This week’s GaijinPot podcast is a nice wrap up on the Modeling in Japan series. The articles go into a lot more detail, but my interview with Anthony is a good intro, and covers a few things I haven’t written about yet. I added links to a few of the topics if you want to learn more about a given topic.

Here’s some of the stuff we cover:

  • Do you need contacts to break into the Japanese modeling market? (short answer, nah.)
  • Different types of modeling work available (there are a few!)
  • What will agents do and not do…

(Psssst… here’s the post on submitting to foreigner-specific agencies)

  • Finding photographers to shoot with
  • Super important makeup tips (yeah, for men too!)
  • Amateur versus professional work
  • Here are some products for men (as promised)
  • The male modeling market
  • Red flags and GWCs

Super fun chatting with Anthony. He edited out his epic dream of becoming the next Zoolander, but now at least he knows what kind of powder to use in his next video. 🙂
