Bridal again is one of the most sought after jobs in modeling, since the dresses are gorgeous, but you have to FIT the dress~

Wednesday, July 21, 2010


Staying FIT is obviously a top concern for models.
In the business a FIT model tries on clothes for manufacturers, and a FITNESS model works with FITNESS companies.
Tina is pictured here in a FITNESS catalog booked with PEAK MODELS & TALENT, and we know that our models FIT the bill when clients call!

For models that want to stand out, getting a COVER of a MAGAZINE is one way to show that you can land the bigger jobs!

If you want to be on the pages of a magazine, make sure you have great shots and a strong portfolio!

When new models come into the office, it is always our job to " place" then into a category that we feel they can book the most. Many times models will come in with a great look, but no particular style to that we can pin point. What I mean is, there are specific models that meet specific looks.
For the Ralph Lauren model you need sophistication with an understated look. For denim, you might want a younger model with long hair flowing around her jeans. You get the picture!
So when you need to find your personal style, it might be worth it to invest in a style consultant.
Last year at the RockStar System for Success I met a very stylish woman named Tamra Nashman.
When Tamra walked into the room, you could feel her sense of style. Everything about her look said confidence and style. I was not surprised when I learned that she had over 20years of experience in television and her face promoted products from Hertz to Canon Copiers, and high end cars as well.
Tamra Nashman has created a systme called the EXTRA ORDINARY IMAGE to assist individuals with their personal style and personal packaging.
Tamra can take you from presentable to POLISHED. There is no better way to book a job then to LOOK the part, so find your STYLE and WORK IT! For more information go to
Make sure to find your personal style and create a look that books!

When you go to buy clothing, have you ever noticed that you will shop at stores that you identify with? For instance, a mom might want to shop with companies that create sporty or classic clothes, instead of the trendy younger styles.
For our classic models, these images are valuable to show their range of styles to potential clients!

Irena is one of our more petite models, and so for Irena it is important that she be placed with the proper clients to book.

Thank you Irena for doing your part to book the opportunities that we provide at Peak Models & Talent.
It is your consistent efforts and patience that has paid off in booking!

There are days when everything seems out of sync and days where all is well!
Today for example we have a bunch of bookings, Disney, Wells Fargo, Adidas, and Asics is on hold all for print. We also had a model email her new photos and book a catalog job right off the photos!
Now that is inspiring! Imagine if you could just send a photo in, we pass it on to a client and you get booked! Isn't that what you want?
Now there is the other side of the puzzle, you are low on funds, trying to survive and you have us saying " get new photos" and you feel like it is a catch 22.
Well it is, and there is also a solution! If you feel like you cannot get shots, there are several photographers in school that would LOVE to shoot with a beautiful model! When I was modeling I would go to the Pasadena Art School and trade my time for photos with up and coming photographers, and I have some great photos that I still keep in my memory box, since my modeling day have sailed on since the agency :)
So the bottom line is that if you feel like it you are swimming up stream, just call some Art schools and check in with the photography department, and they can surely hook you up with their students!
Make sure to NEVER shoot alone with anyone, as your safety is #1 . We are always happy to provide any information we can when it comes to helping our models, and this idea seemed to work for me, hope it works for you to!

Models need to know that having great skin can create opportunities to book different types of projects.
This job booked with one of our models a while back and shows her face being used for a medical company.
Remember having great skin goes a long way!

Styles of photography

Models know that having a book with different looks can help any model book the next job.
With any client, showing a range of looks can land you a new client and repeat business.
Make sure your agency has a variety of images to submit for you!
