Working as a Model Requires a Big City Attitude
Modeling is an industry which is motivated by money. Professionals in the modeling industry want to work with models who help them make money by meeting the needs and motivations of the industry. That industry also has many "competition" - guys who are competing against you to obtain Model Jobs you want. If you were a buyer of modeling talent, who would you want to choose to work with? A guy who is concerned what his fraternity brothers will think - or a guy who is flexible and independent and who will accept modeling jobs without concerns and hesitation?
You need to sell your modeling talent to the people who hire models. A "small town attitude" has no place on the professional modeling photo shoot. What works in your hometown will not work with a big time opportunity.
Here are the main ways Athletic Modeling thinks a guy who wants to model can adopt a "big city attitude."
Do Not Involve Your Parents
Do Not Involve Your Girlfriend
Move to a Big City or Spend Your Breaks in a Big City
Be Able to Easily Travel Alone and With Little Notice
Don't Be Conservative
Don't Try to Please Your Hometown or campus friends
Accept the Importance of Networking
Think Like a Casting Director
Success comes to those who think BIG... not small town. So, give it a try.
