my baby sister modeled for YEARS.  basically she hit every agency in the land lol… beware of the be discovered convention type things, they all ended up being gimmicks and scams for her.  i would definitely put your pix on model mayhem because they always have new photogs looking for folks you may also want to contact bridal shows in the area because they usually are looking for models to do the bridal shows and model the gowns.  and you could also chat with other models to see what they’d like etc.

@blondie: my baby sister lol!! she’s not in an agency she was a few years ago (she hasn’t modeled in about 5 or 6 years).  as far as print goes i’m not too sure, she was more of a run way model.  i think though maybe you can call the local boutiques and ask them when they do casting calls because they usually run ads, etc with models in them.. at least around here they do.  you may also want to go to like the local photography schools and sit in and be their subjects and that also will sort of get your name out there and possibly more pictures for your portfolio….

contact local photographers in the area, sometimes they run workshops for other photogs and may need models…

i did a bit of modeling when i was younger before deciding it wasn’t for me (was represented by NEXT in nyc, did some catalog work…kaCHING$$, but too stressful/degrading to me).  i’m seconding crebre’s advice: do NOT go to conventions, they’re scams, and hit up ALL the agencies you can find.  a lot of them now have online pic submission options, where you send them your stats and some images and they’ll contact you if interested. but the ABSOLUTE best thing to do is go to the agencies in-person.  if possible, browse their portfolios online to see if they have models of your age, body type, and market suitabilities, then see if they have open calls.  if that info is not listed on their website, call them! most agencies have open calls and this is the best option for being seen.  at most of the open calls i did, you were basically ‘observed’ by one or several agents, then they’d either have you walk, if you were being considered for runway work, or interviewed, or some combination.  

 

good luck! it’s harder work than most think, but the money can be great if you have a good, honest, hard-working agent and a good ‘look’ for the moment you’re working in!
