Finding a professional model agency is not an easy task, and is it not for the faint hearted person.
Finding a professional model agency is a hard work task and can be very fruitful in terms of money, career, fame and other advantages.
Build your own book or portfolio
Before you start searching for a model agency, you need a good presentation of yourself. You need something to speak for you and your modelling abilities.
You’ll need to get a book together. Book meaning a collection of images that sell yourself as a photographer.
Your book, can be a printed book, on a tablet, simply your website, or what has become more and more common, a well designed PDF.
Your modelling book is your best selling tool and you should definitely have it on digital form, so to be easy to send and to share.
Prepare to get massive action
Massive action in modelling means massive exposure and getting in touch -l mean getting in touch and keeping in touch with as many model agencies as you can humanly handle.
Massive exposure is the key secret of maintaining momentum so to start getting small jobs or small jobs proposals.
Compare the model agencies
After meeting or getting in touch with some model agencies, you will see which one is a good fit for you and it is about time to start working out into conclusions.
Some good questions or criteria to ask and note down are:
- Do the model agency has a good marketed website?
- Do they have a team of people?
- Do they have the needed experience to boost your career?
- Are they experts in modelling or just beginners?
- Who are the other models they represent?
Some of the above questions may seem trivial to a beginner’s eye, but they are so significant that they can define your daily working life for the next couple of years or more. So be careful and not so carefree when deciding for the first time which model agency is a good fit for you.
