Becoming A Model

I don't think it is an unrealistic goal to want to become a model. There are plus sized models and models shorter than 5 feet 4 inches tall. There are male models, older models and even disabled models.

You can even be a model if you are underaged as long as your parents give their permission.

Even though a lot of models have gotten their start by going to New York have you ever considered starting your modeling career in your own home town? You could model for clothing designers in your own home town. I have seen quite a few fashion shows on TV for my own local area so who is to say that there aren't any of these kinds of fashion shows in your own area? Do some checking around. Find the companies that are hiring models and check them out to see if they are legitimate. There is always at least one good lead that can lead you to a start in your modeling career.

If you can't find any modeling opportunities then MAKD YOUR OWN MODELING OPPORTUNITIES! What do I mean by that? Well do you have a webcam? Do you have a website? If you said yes to both of these questions then you could start your own modeling agency with yourself being the model. Take pictures of yourself modeling clothes and put those pictures online. You may not think that that is too much of a start but it is a start!

Treat your modeling agency as a professional modeling agency. Create business cards, flyers and other promotional materials - treat it professionally!
