Here’s a surprising fact. Styling is one of the few industries where there are more jobs for competent, versatile stylists than there are stylists to fill them.
The “Professional Photo, Film, TV & Personal Stylist’s” Course is designed to provide you with an in-depth knowledge of all areas of styling. It’s also intended to help build your stylist’s portfolio to show to clients and, if you wish, as a stepping stone into full-time employment in the many industries where stylists are required.
From your first assignments, you are developing your own style ideas, learning about the market and working towards obtaining your first client.
The Course is not only structured to teach you the techniques of freelance styling. It’s also intended to help you obtain clients and see you get paid for your professional efforts. Stated simply, you’ll know how to work as a stylist in a huge range of areas for the thousands of individuals, fashion companies, advertising agencies, television networks, magazine and internet publishers and retail outlets that require the help of a professional stylist.
Further, you’ll know how to profit from all the other lesser-known but highly lucrative
areas of freelance styling. For example, image consultancy, food styling, room set styling, colour analysis and catalogue styling. You’ll even discover how to work with animals.
There is an insatiable demand for professional freelance styling. 99% of advertising agencies, fashion and lifestyle magazines, TV shows, business and corporate identities and celebrities rely heavily on freelance stylists. Their work is used in
catalogues, brochures, magazines, TV commercials, live concerts, TV programming, public relations and by people requiring a particular “image”.
And, if you prefer a sales career, selling or working with fashion garments, accessories or merchandise, your Diploma and your training and qualifications will prove of great benefit. What’s more, you’ll have the start of your all-important portfolio demonstrating your styling skills. Your portfolio is the first thing any prospective employer will wish to see.
When you know what the craft requires you will have a highly marketable skill which you can use for a full or part-time career or as a profitable sideline. Professional styling offers one of the few remaining opportunities for individual freedom, self-expression and financial gain.
And, as you’ll discover, it’s also a lot of fun and can lead some stylists to varying degrees of fame and fortune.
The “Professional Photo, Film, TV & Personal Stylist’s” Course gives you the opportunity to be your own boss and to choose the assignments that most suit you. As a freelance stylist, you can also start small and build your reputation and income job by job.
Styling is one of the few professions that does not discriminate in any way. You can be of any age, sex, race or religion and become a successful stylist. In fact, your individuality can be of real benefit. For example, a younger stylist will often be more familiar with teen trends where an older stylist will feel more equipped to assist more mature clients. As a professional stylist, you can also work from home and to a large degree you can choose your own clients and the nature of the work you accept.
