How do you get started in modeling?
The first step is to find out what type of modeling you meet the requirements for. If you are 5'5"-5'7" then you can do commercial/print. 5'8"-6'0" is for fashion/runway/editorial modeling. Male models are typically required to be between 5'9"-6'2".
Having agency representation is the best way to break into the industry and book the highest paying work. To find an agency do an online search according to your city/state and browse through each agency's official website. The website will list the type of models they represent, the specific requirements and how to submit yourself. You will also find contact information. Send in your photos or attend an open casting call and if you are what they are looking for, they will invite you for an interview, offer you a contract and begin developing your modeling career.
Freelance modeling is also an option but this means putting together your own portfolio and finding your own work. This is done by networking and working with photographers, using casting websites and other online resources to give yourself exposure.
