Finding the Supermodel in You: The Insider¿s Guide to Teen Modeling by Claudia Mason

Discover your inner confidence and how to navigate the exciting world of modeling—whether or not you become a model.

Regardless of your weight, health, size, religion or nationality, author Claudia Mason believes there is a supermodel in all of us. Discovered at age thirteen, Mason has lived through the journey from unknown to supermodel and shares with us here her wealth of knowledge. Though teens may hate to admit it, they are still in the earliest stages of adulthood and need guidance—especially if their guardians are clueless to the inner workings of the entertainment industry. Modeling is a demanding career that places tremendous pressure on a young person to perform well, look perfect, and win the job and good graces of the adults around them. Scary stuff for teens, as well as for their parents. So who to turn to? Whom to trust? Where to go?

It’s here where Mason lends her invaluable advice and expertise. Join her as she opens the doors of the industry to you and provides you with the tools you’ll need to safely thrive in this fast-paced industry. Mason starts with tips for getting into the business and goes on to explain the necessary role of chaperones for models under eighteen. Learn how to become assertive and work with agents and bookers, and how to manage your money from your newfound success. Mason also touches on more serious issues by discussing how to navigate a work place that so often intersects with the world of “sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll.” Discover advice for helping your teen stay true to themselves and come out ahead. And finally learn about what to expect after the too-short window for modeling closes and also about ways to build a brand that lasts.

Through Mason’s The Insider’s Guide to Teen Modeling and Finding the Supermodel in YOU , teens will learn how to be happy, confident models who can survive the frontlines of fashion. The expertise Mason passes along to would-be models is equally relevant for all teens, as well as adults.
