Models pose for artists, photographers, or customers to help advertise a variety of products, including clothing, cosmetics, food, and cars. Having the right look and talent is inherited genetically. Professional models constantly look good in front of a camera, show the expression(s) needed on cue, show up on time, and make the shoot go quickly, efficiently, and successfully. The part after the genetics is what makes a professional model and leads to a career in modeling. If you are going to work in front of the camera you need to be photogenic and this you won't know until you do a test shoot. Acting is an art of self-discovery. Your craft is based on a close study of relationships, emotions, and actions, and your talent is seen in every gesture you make and every word you speak in front of the camera.
