Freelance Modelling

Freelance Modeling

So you want to be free to do what you want to do? In the words of the song - why the hell not? Freelance modelling means what it says on the can - you are free to pick and choose and take your chances where you find them. You're not dictated to and you're free as a bird. If you don't want to do something you don't have to. You can schedule your own plans, your own jobs, your own future.

However it's not for the feint hearted. Freelance model work is seriously hard work and it takes drive, confidence and bucket loads of enthusiasm to make a success of a model career. You have to be organised and gain your own contacts. Model agents won't be there to arrange your time and organise your accommodation. You will have to sort it all out for yourself but if that's how you like it then don't hesitate. Go for it big style!

Make friends with the creative's, the photographers, the casting directors. Give your cards out like crazy, network and get your name and face out there. To be seen is to be remembered and to be heard is to be mesmerising. Freelance modelling is a freedom not many can handle and some give it a ago and turn back when the pressure mounts up. This is nothing to be ashamed of and can only add to your CV and your experience in this profession.

Having a model agent is certainly nothing to be ashamed either of and it may be the best course of action all round, but give freelance modelling a go if you think you're up to it. There are no middle men and you earn all you get - that's got to be with a shot don't you think?

Its all about NOT signing up to a model agency! A freelance Model will gain work independently, market themselves, manage their career. Many models begin their modelling life part time to earn a second income. A Freelance Modelling career can mean contacting your own clients, arranging your own schedules, be in control at all times.
