How to Become a Mature Model With Models Direct
Added: (Wed Sep 30 2009)
High-end fashion modelling can be a fleeting career, with most models already being deemed too old for the catwalk when they reach their twenties. But just because youíre getting older doesnít mean your career as a model has to be over. Models Direct is one modelling agency that wonít discriminate about age. Here they offer some top tips when considering becoming a mature model.
• Good skin. Good skin is a necessity for all models, and itís equally important for mature models. However, for this sector of modelling you donít need to worry about wrinkles!
• Good health. It doesnít matter what age you are, you should be healthy and full of life.
• Personality. When posing for photos your personality and natural beauty should shine through. To be any type of model you need to be relaxed, and comfortable performing in front of a camera.
• Act your age. Mature models are often in demand to represent the older demographic, whether itís to advertise cruise holidays in a television advert or mature fashions in a catalogue. When applying to an agency such as Models Direct donít try to make yourself appear more youthful by wearing younger fashion styles or too much make-up. Stick with something classic and sophisticated.
There is always opportunity for older men and women to join the commercial modelling sector. After retirement you may find you have a lot of time on your hands and modelling will definitely prevent you from getting bored. Itíll also earn you a bit of extra cash!
If you, or someone you know, has the look and personality to become a mature model you can find out more on the Models Direct website. Models Direct donít require any previous experience of modelling, just a photogenic face and some personality. Good luck!
