Every day I receive requests on how to becoming a model. Things like how to get started, finding and contacting a modeling agency, and getting a first photo shoot. How to get started: Before you get started doing anything, you should ask yourself these questions as they will help guide you for the rest of the process. What do I want to get out of modeling? What am I willing to put into becoming a model What kind of model do I want to be? Fashion, Runway, swimsuit, sport,etc. How flexible am I for traveling and for time Once you evaluate these questions, There is two ways you can go. One is to contact a modeling agency which I will explain below.
The other method is to act like your own agency and create your own portfolio. This is easily done over the internet, now with several places in which you can post pictures, and information on yourself to attract talent scouts. If you choose to go the traditional route and to work with a modeling agency, It can be hard at times to know first of all how to find a good one, and what to look for in a modeling agency. You can easily look up and find agencies in phone books
or online,etc. Before you do any of that, I would recommend contacting anyone you know, that is a model, and finding out about some of the experiences that they have had with modeling and general, and also specifically with different agencies in your area.
