A lot of girls have goals to be in a magazine but they don't know how to make it happen. Here are 3 tips:
1. LOOK at the magazine. Understand what type of shots the magazine uses, is it an Urban magazine, what do the clothing look like, how is the hair, the pose, the model, the makeup. This can tell you what they look for and what the concept of the magazine is and although each issue is different, each issue needs models.
2. Submit: Submit the magazine a photo of your body, your face and then you doing something editorial looking. Talking on the phone, laughing, even cooking, something to show your personality and energy. A Smile is nice. (Girls don't smile enough)
3. Research who is the photographer of the editorials in the magazine, look in the front of the magazine at the magazine Masthead and you will see a list of editors. Submit your images to the photo editor, bookings editor, fashion editor, featured editor, and include a note that says a little about your experience, and highlights that you would be a great model for the magazine.
Submit to all types of magazines too, not just fashion ones, remember that ALL magazines need model, even Knitting magazines.
