Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Im interested in doing this...not as a career but something part time, before I start workin on my music, or something I can just get my money off to buy music equipment..or just save for the future and college..and no I dont mean any porn shiet. LoL
Ppl have said I should be a model, and lately Ive been thinkin about it...I dont want to be a runway model or anything, I'm still a teen and I dont want to be on the road all the time or anything...
So does anyone have any thing they might share w/ me, or any info that I might find usefull? Links too?? Thanks....

    Not sure how old you are, or where you live, but be very careful when putting portfolios together and signing with agencies. Never hand over any money upfront, and if you're young take a relative or older friend with you. It can be tough, competitive, exploitative, and your self-esteem can be knocked by constant rejections just because the way you look is not 'right' for the season.

    Most agencies are looking for someone who is above a certain height. If you aren't tall enough you may be wasting your time looking for catalogue or catwalk work.

    my cousin started modeling when she was 18...i dont know much about it, but first thing you need to do is get a good photographer and have a portfolio made. once you have your portfolio made, your photographer can help you find the best way to get into the business.
