Before going to a modeling audition, know the audition requirements and have them at hand. There are those that are very specific when it comes to what is needed. Since many do turn up, it is better to have everything needed. As part of the elimination process, they will give no notice to those who do not have everything the audition demanded. If two photos were required, then that is what should be delivered. If the models are required to show up with their own makeup kits, then that is what they should have and not expect makeup to be provided.
They can have their own themes that have to be adhered to. For example it can require the models to assume the role of business persons. So models who know this beforehand have an edge compared to those who are not keen to know what the theme is and a common one is swim wear. Those models uncomfortable with wearing swim wear and getting photographed in them should not consider showing up because they will be too uncomfortable to do well.
Some are very particular about the kind of models that are needed. At times when the advertising is being put up, certain specifications will be highlighted. Some could be meant for strictly plus size models. If a petite model shows up for a plus size position, then it is going to be fruitless. If they specify a plus size model to come for the audition, then the clothes chosen will not be a good fit. If a petite model tries wearing a plus size model’s clothes, then chances of a perfect fitting are zero to none. Same applies to a plus size model who goes for an audition try out for petite models.
Showing up to a modeling audition in time is very wise. It is going to benefit both parties; those holding the auditions and those who are there for the auditions. For those holding the auditions, they do not have to accommodate those who show up late and still insist on doing the auditions thus increasing the stress levels of both parties. Those who show up in time are in lack of relaxing before the audition. Most models get really nervous before an audition and when they get to the modeling audition in time they can prepare themselves, thus gain confidence and suppress the nervousness at the same time.
Acting auditions resemble modeling audition is some ways. When going for an acting audition, showing up in time will give the actor or actress a breather and by the time they are going to say their lines, they will be confident enough and will be able to nail the audition and get a call back. Being able to get in to character is important and always exhibit confidence because that will own the role being casted.
