Overview


From high-fashion spreads and runway shows to shoe, hand, hair, and character shots to magazine and catalog ads, this comprehensive guide reveals how to be a successful model without being a superstar or drop-dead gorgeous. Tips are given on breaking into the modeling business, finding the right agent, and maneuvering in this often complex business. Aspiring models-men, women, girls, and boys-find out what the modeling scenes are like in New York, other major US cities, Europe, and Australia. Detailed information is provided on modeling agencies, schools, conventions, and contests, along with advice on building a portfolio and using the Internet to expand opportunities. Interviews with industry legends and a complete resource section are also included.
