Answering a Reader Question #247
Hello! I'm 18 years old and live in Calgary Alberta Canada. I've been scouted twice by a small agency in my hometown called numa models, and scouted 3 or 4 times by mode models. However I haven't really done anything to pursue a career in modeling even though I would love to. I know Heather Marks is signed with mode models, as well as Simon Nessman. Do you think this modeling agency could be considered a 'top' agency?
Thank you :)
Hi, Laura! The fact that Mode currently represents two top models like Heather and Simon is a good sign that they are a "top" agency. What helps define an agency's credibility and rep includes the caliber of the models they have on their roster, whether or not they represent any top and in demand models and the names of the clients they've worked with. If they also operate in a Mother Agency role for placing their models internationally, that is also a good sign that they know what they're doing. If you've been scouted by Mode, definitely take that first step and proceed with getting an interview with them to see if they would indeed like to offer you a contract.
Getting a modeling career off the ground will only happen if you take action. :-)
Good luck to you!!!
