Modeling Schools Waste Your Money and Time

College Guys don't need to sign up for a modeling school to learn how to be a male model.

Its that simple.

But college guys are difficult to convince. They are just aching to write a big fat check because they want an easy solution to their goal of becoming a model.

Since they are accustom to attending college classes to learn about a subject, they wrongly think they need to attend a modeling class to learn how to “be” a male model.

Photo Shots Are Training

A college guy will know everything he needs to know about how to pose after his 2nd or 3rd photo shoot with a photographer in a big city.

No Quick Solutions

Trouble is: no amount of money you pay or your parents pay is going to boost your career easily. You still need to do a lot of modeling work and talk to a lot of legitimate professionsla who know other professionals in the modeling biz. Often the best people to talk to are males your age who have successfully done a modeling job. You also learn how to model by posing for top-notch photographers who are likely located in New York, Miami or Los Angeles.

Modeling Schools Can Hold You Back

In fact, attending a modeling school will likely prevent or delay you from becoming successful. You waste you time by attending a school and learn poses that may not be what photographers like. Plus, sometimes a guy with a lot of potential will allow the school organizers to restrict his modeling career because they are interested in earning a "cut" of the modeling earnings of the few models who come into their school who have earning potential.

Busy modeling professionals may not be interested in interacting with a messy modeling school contract that a new model signed and will move onto the next guy who has pecs.

Let's put it in way that guys can understand: Instead of paying $2500 to attend a modeling school, you could spend a little money here and there on travel cost to be able to pose for legit photographers. Or you could spend $45 to take another male model your age to lunch to obtain his advice. (Most models will give you free advice if you are generous and professional enough to pay for their lunch.)
