Norwich, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 01, 2009 -- High-end fashion modelling can be a fleeting career, with most models already being deemed too old for the catwalk when they reach their twenties. But just because you're getting older doesn't mean your career as a model has to be over. Models Direct is one modelling agency that won't discriminate about age. Here they offer some top tips when considering becoming a mature model.
â¢ Good skin. Good skin is a necessity for all models, and it's equally important for mature models. However, for this sector of modelling you don't need to worry about wrinkles!
â¢ Good health. It doesn't matter what age you are, you should be healthy and full of life.
â¢ Personality. When posing for photos your personality and natural beauty should shine through. To be any type of model you need to be relaxed, and comfortable performing in front of a camera.
â¢ Act your age. Mature models are often in demand to represent the older demographic, whether it's to advertise cruise holidays in a television advert or mature fashions in a catalogue. When applying to an agency such as Models Direct don't try to make yourself appear more youthful by wearing younger fashion styles or too much make-up. Stick with something classic and sophisticated.
There is always opportunity for older men and women to join the commercial modelling sector. After retirement you may find you have a lot of time on your hands and modelling will definitely prevent you from getting bored. It'll also earn you a bit of extra cash!
If you, or someone you know, has the look and personality to become a mature model you can find out more on the Models Direct website. Models Direct don't require any previous experience of modelling, just a photogenic face and some personality. Good luck!
