I am an aspiring model and basically here is my position. I am turning 18 in April and have been preparing for a trip to New York in June. I have zero modeling experience besides my own "photoshoots" of family members taking pictures of me. I am 5'8 117 lbs. hips 32 waist 26 bust 29. I live in Indiana and don't have time or money for local agents. I work 50 hours a week and study modeling all the time. I want to go to New York and go to open calls and castings for top agencies and see what happens. I have a great personality and a lot of modeling knowledge from the internet and such, but like I said no experience. I would love to sign to ford, elite, or IMG and of course do runway. I know this industry is competitive but i think other qualities I have will make up for my height. I am not cocky just confident and being positive towards reaching my goals and I was wondering what you thought about my random trip to New York and if it is realistic or what my chances were? Do I just bring polaroids to open calls? Do you know the process after being signed with a top agency from NYC is like? I know if I can get signed I will network my way to bigger things, but I want to be as prepared as possible for this trip so I don't screw up. lol Do you know what the open calls are like in NYC, or questions they might ask me? Especially being a "newbie" will they try and trick me? Anything you can think of that will help me I would really appreciate! I am glad I found this blog because you have experience and internet only provides so much. lol
