People have always been skeptical of modeling as a career choice. There are certain questions like payoffs, work schedule, lifestyle and of course age factor. We would like to answer a few here.
1. Well, modeling does not fall under top 10 most sought after jobs in India, but yes, payoffs are quite decent in this Industry. Even in your struggling days you can earn up to INR 5000 per photo shoot. The pay range varies and increases after every successful shoot. International models from India earn more than INR 10 Million (1 Crore) a year.
2. There are certain changes in terms of lifestyle and work schedule which is considered to be a bit chaotic in the modeling world. But once you get through it, you become habituated to your timings.
3. Fitness is the key- it’s a clear thing, stay fit to survive. To fetch good brands you need to be in shape. Taking care of one’s body in a way is good for your own self.
4. A visible transformation can be seen in body language, dressing sense, walking style and personality.
