Casting Models for Bahamas 2016

bahamas

This shoot is for an art nude photo book, taking place on a small tropical island in The Bahamas. We will fly a chartered plane and stay at a private estate for a week of modeling.

I have arranged one week of exclusive access to a private estate, with a 5-bedroom house, giant pool, rooftop patio, two jacuzzi bath tubs, and plenty of space to shoot; for an entire week. With no neighbors nearby, we can shoot on the grounds and better yet, head to the pristine beach.

Tips for Using Model Mayhem: Apply for a Casting Call

I’ve been using a site called Model Mayhem almost since it started. “Anyone with a sincere desire to work in the modeling industry” can join the site, so you will see all echelons of talent on there. As a model, you want to set yourself apart especially when applying for a casting call.

Before applying, make sure you have your portfolio in order with some clear photos.

When you type out your application (usually in the form of a message to the person who created the casting) your choice of words is important.

Here are some phrases that are commonly used, but really don’t add much:

  • I always give 100%
  • I’m interested in your casting
  • I meet all your requirements

Although these sound like good things to say, they really don’t set you apart. Anyone else who is applying to the casting is interested, so that goes without saying. And, nobody is going to claim to give less than 100% so that’s not too specific either.

A better approach is to highlight how you fit the casting. If the casting has a height requirement, for example, you might want to state your height. If it says you need to be able to start at 6 AM, you can let them know that you’re able to do that.

Finally, an application that looks custom (that means not a generic copy-and-paste that could be meant for anyone) is going to stand out.
