What you might need to know to start, however, is that often times beginning models aren’t going to be selecting a thing, the agency is going to be selecting you, however, you might have a look that’s really in demand right now, which might allow you to have a little more say in the subject. If so, these are what you’re going to need to do, you’re going to want to research Online or look in publications, to find out what agencies are actually available.
Figure out what kind of model you’re going to be, a print model, a runway model, and find an agency that specializes in that. You’re going to want to have photos taken and you’re going to want to send a head shot, a three quarter length and a full length shot to the agency, they don’t have to be professional, in fact, most agencies prefer that they’re not and that you look rather natural in the photographs. Send a cover letter and those letters to the appropriate agencies and be sure you address the package to the person in charge of the department you’re hoping to model for, like petite, children’s, parts, just to name a few.
You’re going to need to be patient while you await their responses but when you do get called for an interview, schedule it on their time, definitely not yours, if they want to see you, go now. With that said, you don’t have to make a decision to sign with them right away, you can be discerning, you can have them be patient as well but always be polite and professional.
Once you’ve interviewed with several Gold Coast Model Agencies, you can take the time to decide what one’s going to work best for you. You can ask other models, you can pose questions on modeling forums Online, you definitely want to feel comfortable with your agency. When an agency signs you and sends you on jobs though, you have to be professional at all times because it’s their reputation too. Make sure that you’re professional with your agent and on the jobs but, like I said before, you don’t have to decide right away, this is your career, ask them “how do you plan to market me”? that’s absolutely fair. Lastly, good luck, sometimes it takes models a long time to get agents.”
