How Do You Become a Working Image Consultant in South Africa?

Image consultants are charged with helping their clients cultivate an updated and professional appearance. This may include working with businesses or private clients to make sure that their appearance and communication skills are appropriate for the industry in which they operate. Many image consultants decide to specialise in a specific area, such as working with corporates, or with celebrities.

Whatever specialty you decide to venture into, you’ll need more than an eye for fashion and a penchant for colour co-ordination to succeed in this competitive industry. While these are the building blocks of any naturally gifted image consultant, you will need something extraordinary to set yourself apart in a sea of competition in the sector.

One of the best ways to get a good start on your journey to becoming a successful and working image consultant is to invest in the technical training required. By investing in a sound education, you already set yourself apart from the many other aspiring hopefuls looking to break into the industry. After all, your clients put their trust in you to help them cultivate their image. They pay you to make sure that they look their best, and you need to deliver.

I am the designated photographer for the only internationally and nationally accredited make-up training institution which is celebrating is 52 years of operation. I love to experiment with the power of photography, specialising in conceptual & fashion, although I love shooting anything that challenges me.
