Descrizione

Rich’s personal goal with the Model Bible is to help female models of every category: (Fashion / Couture, Print / Glamour, Commercial, Plus-sized, Health / Fitness, Parts, Kids and Teenage) not only learn how to get signed with a strong agency, but also to make sure that their agent(s) and or manager(s) have their best interests in furthering their careers. The Model Bible is a book that is geared strictly toward helping female models take their career to the highest level possible.
The Model Bible is focused on helping female models of all different sizes and shapes attain financial success in everything from Couture to Catalog modeling, and also become savvy, self-respecting women who understand that modeling can serve as the foundation for them to build a strong personal brand, and thus, in turn, open doors to any number of business opportunities.
The Model Bible is for models that are serious and want to be trained and educated in the three core areas that we think necessary for them to build a successful professional career: Business, Physical, and Emotional. Training in these three vital areas allows models to attain control of their careers and their lives in order to make informed professional decisions at all times.
As far as Business is concerned the book covers in detail: interviewing, contracts, negotiating, networking and marketing. The Physical aspects of modeling addressed are: grooming, nutrition, exercise, wardrobe, hair/make-up, runway and posing. The Emotional side of modeling is discussed in terms of: self-exploration, acknowledging fear, relaxation, listening and self-respect.

This is a very realistic approach of how to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. It’s a very nice read and anyone interested in this career should read it.

If you’re looking to start a career in modeling, I can’t recommend author, Rich Celenza’s Model Bible enough. In the book Rich went into detail on how men and women of all ages can start a career in modeling regardless of their size or gender and discussed various opportunities for models. He dished on the top modeling schools and agencies, and even has a questionnaire with over 50 questions to help you decipher whether or not a career in modeling is for you.

Candace Anderson, Writer

The Model Bible is undeniably the most informative guide to modeling. Whether you are a novice or pro this book will help you with any question about this industry. At this stage of my life my career path has changed over to the arts but if I would of had this book to guide me through, I may have still been in modeling today.

Lori Hagstrom, Artista

Interesting, intriguing and a great guide for any aspiring model. I would recommend this book to any upcoming model that is beginning their journey.

Gylwerd Sevilla, Model/Fashion Designer

FORWARD

When my friend Rich Celenza told me he was putting the finishing touches to his Modeling Bible book, his epic on how-to-break-into-and-thrive-in-the-modeling–business, I told him straight away that I wanted to write the forward - because any book he would be writing about the business of modeling would be like no other written on the topic. Rich is just that kind of guy. He’s that committed, that knowledgeable and that well informed.

When it comes to the how to of getting into the modeling industry, including what you need to know, who to you need to know and who and what you need to avoid, Rich is your Go-To Guy. He knows how to navigate the business so that modeling can, and will become a successful career for anyone that aspires to do the hard work, take it to the next level and make it happen.

Rich knows that modeling is first and foremost a business, because he lived it. He also knows that often times aspiring models get blinded by the lights and action, and don’t necessarily see themselves as fashion entrepreneurs.

Modeling is about mastering the skills of modeling, and not just on the runway, or at go-sees. And, because being a model is mostly about the business aspect of the industry, Rich didn’t write this book to tell his readers about where to look and how to tilt their head. He wrote The Model Bible to clearly and succinctly inform the next generation of soon-to-be models about the business; the skills they need, the expertise and business resources that are vital to having a 360 degree approach to success.

Born in Chicago, Rich was literally raised in the fashion industry, thanks to the legacy his father’s family brought with them to the U.S. from Vasto, Italy, almost a century ago. With most of his immediate family working as designers, tailors and models, Rich spent big swaths of his childhood in a front row seat to the family business, at his aunt and uncle’s clothing factory, drinking in all the knowledge, insight and expertise he could about the business of fashion, and how to break in and become successful. Even taking the plunge himself with his own successful modeling career, and that of his youngest daughter, who at age 9, under his mentorship, became one of the of the best known mini-couture runway models in the United States at just nine years old.

With Rich at the helm, and this book in your hands, he’s now your personal mentor and tour guide to becoming successful in the modeling industry. And, here’s why; Rich does all the heavy lifting for you by providing you with lists of agencies, designers and industry terms. The inside track on what designers and modeling agencies are really looking for. What they buy? Who they chose and why? The documentary films you should watch for an insider’s look. Who the important designers are and how and why they become successful? The important fashion websites you need to know about and what scams to be beware of online and much more.

Ask Rich Celenza what the modeling business is about and he’ll tell you, Modeling is primarily about branding and marketing for mainstream agencies and mastering your professional career by creating your own unique style.

CHAPTER ONE

Bio - Rich Celenza Jr.

Rich Celenza is someone who was born into the fashion / entertainment industry. His father’s family can claim almost a century in the fashion industry. Originating in the town of Vasto in Italy, they came to eventually own and operate the largest garment shop in the city of Chicago. As a little boy Rich spent a great deal of time at his aunt and uncle’s clothing factory learning about the garment industry, in fact, most of his immediate family members were tailors, designers and models.

Rich’s father didn’t have an interest in the garment industry so he went out and opened his own restaurant / nightclub, getting Rich involved in his business from a very young age by teaching him how to book talent (musical acts, comedians). Rich grew up checking out acts of the likes of Frank Sinatra, James Brown, Madonna, Prince, Lionel Richie, Barry Manilow, Carole King, Tower of Power, Bernie Mac, Sam Kinison, Andrew Dice Clay and hundreds of others. As he grew into his later teens, Rich decided to follow in his families’ footsteps into fashion, going into modeling and graduating from Barbizon Modeling School in Chicago. After graduating, he soon made his way into acting, writing, directing and eventually producing full feature films, shorts and commercials.

In between developing film projects, Rich found himself always wanting to help struggling up and coming talent because he understood not only how hard it is to break into the entertainment and fashion industries, but also how much dishonesty surrounds these businesses. All the while Rich started working with his youngest daughter, who eventually became one of the best known runway models in the United States at just nine years of age. Modeling schools soon started to take notice of Rich’s training techniques and he was asked to act in a consulting role with their instructors. It wasn’t long before he was being noticed by many professionals in the fashion industry and was being chosen by independent designers and fashion events to help them cast for major fashion shows. At about this time Rich was also asked to start speaking at Film Schools and Modeling Schools.

Over the course of these experiences Rich realized that more and more modeling students who graduated from modeling schools didn’t know what to actually do after they graduated. Rich also realized there are many girls out there who have huge potential but can’t afford to go to modeling school, and that’s when he realized that he had another passion in addition to filmmaking - finding a way to help up and coming trained models along with untrained girls take their careers to the next level.
