Answering a Reader Question #185
Hi there :)
I'm a new reader to your blog so I'm catching up on your posts. I apologize if something similar has already been posted.
I have been interested in modeling for years, however I always prioritized my academics so I've graduated from high school and graduated from college, afterwards I got pregnant (whoops) and now that my daughter is over a year old (and I am going to be 25 in a couple months) I have really been looking into modeling. I want to pursue my dream before it really is too late. It seems like so many girls start before they're even out of high school nowadays. Do you think 25 years old is too late to start a modeling career? And do you have any advice for someone getting "late start"?
Hi, Anonymous! No problem...I've got a lot of posts so it can be difficult to find exactly what you're looking for. :-)
25 isn't too old to start modeling if you pursue commercial/print. Fashion agency models usually cap off the age limit at 22 but the age range is open for the print modeling industry. You'd fall under the category of a "print" or "lifestyle" model. There is a lot of demand for women in their mid to late 20s and older so if you can manage to find an agency with a print/lifestyle division, you'll definitely be able to get your feet wet in the industry.
Here is a link to a blog post I did about the subject of lifestyle and mature modeling that you should check out:
