In 1950 Daphne trained at a model school in London the like of which doesn’t exist today.  “I was able to do that as I lived close by  and was in a position to attend full-time.  Now with the internet I can share my skills and experience with you wherever you are in the world.  I want to help models of any age get off to the best start possible”.

Here’s what you’ll get from the Daphne Selfe Academy:


A 6-week course where you work at your own pace.

The training is released online in weekly sections to the private member’s area of the Daphne Selfe Academy at  www.daphneselfe.com.

At the beginning of each week, a new module is released and you get to decide if you want to work through a little each day or dive in for a concentrated go – it’s up to you.

You will get written tutorials and worksheets – Daphne calls them ‘Model sheets’!  Including images, videos for your learning style and lifestyle.  Plus the opportunity to ask Daphne questions directly and receive personal feedback via video link or webinar.

Each week is broken down into easy to follow segments like building blocks so that by the end you will be prepared mentally and physically for the modelling world.

You can go over and over it again as much as you like.

What will the course be covering each week?

Week 1 – We start off looking at the different types of modelling and what sort is going to be best for you. Then we analyse your own unique physical attributes and how to make the best of them and be more confident and aware of what makes you beautiful.

Week 2 – Here we start to get down to the nitty-gritty of what it takes for a successful and long career in modelling. This module is about training you to have the posture, body, beauty regimes and diet necessary for the hard and rewarding work of modelling. Here I let you in on the routines, disciplines and tips I have picked up through my lifetime. All in a natural and healthy way of course – as I’m well known for!

Week 3 – This week is about looking at the character traits, skills and mental outlook that is important for a successful life as a professional model. For the areas we are going to cover I want to you to take a good look at yourself and assess where you are currently and where you can improve further to be the best you can be.

Week 4 – Being a model is a skill, a form of acting. It has been said that feelings and emotions come through from a lifetime of experience but it is also like a young person singing an emotional song well beyond their age or experience, you can learn to do it with practice – whatever your actual age, that’s just a number! But practice does mean it takes time to get it right and more importantly so that when you are nervous you just do it without even having to think. You’ll learn and then practise poses and facial expressions, how to work to a camera and walking the catwalk and more.

Week 5 – This week I let you in on how the industry works, how to approach and deal with agents, casting sessions and clients plus how to watch out and be alert for the not so nice side of the industry. Have you been scouted? Would you like to be? What do modelling agencies expect and want? What to do and importantly what not to do.

Week 6 – What are your dreams and goals – do they need to be rewritten or adjusted with all you have learnt in the previous 5 weeks?  We’ll make a plan to move forward and you will interact with me to go over any questions or areas that you would like to discuss from the course and in relation to a career for yourself. It is now that you can submit completed coursework (if you’re ready) to apply for your Daphne Selfe Academy Graduation Certificate.

Academy Feedback


Introducing Karina


My name is Karina and I’ve done the Daphne Selfe Academy course and I’m a member of Daphne’s Model Family. The course provides you with all the essentials that you need before you go out and start your modelling career.  I feel confident, I feel ready and I feel like I’ve got the emotional stability and the practical skills and the practical understanding of what it means to work as a model. The bit I enjoyed most about the course was getting to know Daphne.  It’s a really personal course and she gives you all of her life experiences and all of her life skills.  It makes you feel as if you’re ready and living the experience. Even if I put modelling aside the course has given me so much confidence and so much self-worth and believe in myself.  I walk differently, I stand differently, I speak differently and I look people in the eye.  The course is just fantastic people skills. What surprised me most about the course is how Daphne is just always there for me.  It’s so personal and it feels like everything is just tailor-made for me.

Introducing Natalie & Irene

My Model Family


I’m Natalie Collier – I’m 44 years old and live in Bunbury, Australia. Modelling is always something I’ve loved and wanted to do.  At the beginning of the course I didn’t have any confidence or posture. Or know anything about the modelling world. I am very happy with this course and I have really enjoyed doing it. I am very excited I have got my confidence back and I can achieve something at my age and now I can follow my dreams to be a model.



I’m Irene, 62 years old and I live in Ohio, USA. This was a dream come true – the Daphne Selfe workshop (Academy) was so motivating and informative. I wanted to get training from a highly respected expert and I got way more than that! The challenging were motivating and kept me on point. I’m still pinching myself …was my dream come true!

How did the Daphne Selfe Academy come about?


The Daphne Selfe Academy has come about as Daphne spends more and more of her time helping people ‘get on’.  For many years she has given free time to work with fashion design students with the highlight being their graduation shows where she has modelled for them.  Daphne works with photographers starting out their careers and even filmmakers.  Many have turned into her personal friends and she realises that she has a lot of experience and knowledge to pass on.  It got her thinking about the models that she meets and works with, who are starting out, who don’t know what to do and the frustrated photographers who repeatedly say “I wish everyone was like you!”

Daphne also has mature friends, even ones from show business who have shocked her when they have expressed how little inner confidence they have as they have got older!  People will fantastic figures and looks who need help to not ‘fade away’.  Daphne comes across many people who with knowledge and training can attain a WOW factor.  “It seems such a waste of this gift of life to be needlessly worrying and holding yourself back so I began asking myself “How can I help?”  From this question together with my daughter Claire (I call her the Model Minder) I have put together the Daphne Selfe Academy #beyourownselfe”.


There is no course that suits everybody and this course may not be for you if:

  • You’re not willing to work hard and apply what you will learn
  • You aren’t really interested in your appearance and how to be like a professional model – is someone pushing or persuading you against your own wishes?
  • You’re expecting a modelling contract to be guaranteed on completion of the course
  • Improvement is of no interest


The Daphne Selfe Academy – setting the standard

“Rather than just teach you cold facts I get you to think things through, observe yourself and others.  Practise practise practise – of course, you will have expected me to say that!  I want you to have a direct experience of what we are covering and how it is going to make a real difference in how you see yourself and others see you too”.

  • Being a graduate of the Daphne Selfe Academy is a positive addition to your life, your resume and your future dreams and plans
  • No hard selling of expensive portfolios or other worrying things you may have heard of in the modelling world.
  • A lot of good old tried and tested disciplines and attitudes all right up to date!

Daphne is so looking forward to you being part of Daphne’s Model Family.  Daphne is confident that you will be delighted with the results you will achieve on completion of the course.  There is a money back guarantee if you are dissatisfied.
