Our aim is to provide quality professional training within a positive and friendly environment. This is an opportunity to gain confidence as well as industry skills and knowledge. This is an ideal programme for those who want the most up-to-date industry training or who simply wish to have that model look.
UNDERSTANDING THE MODELLING INDUSTRY
How does an Agency really work? What is a portfolio? You are your own business! This session covers procedures, policies and a model's responsibilities to clients. Learn how to dress appropriately for castings and auditions. Discover the essential items every model must have in their ‘Model Bag’.
PHOTOPOSING & PHOTO SHOPPING
This module covers the theory and etiquette of photographic work. You will have your first professional session with a photographer. These photos will become the foundation of your first portfolio. *
PARADE WALKING WORKSHOPS
From the basics of catwalk etiquette, to choreographed routines, you will learn and practise the finer details of showing and selling a garment. Understanding backstage etiquette and developing teamwork on and off stage helps enhance a professional performance.
TELEVISION AND AUDITION TECHNIQUES
From casting terms and information to a simulated commercial casting, this practical class is filmed and later viewed by yourself with constructive feedback given on your performance.
Skincare includes skin analysis and discovering suitable products, in order to show the way to healthy glowing skin, an important part of the ‘successful model look’.
Our professional stylist will recommend how to create greater flexibility of styles to suit all occasions and situations. This will help you to change your ‘model look’ and so become more versatile. Due to ristricted time, we ask students either get their hair cut by their local hairdresser, or we can possibly arrange two at a time during lunch breaks, or make appointments after class at 3.30pm. Any colour will need to be done in your own time at the end of the day. We use and recommend Joseph 0414 261 888 (He is located in Sheraton on the Park Hotel, opposite Hyde Park, Sydney).

We teach you the techniques which will enable you to present yourself more credibly in your professional and personal roles. You will learn the ‘tricks of the trade’ for castings, television, catwalk and photographic model make-up. We use and recommend REVLON products.
Etiquette and behaviour demanded by different situations are broken into simple steps. Courtesy and consideration are the things that stamp us as civilised.
