Breaking into the world of modeling is quite a challenge in todays competitive world. However there are some things you can do to not only improve your chances in finding a good agent but also to protect yourself when you find one. Finding an agent shouldn’t be all about if they will accept you; you must be satisfied with them as well.

Below are a few tips to help you out:

Tip 1: Build a suitable portfolio- This is a very important step. Any agency you go too will want to see your portfolio. Setting up quality head shots will help them see you. Make sure they are taken with mild make-up and they are able to see your face clearly. It is important not to overdo them it will be hard for the agent to see the working template if there is too much or your face is hidden.

Tip 2: Be Persistent- This is important because there will be many “Rejections” in your search. You must understand that just because you are not suitable for one agent doesn’t mean you are not perfect for the next. Keeping high spirits will make it easier to move to the next prospective agent.

Tip 3: Find an Agent You are Comfortable with- Learning to be confident in yourself and not settling is another important step. Find an agent you feel comfortable working with take your time and remember you are placing your career in their hands.

Tip 4: Make sure your Interests are Protected– Quite often when someone places a contract before us we are so excited we don’t read it thoroughly. Be sure you take your time and don’t rush into it. If you are not sure about the contract take it to a lawyer have them read it. If they are a good agent they will understand.

Take your modeling seriously and don’t rush it. It will come just have the confidence and don’t settle for what looks good!

Until next time,
