All about how to start modeling, becoming a model, and your modeling career information..
Starting your modeling career will not be easy. Many successful models started their careers effortlessly.  While on a school excursion in San Paulo, Brazil, Giselle Bundchen was eating a Big Mac when she was discovered by a scout from a top modeling agency.  Her response was “I don’t want to be a model, I want to be a volleyball player.” But after being selected for Elite’s Look of the Year, she moved to New York to begin her modeling career.  Since you probably won’t be that lucky, there are other ways on how to start your modeling career. Below are important modeling career information

MODELING AGENCIES
To sign onto a modeling agency, you can stop by or schedule an appointment. Look for all the agencies in your area. If a modeling agency doesn't have “open calls” or they are a long time away, ask to book an appointment or just drop by.  You should do this with as many modeling agencies as possible.  Tyra Banks was turned down by four modeling agencies! In 1991, Elite,one of the top modeling agencies in the world, signed her on, and 17-year-old Tyra headed to Paris for fashion shows. Read more >
