Quick Tip #58

Category: Agency Submissions
For: Male & Female Models

When reading through the instructions listed on a modeling agency's website for how to submit yourself, if they mention the word "snapshot(s)" that means you should send them non professional, digital photos...not professional images!

Unless the website specifically says it is okay to send professional pictures (or if they let you submit both pro and non pro) only send digital snapshots. Failing to do so could mean automatic rejection. Why? Because you didn't follow directions!

So save your professional images for the interview/casting call and use the snapshots to get your foot in the door. Remember, you don't need professional images or a portfolio (in most markets) for agencies to consider new models for representation.

A question!
Hello Dania, and thank you for this blog :)
I was at an open casting for an agency, and they seemed really interested. A couple of weeks later, I was there and took some more photos. Then they said they wanted to do a test shoot and decide if they wanted me or not :)
This was about a month ago, I called today and found out that my 'contact person' had been replaced...so the new one asked me to come by next week...and I'm worried!
What do you think will happen? I'm worried they'll change their mind about the test shoot. Should I expect them to take more pictures? What should I wear, what should I bring??
I'm just very confused, and you were the only person I could think about asking...
(oh, and by the way, I'm a girl fron Sweden, 15 years old, 5'10, my measurements are 31-24-35)

Thank you :)
Hope you understood my questions :P
