What are the basic things you need to know as a model?
My answer is pretty simple. I learned you need to be professional, be prepared, and honestly be willing to learn through trail and error. There is no right or wrong way to model per say... But there are some basic skills to have to impress the company you are working for, to build your reputation, and succeed in the modeling industry. If you are interested in modeling world, the first thing you are going to have to know is how to be professional. What exactly does that mean? It means to represent your agency well by being on time, coming clean and well groomed and listen well to instruction. The second thing to know is to be prepared. Usually your agent will send you an email with detailed instructions about the modeling gig. This might include what shoes to bring, whether to come "hair and makeup ready" or "clean face." Didn't get an email with details? Text or email your agent and ask. Don't be afraid to request details for the job! And lastly,
You are constantly learning on the job when you are a model.
Try your best and be willing to learn through trail and error.
