THE 4 OF US
Tip #1- Have your mobile phone fully charged
It may sound silly but it’s vital to ensure your phone is fully charged. It’s important for navigation, entertainment and even security. You never know when you may need to call your agent, or if your agent needs to get hold of you for last minute scheduling changes. I would personally recommend investing in a portable phone charger so you can always have a backup. That way you’re always connected!
Tip #2- Do your homework
Both at castings and on set it’s important to know who your working with. Check the call sheet in advance and research the project, photographer and team on set. This will not only help you know what sort of style the shoot is itself, but know the style of the photographer, stylist and makeup artist. It’s also handy to know the location and mood board. You may not always be provided with this information as things often change last minute, but remember you can always ask your agent and see what they can tell you.
Tip #3- Plan your wardrobe
Both for castings and for shoots it’s always good to make sure you look your best. Simple, plain but well fitted outfits help promote your body shape but also gives you a chance to reflect your personality. You don’t always need to spend a lot of money, but maybe consider investing in investment pieces. These can then become your staple pieces which you can miz with alternative outfits! With underwear also remember to have plain pieces such as black, nude or white to help you on set and with polaroid’s.
Tip #4- Don’t wear makeup
This will help you save time when in makeup on set. In modelling your skin is generally exposed to a lot of makeup, whether in editorials or shows, so keeping your skin fresh and natural to help protect it is crucial. Especially when you’re on route to a shoot try and ensure your skin is always clean to help keep it on its best form. Even in castings clients usually prefer a natural look to be able to see your true complexion. Less is always more!
Tip #5- Stay connected
You never know when you may work with the same photographer, makeup artist, stylist or other models again. So it’s good to stay connected and remember who you’ve been working with. This can especially work to your advantage in castings, the fashion industry is a much smaller, connected industry than you may think and respecting those who you work with will definitely pay of in the long run! Consider following them online, that way if you do recognise them in the future you can keep updated with their work and stay connected!
