Applicants should register online AND bring a photo, like a professional headshot or composite card, to leave with the show producers. Experience is not required, but definitely put your best foot forward! Dress to impress, and be prepared to demonstrate your runway walk.

If you're brand new to runway work and need to get a headshot done, here are some tips from a professional photographer:

  • Dress in neutral colors like white, black, or earth tones, and avoid busy patterns.
  • Start with basic makeup and bring your supplies in case your photographer wants to amp up your look.
  • Always do one final mirror check before sitting down for the shoot. That cowlick you hate might need some last-minute adjusting.
  • Spend the money to hire a professional photographer! These photos will represent you, so they should be impeccable.
  • Know your angles, but ultimately trust your photographer to direct you. Their expertise is what you're paying for, after all.
