Teen Model Advice


teen model advice

Teen model advice is a tricky subject its true. There's no rhyme or reason and we can't tell you which way to go is best. The main question we get asked is how to become a teen model and if you need some help then study our how to be a teen model guide on the right-hand side of the front page of the website. We have covered all aspects of the industry relating to your age, and it is also a great place to show your parents if you are having a battle with them to let you even take up this part time. If you are with a teen modelling agent, then you have already made the right decision. Freelance teen modelling is a hard area to keep up with, and it takes a lot out of you and your parents as well. Teen model agents can detect looks and types of teen modelling and they can steer you in the right direction straightaway.

Fashion work is a different road to go down and it could be a path you decide not to travel on in the end and take up this sort of work as a career. It's very hard work and it's very challenging and if you are balancing a model job and schoolwork, you know what we're talking about. If you have any doubts that you think you can commit the time and effort, then perhaps think again and wait until your late teens when perhaps school is out of the picture.

Keep on good terms with your parents at all times because you need them more than you know. You certainly can't go to any photo shoots or casting sessions without a parent or guardian present if you are under 16. If you can't drive then you need your parents to help carry the load and take you from shoots to shoot. They have to give up as much time as you, if not more and they will be worrying about your welfare and always have your best interests at heart so remember that.

Models need to grow a thick skin and be prepared for rejection it's true. Not everyone is kind and the model world can be brutal. So be prepared for disappointment. But don't take rejection as the bitter end, because there are so many different types of modelling that you can't grow into. You need to do your homework. as well as doing background work to prepare you for the long journey to stardom on the catwalk. But it's by no means an impossible dream. Whatever the shape or size you are we're sure that with the backing from your folks,  you'll make it into the teen modelling industry and good luck.
