Professional Modeling Techniques, Introduction (C/S297)An old tag line for a modeling school used to exclaim "learn to be a model...or just look like one." Those days are long gone and now models are every race, color, shape, weight, height, age and sex. Ad agencies don't have just "one type" they are looking for. In this class intended for personal enrichment, aspects of the modeling profession will be explored such as posing, concept development, building a portfolio, networking, and online sites that professionals use. Participants in this class will learn poise, presentation, attitude, work ethic, how to accept work when offered, how to find work in a competitive field, how to choose photographers, and how to spot a modeling scam from a legitimate agency. The course will include guest speakers who have worked in the profession as models, agents and photographers. The class will also focus on improving personal self-image and promoting self-esteem. The class is recommended not just for those who are thinking of entering the modeling field, but also pageant contestants, those who work with the public and desire a more commanding and confident presence, and those who want to improve their overall outlook toward life. Students must be at least 15 years of age. Any student under the age of 18 must have parental permission to attend the class. Adults of all ages are welcomed and encouraged to take the class. A photo session will be held as part of the class with the end results exhibited publicly including an opening reception. Taking this class will not guarantee you will become a working model but it will guarantee you will feel better about the person you see in the mirror every morning. Register early. Class size is limited to 12 students. Chris Loar instructs the class. Chris is a diverse, experienced model who works regularly in the Baltimore and DC print markets and travels throughout the country for paid modeling assignments.
