How to start modeling? What are famous recruiter model agencies? Should model career start with smaller ones?
Asking not for me, but for my friend, who has specific appearance which IMO stands for modeling. I guess he could fit for "heroin chic" aesthetics of SLP (he's tall skelly blond).
The problem is he's also from 3rd world country (spoiler: Russia), big opportunities with small number of options.
is clear skin a huge requirement?
i have the perfect modelling aesthetic for something like SLP (6'1, 125lbs) and have often been complemented on my jawline/cheekbones
problem is i have mild acne aswell
Ive been signed with 2 agencies in Amsterdam both a big one and a smaller one and the smaller one is way better because they acc give u attention. But ueah i got scouted so idk how much help i can be
Once shopping and once at work. as for what they look for it differs with every agency, generally speaking dutch agencies dont get you jobs theyre mother agencies and try to get you to foreign ones. De boekers is decent, elite is good, iamelk is good idk about other ones except known which is the one im with now but its very new so idk how much work theyll get me. But yeah just send polaroids to their mails if u want feedback
My friend went to korea to model for three moths,there were 16 people in his group from all over the world and half of them were russian.
Contact the biggest world agencies,send them your polaroids via e-mail, and pray that they will find you interesting.
Also dont rely on scouting,contact them and send them your pictures,you got nothing to lose man.
At this point nothing, i didnt do anything for 6 months and didnt sign with my new agency Til 2 weeks ago. That being said its just a matter of getting to foreign agencies and getting into fashion weeks, thats the real money, editorias and smaller shows are nice but wont earn u much unless youre lachowski. Remember that getting signed to an agency is no guarentee of getting jobs
no, agencies give you a skin care routine or will tell you to contact a dermatologist and will give you make up to buy from a shop that will match your skin so it's not that big of a deal
hello it's slp anon can somebody save what i write so that it can just be copy and pasted? i hate having to write it out each time but feel bad for not sharing my knowledge
going for a bigger agency doesn't mean you'll get bigger. Bigger agencies tend to prefer having people with already some experience, they have big clients to work with and don't want to be booking test shoots for noobs.
That being said, if they like you they'll sign you and will do exactly that. Smaller agencies are a better bet imo, they're more likely to worth with you to build your portfolio to actually get you some work. Clear skin isn't a requirement, it's preferred obviously, my skin is pretty alright, but i've met models with pretty bad skin and they've never had a problem.
Aesthetics are really vague, i think you need a "look", mine would maybe be my extreme height and thinness? i don't know, but i guess height, jawbones, facial symmetry all that is important i suppose, but in my honest opinion i think it's important to be yourself and be charismatic, even model faces are easy to forget, be impressionable.

Becoming a model is my dream.
I am 18 years old and I'm from Poland.
Im 183 cm and weight 73kg. I wish I was taller 3 cm.
I have pale, clean skin, blond hair, good ears, good jaw, chin. Kinda androgynous.
I don't only know how to start. If I make portfolio on maxmodels, I doubt there are any chances to be hired by agency.
When I finish highschool I am going to do something with regards to my future.
as someone who's actually been signed twice, modelling shouldn't be your dream. it's a tough business and you can earn a lot more money doing other things. also if you're 183 you better be lachowki/lucky blue level of attractive because that's just too short.
I'm 6'2", 152 lbs, might be too ugly tho. Used to get mistaken for a girl a lot when I was younger because I had longish hair. Started growing a light beard so that would stop happening. Pic related is me though. Give me your honest opinion on my long ass face
slp anon again
best way to practice imo is to practice in the mirror, just try things, and think of where you would use it. also maybe just try acting looser in front of the mirror, a lot of guys are quite stiff and as androgony is a thing now you gotta be looser
i started at 19
i got scouted. Send some photos to a local agency they do genuinely take that shit seriously, their job is to find new faces, if new faces turn up at their door they will look seriously, it saves them a lot
overall modeling isn't fun, it's long, boring, stressful. You have to live off one time payments and it's difficult, you never know where your head is at because your agency will always be slow. I'm a part time student which is the only reason i did it, but i recommend everybody to atleast try get in
When you practice front of a mirror, what should you aim for , like do I need to know every good angles for me , should I practice walking.
And when you send photos for a portfolio to an agency , should you send shirtless photos?
no you don't need to know your own angles, just do it to make yourself aware of your face, so you can kinda get an idea of what you're doing when you can't see yourself, for example maybe practice a certain look you think is sexy
practice walking? lol do you not walk every day? in the male world there's no "catwalk" you just walk however you normally walk, i'm 6'5 so i have to make sure i don't pace it
send like 3 photos of you topless, 3 profiles. then 1 photo of you clothed posing, head on
clothing is important i suppose, i mean you can wear whatever the fuck you want, but owning fashion doesn't make you fashionable, wear something that flatters you but make sure your clothes don't limit the context they can view you in
just wanna make sure i don't mislead you and you fuck up the photos
take a picture of yourself in the following:
1) topless, head on
2), topless, left side
3) topless, right side
4) clothed, straight on, with a pose
don't worry about the pose just lean against the wall or something, maybe learn to hold your hands in weird ways lol have fun guys
5'10 and was on the beach with my gf and one girl was scouting people and basically only asked us if we wanted to be models out of a lot of them in there
probably just something shady or whatever but always an ego booster
