Six Facts To Safeguard You From Getting Scammed


Fact #1

You don’t need a fancy portfolio. If an agency takes you on, it will create one for you.

Fact #2

To get a good agent, email three snapshots of yourself (one smiling head shot, one non-smiling head shot, and a full-length bathing-suit shot), plus your measurements, to well-known agencies.

Fact #3

The top firms are in New York City: Ford, IMG, DNA, One Management, Women Management, Click, and Elite. There are dozens of legit smaller agencies that book big jobs, but just do your research to make sure they’re reputable.

Fact #4

Modeling schools are not necessary; most won’t help you get your foot in the door.

Fact #5

A good personality goes a long way. Nice models often get hired over more beautiful girls who aren’t as pleasant.

Fact #6

You need to be at least 5 feet 8 inches, slim (ideal measurements are 34-24-34), and preferably under 20.
