Answering a Reader Question #302
my name is Cara and i'm 19, i've been trying to model for a couple years on the side, but sports injuries have kept getting in the way. now i am trying more actively, and all of my friends tell me i should model for VS. i've been looking into major as my agency. I'm 5'11 with 33-25-35 measurements and can actually walk in heels, the higher the better! any words of advice for me?
Hey, Cara! My best words of advice would be to submit to Ford and Elite in New York before Major. These two agencies are contracted to be the first places VS goes to scout their new faces from. Then they move on to the other big agencies. So go for Ford and Elite first. If you get signed to either one, then you're on your way. If they aren't interested, then submit to Major and see what happens. To increase your odds with the agencies, attend their open casting calls so you can be evaluated in person instead of them just judging you based on photos. Don't forget, you don't need professional photos or a portfolio since you're a newbie. Make sure you visit the Ford and Elite websites, which will tell you when their open casting calls are, as well as what types of snapshots they want you to bring. Good luck!
