Submitting Photos – Whether you’re a new model just starting out, or even a model with experience who is looking to expand your representation to bigger markets, these five quick tips will help you get your photos right the first time and improve your chances of getting signed to an agency and getting booked for modelling jobs.
Note: You may already know that most applications get no response ( except an auto acknowledgement email ). In most cases, this is not because of a lack of potential as a talent. Modelling agency usually doesn’t respond if the application does not meet their criteria.
Tips before submitting your photos to modelling agency / Coordinators.
2. Be sure to only send your photos to a modelling agency that accepts the type of model you are. For eg: If they only have openings for plus-size models, and you are not plus-size, you are just wasting the agency’s and your time. You also run the risk of developing a reputation for being unattentive.
3. When sending your photos by email be sure to include all of this information in your email. If you are emailing your photos it is important to have this information Add Details – Your Name, Age, Height, Measurements (bust, waist, and hips for women, and waist and jacket size for men), Current Location, Contact Information (phone numbers, email address), Citizenship (where your passport was issued) & Agencies currently representing you, if any.
Modelling WorkshopHaving an experienced agent or professional modelling agency do the work for you is always the best approach. However, if you want to do it yourself, it’s important to do it properly. Many new models don’t realize that it’s not only the photos that agencies are looking at. It is also how you present your photos to them that matters. Join Modelling Workshop
