So, Shine, present your best personality and smile a lot.
Professional fashion photography is very important to the growth, development and presentation of new models or actors. Do not take chances on amateur photographers. Selfies, Glamour shots or family photos are not acceptable. Glamour shots use too many rhinestones, jewelry and glitter. You do not need distractions when you are photographed, not even jewelry. Believe me, it takes away from you and looks very unprofessional. Cameo presents Top Fashion photographers. Cameo can help you build a great portfolio. I suggest that you Get started, Get excited, Go for it!
What do I wear for an interview with an agent or prepare for my audition or a fashion photographer?
Look hip, stylish and young.
Ladies: A chic dress, or black mini skirt, white top, hose and heels are great.
Do not wear outlandish shoes, platforms, tennis or flip-flops. Pumps are best.
Jeans are exceptable, just dress them up with a stylish top.
No jewelry. Minimal perfume. Natural make up.
Hair should be clean and styled in a universal fashion.
Hairstyles should be short and sassy or long and flowing.
French manicure, pale pink or clear nail polish
Men: Wear form fitting jeans, black or white muscle shirt, or creative casual look.
Loafers or a casual shoe. No tennis shoes. Rugged beard or a clean shave face.
Children: Look like a model child out of Good Housekeeping magazine.
Wear a comfortable creative casual look, denim, neon casual clothing.
No tennis, no frills, satin or sequins. Definitely, no make up on children.
What will Cameo Agents be looking for in model and acting talent?
Several things. Remember, I talked about that great smile and personality, it goes a long way. Also a talent that presents PASSION and a special Determination to succeed, knowing that it is going to be hard work involved. Acting talent or model talent with a great look, or just one that the agent knows she can sell.
I would like to be an actor. How can I really know if I have talent?
That is a tough one. Some people are born with acting skills just like a talented singer, dancer or an artistic painter. Others have to study and work really hard at it. Even professionals who have starred in movies take acting classes to get better and better.
If you send me a DVD, or u-tube link I will give you an honest answer.
On your 90 second u-tube link or DVD, do several TV commercials or a monologue if you wish. An agent can tell in two minutes if you've got what it takes.
What is the major difference between a modeling school and agency?
A modeling school should offer professional coaching, by an experienced, accomplished coach on Runway, Voice in TV commercials, study of acting scripts, photography preparation, personality development, personal empowerment, self confidence, social graces, charm, etiquette, and human relation skills. There is tuition for these services.
Be sure to check the credentials of your model / acting coach. Modeling schools make the bulk of their money from tuition and other products they sell.
An agency, books talent either from direct castings or from your photos which is called stock bookings. If an agency does not have professional photo work of you, they cannot properly represent you or market you. An agency makes the bulk of their income from landing good booking opportunities, with skilled talent that can go in to win the job. You must have skill and talent to back your photo work. These days, clients are not just booking the next pretty face. YOU MUST HAVE TALENT. Always obtain personal references on the companies you decide to do business with.
Does it cost a lot of money to get started in this business?
That depends on what you consider a lot of money. Money is relative in the business and may seem a lot to you and may not to someone else. I find that you usually get what you pay for. There are many things to consider when investing money in your model acting career, which is what you are doing…investing in yourself.
I hate to hear someone tell me, "I heard that if someone wants you, you should not have to pay for anything". That is the biggest myth in the industry. Everyone has to pay for something in order to further his or her careers started or even get professional photography work done. It is matter of trust. Eventually, you will trust your future in modeling or acting with someone. Be sure you are giving your money to reputable people. Ask for references, photography work samples, or other hidden costs.
Do not ask for guarantees, as there are none in this business. If someone promises you guarantees. RUN.
How do I get started on a local level?
Google information or go old fashioned & look in the phone book and call the agencies and schools that are listed, and see if they offer what you are looking for. Ask about cost, the model / actor types they represent, Agents, training, bookings etc. Ask then to send you information. I suggest you get e-mail. This fast paced industry communicates by way of e-mail, text & twitter.
Make appointments with the ones you feel comfortable with. If you are under 18, be sure to take a parent or guardian with you on your interview. Finances will be discussed at the end of the interview. Ask for references.
Remember there are no guarantees in model coaching or model bookings, only hard work and lots of rejection. Only the strong survive in this business.
What do I need to do, to get started in the business?
You can go about this in several ways. I am hoping that as you review the Cameo information preparation audition package, that you will be in attendance at the next open call. That would be a step in the right direction. I would like the opportunity to coach you or market your skills and talents in modeling or acting. I have contacts all over the world. Most important I am here to market you, present you, and help you to follow through, and to keep your momentum going.
I have what it takes to be discovered in the national market. Can you help me?
