So You Want to Be a Model?

by Jett Middleton on May 1, 2011

So you’re considering becoming a model, this 3 Part Series is for YOU! This series was put together by a well-respected photographer I had the opportunity to work with, Joe Edelman, during the Meeting of the Masters. If you are seriously considering becoming a model, he is THE MAN to work with-and do it right! I hope you enjoy.

Part 1





Do I really need a makeup artist?

Every model should learn how to apply makeup. HOWEVER – when you are building your portfolio – HIRE A Makeup Artist!

Your portfolio and comp card pictures are your primary and most important marketing tools. Not only is it important to hire a great photographer, but also it is equally as important to hire a great makeup artist.

No model can do their own hair and makeup as well as a professional can and it is crucial that you look amazing in your pictures. Additionally, makeup for the camera is very different than makeup for everyday wear and a good makeup artist accounts for this difference.

A good makeup artist not only brings excellent skills and artistry to a shoot – but also is very involved in the creative process and contributes equally with the photographer and model.
