Many people think that after you cross 25 years old, becoming a model is not realistic. While that may be true for big modeling agencies that only work with a specific type look, models come in all shapes, sizes and ages. That’s a fact!
In 2020, most advertising is done with commercial models which represent a look of the masses.
To get started as a model, you have very few options out there. Most aspiring models think that getting photographs and submitting to modeling agencies is their best bet. This is wrong. Agencies only work with a specific look at an exact time.
Also, most commercial agencies want you to have experience if they sign you. Why on earth would a modeling agent take 20% for a model who has never booked a job or casting in their life? To become a model, you have to actually have first hand experience on set. Whether that be a student film, or a local runway show, agencies like experience.
The best time to get started as a model is when you are committed and actually serious. Many people dream of modeling, very few are actually committed to achieving success!
