Thanks for all the comments! Going through them, I see that a lot of you are interested in breaking into the modeling industry, so I thought I’d give some tips on how to get started. From what’s shown on television I feel like girls and guys get a very skewed view of what the modeling industry is really about and what is expected of potential models. First thing’s first: You have to be realistic. Just like many other professions out there, modeling has some pretty stringent criteria that is rarely overlooked. Most important is height?most (but not all!) models are at least five eight. The best way to tell if you have what it takes to be a model is to have someone take color snapshots of you with no makeup, natural hair, and wearing fitted clothes (shorts and a fitted tee or a swimsuit work well). You should be photographed against a white background, and you’ll need face shots (smiling and not smiling) and a full body shot. If you live near a major U.S. city for modeling (New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas, Chicago, or San Francisco), call individual agencies to see if they have an "open call." This is a time set aside by the agencies when potential models are invited in for a consultation. Go to this armed with your snapshots. If you do not live close to a modeling hub, don’t worry. Call an agency in one of the larger cities and ask if they work with any smaller agencies in your neck of the woods. You can also send pictures to agencies with all of your pertinent info, including a phone number in case they are interested. Be sure to include your measurements (bust, hips, waist) and hair and eye color. Take lots of pictures because you will not get them back from agencies once you send them. Good luck! And let me know how it goes….
