  • What qualities are required for modeling?

    You need to want to be a model and be committed to achieving it! It might sound obvious but it is amazing how many prospective models realize they can't do a shoot for many weeks and then give up.

If you provide a phone number or email address you should always return contact promptly.

  • Are there any restrictions for different categories of modeling?

    Different types of modeling have different requirements. For example, catwalk has some specific requirements for size.

    A modeling agency can help you to get work and represent you for potential modeling jobs that are required by clients. However, as a result of the internet, a large number of glamour or nude models now are able to work freelance with their own websites or portfolio hosting sites to generate leads for work.

    We believe repetition of video footage is one of the best ways to prepare a model for his/her next professional photo shoot. By looking in on an actual photo shoot, you will benefit from the exact same information that a professional model gets, but at a fraction of the cost of a paid shoot. We want to bring the professional photo shoot experience to you so you can gain the same valuable information and demonstration tips from experienced professionals within the modeling industry.

    Our intention for our ModelCoach products are for the consumer to get the most realistic look at the professional fashion photo shoot experience. By watching the shoot live you are able to see a model move from one movement to the next with the added benefit of a fashion photographer’s indispensable instruction. There is nothing else out there that we have found (except an actual photo shoot where you are a participating model) that can give you that. We do like the idea of practicing what you view in our videos either in the mirror or in whichever way you feel most comfortable.

  • Why do models have to be tall and slender?

    For both aesthetic and practical reasons, that’s the longtime standard in the modeling industry. A tall, slender body is considered a better "hanger" for a designer’s clothes, both on the runway and in front of the camera (which really does add pounds). Clothing samples are cut to fit tall, slender bodies. For girls, that usually means clothes cut in sizes 4 to 6, fitting for a girl with a minimum height of 5 feet 7 inches. For guys, jacket sizes run from 40 to 42 and clothes are designed for who are minimum height of 5 feet 11 inches. Occasionally, an agency will accept shorter models (especially teenagers who wear large shoe sizes and have tall parents, in hopes that they will continue to grow). Some agencies also have divisions for petite and plus-size models, but the client demand is less for those categories.

  • Why is there an age requirement?

    It's a matter of economics. Most models have relatively short careers. Though many work through their late 20s and early 30s, the average "retirement" age is still comparatively young. The earlier a model gets started, the longer he or she can work. For Model Search, girls must be ages 14 to 22 and guys ages 16 to 24.

  • What other qualities are important?

    Good skin. A great smile. Healthy hair. Long legs. A long, narrow torso. Most of all, models need an outgoing personality and a supportive family

  • What is commercial modeling?

    Commercial models come in all shapes, sizes and ages. Some commercial models are gorgeous woman/ handsome men, and beautiful children, and many successful commercial models look just like everyday people. The individual who has the greatest chance of being chosen to appear in an ad is the one who can believably look like a mom, doctor, business person, plumber, student, grandparent, teacher, dad, etc. The best part about commercial modeling is that it is not necessary to have that “perfect” look in order to be successful.
