Modeling Advice Straight From the Source

I can't tell you how many aspiring/new models seem surprised or can't believe it when I advise them to stick to non professional, digital snapshots in order to impress modeling agencies. Sometimes I have to point them to other credible sources to prove my point.

Here is a quick tidbit of modeling advice straight from the mouth of Pamela Frank, modeling scout for Ford Models in Los Angeles:

"Every model should have at least one unfiltered headshot where they are not smiling. The light should compliment all their features, from cheekbones to nose and eye structure and lips. Little to no makeup."

It really is as simple as that, ladies.

Hi Miss Denise!
I'm 12 years old and I'm thinking of submitting to this local agency, and they want a full body shot. On the website it says that they want you to be in a bathing suit or something that shows your body. Do I have to wear a bikini, or can I wear a one piece? Or, better yet, actual clothing? And if yes to the clothing, what should I wear?
Thanks in advance!
