Answering a Reader Question #320
I am so glad I found your blog! Thank you for all of the helpful information. I have always wanted to be a model, and did a very small amount of it when I was 16. After I graduated High School I had thought about getting more involved with the industry but was told I was being "unrealistic" and became a chef instead. I have found over the last few years, that I am not happy in my current career, and would like to finally pursue my dream. I am 24 yrs old, 5' 7" and weigh 125 lbs. I just don't know the proper way to get started. I live in Indiana so there aren't any high end agencies near by, and have been out of touch with modeling for so long that I am not sure the best and most efficient way to get started. Thank you for your help!
Hey, Jenna! I'm glad you found my blog, too, lol! As far as your situation, you'll want to refer to the official websites of agencies in your area in order to find out what the requirements are, how to submit your photos, etc. Not all agencies ask for the same things so prepare each submission accordingly.
Here are the links to Indiana agency websites...browse through them completely and follow the instructions each one gives for submitting yourself. If you don't have any professional modeling headshots to send, that's okay...agencies will be fine with receiving clear, digital snapshots of your face in a closeup, as well as any other types of shots they request. As long as you mention in your submission email or other message that you're new to the industry, they'll be okay with the fact that you don't have pro images yet. That task will be taken care of after you've been signed under the guidance of your agent.
