Have you always admired commercial models when you were younger? Do you know that models are being hired everywhere every day because new ads keep coming up? Well, it is not yet too late. You can still start becoming a model forcommercial printing jobs like posters, brochures, calendars, and the like. Many small budget companies do not hire advertising agencies anymore. They just ask their commercial printer to do their design and layout and also to find a local model for their purpose. So this could be your chance.

If you think that you have what it takes to become a model for a niche campaign, then do start preparing your portfolio now.

1. Make a list of talent agencies and commercial printers in your area. Then prepare portfolios for each of them. Or you can narrow down your submissions to the top five biggest companies. So that means you will have to make five sets of portfolio to be submitted to all of them.

2. Prepare your portfolio. Write your own resume. Personalize it because after all, you not submitting a resume for a corporate position. You want to be a model. So they would not care if you earned a magna cum laude in communications. But they would at least need a little personal information. Include your contact details like your mailing address, e-mail address, telephone numbers, and website (if you have), so that they can easily reach you when necessary.

3. Have some body and head shots of you taken by a professional photographer. If you cannot afford to make the investment for the talent fee of a photographer, then just go to a photo studio where there are photography equipment available and ask them to photograph you from different angles. Wear simple clothes. You can wear makeup but do not wear it heavily. Additionally, accessories would be nice if they enhance your outfit, but make sure that you are not wearing too much otherwise you would look dowdy.

4. Have comp cards printed. You can have a couple of photos in one sheet, like your head shot and your full body shot. Put your name on top. Below the photos, put your measurements. You can have a graphics artist do this. But you can also do this yourself even you are just using Microsoft Word. Then you can print it at home using your inkjet printer. Or you can have it produce at the print shop and you can just pay them per sheet. You can submit this together with your resume to the agencies that you have identified.

Aside from the ones where you have submitted your portfolio, you can also pursue freelance modeling jobs. You can spread the word that your modeling services are for hire so that even your friends who have local businesses can also hire you. Just be careful with submitting your portfolio. Make sure that it is a legitimate company because there are also fly-by-night agencies that just use photos and people to their own illegal gain. You do not want to take part in that.

Prepare yourself for disappointment. You have to realize that the business of becoming a commercial printing model could be competitive. Moreover, there are just really roles that are not suitable for you. So if you get a “No” from some companies, then go to the next agency or commercial printer.
