Modelling schools?

As any other profession, you can train to be a model, in fact, there are quite a number of very reputable modeling schools around (for example, the Lucy Clayton School of Modeling in the UK), but be careful. It is not unheard of modeling schools that accept you even though you have no real chance of making it in the business. Some of them are, after all, only in it for the money. Our best advice here is to be totally honest and brutal with yourself. If you don’t have what it takes to be a model, including specific height and body structure, then no amount of model school effort is going to turn you into something you are not. There are a lot of disappointed potential models around who thought that school attendance would guarantee them a living in the modeling business. It does not.

When it comes to finding a school, check them out with other people in the business. Word of mouth and personal recommendation is a powerful ally of a good school. Make sure you ask the schools about their successes. You should interview them too! Ask them if they reject people who they do not think will make it. Its a very telling question!

There are a number of books around that will help you understand what it takes to be a model. These can give you a lot of background information and can act as a reference for you.
