Disclaimer: I'm NOT a professional; these are my opinions and my opinions only and based on my own experiences in model photography. I am NOT a professional writer, these written format pieces are meant for purely and primarily shared knowledge from my experiences as a model photographer. It is not my intent to have a perfectly written article, if you don't like my writing please report this article to the nearest college to make corrects (or yourselves) and send those corrections at Chris@ChrisAdval.com and I'll make those changes if they do not interfere with the content. My focus is to give the content as soon as possible by any means instead of not giving the content at all (tips). Again I am not a great writer but I get my points across. The following tips are NOT meant for everyone for every situation, take the tips that you know that would work for YOU and anyway you choose. This is only a guide of tips, not strict rules that every or all persons should follow, these tips are meant for serious, business aware and pro-efficient people.

What Makes or Breaks a Model’s Success? PART 3: Pose/Facial Expression
Knowledge and ability in diverse posing and facial expressions...
Knowing a great deal of diverse posing and facial expression can give you a leg up on competition that lacks it. It would increase your ability to getting more clients because having a diverse pose/expression list is a huge boost in having more opportunities in creating better and more interesting photos.

When starting, or before starting to model it would benefit you and your career to do some heavy research into different facial expressions and poses. Better yet learning some skills that require you to know your body well would benefit your poses and facial expressions, such as acting, dancing, and yoga.
Observe, observe, observe! By observing and having strong attention to details on model photography would benefit you by learning new poses and facial expressions you may want to add to your pose/expression list. Some may work for you, some may not… and note not every pose or facial expression works for everyone; some may only work well for one person and not for another. Experiment yourself in a mirror or even in photoshoots, and see the end results if that does work for you. If you don't grow your pose/expression list you won't grow as a model and especially your career.
