These days as well as going to open castings at agencies looking for new faces you can do it via the comfort of your home through the magic of the internet. Almost all agencies have a ‘become a model’ section and application form. If you find an agency that you think fits with your look and aspirations then there is nothing lost by sending in an application! However when send an application to any model agency there are a few things you should consider:
Firstly read the agencies requirements of models if they have height preferences and you do not meet them then maybe you should reconsider your application. As horrid as that sounds they have written it there for a reason.
Secondly the images you send, the agency may require certain shots eg a head, profile and full length so it is best to follow these. Also the images you choose should be natural and unedited. Remember that you do not need professional photographs a model agency can judge your potential from any snapshot so please don’t waste a lot of money on unnecessary professional photoshoots.
Finally, as disheartening as it may be an agency receives many, many applications from aspiring models each day so if you don’t hear back then don’t be disheartened they won’t have the time to reply with advice to every application they receive.
Hope this little bit of advice is of use to you aspiring models, and best of luck in your application!
