The book will teach you how to conduct yourself in a professional manner at all times and give you the strength to convey confidence in everything you set out to accomplish, not only in dealing with the fashion industry but also on a personal level, including the way you dress and communicate, not forgetting how to have fun while doing it!
You will learn how to master self-control in very high-pressure situations and how to control your emotions regardless of the pressure you’re under. Preparation is the key to your success and this book is going to prepare you like no other. After reading it you will also be able to project yourself into being the best you can be in all the various areas of your life. You will also learn how to listen and learn and not to complain or pout, but to be polite, sophisticated and someone who carries themselves with elegance and grace at all times.
This book will show you that the modeling industry is a very complex and competitive business and that if you plan on succeeding, you must have a passion and a desire to never give up. You will learn the importance of selling yourself and standing out at an audition or a Go-See in order to have the best opportunity of landing the job. Bottom line is that to survive in this business you’re going to need to know how to be thick-skinned and be able to handle rejection as well as praise, and this book is the tool that’s going to help you do it.
Learning how to pose and how to be absolutely fluent and natural in front of all sorts of different types of cameras is an important aspect of modeling, as is speaking in front of the camera, not to mention being completely at home on the runway or catwalk. It’s also essential not to appear shy at castings and bookings – a friendly, personable manner will get you places. Models have to remember to look someone in the eye when they are speaking or listening to them, and to NOT WEAR SHADES INDOORS OR DURING INTERVIEWS!
It’s frank advice like this that sets the Model Bible apart from other guides to modeling; that and all the details of how to prepare to get into a Model Agency by compiling an up to date professional Portfolio/ Look Book that showcases the different looks a model can offer and all the work she has done. Being ready to go on a casting or booking at the last minute, as well as being gracious about whatever clothing or hair or makeup is provided at the booking, is another mark of a professional model. In addition, enough emphasis cannot be put on sticking to an exercise regime that ensures that they have a healthy, toned body.
On the other hand, models have to realize that it’s not just about being pretty or about having a perfect body. My cousin who is a designer once told me “Making it as a model isn’t about being pretty, it’s about being unique”. I couldn’t agree more. I would even add to it: IT’S ABOUT BEING UNIQUE AND STAYING POSITIVE AND HAVING A GREAT ATTITUDE. The Model Bible will help you capitalize on your uniqueness, find the type of modeling that makes the most of your attributes and suits you best, and surround yourself with the experts who will help you succeed in what is a very exciting, if demanding business.
The only thing that never goes out of fashion is loving it. Rich Celenza
