#1 Know Your Angles

First tip to being an extraordinary model. Know your angles.

“I once had a model who told me, “I must have a great profile because no one wants to shoot me looking straight ahead.” What can I say? It speaks for itself.  You know that part in the movie when the character says “did you get my good side?” Know your best side. Know what side your nose looks bigger or less refined. Know what side your jawline is more defined. How do you figure this out? It’s called a mirror. Look into it. All the time.  What angles do photographers love on you.  Watch the photographers that you shoot with and look for patterns on when they are pushing that shutter button. Listen for the clicks. If over time you consistently hear that click every time you tilt slightly left and down, that’s a great angle for you. You may have one side of your face where your smile is crooked or where one eye slightly closes. Look at your didgies that the photographer or your agent takes.  Ask to look at the film of your test shoots and ask for constructive criticism from your agent. KNOW YOUR ANGLES. It is  “Zoolander”  I know and I especially know this is one of the things that male models feel the most uncomfortable about modeling but this is business which will inevitably determine your bank account. Know your “go to” angles and “money” looks. If you’re not sure how well a shoot is going, resort to them.
