a large number of memories that are worth sharing. Here today, I am going to share some of the useful pointers that I have learnt from my experience with the modelling photographers whom I have interacted with from recruiting.
Do not show off
Do not exaggerate your knowledge of a certain skill. It can happen that you do not know much about certain theories or techniques which you are being asked about. The zeal to learn them soon counts and not how much of an expert you already are. If you do not know and still boast about your skill and then get caught by the recruiters, it would definitely leave a lasting and a bad impression on their mind.
Enhance your sense of good frame
This can be done with endless practice and understanding of the setup for the photo-shoot. Understand the light and work with them at your advantage. Be innovative and apply your learning in the practical world. Your ability to apply the theories in practical field would count more than anything else.
Please be to the point
You can be a possessor of a number of extracurricular skills, but how good you are at modelling photography is the only factor that would count. If you are asked about a certain aspect of the genre, stick to the point and do not divert the interview to some other irrelevant topic- it would only indirectly point out your lack of knowledge.
You may have gotten a break which had been good. But all of a sudden you have got a call from another bigger agency. Make it a point to stick to your work ethics and if you absolutely have to join the other opportunity, make an arrangement to substitute your absence with the previous agency. Your loyalty also counts as an asset to your recruiters.
