Answering a Reader Question #106
My name is Kenzie and i really would like to start modeling but i don't know where to start! and i have no one to really help me out with it, im from Portland OR but i'm recently living in North Dakota, but i'm moving back to Portland soon (: the only agencies around are in the capital city Bismarck. I'm 16 years old, 5"6 and 115 pounds, do you think i could start?
Hi, Kenzie, thanks for the question! At your current height and weight you meet the requirements for commercial/print modeling. Unless you can get to 5'8" high fashion and runway agencies won't be very interested in signing you.
That being said, your best bet is to find a legit agency in your area that represents commercial/print models. Since you are going to be moving to Portland, you'll want to submit to agencies there. Depending on how soon you'll move, it may not be a good idea to try and find an agency in North Dakota right now...unless you have a year or more until the big move. If you need help finding legitimate agencies to submit to, shoot me an email (you'll find my email address under my Blogger Profile page) and I'll be able to give you further assistance.
Below are links to other blog posts I've done that will help you figure out how to get started in modeling:
