Answering a Reader Question #267
How hard is it to become a model? If i give some of my physical look can you answer, because i am interested but dont know how to go about starting modeling while i am still in school.
Hi, Ashley K! To keep it straight to the point: modeling is very hard. It's even harder to be a successful model who can do it full time. However, the only way to find out if you have a shot is to put yourself out there and submit to modeling agencies who can help you further your career.
You're more than welcome to email me some photos for an evaluation, just as long as you understand that I don't work for or have connections with any agencies, so my opinion on whether you have the right look or not may not be the same viewpoint as the agencies you choose to submit to. But I'd be more than happy to review your images and provide feedback. You can send them to: email@example.com.
As far as modeling while still in school, agencies work with models that are also students all the time. They do their best to work around your school schedule and if you have to miss classes for a day, they are considered excused absences. So you don't need to worry about that affecting your academics. Here's a link to a blog post I did about modeling while in school that will help give you a better idea about balancing the two:

Hope that helps and good luck to you!
