So you've got your first portfolio ready and what next?
How to get into castings, jobs and agencies?
Where to start?
As we all know the Internet is the right answer for all of these questions and also the easiest way to show to the world your possibilities.
Creating a profile in social media and uploading your modelling photos is a good thing to do but it is not enough though.
First of all you should create your profile on the biggest modelling portals.
Model Mayhem would be the first one on the “to do” list. You should create a profile, upload your photos (they accept only professional images to be uploaded on the profile) and start to get connections through the website. You can contact photographers, makeup artists, there are many casting calls for various kinds of modelling jobs as well.
The truth is that you need to send your photos to people in order to get the job, they are not going to find you on their own (at least not at the beginning of your career).
StarNow is another website with a big number of job offers and casting calls. You even do not have to create a profile in order to apply for jobs.
There are many of websites like these. You have nothing left but to have a look and start sending your portfolio! You can also try the ones listed below (in order to apply for these jobs you have to create a modelling profile on their websites)
When you have a look at the job offers you may notice that some of the jobs are not paid or expenses paid but as you have no or little experience it is still a good opportunity to apply for this job. You will get more experience, some photos and what is the most important – connections. If they like you they could recommend you to some other (maybe paid) jobs. Making friends and staying in touch with people you are working with is very important in this industry.
So don't waste your time and start creating your modelling profile!
