How to Model Without an Agency by Anita De Bauch

"Can I still be a model if I didn't get into an agency?" "How can I make money from modelling?" "How can I raise my profile as a model online?" Anita De Bauch, full-time professional model and cover girl sponsored by numerous fashion and beauty companies, honestly and comprehensively reveals her tried and tested business tactics to maximise profits without being signed to an agency, posing techniques to unlock your natural beauty, and invites expert guests to share game-changing nutrition advice and personal stories of real life in the modelling industry. Anita De Bauch reveals the real truth about freelance modelling, where she travels the world working with everyone from SHOWstudio to Perou (of TV's Dirty Sexy Things and Make Me a Super Model), wearing everything from Vivienne Westwood to unique latex couture, and makes her fortune modelling fashion, lingerie, commercial, glamour, fetish, alternative, vintage styles and artistic nudes. In How To Model Without an Agency, Anita shows step by step how she achieved her status and continues to succeed in the world of modelling without being signed to an agency, or being over 5'8", or being under 21: "I wrote this book because I want women to realise that they don't need perfect genetics, a personal styling team, thousands to spend on designer clothing, or an unlikely stroke of luck in order to model. All you need is a little insider knowledge and a lot of determination. This book will show you how." - Anita De Bauch
