Modeling & Acting: Honing Your Craft

In any career, hobby or sport, it’s important for you to hone your craft, if you want to be most successful at it.

Wouldn’t you agree?

The same thing goes for both Modeling & Acting.

Some people think that models & actors/actresses are born, not made. This is partly true. Just because you were born to do something, doesn’t mean you know how to do it properly, and everyone needs practice.

Behind the Scenes - Kimberly Edwards, Canadian model & Canadian actress - KapowModels.comIf you are in the Los Angeles area and want to pursue your acting career seriously, you may want to check out a Los Angeles Acting School at which, you may enroll in some classes not only to see if you’re really interested in this type of career, but to hone your acting style and expand your skills in such a way that make you essential on sets everywhere.
