What is Lifestyle Modeling Anyhow?
Basically, lifestyle modeling is pretty much exactly as it sounds. It involves mainly editorial or advertising “slice of life” pictures.
If you can show expressions and follow directions you can do this real life type modeling.
With that said, if you have the look you can engage in both lifestyle modeling and fashion so this will give you more opportunities for model jobs if you are willing to lower your aim a bit.
At least you’re working at something you love to do, right? Once you learn to model and exhaust your other options, lifestyle might be a breath of fresh air.
Try it out and see if posing for lifestyle pictures is a career worth shooting for. Best of luck. – Bob Pardue
