Hello everyone, I’d like to introduce you to Reza,
She had modeling images done for an upcoming audition in L.A. and is shopping for the right agency to represent her.
Thinking about becoming a model in Seattle?
When applying to an agency they’ll want some portraits of you for reference.
These portraits must have:
- A plain background
- No retouching
- Not much make-up
- A close up of your face
- A full body shot
- Clothing with no distracting patterns
When it comes to choosing an agency, remember this:
A legitimate agency will take 20% of your earnings. This is how they make their money.
An illegitimate agency will ask you to pay them money up front to “make you a model.” This isn’t standard practice, and you don’t necessarily need to be trained on how to be a model.
