For instance if you want to become a model then you require two fashion shots- one casual and one a little more formal or if you want to be a swim wear model, have swim wear shots, etc. Whatever be your persuasion you need to stick to it. It is good to be versatile but trying every different thing at one time will make you “Jack of All and Master Of none.� Take your own space; make some research on yourself as well as on different modeling agency and select that, which suits you.
