5. Do ask for a confirmation fax. If someone is
a legitimate lead or offers you a job or a photo
shoot ask if they would send "a confirmation
fax" or if they have a phone number where you
can direct a confirmation fax. If the people you
are dealing with say "no problem" or something
to that effect and do send a confirmation you

not in public. Look. Either you have what it is
that it takes to meet industry standards for a
model or you don't. And if you have what it
takes you won't see it in the mirror. It will be

better focused. And also remember people talk
to people. They may not say anything to you
but your booker or representative may have to
hear about it. So spare us all. Put the cellular
phone away. Act professional. And with a high
regard. You might even:get the call back.

7. Do show up on time. If it is a photo shoot,
casting call, or meeting with an agent: time is
important and sometimes very costly. And be
