How to appear in advertising
For starters, you need to determine whether you are suitable for filming in advertising. View your photos and home videos, to objectively evaluate your photos and videoanekdoty. Avoid the two extremes, as excessive self-criticism and revaluation of its external data. The only important thing: do you know how profitable to teach, to teach yourself? If you are not pressed before the photo - or video camera? Sufficiently confident, natural and relaxed stay in the frame? If Yes, then this is already half of success!
The second part of your success is your photos. Here you have two options:
1. Choose a pair (maybe more) of your best photos: a portrait photo and a full-length shot. It can be unprofessional photos, but high-quality, with favorable foreshortening and lighting.
2. But it is better to make a professional portfolio. This will increase your chances to appear in advertisements. Portfolio it is better to make the photographer who specializiruetsya in the filming for advertising. A good portfolio can be considered as 20 pictures of different plan and character that you portray a variety of emotions. However, it is unlikely that you will be able to portray it all in one photography. Therefore it is better to do 5-8 sessions photo shoot in Studio and on location. As for the price for the portfolio, that high quality means high price.
You can also learn acting and plastic arts in the podium school at the modeling agency or at the acting courses. (For example, enroll in a master class for courses for novice actors and models -http://howtomodel.ru/master-klassy/ ). After all, in the photography of advertising may be required not only to smile in the frame, and it is possible to depict the changing emotions (e.g., sadness and despair to unbridled joy), or to say something. And this "something to say" also need to be able to. After all, the same phrase (even the simplest) you can say with a million different intonations! Theatre education classes at the clubs — it certainly is a "plus" for you. In practice, however, this is optional. It is more important to be active and "alive" on the casting, not constricted and not hesitate camera. And yet — to be "at the right time and right place". That is, in a casting Agency to get the required for a specific photo/ video type.
Next, you need to contact the casting center, advertising or modeling Agency. And even better in several different agencies. You can publish your profile and your photos on the sites of casting agencies, to send photos (plus your location and data type) or bring them personally to the Agency.
After you have posted your profile, don't sit idly by waiting for invitations to audition as active. Check daily to see information about new auditions on the site of your Agency, additionally look for ads on other sites. Submit an application to participate in the auditions if you think you qualify for these surveys. Periodically call the Agency, but without being obtrusive.
Believe in yourself and in your strength, and you will definitely succeed!
