Answering a Reader Question #335

Anonymous Wrote:

Hi I am 34 year old asian male, well skinny, I have been told I don't look older than 26 years old. I wanted to go for modelling but life got into it's ways, hence now I am thinking about it again. 1) do u think it's to late 2) what is the best way forward if age is not an obstacle 

Hi, Anonymous! To answer your first question, no, it's not too late. :-) To answer your second question, you'll want to look into agencies that represent commercial/print and/or lifestyle models, which is the category you fall under because of your age. Should you end up getting signed, it'll be up to your agency to decide whether they'll consider representing you for other types of modeling.

Do an online search for modeling agencies that are within a 2 hour's drive from where you live. Each agency website will have info/directions stating how to send them a submission and what types of photos they want to see. Wait to find out what each agency wants in terms of photos before going out and trying to put together a portfolio. In most cases, new models just need non professional, digital snapshots when it comes to submitting themselves for possible representation.

Hi thanks for all the wonderful advice! My question is, is it a good idea to sign with a small agency in a big market like L.A.? Will this lead to bigger opportunities and bigger agencies? Or is it a dead end? Will the get me good gigs? If you've already written an article about this could direct me there? :) Thanks!
