(1) Having the look and talent that someone needs (generally the client) bad enough for the project they are working on at that time that they will pay you for your time.
(2) Making life easier for the art director and the photographer so they will want to work with you, and not throw you out of their studio. And …
(3) Finally making sure the client, photographer, and art director know you want to work.
All modeling, except for some glamour, is client driven. Eventually there is no need for a model (or for that matter, a photographer) until a client has something to sell (a product, service, or idea) or in the case of editorial an idea to convey.
At the same time, the client becomes willing to part with the Rupees (the money stream) to accomplish his/her sales or editorial goals and a model is hired. Otherwise
So, when we look at different types of modeling we are looking at different classes of clients. For example, the Fashion Industry is dependent on using models in its advertising, promotion, and sales material.
Generally in certain top fashion market cities this can lead to many job possibilities and high fees.
So when considering a modeling career you must start by looking at the different types of modeling being demanded by clients, And the requirements for a given type of modeling and if your physical, talent and personality are right for that type of modeling.

2. Meanwhile if you are hoping to do commercial modeling (such as product or lifestyle) the requirements are much flexible.
3. Similarly if you want to be a glamour, or pin-up model, this area has its own set of requirements.
There are two approaches:
1) Therefore you get trained in a modeling institute like IIAM.
2) Similarly You go out and find the work yourself. As well as in both cases you must start with a TEST SHOOT
