    Random thought, I was watching Australia's Next Top Model the other day and someone said I could do that. I'm male, btw, but it got me thinking, Ive never seriously really thought about it, but could I be a model?

    If so how would I be one and what do I need to do?

    Just curious.

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure. I really haven't thought about this that much.

    It seems pretty easy though, but I'm guessing it's not. But, just wondering about it.

    It's like winning the lottery apparently(1 in a million). I don't know much about other types of modelling except runway. Runway modelling - Cara is considered short in the runway industry. She's 5'7.

    Runway looks like the hardest thing to get into. I personally wouldn't recommend it.

    Create a portfolio of pictures of you in different types of clothes, poses, black & white and colour, suited, urban and send it to an agency.

    I did a little bit of modelling for a friend several years ago as she was starting up her own clothing brand, she got a professional photographer in and trust me, it's not fun. Never a case of just going in, having some photos done for half an hour and you're done. I had to get there at 6am, went into hair and make-up. That took a lot f***ing longer than it should. Then I had to sit around for 2 hours doing nothing while they messed around with the photo set, I wasn't allowed to go off site to get food or anything to fill out the time because they needed me there to call me in at any moment and I was on strict instruction not to eat anything salty or too many carbs for 24 hours leading up to it because they didn't want my face looking puffy, and was also instructed to drink lots of water the day before to make my skin look healthy. Then the photographer wants to take about 100 photos and keeps trying to describe poses very vaguely to you like you can read his mind and gets annoyed when they aren't perfect or your facial expression isn't perfect and you just end up wanting to tell him to shove the photos up his arse :rofl: Plus there were like 10 clothes changes so the process repeated numerous times and it took all f***ing day and was probably the most tedious day of my life.

    In short, I'd never want to model again, requires the patience of a saint and I just don't have that :toofunny:

    As above, it always make me laugh when people consider going into modelling because it looks easy.

    It's not easy, the hours are long and the criticism is brutal. You'll get more rejection than most jobs out there and your chances of being booked enough to make decent money are very slim. It's not even a stable job for the most part.
