Bad posture is an unrecognized flaw in many people. However, for models, posture is a harmful flaw. Always remember to keep your back straight and your shoulders up. Slouching affects the mood of the photograph and enlarges the appearances of your stomach. In addition to your back and shoulders, always remember to flex your stomach muscles. Despite your weight or state of shape, your abdomen will appear more toned if you flex.
Although sometimes concentration enhances a good photograph, obvious concentration can distract and often ruin a good photograph as well. Do not hold your breath for a modeling pose; always remember to breathe and appear at ease.
SOME MAY SAY, ‘YOUR CHILD HAS THE LOOK’. Let me say, that there is no special ‘look’. The look is whatever the client is looking for, for their project. It may require a special ethnicity or a special size, hair or skin color. We have booked thousands of jobs for kids, and there is no “special look” that fits them all. If an ad, or a commercial is to appear in a certain part of the country, the needs may be totally different. An ad for Atlanta, may require different looks or kids than say Miami or New York. But for the most part, all kids will have a market value in a contemporary market today. PARENTS WILL HAVE TO CALL OUR OFFICE, NOT THE CHILD: 404-636-1974, and schedule a time to bring their child in to be seen by an agent. The parent will be asked questions to determine their level of commitment, and/or interests. The parent (not the child) is one of the most important factors in determining whether or not we choose to represent the child.
For established talent looking for representation, simply call 404-636-1974 and schedule a time to come in for an audition/interview with an agent.At your interview and evaluation, you may be asked to walk, pose and read a script, along with answering a series of questions. You may be told ‘no’. If you are okay, but not good enough to move forward you may be asked to come back and try again. Or, if you do very well, but not good enough to begin the career right now (and most aren’t), then you will need more substance – more training. If this is the case then the William Reynolds Atlanta talent agency may offer to pay for any and all training necessary. Of course, we would not get involved financially if we did not see a light at the end of the tunnel for you. If you have ever in your life been to another agency, you will know that the WILLIAM REYNOLDS AGENCY IS QUITE POSSIBLY THE ONLY AGENCY IN THE COUNTRY THAT PAYS FOR TRAINING FOR A BEGINNER.
Our goal ... Is to provide the film and television industry with good, marketable talent that show pride in what they do, make Dependability and dedication to their part, whatever it may be, work for the producer/director. By doing this, at the same time, the agency is providing an environment of access to virtually everything in film and TV to the models and actors that we represent. If there is a secret to success in this industry, it is that in order for an actor/model to work... they must be seen.
Symmetry is officially out in the modeling world. When posing, make sure to differentiate your arms and legs with asymmetrical poses. If you have one arm long and straight by your side, make sure the other arm is bent. Whether a big or small angle, the bend will make the modeling pose look more real, less artificial. Continue the asymmetry to your legs. If one leg is locked straight, give the other leg a casual bend.
When you're first starting out (and from that point on!), good photography is important. Your photos are your selling point. They most often create the first impression. A viewer will make judgements about your personality, your professionalism, your eye for detail, and your level of expertise based on what they see in your photos. You owe it to yourself to only put up your very best.
