Unleashing Your Talent

Do you dream of becoming a supermodel, or a famous TV actor or presenter? Or do you simply want to boost your confidence and self-esteem for work, school and when meeting people?

Whichever, you have come to the right place.

At Tanya Powell, we have been helping aspiring models and actors get their careers off to a great start for over thirty years. We’ve introduced new stars and launched new talents. We’ve given them the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. Which has made Tanya Powell probably the most reputable, established and sought-after acting and modelling school and agency in Melbourne.

We help our students develop poise and presentation, we help aspiring models in developing confidence and self-esteem. Aimed to create the modelling and acting stars of tomorrow, we know how to prepare you for high fashion runway or photography, advertising or editorial; for stage, screen or tele-prompter. Many models and actors trained by us have made it big in in Australia and overseas.

The modelling business is highly competitive and requires total professionalism. Clients need different sorts of people for different jobs, particularly when it comes to advertising and photography – it’s not only the tall, slim models you see at international fashion shows. But what they all demand are people who are trained and competent: people who know what they are doing on the runway or in front of the camera; people who know how to present themselves and look their best, both live and in photos. They haven’t got time to waste on teaching people how to prepare, pose or walk. That’s why we offer a complete preparation and thorough guidance to our models and actors, to help them achieve their aims and dreams. We have been in the industry for over three decades now, and have successfully launched many highly successful careers.

For aspiring actors, it is vital to know how to successfully audition for TV commercials, TV series and dramas, presenter work and movie roles. You will be tutored in small groups by experienced casting directors and consultants, directors and media producers.

Professional Model Training Facility

Our purpose made professional training facility also makes a huge difference in model and actor training. Our in-house world-class training facilities include full-sized rehearsal mirrors and multiple make-up stations as well as cat-walk ramps. We supply high quality make-up and premium hair and make-up appliances. Our fully-equipped photo and video studio has big screen live playback. We have in-house autocue training. These facilities, together with our expert teachers, will help you to quickly master the techniques and methods of acting, modelling and the fashion industry. With us, you will quickly transform into your best version. And you will be stunned by just how good we can make you look in photos.

Casting, Auditions, Portfolios

Making a good impression at castings and auditions is all-important, and is one of the most important things to learn. Insufficient preparation or an apparent lack of self-confidence will prominently become evident during auditions. We will help you in overcoming nervousness and to present yourself at your best. Our fashion tips and techniques will help you to confidently face auditions and stand out successfully, and make sure you look great in photos. You will get expert advice and tips from successful models, actors, photographers, casting agents, directors and various other talent bookers. With us, you will be geared up with everything that it takes to succeed.

A model portfolio is essential to your success. We provide several professional photo shoots as part of the course, at no extra charge. By the time you have completed your course, you will have many photographic “looks” to choose from, including head (beauty) shots, fashion shots, location (outdoor) shots and product/advertising shots. All studio shoots take place in our custom-built studios, and our world class photographers make their prints and discs available to students at very competitive rates.

Modelling Tips and Techniques that Work

Every industry has some “tricks of the trade”: easy tips and techniques that can make a huge difference. Modelling and acting are no different.  Our training and tips for the fashion and entertainment industries will help you on your way. We offer training programs for both female and male modelling and acting aspirants; for teens, twenties and above. This makes us a destination for models who aim to make it big.
