I hope you guys enjoyed the video! As mentioned I have included some images as to what the difference is between commercial modeling versus high fashion modeling. Don’t be afraid to try both, because it takes a while before we find out what our niche is. You are very much able to do both, it is also great to be versatile in this industry but it also key to identify what our strong components are. The reason why this is crucial is because an agency or agent likes to be clear as to how they are going to market you in order to make money. I hope this was a big help for those of you who are trying to break in the modeling industry. Dont forget to add me on social media @afiyabennett and for those of you who didn’t get a chance, check out my new video modeling for Mac Cosmetics in post below this one.

  2. Hey, I see where you’re a model. I’ve recently been signed with a modeling agency too. I am instructed to bring a pair of heels and a high fashion outfit for my first photoshoot. The photos will be used in my portfolio. Do you have any suggestions as to what I should wear?


    1. I think you should bring black skinny jeans, a black chiffon shirt and a black leather jacket, simple but high fashion. I love Zara they always have high fashion clothes that always gets the job done for test shoots. Good luck on your shoot!
