If you are interested in becoming a model, you may want to participate in a search for models. These searches can be found in various locations and through various venues. You can find postings of model searches, join through an agency, or you can enter an online model search. These searches allow you to be noticed by talent managers and agencies.

Participating in a Search for Models

If you decide to participate in a search for models, you will have to make careful preparations. First of all, you should make sure that you fit the criteria for becoming a model. There are exceptions to the rules, but you will have a better shot if you meet the criteria. Male models are typically 6' tall and are a size 40R. Female models are usually between 5'8" and 6' tall, have measurements of 34B-24-34, weigh between 100 and 130 pounds, and are between the ages of 14 and 21.

When participating in a search for models, you should have a completed modeling portfolio that you can give out at any time. Your portfolio should list all physical descriptions about yourself, including age, weight, height, gender, hair color, eye color, and measurements. The portfolio should be typed and should list your descriptions simply and clearly. You should also include various headshots and full body photographs in your modeling portfolio.

Model searches are designed to connect modeling agencies with new talent. Modeling agencies are always looking for new talent. They receive countless mailings each day, so entering a search can be more effective than mailing your portfolio to certain agencies. Entering a modeling search is a great way to be seen by many different agencies with minimal effort on your part.
