Not everyone can become professional models, that much is true. Some may have the same physical attributes as the world’s top supermodels have. Some may be as tall as Nigerian supermodel Oluchi Onweagba, or as gorgeous as any of the Brazilian supermodels who have taken the modeling world by storm. But in very much the same way that not all good basketball players make it to the NBA, not all good-looking men and women can break into the world of professional modeling. That’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
But don’t let your modeling dreams crumble just because you’ll never make it to the runways of Milan, Paris, London and New York. There are other more viable options, and all of them are just within reach. By getting into the world of amateur modeling, you’ll get to live out all your modeling fantasies, and more!
There is a world of amateur modeling opportunities out there, and it’s up to you to grab any of them. Unlike professional modeling, amateur modeling is not replete with restrictions and requirements. Basically, amateur modeling is open to people of any age, size, height, or modeling experience. You can even do modeling work without any previous modeling experience at all!
Amateur modeling work consists of just about every imaginable type of modeling in existence. In doing amateur modeling work, you can either choose swimsuit or bikini modeling photo shoots, as well as lingerie or underwear shoots. Or if you are more daring than usual, you can be featured in countless websites that are constantly on the lookout for amateur models who are willing to shed their clothes for the camera.
Then of course, there are the amateur fashion modeling shows where you can display modeling skills that could compete with the best of them. These amateur fashion shows are sometimes held in malls, in community halls and gymnasiums, showcasing creations by local designers or fashion stores.
Joining amateur modeling contests is also one good way of breaking into the scene. Radio shows, television programs, local firms from all over the world often find themselves holding such amateur modeling contests, and sometimes stumble on real modeling gems. Like Heidi Klum for instance, who once joined an amateur modeling contest in her home country of Germany, and look how far she’s gotten. For all you know, you could be the next Heidi Klum. Try joining any of these contests and find out for yourself.
