Posing for a photo shoot is always a difficult thing for a new model to accomplish. I’ve found that most new models tend to feel self-conscious at a first shoot and quite often freeze when they first get onto the set. I think there’s a common misconception that modelling is easy and you really don’t have to do very much to make the magic happen. This is definitely not true. I always ask every new model I work with to practice posing in front of a mirror before the shoot. It’s good to have an idea of how you look and get comfortable with moving from position to position. Reading glamour magazines, finding glamour photos on the internet and having a go at recreating the poses is a fantastic way to give yourself a head start at a first shoot. Yes, it feels silly but you’d be amazed at how a little practice can make a huge difference.

I used to be a Glamour Model myself and so I enjoy helping new models with their poses. It’s fun to give direction and it’s rewarding watching a new model gain confidence and begin to throw her own poses into the mix. I remember my own first modelling shoot very well. I was testing for a local photographer who was regularly published in most of the men’s top shelf magazines at the time. I think I must have been a born exhibitionist because I got a real thrill from whipping off my clothes and posing in sexy lingerie. Thanks to that photo shoot, I went on to work with that photographer on a regular basis and he recommended me to his other photographer friends. I wouldn’t even say I was in the same league as Katie Price or Sam Fox (showing my age now), but confidence really does go a long, long way!

So girls, if you want to be successful, practice, practice, practice!
