Almost every model submission has a section where you can talk about yourself. Some will ask for a specific resume or Bio. It's always a good idea to never leave these sections blank. Think of it as your last ditch effort to get noticed by the Agency or Client you want to work with.
Let's Get Right To It - Here are few tips on writing a great (short and to the point) Model Bio:
- Let your personality shine. Our clients want to book promotional models who will bring life to their event and create a fun atmosphere. Your personality matters.
- Name dropping is always a good idea. List some of the brands that you have represented. If you can cover multiple industries, even better.
- Industry matters! Include the names of big industry photographer, shows, co-modeled, was managed by, photoshoots, events you’ve worked. Showing variety will demonstrate to our clients how versatile you are.
- Get to the point. No need to add a ton of fluff to your bio paragraph. Try to keep it to around 100 words (give or take) and share the important highlights. If your bio is too long, you will lose their interest. Keep it brief and engaging.
- Proper grammar matters. Take the time to review and edit your bio for proper punctuation, capitalization, and general grammar. There’s a free Chrome plug-in called Grammarly that can help if it’s not your strong suit. (It’s certainly saved me a few times!)
When it comes down to do it, a company will probably hire a model based on his or her written bio. If you take care in writing it, they’ll know you’ll put the effort in for their brand too.
