How to Get Noticed
You can often send basic photos of yourself in to credible agencies who are good at unearthing new talent. Grooming is important, though initially, professionally edited images are not required. Talent scouts do not want to see fake looking pictures given the beauty treatment. Top agencies also hold open days or you can schedule an appointment to visit for a chance to be seen.
A portfolio of images is required when applying for jobs and going to casting sessions. These should not be selfies or images taken by amateur photographers. There is a standard which is required to help you get noticed, and simply relying or amateur judgement of what to include could be a disservice. Consulting credible professionals in the industry is a good idea. 10-20 images to suit the job style is best, and this can be in a photo portfolio style (8x10" size prints), or even on an iPad or Tablet.
Once established you or your agency will need to have COMP CARDS printed to promote you. These are essential to success. See ADVANTAGE products page.
We also support credible fashion photographers and can link you up with one charging fair rates if required.
Please be very aware that models are a popular target for predators and scam artists.
Being listed on social media or public model casting websites means you are a target.
DO NOT send your photos unless you have a legitimate email address and business details check out. So call an agency or business office number to confirm details first.
Other ways to be scammed are via some TALENT/MODEL AGENCIES that charge big joining fees or for a test shoot. Many agencies who lack integrity will talk big, then charge hundreds of dollars to join, thousands for development, then rarely or never give you work... that's how they make money.
