have been modeling for a while and I do it
for fun. This is something I have always
dreamed of doing but I made a lot of mistakes
along my path. I will always believe in myself
and I hope you all do the same.
So without further delay here's what it takes:
Stay in shape!!!
2. Test shoot for pictures with a friend or relative to get an idea of your
look (ex: sports, youth , lingerie etc.)
3. Find a photographer who gives you
the rights to your pictures. This means
you should have the negatives,
all the pictures and they can not charge you extra for them. Also the photographer
CANNOT use them for his or her own use without your permission.
4. Go to New York, see what they say,
it never hurts (too short, too fat,
big boobs, or your perfect).
5. Choose about 6 good pictures that
make you look different. This is what
the game is all about , diversity,
to see how you can change your look.
6. Get composite cards done. Comp cards
are a mini-portfolio of about 3-5 different
looks of yourself on a
5 by 7 card, they cost about $150.00-$250.00
for about 100 cards.
7. Go online to find the top ten modeling
agencies in NYC (Ford, Elite, Next,
IMG, etc.) to mail those comp cards out.
you want to stay in Philly, go online
to find the top 5 agencies in Philly
or your home town and do the same.
8. Don’t forget about your personal
portfolio. Go to Kinko’s with
the photos from your shoot and make
copies for $1.00 each and fill a black
portfolio book (also from Kinko’s)
with the rest of your pictures. This
book should be used for your call backs
and go see’s. (call back- when
the agency calls you back; Go see-
when you go see the agency in person
9. Don’t give up if they say no
because all models have to live with
and up to rejection.
10. The total cost for this can be from
$1000.00-$2000.00 but if you do it
right you will never have to do it again,
