How does a really shy person become a model?

The photographer might help things along and try to guide you in

certain directions, but a good model is expected to be more than a

passive participant in the photoshoot. The first step is to decide

what kind of modelling you want to do. There are many levels of

modelling, not just high-end fashion modelling. Catalog and print

ads (for coupons or food advertisements for example)or

instructional videos and ad campaigns can be a less competitive

market and a good entry into the business. Watching 'America's Next

Top Model' might be useful to get an idea of the kinds of things

photographers and fashion editors are looking for in a model as

well as the environment (although likely exaggerated) that models

might be subject to. Signing up for modelling and/or drama classes

would also be a good step to help with shyness and provide an

opportunity to practice getting over fear of embarrassment. The

most important thing, though, is to talk to people and do a lot of

research (internet or over the phone) before signing anything or

handing anyone any money. Call modelling schools and see if you can

set up an appointment to just learn more about the business. I'm

sure they'll have a lot more specific resources. Good luck.
