Modeling Audition Tips 1: Research the Client

Read the audition call carefully. Research the client so you know what you are auditioning for. Is it for swimsuit modeling? Then bring your own bikini with you. Moisturize, shave, and make sure your skin and body look flawless. Look for models they used in the past. This will give you an idea of the “look” they like.

Modeling Audition Tips 2: Bring Your Modeling Portfolio

Choose 10-15 professional photos. Although you want your portfolio to be diverse, showcase additional photos relating to what  you’re auditioning for.

Modeling Audition Tips 3: Look Simple and Natural

Unless the audition call has different instructions, wear simple form-fitting clothes and natural make-up. Modeling agencies want to see the shape of your body and your real face. Jewelry should be kept to a minimum.

Female models should wear skinny jeans and a fitted tank top or a little black dress. For male models – just jeans and fitted t-shirt. Bring an extra outfit just in case they want you to change. DO NOT wear any flashy or loose clothing and try to cover any body tattoos.
