What education or training do you need to become a model photographer?
You would need to take photography classes or have a natural ability when it comes to taking pictures.
You don't need any formal training to be a model since the agency that signs you will show you the ropes. The best type of real world training a model can get is through doing test shoots with a photographer. This will test a model's natural skill and presence in front of the camera. As far as doing a runway walk, a modeling agency will teach their new models how to properly do this.
