About the Book

The Canadian Model's Resource takes a broad range of topics relevant to new models, expands them, and organizes them into an easy-to-reference guide. From getting the attention of agencies to what a model needs to know before signing a contract, this guide will greatly improve the model's odds of success.

The style encourages the reader to become a student of modelling; absorbing knowledge, spotting changes and continuing to develop long after the book's completion. Each chapter finishes with a summary of key points, and "homework" (small assignments for the model to apply to their own personal situation).

The reader will finish the book prepared to meet any agency or client and speak on a professional level. They will know the importance of proper makeup — or lack of makeup in many cases — and what they should keep packed and ready-to-go at a moment's notice (including this book).
