Welcome to the wonderful world of glamour. Never before has there been so much opportunity for all, regardless of age, sex and looks. Why? Because now, virtually anybody with a little ambition and perseverance can be part of this exciting and developing industry.
The dictionary defines glamour as ´making the eyes see things as fairer than they are : fascination : enchantment: groomed beauty and studied charm. If you think about this ,then it is evident that glamour not only embraces those of us that are fortunate enough to have the looks to be considered glamorous, but also each individual may have that potential. More importantly, glamour is a business. Those who have the ability to project, not only others as glamorous, but also locations, circumstances, clothes, makeup, magazines, TV and films, as glamourous too can strive for this career!
Let´s look first at modelling, probably the most obvious glamour related activity. Catwalk models, photographic fashion models, catalogue models, girlie magazine models, male models, exhibition and display stand models, nude models, outsize models ,and the sub categories who are employed just to model only their hands or legs or busts or faces. In the category of glamour modelling alone the personnel needed to provide the infrastructure is extraordinarily diverse. Specialist glamour photographers, make up artists, hairdressers, set designers, location finders, dress and swimsuit designers and fitters, magazine and newspaper editorial and layout staff, advertising agency campaign creators, etc,etc. The list goes on and on.
In film and TV, glamour is utilized daily as well. It helps with network ratings and advertiser fees. The actors and actresses, whether stars or extras, will hope to look as glamorous as their part will allow. It is as much a boost to their self esteem and confidence as it is in the hope of getting noticed to further their careers. Again, they are aided by a woeful host of back up teams in the categories of make up, clothes, and hairdressers. Arguably most importantly of all, the team that shoots their most glamorous camera angles. Glamour is everywhere.
You can make it as a model, even if you haven’t got a fabulous figure. If you have just one glamorous feature, such as great legs, lovely face, wonderful eyes, or elegant hands. Even if you feel the rest of your body is not quite perfect, you can still enjoy the rewards of modelling. This applies to men as well. Male models make big money. Think of the glamour that a sexy male or female voice over on a TV or radio advertisement evokes. This is also another rewarding activity associated with modelling.
To get started, first consider your attributes. If you think you might have that certain something ,then start by seeing the top model agencies. They are always on the look out for the next talent. Otherwise, choose from the many other careers in the glamour industry. Either way, perseverance will pay off.
To sum it all up for you, glamour modelling is financially rewarding. It is a large team effort with a vast number of career opportunities for both sexes. Irrespective of looks, ability and perseverance offer the best opportunities to ´ make the eyes see things fairer than they are´.
