Answering a Reader Question #325
I want to start eye modeling but have no idea how! I'm writing you in order to find out how to get started with this. What do I need to do to become an eye model?
Hi, Anonymous! Eye modeling falls under the category of "parts modeling." So ideally, you'll want to look into modeling agencies with a parts modeling division. Not all agencies represent these types of models but it is an in demand niche so if you're in the right market/location, you could find a local agency to get signed to so they can begin submitting you for this type of work.
Below are two agencies that specialize in parts models, including eye modeling:
Parts Models - New York
Body Parts Models - Beverly Hills, CA
As with pursuing other types of modeling, you'll want to check the websites of the agencies within a 2 hour's drive from where you live. See if they list "Parts Modeling" as one of their divisions--if not, move on to the next agency website. If there aren't any agencies in your area that represent parts models then you'll more than likely have to do freelance modeling, which means acting as your own agent and finding your own work for castings that need eye models.
