How to become a model in South Africa
5. Use social media
Because the modeling industry is all about who you know, use social media to begin creating more relationships. Engage in social activities. Make a list of the models you admire, the brands you admire, the fashion photographers you admire, and the agencies you would like to work with. Then start following them and forming relationships with them.
Finally, the biggest social media advise I can give you is to be yourself. Don't attempt to be the perfect version of yourself online—just be yourself. Don't worry about making your posts perfect; simply post them! Examine what works, make changes, and try again. The more you practice, the more polished your postings will be.
