I would advise you search and research modeling agencies what they stand for, who they have/are working with, models they have managed as well as what is required of you. Meet the requirements and you're on your way to becoming a model

Hi Braden,

Although the path to becoming a model is different for everyone, here are the five most common steps to get started:

Decide what type of modeling to pursue. You may be surprised how many avenues there are for professional models: fitness modeling, curve modeling, editorial or commercial modeling, parts modeling, and more. You’ll need different skills—and a different look—depending on the type of model you hope to become.

Create a modeling portfolio. Start by taking a headshot and appropriate full-body shots, You can hire a professional photographer or try and find an up-and-coming photographer on Instagram who’s willing to work with you, but BE CAREFUL.

Practice, practice, practice. Professional feedback, particularly in the early stages of your modeling career, is vital. Otherwise it may be difficult to determine your best angles, poses, and facial expressions. Test shoots are a great place to get experience—and get more material for your portfolio.

Attend model casting calls. Subscribe to an online casting platform and research listings of local model castings and open calls. Once you arrive, you’ll sign in for a slot—and then it’s up to you to impress the casting team.

Get signed by a modeling agency. Once you’ve built up enough experience to approach an agent about representation, it’s time to do your research. See which agencies represent models like you, as well as what they want in a submission. With an agent on your side, you’ll be able to book bigger, higher-profile modeling jobs.

Best,
