London, UK (PRWEB UK) 19 September 2012
Learning the tips and tricks of the modelling industry is vital say UK Model Agencies, the leading experts with new model advice just launched online.
“How to get into the modelling industry is the question we get asked 100 times a day,” says Stevie Lake, marketing manager for UK Model Agencies. “Our team here are only delighted to speak personally with any model who would like our model advice, but our new pages are aimed at answering questions before they get asked and giving a model of any experience, an insight into how to break into the modelling market.”
As the UK’s largest online model agency directory, UK Model Agencies are a team dedicated to dealing with anything to do with modelling and tackle subjects which can also be taboo. They pride themselves on being open and honest, and are there to offer advice, modelling information and all the latest news and gossip for any model, as well as promoting casting calls and modelling jobs as soon as they are advertised.
“In a very visual industry, is so important for a model to look great at all times,” says Helen Stark, fashion editor for UKMA. “A modelling portfolio is always the best way to get noticed is a model. It’s all about knowing how to promote yourself in this very tough economic climate and these days more so than ever before, modelling jobs are hard to come by. It is still a very competitive industry and a model needs to be unique, to have their own style and have a portfolio which promotes their best assets.”
Helen also advises other ways of self-promotion, such as posting videos online promoting model poses and past work, which can be uploaded to YouTube very easily she says.
“Website such as Flickr can be an inexpensive way of self-promotion and of course the social networking sites are a must for any model. We have our own Facebook page, which we launched last week, and we have been astounded by how many models have visited to like the page already. It’s a great way for models to keep in touch, but it’s also a chance for model agencies to see the models out there.”
The new UKMA Facebook page offers the chance for models to promote their images and to send in full top-quality photographs which the team at UK Model Agencies will publish on their behalf.
“Breaking into the modelling industry is not easy, but with the beauty of the Internet, it’s a lot easier than it used to be,” says Stevie.” We have lots of tips and advice which we hope will inspire a model to kick start their career and to take the plunge to change their working life. We will be updating the website with more pages this week, centring on tips and advice of how to break the back of modelling.”
Offering honesty, professionalism and model advice, the team at UK Model Agencies receive thousands of e-mails each week from aspiring models and the question on every model’s lips seems to be how to get into the industry. Their new pages launched today answer that very question they hope.
