Answering a Reader Question #331

My son is absolutely gorgeous. We hear this all the time. He has a killer smile and the small body frame which will never get much bigger. I would like to get his face out there but dont know where to start. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for the help 

Hi MinnieS! The best way to jump start your son's modeling career professionally would be to find local agencies that represent male models. You'll want to look for agencies that are within a 2 hour's drive from where you live. These days agencies have official websites that list all you'll need to know in order to send in a submission. Because not all agencies ask for the same materials, you'll have to prepare each submission accordingly.

At this point, don't worry about getting professional photos or putting together a portfolio--this isn't necessary. Agencies prefer to receive non-professional, digital snapshots, which you can easily take yourself in your home. Here is a link that explains why snapshots are ideal and also has reference images of a top male model's snapshots:
