No more gym?!?!

So my gym is closed for two weeks for " remodeling"... what does that mean "remodeling?" Does that mean that once the doors re open that we will all look like models?
Hmmmmmm...now this does not come at a great time for me, since I just got done posting about swim season around the corner, so should I be hitting the gym in solidarity? And yes I did once upon a time make a living as a swimsuit model. This was before the gym was even on my radar.

Now, as I realized that my gym was off the table for 2 weeks, I realized that we have no reason to pay high gym fees in Southern California. With 80 degree weather, and mountains just about everywhere you look, there is no better place to get out and take a walk, jog, or even hike.
So if you are looking for a new work out that does not require a sign up fee, look no further than your sneakers and your own neighborhood.

MODELING PHOTOS GOING TO WORK FOR YOU!!!

Today I was busy picking a list of models for a client booking in New York and Florida, and keep in mind that this was one list of about 20 different model list requests today.
Of course I always try to push for the models that are reliable, professional, easy to work with, and of course beautiful goes without being said.
My biggest concern is that when I send out your photos to clients, I am highly aware of the fact that many of you have not updated your photos in a REALLY long time.
From my perspective, I know how people change,and I actually am hesitant to send the older photos out since I really do not want you to show up looking 5 years older!
The moral of the story is that we need to stay current, so for you that means getting fresh updated photos to the office ASAP!
We are so excited, stay tuned, I will be posting photos and bios on the models that are booking some BIG clients!

Male Models at Peak Models & Talent


When people think about modeling the first thing that usually comes to mind is beautiful women.
At Peak Models & Talent we have plenty of beautiful women, and men for that matter!
One of our male models Bradd has a business backround, and it really shows.
Bradd has always taken his career seriously, and that is why he books with ease.
Brad just finished a Red Carpet event for Peak Models & Talent and a major resort cruise line.
With models like Bradd that show up prepared, with a great attitude and always looking his best, it is clear why so many clients call and say. " You know what we need, just book your best guys".
Well Bradd is one of our go to guys when it comes to reliability, ethics and high standards.
Thanks Bradd!

Bikini models?


We just had a casting that requested selected models via photos to come in wearing a bikini for the audition. As much as I would have loved to send them the people that I KNOW wanted to do the bikini thing, they had other ideas, and hand picked their ladies.
Before I could press the send button, ( or so it seemed) the phone started ringing with calls for the requested ladies...
" Oh this is not a good time for me to be in a bikini" or... " Oh I have not been at the gym in months, so I am not comfortable going in swimwear".
Believe me, I would just as well wear a winter coat in August, however we all have to face it spring has sprung, and it is time to get busy.
Now here is where we all need to be on the same page, so here it goes... I know that some of you might not LOVE swim jobs, and maybe you do not even book those types of jobs, but really as a model you need to ALWAYS be ready for anything your agent throws your way.
And, as a model, you need to be able to wear a swim suit with ease, since after all, you are a model, and this is basic modeling 101 right?
So whatever bikini ready means to you, it is that time of year.
And remember NO tan lines. :) If you are out in the sun, use an SPF to protect yourself from sun damage as well.
Happy Spring!!!

Resources for models


With spring just around the corner, many of you have been asking what to wear on castings, and also what shoes to have in your shoe bag for bookings.
Of course I expect that every professional model has his/her own collection of shoes in a handy shoe bag, but if you are just starting out, you might need to collect some items to build up your
" toolbox" .
If you want to find cosmetics, shoes, and accessories, go to our resources link and click on the companies that we have found.

Key to models success!

Are we really still wondering why some models book and some do not?
There is just so much an agency can do for a model, and if you really want to start seeing results, you need to make sure you have the essential keys to your career.
1. Is you portfolio updated with current photos that reflect today's market?
For instance, are you running around with a black and white headshot from 5 years ago?
2. Is you book all bubbly and heat damaged?
3. Are all of your photos in your book from one photo shoot?
Ok seriously I cannot stress this enough, any pro can tell when your shots are all from one shoot, and nothing says " newbie" more than a book filled with shots from one shoot, with one photographer.
4. Are you prepared when you go to castings?
This means having your book and comp card with PEAK logo clearly displayed for the client to call us?
I cannot tell you how many models lose bookings this way, clients call me and say " What was the name of the girl you sent over with the long brown hair and blue eyes? " She was really pretty and we want to book her, but she did not leave a card?"
HA! Now that is a mystery!!! So... we try to do the detective work and figure it out, but usually the clients are in a hurry and say" Oh never mind, just book so and so...."
And there you have it, no card for the client, and jobs can be missed!
So, do not miss out on your opportunity to book the jobs you are going for!
