When Offered to Travel for Modeling Jobs, Do Not Mention Your Need to Request Off Work

If you receive a call for a modeling job, you need to stress that you are available. Do not mention your need to ask your boss for time off work.

Asking a boss is not something other male models discuss. So, you instantly give the person a reason not to hire you by bringing up this issue.

Remember, a professional dealing with organizing a million dollar advertising campaign doesn't give a shit about your job at Target. And why should he? If you are 22, you likely will have several different jobs before you reach 30, and making sure someone covers the 11am to 5pm shift next Saturday is simply not important to a busy photographer holding a list of eight male models who want the job.

Yes, you need to earn money to pay your bills and rent in your hometown, but you want to become a model. Doing that means being available - and most likely means your will need to travel. So, you are faced with a problem you need to resolve because there are tons of other guys who would easily make themselves avalable.

Remember, your boss at your job is motivated to keep his shifts covered. Your modeling career really isn't important to him. Changing a schedule that he spent two hours preparing means you are creating more work for him - something other employees do not do. Additionally, if you have a male boss, he may resent all the pussy that you get as a hot guy.

If you are ready to become a male model, consider our innovative advice on how to get your modeling career started locally, on your college campus. Its a fun way for you and 11 of your on-campus buddies to take a giant leap ahead of other aspiring models!

  • Shoot Prep

    After working with thousands of new models and college students, we know the concerns, issues and questions many new models have before their first photo shoot. It is normal for even the most macho guy to be nervous prior to his first shoot. We compiled all this training info into “ShootPrep” – our dedicated site for training models with whom we work.
