The modelling industry in Ghana has produced some great editorial and runway models like Roselyn Ashkar, Belinda Baidoo and Victoria Michaels among others. If you want to start modelling while you’re in University, you’ll need to know what exactly you’re getting yourself into. You need to know what type of modelling you’ll be good at; maybe you’ll have to try a little bit of everything and then come to a conclusion. Before you make any move yet, these are some of the types of modelling you can explore in Ghana.
Editorial models tell stories through pictures. These models are used for beauty shoots, used by designers if they want someone to wear their clothes and take pictures for them and are perfect to showcase skincare brands. In Ghana, height is not usually required when it comes to taking pictures, especially for beauty or skincare brands.
They’re the ones usually who catwalk on a stage. You may be able to build yourself in this by walking for campus fashion shows (once they’re allowed). Once you’re confident about your walk, you can start going for castings for bigger shows like the Glitz fashion show. Usually, big shows like that require you to have a height of 5”7 or 5”8 and above.
3. Commercial models
Commercial models do a bit of everything. This modelling type is the most open to diverse and new talent. They are of any age, size and height since their work varies from advertising a product to taking pictures and even to runway.
4. Bikini models
These models specialize in showing off lingerie, bikinis and other undergarments.
5. Parts model
They usually model their arms, feet, hands and legs. A hand model can book a job that requires showing off jewellery and a shoe model can book a job showcasing shoes. Parts models can also book skincare/beauty brands and nail brands.
There are different types of modelling to explore and they usually involve taking pictures or runway. If you really want to do this, you should try your hands on it.
