To be a model is not only to say «I’m a model». This is all about «You have to act».
You have to present yourself with your works. Every day and everywhere, no matter where you are at this moment or what is your destination. This is more than just your job. This should be your lifestyle.
If we talk about you as a model, this isn’t just about beautiful «static» picture. Yes, this is important, but you should think about your modeling life in combination. In my opinion, this is where the video is changing the game for models in fashion industry.
A great modeling videotest should tell the story of who the model can be. Your modeling portfolio needs to show not just how you look like, but also it allow others to get a sense of your personality: the way you move, your level of confidence, your ability to talk on camera.
Every professional models present themselves with «style of life». To be a model not only in front of camera, but to be a good model in front of people. To be a good example for others.
This is why I think to be a model is not only about «static photo poses». You should DO some acts, if you want to be a successful in professional and personal life.
