First, if you plan to work in any catalog modeling jobs, you must learn how to do poses that show off the outfit.

Either way, your talent shines through when you know how to pose correctly.
“The Company Expects You to Know How to Pose”
When you begin to get jobs as a model, you’ll find yourself in many different posing situations.
For example, you might be one of those women modeling fashion skirts. Or, you might find yourself posing in pants for either a commercial or fashion studio session.
No matter what the scenario, the company expects you to know how to perform these fashion poses. And, you will once you study these basic posing tips.
It doesn’t matter if you are wearing…
- regular pants
- stretchy pants
- dress slacks
- or even shorts
These modeling poses are easier said than done, so you must follow the system completely and practice what you learn.
Remember to keep your head tipped backward slightly, shoulders square and feet apart.
Your hands should usually be on the hips or in the pockets.
Your air of confidence and self assurance will be shown by graciously expressing yourself by using body language and facial expressions along with your poses.
Show Off Those Long Legs!
Your modeling pose in pants will be much more exciting if you are fortunate enough to have long legs.
So, if you have long legs, show them off & use them.
But, if you don’t, don’t worry. Most of these poses still ring true.
Remember, you’re actually showing off the pants.
But, don’t fret if your legs are short. There are many short models who have made it big in the modeling world today.
Learning How to Pose in Pants – or Anything Else
Just as with anything else in life, posing is a process. It takes imagination and ingenuity.
So, you’ll find some posing ideas work. But some poses don’t work for your particular model look.
Don’t be discouraged.
Just keep the very best poses and throw out the others.
With time, you’ll find that posing comes more and more natural to you the more you practice.
Keep in mind that learning how to properly pose for photos can give you a great edge over the competition.
And, new ideas will come more freely!
Experience in Model Posing?
There is just no substitute for experience in modeling. Every famous model went through this process at one time or another.
And, at one time or another they realized catalog modeling can be both physically and mentally demanding.
But, they succeeded because of their look and willingness to perfect their craft. You should too!
This is always the key – and I’ll never stop saying it. Yes, there will always be work involved.
“If someone tells you that you can achieve success without work – work is what you’ll be without.”
Confusing? Don’t worry, you don’t have to remember it word for word!
Make your modeling poses fun and natural. This is the secret sauce to beautiful pictures. – Bob
