How to start a modeling school!
Modeling is a great but high stress profession. The fashion industry keeps changing with newer and newer trends coming in all the time. And the demand for newer and fresher faces is always there. If you are planning to start a modeling school, then there are several things you should be careful of like-
- Most modeling schools offer an affiliate with a reputable modeling agency which will vet your choices for use in their ad campaigns. Chain operations like Barbizon and John Casablanca are all affiliates which have several chains all over the country and are also tied up with reputable modeling agencies like Elite etc. This immediately gives the modeling agency a reputation as there is a chance that fledgling models can get seen by creative directors of top modeling agencies.
- Modeling schools are very expensive as you will have to keep staffs to teach the different courses required. For example, newcomers have to be taught how to walk confidently on the ramp, off the ramp, an insight into the industry and image improvement, how to dress well and attend interviews.
- A regular attending esthetician will also be necessary to teach the models who have enrolled in your modeling school how to apply long lasting makeup (as well as day and night makeup), hair styling etc. They will have to be taught how to buy a professional make up kit and hair, and body and skin maintenance to keep them in top shape. Most modeling schools will also have to retain professional photographers to prepare the models portfolios. They have to be taught how to pose in front of cameras with dry runs and constant photo shoots to teach them to get comfortable for posing in front of cameras.
- A voice and acting coach is also necessary to prepare them for ad campaigns in front of cameras.
- A permanent location will become necessary to teach your models these classes and you will also have to keep clerical staff on hand to deal with administrative, financial and technical problems which come up.
- A fair amount of advertising will be necessary where you can tie up with local fashion shows at local malls to advertise your services to wannabe models. Media ads, tv ads and yellow pages ads will also be necessary to make people aware of your services.
- If you can afford it, you can also sign up modeling coaches who are really a great addition to your staff. Modeling coaches are experienced in a specific arena of modeling and teach models one on one to prepare a really top notch model. Although getting one on your staff is highly desirable, it really difficult to find them and they are expensive too.
