If you are going to agencies
, appointments, clients or castings, it's important to have a great first impression. Sometimes you only have 1 minute with the client or model manager, and it can take even less than a minute for them to decide to work with you, or not.
I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients and model manager around the world and I have asked them, what it is that makes them decide to work with a model or not. These clients see hundreds of modeling portfolio books and need to make a decision on which person they want to work with.
Obviously, the look is important, but what stayed with me most was the first impression.
